此次藝博展出將以台灣藝術家陳雲、賴威宇、邱承宏、李承亮、金˙提爾來詮釋藝術圖鑑概念中「占星學家」的角度。「占星術」(astrology) 起源於三千年前,原是用來預測君王與國家的運勢,而後將一般百姓也納入占卜對象,從星象運行的圖像解構,透析出集體中的共有與感通以及個體性中的諸多命定,誘發人們對於未知領域的渴求、盼望。然而面對生活中的許多不可遇與渴求間的矛盾,儼然成為一種觀天地萬物的修行,走在追尋自身信仰的路上。藝術家擁有著感受靈動的體質,懷抱著浪漫的最高態度與冒險精神,引領我們踏上一段奇幻旅程。

“All men have the stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all these stars are silent. You–you alone–will have the stars as no one else has them–”

In 2016, YIRI Arts used the concept of an “Illustrated Encyclopedia of Art” as a uniting theme and inspiration for the curation of its exhibitions, systematically connecting the artists it represents. The Encyclopedia includes botanists, anthropologists, zoologists, astrologers, archaeologists and others in an interdisciplinary exploration of various perspectives, providing multiple lines of thought and enriching the medium of visual art.

This exhibition features Taiwanese artists Chen Yun, Lai Wei-yu, Chiu Cheng-hong, and Li Cheng-liang, accompanied by Guim Tio of Catalonia. Together, they interpret the entry on “Astrologist” in the Encyclopedia. The roots of Astrology can be found 3000 years ago, originally as a way for kings to predict the fate of their nations. Gradually, everyday people became subjects as well, as interpretation of constellations above for glimpses of the future and destiny awakened a hunger for knowledge of the unknown. Faced with the contradiction between desire and fulfillment, we can interpret this as a path of self-cultivation guided by the stars. Artists are sensitive by nature, blessed with adventurous spirit and idealized perspectives, guiding us on a fantastic journey.
