Bluerider ART 繼推出一系列代理當代雕塑家,包括斯洛伐克Stefan Papco、德國Willi Siber、荷蘭Reinoud Oudshoorn,各自以金屬、土、木、鋼、鐵等多樣媒材,表達其獨特社會學、空間環境,以至形而上精神等創作理念,將再於2002年2月開春首檔,於Bluerider ART 台北·敦仁,舉辦德國雕塑家Angela Glajcar 紙的大型雕塑展 ‘Terforation’ 「紙的顛覆與構築」,展出藝術家自2015年起,以紙做為雕塑主題的 ’Terforation’ 系列。‘Terforation’ 一字源自拉丁文的組合:Terra 土地、Foramen孔,透過紙的裂孔表現光影與空間關係。此次個展的主要作品,包括一件長達六米、由二件三米紙雕組合而成的作品,自展場正中懸吊、懸掛的紙張連續重疊,並撕裂其中部分區塊,撕裂痕跡通過層層疊疊的光線折射,在紙邊緣及表面上產生了戲劇性的光影效果,紙張邊緣線條相對銳利,與內部撕裂的空間產生了強烈的衝突感,和動人的韻律感,另外包括9件中小不同尺幅單一無版次作品,展現多樣型態紙雕塑,由藝術家現場組裝創作。

紙,在繪畫史中通常作為載具,紙的作品總以平面視角觀看、並創造虛構的透視視角。紙當然也可作為雕塑的材料,畢卡索就曾巧妙運用紙結合線稿做立體雕塑,作品 Head of a Woman, Mougins (1962)。Angela Glajcar 則是直接讓紙作為雕塑材質,顛覆傳統柔軟認知,讓它擁有光影變化、空間節奏及重量。在雕塑的意義上,極簡主義(Minimalism)將型態或色彩純粹化,藝術家 Donald Clarence Judd (1928-1994)在 1965 年所發表的概念特定物件(Specific Object),便將型態或色彩影響降低至最極限,作品非繪畫也非雕塑,而是特定物體,呈現作品「此時此刻、存在於此」的當下狀態。Glajcar 的作品,使用單一材質、單色的紙,突出紙的純粹性,而她再進一步顛覆這樣的純粹性,讓造型與空間更多變化,產生觀看的戲劇性效果。當我們對照空間藝術家 Lucio Fontana (1899-1968),在畫布上畫一刀的作品 Concetto Spaziale, Attesa (1965),企圖把平面繪畫及框外空間的界線打破,藉此挑釁觀者對「繪畫—雕塑—空間」的構築、想像與再出發。Glajcar 的雕塑帶給觀者「空洞」的延伸𩐳律,透過精確的撕裂空洞,光線得以進入洞中,觀者看到由光影構築的多重空間,開啟對四度空間的想像。透過紙的顛覆、與空洞的撕裂、構築,意味著一種破壞性,在真實空間留下了傷痕。

德國藝術史學家暨沃爾夫斯堡藝術博物館館長Andreas Beitin 便認為,Glajcar 的作品具有深層的思辨,她對於人類存在的課題提出相反的兩個面向:動態與靜態、美麗與毀壞、光亮與沉重、律動與安靜。因為紙的本質,脆弱卻堅韌,誰能想到平時所翻閱的書本及紙張,可以懸掛在高空、自由地飄浮。撕裂產生的漩渦狀空缺,像是幾何形狀的隧道,毫無止盡地延伸,彷彿冰川或岩層上鋸齒狀的山脊與深邃的洞穴。Angela Glajcar 的作品關乎我們所生活的空間、環境,並展現「紙」在光線、動態、時間、聲音的多種面貌,如此堅韌又如此自由奔放。透過紙的顛覆與構築,作品在此成全超乎現實所有的想像。

 

於紐倫堡美術學院取得藝術學士學位,現居住創作於德國。Glajcar 以紙為創作媒材,顛覆傳統、並透過紙作品本身的質量色系、重新構築光影變化及空間場域氛圍。其作品在許多知名大型公共藝術展出,如:科隆聖彼得大教堂、法蘭克福市文化部、傑克遜維爾當代藝術博物館、美因茨古騰堡博物館等大型場域,展現媒材極大的適應性、及改變空間氛圍的能力。作品永久收藏於美國傑克遜維爾當代藝術博物館、德國威斯巴登博物館、德國美因茨藝術與科學中心和奧地利的漢滕施密特家族等。

曾接受知名英國雕塑家Tim Scott的指導,Angela Glajcar做為一位前衞雕塑家,過去以鋼鐵、木質或玻璃纖維等材料主要創作,近年則專注在使用「紙」 的材質來創作。她的創作理念,除了探索紙這個媒材,具有顛覆傳統及其構築空間的雙重特性,透過紙作品本身,帶來的質量色系、改變空間光影變化及氛圍。她使用特殊紙,跳脫傳統對紙細膩、柔軟的觀念,筆直銳利的邊緣,呈現幾何塊面及延伸性畫面,也讓原有空間創造出新的想像。展出的場域,不只限於美術館等公共空間,也在其它讓藝術物件具有特殊意涵的空間,像是教堂與紀念館,她的作品改變觀者在這些特別空間的觀看方式,產生奇妙的視覺體驗,雖是非宗教性的雕塑,卻能從空間中產生嶄新的視角觀點、令雕塑展現特有的多重能量。同時,紙作為材料,吸收了周圍環境的光與色,因溫濕度產生捲曲,擁有一種暫時性的變化,Glajcar 讓紙自由地飛翔在空間中,綻放它的姿態及溫暖。
