Venue 200 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102



In the upcoming exhibition Into View: New Voices, New Stories at Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, U.S.A., Cyano-Collage 024 will be presented. The exhibition features recently acquired paintings, sculptures, ceramics, prints, and mixed-media work by local and international contemporary artists who challenge and subvert convention by transforming familiar stories, stereotypes, and techniques. Other participating artists includes Artists: Koon Wai Bong, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Michael Jang & Barry McGee, Cathy Lu, Jiha Moon, Younhee Paik, Nicole Pun, Stephanie Syjuco, TT Takemoto, Wesley Tongson, Rupy C. Tut, and Jenifer K Wofford.


 Cyano-Collage 024 was the featured artwork in Wu Chi-Tsung’s solo exhibition presented by Galerie du Monde at Art Basel Hong Kong 2018, where it made its debut. In 2019, it was selected for exhibition when Wu Chi-Tsung was awarded the winner of the inaugural Liu Kuo-Sung Ink Art Award.


In 2021, upon acquiring the work, the Asian Art Museum organized an online event that allowed art lovers to learn more about the production process of the work and the artist behind it.

《氰山集之二十四》將在美國舊金山亞洲藝術博物館新展《展望:新聲音,新故事》中展出。該展覽呈現了最新納入博物館典藏的當代繪畫、雕塑、陶瓷、版畫和複合媒材作品,這些美國本土或國際藝術家通過改變熟悉的故事、刻板印象和技巧來挑戰和顛覆傳統。除吳季璁外,參展藝術家還有Koon Wai Bong, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Michael Jang & Barry McGee, Cathy Lu, Jiha Moon, Younhee Paik, Nicole Pun, Stephanie Syjuco, TT Takemoto, Wesley Tongson, Rupy C. Tut,以及Jenifer K Wofford。


這件作品是吳季璁首次嘗試單一底板的最大尺幅的創作,寬3.6公尺、高1.8公尺。他花費數月時間研究與實驗氰版相紙的拼接,力求呈現氣勢磅礴而富有詩意的畫面,畫面中近景的深藍與遠景黃棕色的氰版顏色對照令構圖更具縱深感。2018年巴塞爾藝術展香港展會期間,作品於世界畫廊舉辦的吳季璁個展中首次發表,並在2019年吳季璁榮獲首屆「劉國松水墨藝術大獎」之際再度亮相。


2021年,在舊金山亞洲藝術博物館典藏該作品之際,博物館特別為此舉辦了一場線上交流活動,邀請藝術家與美術館藏家及藝術愛好者分享製作過程與藝術理念。

Wu Chi-Tsung will ring in the new year with his participation in the group exhibition Living Paper, presented by Galerie du Monde and explores the diversity and versatility of paper as a medium, as well as its limitless potential for creating a visual dialogue.

Established in 1974, Galerie du Monde is hosting this exhibition as part of its 50th-anniversary celebration series. The exhibition is curated by Olivia Wang who is an art consultant, curator and writer, with a focus in contemporary Asian ink art, and features recent works from Wu Chi-Tsung’s Wrinkled Texture Series and Cyano-Collage Seriesalong with works from nine other Asian artists including Chiang Yomei, Fu Xiaotong, Hung Fai, Young-sé Lee, Ling Pui Sze, Ma Hui, Wai Pong-yu, Kelly Wang and Zheng Chongbin. The curator shares that “while the material enables artists to engage with their artistic traditions, the multivalence of the material itself lends itself to endless possibilities of exploration and creation. In the hands of this group of artists, paper becomes alive and comes into its own being.” 

Believing that interacting with materials and technology is a crucial part of art creation, Wu Chi-Tsung’s daily working routine revolves around paper: treating, crumbling, exposing, “washing,” reassembling, and, most importantly, experimenting. To the artist, xuan paper possesses the most complicated and sensitive qualities among all papers. With different manufacturing methods, it is capable of producing a wide range of delicate ink colors. “Through my work, I hope to bring more attention to xuan paper and contribute to the industry, allowing traditional Eastern media to breathe new life into the contemporary art world.”

