Hilary Yip (b. 1994, Hong Kong) is an artist working in film and animation. First trained in architecture, Yip’s practice revolts against the utilitarian focus of her beginnings. The heart of Yip’s practice dwells in absence. Subjects matters devoid of their promises and expectations; an anti-climatic fireworks show, a sourdough that does not get baked, a video drags back and forth, counter to its runtime. These disobedient forms destabilize what we know and how we know it, exposes how we are obedient - to forms, to places, and to narratives. These vacuumed states then accommodate and recall lost histories. They make a unique form of public speech, a memory work that hopes to claim a small stake in a possible future.

Yip now resides and works in London.
