台灣白石畫廊將於2018年6月30日至7月31日舉辦蔡磊個展「23平米」。此次展覽是蔡磊在台北的首次個展,也是藝術家創作於2018年的十餘件新作的首次亮相。

蔡磊出生於1983年,現生活、工作於北京,其作品探索空間與錯覺之間的關係。他的藝術實踐顯露出平面性的興趣,以空間錯覺概念描繪二維轉變成三維的空間縱深感。不論在繪畫及浮雕的創作上,蔡磊擅長利用光影色調強化空間的錯覺,並把這種知覺衝突凸顯在繪畫空間中的平面走廊或角落,使觀眾體會繪畫中物理平面性與真實空間性之間的張力和轉換。

此次展覽的作品延續了蔡磊在美學上的持續探索。無論在材料,還是在藝術觀念上,蔡磊的創作都有著「含混」或「複義」的意味。作品帶來的房間內部的經驗真實感,不僅是來自視錯覺,也來自材料本身。作品「23平米」則運用透視原理對視覺的誘導,以精確的運算將約4平方米的繪畫呈現出視覺中23平米的效果,在空間性與視錯覺之間,造成意義與感性的多重並置。

蔡磊的作品凸顯了空間內部的情境性和在場感。壓縮在單件作品中的空間體量被擴展至整個展覽空間中,作品表面的視覺層次交遞為展覽空間內的不同場域。借助於透視與雕塑的巧妙設置,藝術家的心理空間在現實中再現為物理空間,從而讓觀者進入作品的場域之中,形成認知經驗的反差與思考。

Whitestone Gallery Taipei is pleased to announce Cai Lei’s first solo exhibition in Taipei. This solo exhibition will also mark the debut of the artist’s more than 10 recent works created in 2018.

Cai Lei was born in 1983, now lives and works in Beijing. Cai Lei’s works explore the relationship between illusion and space. From his interest in planarity, he carves out an illusory conceptual space which oscillates between the second and third dimension for his creations. In his works both painting and mixed media sculptural relief, light plays an important factor in enhancing this illusion of depth. Painted spaces of interior hallways or corners simultaneously protrude and recede depending on the viewer’s experience of the work.

The works of this exhibition present Cai Lei’s continuous exploration in aesthetics. Cai Lei’s creation involves the idea of “ambiguity”, or “polysemy”, both in his choice of material and artistic concept. His works provide a truthful experience of a room’s interior space as the result of the visual illusion and the cement material itself. The work “23m2” aims to trick our visual perception through the theory of perspective by accurately fitting the 23m2 visual area into a 4m2 canvas, creating a juxtaposition of textual meaning and sensibility between spatiality and visual illusion.

Cai Lei’s works highlight the scenery and presence of an interior space. As the compressed spatial volume of a single piece of work becomes associated with the exhibition room, its surface of optical layering seems to create another distinct field within the exhibition. With the clever combination of perspective and sculptural setting, the artist’s psychological space is manifested in reality, allowing the viewer to enter the arena of his work, forming a contradictive but cognitive experience.
