2018 A4国际艺术家驻留项目: Youngjae Lih(李荣宰) 工作坊-寻找大佛 2018 A4 ARIE: Youngjae Lih’s workshop-“Follow Artist, Looking for Buddha”

艺术家李荣宰出生于韩国,目前工作与生活于瑞典。他的作品关注视觉形式的构成与变换,人类的信息在空间与时间中的传递,文化交流中的冲撞与盲点。他居住在不同地方,看到很多西方文化看待亚洲文化的有趣模式。比如佛像在酒店、餐厅、美容院,按摩店,寿司餐厅,化妆品店等场所中的装饰化应用。成都是西方和东方文化交流最为活跃的地方之一,我们可以在城市中看到很多来自不同文明的物与符号。而在成都的驻留创作中,李荣宰将关注我们的日常生活里,消费逻辑是如何挪用另一种文化的核心符号的。

The artist Youngjea Lih was born in South Korea and currently works and lives in Sweden. His works focus on the composition and transformation of visual forms, the transmission of human information in space and time, and the collisions and blind spots in cultural exchanges. While living in different places, he found many interesting patterns of how Western cultures perceives Asian culture. Such as Buddha Statues displayed as some decorative applications in hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, massage shop, sushi restaurants, cosmetics stores and other places. Chengdu is one of the most active places where this exchange between the Western and the Eastern cultures first occurred. We can see many things and symbols from different civilizations in the city. Moreover, for Youngjea Lih’s residence creation, he will pay attention to how consumption logic use the core symbols of another culture in our daily lives.

本次工作坊,我们将邀请参与者与艺术家一起,以摄影为媒介,尝试从外来视角、内在视角、以及每个个体的视角来看我们的城市中,“佛像”这种“东方文明”的重要象征是以怎样的姿态存在的。

In this workshop, we will invite participants and artists to use photography as a medium to explore our cities-“Buddha, the ancient oriental civilization, how this important symbol exists” from the point of external, internal, and individual view.
