Geoffrey Farmer,1967年出生于不列颠哥伦比亚的鹰岛,现主要以温哥华为据点,是一位加拿大艺术家。Farmer曾就读于温哥华的Emily Carr艺术设计学院以及旧金山艺术学院,他的代理画廊是温哥华Catriona Jeffries画廊。

艺术实践

Geoffrey Farmer的创作使用了多种材料和元素,包括绘画、摄影、录像、雕塑、表演,以及即兴使用现场材料。Farmer的作品提供了一种非常微妙的极少主义与后极简主义艺术经验与遗产,极简主义着重于让观众在观看现场时能逐渐感受到强烈的感觉,Farmer的作品注重在美术馆里的现场经验。后极简主义展现的是一种简约的精致,同时它强调在画廊语境中创造出艺术品的意义。Farmer加强了这两个传统的关注点,集中于自身意义的自然偶发,特别强调那种脆弱和难以捉摸的性质。

偶然性在Farmer的作品中被扩展成一种策略,去发明和培养一种自我发射。然而极简主义艺术家比如唐纳德·贾德、Dan Flavin,用艺术评论家Michael Fried的话来说就是戏剧化的画廊行为经验,Farmer运用剧场和表演风格逐步推进和建构寓意,这让他进入了国际趋势中,进入所谓“不需要一个舞台剧去给出意义的戏剧化装置艺术”。例如,Farmer的《驼背组件》(2000年7月在泰特美术馆)使用了一个定制的坚硬泡沫外壳,插入到巴黎圣母院钟楼道具房子里。Farmer在展厅里提供了一套组件让观众去解释,在这个过程中,他以自己“艺术家”的身份,继续添加和变换人们的看法。在《为每架客机使用一个艺术品》(2006年)中,Farmer提供了一个视频来展示自己的工作,他在夜里当展览关闭时去改变装置,明确表示展览在“过程之中”,他确保“他的作品是在进程之中并且是不稳定的”。

杰弗里(Geoffrey Farmer)作品展开幕



Exhibition View

杰弗里(Geoffrey Farmer)作品展“熏肉不是唯一一件吊在绳子上加以处理的事物(Bacon’s Not The Only Thing That Is Cured By Hanging From A String)”日前在Casey Kaplan画廊开幕。这是杰弗里在美国的首次个展。

杰弗里因其在展览过程中变化多端的艺术表现而闻名于世。他的装置由各种不同的材料组成,其中还涉及到各种不同的、扎根于研究调查以及对场地的反映之中的方法论。他通常采用充满诗意的叙述方式来创作概念性作品,并将他对艺术作品的物质性生产的兴趣与心理学理论和戏剧化的表现结合到一起。



Exhibition View

在这次展览中,杰弗里主要创作了一件新的系列作品:13盏散发着光亮的灯柱点缀在整个画廊空间中。这些灯柱的形态介于建筑物和具有人的形象的事物之间:每一个灯柱都由自然艺术品、集成照片、支柱以及光源组成。与这一系列一同展出的一件大型的蒙太奇式壁画“Pulling Your Brains Out Through Your Nose”,这件作品则借鉴了埃及人在制作木乃伊时,取出脑部物质以保存尸体的过程。大量剪切自各种印刷品上的图片从切断的挂衣钩上悬吊下来,直接插入了画廊的整面墙壁之中。在作品“Lost Dogs and Half-Eaten Apples”中,杰弗里在一张低矮的桌子上展示了一个较小的人形作品。这件作品主要是由粘土、金属丝、灯以及一些现成物品制作而成的,这些类似于初步设计模型的作品看起来就好像是一些不寻常的木偶或是Kachina娃娃一样。
