OLLEH

Artist:Tai Ping

2020.12.12 - 2021.1.12

If language is the murmur of everything that is spoken, Taiping’s works will constantly change its bass vibration in the ears of everyone who enters the exhibition hall.

This phonetic change originates from the occasional and rebellious nature of the artist’s creative practice, i.e., his capture of momentary inspiration and his rebellion against the established paradigm. Through his ingenious nature, Taiping’s works show a sense of blocky division, and when we zoom in to look at these blocky areas, we will find that they are composed of fragments. As viewers, we need to observe and introspect to find difference that makes the fragments exist as what synthesize the continuity of literature.

The presupposition of difference is that Taiping remains a free attitude as an artist. This freedom is not anarchic, reversely, it is freedom governed by norms and criteria. Taiping has no intention of breaking or obliterating the cultural system and symbolic structure regulated by the elite, paradoxically but understandably, he acts through artistic practice, ridiculing the law of the art world like babbling with friends at midnight.

Taiping assumed himself as an object that is experimented on and criticized to satirize the already rigid ideological deception. Thus, he became a kind of simulacre, a kind of existence that is opposite to the image of imitation, which excludes similarities and feeds on differences. The titles of works derived from Pride and Prejudice and Beyond Good and Evil, the totem symbols in the blue and black pictures, and the repetitive “OLLEH” are all contremots that act as imitations and continue arrogating existing orders.

In this methodology, simulacre becomes a cunning means of dismantling paradigm and repetition.

This also just proves that when Taiping deprived the physical content of the old form facetiously and re-enacted in the form of parody is regarded as a failure in the accepted paradigm, this“failure”is a triumph in a manner of post-modernity.

ARCH REVIEW | Making Complicity

When the painting is really close to us, the first thing that appears to our eyes is this Le cimetière marin[1] written by Valéry in 1922. The curators Hu Yihang and Zhang Tingzhi, together with artist Guo Yujian, divided the exhibition “Dangerous Complicity” in the gallery into three chapters with words and symbols: imagination, a plateau, and a theatre.

ARCH REVIEW | Gaze in the Dim Glow

“The Task of Alchemy”, Pocono Zhao Yu’s solo exhibition at Arch Gallery, presents a subtle sense of time traveling. As the title of the exhibition alludes to, it is as if the smelting and mysterious deeds of some spiritual objects. Within the whisper that fluttering outside of time, this enormous task is under the invisible dome of time.

ARCH INTERVIEW | Guo Yujian

Since then, I have tried to let daydream-like imagination seep into the picture, and those earlier, more symbolic images have also been naturally diluted. Perhaps, it is precisely because of the temperament that seems to be infiltrated by the picture and some image contents that are contrary to reality that cause the association like a dream.

ARCH 采访 | 朱湘闽

朱湘闽的作品在愉悦的状态中,凸显了轻盈、弥散的线条与形态,层叠的不同色块和材料之间强调了艺术家自身的意识与感知。画面中直观的力量感,是艺术家对“矛盾和悖论在身体里形成完整的统一“的思考,形象间释放的情绪在思想的过滤与分解后,营造了更有流动性的感官体验。

ARCH REVIEW | 郭宇剑:危险同谋

在看向郭宇剑的作品时,被描绘的总是在流动的状态中,相互间有着联系的密语成为图像回避我们、又逼近我们扑面而来。我们视线内成形在画布上的作品是尚未到来、在过渡中、即将迎接变化,直到感受盈满,它才会把我们推远。

ARCH REVIEW | 在倦意来临时服药

恍惚是我们长时间被某种思维或事物压制后常常落入的状态。在这个状态中,时间如流体般被我们任意搬运、搅动,又或是尽兴逐流。而林舒的作品常常通过对空间的加工让我们对影像中的实体逐渐疏远,以至于被送入一个被剥去嘈杂的心理状态,意识取代了被记忆包裹的身体,从而任意涌动。
