A lone tree stands shrouded in fog. The scene has a mysterious effect on the viewer: it is nostalgic, seeming to call up memories from the distant past, though leaving us with the feeling that we have never seen it before.

In this work, Wu seeks to fuse the techniques of traditional Western painting with those of Eastern painting. Western landscape painting, which relies on perspective, and East Asian painting, which cannot capture a subject through visual analysis and composition alone, may appear to be diametrically opposed in essence, but this video work fuses the two without any clear sense of the boundary that ought to separate them. The viewer can sense the latent commonalities and connections between different cultures, but at the same time, is made aware of the degree to which biases and preconceptions affect our visual perceptions. What our eyes perceived as a scene of sublime beauty from the vast natural world is actually a small bonsai tree amid artificially generated mist. Here, the boundary separating natural from artificial becomes as indistinct as that between East and West.

Wu Chi-Tsung

Born in 1981, in Taipei, Taiwan, where he now lives and works. Studied painting and sculpture at the Department of Fine Arts, Taipei National University of the Arts. He participated in numerous group exhibitions including at “Roppongi Art Night 2015″ (Tokyo, Japan) in 2015. Solo exhibitions at the IT Park Gallery (Taipei, Taiwan) in 2004 and 2009, the CFCCA (Manchester, UK) in 2013, the Site gallery, (Sheffield, UK) in 2014 and others. He received the Taipei Arts Award in 2003 and the Award of Critics and Editors of Art Magazines (“WRO Media Art Biannual”, Wroclaw, Poland) in 2013.

 

霧の中に立つ一本の木。遠い記憶を呼び起こすような懐かしい景色のようであり、初めて目にした風景でもあるかのような不思議な感覚を抱かせます。
ウーがこの作品を通して試みようとしたのは、伝統的な西洋絵画と東洋絵画の融合です。遠近法を用いる西洋の風景画と、対象を構図のみでは捉えない東洋的絵画の本質は対極に位置するようにも思えますが、両者を融合させた映像の中にその境界線を見出すことはできません。異なる文化の潜在的な共通点や繋がりを感じるとともに、先入観や思い込みがいかに視覚に影響を及ぼしているのかという事実にも気づかされます。雄大で美しい自然の景色と眼が捉えたものは、実は人工的に発生させた霧と小さな盆栽です。自然と人工物の境界もまた、東洋と西洋の境界のように曖昧になっていきます。

Eleonora Duse Theatre in Asolo, Italy

Close to the internationally contemporary art city Venice, the mountain town Asolo in the Northern Italy holds Asolo Art Film Festival, the oldest art film festival in the world. Founded in 1973, this film festival is famed for its special feature of Art and Artists’ Biographies. The ancient Asolo inspired the Old Masters such as Giorgione, Andrea Palladio, Paolo Veronese, Antonio Canova with its Arcadian paysage. As Venice Biennale is always the spotlight of contemporary art, the annual Asolo Art Film Festival is the conflux of art video creativeness and interdisciplinary art energies, as well as the encouragements of young video artists and the achievements of international cultural exchanges. The 34th edition of Asolo Art Film Festival will take place from October 30 till November 7 in 2015. The focal theme will be “BRICS Art”, including the curatorial projects of art films and performances from Brazil, Russia, India, China, Brazil and South Africa. The Taiwanese curator Yunnia Yang is invited by the 34th Asolo Art Film Festival with her curatorial projects-TAIWAN VIDEAThe Taiwanese Avant-Garde Video exhibition,Imagining CrisisThe International Creative Video Exhibition. The former infuses the features of criticism, originality and diversity from the Taiwanese video art and experimental videos. These 13 videos have been awarded in the national and international film festivals, including video art, performance art, experimental videos, experimental animations, digital animations, MV animations, etc. The artists Tsui Kuang-Yu, Pu Shuai-Cheng, Wu Tzu-An, Wang Ding-Yeh, Zhang Xu Zhan, Wang Deng-Yu, Rau Kao, Chang Huei-Ming, Chen I-Chun, Wu Chi-Tsung, Chiang Iuan-Hau, Christian Rizzo, Huang Zan-Lun, and Ho Wei-Ming will subvert viewers’ given impressions on the Taiwanese culture and arts, crossing over the boundaries between fine art and popular culture. The issues of TAIWAN VIDEAare only concerned about Taiwan, but also about the globally contemporary situations. The universal values of creative thinking are the fundamentals of avant-garde images with subversive strengths. Imagining Crisis explores the origins of creativity ( death instincts, imagination about crisis ), the mutual influences between them and the contemporary survival crises, and the representations of multimedia related to the above-mentioned subjects, which interest Asolo Art Film Festival most. Since 2014, Imagining Crisishas toured around MOCA Taipei, and the contemporary art institutions in Poland, Serbia, Bulgaria and Colombia.

