大館當代美術館隆重舉行大型個展「村上隆 對戰 村上隆」，帶來日本藝術家村上隆（1962年生，日本東京）的作品。
Tai Kwun Contemporary is proud to announce MURAKAMI vs MURAKAMI, a major survey exhibition by the Japanese artist Takashi Murakami (b. 1962, Tokyo, Japan).
The exhibition opens from 1 June to 1 September 2019. It will explore the multifaceted universe of the cultural phenomenon of this Japanese super-star artist. Utilising all spaces in the art galleries at Tai Kwun, this comprehensive survey will feature over 60 paintings and sculptures in a stunning, immersive setting that showcases the intriguing paradoxes embodied in the diverse work and life of Takashi Murakami.
One of the most influential artists in the world, Takashi Murakami has the ability to amaze as well as to confound, with a particular but subtle critique of contemporary culture. He also has an uncanny knack for reaching out far beyond the realm of contemporary art to a broader mainstream audience, from fashion to cosplay to graffiti.
「村上隆 對戰 村上隆」由挪威奧斯陸 Astrup Fearnley Museet(阿斯楚普.費恩利現代藝術博物館)總監 Gunnar B. Kvaran 與大館藝術主管 Tobias Berger 共同策展,展示村上隆各走極端的作品,包括他的大型後末世主題作品、歡樂滿載的花朵作品,以及發人深思、充滿佛教頓悟禪意的「圓相」畫作系列。同時,他的經典大膽戲服作品亦將首次展出,訪客更可同時觀賞村上隆的重要影片作品、私人藝術珍藏,以至驚人的牆壁及地板藝術,感受強烈複雜的視覺衝擊。
Curated by Gunnar B. Kvaran, director of Astrup Fearnley Museet (Oslo, Norway) and Tobias Berger, Head of Art at Tai Kwun, MURAKAMI vs MURAKAMI features divergent extremes of the artist’s oeuvre — from his large-scale post-apocalyptic works to his optimistic flower pieces, and then to his contemplative Enso paintings, offering Buddhist visions of enlightenment. Also on view for the first time is a showcase of some of the artist’s iconic and outlandish costume designs, which visitors will experience alongside other important video works, samples of his private art collection, as well as the artist’s spectacular wall and floor art — which serves up a forceful yet complex visual impact.
