羅漢窟—曾國榮個展 Lohan-Jiao Cave─Tzeng Gou Rung Solo Exhibition

▍展覽簡介 About Exhibition

如果有一個信仰是屬於年輕人的話,那精神價值會是什麼樣貌?也許現在大部分年輕族群,對於信仰不再指向一個具體的宗教、神明,而是潛藏在生活裡的行為或態度,隨著時代的改變,宗教符號與行為也隨之改變,不變的是這些行為背後對於生命的祈求,原於中華民族裡對於「福祿壽喜財子安康寧樂」對於生命的圓滿概念,我們才努力辛苦地活著。《羅漢窟》圍繞現在的青年狀態,從圖像、行為、生活空間、社會處境去對照民俗裡的吉祥圖案,將這些寓意回到民間工藝中的壁畫繪畫與神轎製作,到台南永川大轎學習木刻與楯接技術,透過工藝的精神性、傳統圖樣與當代的置換,將生活精神價值或對生命的祈求展開來。

座談簡介 About Forum|
藝術家曾國榮出生於台南,家裡從事紙錢行業十餘年,對於信仰問題感到興趣。羅漢腳指的是清朝時期來台灣的單身男性,將其比喻當代年輕人的處境,無房、無車、無包袱,卻認真地生活著。作品主要以年輕人的日常生活對應傳統民俗信仰,置換了傳統廟宇中的紋樣和圖案,例如:龍置換家裡的貓咪,將花干博古圖置換書桌、廚房,呈現日常中的生活狀態,用傳統神轎的木作雕刻方式,建構在一台卡丁車上,一台可以開的神轎。展覽以雕塑、空間裝置、平面繪畫共同呈現當代羅漢腳。
兩位藝術家皆以學院的系統出發,藝術家曾國榮面對家庭的民俗紙錢業,藝術家裴公慶個人矛盾的華裔身份,以及家族史的經驗,兩人都轉向木作雕刻的藝術表現。從越南到台南,雖然地理上的差異,卻都回到傳統木作上。兩位藝術家在使用圖像符號的背後,都可以找到中華文化的痕跡。論壇從圖像雕刻出發,討論小木作、大木作、到當代藝術。期待藉由此討論的過程,民俗工藝(folk arts)在當代藝術中可能扮演的多重角色及更多可能。

Artist Tzeng Gou-Rung was born in 1990 in Tainan. He grew up with his family running the business of joss stick and spirit money for more than decades. Therefore, the artist is highly interested in the topics of faith and believes. The word “Lohan-Jiao” refers to single men who moved overseas from China to Taiwan during the Qing dynasty. They are likened to young people nowadays, living a life without purchasing house, car, try to carry no burden, but still tried to take their life seriously. The pieces presents the living situation of young people. In this series, the artist took the patterns and images from the traditional temple, then replaced them with things we are familiar with nowadays, to show the believes in our daily life. Such as, replaced traditional dragon image with house cats, took Vase-Antiquarian Paintings and turned it into desk and household appliances. Even more, the artist tried to build a Go-Kart made of traditional palanquin carvings, which made the Go-Kart into a drivable palanquin. In summary, this series of work would in cloud carvings and graphic paintings, presents the concept Lohan-Jiao in modern day life.
Though artists Bui cong khanh and Tzeng Gou-Rung both came from academic background, but when it comes to art creating, artist Tzeng Gou-Rung reached his creativity to the family business of joss stick and spirit money. For artist Bui cong khanh, his creations shared the family history or struggle of being an Chinese in Vietnam. From Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam to Tainan city, Taiwan, two artists both have chosen traditional wood carving art as their focus spontaneously. Chinese culture shows itself behind the symbolic signs from their artwork. Start from wood carving art, the online forum would lead the discussion to joinery works, wooden structural, and how folk arts could play alternative roles in contemporary art, and all the possibilities comes with it.
