緊接台北當代藝術館展覽「在空之間」，比利時藝術家史丹・安克（Stijn Ank）九月份將回到路由藝術空間迎接「純粹 Purity」個展，帶來三大經典系列創作
壁掛雕塑（Mural Sculpture）、壁畫裝置（Wall Fresco）與直立雕塑（Standing Sculpture），可以看見安克對藝術作品與空間兩者貼合性的堅持。部分為台灣現地創作，是其來到台灣感受與觀察後所詮釋的空間性格。展覽將於9月2日下午三點開幕，藝術家將親臨現場，歡迎各位蒞臨指教。
Immediately after the show in MoCA Taipei, Belgian artist Stijn Ank’s solo exhibition “Purity” will be on view at 15:00 on 2 September in Nunu Fine Art, showing his insistence on the appropriateness of the artworks and the space with his three classic series: Mural Sculpture, Wall Fresco, and Standing Sculpture. Some of the works will be created site-specifically, following the artist’s own interpretation of spatial features in Taiwan since his arrival. Welcome to join the reception with us this time.

In Ank’s most classic series, what cannot be ignored is the unbalanced, contradicted contrast between its form and texture that stands out from every work of his. The silk-like edges and folds creates a strong contrast against the hard texture and uneven surface of plaster, allowing audience to experience an unexpected visual impact, which was built by Ank deliberately. In the beginning, Ank would not restrain himself from choosing the materials for molds liberally. All the wood, aluminum, iron and plastic could be the origin of his works, forming their own wills to make the spacial boundaries.

壁畫裝置 Wall Fresco
Fresco could be viewed as one of the most initial forms of painting, and becomes an artwork that complies with the architectural space. Based on this, Ank tried to think the “paintings” in a way of three-dimensional sculpture.Unlike other artists using canvas to paint, Ank uses the space behind canvas to create his works. While creating a large scale site-specific installation, the artist jumped off the boundaries of canvas and extended the colorful “three-dimensional painting” on the wall. Therefore, Ank blurred the boundary of definition and working process of painting, and put all the “interior and exterior space” to the limit. It is one of Ank’s classic series.

直立雕塑 Standing Sculpture
Compared with the other two series, the standing sculptures encourage the audience to experience the space in a more diverse way. Through the appearance of the work, the artist hints the audience about the mold used during the process and records the molding and details of medium within. In work “8.2017”, we could consider the traces of pressure compressed by the sand bags as the proofs of gravity. This method of molding is loyal to the reality, thus allows the artist to take a step away from the creating process to show the most truthful form of the sculptures by letting them grow up in their own wills.
