關於展覽

曾有書評認為,美國文學家楚門.柯波帝(Truman Capote)半傳記式小說《Other Voices, Other Rooms》裡南方男孩喬爾前往莊園找尋父親的旅程,可以說是男孩走進自己潛意識的過程。那麼索迪絲.阿德丹斯多堤(Thordis Adalsteinsdottir)選擇「Other Voices, Other Rooms」為展覽命題,無所畏地展露人們避而談之的慾望、想像、感知與激情,或許正是巧妙地將繪畫當作真實之境,映出人類情感的赤裸面容。

身為冰島首都雷克雅維克美術館舉辦個人回顧展最年輕的藝術家,索迪絲是現今首要聚焦的冰島當代藝術家。對比同樣來自北歐的創作者,儘管非以山脈群峰、冰川銀翼當作繪畫主體,索迪絲卻也延續了冷冽而節制的用色與構圖,並在此基礎之上建立更為寫實的人類自畫像。其筆下人物與動物圖像自身的敘事能力極為強烈,銳利且刺探性十足的眼神、細瘦如柴的四肢、詭譎怪誕的氛圍,再再為觀者營造出猶如文學般的想像空間,這或許與索迪絲擅長視閱讀書報為刺激創作靈感有關,畫布成為生態紀錄鏡頭的同時,留下了無數陌生又熟悉的殘酷畫面。

展覽將於 7 23 日(六/Sat.)下午三時路由藝術開幕,歡迎各位朋友蒞臨參觀指教。

About the exhibition

While American writer Truman Capote tried to find the trace of an imaginary character’s existence via his semi-autobiographical novel “Other Voices, Other Rooms”, Thordis Adalsteinsdottir attempts to paint the true features of human beings’ emotions.

In some book reviews, the writer regards Joel’s (the boy character in “Other Voice, Other Rooms”) journey with a motive to find his father as a process of walking into his own subconsciousness. As an exhibition title, “Other Voices, Other Rooms” is a way for Thordis to talk about DESIRE, IMAGINATION, PERCEPTION, and PASSION that people are always afraid to mention. To be more precise, Thordis magically places her paintings into a virtual passage connecting inner and outer worlds, which becomes a mirror to reflect the truth.

As the youngest artist ever who held solo retrospective exhibition in Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland, there is no doubt that Thordis now become the focus in contemporary art. Compared with other Nordic artists, Thordis continues with a natural and scenery-like style in the use of colors and compositions, rather than in painting mountain peaks and glittering river directly. Those colors presented on canvas are like water flowing between sand and stones, cedar leaves floating in high latitude mountain, or light glowing in the quiet night sky. Critics usually attribute this way of painting to the magnificent landscapes in Northern Europe. However, LOVE and LONELINESS, which are often mentioned in Capote’s novel, are the main themes Thordis talks about on the basis of Nordic painting style. It is the strong ability to narrate that makes her paintings become a more realistic human self-portrait.

Opening reception is at 15:00 on July 23th in NUNU FINE ART.
