Giuseppe Fed to his Dogs 朗世寧餵狗
In this show by Peter Ullstrom and Leah Gallant, site is treated as both uniform and shaped by particular social histories.
What if a place could make an image as much as the artist in it? Posing this questions in geographic proximity to Gutai, the Japanese avant-garde movement in which the act of making art was viewed as a collaboration between artist and material, Leah Gallant plays a series of games combining video and drawing with place as material. Escalators, sweat, watches, knives, dragonfruit skins, printed video stills, and the artist’s hands in motion recur across medium in a series of sites within walking distance of the exhibition space.
In photographs Peter Ullstrom produces digital images; provisional sketches made in the studio and afield. The assembly of work reflects on the photographic, that is, the medium of automatic pictorial space. In photography, the artist utilizes modes of abstract and concrete memory, particularly, in relation to colour, architecture, and social life.
在本次駐村藝術家Peter Ullstrom與Leah Gallant兩人的聯展中,展場反映著一致性,且是由特定的社會歷史所塑造而成。
假若一個空間能夠像藝術家一樣自行形塑影像,會發生什麼事呢?Leah Gallant向具有地理鄰近性的「具體派」提出這個疑惑。「具體派」是將藝術家與材料的合作視為藝術創作的日本前衛運動。Leah Gallant以錄像結合系列遊戲及塗鴉作為媒材:電梯、汗水、手錶、刀刃、火龍果皮、錄像靜物,另外還有藝術家的手部運動在展場中步履能及的幾個駐點之間徘徊。
作為畫面攝影家,Peter Ullstrom所製作的數位影像,還有在工作室所繪製與攝影相應的速寫草圖,都與顏色、建築和群眾的互動相關聯。藝術家利用攝影的描繪性及抽象性探索社會製造的具體概念模型。
