大館當代美術館新展「言語不通」| TAI KWUN CONTEMPORARY SHOWCASES "THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER"

大館當代美術館今天宣布將於2020年2月15日至5月17日舉辦全新展覽:「言語不通」,由國立國際美術館(大阪)及新加坡美術館共同呈獻,並由植松由佳及葉德晶聯合策展。

Tai Kwun Contemporary today announces a new exhibition They Do Not Understand Each Other, held from 15 February to 17 May 2020, presented by The National Museum of Art, Osaka and Singapore Art Museum, and curated by Yuka Uematsu and June Yap.

是次群展的命名,取自加藤翼(Tsubasa Kato)的一件藝術作品;這位僅操日語的藝術家嘗試與一位韓國人合作,儘管兩人言語不通,卻似乎找到了某種方法溝通。即使過程中的誤會令人忍俊不禁,也終於完成創作,在位於茫茫大海的小島上,聯手安裝了一個標誌。這片大海正好分隔了他們兩個國家(也可以說大海將這兩個國家連在一起)。

This group exhibition draws from the title of an artwork by Tsubasa Kato, in which the artist, who speaks in Japanese, attempts to cooperate with a collaborator from Korea. Despite being unable to understand each other’s languages, it would appear they find some measure of connection, even if in humorous miscommunication, finally completing their task of installing a sign on the small island set in the vastness of a sea that separates (or, one might say, connects) these two nations.

展覽的主題圍繞文化交流以及藉此達致彼此了解,參展藝術品既有兩家博物館的藏品,亦有全新委約作品。如此藝術展示方式涉及交流、溝通、誤會、人際關係、寬容、表象,還揭示了人們的慾望及對熟悉、對陌生及對新事物的期待。一言以蔽之,展覽探討的是在個人、民族及事物之間種種不均衡的處境和條件。

Artworks on show ranges from the two museums’ collections to new commissions, in a consideration of the premise of cultural exchange and the understanding it promotes. The exhibition thus presents art about exchange, communication, miscommunication, connections, tolerance, representation, as well as revelations on desires and expectations of the familiar, unfamiliar and new. In essence, of situations and conditions of unevenness, between individuals, peoples, and things.