吳季璁將參展香港世界畫廊群展《活紙》,為新年拉開序幕。世界畫廊成立於1974年,本展將開啟畫廊五十週年慶系列活動。展覽策展人汪鈴是一名藝術顧問、策展人與作者,她長期關注亞洲當代水墨領域。展覽將探索紙張作為媒介的多樣性和多功能性,以及創造視覺對話的無限潛力。吳季璁的《皴法習作》系列將與蔣友梅、傅小桐 、 熊輝 、 李隆世 、 凌佩詩 、 馬蕙 、 韋邦雨 、 王佳怡、鄭重賓等其他九位亞洲藝術家的作品共同呈現,深入探討紙張的豐富物質性和文化內涵。策展人分享道:「紙張作為媒材令藝術家能夠與他們的藝術傳統互動,而紙張本身的多重性質也為無窮的創新與多樣的創作提供了可能性。在這群藝術家的手中,紙張變得有生命且展現了自身的存在價值。」

吳季璁相信與材料和技術的互動是藝術創作中至關重要的一部分,他的日常工作幾乎圍繞著「紙」展開:施加藥劑、揉皺、曬紙、「洗紙」、組合,以及無數次的實驗。他認為宣紙擁有其他紙張無法比擬的豐富性和敏感性。透過不同的處理方法,它們能夠呈現極其細膩的墨色變化。「透過我的作品,我希望更多的人能夠注意到宣紙,同時也期待這個傳統的東方媒介在當代藝術世界中焕發新生。」

Dates July 9 -October 1, 2023

Venue 134 Jay Street, Katonah, NY 10536


The Katonah Museum of Art (KMA) presents Wu Chi-Tsung: Synchronicity, which marks Chi-Tsung’s first solo museum exhibition. The exhibition will focus on the artist’s most recent body of work, his Cyano-Collage Series, that seamlessly incorporates Eastern aesthetics with collage and photographic processes to create sublime reinterpretations of traditional Chinese Shan Shui (mountain-water) landscape paintings. A meditative video installation in the main galleries and an immersive installation in the project gallery will provide further examples of Wu’s diverse and innovative practice. On July 9, Wu Chi-Tsung will join KMA Executive Director Michelle Yin Mapplethorpe for an in-depth discussion on his dynamic and interdisciplinary practice. 

The Katonah Museum of Art is a non-collecting institution geared towards visual arts, located in Katonah, New York. From its inception, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the Museum. 

In November, after the successful closing of his first institutional solo show in the US at the Katonah Museum of Art, Wu Chi-Tsung has donated his Cyano-Collage 179 to the Katonah museum for its annual live benefit auction that supports for the Museum’s acclaimed exhibitions, educational programs, and forward-thinking initiatives.

卡托納美術館(KMA)呈獻「吳季璁:Synchronicity」,這標誌了吳季璁的首次美術館個展。本次展覽將聚焦於吳季璁的《氰山集》系列新作,介紹藝術家將東方美學與拼貼、攝影技術進行無縫接合的創作方式,從而呈現藝術家對於傳統中國書畫進行的突破性的再詮釋。此外,展覽還將展出《煙林圖系列》等沈浸式影像裝置,呈現吳季璁多樣而創新的藝術實踐。7月9日,吳季璁將與美術館館長Michelle Yin Mapplethorpe進行對談,分享其充滿活力的跨學科創作。

卡托納美術館是位於紐約州卡托納的一個以視覺藝術為主的藝術機構。從成立之初,KMA 就致力於呈現來自各種文化和時期的傑出藝術。其非收藏機構的特性也令美術館充滿活力、擁有靈活的展覽計劃,是該博物館最獨特的亮點之一。

十一月,在卡托納美術館個展順利閉幕後,吳季璁將《氰山集之一百七十九》捐贈給該博物館,作為其年度現場慈善拍賣的拍品。這項拍賣活動旨在支持博物館的優秀展覽、教育計劃和前瞻性活動。

This week, video installation Dust 002  alongside with new works from the Cyano-Collage Series will be presented at Sean Kelly Gallery’s booth at  Art Basel Unlimited, Art Basel’s pioneering exhibition platform for projects that transcend the classical art fair stand, including large-scale sculptures and paintings, video projections, installations, and live performances.


