不是天生一對:海洋廢物的含義 | INVOLUNTARY PAIRS MAN-MADE LOST IN NATURE

德國籍藝術家和環保推動者liina klauss專長將人造和自然廢物轉化成令人反思的藝術作品。香港海事博物館最新關於自然歷史與海洋污染的專題展覽 —《「不是天生一對」當人造物件丟失於大自然》細看海洋塑膠污問題,通過展覽我們能了解和正視塑膠危機的深遠影響,探索人造物件丟失在大自然的含義。

German artist liina klauss specializes in turning man-made and natural waste into reflective works of art.  The Hong Kong Maritime Museum’s latest special exhibition on natural history and ocean pollution – “Involuntary Pairs Man-made lost in Nature” takes a closer look at the problem of plastic pollution in the ocean. The exhibition allows us to understand and grasp the fate and implications of our plastic age, and explore the meaning of man-made objects lost in nature.

˹我什麼也沒添加,也沒有帶走。我純粹把現實重新安排。我從混亂中帶出秩序,恐怖中帶出美,荒誕中帶出意義。我並沒有改變現實。我改變的是你對現實的感知。因為只有透過轉變我們看待事物的方式,我們才能真正了解事情的實況。眼前的美麗僅僅只是餌誘,我利用美來讓你的視線凝聚,讓你細看這社會不願意看見的東西。˼

“I don’t add anything, I don’t take away. I simply rearrange reality. I bring order to chaos. Beauty to horror. Meaning to madness.”

展品中的海洋塑膠污染物每件都由 liina klauss 至2013年起在香港的海灘上逐件拾起,每件人造物品跟另一件天然品組成不是天生的一對。兩件外貌幾乎一致,一件從自然悠然而生,另一件則因人類遺棄而殞。

Involuntary Pairs is a collection of objects of marine plastic pollution, individually picked up from Asian beaches by artist liina klauss since 2013. Each man-made object is matched with an item found in nature to form an Involuntary Pair: the two objects look alike, yet one originates from nature, the other from human manufacturing. 

liina klauss 是一位德國籍藝術家和環保推動者,她的作品從視角及概念的層面剖析廢物的含義。她的專長是將環境污染物轉化成色彩銳利和令人思維震驚的藝術作品。liina 的創作模式廣泛,包括大地藝術裝置及精美的馬賽克畫作。在這展覽中,她探索多種對立的概念:個人與集體、遠距離與可觸摸、美麗與震驚、重要與瑣碎。

liina klauss is a German land-artist (1974) who explores visual and conceptual perceptions of waste, specifically marine pollution. She translates environmental pollution into over-flowing installations of screaming colours and horrifying beauty. liina started to make environmental installations in Hong Kong in 2011, after quitting her career as a fashion-designer. One of her main objectives is to involve people into her creation process. “Creative action is a tool for transformation and connection and ultimately change.” She says, “Art is great. Making art is greater.” Today liina creates everything from delicate mosaics to large scale land-art.

展覽原定於去年 12 月展出,在疫情影響下博物館館早前暫時關閉,期間製作了預覽片段讓公眾先暏為快。這個展覽從視覺震撼思維,在這特別的期間,讓我們也深思人與消費品的關係。

The exhibition was initially scheduled in December last year. Following up on an online preview released during museum closure due to the pandemic, the exhibition is now open to the public until 21 March 2021, showcasing an astonishing collection that makes us rethink our relationship with consumer goods.
