About the Project John Martin: The butcher and the surgeon
During this year’s Art Stage Week, Artist Group Vertical Submarine had opened their exhibition「John Martin: the Butcher and the Surgeon」in Golden Mile complex。By the end of 2015, it’s our honor and great pleasure to announce that this magnificent installation is coming to Nunu Fine Art, Taipei. For the very first time, the Gallery is going to reform its interior space to represent the show. The official opening will be on 2015 December 19th.
Vertical Submarine is a collective group of artists originating from Singapore, including Joshua Yang, Justin Loke and Fiona Koh. The group was formed in 2003 and the name was taken from a word “subvert” that is rotated to be vert-sub and expanded to form Vertical Submarine. Their intricate installations complex with texts often hidden a sense of humor and conveys metaphors. Collectively they have won several awards, like Singapore President's Young Talents Award of 2009, Credit Suisse Artist Residency Award 2009, and Celeste Prize 2011. The initial story of the exhibition is about the serial murderer that took place at 1992 in Singapore, and the criminal was sentenced to death eventually. The artists took the story as an impetus for the project, creating a surreal space with upside-down room, faint gleam of lights that turn on only when visitors come in, and scattered texts. Besides the installation, Vertical Submarine has also created a brand-new art works “the Gray’s Anatomy ”specifically for this upcoming exhibition. The artwork imitates appearance of a book but with a chopper in it, hoping audience to digest the multiple meaning of anatomy
Due to the limitation of exhibition space and conservation, installation is not represented often in the gallery art scene in Taiwan. However, Nunu Fine Art believes “Audience could perceive the value of the installation by their viewing experience. Nothing like traditional approach of collection, viewers collects part of the creators spirit and concept. Feedbacks from the audience will turn back to nutrient the artwork. This valuable experience is what we hope to bring to Taiwan art circle”The exhibition opening starts from Dec,19, 2015, 19:00 till Jan 16,2016. Exhibition opens every 12:00-19:00, Wednesday to Sunday.