The Dust was initially created and debuted during Wu Chi-Tsung’s residency at in 2006, which marked his first solo exhibition in an art institution in the United Kindoms. Since then, the work has been exhibited in Germany, Luxembourg and the U.S.. It features a real-time streaming of the reflection of the circulation of dust particles moving in the room. As viewers progress through the space, disrupting the flow of air, the images of flickering dust change constantly and instantaneously creating a captivating relationship between artist and viewer, technology, and chance. Dust not only reorients us to the small beauties of the world but demonstrates our fundamental inability to perceive these phenomena without, in turn, affecting them.

2006年,《灰塵》由吳季璁在塞特藝廊的駐留期間創作並首次展出,並在此後於德國、盧森堡和美國展出。它捕捉了塵埃於空間中的遊移並將其實時投影於銀幕。當觀者穿越空間,干擾空氣流動時,閃爍的塵埃影像會不斷地變化,創造一種藝術家和觀眾、技術和機會之間迷人的關係。《塵埃》不僅重新導向我們關注世界上細微而美麗的事物,也向我們揭示了我們本質上無法在不影響這些事物的條件下感知它們。

Recently, Wu Chi-Tsung debuted his new work series, the Calligraphy Series, at 2023 Hengshan Calligraphy Biennial. Co-organized by Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts and Hengshan Calligraphy Art Center and co-curated by Wu Chao Jen Philip and Chen I Tso, the inaugural biennial, titled “Era of Principle and No Principle Interwoven”,  is centered on the development and future prospect of Chinese Calligraphy in the context of contemporary art.

‘In this video, a length of a paper is attached to a modified treadmill. After turning the treadmill on, Wu uses a brush to write on the moving paper. As he attempts to transcribe the famous Letter of Loss and Confusion ( Mil Whi) by Wang Xizhi, the speed of the paper’s motion makes writing futile as all characters turn out to be entirely illegible. The speed of the treadmill represents the rapid changes in the spatiotemporal setting. Not only is the brush unable to cope with the circumstances, but it is also incapable to engage in a meaningful conversation with the paper. ‘ (Quoted from curatorial statement by Hengshan Calligraphy Art Center)

吳季璁新作《書法習作》於首屆橫山書藝雙年展發表。本作是吳季璁特別為本此展覽的新創作品。雙年展由桃園市立美術館與橫山書法藝術館合辦,由策展人吳超然、機構策展人陳俋佐共同企劃,以《法與無法交織的年代─書法作為一種視覺形式》為主題,聚焦當代藝術語境下書法藝術的未來。

「本作是吳季璁特別為本此展覽的新創作品。在這件錄像中,他在改裝的跑步機上貼上一張紙,啟動跑步機後,用毛筆在滾動中的紙上書寫。他企圖臨摹王義之的《喪亂帖》,但因為速度的開係,最終無法成宇。這個創作中跑步機的速度指涉了時空環境下的轉變,毛筆不僅雞以帤駁,更無法和紙張產生有意義的對話。」(節選自橫山書法藝術館策展論述)

Summoning Memories: Art Beyond Chinese Traditions
Exhibition Period 
February 10, 2023 – July 2, 2023
Venue 1370 Southmore Blvd. Houston, TX


Wrinkled Texture 113 is featured in Asia Society Huston’s recent group exhibition “Summoning Memories: Art Beyond Chinese Traditions”. Curated by guest curator Dr. Susan L. Beningson, the exhibition highlights works by over 30 contemporary artists of Chinese descent who reinterpret traditions in dynamic and innovative ways.  Across painting, sculpture, and photography, these works were created by both established and emerging artists of different generations who use experimentation to draw on both Eastern and Western art-making practices and materials.The Asia Society’s is a global non-profit organization whose purpose is to navigate shared futures for Asia and the world across policy, arts and culture, education, sustainability, business, and technology.