Exhibited at Suzu 2017: Oku-Noto Triennale, Japan. This display is set in a warehouse for repairing nets used in the local fishing industry. A large screen is suspended from ceiling to floor in this vast space; behind the screen hang artworks created from items left in the warehouse, along with fishing nets. Lights moving up and down within the nets create dynamic movement, ranging from wave-like undulations to geometric patterns. This is an installation that inspires a scene of dialogue and connection with the region and the universe at large.

Drapery Studies Series 布紋習作系列

Drapery Studies series originate from drapery commonly seen in Graeco-Roman sculptures. Through this simple form, it explores the basic matters in traditional western arts, such as mass, volume, texture, and representation, and combines these with the idealist, poetic space concepts in Chinese culture.

 

Drapery Studies series is produced in a way identical with the process of making traditional oil paintings. Based on the material system of oil paintings, the linen was shaped randomly into draperies and wrinkles and was coated with multiple layers of rabbit skin glue and gesso to secure its form. After, the pigments or oil color were applied on the material. Differ from general paintings, Drapery Studies forsake pictures, which are deemed the core of paintings, and follows the natural patterns and microscopic imagination to develop the scenery. Its art form is in between painting, sculpture, and installation art, and it is an experiment that integrates the essence of Chinese Shan Shui and western art forms.

 

Drapery Studies series deals with matters of materials, techniques, art history, and cultural traditions those have been gradually missing in the concept-oriented contemporary art field. Drapery Studies

 

 

布紋習作發想自希臘羅馬雕塑常見的衣紋(Drapery),借此簡單的形式,探討西方藝術傳統中的體感、量感、材質與再現等基本命題,連結東方文化中唯心而詩意的空間觀念。

 

製作方式與傳統油畫無異,引用其材料系統,從麻布開始隨機拉出布紋皺摺,塗布多層兔皮膠及Gesso固定其造型,再上油畫顏料或色粉。與一般繪畫最大的差異在於,捨棄普遍認為繪畫核心的圖像(picture),順應自然產生的隨機紋理,微觀想像,逐步發展其空間意境,介於繪畫、雕塑與裝置之間,是山水精神與西方藝術形式的整合實驗。

 

布紋習作系列所處理的材料、技法、美術史及文化傳統等,正是觀念主導的當代藝術所逐漸遺忘的一切。

As a choreographer and dancer, Su Wen-chi has thought through the fundamentals of choreography, which she regards the frontier of dance. Leading her own dance company YiLab., Su contemplates on how the stage connects sensory and interpretative faculties of the body. This investigation begins with unbroken concentration on the body and the space.

 

In Off the Map, Su seeks visceral understanding of the interior of the body through external clues. By juxtaposing space and senses, she maps out the trajectories of inner monologue through bodily movements precisely in order to transgress their parameters. The body becomes the vehicle for transition to a different dimension of presence.

