ELVIS YIP KIN BON
After reading “ Qiao xiaoyang’s speech at the conference on 24 March 2013 with the partial at- tendance of members from the Hong Kong Legislative Council ”, I started collecting words used in speeches from newspapers, like the way of anonymous threatening letters, as the irrefutable evidence of a general absurdity, trying to defy the subject matter from the context of the same text itself.
Yip Kin Bon, a mixed media artist, was born in 1989 and raised in Hong Kong. He received his BA degree from Academy of Visual Art, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2013. His practices include collecting, reading, sorting, integrating which are always presented in forms of collage and assemble. He rearranges the context of incidents, objects and time to re ect the absurdity of this world. He currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
