「唯有發自內心地學習慈悲,而不只是無謂地活著、死去、養育後代、互相殘殺…我們才更能拉開人類與動物之間的差距。」

“Only by learning to be “compassionate” to the heart, rather than just living and dying, nurturing and killing, can we broaden the line which divides humans and animals. ”

—Tavira

About Artist 

Lourdes Salcedo Tavira (邵曉露)

為年輕西班牙藝術家,她的藝術細胞自小就展露無遺。多年來她一直用繪畫、塗鴉的方式來表現各種生命經驗引發的感受與情緒。

Tavira熱愛在藝術世界中自由表達想法。近年來,人與動物細微的差異引起她濃厚的興趣。觀察人類社會中角色分工的失序現象,並進而思索對於野生動物的木然無感,陌生異化的特質是否已在我們自己和他人心中生根?面臨恐懼與焦慮的威脅,自然在心中油然而生的原始獸性。在這複雜的社會中,我們的動物性是否反映了我們與社會的關係?而到何種程度?動物是我們「最近的遠親」,是世界上與我們最相近的物種。然而演化與成長是否扼殺了我們和動物間的明顯相異處?我們自身的存在與動物同胞之間的複雜性的確引人入勝,但我們該做的並不僅止於欣賞而已。

Tavira所用的鮮明色彩沉穩而有力,加上她獨特敏銳的藝術性對話,巧妙地呈現美與慈悲(因盼望而有喘息的空間)。她的藝術表現出「人/動物」之間時而野蠻的關係。

采泥藝術的Humanimal(野性的吶喊)展覽將帶您探索Tavira如何再現與質疑人類與其他物種間的關係;我們如何以個人的方式與牠們做聯繫?Tavira整合了繪畫與裝置作品,希望為觀眾營造一種趣味的看展方式。我們要重新審視「動物」如何作為人類的「他者」,才能捕捉我們的自然野性存在本質。Humanimal(動物-人)這自創的縮寫字有一體兩面的含義,我們人類大致上仍是動物。

Lourdes Salcedo Tavira is a young Spanish artist whose artistic creativity was sparked at an early age.  Over the years she has created a lot of drawings and sketches to depict her feelings and emotions from different life experiences.

Captivated by a world where she can freely express her thoughts, she recently has been fascinated by observing the thin line in the space which divides humans and animals, and a sense of disorder as to which part is played by whom in our society. Are we seeing all the heartless wild animal nature, strange and alien in ourselves—and others? To what extend might our own animal nature, which comes to the surface when confronted by fear and anxiety, reflect our relationships with our own diverse society? Animals are our “near abroad,” aspects of the world that are the closest to us as a species. However, have evolution and growth killed our significant existing differences from animals? Appreciating the complexity of our existence and our animal brethren is, of course, inviting. But more is required, too.

Tavira’s use of calm but powerful and vibrant colors, together with her unique and very sensitive artistic line of dialogue, skillfully convey beauty and compassion—a breathing space for hope—, in the art of showing the sometimes savage human/animal relationship.

The exhibition, Humanimal, at Chini gallery will explore how Tavira represents and questions our relationship with other species and how we connect with them in a personal way. She hopes to create a playful way of viewing her paintings through the integration with installations, to reevaluate the acknowledgment on how “the animal” has functioned as the other to “the human,” in order to capture the essence of our wild natural existence.

The Humanimal contraction is two sides of the same kind. And we humans are mostly animals, still.
