內容簡介

比利時藝術家Michael Borremans近20年來頃力創作了同時讓觀者著迷又不安的作品。如同藝評家Laura Cumming在《觀察家日報》上所寫的:「Borremans的天賦是用所有的人物、場景與各種不同的可能引誘你,並使你為之著迷。」他的作品綜合了過去藝術大師的技巧,但是在構圖配置與繪畫敘事上卻與傳統大相逕庭,悖離人們的預期,使得他的作品有一種難以描述的特質。他所追求的是建構出看似單純,但畫中人物卻處在時間敘事之外的繪畫作品,這是西方傳統繪畫較少展現的部分。

本書是藝術家於2015年在倫敦的David Zwirner畫廊首次展覽的紀錄,也是10年來在這個城市的第一個個人展,包含了他最新系列中32幅大小尺寸的畫作,內容主要是穿著黑色長袍的無名人物,不論是單人或群體,在如畫家工作室一般單調的背景當中,展演神秘的動作。這些人擺弄帶著象徵語言的姿勢,不管是單獨一人或與群體共舞,他們有時手持火炬,有時裸露下半身,遮住的臉展開了曖昧敘事的可能性,如同空白的畫布等著被建構出意義。這些空洞的人物體現出不斷飄移的各種意義,成為人類景況的典型樣貌,帶著嘲諷、悲劇性與幽默感,最後集結出所謂的矛盾性質。

For nearly two decades, Belgian artist Michaël Borremans has created an ambitious and mesmerizing oeuvre that continues to simultaneously fascinate and unsettle viewers. As the art critic Laura Cumming writes in The Observer, “Borremans’s gift is for snaring you, enthralling you with all sorts of characters, strange scenarios and possibilities.” His works display a concentrated dialogue with previous art historical epochs, yet their unconventional compositions and curious narratives defy expectations and lend them an indefinable character. Painting has remained central in his pursuit to construct a deceptively simple visual world where figures often seem to elude the passage of time. 

Michaël Borremans: Black Mould documents the artist’s first exhibition at David Zwirner, London in 2015 and his first solo presentation in the city in ten years. This intimately scaled catalogue, which has been designed by the artist in collaboration with Kim Beirnaert, includes thirty-two small- and large-scale paintings from his new series, most of which feature anonymous, black‐robed characters. Alone or in groups, they perform mysterious acts within monochromatic spaces reminiscent of an artist’s barren studio. Seemingly behaving according to a symbolic language of their own, they pose alone or interact in communal dances, with some figures holding torches and others exposed naked from the waist down. Their facelessness opens up ambiguous narrative possibilities, like empty canvases with which to construct meaning. Like archetypes capable of embodying shifting meanings, the blank figures become a mold for the human condition, at once satirical, tragic, humorous, and above all, contradictory.
