[虛擬博物館 VIRTUAL UMAG] 窯火純青: 香港大學美術博物館藏青釉器 Glazed and Fired: Celadon Ceramics from the UMAG Collection

日期
31/05/2021 (全日) - 31/05/2022 (全日)

Pre-dating the Neolithic period, ceramic wares are some of the earliest man-made objects to integrate science, technology and the arts. With a long history of innovation and craftsmanship, celadon wares have provided a crucial reference point for the study of ceramic production in China. The term ‘celadon’ historically refers to specific types of ceramics coated with a green-coloured glaze. Taking its name from a French literary character best known for his distinctive green attire, some scholars prefer to avoid this arbitrary Western construction and instead apply the term ‘greenware’.

Constant advances in raw material selection, firing techniques and the shaping of forms have enabled celadon ceramics to develop continuously over the past two millennia. The UMAG collection of celadon spans a period of more than fifteen hundred years of celadon’s history, from the early lead-glazed pottery of the Han (漢朝; 202 BCE–220 CE) to the stunning Guan wares of the Song dynasty (宋朝; 960–1279 CE), providing a rich overview of the traditions and transitions of these widely-coveted objects. This virtual exhibition complements the on-site exhibition of the same title, which will be unveiled soon at the Study Gallery in the historic Fung Ping Shan building.

陶瓷器物歷史悠久,在新石器時代前便已開始出現,可以說是最早融合科學、技術和藝術的人造物。而在其悠久的創新和工藝史中,青釉器(Celadon)為中國陶瓷生產的研究提供了重要的參考依據。青釉器泛指塗有青綠釉料的陶瓷器物,而「Celadon」一詞則由法國文學中,一位身穿獨特綠衣的角色的名字衍生而來。一些學者為避免「Celadon」當中隱含的西方建構,而改用「Greenware」一詞。

在原材料的選擇,燒製技術和塑形技巧等方面的不斷進步,使青釉器在過去兩千年中得到持續發展。香港大學美術博物館擁有橫跨超過一千五百年的中國青釉器藏品,從漢代(公元前202–公元220年)的早期綠釉器到宋代(公元960–1279 年)的瑰麗官窯器,讓觀眾得以概觀這些廣受青睞的青釉器物的傳統和演變。這場虛擬展覽是同名實體展覽的增補,而實體展覽即將於歷史悠久的馮平山樓地下「博藝軒」揭幕。
