About this event

藝術家葉建邦將舉辦其個展「暗箱覆寫」。展覽由周麗珊策展,呈獻葉氏過去一個月在WMA Space 駐留的創作成果。一系列的新作沿用實體報紙為創作媒介,葉氏透過閱讀、篩選、編撰和整合過去六年所搜集的新聞圖片和資訊,編寫出一套無規可循的敍事系統,驅使觀者自行詮釋作品。報章上的文字與圖像在葉氏的手中被分離和消除,宏大的敍事變得零碎,昔日被標題淹沒的細節被放大,填補了新聞中不帶感情色彩的陳述。覆寫的「覆」,既是反覆出現於報紙上的視覺元素、重複拼貼雷同的符號,更是近乎顛覆原意、更具輪廓的真實。在訊息無處不在,卻也處處不在的年代,以消失的話語,空白的歷史作為手段,也許才能映照出思想的自由。

WMA is delighted to present ‘Overriding the Light of Day’, a solo exhibition by artist Elvis Yip Kin Bon and curated by Chloe Chow. The exhibition presents the fruition of Yip’s month-long residency at the WMA Space. In this series of new works, Yip utilises newspapers as the creative medium; through reading, extracting, writing, and compiling news imagery and information collected in the past six years, Yip crafts an open narrative system that encourages viewers to conduct their own interpretations. In his creative process, newspaper texts and images are deliberately removed and erased, thereby fragmenting grand narratives, magnifying previously precluded details, and thus filling the sentimental gaps in existing news rhetoric. The ‘over-’ in overriding refers to the recurring visual elements in the news, the analogous symbols collaged together, and also the vivid realities that subvert earlier meanings. In a time when information is everywhere but nowhere, lost words and blank histories are perhaps the liminal creative space where the freedom of thought could be found.
