貝瑞.麥吉《彼岸》丨BARRY MCGEE: THE OTHER SIDE

貝浩登(香港)很榮幸舉辦三藩市藝術家貝瑞·麥吉於貝浩登以及大中華區的首次個展《彼岸》。

Galerie Perrotin is pleased to present The Other Side, Barry McGee’s first exhibition with the gallery.

是次展覽陳列麥吉多件新作、現成作品及典藏,呈現麥吉不斷演化的幽默美學,以及他對不同環境和社群的獨特描繪。

Featuring a selection of new works, ephemera, and archival materials from the San Francisco-based artist, The Other Side showcases McGee’s ever-evolving, often humorous, imagery through his characteristic depictions of varied environments and social vernaculars. The show will also mark the artist’s first solo exhibition in the region, where part of his heritage lies. McGee, who is American-born, is of partial Chinese descent.

麥吉以營造令人身臨其境的裝置聞名,透過靈活和即興的方式創作,令每個裝置為該展覽場地所獨有。他選取創作媒介不拘一格,展出的包括彩繪滑浪板、手作陶瓷、老舊電視機以及留港期間搜集的現成物,顯示其藝術創作的變幻莫測。《彼岸》亦反映藝術家與身處的都市環境之間的對話,以及延續他對公共和私人空間分野的探索。是次展覽可視為麥吉世界觀的縮影,讓觀者從中管窺其創作軌跡 。

Known for creating immersive environments, McGee adopts a fluid and improvisational approach to his installations; each is unique to the architecture of its exhibition space. By incorporating an eclectic selection of media—painted surfboards, hand-thrown ceramics, obsolete television sets—and found objects sourced during his stay in Hong Kong, McGee demonstrates his organic and often unpredictable process of art making. The spontaneity of The Other Side is evocative of the artist’s ongoing dialogue with the neighborhoods in which he resides and his sustained interest in the distinctions between public and private spaces. The result is an inclusive experience that gives insight into McGee’s worldview and his artistic trajectory.
