建築與二次元世界的暴力美學|VIOLENCE IN ARCHITECTURE AND MANGA

安全口畫廊 Gallery EXIT 呈獻唐納天與王拓聯展《Only the Lonely》,展覽於9月1日至9月29日開放,香港藝術家唐納天和居於北京的王拓,合作創造場域特定混合媒介及錄像裝置。兩人雖從事不同媒介創作,但同時著迷於都市次文化,特別是動漫迷流連沈醉的特殊世界。作品透過這種現象,窺看「現實」的不同面貌。

唐納天以御宅族文化為出發點,創作混合媒介裝置,但重點並非探討宅人本身,而是呈現萌生其思維軌跡的空間。王拓的三頻道錄像裝置《漩渦》通過探索建築與御宅族世界的可相比擬之處,來探討空間和慾望的複雜聯繫。

「任何建築都是一種暴力。」法瑞建築師Bernard Tschumi曾經這樣說過,而這件作品也暗示二次元世界的潛在暴力。

Gallery EXIT is pleased to announce “Only the Lonely”, a joint exhibition by Nadim ABBAS and Wang Tuo. The exhibition opens on 1 September 2018 and remains on view through 29 September 2018. In this exhibition, Hong Kong artist Nadim ABBAS and Beijing-based Wang Tuo join forces to create a site-specific mixed-media and video installation. Although they work in different mediums, the two artists share a fascination for urban subcultures, especially the world of manga and anime enthusiasts. In their work, the artists use this phenomenon as a lens through which they explore different concepts of reality.

ABBAS has repeatedly used otaku culture as a starting point for his mixed-media installations. His work is less concerned with the figure of the otaku himself; it rather deals with the kind of space that gives rise to the mindset of manga and anime fans. Wang ‘s contribution, the three-channel video installation “Spiral”, draws parallels between the world of architecture and that of the otaku in order to explore the complex relationship between space and desire.

“There is no architecture without violence”, as the French-Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi has pointed out. According to Wang, the two-dimensional space of manga and anime may carry a similar potential for violence.
