駐館創作計畫

來自波士頓的美國藝術家Mary Sherman(瑪莉雪曼),將於5月11日起至7月13日擔任關渡美術館的駐館藝術家。Mary Sherman主持位於波士頓的跨文化交流機構,並曾企劃國際性的跨文化計畫,作品在全世界跨地域性的進行展出,並形成據點,包括目前正在關渡美術館永久性展出的「磁磚計畫」。

Mary Sherman 對於平面繪畫上堆疊的物理性與其產生的幻覺能力感到著迷。她期待能探索在繪畫感官與3D電子科技的機械調性兩者之間的界限,去創作出能激發觀者繪畫新方向的抽象作品。她每次的展覽都像是特定場域、觀眾介入裝置的觀念性跳板,而她的作品反映著觀者對應其空間本身的歷史性、物質性、精神性之經驗。她的想法逐漸產生需與異領域合作的技術需求,並激發延展藝術的可能性。

Mary Sherman於駐館期間將舉行「跨領域藝術工作坊-Here, There and Everywhere」,帶領北藝大不同專長領域的學生,嘗試跨領域的創作計畫。其發展成果將於7月11日至8月31於本館展出。


Program Proposal

American artist Mary Sherman's residency at the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts begins the 11th of May and ends the 13th of July. Mary is the director of TransCultural Exchange in Boston. She has executed many international cross-culture projects, which now dot the world landscape, including "The Tile Project," here at the Kuandu Museum.

Mary Sherman is fascinated with the physicality of paint – as opposed to its illusionary qualities. In her work, she explores the tension between painting's sensuality and the mechanical, hard-edged qualities of electronic technology and 3-dimensional form to create abstract works that push the definition of traditional painting into new directions. Each of her exhibitions becomes a conceptual springboard for a site-specific, often viewer activated work. Her works are created to respond to the historical, physical and/or psychological space in which they are experienced. Frequently, she works collaboratively – both to find the necessary expertise for her works and to continue to stimulate new ways of understanding and expanding upon the possibilities available to art.

During her stay at KdMoFA Mary Sherman will lead TNUA students from numerous disciplines in a workshop entitled "Here, There and Everywhere." The workshop will conclude with an exhibition of the class' collaborative works, opening July 11th and running through August 31st.