Curator Susan L. Beningson stated, In his Cyano-Collage series, Wu Chi-Tsung explores the essence of Chinese ink landscape painting, moving beyond the brush to utilize innovative new materials and techniques. To create these evocative landscapes, Wu prepares layers of cyanotype photographic papers, a method used since the mid-1800s. He treats the xuan paper, the material used in traditional Chinese ink landscapes, with a photosensitive coating. The multiple pieces of paper are crumpled, exposed to sunlight, and then mounted into collaged images that resemble the craggy mountain peaks of traditional Chinese ink shan shui (mountain and water) landscape painting – thus creating ink landscapes without the ink. Wu replaces the traditional materials of ink and brush with experimental photography in order to reinvent the process. Wu has said that his landscapes resist any fixed reading: “They could be anything, because they are not representing any real landscape. This is the spirit of a Chinese landscape.. The best works always come from some kind of coincidence… Most artists have a strong ego. We try to control our work. But the more you try to control it, the more likely you lose the possibility. Let the work grow in the way it should.”




召喚記憶:超越傳統的中國當代藝術
日期  2023年2月10日至7月2日
地點 1370 Southmore Blvd. Houston, TX


皴法習作113》正於亞洲協會休士頓分會最近的群展《召喚記憶:超越中國傳統的藝術》中展出。本展由客座策展人Susan L. Beningson博士策劃,集中呈現了三十餘位華裔藝術家的當代藝術作品。作品涵蓋繪畫、雕塑、攝影等類別,均實驗著結合東方與西方的藝術傳統與材料,以創新的方式重新詮釋著傳統。亞洲協會總部位於紐約,是美國一個非牟利組織,創辦宗旨是向世界傳播亞洲文化。

策展人Susan L. Beningson介紹道,「在《氰山集》系列中,吳季璁探索了中國水墨山水畫的本質,運用創新的材料和技術超越了傳統筆觸。為了創造這些意境深遠的山水畫,他使用光敏劑處理宣紙,這是傳統中國水墨山水畫所使用的材料。這些宣紙被揉皺,曝露在陽光下,然後拼貼成山峰嶙峋的山水圖像,與傳統中國水墨山水畫頗為神似。吳季璁用實驗攝影取代了傳統的墨水和筆觸,他不用墨水便創造出了水墨山水對傳統書畫進行了當代的重新詮釋。藝術家表示,他的山水畫抵抗任何固定的解讀『它們可以是任何東西,因為它們不代表任何真實的風景。這就是中國山水畫的精神。最好的作品總是來自某種隨機性…大多數藝術家都有很強的自我。我們試圖控制自己的作品。但是你越想控制它,你就越有可能失去可能性。讓作品按照它應有的方式成長』。」

The work is constructed of numerous transparent plastic boxes whose shadows resemble geometrical skyscrapers when a moving light casted on. The ordinary materials used in this artwork remind viewers of the realistic world; however, it leads people to a further imaginary scene. Chi-Tsung introduces, “there is another invisible world in which we live every day. It is made up of electronic equipment, programs, networks, media and information, and I call it ‘Crystal City’… It is becoming our new spiritual home in the contemporary world”

作品由若干透明的塑膠盒子組成,在移動光源的照射下,其投影仿若城市中的摩天大樓。在這裡,塑膠盒廉價的工業材料提示著現實世界,而投影的世界則將人帶入想像的疆界。季璁介紹稱,「有另一個不可見的世界,但我們每日生活其中,它是由電子設備、程式、網絡、媒體、訊息所構築,我稱之為《水晶城市》⋯⋯那裡是我們精神的寓所。」

