每年12月的檔期裡,路由藝術都籌畫精彩的聯展以作為迎接來年的美好開端。今年我們試圖呼應當代社會若即若離的人際關係,邀請近來畫風一改以往黑色甜點風格的台灣藝術家王亮尹、在北歐當代藝術界佔據重要地位的卡斯帕爾・波恩(Kaspar Bonnén)、香港備受矚目的新生代藝術家鄭婷婷,以及帶著傳奇生命故事的菲律賓新銳藝術家喬瑟夫・特克松(Joseph Tecson)。四位藝術家將各自帶來關於他們生命中的感官經驗與記憶。本次聯展借用卡蜜拉・賈利文(Camilla Jalving)於2006年為丹麥藝術家卡斯帕爾・波恩的作品所寫評論的標題:「空間中的空間的空間」(The Spaces within the Spaces within the Spaces)做為聯展之名,以「空間」為主軸,貫穿四位當代藝術家的繪畫創作。

自90年代中期開始,身兼視覺藝術家與作家的波恩,開始一連串實驗各種藝術形式來述說個人與空間關係的創作。在繪畫的部分,他所畫的並非二維的單一視野,而是各種立體角度的聚合體。他大多數的畫作都參考自己家中的陳列,可能包括一個帶有水槽的廚房、一些洗滌物以及一些零散的物體,這些都帶有藝術家日常生活的痕跡。而波恩所描繪的許多物品―例如PH燈和阿恩雅各布森設計的椅子(Arne Jacobsen chairs)―大多亦可在一般人家家中找到,這些平凡的物件因此可以進一步被視為生活中被廣泛認可的文化符碼,使藝術家個人的居家空間脫離家庭的範疇、轉而進入公共的場域;同時也達到連結觀者與畫作的效果,使個人的私密感與大眾的共同感並存。

對於空間,台灣藝術家王亮尹則另有一套獨特的論述方式。在她的作品中,經常可以見到冷暖色並置的安排以及層層疊疊的交融筆觸。這樣二元的矛盾性顯示了精神與物質之間的衝突與互動關係。王亮尹認為物品在特定時空之下所展現的並非純粹的物質性,更可被理解為思緒上浮動的證據,乘載著人類的臆想。而值得注意的是,儘管王亮尹筆下的元素大多經過她的轉化處理,卻始終保持物體可辨識的原型,因此提供了觀者情感投射與參與的機會。我們眼前所見的一切或許都只是累積的假象,而表象背面是虛實相交的認知邊緣。這樣曖昧的雙重性賦予王亮尹的繪畫一種如夢似幻的特質。

在香港備受注目的新生代藝術家鄭婷婷亦偏好以日常風景為繪畫主題,經由對平凡事物的透徹觀察,以繪畫為主,輔以不同媒材的結合,歸納出個人經驗是如何對自己的生命造成影響。在這一次的聯展中,鄭婷婷將帶來她的最新創作。在她的繪畫作品中,可以找出沙發、桌子、水槽、床墊……等物件,而這些物品構成的並不是純然的物理空間,更是所有物質所交織出的一個生活場域。因此要閱讀她的作品,觀者需要兼具即時性與親密性的考慮。鄭婷婷透過她的畫作不只傳達了身體體驗,更揭露了以視覺形式表現的回憶象限。

活躍於菲律賓的新銳藝術家喬瑟夫・特克松雖然沒有受過正規的藝術訓練,卻透過自學發展出獨樹一幟的繪畫風格。他將繪畫視為挑戰社會界線的一種方式,藉由作品主題的選擇及物件陳置的方式,達到具諷刺性的目的。在這樣的架構下,空間的理解方式可以同時是物理性、情感性,以及經驗性的。觀者被賦予主動進入畫作中行走思考的權利,而非擔任被動且具侷限性的觀賞角色。特克松的畫作雖以日常起居的空間為背景,卻以或下墜或扭曲的色彩線條切斷了符碼的立即可讀性。在交疊的空間裡,它們共同呈現空間的物理性與時間的抽象性。

 

