對你來說，肖像畫有什麼微妙之處呢？著名畫廊貝浩登（香港）會在尖沙咀海旁的K11 ATELIER Victoria Dockside，舉辦首個以肖像為題的群展《萬花筒：當代肖像》，透過精選藝術家的視角探索當代肖像的意念。
What is so special about portraiture? Perrotin Hong Kong is pleased to inaugurate its new location at K11 ATELIER Victoria Dockside with a group exhibition exploring meanings of portraiture through the lens of selected artists.
是次群展呈獻十位藝術家的肖像作品，他們分別為赫楠·巴斯（Hernan Bas）、陳飛、尚-菲利普·德洛姆（Jean-Philippe Delhomme）、加藤泉、MADSAKI、艾迪·馬丁内斯（Eddie Martinez）、貝瑞·麥吉（Barry McGee）、Mr.、村上隆及高野綾。展覽匯聚不同的文化和藝術實踐，藉此探索再現（representation）和自我表現（self-representation）的方式，以及從中得取的方法。作品遊走於具象與抽象，和內觀與感知之間，檢視身份和人文理想如何在成為審視和改變的對象底下得以構建。
Featuring Hernan Bas, Chen Fei, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Izumi Kato, MADSAKI, Eddie Martinez, Barry McGee, Mr., Takashi Murakami, and Aya Takano, Kaleidoscopes: Contemporary Portraiture considers different manners of representation and self-representation, and the methods from which they are derived. Alternating between dualities of figuration/abstraction and introspection/perception, the exhibited works examine the formation of identity and humanistic ideals as they become subject to scrutiny and change.
Portraiture has flourished as an art form over the course of its history. Before the invention of the camera, a portrait, which would be painted, drawn, or sculpted, was the primary way to record the appearance of a person. As portraiture evolved from its documentary function to providing more abstract and revelatory representations, artists experimented with the form to portray themselves and their contemporaries in various vivid ways. With its human focus, portraiture captures the essence of individuals as well as their lived and perceived experiences, reflecting as much of its subject as the one who conjures the image into being.
Using portraiture as a starting point, Kaleidoscopes: Contemporary Portraiture presents interpretations of the ways with which the human experience may be understood and transformed. Each portrait is an expression of the artist’s vision; altogether, they form a kaleidoscopic view of likeness at once familiar and destabilizing, a reflection conjuring multiple narratives, states of being, and metamorphosing selves.
