周曉鈞

CHAU Hiu Kwan, Chloe (b. 1998) focuses on interactive media and graphic design. She has picked up an interest in exploring and narrowing the distance between people, since she started approaching spiritual learning a few years ago.

Apart from spiritual learning, CHAU is also interested in indie music in Hong Kong. In recent years, she focuses on graphic design for local independent musicians, overseas bands, and music festivals.

周曉鈞(b.1998)最近專注於互動媒體和平面設計。從幾年前開始接觸靈性學習開始,她就通過自己的互動媒體實踐積極探索和拉近人與她的內心世界的距離。

除了靈性學習,周曉鈞對香港獨立音樂的發展也很感興趣。她近年專注於本地獨立音樂人、海外樂隊和音樂節的平面設計。

'Looking at my bleeding skin, I could smell my body was rotting. In those moments, I can feel my body gradually dying. Those days, when I could not walk freely, seemed like my body turned on the "forced quit mode" for me. Only when I’m underwater, I feel a moment of relief.'

'In the eyes of the bystanders, Eczema has become the norm. Everything seems so light, so light that the imbalance of inner self is persuaded and then lives on as usual.' CHAU Hiu Kwan, Chloe likens Eczema to an unconscious cycle of self-destruction. Just like the viewpoint of animals in an aquarium, they seem therapeutic, but are actually an anomaly. In Imponderable Heaviness, CHAU describes the perception of a patient with Eczema, describing her feelings between the breakage and healing that has been looping around for so many years.

「望着滲出血水的皮膚,我嗅到身體正在腐爛的氣味。在那些時刻,我能感覺到我的肉體在逐漸死亡。那些不能自如走動的日子,仿佛是身體為我開啟『強制停止模式』。唯有在水中的時候,我才感到片刻的緩解。」

「從旁人角度而言,濕疹是一種常態。一切看似很輕,輕得失衡的內在也漸漸地被逼說服,然後如常地過活。」周曉鈞將濕疹喻為一種無意識的自我摧毀循環。就像水族館內動物看似療癒的行為,其實是一種反常。透過《似輕若重》,周曉鈞以一名濕疹患者的角度描述多年遊離於無止境的破損與癒合之間的感悟。
