Field of Dreams


白日成夢之所
Field of Dreams | 陳松志 Chen Sung-Chih

「我如同一位悠然時序中的夢遊者,在靜謐的時空中把眼前世界翻轉了幾遍,看似有些反常,但端看其中竟增添了幾許臆想的美妙。」

陳松志在過去的創作中建造了無數生活中令人觸動的空間現場。藝術家經常將代表個人生活中熟悉的圖案和材料進行改造,創造出不斷發展的敘事。他的作品是精心安排的組合,並將記憶、儀式和轉變的想法組織在一起。他的裝置現場總是帶有著空間與靜止,往往流露著我們與周圍世界難以捉摸的關係,同時邀請觀眾對神秘的感覺做出反應。這些造型與場景在抽象和具象之間毫不費力地移動,陳松志所帶出的一種無限,那是你必須要親自體會的感應,而且將是不間斷的。

他的作品多以眾多現成物料、室內建材、居家織品構築成別具想像的日常場景。陳松志的國際駐地創作經驗遍及埃及、英國、法國、韓國、美國、日本等地。歷年創作伴隨著藝術家遊走、處身在不同文化環境而有著豐富的展現,他以個人生活中感性蒐集而來的發現,遂而組織成物質在空間、時間中極具多變的景致樣貌,如短篇般的紀載著日常的敘事。

陳松志在這些如同薄膜般的物質表象中(如人造粉末、印花織品、玻璃、地毯、鏡材、食材等)喻意著一個逐漸被錯讀而成的文化(階級)意識。綜觀這些顯而易見的表徵紋理,實則伴隨著理式的經濟生產、媒體傳遞是為一種失真的美感,遂成為我們習以為常的審美規範。藝術家作為一個材質與空間的引渡者,他試圖在這些物質、空間中誘發出一股原初的引力,翻轉出人性豐富的想像,在現實的路徑中突顯著個體意義的強大力量。

他的作品多所將這些「物質膜」化作空間裝置,並作為意義投射的引伸、文化意識的隱喻。陳松志這麼說:「我看待我的創作有點像是在反映著一種『膜』的概念,我的這些透過物質形塑的空間或造型及是希望透過『掀開』、『撕開』來成為一種內外互通的通口,這的膜的概念可能是很隱喻性的,對我來說即便是人、動物或是小到一粒植物種子…這些生命的生成過程,也相同的都有這先行破壞了那層膜,才得以對外面的世界進行有形生命的開始,然而這個開始也就正走向結束的進程。」如果把這些隱匿的『膜』作為看待他的創作基礎,這將會是一個端看著內與外、前與後以至實與空之間不斷翻轉的顛想世界。

在這些藉由材質顛置串接而成的空間裝置中,陳松志以平凡物質建構出獨特的造形疆界,在人性、物性毀落(與再生)的殘存美感之中免除藝術品味下的階級審美。在低限的視覺和風格中探查了某些非視覺元素的形式語言如:氣味(嗅覺)、隱在的身體動能(觸覺)、我們熟悉的聲響(聽覺)恢復著物質自身心理渲染的可能,傳染出觀者輕觸知覺的意圖,喚起潛藏於個體意識中之於低限物質的關切。他的創作往往像是一段物質之於空間、場所的營塑與再造,借引真實的形態樣貌重新改寫我們意識中關於物的藝術敘事。以一種意義無從論起、漫遊期間的事件尋找,透過交互滲入的方式跨越這藝術與生活的無形邊界,解明了某種超越解述認知,純屬人們知覺層次的運轉。在觀者行動、觀念與記憶的擾動之下,連帶出我們集體意識中暗憂的另一面。

Chen Sung-Chih graduated from Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts, with emphasis in mixed media installation. Previous works include mixed creations using ready-made objects. These ready-made life materials are randomly assembled, combined, and transformed in order to present something different from the original rough and cold material quality with a delicately blended complex psychological element. These art creations, therefore, are given warmth and poetic meanings. In the past years, there were several participations in artist-in-residence in international studio and exchange programs in USA, Korea, Britain, Egypt, France, and Taiwan. Previous artworks used to receive 2013 Spirit of Travel–Espace Louis Vuitton Taipei Audition- First Prize, 2012 35 Visual Artist Support Winner, The 12th Visual Arts Prize of Li Chun-shan Foundation, 2004 Taishin Arts Award – Top 7 of Visual Arts, 2008 & 2003 Taipei Arts Award Best-selected, and 2001 S-An Aesthetics Award – Arts Creation Support. There have been individual exhibitions since 2001 and numerous invitations for the participation of important exhibitions in Taiwan. He currently lives and works in Taipei.

Chen Sung-Chih’s past works were all based on this idea, using the language of the material itself to present the sensitive segments of the life that are often ignored. The works are mainly showcased by spatial installation, and large spatial installation works are often in the unit of the common residential space. The works also incorporate the time-sensitive social events to reveal the strong force of rupture and destruction drawn from experiences, as well as subtle collection. Chen Sung-Chih always tries his best to search for human nature in plain life, and for the remaining sense of beauty from ugly objects. This beauty comes from the destruction of natural law, from the residue after consumption, or maybe from the trace after violence…. Its abstracted marvel – memory fragments from daily lives between the form and the meaning reveals the multi contradictory relations of each individual toward the absurd reality.
