“无处存在”田芳芳/田园园双个展在威尼斯开幕

2014年06月03日15:25  新浪图片 评论中大奖(1人参与) 收藏本文 (左起)喻高,田芳芳,Luca Caldironi,田园园 5月31日傍晚,田芳芳、田园园姐妹的双个展《无处存在》,在意大利威尼斯Castello925画廊开幕。尽管是傍晚,威尼斯的阳光依然很明媚,开幕在轻松的氛围中进行。此次展览由中方策展人喻高和意方策展人Luca Caldironi 共同策划,展出的全部是为此次展览创作的新作品。 田芳芳2011年毕业于中央美院油画系三画室,田园园2012年毕业于四川美院油画系。她们以往的创作大部分是油画,田园园尝试过一些装置和影像。在此次的《无处存在》展中,她们带来近三十幅纸上作品和一件名为《无处不在》的影像。 较之以前,这次的作品呈现出更多的自由和洒脱,在放松的状态下凭直觉来完成,轻松之中又不失严谨。 策展人喻高认为,女性在从事艺术的过程中,往往先从个人体验出发,关注自身的种种直觉、种种焦虑、内心的跌宕起伏;进而关注自己的周期性焦虑和纠结;再进一步,思考存在与非存在的形而上命题。从这方面讲,女性更容易进入哲学思考。但这种思考是非逻辑性的,随着意识流转的。 古希腊哲学家高尔吉亚作为西方哲学史上不可知论的代表,曾提出过三大命题,一,无物存在;二,即使有物存在我们也无法真正认识它;三,即使我们对某物有认知也无法传递给别人,因为我们只能传递语言和符号,而语言和符号不能代表被认知的事物。而东方的不可知论是“逍遥游”式的,庄子认为自己无法辨认“我梦蝴蝶”,还是“蝴蝶梦我”,我与蝴蝶哪一个是“存在”,哪一个是“存在的衍生”。东方人很少因逻辑推理而进入“白马非马”的诡辩,更多的兴趣放在:承认不可知、非存在的绝对性和存在的相对性之后,我们还能做什么。 我们是普通人,很少有人能过君临天下的生活,也很少有人会过极度贫穷衰败的生活或遇到意外灾害。但普通人的痛苦、迷惑一点不会少,在看似平静的生活和平静的外表下,会有许许多多的纠结,这些会伴随我们一生。 田芳芳、田园园的作品价值,正是在于她们把自己能做主的事物作为探索的主体,自己的爱情、自己的梦、自己儿时的回忆…《梦》系列,《浮生》系列、《无处不在》,这些真实的东西渊源不断从一个人的心中涌出,她们的灵感和创造力也会源源不断。很多人迷失在艺术这条路上,太想参与社会、太想关注宏大的主题,而作品说出来的话只能是新闻联播或半岛电视台的言辞翻版。 再过几天就是威尼斯建筑双年展,会迎来许许多多的参观者。威尼斯的这个神话越来越不是神话了,但毕竟中国想去意大利办展的,和意大利想来中国办展的人相比,短时间内不会对等,这是我们无法改变的。我们能做主的是,早一些给自己创造学习的机会,让自己忙碌一次。在开幕式上,两位艺术家为观众表演了一个不经意的行为,把发泡胶打进两个盘子,胶迅速膨胀并不断往下流淌,甚至大块坠落,在慢慢固化过程中,她们洒上红色与黑色颜料,最后把一瓶意大利红酒撒在上面,看上去像两块手工蛋糕。 这个不可控的行为让人想起《拍案惊奇》中的一句话:“万事分已定,浮生空自忙。”艺术让人更彻底认识这一切,认识之后还要抓紧时间忙碌,忙碌的结果其次,重要的是让生命随时释放。艺术是能给人带来幸福感的,而幸福感来自释放生命。 开幕现场 行为表演现场 行为表演作品 田芳芳作品 田芳芳作品 田园园作品 田园园作品 Source: http://photo.sina.com.cn/info/2014-06-03/1525203.shtml?qq-pf-to=pcqq.c2c

Disoriented in Venice (until May 18)

A show and a talk series at Castello 925, a gallery placed in a still authentic piece of city Disoriented: this is the condition of many of us who often do not take it seriously and undervalue it. A disorientation could be geographical, political and historical (but even all these ones meshed up). Castello 925 […]

Collage and Politics, the Dialogue of Meaning

by Nicola Davide Angerame Collage art is a blend of ideas from various places, from random encounters with images and materials taken from the real world, removed and regenerated into a new existence. Collage is always a pure, ethical image. It is “stealing” everyday images, now drained of their sense due to over-exploitation via trade […]

Collage as an Esthetic-ethical Paradigm

by Nicola Davide Angerame We see what we know. Thus the art historian Ernst Gombrich summarized a concept that is of decisive importance for our approach to the world, culture, and the arts. The sense of sight is one of the distinctive human characteristics and is the primary tool with which we “get to know” […]
