  • 展覽論述

    「The Archival Body」為一系列結合雕塑、攝影、以及錄像的組合式作品,探討現代醫學如何讓我們對於身體上的認知產生改變。如同製作小型紀念碑般地,嘉貞試圖永久保存一位癌症病患被切除,或失去功能的身體部分,也對於我們的身體如何在這些醫療系統的權威下, 失去其完整性而變得更脆弱,來提出質疑。

    當我們正驚訝著醫學科技前進的快速程度,已超乎我們的想像的同時,嘉貞也思考著,在TED演說會上,各方的醫學研究精英,不時發表著他們對於新發現及解救方案的期許與嘗試,這些讓人振奮鼓舞的新希望,卻以滴水穿石似的腳步緩慢地前進。我們還是無法即時停止,這些正在我們身旁消失的身體。

    這次展覽將展出一系列由樹脂、金屬、3D塑料製成的雕塑,以及雕塑的數位攝影作品,另展出一件由身體斷層掃描影像所編輯而成的錄像作品。

    「我們可以看到它們正在逐漸地溶解」以及「X光:集體記憶001」為多組由不同醫用解剖教學模型,所翻模而成的透明樹脂雕塑,以及其數位攝影輸出。其中的紅色染劑象徵著可疑的存在物和生長物,正在擴散或者消失。當病患的生命掌握在這些擴散或者消失的異常細胞,另或者掌握在醫生對於身體X光片的判讀,相較來看,我們唯一可以內視及預測身體與生命的未來之根據,顯得非常的單一。嘉貞以類似醫生察看X光片的角度,來拍攝這一系列樹脂雕塑,再將攝影輸出與原雕塑並置展出。

    「60克為無劑量」為一個由金屬管、金屬條、灌食袋、以及定時打氣裝置所組成的一個如人如物的雕塑,透過吊燈與風琴管的形狀組合,來象徵一般人所追求的奢華與神聖性,並對比性地結合拋棄式的醫用灌食袋與PVC塑料管,來暗示人無論貧富或其社會身份的差異,其身體受創傷時,皆必須仰賴同樣的醫療過程及器材來維持生命的延續。

    「保存一個顎骨」為由一位癌症病患在切除手術前照的顎骨之斷層掃描影像,經由電腦程式轉換後,以3D列印方式所印製出來的塑料雕塑。這個壞死而且斷裂的右下顎骨,為這位病患因接受重劑量和區域重疊的兩次放射療程,所造成多處壞死的局部骨架之一。透過科技的工具,嘉貞試圖替病患保存及再現其所失去和受破壞的身體局部,並提供一種重組其被切斷或移除的身體記憶之可能性。

    About The Archival Body

    “The Archival Body” is a series of modular works including sculptures,
    photographs, and videos, that explores how modern medicine changes
    our physical perception with regard to our own bodies. Like making
    smaller monuments in life-size scale, Lin tries to permanently preserve
    the physical parts that had been removed or disabled for a cancer patient.
    She also questions how our physical bodies lose their integrity and
    become more fragile under the authority of medical systems.

    While Jia-Jen is amazed by how medical technology is moving faster than
    we can imagine, she also notices that these exciting and forward-looking
    discovery and solutions presented by medical experts on TED talks move
    at the speed as dropping water to wear away a stone. We still cannot help
    but be affected by the increasing numbers of lives disappearing around us.

    In this exhibition, Jia-Jen shows a series of sculptures made of resin, metal,
    and 3-D printed plastic and their digital photographs. There is also a video
    animated from CT scan images.

    “We Can See Them Gradually Dissolving” and “X-Ray: Collective Memory
    001” are constituted of clear resin sculptures cast from various medical
    anatomy models and their photographs. Red color tints inside the casts
    symbolize suspicious entities and expanding or disappearing growths.
    When a patient’s life relies on these expanding or disappearing abnormal
    cells or relies on the X-Ray reading by a doctor, what we can only use to
    endoscope and predict the future of lives is rather singular. Lin photographs
    the casts from a perspective much like the way doctors would re-
    examine them, to question decision-making through the human eye.
    She then juxtaposes the photographs and the casts in the presentation.

    “60 Gram Is Non Dose” is a sculpture composed of metal pipes and rods,
    feeding bags, and air pumping machinery. By combining the shapes of
    chandelier and organ pipes (symbols of luxury and spirituality) with those
    of disposable medical supplies, Lin recomposes them into a sarcastic
    mechanical contraption to imply that, when we have physical trauma,
    we all need to rely on the same medical process and medical equipment
    to maintain life, regardless of our financial or social status.

    “Preserving a Jaw” is a 3-D plastic sculpture printed from CT scan images of a cancer patient’s jaw before it was excised. The right lower jaw was one of
    the dead and also fractured skeletons caused by high-dose and overlapped
    radiation therapies. The intention to preserve and represent the lost and
    damaged parts of the patient through technology is to provide the possibility
    to reconstruct its discontinued or removed body memories.
