Osage :: Manifest materiality 賦形於質: 23.03 – 15.06.2024

Presented by Osage Art Foundation
奧沙藝術基金主辦
Curated by Charles Merewether
Charles Merewether策展

This exhibition represents some 24 works by 14 artists from Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Turkey. Their work conveys a powerful materiality that can be seen in regard to either the subject of their address or the use of materials. For some of these artists their subject alludes to the broader social sphere in which they live. Art becomes a means of remembering history or raising issues of social justice. For the other artists, art become a metaphorical means of characterizing everyday life, memory and history. And the third strand of exploration lies with those artists who explore the playful allusions and visual subtleties of abstraction. 

本次展覽展出了來自泰國、印尼、香港、菲律賓和土耳其的 14 位藝術家的 24件作品。他們的作品傳達出一種強大的物質性,這種物質性反映於作品的主題或材料的運用之中。對於當中一些藝術家來說,他們的主題暗指他們所生活中更廣泛的社會領域,藝術成為銘記歷史或提出社會正義問題的一種手段。對於其他藝術家來說,藝術則成為一種隱喻的手段,用來描述日常生活、記憶和歷史。而第三種探索則是那些追求抽象主義的玩味和視覺微妙之處的藝術家。

Osage :: Stemflow: South by Southeast 莖流: 東南偏南

Presented by Osage Art Foundation
奧沙藝術基金主辦
Curated by Patrick Flores & Reuben Keehan
Patrick Flores & Reuben Keehan策展

This exhibition is the third iteration of the South by Southeast project that seeks to widen the geopoetic contexts of Southeast Asia in relation to articulations of the south, the east, and the southeast elsewhere as a third moment. This third moment may elude the construction of colonial geopolitics and, in fact, responds to the other forms of worlding the region of the southeast, which need not be reduced to the legible formulation of Southeast Asia. In this current exhibition, the southeast is made to incline to the South Pacific. The previous initiatives situated this region within the ambit of Southeast Europe, South Africa, and the Caribbean. The title responds to the Austronesian concept of origin and path, from the word pun, which is both locus and initiator of continuity. It can be roughly translated as stem. In the life of the forest, stemflow refers to the water from the rain that moves down the stem or trunk to reach the ground. The image intuits passage, transmission, and an all-over ecology of past and future. Finally, the exhibition speaks to the evolving scenarios in the world in the present, such as the wars in Europe and the tension in the seas around the region. By redrawing the map and remapping the world through the vector of the southeast, the project seeks to offer imaginations of belonging that stems from multiple wellsprings of origin, emergence, and assembly. _
