鹽水浴場--施三本個人展 Saline Baths – Shi Samben Solo Exhibition






施三本自述:「當我瞇起眼睛細看人心,只會滿懷失望;當我環顧四周人心所致百態,世界頓時又變得妙趣起來。」

「鹽水」通俗意指海水。氤氳奪目的太陽被瓦解成粼粼的波光、驟雨將至前愈發的沉悶乏色、摸不清來意善否的風、一道劃破長空的巨響墜下……此消彼長,似乎有點蠻橫的亞熱帶海洋性季風氣候,在這位出生於臨海城鎮的藝術家作品中得以窺見。它們不斷蔓延進作品中,構建起其獨特的作品基調。同時「鹽水」亦是能維持人體細胞的有機溶液,它溫文有序、乏善可陳。藝術家時常將自己納入這樣的有機中提煉:觀察世相;世事無相;無相生動。
如今,真實裸體失色於理想化及情色化的怪像中,人們選擇在私密中梳洗一整天的萎靡,裸露的肌膚抱有憤怒也勢必化為安寧。而「浴場」恰恰忤逆。肆意暴露的肥碩在晃蕩,碰撞帶來陌生的親密,又或者來意曖昧的閱讀……無不挑戰著私密這一母題。有趣的是,藝術家個人在衍生作品的過程近乎私密,而在公開的展示中卻猶如置身「浴場」,私密與公共就此反覆運算,來了一場包裹著風情的噴發。
本次牛房倉庫邀請到九十後內地影像藝術創作者施三本駐留澳門,這位出生於臨海城鎮的藝術家,其作品曾於深圳、杭州、上海、北京、德國、瑞士等地展出。本次展覽將展示施過往及最新創作的動畫影像作品,用「鹽水浴場」為題,以飄浮不定的動畫影像展現那些或私密或曖昧的思考,希望賦予觀眾另一個角度觀照常見的哲學問題和世間的兩難局面。

Samben said: “When I closely examine human nature, I’ll only feel disappointment. But when I look around at the kaleidoscope of human behaviour, the world becomes interesting again.”
Saline, or saltwater, often refers to seawater. On the sea, the sparkling sunlight is broken down into reflections on waves while the colour of the sea can dull just before a storm. One can never tell whether a gust of wind will bring no harm. And all of a sudden, a deafening thunder cuts through the air... The sun, the wind, the wave and the thunder all go in circles. The rampage of the subtropical monsoon climate in south China creeps into the work of this artist who grew up by the sea, giving a peculiar undertone to his work. Meanwhile, saline can be the solution that maintains the human body functioning, it is mild, gentle and dull. The artist puts himself into a mechanism like saline, observes and distills the kaleidoscope of human being. In this kaleidoscope, there are no permanent phenomena, only permanent illusion.
The truth of the naked body was long lost in the strange trends of idealization and erotization. When people decide to wash off in private the dispiritedness collected throughout the day, the anger gathered by the revealing skin would dissolve into peace. But a public place to “bath” is the opposite and a challenge of privacy. The bodies are revealed to each other, the touching may arouse intimacy between strangers, or an ambiguous interpretation. Interestingly, the process of creating artwork is mostly private, while exhibiting it is like putting oneself in a “public bath”. Being private and being public are intertwined in such a way, erupting in rich connotations.
Ox Warehouse invited Mainland video artist Samben to participate in a residency project in Macau. Samben’s works had been exhibited in Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Beijing, Germany and Switzerland. Born in a seaside town, Samben chose “Saline Bath” as the theme for this project. Based on his past animation videos, he tried to showcase this kind of intimate or ambiguous thoughts with elusive visuals, hoping to provide some other insights into the dilemma between common philosophical considerations and people’s actual life.
