《阿叔的自由意志》armechan阿米青 作品展 | THE UNCLE’S FREE WILL, ARMECHAN’S SOLO EXHIBITION

「阿叔的自由意志特別強大,他們不理世人目光:穿著自我,全身迷彩又有,全身玉佩又有;行為隨心,大街大巷理髮瞓覺隊啤,懶理他人。」

“The uncle’s free will is extremely strong, they do not care about the public eye, and will always follow their hearts.”

本地藝術家armechan(阿米青)一直以蝕刻版畫及繪畫為主要創作媒介,至兩年前開始,用手機在深水埗附近拍攝不同的人物常態,其中衣著造型、行為動靜皆非常自我的「阿叔」在此系列作品中特別惹人注目。

Local artist armechan has always made use of lithography and painting as his medium of creation. Two years ago, he started to use his phone to capture different individuals in the vicinity of Sham Shui Po. Among them, ‘The Uncle’, who has eye-catching outfits and behaviours has become the theme of this exhibition

這些阿叔在armechan的鏡頭之下,是一個又一個城市的流動風景,他以連環快拍的方式將之拍下,沖曬成A3大小的作品,然後用油彩(Gouache)為他們建構另一道空間和想像——那些不斷重複出現的人頭、虛構的背景顏色,既反映阿叔與城市的格格不入,又重申他們虛幻又真實地存在於城市的生活當中。

Under armechan’s lens, ‘The Uncle’ has become a mobile landscape of the city, his works of art has been printed in A3 size. Afterwards, they were painted in Gouache, creating an alternate space for imagination – ‘The Uncles’ who are continuously appearing in his works of art might be misfits of the city, but they are important components of the city.

事實上,armechan也是這些阿叔的一分子,說的既是年紀、是生活方式,也是那種倔強的自由意志。他說自己是名義上的創作者,實際上更多是日復日的藝術工匠,有時為追求只有自己覺得完美的一根孤線,會畫上好幾天,連自己都覺得沉悶。

In fact, armechan considers himself as part of ‘The Uncle’ community. He is convinced that his age and daily habits are similar to them, let alone their unbreakable free will. He has unbelievable perseverance – at first glance, he might be an art creator, but upon closer inspection, he actually considers himself as a handicraftsman who always sets high standards for himself.
