Hilary Yip is an artist working in moving images and animation. First trained in architecture, her practice revolts against the utilitarian focus of her education.
Hilary's work exploits and voids promises and expectations. Her protagonists range from the Millennium Bug that got cancelled, a sourdough that does not get baked, and a film structure that takes the form of a Norman Foster airport floor plan. These disobedient forms destabilize what we know and how we know, exposing how we are obedient - to forms, places, and established narratives. These voids accommodate and recall lost histories, in turn creating a unique form of public speech, a memory work that hopes to claim a small stake in a possible future.
