Xu Beiyi’s jewellery is mainly explore trifling matters in daily, utilizing her own observations and interpretations to remold people’s inherent thinking on particular things, leading audiences to review and reflect conventional perspectives.
It has reflected on work <The label of divorced family> and <Cathartic swearing>. The key content expressed not to overthrow mainstream values, they are just hinting to remind the aspects that you ignored. Those trifling matters which people don’t see the value in are worth discussing as well. For example, in order to display the positive of bad language, the work has adopted the bubble sticks with swearwords and the form of blowing, which can bring a sense of pleasure and give straight feeling to audiences in <Cathartic swearing>.
In addition, the contact between jewellery and people is closely, and the volume of jewellery is relatively small compared with other art forms. Therefore, jewellery is fairly suitable to express personal trifles, the work <time’s destruction> has applied this point of view. It is inspired by a necklace that has been stored for a long time, which is a gift from an old friend. Through jewellery I have told about a friendship disappeared with time passing.
The start points of jewellery creation and materials used can be personal, but the feelings of good works to viewers should be mutual.
