新闻稿

大卫·柯丹斯基画廊荣幸推出贝蒂·伍德曼(1930-2018)个展“阴影与剪影”(Shadows and Silhouettes),呈现艺术家的绘画和雕塑作品。这是在艺术家去世后柯丹斯基画廊为其举办的首次个展。展览展出伍德曼创作于2008年至2016年间的作品,聚焦于艺术家整个创作生涯中最为核心的主题和形式问题——对负空间的创造性使用,容器造型的二维和三维表现,以及容器和人体形象的拼接组合。展览将于2019年6月27日星期四正式开幕,展期至8月24日。开幕酒会将于6月27日晚6-8点举办。

在长达50多年的职业生涯中,贝蒂·伍德曼彻底改变了粘土和釉料在当代艺术中的使用。她的作品极具多样性,展现了各种各样的主题和灵感,而贯穿其整个创作生涯的是持续不断的好奇心和活力,这使她成为她所处时代最重要、最独特的美国艺术家之一——尤其是考虑到她使用的主要媒介所处的边缘地位。伍德曼将现代主义语汇与全世界各种各样的艺术、建筑和设计元素融汇交织,用艺术批评家彼得·施杰尔达(Peter Schjeldahl)的话说,她的艺术“超越了原创性,并到达了自成一格的高度。”

“阴影与剪影” 收录了伍德曼在她生命的最后十年里创作的12件作品,勾勒出她创作生涯中这一最激进阶段的轮廓。展览将各种作品并置呈现,绘画和雕刻的形式被不断重复和颠倒,使物体轮廓分割出的负空间再次成为画布上的图画或物体上的釉面本身。这些作品包含了经典的底座雕塑,如二联画《他的和她的花瓶:静物画》(His and Hers Vases: Life Drawing,2008)——倾斜站立的女性裸体被以黑白两色绘制在细长或宽扁的花瓶上;而《阿兹特克陶瓶和地毯:玛丽安娜》(Aztec Vase & Carpet: Mariana,2015)则表现出反复的立体主义派风格,在画布“基底”和动态的四翼容器的表面上,一系列绘画和釉面构图组合出明暗交替的正方形等图案。

对伍德曼而言, 绘画和雕塑所描绘的空间在持续不断的进行着对话。这些对话可能是和谐的、刺耳的、幽默的、高亢或诗意的,这取决于它们的语境。2011年的大尺寸绘画作品《教堂》(The Chapel)采用了陶瓷浮雕元素,它体现了后一种模式:耀眼的白色釉面平面陶瓷元素被布置在墙面上,拼合出由多部分组成的花瓶形态。作为基底的画布以黑色为背景,上面涂有白色的有力的笔触。画面最上端三分之一处的三维立体构图,颇具戏剧性地将二维表面的视觉张力凸显出来。其中,一个鲜红色釉面的容器被置于白色架子上,它和另一组浮雕物件悬置在由浓郁的红色地面和黄色墙壁组成的房间幻影中。

诸如此类的作品反映了伍德曼对建筑图像日益大胆的使用,她充分利用了这些元素所提供的丰富视角和情感共鸣。《夏日茶会》(Summer Tea Party,2015-16)便是另一例证。这件作品展现了充满喜悦之光和轻盈心态的室内场景,它被分为两个主要部分。占据着画布下方大部分空间的是一幅描绘了被蓝色格子布覆盖的醒目的倾斜桌面的绘画;贴在它上面的陶瓷展现了盘子、罐子和一篮子水果。这些稀奇古怪的物件引诱出一种神秘感——特别是五个无釉陶瓷形式在一扇画窗上排列成类似栏杆的形状,而它们之间的负空间则呈现出容器的形态。这些视觉元素打破了伍德曼建立的——用可辨识的图像和展现真实世界“图景”的陶瓷——富有弹性的视觉逻辑,它们以幽灵般的存在玩味和挑战着纯粹的抽象形式。

而在伍德曼的其他作品中,最引人注目的便是从雕塑和绘画中一跃而起的人体形态。在 上世纪70年代,伍德曼试图超越功能陶瓷的局限,并开始探索——以及彻底打破——容器与人体之间的典型关联。她对物件、画在花瓶上和周围的图像展开想象,并像安排舞台上的演员一样布置它们。每件作品都成为一出家庭剧(或喜剧),其叙事借由色彩、形状、纹理和图案进行讲述。在伍德曼职业生涯的后期,这些叙述更加趋于怪诞——尤其是在绘画作品中,三维容器的剪影会在其背后的画布上反复出现。在《星期二午后》(Tuesday Afternoon,2016)中,这中视觉效果成为了作品中心。一个白色釉面容器立于地面,它的把手像是模特摆出的姿态;画布上,一个形态相似的半透明图象在空中盘旋,就像容器梦想着自己在充满阳光的平行现实中飞行。

 贝蒂·伍德曼近期个展的举办机构包括:上海K11艺术基金,上海(2018);伦敦当代艺术学院,英国(2016);马里诺·马里尼博物馆佛罗伦萨,意大利(2015);加丁纳博物馆,多伦多,加拿大(2011);意大利罗马的美国学院(2010);皮蒂宫和波波里花园,佛罗伦萨,意大利(2009);丹佛艺术博物馆,科罗拉多州(2006);纽约大都会艺术博物馆(2006)。她近期和即将参加的群展包括:“关于混杂的学问:1972-1985美国艺术中的图案与装饰”,洛杉矶当代艺术博物馆(2019年即将开幕);“少让人厌烦:极繁主义艺术和设计”,波士顿当代艺术博物馆(2019年即将开幕);“图案、装饰与犯罪”,Le Consortium当代艺术中心,第戎,法国(2019);“我的房间:1950年至今艺术家的室内绘画”,弗吉尼亚大学法拉林艺术博物馆,夏洛茨维尔(2018);利物浦双年展(2016);“过家家”,布鲁克林美术馆(2012);“后现代主义:1970-1990风格与颠覆”,维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆,伦敦(2011)。伍德曼的作品永久收藏于全世界五十多个公共收藏系列,其中包括:阿姆斯特丹市立博物馆,荷兰;惠特尼美国艺术博物馆,纽约;洛杉矶艺术博物馆;华盛顿美国国家美术馆等。