Version française du texte remis le soir du spectacle

FR    Wen-Chi Su est la révélation du moment. Cette jeune chorégraphe fait partie de la nouvelle génération d’artistes taïwanais qui déboule sur les scènes européennes. C’est dire qu’une halte à La Bâtie devenait nécessaire. Depuis quelques années, elle développe des formes expérimentales mêlant danse et nouveaux médias, miroir d’un monde oscillant entre tradition et modernité.
Dans Off the Map, Wen-Chi Su évolue seule sur une scène brillante, où son corps se reflète dans un subtil jeu de lumières, tandis que parvient à nos oreilles une bande-son murmurée. Lenteur et précision sont les maîtres-mots de ce solo pour un corps pétri de muscles saillants ; le plateau déforme la réalité, devenant un espace virtuel instable et flottant. La vulnérabilité de l’être éclate, avec délicatesse et habileté. L’humain est ainsi ; ce n’est pas trop de le dire.

 

EN    Young Taiwanese choreographer Wen-Chi Su is a rising contemporary star. In Off the Map, she dances alone in a subtle play of lights, her body reflected on the sparkling stage. Reality is transformed into a virtual, unsteady and weightless space. A wonderfully delicate solo.

Profoundly poetic and of hypnotic beauty, the performance Off the Map creates a space for contemplation in which viewers are invited to get away from their sense of time and reality for a while and get in touch with their inner self.

In a setting reminiscent of the immaterial light of dawn and every so often changing into sky, clouds, sea, or night, the female body is moving slowly, precisely and steadily. There is a constant whisper mapping perhaps her inner monologue – probably what motivates her body to go “off the map”. Her body: embodying all the history of Far-Eastern physicality and its characteristic profound spirituality; yet, a contemporary body in a mediated environment. A body vulnerable yet vigorous, incorporating all the fragility of the human in a fluid, ever-changing post-industrial world: a metaphor for the human condition today.

 

Wen-Chi Su belongs to a younger generation of Taiwanese, and broadly Far-Eastern artists, who grew up in a society torn between the pervading influence of tradition and the rapid growth of technology, consequently opening up to the Western way of living. These two contradictory facets are united in her work in a purely organic and poetic way. As dance and technology do. In fact, her own career testifies to that: She studied New Media Art in Taipei and went on to get a PhD in Drama, Theatre and Performance at the University of Roehampton, London. She has been showing her work since 2001 in many countries in the East and West, gradually earning her place in major festivals. In 2005, she founded YiLab, an experimental group of new media and performance artists, her vehicle for creating pieces which explore the relationship between the body and new media, and combine dance and performance with installation art and technology.

15 Artists About to Dominate 2015

By Holly Howe on complex.com
Jan 12, 2015

Last November, Christie’s auction house in New York grossed the highest amount ever for a contemporary auction—$852.9 million across 75 lots. 319,000 people visited the Jeff Koons retrospective at the Whitney before the museum closed its doors to move to its new home in New York’s Meatpacking District. Another 110,000 visited the Serpentine Galleries in London to hang out with Marina Abramovic as she spent 512 hours in the gallery. Miley Cyrus and André 3000 jumped on the art band wagon at Art Basel Miami Beach last month; she brought her “Dirty Hippie” exhibition at the Raleigh Hotel with a performance while he exhibited the jumpsuits he had worn on the Outkast Festival Tour.

But what’s next? What will get the art hacks and celebrity commentators tongues wagging this year? How can you get a piece of the multi-billion dollar industry that is the art world? Here are our picks of 15 Artists About to Dominate 2015.

The Top 10 Artists Under 35 in 2014
by ARTSY EDITORIAL
Dec 23, 2014

“The most extraordinary moment of 2014, for me, was winning the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, which has been a longstanding dream of mine since my university days in London,” Richard Mosse, the 34-year-old photographer and filmmaker who tops this year’s list of most popular artists under 35, told Artsy. As with the rest of the artists below, whether selling out their first solo shows or stunning crowds with high auction prices, the 20- and 30-something lot of artists have garnered much attention in 2014, and the following names—hailing from New York, Brussels, Los Angeles, Cologne, and Taipei—reflect the artists, born post 1979, with the highest number of artist follows on Artsy this year.

