無我-井上有一個展|4.13-5.25|別古藏藝術空間

別古藏藝術空間將於本週六2019年4月13日誠摯推出
井上有一 個展 無我
井上有一 (Yuichi Inoue) 是日本前衛書法藝術家。一生致力于書法個人化的內心法則,面對井上有一的字,當形態幾乎無法辨識或出乎意料,我們要怎麼看待他的書法呢?
這是極端時刻,書法與繪畫在他手中融為一體,難以區辨,以至於說它體現了中華文化所謂的書畫同源 是不符實情,也是這個傳統的美學思想所難以周全的。
例如說,讓井上有一贏得世界聲譽的第四屆「聖保羅國際美術展」(1957),當中有一幅名為《無我》的字畫,若我們不看標題,還不一定能認出來;而且,這跟認字能力無關,而是書法從它依附的字義解放出來,成為另一種意義的表達。
借用德勒茲的哲學術語,這個我是分子化的我,歷劫歸來的我無我,那是他所說的心,他所寫的字,等同於一種感應力,某種情動(affect),藉由書法將自我生命給予高度美學化的實踐,是在書法的現代性中擬寫一份來自日本、屬於當代人的生命報告書。

此次也是我們第二次舉辦井上有一的個展,敬邀大家前來恭襄盛舉!

Tso Gallery is pleased to present the second solo exhibition for Yuichi Inoue.
Yuichi is a Japanese avant-garde calligrapher who devoted his life to showcasing highly individualised inner desires through the medium of calligraphy.How should we comprehend the almost unidentifiable or unexpected form of Yuichi Inoue’s calligraphic works? They were created at the climactic moments when calligraphy and painting merge into one via Inoue’s hand, and to distinguish the former from the latter is like herding cats.

However, Inoue’s calligraphic works were by no means a manifestation of the age-old argument in Chinese art history, that is, calligraphy is homologous to painting, which was why this traditional aesthetic idea didn’t apply to his oeuvre.

For example, Insubstantiality, a “calligraphic painting” by Inoue displayed at the 4th São Paulo Art Biennial (1957) that shot him to fame, was hardly recognizable until we read its caption. To put it another way, it had nothing to do with calligraphic literacy, but aimed to liberate calligraphy from the character’s meaning it attached itself to, thereby transforming them into the articulation of an alternative meaning.

To borrow Gilles Deleuze’s philosophical phrase. His substantiality transmuted into insubstantiality after his narrow escape from death. What arose therefrom was his innermost being. To sum up, Inoue’s calligraphic oeuvre was an artistic incarnation of telepathy or affect, and his aesthetic practice of sublimating his life through calligraphy was nothing short of a Japanese-written chronicle of contemporary people manifested in this art form’s very modernity.
