“經 脈” – 郭倩齊攝影裝置展
“經脈”為郭倩齊的攝影及裝置個展, 展出多件以中、西醫藥為題材的創作。 據她所說,經脈的由來為「在中國醫學內,它是讓能源循環運行的重要部分,以及調節身體機能的通道。這也是中醫師提到的陰陽以及五行……」郭出生於西醫世 家,但因一場疾病對中藥的神奇療效產生無窮興趣,因而出現了透過西醫家庭長大的背景去理解中藥的構想,她並借用祖父及父母的針筒等醫療器具,又將蟾蜍、鹿 筋、蚯蚓等中藥的影像以西醫X光機透視,將中西醫學融和其中,形成獨特的比照。
郭出生於澳門,年少時期移居加州,並取得藝術攝影學士。她曾在洛杉磯、紐約及北京工作。回流香港後設立了自己的工作室,與著名的廣告代理機構合作。幾年前她挑戰自己,全身投入藝術創意空間,積極於澳門、北京、倫敦、吉隆坡等地參與展覽。
