安地羊(顔寧志)
生於1985年,目前工作和生活於台灣與上海。

國立台南藝術大學藝術創作理論研究所博士班,國立交通大學應用藝術研究所博士班肄業,實踐大學時尚與媒體設計研究所畢業,國立臺南大學美術系學士,戲劇系輔修畢業。

一位台灣當代跨領域藝術家,有著強烈的個人視覺語彙,主要在視覺創作外,創作媒材涵蓋到設計、時裝、影像、裝置和表演等。目前參與過國內外各種不同的展覽、藝術博覽會、以及藝術駐留計畫。

在藝術家的身份之外,他同時也擅長策劃與整合。2006年,成立「自由人畫會」,並發起「自由人藝文資訊」網絡平台。2009年,成立「自由人工作室」,嘗試和不同領域的創作者文化創意、媒體應用、展演策劃、跨領域整合創作發展。 2012年成立了自己的服裝品牌「Organs without body 無體」,將創作延伸至另一個領域,同年也於台灣成立展演替代空間「自由人藝術公寓」、「自由人藝術設計股份有限公司」, 以藝術創造為出發,跨領域整合為方向,試著探索藝術文化的無限可能。

主要發展的「沒有身體的器官」系列,作品創作特色在於透過色彩、造型及線條,使之生命樣態化,解放出作品的自主性。希望由感性支配畫面,讓色彩支配整個平衡效果,使點線面回歸到一個純粹性的有機世界,以濃郁飽滿的色彩表現出類有機物,讓組織/器官自行蔓延在畫面之中,並且隨其自然擴張至其他作品。這些組織的衍生流動,最後必定導向某種意義。但這意義卻不是一個固定的實體,會隨著創作的時間累積,有機、有生命、有形態地持續生長;從細胞到組織,從組織到器官,再從器官到系統,最後變成一個完整的軀體。而它們看作是正在不斷持續成生的生命體,藉由在這樣的一種概念中,創作一種充滿生命力的藝術型態。
