Wynn Wynn Ong: Redefining Boundaries


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Yuchengco Museum is proud to host the celebration of Wynn Wynn Ong’s 15 years in fashion and design in a retrospective exhibition entitled Wynn Wynn Ong: Redefining Boundaries. The retrospective will showcase the creative journey of a jewelry designer who is Burmese by birth, but Filipino at heart—from designing handcrafted heirloom jewelry to creating unique collections of art, furniture, couture, and objets d’art. Also on view are 18 portraits of Ong’s muses in their fantasy alter egos captured by model-photographer Jo Ann Bitagcol. Wynn Wynn Ong: Redefining Boundaries will be on view from March 8 to June 15.

Jewelry designer Wynn Wynn Ong continues to redefine what it means to be a woman of style. Her career as a jeweler began in 2001, when she designed pieces for herself that she could not find elsewhere. A lack of formal training was not an obstacle to her success as an internationally lauded artist whose works are now sought after by collectors. Meticulous attention to detail and age-old techniques, such as casting using the lost wax method, ensure the individuality of her jewelry. In fact, Ong never repeats designs and limits the number of pieces she produces each year.


Ong’s works are reflections of her family’s roots in Burma, a childhood in Vienna, summer trips around the globe, and her life now in Manila. She incorporates her interest in environmental sustainability through using local woods and recycled materials. She transforms monkeys, geckos, carabaos, birds, and other Philippine flora and fauna created from precious stones and metals into pendants, necklaces, the handles of cabinets, and minaudieres.









Wynn Wynn Ong: Redefining Boundaries is presented by Yuchengco Museum with support from Wynn Wynn Ong Artisanal Works in celebration of Women’s Month this March. The exhibit will be on view from March 8 to June 15, 2017. Yuchengco Museum is at RCBC Plaza, corner Ayala and Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati City. Museum hours are Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (632) 889-1234, visit www.yuchengcomuseum.org, or follow @YuchengcoMuseum on social media with the hashtags #WynnWynnOng and #RedefiningBoundaries.
