德國哲學家黑格爾(Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel)將藝術總結為三類,去到浪漫型藝術,他預視這種帶有無限主體性的藝術(包括文學)將走到盡頭,要脫變才可繼續發展,這是他有名的《藝術已死》(The End of Art)。

之後羅蘭·巴特(Roland Gérard Barthes)的《作者之死》(The Death of the Author),乃至多媒體世代超文本及互文性的爆發。作者之沒落、讀者之地位提升、文本之無限再演譯及延伸,按這脈絡文學已不再是以其「本相」出現,而是以其「忽略的本相」發展,甚至走向所謂的「消失存在」。

三位藝術家,各自選取一本書籍,試圖將文本與其他藝術型式有機結合。過程中文字被斷章取義甚或消失得一乾二淨,只剩下文學作品無限主體性的延伸。是次展覽是一個探討文學被轉化的過程時,其本質、角色和地位的改變,乃至藝術的圈套、陷阱及審美體驗。

許維強

作品名稱:
散漫地向外望

作品描述:
作品回應卡夫卡於1912年出版的短篇:「散漫地向外望」。作品最後的呈現方式可能是洐生視像,又或者其他媒體;但是次展覽只會展示一幅簡單的草圖,嘗試總結故事中的幾何結構。

藝術家自述:
針對這一篇短篇,已曾出現了很多基於哲學和心理學的解讀;但我只研究故事中的空間結構,以及主人翁、女孩、路過的男人、和太陽光線的彼此關係。

藝術家簡介:
許維強出生及定居香港,曾就讀香港藝術學院及於香港城市大學創意媒體學院修畢碩士課程。其作品曾於本地及世界多個地方展出,包括香港ifva、404電子藝術節、以及米蘭三年展等。許氏同時活躍於歐洲與亞洲的藝術家駐場計劃,包括日本ARCUS駐村計劃。他剛在香港歌德畫廊舉行個人作品展。

嘗試過不同範疇的創作媒介後,許氏現時專注於數碼媒體,例如軟件、遊戲和衍生藝術。他全心發掘新藝術,嘗試創造有別於日常的思維和體驗,但也依然珍惜傳統的美學概念。許氏相信,藝術是時候回到崇高的境界,一個被重新定義的崇高境界。

一個孤獨漫步者的遐想

作品描述:
在城市中的角落閱讀。
在藝術空間中閱讀。
在行為中閱讀。
用十二天閱讀。
每天四小時閱讀。
閱讀,一個人。

藝術家自述:
把藝術空間及城市街角,成為囚禁肉身的囚房,閱讀成為唯一活動,手上的書本成為唯一的書寫工具。在這框架之下,精神及思想會有什麼狀況?

田禮文

作品名稱:
漫長的陳述

作品描述:
《劉霞詩選》是我近年所看過最有感染力的一本書。詩句沉實但有巨大震撼力,是一個挪有怎樣堅韌力和愛的人才能寫出!這次展覽將透過手繪及錄像去詮釋閱後感,及揭露劉霞內在的壓、憶。

藝術家自述:
將詩句碎片化再重現,沒有脈絡但有關連,閱讀時將忽略什麼?

Literature today is no longer "the thing itself", but also about "the ignored thing", or even the "the vanished thing".

This can be referred to the thesis "The End of Art" by the German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. He summed up arts into three forms and stages - from symbolic to classic, and then romantic art form. The infinite spirituality characteristic of romantic art (including literature) will be a major hurdle for the development of art and thus it has to keep changing in order to adapt to a new age of aesthetics.

Moreover, the liberation of literary work from its origins (author) to its destination (audience) can be revealed from Roland Gérard Barthes’ "The Death of the Author", and the unprecedented growth of hypertext and intertextuality in multimedia era. Opening literature up to an apparently infinite possibility of interpretations and extensions.

The works presented in the exhibition are inspired by the books selected by the three artists. By transforming literary text into other art forms, the contexts were misinterpreted and the texts were vanished, only the extension of infinite spirituality remained. Attempt to discuss the changes of the nature, role and status of literature in the aforementioned transformation, and the relevant traps and aesthetic experience of art.

HUI Wai-keung

Title:
Absent-minded Window-gazing

Description:
This work responses Franz Kafka's short story, “Absent-minded Window-gazing”, published in 1912. The final presentation media could be generative video or other form, but only a simple sketch would be presented this time. The sketch tries to summarize the geometry in the story.

Statement:
There are many philosophical and psychological interpretations for this story. However, I only focus on the space constructed within, as well as the relationship between the narrator, the little girl, the passing man, and the sun rays.

Bio:
Hui Wai-keung was born and lives in Hong Kong. He received his MFA from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, and graduated in diploma in Fine Art from Hong Kong Art School. Hui has exhibited locally and aboard, including ifva Awards, 404 Electronic Art Festival, and Milan Triennale. He is also active in artist-in-residency programs that held in Europe and Asia, including ARCUS Project in Japan. He has just had his solo exhibition in Hong Kong Goethe-Gallery.

Have attempted various art forms, Hui Wai-Keung is now focusing on digital media, such as software, game or generative art. Hui is exploring the alternative possibility of art, with a view to expanding horizon of human concepts and experience; but he still treasures the traditional aesthetic values. He believes it is time for art to go back to sublime, but a new definition of sublime.

LAI Chun-ling

Title:
Les rêveries du promeneur solitaire

Description:
Reading at a corner in this city.
Reading at an art space.
Reading as a performance.
Reading in twelve days continuously.
Reading for four hours everyday.
Reading alone.

Statement:
I imagine that my body is imprisoned in an art space or a corner in the city. Reading is the only activity and the book in hand is the only tool for writing out my thought. I want to know what status of my spirit and my mind is presented under this frame.

TIN Lai-man

Title:
Long Statement

Description:
“Liu Xia Selected Poems” is one of the most powerful books I have read in recent years. The poems are silent with great strength that can reveal Liu Xia’s mental toughness and her eternal love for her husband. I’m trying to present my feeling and reveal Liu’s inner pressure and memory through drawings and videos.

Statement:
By fragmenting the poems, what will be ignored through such kind of reconstructed work out of context?
