新苑藝術將於2018年4月13日至5月11日,盛大推出徐夢涵睽違三年之台北個展《日常與肉身》,開幕酒會訂於4月13日晚間六點。不同於過往的壓克力作品以冷冽線條及充滿象徵性的詩意畫面作為創作主軸,徐夢涵擴展了自身的藝術語言,並將目光專注於日常所見的微小細節,展出〈日常與肉身〉、〈小花園〉系列攝影作品與〈肉身風景〉、〈疼痛之必要〉系列繪畫作品,透過繪畫、攝影與裝置系列作品及其相互的連動關係呈現專屬於徐夢涵的視覺語彙。

自2015年底,徐夢涵開始發展攝影創作,獵捕日常裡的靈感微光,對她來說,攝影與繪畫並不是毫無關聯的兩條創作線,而是相輔相成,共同組成一種視覺慣常與脈絡。徐夢涵透過攝影作品所展現的繪畫性,不只出現在照片的內容,還有捕捉影像過程中流露的身體感,盲拍所造成的隨機效果,暗房沖洗、檔案掃描的意外,甚至於是照片的挑選皆是。同時,徐夢涵的繪畫作品內容也產生改變,過往的壓克力系列作品使用強烈的對比用色、高度細緻的肌理線條,並將自身蒐集的物件融入畫面之中,創造一種帶有象徵及隱喻的視覺張力。但徐夢涵並不只滿足於使用單一媒材,〈肉身風景〉系列使用油彩為主要創作媒材,畫面的描繪從精細的勾勒轉向隨意的筆觸和色塊以及顏料的堆疊,主題與內容也由生死存在轉換為日常生活的切片。

個展《日常與肉身》作為徐夢涵創作的中繼站,她將蓬勃的創造能量暫時收聚,梳理過往三年來的創作脈絡,將看似截然不同的創作形式並置,首次同時呈現攝影、繪畫與裝置作品,彼此連結並互相延伸,進而帶領觀者進入更深一層的感受層次。

徐夢涵曾入選高雄美術獎、台北藝術博覽會「Made in Taiwan新人推薦特區」,曾獲選台南新藝獎優選藝術家。三月份時甫於日本京都GalleryMain參與聯展《固有結界》展出攝影作品,也曾於首爾、台北、台中、新竹等地舉辦聯展與個展,作品受國美館、文化部藝術銀行,以及金石堂龍顏基金會所典藏。

Galerie Grand Siècle, Taipei will be presenting HSU Meng-Han’s solo exhibition “Flesh and the Everydayness” from April 13th to May 11th, 2018, after a hiatus of three years, with the opening reception scheduled for 6:00 pm on April 13th. Differently from her previous acrylic works; with cold lines and symbolic poetic images as the main axis of creation, HSU Meng-Han has expanded her own artistic language and focused her gaze on the minute details of daily life, and will be exhibiting the photography series <Flesh and the Everydayness> and <Lilliputians>; and the painting series <Flesh Landscape> and <Essence of Pain>. Through her painting, photography, installation series and the relationships among them, HSU Meng-Han presents her unique visual vocabulary.

Since the end of 2015, HSU Meng-Han began developing photographic creations by capturing glimmers of inspiration from everyday life. For her, photography and painting are not two unrelated creative lines, but a complement of each other, forming together a type of habitual vision and train of thought. The painting aspect which HSU Meng-Han displays through her photographs not only appear in the contents of the photos, but is also revealed in the expression of the sense of body during image capturing, in the random effects caused by blind shots, in the accidents from darkroom development and file scanning, and even in the selection of photos. At the same time, the contents of HSU Meng-Han’s paintings have also gone through change. In the past, her acrylic series consisted of strong contrasting colors and highly detailed texture lines, and also incorporated objects she had collected into the painting to create visual tension with symbols and metaphors. However, HSU Meng-Han is not simply satisfied with the use of a single medium, the <Flesh Landscape> series uses oil paint as the main creative medium; the depiction of the image has moved from fine outlines towards random strokes and color blocks, as well as layering of pigments; the themes and contents have also been changing to depict slices of everyday life.

The solo exhibition “Flesh and the Everydayness” acts as a relay station for HSU Meng-Han’s works. She temporarily gathers her vigorous creative energy, sorts out her creative train of thoughts from the past three years, juxtaposes the seemingly different forms of creation, and presents simultaneously for the first time her photography, paintings and installation works, which link and become an extension of each other, leading the audience to a deeper level of sensation.

HSU Meng-Han has been a selected artist at the Kaohsiung Awards, at Art Taipei “Made in Taiwan – Art Taipei Young Artist Discovery”, and has also been chosen as an artist of excellence at Next Art Tainan. Just in March, she participated in the group exhibition <Reality marble> with her photographic works at Gallery Main, Kyoto, Japan; apart from that, she has also held group exhibitions and solo exhibitions in Seoul, Taipei, Taichung, Hsinchu and other places. Her works has been collected by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan Art Bank, and Long – Yan Foundation, Kingstone Bookstore.
