Guo Fengyi is one of the artists featured at Remai Modern until August 22 as part of the exhibition An apology, a pill, a ritual, a resistance. Fengyi (1942-2010) didn’t begin making art until her 40s. She began her practice not as an artistic pursuit but as a method of healing. Forced to retire at age 45 because of severe rheumatoid arthritis, she began practicing qigong, a technique of coordinated movement, breathing and meditation developed to cultivate and balance one’s life force or energy (qi). She credited this practice with unleashing artistic energy that produced a large and astonishing body of drawings. She produced more than 500 drawings during her short but prolific career.
