藝術教父的中空立體畫 | MICHAEL CRAIG-MARTIN, THE GODFATHER OF YBA

由Michael Craig-Martin設計的一系列藝術裝置由5月至8月期間於太古廣場及太古坊內的太古公園展出。該藝術裝置系列包括三個色彩鮮明奪目的鋼材雕塑,於上述兩個地點巡迴展出後,將於在上海前灘太古里作長期展覽。

Michael Craig-Martin’s series of artworks will be on display at Pacific Place and in Taikoo Park at Taikoo Place. From May to August, both locations will present three of Craig-Martin’s captivating and vibrant steel sculptures, before the works are permanently installed at Taikoo Li Qiantan in Shanghai.

「英國概念藝術教父」Michael Craig-Martin利用人類以符號及圖片去想像和填補缺失的能力,思索物件和影像的關係。Craig-Martin的作品跨越媒介,貫徹保持優雅克制與概念清晰的創作風格。他的雕塑是半空中的立體畫,取材自日常物件,然而其大小、明亮色調以及平面特質讓物件一一脫離原有的功能和意義,引發觀眾去思考雕塑所謂何物。

A principal figure of British conceptual art, Michael Craig-Martin (b.1941) probes the relationship between objects and images, harnessing the human capacity to imagine absent forms through symbols and pictures. Craig-Martin works across mediums, yet always maintaining elegant restraint and conceptual clarity. Craig-Martin’s sculptures are three-dimensional drawings in space of readily identifiable objects. However, the size, bright palette, and unique flatness of the sculpture undermines the original function and meaning of the object, urging the viewer to question what is really before them.

Craig-Martin的作品現為多家公眾博物館的館藏,包括紐約現代藝術博物館、倫敦泰特美術館、巴黎龐畢度中心及馬德里索菲婭王后國家藝術中心美術館。Craig-Martin於1989至1999年擔任泰特美術館的藝術家理事 (artist trustee),於2006年獲選入英國皇家藝術研究院,亦因其對藝術作出的貢獻於2016年的英女皇壽辰日授勛。

Craig-Martin’s work is found in numerous public collections around the globe, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Gallery, London; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. He was an artist trustee of Tate from 1989 to 1999 and was elected to the Royal Academy in 2006. In 2016 he was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for his services to art.

被譽為「英國年青藝術家教父」的Michael Craig-Martin所創作的三個色彩鮮艷的巨型雕塑作品,取材自日常生活中的平常物件,以粉末塗層鋼材製成。有別於傳統立體雕塑,《高跟鞋(粉紅色)》 (High Heel (pink))、《耳機(藍色)》(Headphones (blue))和《好主意》(Bright Idea) 活像懸浮半空的線條畫。三個雕塑作品一同展出,分別以太古廣場和太古公園作背景,以鮮明顏色營造具戲劇性的氛圍。觀眾可以「看穿」作品,勾起自我與物件之間的聯想。

Standing at up to three metres tall, these vibrantly coloured sculptures by Michael Craig-Martin – the “Godfather of the Young British Artists” – are larger-than-life renditions of ordinary, everyday objects constructed in powder-coated steel. Unlike conventional, three-dimensional sculptures, High Heel (pink), Headphones (blue) and Bright Idea (yellow) are in fact line drawings in space. When seen all together, they create a dramatic presence in vivid colours, set against the backdrop of Pacific Place and Taikoo Park. Such works allow passers-by to look through the transparent spaces found within the sculptures and attach their own personal associations to each object.
