席時斌 Hsi Shih-Pin < 挪亞方舟前一天的單身派對 The Party Before Boarding The Noah’s Ark >

挪亞方舟前一天的單身派對 The Party Before Boarding The Noah’s Ark  

席時斌 Hsi Shih-Pin

2019 / 3 / 11~ 4 / 19  (08:30-20:30)
Taishin Bank Foundation for Arts and Culture (1F, No. 118, Sec 4, Ren-ai Rd. , Taipei 106, Taiwan )








7:9  都是一對一對地,有公有母,到挪亞那裡進入方舟,正如 神所吩咐挪亞的。

你說你要離開了,去美國念書,我說一路平安,快樂開心。
多年後,聽到你結婚的事情。

7:12  四十晝夜降大雨在地上。

飯局上,大家開心聊著過去,但我們卻沒有交談。
廁所外,你偷偷拉住我,那樣純真的眼睛,微笑著說:「對不起。」

在洪水過後,諾亞方舟擱淺在亞拉臘山上,最後,上帝以彩虹作為立約的記號,不再因人的緣故詛咒大地,並使各種生物存留永不停息。

9:16  虹必現在雲彩中,我看見,就要記念我與地上各樣有血肉的活物所立的永約。



7:9 Two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.

You told me that you were leaving for the US to study. I wished you a safe voyage and much happiness
Years later, the news of your wedding reached my ears.

7:12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.

At the dinner party, people had a good time talking about the past; but there was only silence between you and me.
Outside the restroom, you took hold of me in private. Looking at me innocently, you said with a smile, “I’m sorry.”

After the flood, Noah’s ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. Finally, God set the rainbow as the sign of the covenant, promising that earth shall never again be cursed because of humanity and all living creatures shall continue for perpetual generations.

9:16 The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.


作品介紹

《挪亞方舟前一天的單身派對》中,藝術家以鋁柱打造了一艘乘載著各種動物的宇宙飛船——挪亞方舟號,由騎士船長引領著船上的動物前往未知大地,宇宙飛船的金屬色澤與質地與各式動物的細緻造,創造出綺麗的視覺感受。一旁如守衛者的「星之獅」,以稜角分明的幾何線條及切片由內而外勾勒出獅子的身形,呈現獨特的姿態。

 展覽引自《希伯來聖經・創世紀》裡,挪亞依照上帝指示建造方舟並帶領動物躲避洪水的故事。《聖經》中敘明能進到方舟中的物都是「一對一對地,有公有母」,使方舟彷彿是一場婚禮盛宴,前一天,則是舉辦單身派對的日子,此時,眾多單身者未被遺留,仍共享歡樂

 席時斌經常使用「分解╱重組」的創作方法,運用於外顯的視覺結構,也運用於作的構想與發展,作品包裹著離別故事,故事分解自日常生活中已漸消融的片段,再重組出麗的想像記憶。

About the Artwork

In The Party Before Boarding The Noah’s Ark, the artist presents The Noah’s Ark, a spacecraft made of aluminum posts and piloted by Knight Captain, leading all animals on board to an unknown land. The metallic sheen and texture of the spacecraft and the delicate forms of the animals conveys a mesmerizing visual perception. Polyhedron Lion, as a guardian of the vessel in this case, demonstrates the unique bearing of a lion with an angular contour outlined with geometric shapes and metal plates. 

The theme of the exhibition is inspired by the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible, in which Noah built an ark per God’s command to shelter the animals from the flood. It is stated in the Bible that “two by two” the animals enter the ark, “male and female.” For the artist, this scenario reminds him of a wedding feast. Therefore, the day before the embarkation would be the day of the bachelor or bachelorette party when the singles are not yet left behind and can still have a good time together.

Hsi Shih-Pin often employs the approach of deconstruction and reconstruction in tangible visual structures as well as in the conception and development of his creative work. His works tell stories of bidding farewell, which stem from fading fragments in daily life that are reconstructed as splendid installations mixed with imagination and memory.

席時斌 Hsi Shih-Pin <溪山行雲 The landscape around water and clouds >






 

作品 《溪山行雲》 以東方山水意象,透過數位技術與傳統手工並重的製作,解構傳統命題,雕塑的形態來自環境與材質,以及人們想像的混合。作品造形虛實交錯,光線時而穿透、時而反射。形體看似離散,卻又彼此連結。雖名以山水自然之物,卻著實反映城市與環境、個體與群體、真實與迷離之間彼此相依相存的當代生活樣態。

作品自述Artist Statement:

