安卓藝術將於2015年8月1日至9月5日舉辦漢娜.佩蒂強(Hanna Pettyjohn)個展「時空之網」(A Web of When and Where)。本展也是佩蒂強繼2013年在台灣的首次個展「豐饒之外」,於安卓藝術的第二次個展。我們誠摯邀請您蒞臨8月1日(六)下午3點舉行的開幕茶會,甫獲得菲律賓13藝術家大賞(The 2015 Thirteen Artist Award)殊榮的藝術家亦將出席。

身上流著菲律賓與美國的血液,佩蒂強1983年出生於菲律賓並成長於此,而在成年之後踏上父親的故鄉—美國德州。往復於太平洋兩端的旅程既是探索未知的遠行,亦是尋根的歸鄉之旅,這樣的生命經驗,使得佩蒂強在當代全球離散現象裡刻劃下她個人的足跡,而離鄉與返家,也成為其藝術創作的主旋律。

「時空之網」展覽中,藝術家以「出土」一辭加上不同的英文字母與數字命名作品,暗示著畫面中呈現的衣物作為一種遺跡被重新發掘、理解並加以表現,以提示那曾經發生的故事。而以各種不同質感的衣物作為畫中主角,延續了藝術家在2013年分別在菲律賓與台灣推出的三檔個展「捆綁」、「我們之間的玻璃(鬆綁)」與「豐饒之外」的創作脈絡,不同的是,人物從畫面中缺席了,過往強調的對比如光明與黑暗、潮濕與乾燥、寒冷與溫暖、裡與外等,在新作中已然退位。新作中的大幅油畫描繪了散落於泥土地上的各式衣物,透過精采的筆觸表情,布料、泥土與植物各自展現不同的顏色、肌理與質感,既構成對比鮮明的視覺圖像,似乎也暗喻了當代世界的多元交融。在另一系列小尺幅的畫作裡,佩蒂強進一步聚焦於衣物的局部,她將布料片段自原本的脈絡與環境中抽離,重置這些單獨元素於新的抽象環境,飄浮的布料周圍環繞著波浪般的空氣與褐色的泥土,有如處於一段充滿變動與未知的旅程。而這個被聚焦的片段也像是某種遺跡,提示了那缺席的整體與背後的故事。

生命中擁有兩個中心,佩蒂強說:「旅行讓我在這個世界中找到我的位置,促成自我發掘的旅程。我明白了我將永遠處於離鄉的狀態,且對我而言,家不只是單一的地方。」而關於最新個展,她說:「這是關於兩個地方之間的對話。當我在其中任何一地,我既是在家鄉也是離開的。」離散此一人類歷史中的古老現象或許總與寂寞、苦難、思念與哀傷脫不了關係,如今在佩蒂強的探索與挖掘之下,展現了離散主體所擁有的生產性與創造性,「時空之網」既是一場回視過去的考古,也是望向未來、導向未知的旅程。

Mind Set Art Center is pleased to present “A Web of When and Where”, a solo exhibition by Filipino artist Hanna Pettyjohn from 1 August to 5 September 2015. Pettyjohn is recently awarded with The 2015 Thirteen Artist Award, and this is her second solo exhibition at Mind Set Art Center following the 2013 successful show “Witherland”. You are cordially invited to attend the exhibition and the opening reception starting at 3 pm on Saturday, 1 August, in which the artist will be present.A Filipino-American with a transnational narrative, Pettyjohn possesses first-hand knowledge of the global diaspora. Born in 1983 and raised up in the Philippines, she set forth on the journey to her father’s hometown, Texas of the United States, when she came to age. Displacement and home have since been the keynotes of Pettyjohn’s art as the continuous journey across the Pacific Ocean is both an exploration of the unknown and a root-seeking homecoming.The artist named her latest paintings as “Unearthed” followed by different letters and numbers, suggesting the depicted clothes as relics to be rediscovered, understood and expressed as to imply stories of the past. Continuing from three exhibitions held in Manila and Taipei separately during 2013, “Bundle”, “The Glass Between Us (Unbundle)”, and “Witherland”, clothes of different textures play the major roles of the new show “A Web of When and Where”. However, people are no longer present, and the contrasting elements such as cold and warmth, wet and dry, interior and exterior become less apparent. In large paintings of this exhibition, fabric, earth and plants are composed into scenes of profuse expression, seemly implying the diversification of the world. Fragments of fabric are further abstracted from any context of setting or collage and brought into focus in a series of smaller paintings. Here, the fragments floating in a wavy space of air and earth, as if in a constantly changing and unpredictable journey, and at the same time referring to an absent whole.Having two geographical origins in her life, Pettyjohn said: “Travel leads to the realization of my place in the world and the journey of self-discovery that inevitably happened. I’ve come to realize that I will always be displaced and that home to me is more than one place.” Talking about this exhibition, she stated, “It's about a conversation between the two places. When I am in each place I am both home and away.” The ancient phenomenon of diaspora is endowed with productivity and creativeness in Pettyjohn’s works. “A Web of When and Where” is not only a recollection of the past, but also a journey towards the unknown future.
