Mandala of Ink Art

Date: 2017 Jun 24 – Oct 29
Venue: Kaohsiung Fine Arts Museum, Kaoshiung, Taiwan


What is contemporary? How to define ink art? Each person has different answers to these questions. This exhibition is an attempt to present the cotemporary facets of ink art through the most inclusive and open-minded observation as possible, transcending all literal definitions of contemporariness or ink art. Drawing references from the concept of “mandala”, this exhibition is composed of four themes: “Form” (material), “Meaning” (spirituality), “Void” (contrast between void and solid) and “Space” (spatial structure). They are the four quadrants in the mandala of this exhibition to have a systematic review of the development of contemporary ink art in this new century. The theme at the center of the mandala is Chi, which means “energy of the universe”. In the exhibition, it provides an experimental territory representing the subjective spirit of new-generation artists and the perspectives of ink art in southern Taiwan. By asking questions not asked before and serving as an interdisciplinary and multimedia platform, this exhibition aspires to discover another round of paradigm-shifting possibilities for the future of ink art.

何為當代?又該如何定義水墨?言人人殊,本展覽捨棄作字面的定義,試圖用最大化的包容與開放去觀察、去呈現,具現水墨藝術的當下現象。展覽藉曼陀羅的概念,由 「形‧意‧空‧間」四個主題形成四個方位,亦即透過「材質」、「精神性」、「虛/實」、「空間」等四個面向梳理當代水墨藝術在新世紀發展的脈絡;曼陀羅的軸心區—「輪圓」,主題為「炁」,是「宇宙能量」之意,它是新生代的實驗場域,表現新生代及南方水墨觀點的主體性精神。本展覽希冀不僅扮演新的提問者角色,也秉持平台、跨界、多媒的理想信念,為水墨藝術的未來提供另一輪翻轉的可能。
