Exhibition Overview

英國歷史學家亞當・圖茲 (Adam Tooze)於 《金融時報》(Financial Times) 以「多重危機」(polycrisis)為 2022 年動盪的環境、地緣政治、經濟下了精準定義,而2023年開春似乎仍能適切形容。 俄烏戰爭、經濟通膨、韓國踩踏事件等諸多社會危機再再顯示人性的貪婪與迷失,且與自然持續處於失衡的狀態。 「Human Desire」 匯聚當今日本收藏界矚目的 12 位藝術家,闡述藝術如何感悟現今人類處境,並直觀人們內心的欲望,展覽從 YANG ARTS Collection 揀選 30 件繪畫和 1 件裝置,回應與拓展策展構思。

藝術家從個體生命經驗和文化脈絡,連結外在環境的脈動。 藝術不僅關乎藝術家自身,亦清晰反映他們對世界恆變的體察。 如今井麗 (Ulala Imai) 以奶油色調柔和地記錄疫情間的居家日常靜物;加藤泉 (Izumi Kato) 自 2018 年開始著迷創作大型織物裝置, 《Untitled》(2019) 即巧妙結合拾得物 (found objects) 和拼接人形概念,思索繪畫的趣味性以及人和萬物的依存關係;而曾建穎 (Tseng Chien-Ying ) 則藉由東方媒材和灰色調述說當代社會詭譎幽暗的氛圍。

此外,亦有藝術家選擇聚焦內在真實感受,以繪畫作為載體,讓 「身心合一」 的身體行動直覺捕捉瞬間情緒和喚起記憶。 近藤亜樹 (Aki Kondo) 使用多種工具如畫筆、刮刀、噴漆,協同塗抹、滴灑等繪畫技巧,以厚實的壓克力筆觸刻畫肌理分明的人臉和天鵝,呈現具有豐沛生命力的畫面;具體派 (Gutai) 的堀尾貞治 (Sadaharu Horio) 則能於極短時間根據自身潛意識完成創作,以粉彩抽象和紙質拼貼拖曳心象風景;小西紀行 (Toshiyuki Konishi) 關注人類行為和情緒,運用動態的波浪線條交疊出幽靈般的個人和家庭肖像。

本展亦是台灣首度完整呈現五木田智央 (Tomoo Gokita) 各階段的創作。 從 「青の時代」(Blue Age)《Don’t Tear Down What Took so Long to Build》(2009) 以天鵝絨般的暈染筆觸、遊走於抽象與具象間的手法解構人體,到戲謔的經典黑白人像畫 《Only Mama Knows》(2017),以及近年用色和風格漸趨內斂的日常彩色畫作 《Changing Room》(2020),可飽覽其追尋 「形」 (shape) 的軌跡轉向。

展覽透過將藝術與自然、日常生活、身體行為連結,藝術家們各自以不同的創作路徑展現人類欲望的多種樣貌。 邀請觀者深觸人性多層次的魅力,並重新思考人類集體的生存情狀。

In the Financial Times, British historian Adam Tooze used the word “polycrisis” to describe the environmental, geopolitical, and economic crises faced in 2022, and it seems also an appropriate term to describe the situation in early 2023. The Russo-Ukrainian War, inflation, the Seoul Halloween stampede, and many other social crises show that humans are greedy and lost, and cannot find balance with nature. In the “Human Desire” exhibition, 12 notable artists share their views about how art reflects human’s current situation and intuits people’s inner desire. 30 paintings and 1 installation from the YANG ARTS Collection are selected to respond and expand the curatorial concept of the exhibition.

The artists connect their individual experiences and cultural context to the external world. Art is not just related to the artist, but also clearly reflects their perception of the changing world. For example, Ulala Imai, uses soft cream tones in still lifes to depict everyday food during the Covid-19 pandemic. Izumi Kato has thrown himself into the creation of huge textile installations since 2018. In Untitled (2019), we see how the artist ingeniously uses found objects to create human figures and explore the playfulness of painting and the interdependence between humans and everything. Tseng Chien-Ying uses Oriental elements and grey tones to depict the weird and dark atmosphere of contemporary society.

There are also artists who focus on inner feelings and painting what they sincerely feel, capturing the emotion of the moment and evoke memories. Aki Kondo uses a variety of tools, such as paintbrushes, palette knives, and sprays, and art techniques like smearing, dripping, or sprinkling. She draws expressive textures of human faces and a swan with thick acrylic brushstrokes to produce a vigorous effect. Sadaharu Horio of the Gutai Group can create from his subconscious mind in a flash, and uses pastels and paper collages to show the mental image. Toshiyuki Konishi focuses on human behaviour and emotions, using overlapping wavy lines to create ghost-like individual and family portraits.

This is the first exhibition in Taiwan to present the pieces from each stage of Tomoo Gokita’s paintings. From the semi-abstract, semi-figurative Don’t Tear Down What Took so Long to Build (2009) of Blue Age, which deconstructs human bodies with velvety smudged strokes, to Only Mama Knows (2017) and Changing Room (2020) in a more gentle tone and style, visitors have full view of his pursuit of “shape”.

The exhibition connects art with nature, daily life, the body, and human behaviour. Artists show the multiple dimensions of human desire in each of their unique ways. Visitors are invited to explore the multiple layers of humanity and rethink the existence of human.
