內容簡介

感受女性人體的奧妙與詭譎的美感,重新探討道德、教育與藝術的關聯

位於佛羅倫斯的人體解剖模型博物館(La Specola)有一座以威尼絲玻璃及花梨木保護的精美人體標本,由義大利雕塑家克萊門特•米開朗基羅•蘇西尼打造的《解剖學維納斯》女性標本,完美的外貌及栩栩如生的解剖細節,以一種詭譎華麗的美感挑戰18世紀的道德界線。《解剖學維納斯》當初的構想就是為了人體解剖學而生,不需擔心人體容易腐敗及世人的道德信仰,這個以真人尺寸打造的女性解剖標本除了玻璃眼珠及真人毛髮,全部皆以蠟製成。四肢及身體內部皆可輕易拆解,在子宮處還有一個捲曲的胎兒。很快的,類似的女性蠟像標本在歐洲各處展覽,不只提供醫學院學生做教學使用,這樣特殊及充滿神秘感的標本受到廣大世人喜愛。這本驚奇的攝影作品收錄18至19世紀的女性蠟像標本,充滿誘惑及詭譎美感的女性身體令人驚艷,透過這些令人驚嘆的作品,深度探討生與死;科學與藝術;肉體與靈魂;人偶與真人的模糊交界,引領讀者進入一趟美妙的人體探索之旅。



Beneath the original Venetian glass and rosewood case at La Specola in Florence lies Clemente Susini’s Anatomical Venus (c. 1790), a perfect object whose luxuriously bizarre existence challenges belief. It – or, better, she – was conceived of as a means to teach human anatomy without need for constant dissection, which was messy, ethically fraught and subject to quick decay. This life-sized wax woman is adorned with glass eyes and human hair and can be dismembered into dozens of parts revealing, at the final remove, a beatific foetus curled in her womb. Sister models soon appeared throughout Europe, where they not only instructed the specialist students, but also delighted the general public. Deftly crafted dissectable female wax models and slashed beauties of the world’s anatomy museums and fairgrounds of the 18th and 19th centuries take centre stage in this disquieting volume. Since their creation in late 18th-century Florence, these wax women have seduced, intrigued and amazed. Today, they also confound, troubling the edges of our neat categorical divides: life and death, science and art, body and soul, effigy and pedagogy, spectacle and education, kitsch and art. Incisive commentary and captivating imagery reveal the evolution of these enigmatic sculptures from wax effigy to fetish figure and the embodiment of the uncanny.
