倪有魚的「無限」個展 | by Jasmine Chau

上海余德耀美術館項目空間正在推出中國藝術家倪有魚的個展「∞」。本次傑出的展覽為倪有魚時隔四年在中國大陸的首次個展,也是他在國内的第一個裝置個展。

在二零一九年的展覽中,倪有魚特意利用裝置藝術來表達他多方面的思想。須知倪引人注目的地方乃是精湛的繪畫技巧,可是,要數說哪份作品為藝術家增添了榮美聲譽,便不可不提及本展覽內的精緻裝置。展覽以「∞」為題,藝術家試圖擺脫象徵式的思想模式,以及趣味與視覺習慣。他想抽離我們對標誌的依賴,並隔離標誌與認知的明顯關係。接著,藝術家利用一個扭曲的空間來邀請受眾進入一個昔日回顧的時間維度上,更詳細地反思。他構建出一個蘊含了中古趣味的微型「博物館」,並加入具有歷史遺跡的建置、鱗次櫛比的陳列櫃,及不同性格的「人」或「紀念碑」,從而喚起我們對羅馬萬神殿等等的記憶和概念。

特意選用代表無限的符號作為個展名稱,這決定絕對配合年輕中國當代藝術家倪有魚的前衛風格。「∞」的用意默默地散發著,並促使我們再次思考我們對「無限」這個詞彙的理解。試想想看,從原子學,到細胞形成,到人類細胞進化引致我們有能力去建造繁華建築等等,這一切都是源於無限的原子有關。因此,當把思想擴大來看,此展覽中的微型裝置能讓我們觀看無限原子是如何在建立和互相溝通。

總括而言,本展覽的矚目之處乃是融合了繪畫和裝置藝術。兩者的媒介融合通過精美的裝置藝術突顯了藝術家對美學的柔和本質,並有使人難辨廬山全貌的效果。

Yuz Museum is pleased to present “∞”, a solo exhibition by Chinese artist Ni Youyu. This outstanding exhibition shares the artist’s first solo exhibition in Mainland China in four years. In 2019, Ni Youyu exhibits his artistic expression through a focus on installations. While Ni is renowned for his paintings, this particular show adds to his celebratory prominence. Titling as “∞”, a symbol for infinity, Ni attempts to break away from methodology and concepts of obvious signs and representation visually. Instead, the artist invites viewers into the world of recurrence and retrospection through a distorted display. He carefully constructs a micro “museum” with an obsolete atmosphere by adding historic monuments, relics and figures that evokes our memory and familiarity, such as architectures that has strong resemblance to Rome’s Pantheon, others response to strong correlation by philosopher and mathematical concepts dated from Rome.

As one of Yuz Museum’s representative artist, Ni, a young Chinese Contemporary artist decides to use a symbol as his exhibition title, “∞”, to evoke us to evaluate our perception on infinite matters. A wide range of matters can be encompassed as infinite, from molecular atoms, to cells that form human beings, who has the dexterity to build architectural buildings and many more. Therefore, it can be interpreted that the miniatured installations are a close scrutiny into the imagined and actual relationship and communication of infinite matters.

Collectively, while this exhibition becomes a synthesis that showcase the coalesce of painting, a traditional medium, with installation, a contemporary medium, it certainly highlights a focus on aesthetics and ambiguity through the delicacy of installation.
