吳觀麟葉立榮 聯展

去年仲夏,我和旅居柏林的藝術家朋友葉立榮,合作參予了一個在外蒙古舉行,由德國藝術策展人籌辦,名為「首屆地景藝術雙年展:蒙古360°」的地景作品展,我們的作品題材及內容,均和人類、環境、現代生活生態、大自然等息息相關,由個人經歷、自身文化、處境出發,對現世人類週遭的環境破壞和失衡,與及大自然規律反應的種種後果,所作出的反思和討論。

今秋,我很榮幸被香港嶺南大學視覺研究系邀請作駐校藝術家,為此我特地邀請葉立榮再一次合作,製作相討了好一陣子的「移山」裝置藝術展覽。

我和葉立榮是中學同學,可說有着共同的起步點:少年時已酷愛中國藝術哲學,學習中國水墨畫,和對當代藝術充滿好奇。我倆都是同一代的人,香港土生土長,居住環境狹窄,生活在都市齷齪擠逼的小空間內,想像及考慮着中國畫和中國藝術哲學中的審美、自然、空間,與及外面不一樣的世界。我倆分享着共同年代中,個人及集體的回憶,我們的文化背景扎根點似乎是相當一致的。後來葉立榮到芝加哥藝術學院修讀,再移居德國,我則一直留在香港。經過長時間的分隔和各自的經歷、成長,然後意外地重逢。從此之後,在不斷的對話和討論中,互相重新發現各自對藝術、人生、大自然,種種我們不約而同重視的課題的考慮、看法、着眼點,和藝術表達上的異同,繼而發展出合作的可行性。

是次「移山」裝置藝術展覽,是我們相討蘊釀了好些時候的結果。對我倆來說,它有着象徵意義:我們覺得,人的現實不易改變,例如香港肆意填海,帶來對生活環境不可恢復的破壞、全球人類社會的各種災難及困局等;藝術則給予我們在另一層面上一個改變的機會。我們的作品所表達的,面貌和手法可能各異,但在其精神上所,可算是殊途同歸的。