One month into 2014 and Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung was celebrating the Lancaster edition of his traveling solo debut in the UK (split between Peter Scott Gallery and The Story in Lancaster), where some of his best-known landscapes, installations, and still life videos were on view. A highlight was his “Wrinkled Texture” photography series, Prussian-blue cyanotypes that have been crumpled and set in the sun, reimagining traditional Chinese landscape paintings. Finishing off the year, Wu has just been shortlisted for the Prudential Eye Awards, a prize granted to the best in emerging Asian contemporary artists to be announced January 2015.

“We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the illuminous interval life.”

─Nikos Kazantzakis The Saviors of God

 

Edge of Light is the light and shadow installation collaboration of the two artists Chen Shu-Chiang and Wu Chi-Tsung. It is placed in the diesel-electric workshop of the Taiwan Railways Administration. The equipment, instruments, tools, and other objects from the past are scattered around the space. As the rail trolley, which is installed with lights, slowly moves, the flowing light and shadows project multiple imagery about the railways, the cities, the mountains and sea, the homeland and the foreign lands, and other unrecognizable things, revealing a journey which memories and imagination have become intertwined.

The railways move us from one end to the other. It represents the idea of leaving home, starting a new life, pursuing our ideals, and life and death. It carries our family love, friendship and romantic love. Moving back and forth, the interval of the two ends writes and develops the stories of different people continuously.

 

「我們來自一個黑暗深淵,我們結束於一個黑暗的深淵,我們把其間明亮的部分稱之為生命。」

——卡山扎基 / 心靈演習

《極光邊境》(Edge of light)是藝術家陳淑強和吳季璁共同創作的光影裝置作品,使用台鐵數十年歷史的柴電工廠,空間中散置許多過去的設備、儀器、 鐵架、工具、和各式物品;當安裝上光源的軌道台車緩緩移動時,流動的光影映射出各種意像,關於鐵路、關於都市、關於山與海、本地與異鄉、還有許多不明所以的事物,展開一段記憶和想像交織的旅程。

鐵路載運我們從一端移動到另一端,離鄉背井、開創生活、追求理想、生離死別,滿載著親情、友情、愛情;而這往復的兩極之間,不斷書寫和

開展著人們的生命故事。

「吳季璁個展-灰塵」於英國雪菲爾Site Gallery,被英國最廣為閱讀的藝文參考指標《衛報》(The Guardian)藝文指南(The Guide)列為全英國當週必看的展覽之一。

 

Solo exhibition “Wu Chi-Tsung: Dust” in Site Gallery, Sheffield, UK has been listed as one of the week’s essential art shows in UK by The Guardian Guide.

 

As the viewer moves around the space, disturbing the airflow, the artist’s highly sophisticated equipment projects the movement of the otherwise invisibly displaced dust particles across the gallery walls in a mesmerising and endlessly changing light show. In an accompanying piece, the artist turns his focus on the enchantments of a nocturnal city. Lit solely by a single, slowly shifting light source, a series of commonplace transparent plastic boxes are silhouetted around the room to evoke a ghostlike cityscape. The Guardian Guide

Wheel of life / Samsara is the core view of life and cosmology of Buddhism, which refers to the endless cycle of reincarnation and perpetual transformation of consciousness within cause and effect, life and death, and the Six Realms (Heaven, Human, Asura, Animal, Hungry, Hell), without achieving Nirvana and breaking free form all sorts of troubles, pains, life and death, and cycle of existence.

The work borrows the concept of ‘Samsara’ to illustrate the excessive and countless message and images in our daily life, which are rapidly produced, replicated, and spread to weave a massive cycle of information, in which mind and consciousness seem to be trapped endlessly without escaping.

In the circular space, a number of cameras and projectors are interconnected. Cameras capture the images played by one projector; the recorded video is then transmitted to another projector to be broadcasted. The connected cameras and projectors form a massive feedback system. When audiences enter the space, they will be physically inside the cycle as their images are immediately captured, reproduced, and broadcasted.


