前言

-何汶玦

在进行了多年的绘画探索后,我在2006年开始投入到雕塑装置作品的创作中。

这一次在白盒子艺术馆的展览,是我首次展示自己的雕塑和装置作品,呈现自己有关权力、情欲和死亡这三个主题的作品,在艺术创作中,我喜欢简单直接,是否有迂回的思考和深入的内涵观者自有解读。

在这一次雕塑和装置作品的材料选择上,我偏重于黄金。在我看来,艺术家对于材料特性的认识,可以直接反应其作品的美学观念,材料就如同血肉,是艺术之魂的载体。在选材中,虽然青铜是雕塑及装置作品中常见的材料,黄金因其造价高昂,并未在艺术家创作中被普遍使用,但它却是最能够体现我对于展览主题权力、情欲和死亡的认识的材质。黄金让人产生困扰,千百年来始终束缚着人类的命运,它象征着永恒、权力、财富等等,自古以来有关黄金的故事数不甚数,这些故事大多有关激情与冒险,常显得极为神奇又令人迷醉,但事实是人们又不断会因其引起了贪婪的欲望导致战争和死亡而唏嘘感慨。

除了黄金以外,陶瓷、汉白玉和青铜也是这一部分作品的重要材料,它们与黄金类似,皆是或者曾经是身份、权力和财富的象征。我利用这些材质表达我对于生命、社会、世界的理解方式,它们体现了我对于眼下社会现实的矛盾态度,一方面我是一个极度理想主义的人,对人生充满着幻想和希望,而另一方面在面对现实世界的时候,我告诉自己要接受所有和我想象中有偏差的事实,这样我才能够不断地进步。在整个展览的作品中,易碎的陶瓷和汉白玉与稳固的青铜及黄金形成的反差感、矛盾感,是我着重追求的,我认为正是这种矛盾和反差使我们学会了反思自身,这才有了人类历史上的一次又一次变革。

 

Foreword 

 

After ongoing exploration in painting for a couple of years, in 2006, I began to devote myself to the tentative idea of sculpture and installation art. 

 

The exhibition at Whitebox Art Center demonstrates for the first time my abstract paintings and installation works. This time, I choose the works themed with power, lust and death. I like to keep things simple and straightforward. But you would naturally have your own judgement on how circuitous the thinking is and how deep the connotation is. 

 

When choosing the materials for these works, I favored gold. In my opinion, the artist's understanding of the characteristics of materials mirrors his aesthetic concept of the works. The materials, as flesh is to the blood, are the carrier of the soul of art. Although bronze is commonly used in sculpture and installations while gold for its high cost has not been widely used by artists in the creation, the material of gold could embody to the most my awareness of the theme of the exhibition, power, lust and death. Gold symbolizes eternity, power, wealth, and so on. It troubles the human and has always fettered the fate of the human for thousands of years. There are numerous stories since ancient times about gold, most of which talks about the passion and adventure, often extremely magical and fascinating, but the heavy fact is that people's greed of gold had been leading to continuous war and death.

 

In addition to gold, other important materials for these works are ceramic, white marble and bronze. They are similar to gold; all are or have been a symbol of rank, power and wealth. The fragile ceramic and white marble make contrast and contradict to the solid bronze and gold, which is the very concern of me. I think it is from this contrast and contradiction that we learn to introspect and that reform has being born in the history of mankind time after time. I use these materials to express my way of understanding of the life, the society and the world, and my ambivalent attitude to the social reality of the moment: on the one hand I am extremely idealistic, full of fantasy and hope toward life, while on the other hand in the face of the real world, I have to tell myself to accept all the facts different from my envision, even often feel disappointed.
