永續藝術的合創與想像 Collaboration and Imagination in Arts & Sustainability|Francis Sollano & Lua Rivera 系列個展

永續藝術的合創與想像 Collaboration and Imagination in Arts & Sustainability|Francis Sollano & Lua Rivera 系列個展

竹圍工作室一直以來在思考身為藝術創作者與非營利藝術組織在氣候變遷、環境永續等議題上能夠擔任什麼樣的角色,又具有何種社會責任?對於工作室而言,「永續藝術(Arts & Sustainability)」不單是一個鼓勵減少消耗的代名詞,也囊括了更深層的思考。

2016及2017年,竹圍工作室以「觸發改變的創藝連結(Creative Collaboration as Catalyst for Change)」命題,接待數十位國內外藝術家前來駐村,將藝術的「跨國/跨域合創」視為促成無國界文化交流的催化劑,同時透過參與式創作工作坊及藝術家座談,藉由藝術領導大眾深化與具體化對於環境永續的認知,其中不乏在在討論,從每一日的生活當中,我們到底能做什麼以改變現狀?

本次與再生藝術工坊合作此系列個展,邀請菲律賓藝術家Francis Sollano與墨西哥藝術家Lua Rivera以兩種不同的概念及手法切入,利用各式回收材料創作,並導入個人情感連結,期待以此作為藝術創作者融合環境友善理念與創作的範例。

媽媽的後院 Mama’s Backyard (10/11-11/19)

「媽媽的後院(Mama’s Backyard)」由藝術家Francis Sollano與竹圍國小志工媽媽團經過六場工作坊的討論與設計概念、實作技法教學後,共同創作而成。此展覽的靈感源自於其在宿霧老家的生活記憶-被花團簇擁、大樹包圍,藝術家對於自然的愛好在早年時就被發掘,並經由他的創作推廣環境保育,鼓勵他人也一同發聲。同時此展覽也向藝術家的母親 Adelina Sollano 致敬,她將自己一生奉獻給家庭,創造出一個充滿自然景觀的生長環境。

Francis結合了商品化的物件及概念性的裙裝創作,讓觀者能夠從日常中的物件中找到美感,藝術家運用美麗台灣關懷協會提供的廢棄廣告旗幟創作,展現如何賦予被丟棄的物件一條新生命,每一個碎片都呈現了獨特的材料運用技巧如縫紉、衣褶、貼花等等。

 

關係鏈:來自藝術、生物與結構的對話 Nexus: A dialogue of art, biology and architecture (11/25-12/17)

「關係鏈(Nexus)」由藝術家Lua Rivera使用再生藝術工坊所收集的各式布料、塑膠袋、裝飾品等現地創作大型裝置藝術作品,是一個聚焦在如何妥善運用廢物料的當代藝術展。創作者藉由結合編織與複合媒材結構,探索人類與鳥類的相似特性。對於Lua 而言,感受藝術如透過神經系統穿梭,她藉實驗學習、藉創作生存,藝術可以跨界、可以在不同領域中自由交流互動,穿越畫廊的白牆,讓其藝術作品以有機的方式交織、成長、適應不同環境。

此展覽期待去重新解釋並探究那些時常被忽略,卻將我們緊扣已久的關聯性。作品中特殊的結構都呈現了不以言語為溝通管道的交流方式,我們被織入複合關係的核心,留下錯綜複雜的故事,討論關於資源浪費與最適宜的生存方式。

面對環境變遷這樣的大哉問,藝術也許無法告訴你解決方法,但它能夠提供新的思維模式,帶你跳脫現有的觀看角度,就如同如同Francis常掛在嘴邊的「You Live for Change」,他重新詮釋其所主導的非營利組織「Youth for a Livable Cebu」縮寫的定義,鼓勵所有人作出實質的行動,不因一己之力微薄而放棄,如同投石子到池塘中,掀起小小的漣漪,一旦將能量傳遞出去就有機會促成對話的空間與改變的可能。

