平行時空下的電影宴會|DUDDELL’S FEAST IN PARALLEL MOVIE NARRATIVES

Duddell’s 都爹利會館 榮幸呈獻由北京策展人富源策劃的藝術聯展《眾神失語的日子》,展覽邀請四位年輕藝術家參與,包括香港藝術家陳泳因、陳沁昕、方琛宇,以及廣州藝術家葉慧。四位藝術家將以破格新穎的方式,將充滿著荒誕電影感的場景帶到現實之中,透過抽象的作品和令人意想不到的情景,為觀眾帶來非一般的藝術體驗。

藝術家陳泳因(Doreen Chan)特別在入口處創作了一組用衛生紙架或環保袋支撐的廉價燈具裝置迎接客人,為會館迎來具有強烈視覺反差效果的場景。藝術家陳沁昕(Tap Chan)受到寇比力克(Stanley Kubrick)的電影啟發,並加入自身的經驗及想像進行創作,重新佈置會客廳內部分空間,營造出一種「突如其來」的不祥感覺。

藝術家方琛宇(Silas Fong)就利用了表演性的媒介探索當代飲食行業的本質,他將會透過一個事先設計好的新穎菜單,邀請食客與酒吧服務員進行互動,包括吸引食客表演指定對白來換取免費飲品。此外,他也在藏書閣的角落安置了一組隱射「麥難民」的裝置作品。葉慧(Ye Hui)將會透過聲音裝置呈現一部三人廣播劇,其中對談者的原型取材於三個不同時空兇殺案的「女主角」,對話內容將遍佈會客廳的各個角落。

Hong Kong Michelin-starred restaurant and cultural space Duddell’s is pleased to present group exhibition “The Day the Gods Stops Laughing” curated by Beijing-based curator Yuan Fuca. Works on display are created by four emerging artists, including Hong Kong artists Doreen Chan, Tap Chan, Silas Fong, and Ye Hui from Guangzhou. Experimental and bold, they expand cinematic situations into reality and touch upon the individual experience in abstract forms and unexpected conditions, to present an exceptional art experience for audiences in a restaurant and bar setting.

Overwhelmed by the Salon’s rich interior, Doreen Chan sculpts a set of light fixtures made by toilet paper and reusable bags in the staircase entrance to transform the vibe. Inside the Salon, site-specific artworks created by Tap Chan represent scenes in films by Stanley Kubrick intertwining with her imagination and past experience, evoking a sense of sinister cheerfulness.

Silas Fong, on the other side, mulls over food industry through performative agencies within the restaurant environment. He encourages customers to perform designed dialogues in public for free drinks, as well as places an installation of a nameless sleeper in the corner. Lastly, Ye Hui implants sound devices to broadcast a three-person audio drama about murder cases; their conversations are played all over the Salon.
