  • 彩虹犀望:施力仁雕塑個展

    穿梭古今,犀牛常是堅韌與和平的象徵。當代藝術家施力仁透過金屬雕塑,使犀牛從獨角珍獸化為具後現代主義的文化符號,並寄寓了自身對當代議題的思考與關注。他將犀牛之於人的關係,化為硬邊結構與現代鎧甲等設計,使犀牛人格化、幾何形體化,更以多樣的現代金屬元素,重新詮釋傳統哲思與精神、反思人類與自然的關係,令其於不同環境中呈現如紀念碑般的莊嚴感與獨特意義。
    本次展出作品中,〈金鋼犀牛〉帶有對科技工藝和未來發展的投射;充滿奇想色彩的〈哈雷金鋼〉,以鉚釘細節完美連接犀牛銳氣與工業動能之魅力;〈犀利元寶〉象徵永恆的同心圓指紋和鼎狀四肢,表達對生命的敬畏與對華人文化的重視;〈卡漫犀牛〉系列則以溫和外型傾吐對世界的祝福。施力仁作品的形態變化,是人類進化史的隱喻,亦是對人類與自然共生共存的希望能量。

    Rhino: The Symbol of Hope Shih Li-Jen Solo Exhibition

    Rhinoceroses are often regarded as symbols of resilience and peace. Contemporary artist Shih Li-Jen transforms the rhinoceros from solitary horned beasts into postmodern cultural symbols through metal sculpture, embodying his own reflections and concerns on contemporary issues. He interprets the relationship between humans and rhinoceroses into designs of hard-edged structures and modern armor, thus humanizing and geometrically stylizing his rhinoceros works. Using various metal elements, he reinterprets traditional philosophical and spiritual ideas, reflecting on the relationship between humans and nature. This enables his works convey a sense of solemnity and unique significance akin to monuments in different environments.
    In this exhibition, "King Kong Rhino" projects a vision of technological craftsmanship and future development; the whimsical "Harley King Kong," with rivet details, seamlessly combines the charm of rhinoceros vigor with industrial dynamism; "Xili and Yuanbao" with concentric fingerprint patterns and tripod-shaped limbs express reverence for life and appreciation for Chinese culture; the "Cartoon Rhino" series, with its gentle appearance, bestows blessings upon the world. The morphological variations in Shih Li-Jen's works serve as a metaphor for human evolution and embody the hopeful energy of coexistence between humans and nature.

    Shih Li-Jen
    Born in 1955 in Changhua, Taiwan, Shih Li-Jen, an internationally renowned art curator and agent in Asia, is active in both Beijing and Taiwan. In recent years, he has gained international recognition in the art world for his bold and innovative rhinoceros series, which boldly break away from traditional mediums and forms. Through his artistic expression, he aims to raise awareness about ecological conservation and species protection. He excels in manipulating form, volume, material, and color to achieve an excellent harmony between his works and the environment, emphasizing the public and social aspects of art.
    His early creative journey ignited his innovative spirit towards different materials and forms, with his artistic themes gradually shifting from figures and animals to rhinoceroses. He was invited to participate in the Venice Biennale in 2017, where "King Kong Rhino" became the first work by a Chinese artist to be exhibited in the Marinaressa park during the Biennale. The following year, he was invited to exhibit at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, making him the first Taiwanese artist at that time whose works spanned both the art and architecture fields in such a major exhibition.