Presented by Galerie du Monde, Wu Chi-Tsung’s new works will be shown at the inaugural edition of Art SG. Founded by The Art Assembly, an affiliation of major international art fairs with a particular focus on the Asia Pacific region comprising Taipei Dangdai, India Art Fair, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai and the forthcoming Tokyo Gendai, the new international art fair will feature over 150 of the world’s leading galleries, from Singapore and across the globe. Art SG offers a meeting point in Southeast Asia for collectors from the region and beyond to convene and engage with one of the world’s most dynamic cultural landscapes.

Among the new works from the Cyano-Collage Series and the Wrinkled Texture Series specially created for the new fair, it is noteworthy that the Wrinkled Texture – Folding Screen 002 marks the artist’s first attempt to compose on a traditional folding screen. The series applies the classic cyanotype technique to xuan paper. During this process, the artist treats xuan paper with a photosensitive coating that is then crumpled and exposed to sunlight, revealing images that bring to mind the mountainous landscapes often found in Chinese shan shui paintings. Folding Screen 002 was created amidst continuous rain where light, the key catalyst, was insufficient. The artist adjusted the exposure under the low light conditions and eventually achieved the delicate and subtle palette seen in this work.

本週,世界畫廊將攜吳季璁《氰山集》及《皴法習作》系列新作亮相首屆新加坡國際藝術博覽會(Art SG)。藝博會由旗下包括台北當代、印度藝術博覽會、影像上海藝術博覽會及東京現代等國際藝博會的The Art Assembly聯手瑞銀集團呈現,將匯聚來自全球30個地區逾150間全球頂級世界畫廊,為東南亞及世界各地的藏家提供了齊聚一堂的機會,共賞世界上最有活力的文化景觀。

本次值得注目的新作《皴法習作 屏風之二》是吳季璁首次嘗試於大尺幅日式屏風上進行創作。該系列作品使用氰版攝影法之原理,將感光材料塗佈於宣紙上,在陽光下曝曬,過程中不斷調整重塑紙張的皺折,而後水洗定影而形成宛若山巒般的「筆觸」,對於光照有著相當敏感的需求。而本次製作過程中,藝術家在陰雨連綿、光線不足的條件下摸索曝光技巧,最終呈現出淡雅細膩而幽微的色調。

Para Site’s 2022 Fundraising Auction has come to a fruitful end. Together with Galerie du Monde, Wu Chi-Tsung has donated his Wrinkled Texture 127 to the auction, whose proceeds will directly support our exhibitions, programmes, and educational initiatives. The auction also features artworks by renowned international artists such as John Armleder, Antony Gormley, Qiu Zhijie, and Zhao Gang.


Para Site is Hong Kong’s leading contemporary art centre and one of the oldest and most active independent art institutions in Asia. It produces exhibitions, publications, discursive, and educational projects aimed at forging a critical understanding of local and international phenomena in art and society. 


Wu Chi-Tsung began the Wrinkled Texture series with the intention to reinterpret the traditional texturing method called cun fa in traditional Chinese landscape painting. Instead of using ink and brush, Wuemploys the classical photographic technique cyanotype, to render the textures.


香港Para Site藝術空間的2022年籌款拍賣會於近日圓滿落幕,其中,吳季璁聯手世界畫廊捐贈了《皴法習作之一百二十七》,其拍賣所得將用於支持藝術空間的展覽、公共項目及教育活動。本次拍賣會還展出John Armleder、Antony Gormley、邱志傑、趙剛等國際知名藝術家作品。


Para Site是香港領先的當代藝術中心,亦是亞洲地區歷史最悠久、最活躍的獨立藝術機構之一,致力於推出展覽、出版、研討會與教育項目,提出對本土與國際藝術及社會生態的批判性思考。吳季璁的《皴法習作》系列意在重新詮釋中國傳統水墨畫中的皴法,其中,他使用氰版攝影技術取代筆墨,呈現出山石般的紋理。

Venue Park Avenue Armory, New York



Sean Kelly Gallery will present Wu Chi-Tsung Solo Presentation at the ADAA Art Show in New York as the artist’s debut at the Art Show.

