Essence Talk Series – Medical and Art Sharing

, 2 Caine Lane, Mid-Levels, Sheung Wan

Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences and Galerie Ora-Ora present Essence Talk Series – Medical and Art Sharing during the month of August. In the four upcoming talks, medical professionals will explore various medical- and health-related topics, which closely relate to Zhang Yanzi’s exhibition at the Museum.

Essence is a rare crossover exhibition that interweaves modern and ancient medicine with contemporary art. Having spent a summer at the Museum as an artist-in-residence, Zhang was deeply touched by the strife, rigor, breakthroughs and passion behind the medical history of Hong Kong. As a result, Essence presents a new body of artwork, which not only blends art and medicine on both visual and philosophical levels, but also demonstrates the artist’s perspective on the journey of life, from birth to decay, through pain and remedy.
