[ 展覽介紹 ]

采泥藝術推出「影像之聲—台灣新媒體藝術展」,展出台灣知名藝術家周慶輝「人的莊園」(Animal Farm)系列的錄像作品,及台灣備受矚目的年輕藝術家張暉明、廖祈羽以「錄像」、「裝置」、「攝影」等媒材所共同創作的「Mimi Lucy—Back to Life」創作計劃,希望透過兩個精選的新媒體創作計劃,讓前來Art Stage參觀的藝術愛好者更加了解台灣藝術家對於新媒體的創新詮釋與藝術表現能力。

  1. 「人的莊園」之錄像作品

本次「影像之聲」所展出的第一個創作計劃,為周慶輝「人的莊園」的錄像作品。去年,采泥藝術所展出的「人的莊園」攝影作品,獲得與會藏家、藝評家、策展人的極大肯定,獲得作品口碑與市場反應的雙贏,是為一次成功的展出。今年,采泥藝術則將Art Stage首次展出「人的莊園」之「錄像」作品系列,讓喜歡周慶輝作品的觀眾得以欣賞到「人的莊園」的完整內容。「人的莊園」之「錄像」作品發展自原攝影作品的九大主題內容,進而延伸出九支不同內容的錄像作品。每支錄像作品皆架設全新的道具與布景,搭配劇情腳本的書寫,以高畫質的影像美學,在唯美卻又詼諧、帶有諷刺的影像風格中,體現藝術家對於當下社會多元批判的觀點,雙向鋪陳了現代文明生活的浮華與困境。本次也將展出兩張「人的莊園」的攝影作品,透過攝影與錄像的雙重之聲營造更為深刻的感官共鳴,引領觀者對於當代生活所知所感進行深層的反省與思考。

  1. MimiLucy—BACK TO LIFE

由台灣備受矚目的新生代藝術家張暉明、廖祈羽所共同策劃的”MimiLucy”創作計劃,繼2009年推出的首發計劃「NEVER GIVE UP」後,推出嶄新第二章「BACK TO LIFE」。”MimiLucy”延續兩名虛構、電影角色般的人物 – Mimi與Lucy,並分別以科學家與少女的角色現身,展開一連串充滿神秘色彩的旅程。本展將透過單(雙)頻道錄像、複合裝置、數位攝影等創作形式,帶領觀者進入Mimi與Lucy一段引人疑竇又懸疑神秘的曖昧關係,以探究創作者在現實與虛擬的雙重關係,及影像在生活不可逆的現實中具有的可能性。

本展一方面提升台灣藝術與藝術家的能見度,同時增進國際的雙邊交流,強化藝術與文化的合作機會;另一方面,也利用此機會做為一個平台,提供台灣傑出藝術家更多的曝光機會,做為引薦台灣優秀的藝術創作者與藝術品給國際藝壇,爭取更多與國外機構合作的可能性,達成推廣臺灣優秀藝術創作者與藝術作品至國際藝術場域,開拓臺灣藝術更大的發展版圖與可能。

 [ About the Exhibition ] Chini Gallery will present The Voice of Video—New Media Art from Taiwan, which showcases the video works of the Animal Farm series by renowned Taiwanese artist, Ching-Hui CHOU, and the art project, Mimi Lucy—Back to Life, consisted of video, installation, and photography collaboratively created by rising young Taiwanese artists, Huei-Ming CHANG and Chi-Yu LIAO. The two specially selected new media projects will enable art lovers at Art Stage to further understand Taiwanese artists’ innovative interpretation and artistic expressiveness of new media.

  1.  Video Work of Animal Farm

The first project on view in The Voice of Video is the video work from Ching-Hui CHOU’s Animal Farm. Last year, Chini Gallery presented the photography exhibition of Animal Farm, which was highly well-received by collectors, art critics, and curators. The review of the artworks and the market reaction were both exceptionally positive. This year, Chini Gallery presents the video series of Animal Farm for the first time at Art Stage, giving audience that love CHOU’s work an opportunity to see the complete content of this project. The different contents of the project’s nine videos are developed from the nine major themes of the project’s photographic works. For each video, brand new props and sets were produced. Created with individual storylines and the aesthetics of high-resolution video, the video works convey the artist’s critical view on the diverse society in a visually pleasing yet humorous, satirical style, unveiling the glamor and dilemma of modern life. Two photographs of Animal Farm will also be on view this time. The dual voices of photography and video will achieve a stronger perceptual resonance, leading the audience to reflect on and re-examine what we know and feel about contemporary life.

