John Clang : (Re) Contextualizing My Mind

Pékin Fine Arts - Hong Kong 16/F, Union Industrial Building, 48 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Hong Kong
Google+

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 8th, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm

How alive do you feel, being alive?

This question seems strange, almost excessive, if one considers the never-ending stream of interface and devices created to enhance and stimulate one’s experience of reality.

But when was the last time your mind was emptied of clutter and your senses savored an emotion to its unadulterated fullest? Could you recall that state of pure knowingness, where you were “one” with yourself – no repressions, no distractions, and no intermediaries?

– John Clang

Pékin Fine Arts is pleased to present Singaporean artist John Clang’s exhibit “(Re) Contextualizing My Mind”, comprised of new photography and video work. Clang, who is New York City based, will be present at the Hong Kong opening. This is Clang’s 2nd solo exhibit with the gallery and his 1st in the Pékin Fine Arts Hong Kong gallery space.

One of Singapore’s most critically acclaimed young artists, Clang’s work comes out of his daily observations as a New York-based Singaporean, inspired by themes of time, displacement and urban existence. His work ruminates on his experience of city dwelling within a subtly changing urban landscape that seeks to navigate between cultures and continents. Clang’s practice examines and raises questions of the world he lives in, providing pictorial documentation as intimate mental reflection of one man’s mind. He records an emotive contemplation of possibilities arising from the mutability of perception and reality in daily life – sentiments at once both personal and universal.

(Re) Contextualizing My Mind is an on-going series begun in 1996 , exploring the intangible and fleeting aspects that precipitate human consciousness in an attempt to record with photography the artist’s own “mindscapes”. From the artist’s perspective, it is not his eyes scrutinizing but rather, his mind seeing. Created in different times of his life over a variety of states of mind, the images invite viewers to meditate on the notion of sight, sensation and perception, and their many accompanying codes and signifiers. Like a sleeping arm or leg awakened with a gentle tap, the series delivers the same tingling sensation of revival. Capturing images of the mundane and prosaic as sensual invitations for viewers to blindfold other sense organs, and focus solely on the richly layered world Clang constructs, in varied states of mind, over different moments in his life.

Works from Being Together (2010-2012) are also on exhibit. This well-known series of family portraits uses Skype technology as live recordings able to “reunite” Singaporean family members separated by continents, where a new-wave diaspora has become the modern family norm. For Clang, family members dis (membered) through time and space, can be re (membered) and made whole again through the use of a third space, a virtual site able to re-assemble relatives within the photographic space that we call a “family portrait”.

Works from Being Together were exhibited in “Being Together: Family & Portraits – Photographing With John Clang” in 2013 at the National Museum of Singapore and are currently on exhibit in the group exhibit “Family Matters” at the Centre for Contemporary Culture Strozzina, Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, Italy. A large selection of works from the artist’s solo exhibit, Being Together, were acquired by and are now part of the National Museum of Singapore’s permanent collection.

John Clang lives and works in New York City.

汪春龍(John Clang) : 時隨境遷
2014年5月8日(星期四)----2014年7月12日(星期六)
開幕:5月8日(星期四)下午5至9點


你只是生存著還是真實的活著?

這個問題似乎問得怪異,甚至有些多餘,畢竟在這個五光十色的现代生活中,各式各樣持續的刺激加深了每個人對現實的感知。

然而問問自己,你最近一次淨空自己的思緒,全心全意的去放大自我感官是什麼時候?你是否還能記起純粹的自我是什麼樣子---不再壓抑,專心致志,也不需要任何媒介的幫助?
– John Clang

北京藝門榮幸的展出新加坡藝術家Clang的作品“時隨境遷”,包括新推出的攝影和攝像作品。 Clang目前在紐約工作,他將參加香港的開幕式。這是他在北京藝門畫廊舉辦的第二次個展,是他在北京藝門位於香港的畫廊的第一次個展。

作為廣受讚譽的新加坡年輕藝術家之一,Clang的作品源於其作為生活在紐約的新加坡人對日常生活感悟,受到時間,空間變換和城市存在的啟發,他的作品反思了對所居住的城市不斷微妙變化的城市環境的感受,並嘗試在文化和大陸之間穿行。他的作法檢視著生活,並進一步對世界提出了問題,創造視覺影像生動的反映身為人的思維。他記錄了對於變化無常的情感和日常生活中的現實—一種既個人又普世的情感思考。

時隨境遷是1996年開始不斷推出的系列作品,意在深入探究人們意識深處不可觸摸的,稍縱即逝的奧秘,用攝影的方式記錄藝術家自己的“思維圖景”。在Clang看來,他是用思維注視而不是用眼睛審視。這些攝影作品是在不同的時間、不同的思維狀態下創作完成的,作品使得觀眾能夠沉澱,從視覺,感覺和感知,作品本身所包含的很多代碼和暗示,傳達瞭如同重生般的刺痛感,利用簡單純粹的圖像刺激觀眾,蒙蔽自我的感覺器官,轉而專注於Clang在不同的思維狀態、不同的人生階段構造的豐富多彩的生活當中。

作品“家,當我們不在一起”(2010-2012)也將展出。該系列家庭合影廣為人知,利用了Skype技術進行拍攝記錄,使身處異地的新加坡家庭能夠“重聚”,家庭成員分處異地已經成為現代家庭的模式。對於Clang,家庭成員在時間和空間上的分離,可以通過利用第三空間而得以團聚,這是一個虛擬的場景,可以在攝影空間中重聚家庭成員,我們稱其為“全家福”。

Clang的作品“家,當我們不在一起”曾於2013年在新加坡國立博物館舉辦的“家,當我們不在一起:家庭&合影—汪春龍攝影作品展”展出,目前在意大利佛羅倫薩斯特羅齊宮(Palazzo Strozzi)的當代文化中心Strozzina的團體展覽“家”展出。 Clang的個展“家,當我們不在一起” 的很多作品已經被新加坡藝術博物館永久收藏。

Clang目前在紐約生活和工作。
