瑞典艺术家杨瀚松个展“昼夜之战”

杨瀚松(Janeric Johansson)作为较早来到云南的西方艺术家之一,自1999年以来与本土艺术家、学者和年轻人结下深厚友谊,并以昆明创库TCG诺地卡画廊为平台,先后在昆明、思茅等地举办过5次个展,展览皆因其作品独特的观赏方式,以及杨瀚松热情洋溢的讲解,引起本地观众巨大反响。杨瀚松曾于2004年至2005年间担任TCG诺地卡画廊总监,主持策划过一系列重要的展览。

杨瀚松出生于1950年的瑞典,他自学成才,尽管如此,他的作品却流露出一个专业艺术家的严谨与才华。他善于运用丙烯和油画创作,并在平面作品上安装金属凹凸状的结构,在上面绘制文字和图画,制造出画面多角度观看的可能:正面、左侧与右侧,每一个角度观看获得的信息如此丰富,每一个观看角度的微妙变化也都引起观众的极大兴趣与猜测。而画面中每一个符号与图式的运用,俨如达芬奇的密码,有待艺术家本人解密。幸运的是,杨瀚松善于讲故事的才能让观众着迷,使许多人能更生动地了解艺术和艺术家。正因为此,有时他展览结束那天比开幕式上来的观众更多。

杨瀚松的作品鼓励人们去思考、去感受、去述说,他更鼓励人们不要仅仅站在一个角度观看现实,有时需要挪动挪动脚步,站在正确的位置上,我们就可以观赏到一片别样的风景。

这次展览被艺术家命名为“昼夜之战”,延续了杨瀚松艺术中一贯的理念:二元论、换位思考以及价值观,如同他曾经展出的作品,左侧看是“东”字,右侧看是“西”字;一面写着“公义、和平、爱”,一面写着“专横、战争、仇恨”;一面是孤独的马匹,一面是相互亲吻的马群。这次展出作品的题材有关黑暗与光明,以及两者之间永不停息的斗争。这次展出的25件丙烯装置绘画作品均为杨瀚松近两年来在昆明创库的工作室里创作的成果。

“昼夜之战”艺术展将于2010年4月17日晚上8点在昆明创库TCG诺地卡画廊开幕,展览于5月8日结束,详情请登录诺地卡官方网站www.tcgnordica.com查看。期待您的光临!

Swedish artist Janeric Johansson’s solo exhibition “Light Fight Night”

Janeric Johansson has since 1999 established a deep friendship with artists, scholars and young people in Yunnan. He has arranged five solo art exhibitions in Kunming and Simao, by using the TCG Nordica gallery in Kunming Loft as his platform.
Through the unique view of his works, his exhibitions have made a lasting impact on the audience. The passionate elaborations have been met with a tremendous response from the art community.
Janeric Johansson worked as the Gallery Director of TCG Nordica for a year in 2004 and 2005. He has in addition planned and curated a series of important exhibitions in Kunming.

Janeric Johansson was born in Sweden in 1950. As an artist he is self-taught, but the strictness and obvious talent reflected in his art, reveals that this is beyond doubt an experienced professional.
He often uses acrylic and oil, installing metal structures on his paintings. This encourages the audience to view the art works from different angles. Viewing from each new point, you will discover different aspects of his art, and every subtle change will increase the audience’s curiosity and stimulate their creativity.
Moreover, the application of every symbol and the schema of his work is reminiscent of The Da Vinci Code, but still needs the artist’s help to decrypt it.
Janeric Johansson’s talent in telling stories has proved enchanting, enabling the audience to vividly understand both art and artist. This is why, of all the exhibitions we have, his are the only ones where there’s sometimes a bigger audience on the final day than on the opening.

Janeric Johanssons’ art stimulates people to think, to feel and to tell. He encourages his audience not to view reality from one angle only. Sometimes you should move and view things from another point. You will then discover a totally different aspect of both his art and of reality.

The exhibition “Light Fight Night” is named by the artist himself. It’s a continuation of his consistent philosophy through the years — dualism, empathy and certain values. One of the pieces, viewed from the left showes the Chinese word “dong” (east), while from the right you will see the word “xi” (west). In another work it’s written “justice, peace and love” on one side. On the other side is “arrogance, war and hatred”. In a third work there’s a lonely horse on one side, and on the other side horses are kissing each other.
The theme of the exhibition is darkness and light, and the unceasing struggle between them. The 25 art pieces in this exhibition have all been created by Janeric Johansson in the last two years at his studio in Kunming’s Loft area.

The exhibition “Light Fight Night” will be presented on April the 17th at 8 pm, at TCG Nordica, Kunming Loft.It ends on May the 8th.

Looking forward to see you here!
