Portrait_Liv Tsim_2023_edited.jpg

Based in Hong Kong and London, Tsim received training on BA Visual Arts and MA Biodesign respectively at Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University and Central Saint Martins, University of Arts London. TSIM's artworks were exhibited in London, Hong Kong, Berlin, Brisbane, Sydney, Budapest, Helsinki and Shenzhen.

Her practice explores the intersection of bioethics, technology and ecological justice. In view of the environmental exploitation and biological evolution alongside the Anthropocene, Capitalocene and Chthulucene, there is no way we, as any kinds of species, could be exceptional from such ecological chaos. The complex climate emergency is now calling for specific and tentacular speculation.  

 

She speculates on future ecologies of biomateriality and authentic engagement through biodesign, mixed-media installation and biomaterial sculpture. The bio-materiality and authentic sensory experience are efficient methodologies to materialize the possibility of biological magic.

 

She enjoyed working collaboratively with artists, designers, scientists and communities,  to create thought-provoking and participatory artworks that challenge traditional boundaries. It is believed that cross-disciplinary collaboration may broaden spheres of knowledge, accumulate specific observations, advocate speculative visions and foster an inclusive culture. 

詹昫嵐分別於在香港浸會大學視覺藝術學院及中央聖馬丁大學獲藝術 (BA) 和生物設計 (MA) 的學位,現於香港和倫敦兩地工作 。其作品曾在倫敦、香港、柏林、布里斯班、悉尼、布達佩斯、赫爾辛基和深圳等地展出。

作品探索由生物倫理、科技發展與生態公義交織而成的領域。在自然被過度開發與物種被剝削的 「人類世」面前,而我們無法從生態混沌和氣候緊急狀況中置身例外。

有見人類世、資本世和觸生世下的環境開發和生物進化,任何物種在這種生態混亂與他者被缠住在一起。氣候緊急的情況正呼喚的是具針對性的、似觸手般感知的推測。 

 

她通過生物設計、混合媒介裝置和生物材料雕塑,推測具生物物質性與真實參與性的未來生態。(生物)材質性和真實參與性是實踐生物奧秘的有效方法。在以往的項目中,她喜歡與藝術家、設計師、科學家和社區合作,創造引及性和參與性的藝術作品。她相信跨學科合作可以拓寬知識領域、結集推測性的願景和促建構包容性。
