簡介 Biography

Rachel Cheung was born and is based in Hong Kong. After graduating from the Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) programme jointly presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School in 2001, with a major in ceramics, she obtained a Master degree in Fine Arts (Glass) from the University of Sunderland and another Master degree in Fine Art from the Middlesex University in the UK. Her artworks are collected by Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Taiwan Yingge Ceramics Museum.

Rachel was a winner of the ‘Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition 2001’. In 2002, she won the ‘Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme II’ award. Rachel was invited to participate in the International Biennale of Contemporary Ceramics 2006 in Vallauris, France; and the Setouchi Triennale 2016, Japan, Fukutake House Project.

Through the interplay between ceramics and different materials for years, as well as in recently years through community projects, Rachel’s art practice focuses on the exploration of "equilibrium" and "relationship". She believes that the state of equilibrium among relationships can be interpreted from various perspectives, including physical, philosophical and spiritual ones. Equilibrium is also in close connection with changes among relationships. Changes give rise to subtle transformation, different forms of energy, and the formation of new relationships, which then lead to other prominent impacts.

張煒詩於二零零一年獲澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學及香港藝術學院合辨之藝術文學士學位(主修陶瓷)後,獲英國新特蘭大學藝術碩士學位(玻璃)及倫敦密德蕯斯大學藝術碩士學位。張氏於二零零一年獲 「香港藝術雙年展」獎及於翌年獲香港「藝遊鄰里計劃II」藝術家獎。張氏於二零零六年獲邀參加法國Vallauris國際當代陶瓷雙年展。二零一六年獲邀參加日本瀨戶內藝術三年祭Fukutake House Project。作品為香港藝術館、香港文化博物館及台灣鶯歌陶瓷博物館所收藏。

張煒詩作品藉著陶瓷和不同物料探討「平衡」和「關係」。她認為平衡關係的意義涵蓋物理、哲學及精神性。平衡是關於關係和改變,新的關係影響深遠,創造引領出更美好的未來故事。

How can one illustrate his/her own ideas through ceramic medium, which is incorporating both traditional and functional elements, in the context of contemporary art? This is the question that I have been keeping in my mind since I started studying fine art, and up till this day, I am still trying to find the answer.

在當代藝術的背景下,如何以傳統而帶有功用性的陶瓷媒介詮釋自己的想法,這是我由念藝術開始至今漸漸衍生出來所給自己的提問,並不斷嘗試回答。
