Awakening of the Mortal body -The process of fighting against cancer by drawings and notes
Phenomenology of Perception
It is a process of a period of my life when I was fighting against breast cancer, just trying to survive. The fear and the anxiety towards not knowing my fate has caused an awareness of my body and the awakening to the suffering of my mortal body. Extending as long as one year, I underwent several medical treatments. These included surgical operations, chemotherapies, radiotherapies, and targeted therapies. The surgical invasions and side effects caused by chemical medicine injections led to some chemical reactions in the mortal body. Merleau Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception investigated the awareness of the body and the priority of perception, which has formed the existence of “I”. The Eastern philosophical ideology of Chuang Tzu, who was Taoist more than 2,200 years ago, has similar principles as one of Ponty’s books, Eye and Mind. This book contains Ponty’s philosophy of “visible horizon” which focuses on the sublimation of pain and gives insight into getting beyond human life in an “invisible world”. As the book said, “this prehumen way of seeing is the same as the painter’s way”.