「輪迴」(wheel of  life  / Samsara)是佛教核心的生命觀和宇宙觀,指意識在 因果、生死、以致六道(天、人、修羅、畜生、餓鬼、地獄)中無盡的循環轉世,不斷的轉換形態,不到「涅槃」(Nirvana),無法超脫種種煩惱、痛苦、生死、輪迴。

作品中借用「輪迴」的概念,描述我們日常生活中,大量充斥的無數訊息、影像,快速生產複製傳遞,串聯出一個龐大的資訊輪迴,意識彷彿無時無刻深陷其中,難以擺脫。

環形的空間中,有多組攝影機及投影機相互串聯,攝影機拍攝投影畫面,再傳送到另一個投影畫面播出,連結構築成一個龐大的回朔(Feedback)系統,觀眾進入空間,身體的影像立即被拍攝、複製、傳播,身處整個輪迴之中。

吳季璁於英國曼徹斯特華人藝術中心(Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester)舉辦的首度英國個展「重新校準」(Recalibrate),被英國最廣為閱讀的藝文參考指標《衛報》(The Guardian)藝文指南(The Guide)列為全英國當週必看的三個展覽之一。
其他資料: 中央通訊社報導

 

Wu Chi-Tsung’s Solo exhibition “Recalibrate” has been listed as one of the three the week’s essential art shows in UK by The Guardian Guide.

 

“Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung is remarkable in his ability to adapt traditions of Chinese landscape ink painting and shadow puppetry to our contemporary world. The two installations here present visions of the manufactured and the natural. Crystal City 004 presents an architectural enchantment of constantly shifting city vistas as shadows move across the gallery walls, while Wrinkled Textures is a series of close-up studies of natural growths captured through cyanotype printing.” The Guardian Guide

這是一件自傳性的裝置作品。白色的粉末(石灰)覆蓋了平日的工作空間,像是傳統繪畫中的「留白」,賦予現實的景象更多的想像空間,乍看之下如同雪景,細看每個局部都像是山巒起伏,自成一個微觀的山水意境。

作品中的這組框架和桌子是我2006年製作的,當時和幾位朋友合開了一家金工的店面、工作室,因為其工藝性質,
當初對於空間、傢俱設計的構想,
就是一種傳統工藝的裝飾性與現代美感形式過渡與融合的風格,如Glasgow的Mackintosh或Venice的Carlo Scarpa,都是我發想之初的參考;也加入了些許榫接和東方空間的穿透性元素。因為經營不善而結束,兩年後這組框架和桌子就回到我的工作室,伴隨我數年時間,許多的創作發想和製作過程,皆源於此。

每天在其中工作,慢慢發現,就像這組框架的混合風格,其實就是我生命和創作的寫照,常常身處在轉換與交界的模糊/過度地帶:傳統的藝術養成訓練到當代的藝術形式╱觀念,東╱西方的文化衝擊,邊緣/中心間的思索,難解的認同問題,抽象思考到身體勞動⋯⋯很長的一段時間,我常常在其中掙扎,面對許多矛盾和尷尬,但三十歲之後的自己似乎逐漸有了新的體悟。也許因為環境,也須因為性格特質,慢慢發展出某種折衷的生命和藝術觀,相較於前衛和衝突性,我往往更感興趣於追求融合與平衡。

回頭想想,這看似矛盾的一切,本來都是並存的現實,都是構成我自身的一部分。我想文化與認同的複雜問題亦是如此。

The central locus of my creative work has always been a discussion as to the real nature of images; how they are produced, perceived by viewers and the impact they have. However, the way in which this is executed has never been particularly disciplined or scientific, resembling something more akin to a game. Sometimes I experiment with just one part, or exchange some of the elements to see what changes that causes in the creation of images and whether there is anything of interest hidden inside.

