21世紀也過了14年半了。當我們在探討和思索這整個人類工業文明最劇烈變動的一百多年, 思索大環境體制下世界的前進與後退,種種的大課題透過微型網絡的傳遞,升起的公民意識,讓公共議題成為一個抬面上,抬面下,茶餘飯後不可不論的課題。然後微型網絡所型成的曝光式的溝通方式,塑造的一種看似靠近卻又遙遠的人際關係,成為生活在這個年代的我們,另一種較隱藏性的社會課題。出生在八十中、後期的藝術家,作家,音樂家也許從他們的作品上,較少搜尋到上個世紀那個用創作向世界宣告一個理念,站出一個立場的悲奮情懷,藝術觀者質疑或許是這個世代的溫室培育所型成的一個”萎議題”, 然而在網路社群,行動通訊工具所主導的生活方式,或許這一群創作者從自身出發,輕描淡寫的說出關於我是誰,我和世界的關係,來述說的這個時代人類的一種更深層議題。

路由藝術 / NUNU FINE ART 於八月底推出一檔名為 “孤獨的解答: 愛是孤獨的人為了化解孤獨而從事的行為”。本展想借取德國哲學家 佛洛姆(Erich Formm) 於1956年所發表的〈愛的藝術〉(The Art of Loving)一書中所提出的愛為自然發生的,但是需要透過更多的練習,讓生物性的作用成為一種能力,用以解決人性中引發出來的孤立感受。本檔中的兩位出生於接近的同一個年份(1984年,謝是1983年的最後一天) 的藝術家,謝怡如以及 Endira Julianda 利用完全不同的色調選擇,一位承襲夏卡爾跳動的色彩,一位與印尼同期藝術家 Pramuhendra相互切磋,著磨在黑白影像中的擬寫實意識。兩位看似相反的筆法,卻在畫布中透露出近似的思考邏輯,以及她們選擇當一位不是大聲疾呼的藝術家,而是緩慢的反芻著這個社會更隱性,不斷出現的疏離事件。透過畫面中的動物與空間的關係,透過自己與想像的夢境之間,不論冷調性或是暖色系,藝術家相信自身的作品有一種對當代社會現像的回應作用,並且經由在繪畫創作中充滿情緒感受的過程,體驗找到自己孤獨的解答

【孤獨的解答 : 愛是孤獨的人為了化解孤獨而從事的行為】將於8月23日週六下午2點開幕,現場邀請兩位藝術家與我們討論其創作過程,歡迎您親臨現場指教。

So the new century is already 14 years old. As we ponder and explore the most turbulent century of the entire human industrial civilisation, and whether our world is going forwards or back, all sorts of weighty issues are being transmitted via social media, gaining public awareness and becoming indispensable to any social interaction, both formally and informally. In turn, the “communication by exposure” forged by social media fosters human relationships that seems close, yet are distant, creating yet another underlying problem for the age we live in. 

We are less likely to find a demonstrative voice like that of artists from the last century, who tried to convey ideology through art, in the works of artists, writers and musicians born in the mid and late 80s. Some viewers question the protective environment this generation grew up in, and whether it nurtured a sentimentality towards trivial issues. Yet, in a time where the internet, social media and mobile communication dictate our daily behaviour, perhaps such nonchalant, autobiographical narratives of who I am and what my relationship to the world is, are the perfect way to tackle the issues of our time. 

Nunu Fine Art will be presenting an exhibition under the title “The Answer to Solitude: Love is what lonely people do to resolve isolation” at the end of August. The show borrows from the German philosopher Erich Fromm and his 1956 publication “The Art of Love”. In this book, Fromm argues that love happens naturally, yet requires practice to gain biological capacity, which helps to resolve the sense of isolation triggered by human nature. 

The two artists in this exhibition, Hsieh and Endira Julianda, were almost born in the same year (1984, Hsieh being born on the last day of 1983). While their palettes are entirely different—one a follower of Chagall's vibrant colours, the other working closely with the Indonesian artist Pramuhendra, exploring the mind in a black and white virtual reality—they display a similar logic on their canvases, even though their methods seem opposite. They chose not to be artists who shout, but artists who slowly ruminate the less visible, yet constantly reappearing, incidents of alienation. Through the relationships between the animals depicted and the spaces they find themselves in, through the self and the imagined dream, be it in cold or warm tones, the artists believe their works reflect phenomena of contemporary society, and found their own answers to solitude through the emotive process of artistic creation. 

Please join us for the opening of “The Answer to Solitude: Love is what lonely people do to resolve isolation” at 2pm, Saturday 23 August. Both artists will be present to share their thoughts and discuss their creative processes.
