Bluerider ART 很榮幸邀請資深策展人 Kathleen Goncharov 來台,以「當代壁毯藝術」為主題,展出多位以跨媒材創作聞名之藝術家作品、包括Donald & Era Farnsworth,Alex Katz,Squeak Carnwath,Guy Diehl,Basil Kincaid 等作品

綜觀藝術史,將裝飾壁毯作為媒材是具歷史性與國際性的,根據《荷馬史詩》論述,法老埃及文明已出現壁毯藝術,歷史學者甚至認為雅典帕德嫩神殿內牆掛滿了壁毯。裝飾壁毯的歷史最早可追溯到中國唐朝,尤其明朝更為高峰,也受同時期的歐洲貴族所追捧,市場交易價格媲美天文數字,城堡與宮殿的巨大牆面皆以壁毯裝飾,儼然成為當時的宮廷貴族時尚。

儘管裝飾壁毯曾經歷式微,當畢卡索、米羅、達利、考爾德等現代藝術家在20世紀以壁毯做為創作媒材,壁毯藝術又再次復興。曾投身繪畫、攝影、雕塑、錄像等媒材的藝術家,越來越著迷壁毯藝術的可能性,並開始深入探究。

Donald and Era Farnsworth 法恩斯沃思夫婦(USA)
本次展覽中展出六件作品,精彩融合了中西方藝術傳統文化。他們在源於19世紀緹花紡織工藝上精益求精,結合精細的數位影像處理軟體,使藝術家得以處理更為精巧的細節與幾近無限的色彩,再由比利時的傳統工匠將其作品編織而成。

This exhibition features American artists who are known for work in many media but have also worked with tapestry. The tapestry medium is ancient and international. It was used in Pharaonic Egypt, mentioned in Homer’s Iliad, and some historians believe that tapestries covered the interior walls of the Parthenon. Tapestry first appeared in China in the Tang Dynasty and was especially popular during the Ming period. This was also the same time period when tapestries were most coveted by the aristocracy in Europe. They sold for astronomical sums and covered the vast walls of castles and palaces.

Although the popularity of the medium waned in subsequent years, it was revived in the 20th century when artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Salvador Dali, and Alexander Calder made tapestries. Artists whose work is primarily in painting, photography, sculpture, video, etc. are increasingly fascinated with the possibilities of tapestry and have begun to explore the medium in depth.

Donald and Era Farnsworth, whose work is featured in this exhibition with six magnificent work that pair Eastern and Western artistic traditions, have perfected the jacquard process, a system using a series of perforated cards that was first developed in the 19th century, and combined it with sophisticated digital imaging software that enables artists to work with minute details and an almost infinite palette of colors. Once the image is set the final work is woven by traditional artisans in Belgium.
