双方藝廊於2019年8月17日至9月21日推出「影.暴.性」錄像藝術展,力邀四組國內外藝術家:娜塔莉.杜爾柏格&漢斯.伯格(瑞典)、瑞秋.麥克林(英國)、王俊傑(台灣)和蘇匯宇(台灣),由藝評人沈伯丞擔任展覽專題研究。

「影.暴.性」展名取自「引爆信」諧音,本展希冀通過影像及聲音訊號刺激所構成的傳輸,嘗試去促發某種螫居於身體內在的潛質或者精神面貌;如沈伯丞所述:

「本展為一個藉由血肉、體液和激素去戳刺觀者再思索『動物身體性』的雷管。而那些訊號構成的官能和異想的影像,恰是創作者與展覽所放送的刺激電訊」

在展出作品中,藝術家透過影像及聲音的結合聚焦探討著身分認同、性別意識、政治權力、流行文化、社會暴力、消費主義等當代社會議題,引領觀眾從多元視角觀看周遭的世界。

本次展出的四組藝術家其中有三組曾獲邀參與「威尼斯雙年展」,娜塔莉.杜爾柏格&漢斯.伯格 (Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg)於大會主題展展出並獲選銀獅獎、瑞秋.麥克林 (Rachel Maclean)於蘇格蘭館展出、王俊傑於台灣館展出,而蘇匯宇也在今年5月榮獲台新藝術獎的「視覺藝術獎」。

四組藝術家的創作在世界各地都獲得極高評價: 娜塔莉.杜爾柏格&漢斯.伯格的創作曾被英國衛報評為『作品是世上最怪異的黏土的動畫』並獲紐約現代藝術博物館(MoMA) 及米蘭Prada基金會典藏;瑞秋.麥克林為英國近年來快速崛起的年輕藝術家,曾在泰特不列顛美術館(Tate Britain) 舉辦個展,且作品獲英國廣播公司(BBC)委託製作;蘇匯宇近年來獲邀參與鹿特丹等多項國際影展及個人專題放映;王俊傑1984年開始錄像藝術創作,為台灣新媒體藝術的開創者之一,同時身兼策展人工作,曾參與包括光州、威尼斯等多個國際大型雙年展覽。

本次双方藝廊更特別與台灣三星合作,藉由4台82吋電視完美呈現蘇匯宇獲獎錄像裝置作品之台北首展,以細膩的色彩與畫質為觀眾帶來不同於以往的視覺體驗。

Double Square Gallery is proud to present Fuse—Video Art Exhibition from August 17 to September 21, 2019. The exhibition showcases three artists and one artist duo from Taiwan and abroad, including Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg (Sweden), Rachel Maclean (UK), WANG Jun-Jieh (Taiwan) and SU Hui-Yu (Taiwan), with art critic SHEN Bo-Cheng as the exhibition’s academic researcher. The exhibition title “fuse” conveys the concept of using image and sound signals to form stimulations and release unknown dormant potentiality or spiritual dimension within us.

As Shen stated, “This exhibition resembles a detonator comprising of flesh and blood, fluid and hormones that aims to provoke the audience’s reflection on ‘animal corporeality’; and the signals that constitute the images of senses and fantasies are precisely the electric stimulations emitted from the artists and the exhibition.”

The works on view in the exhibition employ the combination of image and sound to explore contemporary social issues about identity, gender awareness, political power, popular culture, social violence and consumerism, leading the audience to examine their surrounding world from diverse perspectives. Three artists featured in the exhibition have been invited to participate in the Venice Biennale: the work of Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg was showcased in the main exhibition of the Biennale and awarded the Silver Lion; Rachel Maclean was showcased in the Scotland Pavilion and WANG Jun-Jieh the Taiwan Pavilion. Su Hui-Yu is the recipient of the Taishin Visual Arts Award in this year’s Taishin Arts Award presented in May.

The featured artists have received critical accolades from around the world. The works by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg were praised by The Guardian as “the world’s weirdest claymations” and have been included in the collections of MoMA, New York and the Prada Foundation in Milan. Rachel Maclean is a highly anticipated and emerging artist in the UK. She has held a solo exhibition at Tate Britain and is a commissioned artist for the BBC. In recent years, SU Hui-Yu has been invited by multiple international film festivals for special screenings, such as the International Rotterdam Film Festival. WANG Jun-Jieh started creating video art in 1984 and has been viewed as one of the pioneers in Taiwan’s new media art scene. He is also a curator and has participated in various major international biennials, including Gwangju Biennale and Venice Biennale. For the debut of Su Hui-Yu’s award-winning video installation in Taipei, Double Square Gallery also forms a special partnership with SamsungTaiwan to present the work with four 82-inch flat TVs, bringing the audience a unique visual experience with superb colors and definition.
