Grey Bird

灰鳥 Grey Bird|藝術家聯展 Group Exhibition

「親愛的孩子們,在找尋青鳥的路上,你們也要學會去欣賞那些灰色的鳥兒。」­-莫里斯 ·梅特林克著作《青鳥》 (L’Oiseau Bleu, 1908)

BACK_Y伊日後樂園此次兩檔展覽以「青鳥」及「灰鳥」作為棰石憲藏個展及藝術家聯展之策劃主題,寓意藝術的多重樣貌。若青鳥是令眼球舒適,讓人心情愉悅的作品;灰鳥則是刺激眼球,使人反覆思慮的作品。這樣有趣的相映關係,可延伸解讀為人類追求生命中理想的幸福時,付出辛勞、犯下錯誤、經歷磨難時灰暗平淡的過程。

「灰鳥」展出作品以鳥的形貌及其所延伸意涵,呈現視覺舒適的反面,不以直觀的美好吸引目光。令人費解的腳色設定、無意義的重複動作、失真的型態描繪、異物的組裝,是藝術家試圖以多樣媒介,挑戰界線、重塑思想甚至觸及情緒的途徑。

藝術的追求不止於視覺的美好愉悅,幸福亦不再於以達成理想作為唯一途徑,光輝之下必然存在灰暗,透過創作直視不堪、懊悔、無奈,挑戰觀者卸除對於舒適視覺美好的渴求及習慣,才能檢視生命真實樣的可能性貌,窺見灰暗中已存在但不易察覺的美好。

‘As you look for the Blue Bird, dear Children, accustom yourselves to love the grey birds which you find on your way.’ (Maurice Maeterlinck, L’Oiseau Bleu, 1908)

Back_Y presents ‘Grey Bird’, a group exhibition in response to the solo exhibition ‘Blue Bird’ by artist, Kenzo Taruishi. Both exhibitions build on the theme of the book ‘L’Oiseau Bleu’ written by Maurice Maeterlinck, offering viewers the chance to explore the art in its diversity and complexity. If Blue Bird is an artwork that provides comfort and happiness, then Grey Bird is an unsettling art piece that stimulates one’s emotions and provide a reflection on critical thinking. It is a compelling relationship just as when humans pursue their ideal happiness in life during the process: the hassle, the mistakes they make, and the dullness.