Collaboration and Imagination in Arts and Sustainability 
Francis Sollano and Lua Rivera series solo Exhibition 
1. Mama's Backyard by Francis Sollano 
2. Nexus: A dialogue of Art, biology and architecture by Lua Rivera 

Adviser: Ministry of Culture 
Organizer: Bamboo Curtain Studio 
Co-organizer: Creative Reuse Centre , Zhuwei Elementary School, Youth For Livable Cebu, Beautiful Taiwan Non-governmental Organization 

Bamboo Curtain Studio constantly contemplates on what role do we play and what responsibilities do we have as an art creator and a non-profit organization. To us at Bamboo Curtain Studio, arts and sustainability aren't just only a pronoun for reducing any forms of consumption, but also a deeper level of thinking. 

In the year of 2016 and 2017, Bamboo Curtain Studio set the theme to Creative Collaboration as Catalyst for Change and host dozens of artists from all over the globe. We see this transnational/ trans-border collaboration as an enzyme to bring upon cross-border cultural encounters, and also by holding participative workshops and artists forums, we seek to deepen and form a concrete concept on sustainable environment, in which we also discuss what we can change in our day-to-day life to introduce the change in the current situation. 

This time we again collaborate with Creative Reuse Centre, invited Filipino artist Francis Sollano and Mexican artist Lua Rivera to work with different concept and tactics, implementing new medium using recycled materials infused with personal emotional connections, hoping to set a good example of artists integrating the perception of friendly environment and creating artworks. 

Mama's backyard (10/11-11/19)

The formation of Mama's backyard went through six workshops and the teaching of series of designing concepts and techniques and was finally created by Francis Sollano with volunteers of Zhuwei elementary school. The idea of the exhibition comes from the living memory of Sollano's home in Cebu- the feeling of being surrounded by flowers and trees. Sollano's love for nature is an early discovery for himself, he dedicates his works to environment preservation, hoping to bring lights to other people and encourage the love for nature through his creative projects. This exhibition also dedicates to his loving mother Adelina Sollano, who gave all her life to her family and created an environment where nature is all around for her kids to grow. 

Francis' work combines commercial objects and conceptual dress designs, which builds up an easier idea for audiences to look for beauty in everyday life and objects. He utilizes the abandoned banners that Beautiful Taiwan Non-Governmental Organization has donated, demonstrates how to resuscitate a seemingly inutile object to life. Every fragment in his work represents an unique and specific technique such as sewing, folding and applique. 


Nexus: A dialogue of art, biology and architecture (11/25-12/17)

Nexus is a sizeable art installation made by artist Lua Rivera on site using different kinds of cloth, plastic bag and ornament she collected from Creative Reuse Centre.  It is an exhibition that focuses on how to appropriate waste materials properly. By combining weaving and mixed media, artist explores the similar habits human and birds share. To Lua, to feel art is like travelling back and forth in the nerve system, she learns by experimenting, survives by creating, and just like how nerve system works, art is a subject that meets different matters everywhere, roams from place to place freely, and transcends through the white wall of galleries, making the artwork the centre of itself to grow,  to interweave and and to adapt different environments organically.   

With this piece the artist seeks to reinterpret and understand the overlooked but millenary relation that binds us together.
These specialized structures express themselves in a nonverbal communication. Weaved within the core of this complex situation, lies the intricate stories about waste and survival of the most fit. This project enters a zone of tension, and navigates between these juxtapose worlds taking inspiration from the organic and complex nesting process of birds.

Facing with such a big question like environmental change, art is maybe not the answer to it, but it provides us a new way to think and it also takes us to see things a different way, just like what Francis always says '' you live for change''. He reinterpreted the name of the organization he leads- Youth for a Livable Cebu, he encourages people to take actions and don't give up just because you are only one person. It's like throwing a small rock into a pond, however small it is, it always ripples. Once the energy is out there, there is always possibilities for starting a conversation or making a change.
