837 十方藝術空間


Manolo Gonzalez


出生於西班牙,從小便浸淫在藝術世家的薰陶中,因此擁有良好且正規美術教育底蘊,在即為年輕之時便開創出有別於傳統美術的個人當代藝術語言,至今他仍持續創作,並在美術館與公共藝術領域皆有傑出的表現。結合古典美與當代的力與簡潔美,Manolo運用不銹鋼絲鑿繪「網」---這個自古便是人類重要的捕獵工具---在穿鑿、編織、疏密疊合的交錯中,將人體盈躍、柔美的線條感結合空間本身具有的延展意象,柔和剛、優雅與強健、古典與當代….,在Manolo的雕塑中我們看到了對立元素的碰撞與融合。



Born in Spain, Manolo has been immersed in the influences of a family of artists since he was a child. In his youth, he has created a unique style in contemporary arts and now, his signatures in creations are easily identified in many museums and public projects. Combining classical aethestic with the power and simplicity, Manolo uses stainless steel wires to chisel and draw the "net" --- as “net” has been an important hunting tool for mankind since ancient times --- in the interlacing of chiseling, knitting, and overlapping.



陳泰樺ATI


1987年8月2日出生於台灣台北,中國文化大學美術系西畫組畢業。

一位懷疑自己腦袋,可能疑似被外星文明生物給破壞或重組再扔回地球的奇藝男子漢。自2014個展「麻辣奶凍之戀」開始,出現許多自創的滑稽可愛療癒的卡通人物、無用武之地的超級英雄、草莽奔放的狂派變形怪獸,許多符號元素散佈在畫作當中,讓觀賞者同時進入ATI獨特風格的猜謎探險之遊戲裏頭。

直到2015個展「太空哇沙米」再度將怪獸人物帶進入無俚頭的故事情節之中,偷夾帶著社會的嘲諷與慾言異味。突然驚喜地給了一段如寺山修司所形容的拳擊賽事一般,像那充斥著血與汗水的藍調之後,又再轉變成粉紅美女泡沫拳擊賽…。

讓人在遊走展場作品過程中,已經悄悄進入了作者幻想的小宇宙。一再反映著台灣七年級生的電視、電玩、電影所影響的創作青年,被外來流行文化以及台灣自身文化雙管並行影響腦結構,產生出一種不見得有營養價值的藝術的突變可能性。


ATI is a strange man who suspects his head has been broken down and reassembled by alien cultures and thrown back to earth. Since his 2014 solo show “Spicy Panna Cotta Love”, he has been creating hoards of comical, lovable, healing cartoon characters, super heroes with no purpose, and unrestrained and uncultivated deception monsters. His paintings are brimming with symbolism, luring the viewer into his unique game of riddles.

In his 2015 solo show “Space Wasabi”, ATI again brought these monstrous characters into his nonsensical narratives, with an added blend of social critique and colorful fables. With a surprise bang of energy, reminiscent of Sh u ji Terayama’s tale of a boxing match, a song of the Blues charged with blood and sweat suddenly turns into a pink bubblegum fight between cute girls. AS you stroll through the exhibition space, you slowly enter the artist’s imaginative universe.

ATI’s work reflects 80’s kids in Taiwan, influenced by television, computer games and cinema, as well as the dual thought processes of Taiwanese culture and foreign influences, which brought about a possibility of artistic mutation that does not necessarily have any nutritious values.
