安卓藝術將於2019年6月1日至7月6日推出獨家代理藝術家鍾江澤個展「解離.成像」,本展是暨2016年的「靡像」個展後,藝術家於安卓藝術第三度發表的個展。開幕酒會將於6月1日(星期六)下午3:00舉辦,我們誠摯邀請您的蒞臨。

在麥克魯漢(Herbert Marshall McLuhan,1911-1980)提出「媒體即訊息」的多年後,各種影像與訊息依然以一種急速膨脹的姿態取代人的感官與知覺,而電影作為二十世紀後最具有影響力的媒體之一,不論是影像片段、電影劇照、配樂或是人物台詞,無一不成為現今世代的共同記憶。身為一位在數位時代長成的藝術家,這些從電影畫面而來,透過不同媒體,多重轉譯的影像碎塊,成了鍾江澤源源不絕的靈感之泉。

藝術家靈感取材的電影包括了「入侵腦細胞」、「發條橘子」、「2001:太空漫遊」、「驚魂記」等,但相較於電影的內容本身,鍾江澤更著迷於影像畫面透過螢幕所閃現的一瞬靈光。這些影像在螢幕裡折射、偏色、消融、解離的過程,在藝術家的筆下轉化成畫布上遠離視覺經驗的奇幻色彩與怪誕圖像。在本次的展出作品中,鍾江澤交替運用許多不同的技法,表現螢幕表層質感,進而營造出解析度不足的粗糙顆粒與影格轉換時的疊影幻覺。藝術家試著撿拾這些從螢幕中裂解出來、稍縱即逝的碎片,剝離畫面的訊息指涉,再聚合出另一番更為感性的視覺意象。

關於藝術家

鍾江澤,1981 年出生於台北,現居住並創作於此。一直以來,鍾江澤不斷嘗試以不同的視角碰撞身處的當代世界,以畫筆表達和詮釋各種人性,發掘並創造更多的可能性;對他而言,創作是一種不停的挑戰,一種藉以達成不斷更新、自我防腐的狀態。鍾江澤善於擷取各種靈感,並讓既有的圖像或抽象概念自其原生處離散而形成一連串的思考。近年來亦參與數部電影合作,如2017年的「自畫像」與2019年即將上映的電影「緝魔」等等。作品曾受國立台灣美術館、藝術銀行、龍顏基金會等機構典藏。

1 June -6 July 2019
Venue|Mind Set Art Center
Opening Reception|3:00-6:30 pm, Saturday, 1 June 2019

Mind Set Art Center is delighted to present the latest exhibition of Jhong Jiang-Ze, Dissociate.Imaging, from 1 June to 6 July 2019. This exhibition is the artist’s third solo with Mind Set Art Center after Figurative Illusion in 2016. You are cordially invited to attend the opening reception, which will start with the presence of the artist from 3:00 pm on Saturday, 1 June.

Many years after the phrase “The medium is the message” coined by Herbert Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), different types of image and message have even rapidly blossomed and taken over human beings’ sensation and perception. Movies being one of the influential media since 20th century, its footage pictures, action stills, soundtracks and quotes absolutely become the collective memory of this generation. As Jhong was born and raised into an artist in the digital era, it is nature that the image fragments from film stills through different mediums processing feed the artist with boundless inspirations.

The artist fetches the creation ideas from the movies, such as The Cells, The Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Psycho and etc. However, compared to the narratives, he is far more fascinated with the flash of aura when images displaying on screens. Under his strokes, the transition of refraction, color casting, melting, and dissociation appeared on those screen images becomes fanciful colors and queer pictures on the canvas, meanwhile detach from the common viewing experience. In the works in the exhibition, Jhong applies diverse techniques by turns to render the texture of monitor, that serves the purpose in delineation of the double illusions of low-res pixels and switch frames. His attempts to collect the fleeting fractions dissociated from the screen as well as connotations associated with the frame stills result in the aggregation and generation of a greater image of visual perceptions.

About the artist

Through his work, various aspects of the human nature are probed and reinterpreted, revealing limitless possibilities of the way we perceive and react to the world. With powerful and unpredictable brush strokes, Jhong transforms the contemplation provoked by the dispersion of various images or ideas into mystic paintings. In recent years, he has taken part in several film productions, such as The Last Painting in 2017 and Deep Evil to release in 2019. His work is collected by institutions including National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan, Art Bank, Taiwan, and Long Yen Foundation, Taiwan.
