蕭勤的藝術歷程| The Artistic Journey of Hsiao Chin

拉脫維亞的馬克·羅斯科藝術中心開幕將於2020年4月24日至6月20日舉辦慶賀抽象藝術家蕭勤85歲壽辰的大型回顧展《在我的開始是我的結束:蕭勤的藝術》。

In celebration of the artist’s 85th birthday, the Mark Rothko Art Centre in Latvia will present Hsiao Chin’s exhibition, entitled “In my beginning is my end: the art of Hsiao Chin” from April 24 until June 20, 2020.

「在我的開始是我的結束:蕭勤的藝術」將展示蕭勤六十年的創作,其中包括自1959年以來的30多件作品。這個意義非凡的展覽將共同展出蕭勤的作品和馬克·羅斯科的永久館藏畫作,首次探討兩位藝術家的思想與實踐如何在整個60年代交會,一起創造出精神抽象的藝術語言。

In my beginning is my end: the art of Hsiao Chin will showcase Hsiao Chin’s six-decade oeuvre, featuring over 30 artworks from 1959 onwards. This significant exhibition will present Hsiao Chin alongside the permanent collection of Mark Rothko paintings, exploring for the first time how the two artists’ ideas and practices converged throughout the 1960s, both working to forge a language of spiritual abstraction.

策展人菲力浦·多德(Philip Dodd)表示:「一位60年代歐洲先鋒派核心人物的華人藝術家:蕭勤的創作生涯和他極富創造力的畫作挑戰了大多的藝術類別。 雖然普遍認為他的同儕是意大利藝術家盧齊歐·封塔納(Lucio Fontana)和美國藝術家肯尼思·諾蘭(Kenneth Noland),但是在他尋找能夠體現靈性體驗的繪畫語言這個層面,唯一可比的畫家只有馬克·羅斯科——這使得在馬克·羅斯科的故鄉舉辦蕭勤回顧展十分引人注目。 隨著對靈性和藝術的關注再次浮現,蕭勤的創作堪稱典範,他融合了歐洲和亞洲藝術,來得非常及時。」

The curator of the exhibition, Philip Dodd notes that ‘A Chinese artist at the heart of the 60s European avant-garde: Hsiao Chin’s career and his wildly inventive paintings challenge most categories. His peers may appear to be the Italian Lucio Fontana and the American Kenneth Noland – but in his search for a language of painting that can incarnate spiritual experiences, the only comparable painter of the time is Mark Rothko – which makes holding Hsiao Chin’s retrospective in Mark Rothko’s hometown museum so compelling. As an interest in spirituality and art surfaces again, Hsiao Chin’s practice feels exemplary and his mix of European and Asian art profoundly timely.’