Founded in 1962, ADAA is a national non-profit membership organization of art galleries that promotes the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship, and ethical practice in the industry. In the classical and elegant neo-Gothic building of the Park Avenue Armory, the exhibition will feature works of art from the Renaissance to the present, including oil paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and photographs.

The Art Show is distinctive for its focus on solo exhibitions since its inception, allowing galleries to present a comprehensive overview of an artist’s career and explore their aesthetic connotations. This year, 55 of the 78 participating galleries will present solo exhibitions of artists.

This is why Chi-Tsung is particularly looking forward to this solo exhibition. With a historical anchor crossing from the classic to the present, as well as the refined and sophisticated aesthetic taste, ADAA’s focus is in alignment with Chi-Tsung’s professional training and artistic pursuit, where he was trained in the traditions of calligraphy, ink painting, watercolor painting and drawing at a young age, and reflects these time-honored idioms in his contemporary practices. 

With new works from the Cyano-Collage Series and a work from the Still Life Series, the solo aims to reveal how Chi-Tsung’s work reflects “the influence of traditional aesthetics in his contemporary works, and at the same time critically consider how the development of media and technology affect the relationship between people and the world.

Artnet featured Wu’s work as one of the 7 must-see works to seek out at the ADDA Art Show. As described by editor Eileen Kinsella, “So much goes into the creation of Wu Chi-Tsung’s meditative, serenity-inducting Cyano-Collages, such as this giant fan-shaped one, which anchored the works in the solo presentation of the booth, created specifically for the show.”

ADAA成立於1962年,是全美藝術畫廊間的會員組織,旨在促進行業內鑒賞、學術間的交流。自1988年起,協會每年於紐約舉辦ADAA藝術展。在公園大道軍械庫古典而優雅的新哥特式建築中,藝術展將匯集文藝復興時期至今的油畫、雕塑、版畫、素描、攝影等各個類別藝術作品,並從建立之初便形成了以匯集藝術家個展呈現為特色,從而令畫廊得以全面介紹藝術家職業生涯、深度挖掘其美學內涵,本屆78間參展畫廊中的55間都將以藝術家個展形式呈現。

藝術展含跨古今的視野與經典而優雅的美學品味,與吳季璁的藝術養成與創作思考不謀而合,也令他格外期待本次個展,並為其特意創作了多件《氰山集》系列新作,同時《小品》系列作品也將展出,藉此細緻介紹自幼接受東方書畫的吳季璁如何在當代實驗影像與復合媒材的創作中呈現傳統美學之薰陶,並對於媒介與技術發展如何影響人與世界的關係進行批判性思考。

Artnet將《氰山集》系列新作評為“ADAA藝術展中最不容錯過的7件作品”之一,編輯Eileen Kinsella介紹道,「吳季璁那靜謐而令人沈醉的氰山集中蘊含了豐富無比的世界,特別是那件藝術家專門為本次個展創作的巨大的扇形作品」。

Venue Via San Domenico, 11 10122 Torino Italia

Invited by Davide Quadrio, curator of the exhibition who is renowned for working closely in the East Asian art scene over decades, Wu Chi-Tsung’s Drawing Study Series will be presented at Buddha10: A Fragmented display on Buddhist visual evolution at MAO – Museo d’Arte Orientale di Torino (Museum of Eastern Art). 


