藝術家阿里・貝瓦吉(Ari Bayuaji)近日正緊鑼密鼓的籌備明年三月於加拿大蒙特婁的展出。有別於過去的複合多元媒材呈現,本次展覽貝瓦吉大量使用了木材做為主要創作媒介,搭配上一些舊有的現成物件,如大理石底座、陶瓷、乃至木造建築構件等,輔以表面的彩繪與手工鑿刻完成。預計將展出六件立體雕塑、四件牆上雕塑、兩件大型裝置藝術、兩幅繪畫作品、四件攝影作品,以及一部錄像裝置藝術。

值得一提的是,受策展人Iris Amizlev所邀,貝瓦吉將和華裔加拿大視覺藝術家靳華(Hua Jin)共同創作本次特展《花與獸│Flowers and Monsters》。靳華擅長以攝影作品捕捉每一個頃刻,諸如時間、生命、或任意的微物。儘管目前兩位藝術家均長期定居於蒙特婁,創作內涵卻未盡皆西化,因此我們依然可以期待在博物館偌大的展場空間中,看見他們如何運用不同的創作媒材,帶來一場東方視野的哲學對話。

 

Ari Bayuaji is in the midst of the preparation for the exhibition in Montreal, Canada, presenting in March next year. Different from the past projects using mixed media to present, in this exhibition, Bayuaji uses wood as a main media, and matches some old ready-made objects, such as marble base, ceramics and even wood components that are painted and hand-cut on their surface. It is expected to exhibit six sculptures, four wall sculptures, two large installation artworks, two paintings, four photography works, and a video installation.

It is worth mentioning that, curator Iris Amizlev also invites Chinese Canadian visual artist Hua Jin to exhibit with Bayuaji in "Flowers and Monsters" exhibition. Jin’s works focuses on a worldview that embraces the concept of transience: of time, of life, and of everyday objects. Although both artists have settled in Montreal for a long time, the content of their creations have not been fully westernized, so we can still expect to see the oriental philosophy between different medias in the exhibition.
