預計將在路由藝術展出的藝術家,羅娜.龐迪克(Rona Pondick),她的作品〈花崗岩床|Granite Bed〉受康乃狄克州耶魯大學紐黑文校區邀請,將在校園內永久展出。這件雕塑作品距離拜內克古籍善本圖書館(The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library)和野口雕塑花園(Noguchi Sculpture Garden)不到300公尺處,且鄰近藝術家亞歷山大・考爾德的作品〈絞架和棒棒糖|Gallows and Lollipop〉。
    
在這件花崗岩作品上,羅娜以手寫文字「我想要的」佈滿整個表面,表達人類對慾望的追求:『「渴望」是一種基本願望,一種推動我們生活的願望。我們的願望來自深刻和淺薄的情感和慾望,它們對人類行為的各個方面產生深遠的影響。我想要什麼?另一個人? 吃?錢?權力?........想要的是基礎;人類情感的基石。但是,一旦「我想要」這些詞語脫離了背景,我們如何為它們賦予意義呢?你認為你知道想要什麼,但是我們呢?慾望的對像是什麼?慾望本身是什麼?』2018年9月20日耶魯大學將為這件永久典藏的作品進行開幕儀式,此作品將做為該校的永久典藏。
    
Rona Pondick who is expected to have an exhibition in Nunu Fine. Her work was invited by the Yale University New Haven Campus in Connecticut and will be permanently on display in the campus. This piece is located just two blocks away from the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library which features a Noguchi Sculpture Garden, and not far from Alexander Calder's Gallows and Lollipops.
    
In this work, Rona fills the entire surface with the handwritten text "I want" to express human pursuit of desire: "Wanting" is a fundamental wish, a desire that propels us in life. Our wanting is drawn from both deep and shallow emotions, and desires, that exerts a profound influence on all facets of human behavior. I want what? Another person? To eat? Money? Power?........ To want is the foundation; the building block of human emotions. But once the words "I want" are taken out of context, how do we attach meaning to them? You think you know what wanting is. But do we? What are the objects of desire? What is desire itself?” The dedication for the building and sculpture will take place on September 20th, 2018. When it's finished, Nunu Fine Art’s friends are welcome to visit.
