  • 安卓藝術將於2019年12月14日至2020年1月18日推出代理藝術家石晉華的個展「向大師致敬」,為畫廊慶祝10周年的活動揭開序幕,而這也是藝術家繼2017年於高雄市立美術館的「線–石晉華當代宗教藝術展」後,首次完整發表的全新系列。開幕座談將於12月14日(星期六)14:30舉辦,隨後於16:30舉行開幕酒會,我們誠摯邀請您的蒞臨。

    「向大師致敬」是石晉華為安卓十周年獻上的一次特別展出,藉由這場向過往歷史上的藝文大家致敬的個展,石晉華對藝術史上一些啟發或深刻影響過他的藝術家和經典作品進行研究,並以鉛筆、油彩、影像和立體的多元媒材,與這些歷史經典的創作進行對話並發展出具有創造性的10多組新作品。這場展覽的致敬對象並不僅止於視覺藝術,也含括音樂與文學領域,其中觸及的大師有藝術家霍爾班(Hans Holbein)、塞尚(Paul Cézanne)和牧谿、杜象(Marcel Duchamp)、馬內(Edward Manet)、林布蘭(Rembrandt)、蘇丁(Chaim Soutine)、賈柯梅蒂(Alberto Giacometti)、草間彌生(Yayoi Kusama),以及當代攝影家曼.雷(Man Ray)、音樂家貝多芬(Beethoven)和哲人孔子,文學家蘇軾、卡謬(Albert Camus)…等。致敬方式有些是在內容方面進行另外觀點的切入或調整方向;有些則在形式方面與傳統產生古今的對話來更新意義。而作品中大量聚焦、出現的「身體」、「屍體」、「軀殼」,更試圖碰觸以下幾個面向:當代人類的生活受制於經濟與社會的影響,疲於奔命、身不由己、靈魂缺席、莫可奈何地苟活著,這些過勞或情緒與慾望的壓抑,已成為很普遍的生命經驗。然而,對我們的存在更亙古的逼迫與詰問是生命的無常與存在的意義。痛苦、死亡與虛無就在旁邊,距離不遠,且難有例外。不論石晉華選擇的藝術形式是行為、表演、繪畫或雕塑,最終面對、聚焦的始終是他個人關懷和表達的生命課題:無法避免的死亡、無常、痛苦、孤單、徒勞、悲哀、荒謬、虛無、無意義…。以及,藝術做為一種語言的存在,對它具有歷史性的自覺與持續精進的企圖。

    儘管延續2017年「線–石晉華當代宗教藝術展」中強烈的宗教意味和生命探尋,但石晉華在此次展出中似乎有意模糊東西方之間的差異,回到一種生命存在的根本情境,進而探索跨文化裡生命存在所面對的普遍課題。

    【關於藝術家】

    Mind Set Art Center is honoured to present the solo exhibition of Shi Jin-Hua, Homage to the Masters, in Taipei from 14 December 2019 to 18 January 2020, as a prelude to embark on a series of celebrations for the gallery’s 10th anniversary. It is the first time Shi presents the comprehensive latest body of works after Lines – Shi Jin-Hua’s Religious Art at Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts in 2017. You are cordially invited to attend the opening talk on 14 December, Saturday, at 2:30 pm, which followed by the opening reception at 4:30pm. The artist will be present.

    Homage to the Masters is a special project of Shi Jin-Hua for Mind Set Art Center’s 10th anniversary, a ground where the artist utilizes to pay homage to historical figures in arts and cultures. He has researched the artists who deeply inspire or influence him and also the classic artworks. With pencil, oil painting, image, and dimensional medium in diversity, he creates conversations and develops new artworks of greater creativity. The saluted subjects not only limited to visual arts but also fields of music and literature, including the artist Paul Cézanne, Marcel Duchamp, Alberto Giacometti, Hans Holbein, Yayoi Kusama, Edward Manet, Muqi, Rembrandt, Chaim Soutine, and also the contemporary photographer Man Ray, the musician Beethoven, the philosopher Confucius, the writer Albert Camus and Su Shi, etc. Some homage being paid by switching the cut-in angles or adjusting direction; in terms of forms, some renew the meaning by traveling time to dialogue with traditional manners. Tremendous appearance of “flesh”, “dead body”, and “body shell” in the works tempts to associate with the followings aspects: nowadays people have kept constantly on the run because constrained to the economics and society, incapable of resistance, absence of soul, and a life without a destination. Overworking or suppressed emotions and desires have become the common experience of every human being. However, we eternally pushing the boundary and questioning our existence could be impermanence of life and meaning of existence. Pain, death and nihility are by our side and merely exceptional to anyone. Either concept, performance, painting or sculpture, any form Shi Jin-Hua has chosen in art, always circles back to face and focus on the artist personal care and expression of life lessons - unavoidable death, impermanence, pain, loneliness, futile effort, grief, absurdity, nihility, and meaninglessness... Moreover, art sustains as a kind of language, which owns historywise awareness and urges for continuing progress.

    Even though this exhibition continues strong religious implications and exploration of life in “Lines – Shi Jin-Hua’s Religious Art ” in 2017, the artist seems to intentionally obscure the difference between the East and West and return to the fundamental scenario of a live of being. A step further, he quests the universal issues brought by the existence of life in a cross-cultural entity.
