一場與周杰倫的拍賣會 | AN AUCTION WITH JAY CHOU

二十年來,「地表最強」的周杰倫創作了一首又一首經典歌曲風靡整個亞洲,無疑是當代最有影響力的樂壇天王,實際上,他同時也是一名藝術收藏家和文化愛好者。近日他被邀請作爲亞洲首場「Contemporary Curated:Asia」拍賣客席策展,這次的合作被堪稱為藝術與娛樂界史無前例的重大盛事。

Over the past two decades, ‘the invincible’, Jay Chou has created one after another classic songs that have swept across Asia. He is undoubtedly the most influential contemporary music king. In fact, he is also an art collector and a cultural lover. Recently, he was invited to be the guest curator of Asia’s first “Contemporary Curated: Asia” auction. This collaboration marks as an unprecedented ground-breaking event in the art and entertainment industry.

蘇富比拍賣行及K11集團於今年六月攜手合作,並破天荒邀請了華語音樂界傳奇周杰倫,帶來廣受好評「Contemporary Curated」拍賣系列登陸亞洲。周杰倫不僅親自為拍賣策劃挑選一系列藝術作品,對「JAY CHOU X SOTHEBY’S」拍賣預展場景佈置更是親力親為。他提到:「我為這場合作的預展設計場景佈置,因為我想帶大家回到作品創作時那一刻,讓大家看到的不只是畫作本身,而且感受到作品與它們所屬的時空。」

Sotheby’s and the K11 Group collaborated in June this year and invited the legendary Chinese music icon, Jay Chou, bringing the celebrated “Contemporary Curated” auction series to Asia. Jay Chou not only personally selected a series of exceptional art works for the auction, but also designed the “JAY CHOU X SOTHEBY’S” auction preview in person. He mentioned: “In this collaboration, I have directed a set design for the auction preview to bring people back to the times when these works are created. Audiences will not just be looking at the paintings, but experiencing the paintings as being part of their space and time.”

Auction Preview – Entrance

周董將K11 ATELIER預展設計成七、八零年代的紐約街頭,一踏入拍賣預展就被其有如百老匯劇院的會場入口深深吸引了目光,而中間則擺放著周杰倫最鍾愛的藝術家巴斯基亞的三聯作:《無題》,還有兩張曾經擺放在巴斯基亞工作室的椅子,其中一張隨意躺臥在地上,模擬了1985年他登上《紐約時報》雜誌封面時的情況,一下子便映入眼簾,帶觀衆開啓一場藝術之旅。

Jay Chou designed the K11 ATELIER auction preview with the street scenes of New York in the 1970s and 1980s. As soon as audiences stepped into the auction preview, our eyes can be immediately caught by the venue entrance which is like a Broadway theater. At the same time, Jay Chou’s favorite artist Basquiat’s best known masterwork, Untitled, was exhibited at the center of the auction preview. There are also two chairs that were once placed in Basquiat’s studio, one of which lies casually on the ground, simulating the situation when he appeared on the cover of the “New York Times” magazine in 1985. This eye-catching art piece is taking the audience to begin on an artistic journey.

Jean-Michel Basquiat, Untitled 1985, acrylic and oilstick on wood, in three parts 217.2 x 275.6 x 30.5 cm

展覽的左邊部分是傳統的畫廊風格,工整地擺放了一幅幅藝術作品;而展覽的右邊則模仿了紐約街頭,讓我們恍如置身於巴斯基亞開始創作街頭藝術的年代,轉角就能在雜貨店偶遇安迪·沃荷,或者去叩響畢加索工作室的大門。

The left part of the exhibition is in a traditional gallery style, neatly arranged with a series of artworks; while the right side of the exhibition imitates the streets of New York. It aims to makes us feel like we are in the era when Basquiat began to create street art, where we can meet Andy Warhol in the grocery store, or knock on the door of Picasso’s studio.

這次拍賣預展的場景設計新穎,不再是令人聯想到沉悶的畫廊,而是把作品與環境融合,令觀衆可以以不一樣的方式欣賞藝術,令藝術融入生活,這也是周杰倫這次預展的創作理念:發現原來藝術就在你身邊。

The design of this auction preview is novel and unprecedented. It is no longer reminiscent of a dull gallery, but integrates the art pieces with the environment, so that the audience can appreciate art in a different way and integrate art into life. This is also Jay Chou idea of this design: leaving audiences with different ways of understanding and appreciating the art that surrounds us every day.