  1. MimiLucy—BACK TO LIFE

The art project, MimiLucy, is created by two highly anticipated young Taiwanese artists, Huei-Ming CHANG and Chi-Yu LIAO. Since the project’s first chapter in 2009, NEVER GIVE UP, they have presented the second chapter, BACK TO LIFE. Following the former, the latter continues with two fictitious film characters, Mimi and Lucy, who appear as a scientist and a young girl in the work and commence a mysterious journey. With single-channel and two-channel videos, mixed media installation, and digital photography, the exhibition guides the audience to glimpse the suspicious, mysterious, and ambiguous relationship between Mimi and Lucy. It explores an artist’s dual relationship between the reality and the virtual world as well as the potentiality of video and image in the irreversible reality of life.

The exhibition enhances the visibility of Taiwanese art and artists, increases the exchange between Taiwan and the world, and strengthens artistic and cultural collaboration. Moreover, it also serves as a platform that offers outstanding Taiwanese artists a chance to gain more exposure, introducing talented Taiwanese artists and their works the international art scene. By doing so, it creates more collaboration opportunities between the artists and international institutions, and promotes excellent Taiwanese artists and artworks in the international art scene, expanding the territory and possibility of Taiwanese art.

About the Artists

周慶輝 CHOU Ching-Hui

生於1965年,畢業於世界新聞專科學校,退伍後進入媒體工作,之後並開啟了幾個窮年耗月的專題攝影計畫,包括:「停格的歲月—痲瘋村紀事」(現稱為「行過幽谷」)、「消失的群像—勞動者紀事」、「野想—黃羊川計劃」等。早期攝影作品以「報導攝影」風格為主,以紀實且帶有詩意的影像語言,傳達個人對於主題人物的觀點與想法。「人的莊園」為個人首度以「編導式攝影」方式進行的創作主題,透過精緻細膩且色彩飽滿的影像,結合超現實的景境氛圍,開創個人獨特的攝影語境。周慶輝曾先後榮獲了「自立報系台灣新聞年度攝影獎」、「映像與時代—中華民國國際攝影藝術大展」的「報導類銀牌獎」、「台北攝影節報導類特別獎」、「金鼎獎」等榮譽獎項。同時,周慶輝也以攝影藝術家的身份多次受邀參加國際攝影大展,包括:「廣州國際攝影雙年展」、「香港攝影節━四度空間—兩岸四地當代攝影展」、「首屆長江國際影像雙年展」、「2014台北雙年展」、「陌生的亞洲—北京國際攝影雙年展」等。周慶輝希望自己成為一位用相機說故事的人,「我想讓影像如文字般,本身就能敘述故事」,每個看過圖片的人,如同聽他說完故事一般,自影像中得到豐富的感受。

Born in 1965 following gradu

ation from Shih Hsin University, Chou devoted himself to both the efficiency-orientated news photography industry and to beginning several time-consuming specialists photography projects, including: Out of the Shadows, Vanishing Leagues: Images of Workers and Wild Aspirations: The Yellow Sheep River Project. His photographic works arise from social realities, and combine artistic representative techniques. Animal Farm was his first creative venture to make the switch from documentary photography to directed photography. Through delicately exquisite yet vibrantly colored images, he conjured a kind of hyper-real atmosphere, creating his own photographic language. Chou Ching-Hui has successively been awarded the Independence Post Group Annual Taiwan News Award, a silver medal in the Reportage category at the ROC International Photography Art Exhibition, the Taipei Photography Festival Reportage Photography Award Gold Medal among other honours, and has been invited to participate in international photography exhibitions many times. These include Sightings: Searching for the Truth – 2009 Guangzhou Photo Biennial Exhibition, Four Dimensions – Contemporary Photography from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan & Macau, The First Yangtze International Photography & Video Biennale, the 2014 Taipei Biennale and Unfamiliar Asia—The Second Beijing Photo Biennale. Chou Ching-Hui wishes to use his camera to tell stories. “I want to make images that, just like words, relate stories by their very nature.” He hopes that everyone who sees his pictures gains a rich feeling from the images, just as if they had heard him tell a story.
