簡介:
Introduction:

著名日本藝術家奈良美智在香港舉行的首個大型個人展覽。展題來自他其中一件畫作《無常人生!》。耐人尋味的語句背後有著甚麼寓意? 在《無常人生!》中,小女孩站在一堆骷髏頭上,她稚氣的臉與代表死亡的象徵,形成諷刺和強烈的對比,教每個人不斷思考生命中的重要問題,重新認識縱然艱苦但短促的生命。奈良美智邀請香港觀眾發揮想像力,與畫對話,進入其藝術世界。為期二十周的展覽展出奈良美智過去二十年的多件作品,包括畫作、素描、攝影、雕塑以及混合媒體裝置,藉此引領我們伴隨奈良美智參與這趟無拘束的「生命之旅」。

Life is Only One: Yoshitomo Nara – the first major solo exhibition of the renowned Japanese artist in Hong Kong. The exhibition title comes from one of Nara’s paintings, Life is Only One! A provocative declaration: “Life is Only One!” But what does it mean? The painting depicts a small girl standing on a pile of human skulls, juxtaposing the symbol of death with her innocent face. It makes us think about life’s big questions and reminds us that life may sometimes be hard, but it is ephemeral. Nara invites Hong Kong visitors to give in to their imagination and engage in a dialogue with his work and his world. The 20-week exhibition presents a rich collection of paintings, sketches, photographs, sculptures and mixed media installations drawn from his extensive oeuvre of the past two decades, this exhibition is an evocative journey into Nara’s open-ended interpretation of life.

奈良美智於1959年在日本青森縣弘前市出生。1987年,他於愛知縣立藝術大學取得碩士學位。翌年,他留學德國杜塞道夫藝術學院 (國立藝術學院),師承A.R.Penck,並取得「大師學生 (Meisterschüler)」頭銜。1994至2000年間,他於科隆定居工作,期間曾於1998年到美國加州大學 (洛杉磯分校) 擔任客席教授,為時三個月。2000年,他回到日本,並在東京定居工作,後於2005年移居栃木縣。

從畫作和素描,到玻璃纖維、陶瓷、青銅等立體作品,以至大型裝置,奈良美智透過描繪小孩和動物,創作出使人印象深刻、吸引世界各地觀眾的作品,為日本當代藝術的佼佼者。

Yoshitomo Nara was born in 1959 and raised in Hirosaki, a small town in Aomori Prefecture in northern Japan. He acquired his Master’s Degree at Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music in 1987 and moved on to Germany to study at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (State Academy of Arts) in 1988. Under A.R. Penck, Nara attained the title “Meisterschüler” (master pupil) and proceeded to work in Cologne from 1994 to 2000. In 1998, Nara taught at the University of California, Los Angeles for three months as a guest professor. The artist returned to Japan in 2000, initially working in Tokyo before moving to Tohigi in 2005.

Working in multiple art forms, including painting, drawing, sculpture in ceramic, bronze and fiber-reinforced plastic, and large-scale installations, Nara uses depictions of children and animals to convey his interpretation of life.