The MAO exhibition will feature collections from different geographical areas and expand through a wide chronological period in the museum’s collection, among which Buddhist sculptures from the Chinese collection will be the highlight, with the aim to offer different perspectives and reflections on the museum and its proud collection of Asian art. The antiques will be echoed by a number of contemporary art practices and new works including the Drawing Study Series. The series originated in 2021 inspired by Chi-Tsung’s collaboration with TAO ART SPACE for his solo exhibition in Taipei, in which he uses a flashlight as a paintbrush to capture the silhouette of ancient Buddhist statues and records the tails of light in space, allowing the outlines of the statues to gradually appear. The gentle movement and the dim glow have created a yūgenism (profound grace and subtlety) atmosphere, symphonizing the timeless quality of the statues that were created centuries ago.

本次展覽中,策展人從博物館引以為豪的亞洲藝術收藏中精選出來自不同地域、跨越古今的展品,並同時展示與之呼應的當代藝術作品,旨在為亞洲藝術史提供新穎的解讀視角與反思,此觀念與《寫生習作》的創作初衷不謀而合。《寫生習作》佛像系列起源於2021年吳季璁與台北藝術空間TAO ART SPACE的合作,他用手電筒作為畫筆,捕捉古代雕塑的輪廓,記錄空間中的光跡,輕柔的光線緩緩照亮昏暗的佛像,使其輪廓逐漸顯現,創造了一種幽玄的氛圍,映照出佛像幾個世紀以來的永恒與靜謐。

This June, the first Cyano-Collage Series created on a bronze panel will be exhibited at Sean Kelly Gallery’s booth which marks Wu Chi-Tsung’s debut in Art Basel in Basel. As the development of the series, the artist has experimentally worked with aluminum panels in 2021 and bronze panels this year as a substitute for wooden baseboards to achieve better durability of the works. The metal quality of the baseboard creates a distinct reflection that leaks through the Cyano-Collage landscape and broadens the potential of the series.

《Santa Barbara Independent》展評:視覺藝術家們為聖塔芭芭拉帶來思維挑戰

still life series
 Still Life 014 — Yellow Mai Flower, 《小品之十四 黃梅》,2020, 6 min 55 sec
Acquired by Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Still Life 012 – Buttercup Tree and Still Life 014 – Yellow Mai Flower, both acquired by Santa Barbara Museum of Art, are now on view in the group exhibition Mediated Nature of the museum till December. In an exhibition review in Santa Barbara Independent, it is stated that  the works have “challenged our media consumption habits at a different level.” 


“Chi-Tsung enacts a faux-pas in an entertainment landscape where plants are mere mute extras meant to signify exoticism. His shots linger on a stationary plant for more than six minutes. In his work, the medium of video is camouflaged as painting. Although celebrating the mundane can be an oversubscribed concept, the elaborate care in Chi-Tsung’s work — the crispness of the colors, the subtle mist-like atmosphere enveloping the plants — bends time. The viewer wonders, ‘Have I been watching this flower for six minutes or 20’?


When the medium changes, so does the message. Chi-Tsung’s “Still Life 012 — Buttercup Tree” carves new depths within our experience of mundanity. A shivering leaf becomes a noteworthy event, and mist traveling slowly along a plant’s wet roots becomes an erotic experience.”






Still Life
Still Life 012 – Buttercup Tree,《小品之十二彎子木》, 00;06;58, 2019


吳季璁的兩件錄像作品《小品之十二 彎子木》和《小品之十四 黃梅》被美國聖塔巴巴拉美術館收藏,並將於美術館群展《媒介化的自然》中展出至十二月。當地媒體《Santa Barbara Independent》對該展覽的展評稱《小品》系列影像作品從不同角度挑戰了人們的媒介使用習慣。


「他戲謔般地設置出了一個人工造景,身處其中的植物不過是無聲渲染著東方情懷的臨時演員,鏡頭就這樣在靜止的植物上停留了六分鐘有餘。在這間作品中,影像媒介被偽裝成了繪畫。雖然作品也許並未刻意落腳於對於平凡的讚美,但是其中卻充滿著精緻的細節,那清晰的色彩、籠罩著植物的氤氳煙霧均模糊了時間的概念。令觀眾不僅疑惑,『我看了這朵花多長時間了?是6分鐘還是20分鐘?』


