Case Study: A Place Beyond Belief

A look at A Place Beyond Belief (2012) by Nathan Coley

First response: striking, beautiful, theatre, evangelism, hope. Photograph is important –  would look less impressive in the daylight, would lose meaning if it were darker and the building (church?) below disappeared. 1,488 more words

不似攝影的攝影 Wolfgang Tillmans

在德國藝術家Wolfgang Tillmans的展覽上,總是有人會忍不住問,為何他的作品這麼平庸,卻可以擺在畫廊裡做展覽?如果你也曾這麼想,或許正中藝術家下懷,因為他感興趣的,不是自己是否拍攝了一張出色的照片,而是觀眾觀看照片的反應。

要明白他的作品,先來了解他的世界。這位50歲的德國人,從小就是個喜歡發問的男孩,熱愛天文學的他在無窮宇宙中找到慰藉。觀星時經常有光學失真及能見度的問題,用不同儀器在不同天氣下會呈現不同的現象,所以他自小就明白,看待事物的方式可以是不一致的。

《蘇珊·奧伯貝克(無文胸樂隊)》(Susanne Oberbeck (No Bra),2016)與《派翠西亞》(Patricia, 2018)

1990年代他曾在英國Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design修習過兩年攝影理論課程,在此之前,18歲時他已使用黑白激光複印機來創作圖片。1995年出版第一本攝影集《Wolfgang Tillmans》,就顯示出對攝影的探索,書中他將友人的肖像與世界各地的景觀並置在一起,玩味地將親密、趣味及社會批判融合,向社會制度及現實提出疑問。1998年的《Wolfgang Tillmans: Burg》及2005年的《Truth Study Center》更走進一步,從肖像、靜物到天文攝影,內容更多元化。

他不是那種墨守成規的人,創作時自然沒有學院派那種嚴肅及技巧的包袱,所以當時攝影界及攝影畫廊也不太嚴肅對待他的作品,即使2000年他獲得英國當代藝術大獎透納獎(Turner Prize)、以首位用攝影為媒介及首位非英國籍的藝術家獲得此獎項時,仍有評論家認為他的作品不知所謂。還好當代藝術畫廊選擇了他,讓他繼續突破攝影的界線。 34 more words