A great deal of the depth of illusion created by pictures or images comes from the single point of perspective. In other words, all straight lines not parallel to the picture disappear into some point in the distance, almost as though space is being sucked into a bottomless hole. It was this view point that made me wonder what the viewable world would be like if there was no point of disappearance.

I guess it would be really flat.

 

我的創作主軸,一直以來環繞著影像的本質探討,影像如何被生產、如何被觀者感知及產生作用等;不過它的進行方式不太嚴謹、科學,比較像是個靈機一動的遊戲,有時只挑出某個部份來實驗,或置換某個元素、環節,看看影像的生產運作,會產生怎麼樣的變化,有沒有什麼好玩的東西躲藏其中。

圖像、影像的深度幻覺,有一大部分來自於單點透視的效果,也就是所有不與畫面平行的直線都交會在無限遠的消失點,像是空間被吸進一個無止境的深洞。於是我有個想法,如果沒有消失點,我們所見的世界會變成什麼樣子。

我猜應該會­很扁。

I truly believe that  photographing  is an instant., not for how fast the shutter can be, but the thin layer of  images. No matter where the layer attaches to, films, paper or screens, it  always looks like sort of slice.

All I try to say is, if  spending a day on a photo, the day becomes an instant.

 

我深信攝影就是「瞬間」,倒不是因為快門多快,而是那薄薄的一層影像,無論依附在底片、紙張、還是螢幕,怎麼看都像某種切片。

只是想說,如果用一天的時間拍攝一張照片,那一天不就變

成了一瞬間。

Drawing my face with a flashlight for a couple minutes, then shooting with B shutter in the darkroom.

The idea of a “blurred face ” appeals to me deeply. I tried to grab or sketch my face through the light and images in the passage of time and motion, but it was such a mission impossible.

 

(ps.No.1底片於放相後即遺失)

幾分鐘的時間內,用手電筒畫自己的臉,在暗室中以B快門拍攝。

某種「面目模糊」的意像深深吸引著我,在運動和時間的流逝中,企圖透過光和影像,描繪、捕捉住自己的臉孔,卻不可能。

在航空科學中,空氣動力學(Aerodynamics)是運算飛機與氣流間各種量力關係,如何能在空中飛行的物理定律。每次創作都像是一場身體實驗的編舞家林文中,以此科學方法為靈感,要將舞蹈動作與身體意象的結構過程,變成一種飛行的方式。 透過重組空間與時間的立體向度,微觀肌肉運動的細節,研發動作與動力如何離開地面,形成升空、暫留、恆速、滑翔、翻轉、漂浮等各種身體樣態。同時將舞蹈類比人類對抗引力的欲望,在物理與心理空間中折返,引發身體動力學的無限詩意與想像。

Profoundly poetic and of hypnotic beauty, the performance Off the Map creates a space for contemplation in which viewers are invited to get away from their sense of time and reality for a while and get in touch with their inner self.

In a setting reminiscent of the immaterial light of dawn and every so often changing into sky, clouds, sea, or night, the female body is moving slowly, precisely and steadily. There is a constant whisper mapping perhaps her inner monologue – probably what motivates her body to go “off the map”. Her body: embodying all the history of Far-Eastern physicality and its characteristic profound spirituality; yet, a contemporary body in a mediated environment. A body vulnerable yet vigorous, incorporating all the fragility of the human in a fluid, ever-changing post-industrial world: a metaphor for the human condition today.

蘇文琪透過此次演出,反省所謂新媒體的意義,希望保有創作精神,但降低技術性。也因此,雖然仍舊「跨界」,依然「多媒體」,《身體輿圖》卻呈現了新媒體的「低限主義」。

擅長視覺裝置的吳季璁,以全白屏幕和成本不高的汽車隔熱紙打造簡單而充滿流動感、意象驚人的舞台,「文琪的肢體充滿臨界狀態、內在張力飽滿,所以我創造一個中性、開放的空間,讓舞台既有無限延伸,又保有壓迫感。」
