以关注文化冲突主题的大型作品而闻名的国际当代艺术家徐震®,将于3月在澳大利亚国立美术馆呈现其在澳洲的首次大型个展。


由澳大利亚国立美术馆与悉尼白兔收藏联合策划,“徐震®:永生 VS 进化”展示了艺术家从早期的录像到近期的纪念碑式的大型雕塑等作品。此次展览还将是作品《“Hello”》(2018-19)的首次国际亮相 --- 一件造型如同蛇-柯林斯柱式的庞大自动雕塑作品,注视和跟踪着步入展厅的观众。

展览将于3月14日开幕,展出14件作品,并将于8月呈现作品《只要一瞬间》(2005/2020)的一系列表演。作为中国年轻一代艺术家的领袖,徐震®多元并蓄的作品检视了在全球权力分配中艺术和文化的角色。


“作为这一代中的杰出艺术家,徐震®积极应对着全球化对中国和世界的影响。他巧妙地将文化形式与同等的挑衅和幽默相结合,揭示了文化之间的断层,并提出了共同生活的新方式,” 澳大利亚国立美术馆馆长尼克·梅泽维奇(Nick Mitzevich)说道。

澳大利亚国立美术馆的统筹策展人彼得·约翰逊(Peter Johnson)提到,艺术家对全球化如何与围绕着身体、异化、贸易、控制和文化商品的观念的相互作品非常感兴趣,这使得徐震在2009年成立了没顶公司,一家如同工厂的文化制作公司。


“2013年,没顶公司推出了徐震®品牌,连接了艺术天才的浪漫观念,和通过艺术与商业的结合来探索新的表达的可能性,” 约翰逊先生说道。


徐震®说在中国人们对艺术和商业的关系感到焦虑,但他认为这创造了新的可能性。“现在大多数事情都是商业的,所以创立一个公司在某种程度上解决了艺术和商业之间的冲突。公司本身以一种神奇的方式将这些方面结合在一起。”他说道。

在其首次在中国境外展出的最新作品《"Hello"》中,徐震®将焦点转向了随着不同文化的相遇而出现的扭曲观念。

“我用了一种传统的物件,然后以某种方式对其进行更新,”他说道。“这很有趣,因为在西方,这样的立柱会被用在法院和银行等官方建筑里,而在中国,它们通常出现在公共澡堂前,或者在你可以唱卡拉OK的地方。”


徐震®说,其祖国的辽阔是他庞大作品的灵感之一,比如《欧洲千手古典雕塑》(2014)与欧洲古典雕塑相似,同时覆盖了一种多臂神相的东方宗教形象。“我被这些事物所吸引,因为它们关于权力的态度和不同社会的价值观,”他说道。


徐震®作品于2020年3月14日至9月13日在澳大利亚国立美术馆展出。

International contemporary artist XU ZHEN® – famous for his large-scale works exploring the collision of cultures – will present his first major solo Australian exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia in March.


Curated by the National Gallery of Australia in partnership with the White Rabbit Collection, Sydney, "XU ZHEN®: ETERNITY VS EVOLUTION" showcases the artist’s work from early videos to more recent monumental sculptures. The exhibition will also celebrate the international debut of “Hello” 2018-19 – a Corinthian column-like snake that watches and follows visitors as they move through the gallery.


Opening on 14 March, the exhibition will be made up of 14 works, as well as a series of performances of In Just a Blink of an Eye 2005/2020 in August. A leader among China’s younger generation of artists, XU ZHEN®’s eclectic works examines the role of art and culture in the distribution of global power.


“A leading artist of his generation, XU ZHEN® grapples with the implications of globalisation, not just in China, but around the world. He deftly combines cultural forms with equal parts provocation and humour, exposing the fault lines between cultures and suggesting new ways of living together,” National Gallery of Australia Director Nick Mitzevich said.


Co-ordinating curator Peter Johnson, from the National Gallery of Australia, said the artist was interested in how globalisation intersected with ideas around the body, alienation, trade, control and the commodification of culture, which saw him establish the MadeIn Company, a factory-like cultural production corporation, in 2009.


“In 2013, MadeIn Company launched the brand XU ZHEN®, skewering the romantic notion of artistic genius and exploring new possibilities for expression through the combination of art and business,” Mr Johnson said.


XU ZHEN® said people in China were anxious about the relationship between art and business but he felt it created new possibilities. “Most things are a business nowadays so the fact of creating a company, in a way, solves the conflict between art and business. The company itself brings together these aspects in a magical way,” he said.


In his latest work, “Hello”, being exhibited outside of China for the first time, XU ZHEN® turns the spotlight on twisted perceptions that emerge with the meeting of different cultures.


“I’ve used a traditional thing and renewed it in some way,” he said. “It’s interesting because, in the west, such columns would be used in official buildings such as courthouses and banks, whereas they most often appear in front of public baths in China, or places where you can sing karaoke.”


The scale of his homeland, XU ZHEN® says, is one of the inspirations for his colossal works, such as the European Thousand-Armed Classical Sculpture 2014, which has the familiarity of classical European sculptures overlaid with eastern religious imagery of a multi-armed deity. “I’m drawn to such things because of what they say about power and what is valued in different societies,” he said.


XU ZHEN® is on display at the National Gallery of Australia from 14 March until 13 September 2020.
