Asia Now 2019 – CHEN XI / LIU CONG
Booth B112

24P studio presents a dialogue between two artists. 

Chen Xi, born during the late sixties, exudes a fresh appeal different from the more subtle work by other female Chinese artists of her generation. By pursuing a clear artistic path and daring to express her opinions, she highlights the evolution of her era. 

Conversely, Liu Cong, born after the eighties, takes a contrary stance. His work is calm and sober and comes from the heart, with a kind of spontaneous sensitivity and self-intuition. He is gifted in using metaphors, which serve to amplify the irrationalities inherent in his work. 

The teacher and the student, who have a shared past at the Academy of Fine Arts of China, now climb onto the same stage; Chen Xi performs a catchy and powerful recitativo, while Liu Cong sings an aria among subtle silence. The differences are multiple between these two artists, but they nevertheless create an unexpected harmony. In the space the works provoke a dialogue between the two artists and the surrounding atmosphere; this demonstrates the vitality of paintings shown at the right moment.




Asia Now 2019 陈曦 刘聪 双人展
展位B112

第五届ASIA NOW将于2019年10月15日开幕,借此二十四画(24P Studio)将呈现陈曦、刘聪双人展,为观者带来一场作品与作品的协奏。

出生于六十年代末的陈曦,有别于另外一类女性艺术家的细腻情绪,其作品里透出一种飒爽的韵味。她的创作里路清晰,富有时代意义,对于观点的表达直言不讳。而此次展览有意提炼作品中澎湃的自我写照,展出她近年来所创作的去性别、去时代的作品。

与此同时,八零后的刘聪则在某些方面站在陈曦的反面。他的创作静谧内敛,从心而出,是一种克制的感性,和发自直觉的理性。他善于表现隐喻,以放大那些合理之中易被我们被忽略的、洽又是关键的不合理。

两位艺术家的差异几乎体现在每一个方面,将两者交替陈列后引人不禁以二元分立法,寻着迹象去分析不同性别、阶段、气质、情绪带来的循环因果;时而得到合理印证,时而又更新我们既有的认知。同样具有美院背景的“师生”二人同台,陈曦的宣述调十分醒目而富有力量感,刘聪则在细微的静谧之处独唱咏叹调。将它们的绘画一并置于无法消隐自身属性的空间内,开放地设问,其得到的如同和谐韵律般的结果,恰又宣告了架上作品至今仍持续的生机。
