《六種練習：蘇詠寶個展》是新晉本地藝術家蘇詠寶(Wing Po So)的首次個人展覽，中藥世家出身的她自小受中醫學薰陶，童年時接觸中藥的回憶更成為她的靈感來源，加上她偏愛科幻小說，啟發了蘇詠寶融合中醫傳統哲學和藝術家對人類與自然、宇宙的微觀和宏觀反思。是次展覽的六件藝術品皆用上中草藥和簡單的物料如繩線、黏土和木籤等，創造出有如人體細胞、血管，以至岩石、河流，甚至銀河星系的形態和形象，而本地著名小說家Dung Kai-cheung 董啟章更為其作品撰寫短文。 7月13日，蘇詠寶和董啟章出席了由香港中文大學的何兆基教授和陳育強教授主持的藝術講座，分享是次展覽的創作歷程和背後點滴。
“Six-Part Practice: Wing Po So Solo” is the artist’s first solo exhibition. Born into a family with several generations of history as traditional Chinese medical practitioners, together with the fascination with science fiction novels, So’s artistic practice has been largely related to human-nature relationship, and the micro-macrocosmic structure as found in traditional Chinese medical philosophy. All the six works in this exhibition make use of Chinese medicinal herbs and basic materials such as strings, clay and wooden skewers, creating shapes of human cells, blood vessels, rocks and galaxy. Each piece is accompanied by short texts written by the esteemed Hong Kong writer Dung Kai-cheung.
On July 13, So Wing-Po and Dung Kai-Cheung took part in the art talk hosted by CUHK professors Ho Siu-Kee and CHAN Yuk-Keung, sharing the story behind the creation process.