當媒介改變時,其傳遞的信息也隨之改變。季璁的《小品之十二 彎子木》為我們的日常經驗帶來新的感知可能:一片顫抖的樹葉成為令人注目的焦點,而沿著植物的濕潤根部慢慢遊移的水霧則為畫面增添了調情意味的氛圍。」

Financial Times Features: Something in the Water — the Rise of Aquatic Art
《金融時報》報道:水中物——當藝術聚焦於「水」

In a recent article featuring the rise of water-themed art in the Financial Times, Wu Chi-Tsung’s Cyano-Collage Series was introduced in detail as a supporting argument for the potential cultural and philosophical depth of Art of this theme. 


It was stated that Wu Chi-Tsung didn’t originally intend his cyanotypes to be about water. He began the works with mountains in mind, but soon saw that his photographic blue spaces resembled tumultuous waves. As the series grew he began to explore ways the works could be interpreted as traditional Shanshui paintings, ocean views and natural landscapes. 


Chi-Tsung shares that “I was thinking I could try the possibilities of combining earlier techniques and materials, and hoping I could work with Xuan paper.” Regarding the production process that is direct and analogue, “I’m basically like a farmer,” he laughs, “it’s physical. I crumble the paper, I feel the paper. When the humidity is different it affects the paper. If it’s drier, it’s harder. If it’s more humid, it’s softer. There are lots of coincidences that I cannot control. That’s the best part.” 

The writer continued to state that the results are abstract but appear like seascapes. “I cannot say if [the work] is concrete or abstract,” Wu adds. “Chinese landscapes never really represent specific mountains. An artist draws their own interpretation of the scene.” Chi-Tsung’s works are growing ever larger: his recent show at Sean Kelly in New York included a triptych of pieces reaching up to 9m high. The works also reflect the artist’s love of rock climbing in Taipei – “facing a giant wall every day and a sea wave just behind me”. Similarly, his aim is to immerse the viewer in the space.






在《金融時報》近期一篇關於聚焦於「水」的當代藝術的報道中,《氰山集》系列被詳盡介紹以表現該主題作品在文化廣度與哲學深度上的潛力。


報道中介紹道,《氰山集》系列的最初靈感來源於山景而非水景,但藝術家很快就意識到作品的藍色畫面亦形似波濤洶湧的海浪。隨著系列的發展,他挖掘出其多樣解讀的可能性:它們既可以是一幅山水畫、海景也可能是其他自然風景。


吳季璁分享道,「我想嘗試結合早期的技術與材料,並希望能夠使用宣紙來創作」。而談及其直接而手動的創作過程——而談及他在戶外,與化學藥劑與紫外線共同創作的過程——「我就像一個農民」,他笑著說。他創造性地在宣紙塗佈感光藥劑,將其揉皺後曝光兩小時,再將每張相紙在水中清洗,清洗時長取決於他期望達到的效果,最長可達一小時。「這是個物理性的過程。在揉皺紙張時,我能夠感知到它們的狀態。紙張在不同的濕度下會呈現不同質感,在乾燥氣候中會偏硬、空氣潮濕時則柔軟。(製作過程)充滿了偶然與巧合,是我無從控制的,而這正是最有趣的部分」。


作者評論稱這些作品是抽象的,但看起來又仿若海景。「我不願斷言(作品)是具體的還是抽象的」,季璁補充說,「傳統山水畫從來不描繪具體的山,(它們只是)藝術家對於風景的個人性的欣賞與解讀」。季璁在不斷挑戰作品的尺幅,在他最近於紐約尚凱利畫廊舉辦的個展中,最大的一幅寬達9米。對他而言,創作這件作品的體驗與他熱愛的攀岩是相通的,都是「每天面對一堵巨墻,身後就是海浪」。他希望觀眾在欣賞作品時也能夠擁有同樣的沉浸體驗。
