Lumenvisum – Contrast

May 20 @ 3:00 pmMay 25 @ 7:00 pm UTC+8

Lumenvisum - Contrast

 

Lumenvisum initiated the Artist and Photographer Conversation Series in 2011 to serve as a platform for cross-disciplinary dialogue, each time conjuring a collaborative exhibition as the creative outcome.

“Contrast” is the seventh edition of the Artist and Photographer Conversation Series. In the last half a year, veteran photographer, producer and director Peter Yung and multifaceted visual artist Tam Wai Ping have engaged in deep dialogues on their artistic ideas and practices. Both eminent artists in their own fields, they have found kindred spirits in each other in their sharing towards photography and creative process. In the exhibition, Yung and Tam attempt to demonstrate their own photographic approach over the years through different series of works.

Exhibition period: 20.5 – 25.6.2017
Opening reception: 20.5.2017 (Sat) 5-7pm
Artist’s talk: 20.5.2017 (Sat) 3-4:30pm

About the Artists:
Tam Wai Ping
TAM Wai Ping, born in Hong Kong. Graduated from University of Reading in 1991, and completed his postgraduate study from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College of London in 1995. He serves as an Associate Professor in the Department of Fine Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Tam Wai Ping’s early work “My Real Life Series” explores the definition of reality and records the complexity of individual life, instigating the ideas of “Truth”. Second Reality attempts to exemplify “Real”, which is, the situational difference between “Fact” and “Reality”. In face with the hardships of reality, Dream is a self-experience through observation of the lives of others, and invokes one’s observation towards others and society at the same time. Temple and Life Pilgrimages have been exploring the relationship between “Individual and Land” that attempts an insight into history and modern life, leading to the investigation of modernity in Asian values. The recent interest looks at the relationships between “Text”, “Object” and “Image”, it re-evaluates how art can serve as a cognitive experience.

Tam works in various media, and is notable for his photography, installation and environmental art. His works have been exhibited in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Macau, Japan, South Korea, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Australia, United Kingdom, France and USA.

無論是作為記錄的工具,抑或作為創作媒介本身,攝影在當代藝術領域一直佔有重要地位。藝術家與攝影家對影像各有不同的思考與處理,兩者雖未至於南轅北轍,但當中的距離實值得探索和討論。

光影作坊自2011年起,每年一度舉辦「藝術家與攝影師對話」,每次挑選一位攝影家與一位非攝影為本藝術家作深入對談,藉推動跨界對話,激發不同領域之間的思想與創作交流,同時為香港的藝術發展經驗留下軌跡。「對談展」至今已是第七回舉行,而本年度獲邀進行對話的分別為集攝影家、製片人、導演於一身的翁維銓、及擅長以不同媒介創作的視覺藝術家譚偉平。

兩位各具豐碩成就的藝術創作者,對藝術實踐有不同的執著及關懷。他們經歷超過半年的對話,了解及認識彼此創作生涯,又各自分享對攝影、影像、創作的理解,繼而發展成是次展覽「反差」。觀照翁維銓的紀實攝影作品和譚偉平的觀念攝影作品,將引伸出他們多年來實踐的創作視野及意念、以及自身對攝影意涵的歸納。

展期:20.5 – 25.6.2017
開幕酒會:20.5.2017 (六) 5-7pm
藝術家分享會:20.5.2017 (六) 3-4:30pm

譚偉平
譚偉平,香港出生。1991年畢業於英國雷丁大學,並於1995年畢業於倫敦大學斯萊迪藝術學院之研究院。現任香港中文大學藝術系副教授。

譚氏的早期創作《我的真實生活系列》探索何謂真實,記錄個體生活的原碼;繼而進入現實的場景 —「二度現實」,尋找事實與現實之間的差異境況;面對現實的困境,「大夢」是旁觀他人的體驗,是對他人和社會的觀察。透過「廟」和「浮世」的創作,探討「人和土地」的關係,嘗試對歷史和當代生活的了解,也開始對亞洲「現代性」的研究。近年嘗試想像「文本」、「物件」和「影像」之關係,反思藝術如何作為一種認知的體驗。

譚氏以不同媒介創作,其中以攝影、裝置及環境藝術為主。曾於香港、中國、臺灣、澳門、日本、南韓、菲律賓、斯里蘭卡、澳大利亞、英國、法國及美國等地展出。
