Paris Biennale des Antiquaires will invite Wallace Chan to its 50th anniversary

The Paris Biennale des Antiquaires, one of the most prestigious displays of antiques, rare objects and artworks in the world, will celebrate its 50th anniversary in September this year and will invite Hong Kong-based fine jewellery designer and sculptor Wallace Chan – the first Asian dealer or artisan to take part.

Chan, who created a special collection for the biennale, believes his work represents a shift in Chinese jewellery design, which, aesthetically, has shown little evolution over the past 30 or so years. « Regardless of the level of craftsmanship, a lot of recent Chinese jewellery hasn’t been appreciated by the world. My work combines oriental philosophy with Western techniques, representing a new phase of Chinese jewellery, » he says. Organisers of the biennale are also looking to expand and hope to hold mini fairs in Hong Kong and Istanbul in the near future.
