周芷瑤

CHOW Tsz Yiu is interested in studying sports and art, which leads her to pay more attention to body structures and their aesthetic values. Her practice encompasses sculpture and traditional crafts, based on the close relationships between different subjects, such as the relationships between human joints and human bodies. She transforms her observations into simple geometric shapes in order to highlight the details of each piece in a series. She believes her audience would then emphasise more on the structure of human bodies.

CHOW graduated from the Hong Kong Institute of Contemporary Culture, and obtained her Higher Diploma in Sculpture from Hong Kong Art School in 2018.

周芷瑤對運動和藝術的研究感興趣,這使她更加關注身體結構及其審美價值。她的實踐通常環繞以不同事物間的關係為題的雕塑和傳統工藝,例如人體關節與人體之間的關係。她將它們轉化為簡單的幾何形狀以突顯系列中每件作品的關節。

周芷瑤畢業於香港兆基創意書院,並於2018年獲得香港藝術學院主修雕塑的高級文憑。

Tools are an extension of the human body. From the Stone Age till the present, tools have assisted humans to complete different tasks in the face of various physical limitations. Through the integration of physical and physiological principles in tools and human body, Essence returns tools to the human experience of using the body.

工具是身體的延伸。從石器時代至今,工具幫助人類在面對各種物理限制時完成不同任務。透過交融身體部位和其對應工具中的物理及生理原理,《本相》把工具回歸至人類使用身體的自身經驗。
