大館當代美術館舉行全新展覽「藏木於林」丨TAI KWUN CONTEMPORARY SHOWCASES ‘VERY NATURAL ACTIONS’

香港、內地及台灣年輕的新晉藝術家將參展大館當代美術館全新展覽「藏木於林」。是次展覽由「藝類」呈獻,並由陳子澂及張瀞尹共同策劃,將於 2019 年 9 月 22 日至 12 月 31 日期間舉行,探討藝術創作過程中容易被人忽略的一面。

Works by young and emerging artists from Hong Kong, the Mainland and Taiwan will be the highlight at the Tai Kwun Contemporary exhibition entitled Very Natural Actions. Presented by Arts Collective and curated by André Chan and Jing Chin-yin Chong, this group exhibition will run from 22 September to 31 December 2019 and explore oft-ignored dimensions in the process of artistic creation.

英文展題「Very Natural Actions」取自法國理論家兼文化評論家羅蘭·巴特(Roland Barthes)的論述,他認為深刻的寓意「均建基於平凡普通的行為之上」。當代藝術正好與這種思想不謀而合,是藝術家自然而然對世界產生的回應,創作目的更加貼近生活,與「藝術歸藝術」這種純粹探究美學的狀態有所不同。

The English title of the exhibition Very Natural Actions refers to the words of French theorist and cultural critic Roland Barthes, who believed that great meaning can come from “an unimpressive foundation of ordinary acts.” Contemporary art can embody this idea of spontaneous natural reflection towards the world, and can shift the focus towards life itself, away from “art for art’s sake”, where art is viewed in isolation as objects of pure aesthetic inquiry.

「藏木於林」鼓勵觀看者不只停留在作品的表面,而能從中尋找藏於林中深處的嘉木,與自我經驗共鳴,讓藝術作品成為藝術家和觀眾間分享的橋樑。創作者與觀看者的關注點可能非常不同,但萬千思緒的啓發點,卻從同一件作品出發。透過呈現隱藏於藝術創作過程後的維度空間,「藏木於林」為觀眾帶來欣賞作品的更多可能性。

Very Natural Actions encourages viewers not to linger on the surfaces of works but to seek out that gem of a tree within the forest of forms and meanings — one that resonates with one’s experiences, allowing artworks to serve as bridges between artists and viewers. Beneath the artworks lie worlds and dimensions ordinarily hidden; such reflexive questioning holds out greater possibilities in the viewing of artworks.
