Be 40 Mixed-Media Exhibition
「邊渡四十年」混合媒介展覽
Key Visual_A2_extend2-01.jpg

Be 40 is an eclectic collection of mixed-media works by 66 artists who have previously exhibited at the Fringe Club.  For some of the artists, the works recall memories of their first Fringe encounters.

 

The exhibition also includes works commissioned and collected by the Fringe Club from 1982 until now.  It also features recent works by Frog King, the artist we presented in a solo show at the 2011 Venice Biennale.  Be 40 celebrates the conservation of the old Dairy Farm ice depot and its chimeric transformation over the past 40 years into the Fringe Club of today.

 

The key image of Be 40 is appropriated from Hokusai’s famous ukiyo-e print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”, which shows a way of life, revered and cherished – symbolised by Mount Fiji and the long fishing boats – under imminent threat.  It portrays a moment of great beauty before annihilation by forces beyond human control.  Despite everything, the human spirit still soars like the sea eagle high up above.

「邊渡四十年」是一個結集了 66 位曾經在藝穗會展出過的藝術家的混合媒體作品展覽。對一些藝術家而言,這些作品喚起了他們與藝穗會第一次相遇的回憶。

 

是次展覽亦包括了藝穗會由1982年至今的委約作品及收藏品。此外,也展出了蛙王的近作,我們曾於2011 年威尼斯雙年展為他策劃了一個個展。「邊渡四十年」更是慶祝藝穗會在過去40年間為保育舊牛奶公司倉庫所作出的努力及其轉變,造就了今天的藝穗會。

 

「邊渡四十年」的主視覺設計借用了日本浮世繪畫家葛飾北齋的木刻版畫 ——《神奈川沖浪裏》,它展示了一種受人尊敬和珍視的生活方式——象徵著富士山和長長的漁船——面臨著迫在眉睫的威脅。它描繪了在人類被無法控制的力量徹底摧毀之前的美麗時刻。儘管如此,人的精神仍然像海鷹一樣展翅高飛。
