Imperfect Creation-Debuts in Melbourne 雕塑展在墨尔本亮相

Art can be a lot of things – indulgence, sustenance, a basis of pleasure or disappointment, and a trigger that affects our minds and ultimately how we communicate with people around us. The power of art transcribes founding ideas and expands the originals to launch a creatively neutral sphere for admiration whether it is of beauty or aberration.

艺术可以是任何东西– 耽溺,隽永,一抹愉悦,又或一丝失望,此外还可以是释放出灵感的按键,以及与人交流沟通的方式。艺术的能力无远弗届,它让你捕捉灵感,然后进一步将之推展至创意空间,全然凭借自己的心意,从心所愿,无论美丑。

‘IMPerfect Creation’ is award-winning Asian contemporary sculptor Ch’ng Huck Theng’s first solo bronze sculpture exhibition in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition presents 11 timeless bronze works created by Ch’ng, each carrying its own unique story, meaning and philosophy inspired by different people and events surrounding the artist.

“IMPerfect Creation”是获奖无数的亚洲当代雕塑艺术家庄学腾于澳洲墨尔本举办的首个个人铜像雕塑展。展览一共展出11件由庄学腾创作的经典铜雕,每一件作品均蕴含一段独一无二的故事,意涵与哲学,全来自于创作者从周遭事物所获得的体悟。

Through this exhibition, Ch’ng introduces a new perspective to the concept of beauty and the grotesque; in which beauty cannot be seen if one cannot identify ugliness. The artist’s ‘Ugly’ bronze sculptures depict current events that encourage the public to look deeper into their hearts and souls when faced with issues.

Ch’ng is currently one of the leading artists and sculptors in Malaysia. Year 2016 marks his 22-year career as a successful artist – setting an artistic precedent on the international platform and to those who recognise his progressive work. His works are not only collected in Malaysia but around the world by respected institutions, which include the National Visual Art Gallery Malaysia, Singapore Art Museum, Hong Kong University Museum & Gallery, Shanghai Art Museum and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) in Paris.

透过这次展览,庄学腾为美丽与丑陋赋予全新定义;“美丽”将不会存在,如果一个人无法判断美丑。庄学腾透过“Ugly”铜像向大众传递一道信息,那就是别忘了深入事物的内心与灵魂,而非仅仅关注表面。

庄学腾是享有知名度的马来西亚艺术与雕塑家。今年2016年是他踏入艺术界的第22个年头,如今的他俨然是一位享誉海内外的艺术先锋。他的作品不仅为国内艺术迷珍藏,艺迹甚至遍布全世界,除了马来西亚国家视觉艺术画廊以外,连新加坡艺术博物馆,香港大学博物馆与画廊,上海艺术博物馆和巴黎国立美术学院也藏有他的作品。

Ch’ng’s bronze creations have been hammered off in local and international auction houses, attracting high-end buyers and setting impressive sales records. The artist’s works were also selected to be presented as national gifts to countries including China, London and Melbourne.

Rupert Myer AO, the Chair of the Australia Council for the Arts has been invited to be Guest of Honour to officially inaugurate the exhibition. The highly anticipated exhibition is set to be held at SpACE@Collins, Level 1, 278 Collins Street from 20 October to 12 November 2016, weekday 11am to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 3pm.

庄学腾的铜像作品在国际拍卖会上向来是炙手可热的拍卖品,吸引了许多买家热烈竞标,屡屡创下成交新纪录。除此以外,他的作品也是国家赠礼,曾经在政府官方活动上,被赠送予来自中国,伦敦与墨尔本的访问使者。

澳洲艺术委员会主席Rupert Myer AO被邀请担任此次展览的主礼嘉宾。展览地点为SpACE@Collins一楼,展览日期从2016年10月20日至11月12日止,星期一至五11am至5pm,星期六11am至3pm。