天馬 珀伽索斯是世界上最美麗的飛馬。據說他是海神波賽冬跟梅杜莎所生,這位最美麗的混血兒有著金色的雙翼,世界上最美麗的雙翼。

無垠 沒有邊界,沒有止境的追求,今年是我召喚馬匹的第十三年,召喚天馬的第六年,牠就是我的愛人,是我的父親,是我自己。

009 取自日本漫畫家石森章太郎的漫畫作品<人造人009>。我在敦煌石磚上看到一隻古老雕刻的天馬,巧合的是牠與我的天馬一樣長著鹿角,另外有著獅尾,戴著飄逸的長圍巾。我採用這個天馬作為作品最後收尾的形象,為牠沒有止境的修改,暫告一個段落。據說敦煌天馬磚的圍巾正代表著絲路,而鹿角與獅尾的混種形態則揭示了這跨越7400公里的文化融合。<人造人009>中的九位人造人也都帶著長圍巾,有人說圍巾是他們超人的象徵,我則想像這是他們與人間最後的束縛,我們最終都要超越被圈養的命運。每位人造人都有屬於自己的特殊能力,而009只要一咬緊牙關,就能進入加速的時間,在這樣超人的速度中,所有的事物都像是幾乎靜止的,所有的生命都像是雕像一般,而所有的一切也幾乎都是永恆的不會失去,真的,所有一切都沒有失去,只要我們一再咬緊牙關。

席時斌的作品特徵在於幾何化繁複的象徵性圖案,並將它們聚集致失去原本意義,這種混雜了意義與無意義的剪裁拼接,被他稱之為「記憶」。他的目的在探索特定記憶之中更多次元的新意義。他的作品介於二維與三維之間,可被視為複數形象的契合,亦或是單一形象的分離。他認為雕塑作為極度現實的創作實踐,就會自然的召喚一些脫離現實的,不存在的,超越想像的事物。

席時斌.三|Hsi Shih-Pin.Invisible Stars of the Hydra

席時斌.三

一萬年後,遙遠的長蛇座,有顆恆星名叫星宿增三,
住著神之子赫拉克勒斯(Hercules),深愛隔壁班少女,想娶她為妻,
少女的父親要他冒險,帶回宇宙珍奇寶物才能結婚。
離別時,少女從雙腿間取出一把寶劍給他。
他用利劍割下頭顱,與波塞冬(Poseidon)交換最美麗的天馬,
又自身上取出一顆睪丸,用落日餘輝,孵化成鳳鳥。
數年後,赫拉克勒斯總算獲得許多珍寶,卻只剩右腿和陽具,衣不蔽體地回家。
少女的父親見到奇獸財寶,喜出望外要女兒馬上出嫁。
面對裸身的赫拉克勒斯,少女大聲怒斥:短小如你,如何愛我。
語畢,拿起劍殺了父親,騎上天馬飛走。
日後赫拉克勒斯常有戀足癖的愛慕者,倒也不至寂寞,
但仍思念他的天馬。

「今、夢を見ていた。又、会うぜ。きっと会う。滝の下で」*


*清顯緊握著本多的手,他說:「還會見面的。一定還會再見面的,就在瀑布下…。」

Hsi Shih-Pin.Invisible Stars of the Hydra

After ten thousand years, in the constellation Hydra far away, there was a star called “20 Hydrae,”

Where Hercules, the son of Zeus, lived, who was infatuated by a maiden from another classroom and wanted to marry her.

The maiden’s father demanded that he go on adventures and bring back rare and precious treasures before giving his consent.

As Hercules prepared to depart, the maiden pulled a sword out from between her legs and gave it to him.

Using the steely sword he chopped off his head to exchange with Poseidon for Pegasus.

He also removed one of his testicles, and it hatched into a phoenix with sunset.

Several years later, Hercules finally returned with copious treasures, but with only his right leg and his penis left. He was also scantily clad.

The father of the maiden was exhilarated by the treasures and wanted his daughter to marry Hercules right away.

Facing the naked Hercules, the maiden raged, “Short and small, how could you love me?”

As soon as she finished venting, she killed her father with the sword, mounted Pegasus, and flew away.

In later days, Hercules often had suitors with foot addiction, so he was not lonely.

Still, he remembered his horse.

"We will meet again. We will definitely meet again, right here, under this waterfall..."*


*Matsuki held Honda's hand tightly as he said, "We will meet again. We will definitely meet again, right here, under this waterfall..."
From Spring Snow written by Yukio Mishima.

藉由藝術大師在文化上遺留的珍寶,席時斌所創作的《大師之馬》,嫁接了達文西生動的馬首,米開朗基羅堅毅的身軀,貝里尼強壯動感的四肢,以及杜勒華美多層的飛翼。由大師創作中所擷取的綺麗元素,自由自在地重新拼接後,期待與觀者一同創造出充滿更多想像力的美感新經驗。

Artist Statement:
From the treasures left behind by the masters of the arts, I created “Horse of the Master”, which takes grafts from Leonardo da Vinci's lively horse head, Michelangelo's perseverance body, Gian Bernini's powerful and dynamic limbs, and Albrecht Dürer's gorgeous multi-layered wings. The exquisite elements taken from the Masters’ creations are freely reassembled. I look forward to generating and sharing more imaginative new experiences of beauty with the audience.
