《 漢字審美 》
Appreciating the Chinese Characters

破體書法又稱變體書法,是打破傳統書法常規形態所創造的新字體,抑或是融合某幾種傳統字體而形成的特殊表現方式。由於藝術家擁有深厚臨帖經驗與極度扎實的書法基底,使其在轉換不同字體書寫時揮灑自如,再加以藝術角度解構漢字字形,而專注在不同字體間的空間分佈、直橫線條的均衡配置上,形成個人風格強烈、美學意義高的破體書法作品。

本次由政治大學委託製作的作品,將校園重要歷史建築四維堂穿透兩層樓面的巨型格狀落地玻璃窗作為一張張透明素淨的稿紙,藝術家融合篆、隸、楷、行、草各書的破體漢字陳設其中,形成一股氣勢宏偉的審美圖像。書寫內容改編自藝術家2018年發表的短文,旨在鼓勵觀眾在辨識文字前先嘗試欣賞不同字體間各異的視覺美感,成為了一組具體視覺與抽象概念充份交互觀照的有趣作品。

Fusion scripts, also known as variant scripts, are new styles that break free from traditional forms and rules, or unique expressions that resulted from combining various traditional styles. Because the artist has rich experiences in copying the calligraphy works of others and is skillful in basic techniques, LEE is able to freely and seamlessly transition between different styles. In addition, the artist dissects Chinese characters from an artistic perspective and focuses on the spatial arrangements between different styles and even-spaced vertical and horizontal lines; this results in a fusion script with high aesthetic value and distinctive personal style.

Commissioned by National Chengchi University, the artist transformed the large grid window of the university's historical building Si Wei Hall, which extends from the first floor to the second floor, into writing paper. The artist’s fusion script, which integrates seal, clerical, regular, semi-cursive, and cursive scripts, creates a magnificent aesthetic image. The content of the calligraphy is an adaption from a short article published by the artist in 2018, the subject of which is to encourage readers to identify the different visual beauty of various calligraphy styles before identifying the characters. This is an interesting work that intertwines the figurative and the visual with abstract concepts.


書寫內容:李蕭錕《漢字的圖像美學》(改編)

漢字具閱讀判別的符號功能,又因象形化有著強烈圖像感,而同時兼具視覺美感經驗; 書寫不只為表意識字,而是純粹的審美藝術,及形而上的美學殿堂。

【 展區介紹 Venue Introduction 】

四維堂於民國47年完工、隔年落成,民國89年翻修為現貌。這個正方形兩層樓高的禮堂在當時的政大建築群中最為堂皇且功能多樣,文化盃合唱比賽、音樂節常年在此舉行,是政大最重要的建築物之一。其名取典於《管子》「禮義廉恥,國之四維」。作為進入政大校門的第一道門面,是校園的精神象徵。
