Each Modern 亞紀畫廊很榮幸宣布「New Horizon:西野壯平・鈴木展」,展出近年來備受矚目的日本當代藝術家西野壯平與鈴木展。兩位藝術家分別以幾近下意識的方法使用攝影與繪畫—直接而巨量的拍攝動作、受神秘力量引導的噴塗—不僅是對媒材極限的挑戰,也能被看作是一種藝術家身體力行的實驗行為,激盪出日常景物中的隱性面貌,開啟了超越認知的地理、天文風景新視野。
⠀⠀
在 15 至 17 世紀的「地理大發現」時,人類開始積極的擴展新大陸,也帶動了世界地圖的急遽繪製。然而,這些地圖無可避免的挾帶了歐洲的帝國主義與殖民主義,試圖以一種巨大高昂的姿態來看待這些全新的地貌與海域。當世界的地理概貌漸漸成型之後,18 世紀出現的攝影術為這些探險者提供了另一種途徑—進入大陸,深入原生部落,拍攝當地居民並將照片發表在故鄉的報章雜誌中。這是人類開始普遍認識「世界」的開始,即使這個「世界」如從 15 世紀使用至今的麥卡托投影法地圖一樣有著巨大落差。而在旅遊普及的現代,所有風景則成為了極小片段的私人記憶,存放在了電腦或手機中。
⠀⠀
西野壯平的作品可以說是這兩種情況的一種混合體。他經常使用大量的照片拼貼成壯闊的自然景觀與城市俯景,如使用了三、四百卷底片拍攝再組合的聖母峰作品《Mountain Line ”Everest”》,或重建東京、倫敦、耶路撒冷、阿姆斯特丹等都市地理的《Diorama Map》系列。對藝術家來說,旅程中所收集的影像碎片並不完整。透過重複的拍攝與拼貼,他將對城市的自身記憶融入,使影像不再只是純粹的紀錄。《Diorama Map》所呈現的視角與造型,可回溯至日本古代的手繪地圖;《Mountain Line ”Everest”》的顏色與敘事法,則令人聯想起浮世繪中的登山圖;而所有打破攝影視覺透視的美感,則呼應了東方山水畫的散點透視,以及其所對應的宇宙觀。
⠀⠀
當我們還在地球上試圖認識眼前的景物時,有另一種無法遍讀的語言早已存在。它可能來自遠古時期,也可能來自漆黑的太空之中。2021 年初,印尼蘇拉威西島上的一處洞穴壁畫被檢定為目前已知的最古老壁畫:來自四萬四千年前的人類之手,描繪了動物與手掌。在這些圖像的另一端,是 1977 年所發射的航海家探測器金唱片,以及 2020 年末所接收到的「太空訊號」。在古老圖騰與未知訊號之間,我們不斷地將兩者放在一起,渴望從中找出全新的訊息。
⠀⠀
鈴木展的繪畫便是連接著這兩種神秘語言的通道。在他作品中的圖案更像是一種語言字型,看似古文明的圖案,也是外來訊號的一種具體化。早期的系列《bacteria sign》將枯葉埋進染黑的土壤裡,接著再挖掘出這些葉梗的排列,最終形成了許多小型的納斯卡線。最具代表性的《Constellation》系列則在將圖形繪製在了畫布表面的土壤上,貌似來自外星的符號以「考古」的方式再現,意指著他們並非不速之客,而是早已存在。新作《Photon Flux》更趨近於瀰漫在漆黑宇宙中的電波紋路,夾雜著未知的符號,期待著被接收。於此,鈴木展的新視野將地表與宇宙揉和成了一種超然狀態。
⠀⠀
西野壯平與鈴木展分別利用攝影與繪畫,從街頭一偶和細小筆觸擴張到幾近無限,將展覽的視角爬升到了卡門線。即使科學早已看見最遙遠的已知星體GN-z11,但我們才剛要開始在這個新視野中向下俯瞰海洋、板塊、歷史、與物種,也同時向上望見星空、無垠、與未知的宇宙。

⠀⠀
Each Modern is pleased to announce “New Horizon” by two under-the-spotlight Japanese contemporary artists Sohei Nishino and Hiraku Suzuki. With their creative methods of massive photo collaging and subconscious drawing, the artists present not only their challenges to the material but their exploration between and beyond the horizon of geography and astronomy.
⠀⠀
During the "Great Geographical Discovery" of the 15th to 17th centuries, human began to actively expand the new world, which also led to the numerous making of the world map. However, these maps inevitably carried imperialism and colonialism from Europe, trying to look at these new landforms and sea areas with a huge and high attitude. When the world's geographic overview gradually took shape, photography emerged in the 18th century to provide these explorers with another way-to enter the mainland, go deep into the native tribes, take pictures of local residents and publish the photos in newspapers and magazines in their hometowns. This is the beginning of the universal understanding of the "world" by us, even though this "world" is incorrect like the Mercator projection map used since the 15th century. In the modern era of tourism, all landscapes have become very small pieces of private memories, stored in computers or mobile phones.
⠀⠀
Sohei Nishino’s work can be seen as a mixture of both situations. He often uses a large number of photos to collage to form magnificent natural landscapes and urban panoramic views, such as the Everest work "Mountain Line ‘Everest’", which uses three or four hundred rolls of negatives to shoot and recombine, or rebuild Tokyo, London, Jerusalem, "Diorama Map" series of urban geography such as Amsterdam. For the artist, the image fragments collected during the journey are not complete. Through repeated shootings and collages, he integrates his own memories of the city so that the images are no longer just pure records. The perspectives and shapes presented in "Diorama Map" can be traced back to ancient Japanese hand-painted maps; the colors and narrative method of "Mountain Line ‘Everest’" are reminiscent of mountain climbing pictures in Ukiyo-e; and all break the photographic vision The beauty of perspective echoes the scattered perspective of oriental landscape paintings and the corresponding cosmology.
⠀⠀
While we are still trying to comprehend the scenes on the Earth, there is an unreadable language already exists around us. It might come from the ancient time; it might come from the dark universe. In the beginning of 2021, oldest cave drawing was discovered on the Sulawesi Island, Indonesia: the animals and the hands drawn about 44,000 years ago. On the other side of the images, we will find the Voyager Golden Records launched in 1977 and the space signal detected in 2020. Between the ancient totems and the unknown signal, we restlessly juxtapose them and eager to find brand new information out of them.
⠀⠀
Suzuki’s drawing is the tube connecting both ends. The signs in his work are like lingual characters, embodying the messags from the ancient civilization and the outer space. His early series “bacteria sign”first arranges and buries dead leaves in the dyed earth. Later, Suzuki excavates only the midribs which compose multiple tiny Nazca Lines. His well-known drawing series “Constellation” present the artist’s silver strokes on the canvas with earth. These signs are now shown in an archeological appearance, indicating their timeproof existence. The radio waves fulfill the dark universe in the new series “Photon Flux” also express a status of to be received. The horizon in Suzuki’s work is more about a mixture of the surface and the deeper universe.
⠀⠀
Through photography and drawing, Nishino and Suzuki expand their vision from micro to and elevate the horizon to the Karman line. Although we can now observe the most distant known galaxy GN-z11, we are just to begin to look down at the oceans, the continents, the history, and the species; and look up at the stars, the infinity and the further uncharted universe.
