繼2011年國美館大型個展《空身幻影》之後,暌違三年,臺灣知名雕塑大師李光裕將於采泥藝術舉辦《空山-李光裕2014新作個展》,預計將展出近25件全新作品。「空山」一詞,是李光裕對於佛學「空有不二」的體悟。或許人生無常,不許著相,以無執的態度面對人間百態,是對生命有更深層的參透。對於創作,李光裕跳脫過去目的導向的「唯物性」,而任憑自我悟性成為源源不絕的創意之流,以「不設限」重新定義自身創作的內涵與定義。

Following LEE Kuang-Yu’s solo exhibition at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in 2011, he decided to take a temporary break from the clamor of mainstream contemporary art to head to the mountains, seeking to    rediscover the connection between creativity and consciousness. Three years later, LEE Kuang-Yu is holding  “Mountain‧Empiness – LEE Kuang-Yu Solo Exhibition 2014” at the Chini Gallery. Starting over again with 25  completely new pieces, he is declaring a new way of artistic thinking in his personal creations. With the title  “Mountain‧Empiness”  LEE is expressing his understanding of the Buddhist concept that emptiness and existence  are not necessarily antithetical. “Mountain‧Empiness” is LEE’s comprehension of “the non-duality of emptiness and  form”. Absorbed the natural environment of the mountains, he reflected upon the juncture between inspiration and  sublimation. With an ascetic attitude, he pondered on all walks of humanity, reaching the most profound revelations  about life itself,  and the hope that everyone will face the complexity of the world having eliminated craving, allowing  them to advance to a deeper understanding of life. In this exhibition, the visitor can explore how LEE Kuang-Yu has  enacted an “unlimited” redefinition of his work and the themes explored therein, while experiencing the quality and  themes of the art which he is able to create in any circumstance.

李光裕這次重新詮釋自己所擅長的「身體」議題,透過不同的造形與空間結構表現,呈現不同過往的雕塑語彙,以示個人藝術創作的新紀元。在新作《飛來》與《太極》中,簡單的男女相擁動作,李光裕將「圓渾」與「扁平」兩種造形交互使用,讓任何動作或姿態,合乎運動原理而更貼近人體結構的運動狀態。《忘醉》則將荷葉以擬人化的手法,重新賦予身形詮釋的可能。除了造形的改變,這些作品亦表現不同於過去的厚實而越發輕盈,是象徵藝術家在自我超脫後重獲自由的輕鬆自在,幻化為更為鮮活的造形。美的意識即是生存意識,李光裕的新作蘊含著個人對於世界宇宙詮釋的改變,呼應藝術家對於人生的全新參照與體悟。

此次個展,采泥藝術特別邀請到國內知名策展人林宏璋、知名建築師暨交大建築研究所所長龔書章、知名廣告人黃文博,造形美學大師蘇宗雄以及新生代藝評家吳樹安為文撰稿。這些文章收錄在即將發行《空山-李光裕2014新作》畫冊當中,希冀透過更多專業眼光來解讀李光裕的雕塑作品,讓李光裕的雕塑藝術向生活擴散並開啟多點連結,賦予讀者更加多元的觀看視角,參悟李光裕博大精深的創作哲理。

2014年,是李光裕六十歲的日子,采泥藝術亦推出「光裕六十」系列展覽活動,以本展為序曲,隨即接續一連串臺灣各地以及大陸北京的巡迴展。此次,采泥藝術亦特別邀請林宏璋、龔書章,以及知名建築師張哲夫將分別與李光裕進行學術性的深度對談,透過藝術與雕塑、建築與雕塑的專業論述,精闢剖析李光裕雕塑藝術的風格書寫與文化本質。

另外,也特別邀請兩位年輕雕塑家楊北辰、談獻華,和李光裕進行一場師生對談,以深入淺出的雕塑語彙,帶領觀者一窺雕塑藝術的巧配哲學。采泥藝術希冀透過各方面精闢的學理交流,賦予觀者多元的觀看視角來探究李光裕作品的深厚底蘊,進而在「空山」一展所蘊藏的禪思哲理之中,瞭解藝術與人生之間相互參照的緊密扣連,積累關乎人生更深刻的省悟。詳細展覽訊息與座談資訊,請洽采泥藝術。

In terms of the development history of Taiwanese sculpture, the language of LEE Kuang-Yu’s creations cross cultural and historical boundaries, representing a cultural marker in which traditional Buddhist and Daoist thought intertwines with modernism. His works represent a core example of the “non-historical”, creating a unique language with his incomparable skill, style and materials which in turn embodies the complex nature of Taiwanese art. It is also an expression of the foundation of native Taiwanese culture.  In this exhibition, LEE makes use of varied collages and installations, expressing the confrontational potential of his work in every break, crush and bend of his material, thereby narrating the transition and evolution of his work from ‘the material body’ to the metaphysical ‘powerful body’. These new works reveal an increasing sense of grace, representing the freedom and relaxation afforded to the artist once they have detached from the self, reflecting in turn the artist’s new understanding of humanity. With these insightful academic explorations, this exhibition hopes to be able to guide more art-lovers towards an understanding of “Mountain‧Empiness” and the exhibition’s meditative philosophy, along with a deeper understanding and experience of life itself.
