美丽的威海:“她的名字·存在”

毕可燕, 倪芙瑞莲,李笑男,闫平,李辉香,林耀明,王宝菊,佟玉洁

我刚从美丽的威海回来,这是一年半以来我第一次去北京之外的地方旅行。

 

我很高兴能参加这次“她的名字-存在”国际女艺术家邀请展,这是半岛美术馆该系列的第二回展,特别邀请知名当代艺术从业者参与……正好这一次都是女性艺术家。

她的名字·存在——威海市半岛美术馆

展览将持续至2021年10月22日

艺术从业者与学者们在半岛美术馆咖啡厅举办小组研讨会

见到很多知名艺术家同行,我真是太高兴了,比如闫平、毕可燕、林耀明、王宝菊等,还有学术主持李笑男和学术艺术作家佟玉洁。

遗憾的是,策展人郭桢目前仍在美国,此外艺术家黄佳和安娜·卡基米娜未能成行。非常感谢半岛美术馆馆长李辉香和各位敬业的工作人员,宁宁和王谦(音)为我们呈现了一个可以探索一系列有趣艺术品的美妙空间,并制作了一份令人印象深刻的画册。

双生•舞 “清澈的牛奶系列”布面油画 50×50厘米.  倪芙瑞莲 2013

 

 

我在威海半岛美术馆展出了12幅我的肖像作品。

 

通过对数码变形进行加工,在画布上编辑和重新排列这些变形,邀请每个人重新审视那些我们自认为已经很熟悉的人。我们生活在一个需要从各个角度来看自己的时代。已故的格雷戈里·贝特森(Gregory Bateson)是一位深刻的系统思想家,他喜欢从不同的角度看待一件事,不断变换,以免陷入单一思维方式。 “连接的模式”是他致力一生的工作。他一心想要弄明白人类为什么经常以破坏自然生态系统的方式行事。

他提出一系列有关整体结构的问题,比如它如何运作,怎么起作用,关系是什么,它如何学习、思考,怎样相互作用等等。在全球文化中、在教育体系中,如果我们不去寻找连接的模式,我们很可能会打破它,贝特森说,当这种情况发生时“你必然会破坏所有的品质。” 重新解读我们如何感知与理解摆在眼前的东西,运用数码变形,在画布上改变、选择和重新布置,这就是我们必须做出的努力,与我们自身一起,为许许多多子孙后代创造一个安全的具有快速恢复力的星球。

 

在她眼中F&E布面丙烯 100×100厘米. 倪芙瑞莲 2019

新世纪 EL布面丙烯 100×100厘米. 倪芙瑞莲 2019

木版鉴赏家 CC布面丙烯 100×100厘米.  倪芙瑞莲 2019

 

在威海展出的肖像画人物包括我的朋友们、艺术家同行、策展人、家人和学生。在这些肖像中,只有一个人我并不认识,画的是反战诗人英格伯格·巴赫曼(Ingeborg Bachmann,1926-1973)在少女时代,这是为红门画廊2018年一个特别展览“延缓的时间”而作。

摆渡人 DC布面丙烯 50×50厘米. 倪芙瑞莲 2019

Yan Ping 闫平

闫平是一位著名的中国艺术家,她不仅以其女性主义艺术和对20世纪90年代女性身体的借鉴为人所知,而且以其标志性的舞蹈与表演艺术作品而闻名。我曾在一个画册里看过一幅画,知道只有受过训练的舞者才能作出这样的姿势,据说她早年接受过芭蕾舞训练。(我对舞者的生活略知一二,因为在90年代初我在英国坎特伯雷的马洛剧院(Marlowe Theater)为沙德勒之井(Sadlers Wells)和波修瓦(the Bolshoi)等芭蕾舞团做过晚间服装助理。)

Guo Zhen  郭桢

 

我第一次见到艺术家/策展人郭桢是在2018年,在宋庄等一辆中巴车送我们去山东无棣参加雕塑驻地项目。郭桢以其创作的女性乳房大型纺织装置而闻名。
