如是_偏安一隅   borrowed space_borrowed time

a solo exhibition by Bouie Choi Yuk Kuen

16/9 – 14/10/2020

「天陰,但有光…」

“cloud gathers, with light”

「在我開始碎碎唸之前,我想說,這是一個關於我最愛的一片土地的展覽。如果說偏安是「殘存」,那麼殘留下來的或許是最真實、最可貴的。」

“Let me explain before I start murmuring something incomprehensible: this is an exhibition about my beloved homeland; this is about the remained, the authentic, the precious.”

蔡氏這一次繪畫城市物象,更像在描繪空氣與物件的碰撞,像在晦暝的天陰日,看見有光。「山水總是在提醒著人是渺小的」,居高的建築物、龐然的生物、巨大的人,這些不僅是對照,也是藝術家的心境投射。如果畫作是盛載著無數個「借來的空間、借來的時間」的「(再)載體」, 蔡氏這次除了拼湊不同景物,也試圖從時空的虛實、不協調、不由自主,在過隙期間嘗試修復、尋找彼此的縫合點。

Amidst the urban imagery, Choi intends to depict how the object attempted to collide with the negative space but in vain. It is like searching for light over the overcast sky. While the landscape often reminds us how insignificant we are, the high-rise buildings, the enormous creature, the giant… these objects not only contrasted but also projected the artist’s state of mind. If a painting is a carrier of infinite borrowed space and time, Choi is attempting to reconnect the gap between the real and the unreal, the indescribable space and time with the light of hope, and her army of urban imagery.
