愛的樣子

愛的樣子

埃里希•弗羅姆(Erich Fromm,1900-1980)曾言「愛」是天性,每個人都需要給予愛和接受愛。惟有通過彼此的愛和諒解,人類才能緊緊結合在一起,愛是一種藝術、一種能力,需要去學習,才能愛得恰當。

愛與藝術的本質其實並無二樣,二者皆能通過自律、專注、耐心,察覺到其對於己身的重要性。然而,我們時常談論愛,卻不容易參與藝術。若言「愛」與「藝術」同為人性之本能,是否有一時片刻能將兩者等式而觀-----「愛 = 藝術」或「藝術 = 愛」?

賴純純的藝術生命中,深信人、自然與宇宙所有一切總體存在的愛,得以通過藝術的純淨與自由,讓藝術如同愛一般永恆不死,作品《無盡的愛》係以流動的透明晶體匯集而成的大型愛心圖像,象徵人心的匯聚及芸芸眾相。楊北辰基於一個單純的再現信仰,以超級寫實的木雕形式探索情感記憶與時間性,此次參展作品圍繞在他生命中三位重要的女性:母親、妻子、女兒,尤見藝術家對於自身家庭情感的深切投映。

柳依蘭的創作聚焦在生命的關懷與想望,她認為創作和生命都是一種修行的過程,因藝術依傍人而存在,透過她的視角及內心中柔軟的愛,以藝術形式深度側寫人性中的愛恨嗔癡。90後的倪瑞宏《愛他,但要更愛自己》系列是以當下網路時代中女孩形象的真實與虛幻作為女性自我認同的反覆探索,及生命中戀愛、婚姻之親密關係的磨合。藝術家更邀請觀眾於展覽期間自拍婚紗照,讓想婚、未婚、不婚的女孩們皆能KUSO圓自己的婚紗夢。

王德瑜以極簡的塑膠布材充滿氣體,藉由觀眾與作品的互動,反映人與人、人與空間之間密切交互的關係,在空氣的流動、沉浮、及包覆中產生的私密性體驗,以觸覺體感回到如母體般的原初的、愛的生命經驗。何景窗以新詩、書法作為創作軸線,用自成一格的字體骨架,書寫題材多以日常雜感夾帶個人的幽默感開展。《天天愛上,天天分離》、《情詩投河》等作品皆以情愛延展,同時她在館內5公尺牆面上現地以大筆書寫情詩。

李翰對於愛的詮釋,則來自於《舉牌小人》的精神:我們相信有許多美好的事等著我們高舉。舉牌的意象象徵一種支持的態度,李翰為此次展覽設計2位舉牌小人高舉「我」「♥」,現場提供小黑板讓觀者自由書寫愛的宣言,加入舉牌小人行列一起舉牌。

過往此時向來是充滿愛的時節,由東西方各式節慶交織而成的社會氛圍,是關乎家庭、情人、親子之間的相生與共。本次展覽試圖以愛為題,探討人們如何愛? 如何表達愛? 愛是甚麼樣子? 透過七位藝術創作者將無形的愛賦予視覺、空間及體感的可能,以藝術體現愛的真義,讓愛如藝術般源遠流長。


As Erich Fromm (1900-1980) said “Love is human nature, everyone should give and receive love.” Only through love and forgiveness can humans be closely connected. Love as an art and an ability, is only appropriate when we learn to love. 

There is no difference between love and art, in both of which can we sense importance of us through self-discipline, concentration and patience. Although we constantly discuss love, we barely participate in art. If both art and love are human nature, shall we consider that “love equals to art”?
 
In Jun T. Lai’s artistic career, she believes that through art’s purity and freedom, art can be as eternal as love is in human, nature, and universe. Forming a huge heart with transparent crystal pieces, the artwork “Endless Love” represents the gathering of the mass and their hearts. The artist Pei Chen Yang, basing on his pure faith in reproduction, explores emotions and memories with hyper-realistic wood sculptures. The exhibited artworks represent three important females in his life-mother, wife and daughter, reflecting his deep affection to his family.
 
Focusing on the concern and desire of life, the artist Yi Lan Liu regards creation and life as a process of self-practice, as art can’t exist without human. She profiles love and hatred of human nature deeply through her tender love and viewpoint of art. The series artwork of the artist Jui Hung Ni “Love him, but love yourself more” depicts women's discovery of self-identity and run-in to relationships through the real and unreal female images in the internet era. The artist also invites viewers to take a selfie in wedding dress in the exhibition, allowing unmarried females to fulfill their wedding dream in a parody way.
 
Creating with plastic fabric filled with air, the artist Te Yu Wang defines the close relationship between people and space through viewers’ interaction with her artwork “NO.86-2”. As feeling the flowing air and the cladding fabric, the viewers return to a womb-like original loving experience. The artist Ching Chwang Ho creates poems and calligraphy about her feelings in daily life with unique hand-writing font. She extends the theme of love and creates her artworks “Everyday We Love, Everyday We Separate” and “Love Poem River”. Meanwhile, she writes a love poem on the 5-meter-wide wall in Hsinchu City Art Gallery.
 
The artist Han Lee’s artwork “Up Up (Holding Placars)” shows his interpretation of love: there are many wonderful things waiting for our uplifting. The placards of “I” and “♥” designed for this exhibition represents a supporting attitude. Moreover, viewers are invited to write their love declaration on the message-board, joining the rank of “Up Up”.
 
In this loving season, the atmosphere interweaving eastern and western festivals is related to the relationships in family, lovers, and parent-children. With the topic of Love, this exhibition attempts to discuss not only how love is practiced and expressed, but also the images of love. Through granting invisible love visual, spatial and somatosensory possibilities, the seven artists convey the meaning of love with art, making love last like art.
