上海外灘美術館即將於6月26日至8月26日舉辦中國當代藝術家林天苗的首場上海個展《体・统》,並邀請紐約古根漢美術館亞洲藝術部三星資深策展人亞歷山德拉・夢璐(Alexandra Munroe)擔任顧問策展人。

九十年代初,作為中國首批嘗試裝置和錄像製作的女性藝術家之一,林天苗不斷嘗試各種創作媒介,通過具有女性生活痕跡和符號意義的材料如針、棉、線、絲、布,將這些材料加工、纏繞、覆蓋於日常物件上,透露著對日常生活和傳統手工藝的關注和反思,以一種獨到的想像力及視野形成了鮮明、敏感且細膩的個人風格。

《体.統》以人體系統為構想出發,檢視並重新塑造「自我」在社會與技術現實變化中的運作方式。展覽分為四部分概念的探究:“個體意識”、“群體意識”、“公共意識”、“終極意識”,並與樓層相呼應,依次從美術館二樓展廳縱向延伸到六樓,為觀者帶來一場心理和感官上的“意識”之旅。作品涵蓋她二十餘年創作脈絡中極具代表性的裝置作品,以及藝術家自2017年起製作且從未公眾展出的數件玻璃材質的大型交互裝置,屆時,具有文獻意義的手稿也將一併展出。

From June 26 to August 26, 2018, Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) will proudly host “Systems”, Chinese contemporary artist Lin Tianmioa’s first solo exhibition in Shanghai city. The show is curated by Alexandra Munroe, the Samsung Senior Curator, Asian Art and Senior Advisor, Global Arts, at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.

In the early 1990s, as one of the first female Chinese artists tackling installation and video production, Lin Tianmiao continually tried out various creative media. Through materials redolent of the traces and symbolism of feminine life, such as needles, cotton, threads, silk and fabric—materials which she worked over—the artist wrapped everyday objects and enveloped them, thereby also displaying her care for and reflections about everyday life and traditional handicrafts. With such exceptional imagination and perspective, she formed a distinctive, sensitive, and exquisite personal style. 

Taken inspiration from the human body, “Systems” examines, exposes and reimagines the workings of the self in relation to shifting social and technological realities.The exhibition consists of four key concepts: “individual consciousness”, “collective consciousness”, “public consciousness”, and “ultimate consciousness”. With each concept corresponding to a floor in the museum, going from the second floor of the museum all the way to the sixth floor will embark visitors on a psychological and sensorial journey of “consciousness”. Works shown cover representative installation works from her twenty years’ of creative practice, together with several large-scale, interactive installations which the artist has created since 2017 but has never shown to the public. Manuscripts of archival significance will also be exhibited at the same time.
