Massimo De Carlo 欣然呈現《Clown’s Way》展覽，這是當代瑞士藝術家約翰·阿姆萊德（John Armleder）在香港畫廊的首次個展，展期至 3 月 5 日。
Massimo De Carlo is pleased to present Clown’s Way, the first solo show ever by contemporary Swiss artist John Armleder (Geneva, 1948) in Hong Kong.
阿姆萊德創作中的幽默、諷刺和創造力均表現出激浪派的特色。這位著名的瑞士藝術家關注和質疑其抽象參考，引伸他對藝術、物件和動作之間關係的探索和分析。他將客體的概念通過創作轉化為藝術；而其筆觸成為決定性的媒介，使阿姆萊德可以挑戰主體的美學常規性，並圍繞自我意識、他者性、作者身份和自我意象作出研究。從藝術家本人所謂的「超級市場形式（supermarket of forms）」中汲取靈感，他的作品涵蓋了繪畫、表演和裝置，而這些領域超出了藝術與設計以及圖形和抽象之間的範疇。
In his practice John Armleder plays with the humour, irony and inventiveness that characterized the Fluxus movement. The renowned Swiss artist dwells in and questions the abstract references that have nurtured his exploration and analysis of the relationship between art, the object and the gesture. The notion of object-hood is morphed into art through the painterly gesture. The brushstroke becomes the decisive medium that allows Armleder to challenge the ordinariness of the subject’s aesthetic and for the investigation of the abstract that evolves around self-conscience and otherness, authorship and ego. Drawing from what the artist himself calls a “supermarket of forms,” his oeuvre encompasses painting, performances and installations that exceed the categories between art and design, figuration and abstraction.
《Clown’s Way》囊括了約翰．阿姆萊德的創作方式，場內「傾倒繪畫」與「水窪繪畫」互相呼應，在展覽空間中形成了視覺漩渦，從而消除藝術和日常的分歧。此外，《Clown’s Way》融合了阿姆萊德的雕塑作品，全方位地體現其創作精神，為觀眾創造了進入藝術家世界的通道。
Clown’s Way encapsulates John Armleder’s practice, in which the sheer scale of the Pour and Puddle Paintings co-exist and interact to form a visual maelstrom in the exhibition space, where artistic and quotidian divides are relinquished. In addition, the incorporation of sculptural works exemplifies the omni-medial and multifaceted work of the artist, creating entryways for the viewers to immerse themselves in Armleder’s universe.
