Fiona Ackerman (Canadian, b. 1978)


費歐娜•艾克曼(加拿大,1978年生)深受法國哲學家米榭•傅柯(Michel Foucault)異托邦(Heterotopia)理論的影響,試圖由繪畫解放現實世界的多樣表現型態,透過鏡像反射而繪出的花草圖像詮釋看似自然卻是經人為刻意安排並輔佐線條、色塊與拼貼組合的創作,將想像的視野拋入無窮遠處。

費歐娜•艾克曼畢業於艾蜜莉卡藝術與設計學院(Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design),榮獲加拿大The Kingston Prize當代肖像畫榮譽獎並入圍加拿大國家畫廊年度當代藝術大獎。作品收藏於加拿大理察·艾菲商學院(Richard Ivey School of Business)、蒙特婁銀行(Bank of Montreal)與德國農民銀行(Bankhaus Bauer)等。

Originally from Montreal, Fiona Ackerman is a painter living and working in Vancouver, BC. Since completing her BFA through Concordia and ECIAD, Ackerman has exhibited across Canada and in Europe (London, Berlin, Nuremberg, Munster, Düsseldorf). She was longlisted for the Sobey Prize in 2015 and received an honourable mention for the Kingston Prize for Canadian Portraiture in 2009. Recent projects include a building wrap mural in Vancouver, and a commissioned 10 minute video projection for the Facade Festival (Burrard Arts Foundation) which was projected onto the facade of the Vancouver Art Gallery.
