亞億藝術空間展出兩位生活在台灣的法國藝術家,卡佑民和包德納的作品,透過觀念與紀實攝影探討「神明計畫」。

第一次看到卡佑民的負片時,如同藝術家命名的「不僅止於負片」,彷彿進入另一個未知的世界,擁有十年負片攝影經驗的他,確實讓觀者感受到不單單只有一個角度來看世界,任何人、事、物都有另一面的存在。

包德納的攝影傳達藝術家眼中臺灣人的質樸熱情、富人情味,在巷弄間,捕捉了臺灣特有的文化藝術和人文氣息。

對台灣大大小小的廟宇感到熟悉,廟代表神明的家,也是民眾信仰的聚集地。從廟宇的建築中,看見文化與藝術的呈現如雕刻和繪畫,也可以從廟會的活動看到許多民間敬神的表演藝術;許多香火鼎盛的廟宇逐漸成為當地的商業中心,小吃攤、金紙店、算命鋪圍繞在周邊。

神明的存在反映了現代社會的價值觀,透過廟宇可以看到民間的人文、藝術及信仰。在現代社會裡文明發展快速,科技進步之下,人與神之間所扮演的角色是否一如往常?

神明計畫-由觀念攝影藝術家卡佑民與紀錄日常的包德納帶領觀者一同探索人-神-現代社會之間的關聯性。


AHM GALLERY is exhibiting the works of two French artists living in Taiwan, Kayoumin and Bernard Bordenave, presenting OMGs with conceptual and documentary photography.

The first time we saw Kayoumin's negative pieces, named by the artist as "Not Totally Negative," it seemed to send me into an unknown world. He has explored the negative photography concept for 10 years, succeedingly taking the viewers to see the world with a diverse perspective. There is more than just one angle to look at people, objects and surroundings. In his works, you'd find an intriguing side according to the artist.

Bernard Bordenave conveys in his photography the personalities of people he met, their hospitality and kindness. In the alleys, he captures moments of daily life that paints a unique yet true face of Taiwanese people and their culture.

Residents in Taiwan are familiar with the variety of temples, large or small, extravagant or simple. It's home of the Gods, and where some of us find faith. We appreciate the sculpture, painting and architecture, and observe the rituals and performances carried out by believers in honor of the Gods. Many frequently-visited temples become a commercial center surrounded by food stalls, street vendors, temple accessory shops, and sometimes fortune tellers.

Gods and their representation reflect the society's value system. Through temples we experience the richness of culture and art, and how people practice their beliefs. In a modern society where civilization evolves rapidly, science and technology advance by nanoseconds, would human and their Gods play the same roles as usual?

OMGs — brought by Kayoumin and Bernard Bordenave in conceptual and documentary photography — leads audience to explore the relation among men, gods and modernity.
