「璀璨都市」群展: 佈景下的荒誕| ABSURDITIES BEHIND THE BRILLIANT CITIES

卓納畫廊香港空間 David Zwirner 隆重呈獻由總監許宇策展的群展「璀璨都市」,匯集各地藝術家: 弗朗西斯·埃利斯(Francis Alÿs)、陳維、斯坦·道格拉斯(Stan Douglas)、李青、林明弘、戈登·馬塔-克拉克(Gordon Matta Clark)和黃漢明的作品,揭示世界各地「璀璨都市」的繁華背後。

展覽的題目借鑑於1987年的香港經典流行歌曲《今夜星光燦爛》,在這首歌曲中,組合達明一派演繹了這座城市令人炫目的光輝以及這座年輕城市所蘊含的失落和質疑感。是次展覽以高樓大廈垂直發展見稱的香港,以及反烏托邦大都會為靈感,探討跨世代和跨地域的藝術家與城市空間的交流。

David Zwirner proudly presents “Brilliant City”, which is organized and curated by Leo Xu. It is a group exhibition featuring work by Francis Alÿs, Chen Wei, Stan Douglas, Li Qing, Michael Lin, Gordon Matta-Clark, and Ming Wong, which reveal the reality behind different metropolises around the world.

The exhibition borrows its title from the lyrics of a 1987 Cantopop classic “Starry is the Night”, in which the Hong Kong-based electro duo Tat Ming Pair illustrate the perplexing brilliance of the city’s landscape at night, and the feeling of loss and doubt that it harbors amongst its youth. Drawing inspiration from Hong Kong, an archetypal dystopian metropolis characterized by its unparalleled density and lofty high-rises, this exhibition explores how artists across generations and locations have engaged with the complexity of urban space.
