    瑪莉娜.克魯斯

  • 策展人:派崔克.佛洛雷斯

    《瑪莉娜.克魯斯:潮汐時間表》是藝術家於台灣首度大型個展,由受邀擔任2022年「第59屆威尼斯國際美術雙年展」台灣館策展人—派崔克.佛洛雷斯(Patrick Flores)進行策畫,將呈現瑪莉娜.克魯斯(Marina Cruz)最觸動人心、帶有逼視感的家族歷史衣物微型細節特寫之大型油畫創作,與拼貼、攝影、文字、刺繡等多重融合技法與媒材,完整展示藝術家二十餘年間創作過程中的各個面相。

    家族故事與存物記憶是克魯斯二十多年來持續編織的一張創作之網,這張網除了交織著藝術家的母系三代故事外,也織紡入觀者欣賞作品時所勾起的各種回憶。它就像一個有機體般的不斷成長,以聚焦於衣物細節與表情的各種樣貌,持續演繹出一幅幅交揉著女性身體與生命、時間與記憶、歷史與傷痕的人生風景。

    由於克魯斯住家的房子經歷過多次洪水,這種自然現象既是危難也是慣例。她將水災留下的污跡記錄在畫中,把災難發生的日子寫在記錄潮汐的表格裡。藝術家透過這種獨特的方式,展示了人類在應對自然變化過程中的滄桑經歷。在目前全球都壟罩在疫情的挑戰中,克魯斯表示:「疫情同時也改變了我對空間的感知,讓我理解家屋是如此重要。現在定義的家是建築物,家人是與你同住的人,但其實遠超於此,他們是我們觀察世界的基本架構,像是我們社會群體的微縮,我們如何理解家人與建構家屋對我們的心理健康有極大的影響,它可以偵測我們幸福的程度,小小的事件都會影響每天的生活,...。我時時刻刻提醒自己,這波疫情如同生命終會消逝一樣,未知也無法預測,身於其中我深感生命的渺小,我們必須學習尊重與臣服我們所信仰更高形式的存在,對我來說,我們的生命都在神的手中,我由衷希望疫情過後,因為共苦使我們成為對互相與對世界都更好的人。」

    大環境的現況,之於回應策展人將這次展覽命名為《潮汐時間表》,不僅扣合了克魯斯的生命故事,也隱喻了藝術家的善感被濃縮在潮汐表裡頭,以及大自然中的潮起潮落與歷史的變遷。

    Following the special exhibition of Yoshitomo Nara, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts (KdMoFA) has collaborated with Mind Set Art Center (MSAC) to present a heavyweight exhibition: “Tide Table” by Filipino female artist Marina Cruz. This will be Cruz’s first museum show in Taiwan and a fruit of her long-term collaboration with MSAC, which has built a deep engagement in Asian contemporary art and unique tastes in art selection, it serves as the trustworthy platform for collectors. The exhibition is curated by Dr. Patrick Flores, who will serve as the chief curator for Taiwan at the 59th International Art Exhibition, Venice Biennale 2022. The show presents a collection of vital artworks from the artistic practice of Marina Cruz, which involves diverse artistic techniques and media. The artworks on display include paintings on canvases, fabric collages, laminated photos, and embroidery evoked by the artist’s personal history intertwined with the biography of her house comprehensively. Altogether, the collection showcases a variety of aspects of her artistic career spanning over more than 20 years.

    Marina Cruz grew up with her maternal grandmother in an old house as her parents were both busy working. During her youth, she developed a deep connection with the historical objects of her family, the old house and the maternal genealogy. Cruz’s practice focuses on the motif of familial memories and existence of life. With fine strokes and elegant lines, Cruz paints the vintage clothes that the family elders sewed by hand. The practice allows her to record details of her residence and to awaken parts of her personal history.

    The house was also subject to frequent floods, a natural phenomenon that was considered both a disaster and a routine occurrence. Cruz records the stains left by the floods and the dates of these incidents in a time table. The unique record is her way of presenting the trials and tribulations that humans go through in tackling changes in nature. The curator has named the exhibition “Tide Table” as a way to reflect Cruz’s life story and to hint that the artist has condensed much of her sentiments, as well as the shifts in nature and history, in the tide table.
