Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow Exhibition


Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow Exhibition
Location: National Gallery Singapore

加坡国家美术馆里的期间限定特别展为访客们呈现了一系列出自草间弥生的艺术作品,从《南瓜》到《无限镜屋》,让访客们从一部分圆点的艺术品和雕塑品去探讨这位前卫艺术家的创作灵感还有那令人视觉震撼的幻想空间。《Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow》艺术展通过四至五间展厅展示了草间弥生的创作。

这里有着关于这位艺术家的简介介绍:

草间弥生出生于1929年,被誉为【二十世纪最伟大的艺术家】之一,获奖无数,是日本地位举足轻重的当代艺术家。草间弥生的童年非常坎坷,经常被母亲虐打,父亲则有婚外情。她在10岁时被确诊患上神经性视听障碍,令她的视觉多了一层网状斑点,也令她有自杀倾向。而画画和创作就是她自我治愈的方法。她创作的范围很广,包括平面绘画、软雕塑、行动艺术和装置艺术等,也有出版过多本的自传和小说。她的作品常常被归类为多个艺术派,如抽象表现主义、超现实主义、原生艺术和普普艺术等。圆点、鲜艳的用色、镜面、南瓜、密集的图案等都是这位圆点女王常用的创作元素,是她对世间事物的投射,为她的作品营造出独特与明确具有领导性的风格。






1st Gallery – Infinity Nets & Pumpkins

“My art originates from hallucinations only I can see. I translate the hallucinations and obsessional images that plague me into sculptures and paintings.”

草间弥生的最初作品都布满了圆点的图形,当这些小圆点集中一块儿就成了充满了魅力十足的壁纸或是壁画,如无限的网笼罩住我们的视线。密集的圆点是草间弥生大师的创作特色,无论是实体或是软雕塑都离不开圆点,作品更是从最初的单色调系列到鲜艳的用色令其作品更加印象深刻。另一个代表作品就是南瓜,黄色的南瓜布满黑色的圆点所展现出怪诞的感觉,除了在平面设计上,进一步挑战审美观和个人的视觉享受,特别以立体感的圆点南瓜搭配镜面,呈现出令人佩服的视觉艺术品。






2nd Gallery – Infinity Mirrored Room

“Forget yourself. Become one with eternity. Become part of your environment.”

如爱丽丝进入镜子里的世界,下一个房间的艺术品都和镜子有关联,毕竟镜子是不错的空间艺术品创作原料之一,投射与反射可令空间感变得广阔,如《无限镜屋》成了令人感到好奇万分的错觉艺术品。这房间内除了错觉艺术品展示之外,还包括了一些不允许访客们摄影的珍贵艺术品,仿佛给人一种像是进入了红心女王的“私人”城堡的感觉,女王的命令十分苛刻,甚至可以感受到女王的霸道和执着精神,如其艺术品所给予的压迫与震撼感。






3rd Gallery – Wonders, Tulips & Paintings

“I, Kusama, am the modern Alice in Wonderland.”

梦是黑白的吗?梦是彩色的吗?有黑白的愿望吗?愿望铁定是彩色的!离开了郁郁寡欢的空间后,紧接进入四面都是黑白艺术品的国度,唯有正中央摆放着一个神秘的箱子。这箱子里头镜子反射营造出无限的空间,甚至配合彩色的灯光呈现出迷人的万花筒,几乎美得把我们的眼睛给吸引住了。如外头的现实世界和里头的幻想空间,强烈的对比让人不得不陶醉其中。下一个房间就是白色的空间里有着彩色圆点的郁金香,再下一个房间就是充满活力气息的空间,里头包括了展览的主题创作- Life Is the Heart Of A Rainbow,从鲜艳的用色可以感受到一股生气勃勃的气息,是充满希望与喜悦的欢呼。






4th Gallery – Narcissus Garden

“I wanted to start a revolution, using art to build the sort of society I myself envisioned.”

City Hall Chamber里头不同的角落都放置了许多不锈钢球,是大师的《自恋庭院》的代表作品之一。关于这作品的故事,从网上得知这是早期草间弥生在美国时威尼斯双年展,在未受官方邀请下以这《自恋庭院》自行参加了第33届威尼斯双年展。她趁著半夜时自己一个人将总共1500颗不锈钢球放在Italian Pavilion户外展场上,草间本人穿着金色和服端坐其中。以每颗不锈钢球2美元的价格售出,一方面以赚取生活费,另一方面也被认为她大力批评当年商业化的艺术市场。虽然她很快就被主办单位强制驱离,但她独特的做法也引起了不少热烈的讨论与关注。






5th Obliteration Room 

“Polka dots can't stay alone. When we obliterate nature and our bodies with polka dots, we become part of the unity of our environments.”

这里原本是白色污染的空间,家具和墙壁,甚至沙发和玩具都一色不染,目的就是让访客们参与艺术创作中,形成一个互动式的作品《消融之屋》。参观者们都可以领取一张印有彩色圆形设计的贴纸,随心在这白色空间里贴上这些圆点贴纸,感受一下自己为这艺术品的“贡献”。渐渐地白色的房间也贴满了五颜六色夺目的圆点贴纸,如圆点女王所说我们都可以成为艺术品的一部分,只要融入、投入、进入这艺术的幻想国度。当然我们哥妹俩也随心所欲令自己也成为活生生的艺术,将圆点贴纸往自己的脸上贴,有趣玩乐一番。






Food Menu Inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s Artwork

前来参观草间弥生艺术展览的访客不仅从展厅饱享视觉的震撼,就连餐饮体验的部分也可以让自己尽情投入这圆点艺术的境界。在国家美术馆的Gallery & Co.咖啡厅处更为访客们准备了期间限定的美食,而这些诱惑人心的料理都是从草间弥生的作品取得灵感。黑点黄色南瓜形状的布丁还是以圆点为元素摆盘的餐点都十分美丽,当然价钱来得不便宜,毕竟精心设计的美食艺术品都一贯是贵精不贵多。






避不了,躲不过,一群又一群前来参观这展览的访客,就连不是周末的时间,也可以看到排队进入各个展厅的访客队伍。的确是不容许错过的艺术展览之一,因为就算不喜欢艺术或是对艺术不怎么认知的你,只要进入了草间弥生的艺术品展厅,都似乎会被她的圆点与鲜艳亮丽作品给吸引住,而那些互动艺术品或是镜面空间艺术都让你尽兴其中。可惜就是不能在这些展厅逗留许久,有些展厅里更设有限制逗留的时间,当你欣赏艺术品的当儿也可能或许会被工作人员驱赶,兴致勃勃的心情都会变得十分扫兴。

患有密集恐惧症的患者最好避免进入这展览,因为有些作品的确布满了密集的圆点图案。前来的参观者都最好要有心理准备,这是走马看花似的艺术展,或许付了$S25的展览入门票,很可能会令你觉得这趟艺术之旅有所不值。把握你所拥有的时间去欣赏草间弥生的创作,进入前不妨从网上读读关于草间弥生的作品创作的概念。其实,草间弥生的艺术展览本就已经非常有卖点了,对艺术爱好者来说,或许就算亲眼可以看看艺术品一分钟而已,都几乎是非常难得的机会。