當我們凝神注視這些畫作的時候,所看見的顯然並非純粹作為物理空間的場所,更是以日常物件作為包裝的一道道隱喻。在創作元素與主題的選擇上,藝術家們透過空間、物件,及陌生人事物的交織互動,組成強烈的繪畫詞彙,在畫布上進行多層次的鋪陳。因此,這些作品不僅僅是關於即時性與親密性,更有觀畫者的個人感知經驗參與其中,空間因此也就跳脫物理的具象限制,擴大擁有抽象的指涉意涵。我們在此誠摯的邀請各位路由之友,於12月蒞臨參觀《空間中空間的空間》聯展,為2018年的收穫安靜慶祝、並祈願來年美好豐收。

To welcome the coming year, NUNU FINE ART holds spectacular group exhibition every year in December. Responding to the elusive relationship between humans in current times, this year we invite four artists including Taiwanese artist Wang Liang Yin who known for his dark dessert artistic style, Danish artist Kaspar Bonnén having his place in Northern European contemporary art, Hong Kong young artist Cheng Ting Ting drawing a large attention from public, and legendary artist Joseph Tecson from Philippines. With all the different stories and sensory experiences brought by the four artists, we choose “The Spaces within the Spaces within the Space” as our exhibition name to thread the artworks together, which is the title borrowed by Camilla Jalving’s review about Kaspar Bonnén’s artworks written in 2006.

 

As a visual artist and writer, Kaspar Bonnén has started to experimented various art forms in order to express the relationship between individuals and spaces since the mid of ‘90s. In his paintings, what he tries to create is a multi-perspective polymer instead of a single or two-dimensional atom. Most of his works are referred to his house such as a kitchen sink, clothes and scattered objects. Many objects depicted by Kaspar – such as PH lamps and the chair designed by Arne Jacobsen – are common in people’s houses. Widely acknowledged by the public, these objects serve as cultural codes that make artist’s private life break away from domestic domain, entering into public field. The transference leads to the better connection between artists and audience, where individual privacy and public community coexist.

 

As far as spaces are concerned, Taiwanese artist Wang Liang Yin has his distinctive way of description. In her works, the recurrent blended strokes of cold and warm color tones emphasize the dual contradiction and interactive relationship between spiritual essence and material world. Wang Liang Yin considers objects to be the evidences of flow of emotions and thoughts but not merely representing the pure physicality. It is worth noticing that the objects are remaining the recognizable shapes though they have undergone lots of transformation, which at the process allows the audience to participate and to interpret the artworks by themselves. This attribute somehow implies that what we saw with our physical eyes is simply a surface formed by all the fake components in life. It is this kind of intellect rift across the truth and fake that makes the artistic style ambiguous but at the same open for any interpretations.

 

Cheng Ting Ting a young artist who draws a large attention from public in Hong Kong, prefers to choose daily sceneries as the themes of artworks. Through her keen and deep observation in daily life, she contributes personal experiences to the inspirations of her artworks, which has also influenced her life greatly. In this group exhibition, Ting Ting brings her newest artworks to us, where she makes all the objects in her artworks – such as sofas, tables, sinks and mattresses – not only a simple physical space but a life place where all the things are woven together. As a result, audience has to take the immediacy and intimacy into account, for the paintings of Cheng Ting Ting on one hand deliver the bodily experiences, and on the other hand uncover the mental memories in the framework of visual display.

 

The self-taught artist who has been active in Philippines, Joseph Tecson, developed an art style of his own even though he had never received a formal training. With crucial decisions about themes and objects settings, he often successfully reaches his goal of satire, as he considers painting a means of challenging the social norms. Under this structure, the understandings about spaces can be physical, emotional and empirical at the same time. Audience is given the right to actively take part in the artworks but not limited as a passive address who is often subordinated to the artworks, artworks and the exhibition place. Tecson’s paintings are based on the background of daily routines, but he applies plummeted and distorted linings and colors to cut off the readability in his works.

 

A closer look at these paintings reveals the metaphor wrapped in all the daily objects, in which physical spaces and places are not the only version of reality at the point. In the decision-making process, artists create an artistic language with the interaction between all the different spaces, objects and people. The broad and various perspectives embedded into artworks make audience also a participant in the whole exhibition. We audience are not excluded by artists’ private experiences but allowed to have our own readings. Therefore, NUNU FINE ART sincerely invite all of our friends to appreciate the group exhibition “The Spaces within the Spaces within the Spaces” in December. Best wishes for the thankfulness in 2018 and for the bumper harvests in the coming year.
