善的意志會狩獵

 

「無身體女人的雙重性 —— 模仿經典的女性形象,同時紀念它的失敗。」

此次展覽以繪畫、影像拼貼的方式捕捉一種矛盾的感性,這種感性不斷疊集中於眼睛上,呈現在看似無關卻又微妙地令人不安的圖像中。蘇珊.桑塔格(Susan Sontag)在《坎普筆記》中將坎普描述為一種複雜藝術感性的特定模式,並引用了幾個被認為是標準坎普的事件,其中之一是「在沒有女性伴侶的情況下觀看非色情電影」。在此孤獨的狀態被用來區分藝術和色情,在荒謬、俏皮無禮和嘲弄嚴肅之間滑動。如果說早餐麥片的發明可以抑制青少年手淫,一個走進美術館的人可以輕鬆地充滿智慧,社群媒體自動辨識乳頭影像的審查功能,卻讓野蠻的本質變得虛情假意。藝術家畫中的人物不是真實的人——而是根據蒐集的圖像想像出來的。她們既熟悉又神秘,邀請觀者將自己的感官經驗與之連結。

她將圖像作為一種自我反省和宣洩的工具,將內在精神、世界構建和網路交織在一起,以荒謬作為作品中不可避免的裝飾。她關注大眾媒體描繪人物的方式,特別與受到窄化的性別角色有關。

 

 


• Good Will Hunting •
The exhibition uses painting and image collage to capture a contradictory sensibility that is constantly superimposed and concentrated on the eyes, presenting it in seemingly unrelated yet subtly disturbing images. Susan Sontag, in Notes on Camp, describes Camp as a specific mode of complex artistic sense, citing several events that are recognized as standard Camp, one of which is "watching a non-pornographic movie without a female companion."

The solitary state is used to separate art and erotism, slipping between a borderline that borders on ludicrous, playful propriety and a mockery of seriousness. If the invention of breakfast cereal can curb teenage masturbation, and a person walking into an art gallery can be lightly filled with intelligence, the censorship of social media that automatically identifies images of nipples has made the essence of barbarism hypocritical.

wen gum gum uses the image as a tool for self-introspection and outlets, interweaving inner spirituality, the world, and the internet, with absurdity as an inevitable adornment to the process of making the work. She is concerned with the way in which mass media portrays characters, particularly in relation to the narrowing of gender roles. The figures in gum’s paintings are not real people – she creates them from found images and her own imagination. Both familiar and mysterious, they invite viewers to project their own interpretations, and raise important questions of identity and representation.
