第一人稱:創作

First Person: Creativity

「藝術家的自我性」可以說是所有現存藝術作品中最基本也最重要的根基。立體派的畢卡索、點描派的秀拉,過去藝術史中習慣指涉的「個人風格」,其實就象徵著藝術家第一人稱的自我特質。反映出他們對事物的好惡、個性上的平靜壓抑或激烈熱情、他們的童年故事、感情狀態,揭露出創作者最私密的一面。

在展區【第一人稱:創作】中,《 從圖書館出發 》反映出吳耿禎強烈的觀念藝術家特質,他對環境有著高度敏感性,透過藝術家之眼,許多習常的空間要素瞬間變得脈絡化、可以供意義上的檢視; 《 生命的轉變 》則開門見山的展演藝術家最擅長且親切的題材—自然界中的循環流動, Tim表示:葉片的生命週期其實就是在談他的人生階段,生命最盛開之時常常就是枯萎的開始。如此坦率地、他們的作品就是他們的自我。

The artist’s ego can be deemed as the most fundamental element in all existing artworks. Artists were often labeled as, for example, Picasso from Cubism or Seurat from Pointillism. These personal styles, de facto, signify the artists’ first person perspective qualities, and mirror their likes and dislikes, their inhibition or passion, their childhood stories, their relationship statuses, among other private life facets of the art creators.

In the first exhibition section, Set Up from the Library reflects Wu’s illustrious characteristics as a conceptual artist. Highly sensitive to the surroundings, he manages to see with his artistic eyes, and a lot of taken-for-granted spatial elements can be contextualized in no time and ready for examination on meaningful terms. Life in Transition, on the other hand, straightforwardly showcases Budden’s favorite and most intimate topic -- the circle of life. According to Budden, the life cycle of foliage is the miniature of his own life. The blossom of life oftentimes entails the starting point of decline. Such bold statements clearly manifest their true selves via the works they created.

《 從圖書館出發 》
Set Up from the Library

藝術家借用政大圖書館室內191盆植物盆栽,作為探討公共空間的引子,這些角落的有機物,無聲地進行光合作用,灌溉者有意識地綠化環境,而觀看者的知覺、無知覺,默默形塑了空間視覺,讓我們從圖書館這盆栽引子出發,討論校園,討論社會環境。

The artist utilizes the 191 pots of plant in the NCCU Library as the introduction to a series of discussion on public space. These organic existences silently perform photosynthesis and those who water the plants consciously make the surroundings greener. On the other hand, the viewers’ perception, as well as the absence of perception, unnoticedly shapes the visuals of the space, allowing us to embark on our journey from the library plants and initiate the discussions on the environment of the campus, or even the society.

《 生命的轉變 》
Life in Transition

本組剪紙作品受到葉片在不同季節中的各個生命階段為靈感創作而成。每件作品都有獨特的形狀、構成與色彩,並飽含生命在存活過程中留下來的軌跡。葉片就像時光流逝在自然生態中的具象,告知著人們四季的變換。它們標示著某些事物的終結與另一些新事物的誕生。

This series of cut paper artworks is based on a variety of leaves at different stages in their existence depending on the season. Each of them has a unique shape, form and color and contains many traces of experiences of a life lived. Leaves are nature’s way of showing us the passing of time through the changing of the seasons. They represent the end of something and the start of something new.
