  • The Highs and Lows of Scotland’s Year in Art 2018 – …

    2018.12.25 · 发表评论

    There are two starkly contrasting images that operate as a kind of visual shorthand for the highs and lows of Scotland’s year in the visual arts. One is the forlorn yet still strangely beautiful sight of the Glasgow School of Art’s gutted Mackintosh building, a haunting, skeletal reminder of the devastation wreaked on the night of 15 June as fire ripped through it and the neighbouring 02 ABC music venue. The other is the brand new Kengo Kuma-designed V&A Dundee – which opened to the public on 15 September – a bold and imposing presence on this east coast city’s waterfront that speaks of civic ambition and cultural soft power. Old and new, renewal and destruction – it’s been a sometimes fraught and rarely dull year. – 在视觉艺术中,有两幅截然不同的图像作为苏格兰年份高低的视觉速记。其中一幅是格拉斯哥艺术学院那座被摧毁的麦金托什大楼的凄凉而又奇妙的美丽景象,它令人难以忘怀,让人想起6月15日夜里发生的大火,以及邻近的02ABC音乐会场。另一个是九月十五日向公众开放的全新肯戈·库马设计的V&A Dundee,在这个东海岸城市的滨水区,它大胆而雄伟地展现了公民的雄心壮志和文化软实力。新旧交替,更新和毁灭——这一年有时很紧张,也很少枯燥。

  • 随着爱丁堡城市立天文台的重建,当代艺术和传统能结合起来吗?

    2018.11.23 · 发表评论

    在五个不同大小的独立建筑中,新的空间结合了许多常见的艺术建筑元素——两个画廊、一个餐厅、商店、图书馆、教室——以及它自己独有的地方,例如新近重新粉刷的1831年的天文望远镜;经过修复的1818年由爱丁堡建筑师威廉·亨利·普莱费尔William Henry Playfair设计的古典希腊风格城市天文台的东部门廊,它生动地提醒人们这座建筑为什么存在——望远镜主要用于通过观测天空来精确设定时间。现在的目标则是将艺术带入一个新的语境,或者正如视觉艺术共和所说:“公共体将自己定位为一种新型的天文台,邀请公众通过当代艺术的镜头观察周围的世界。”

  • Margaret Tait’s Beguiling Films Show a Dogged Commitment t …

    The Scottish filmmaker and poet Margaret Tait made films that hum with humanity. Her gently persuasive work is both intensely personal and engagingly social, the apparent simplicity of her everyday imagery belying her dogged commitment to the act of looking. Tait, who died in 1999, was born in Kirkwall, Orkney 100 years ago on 11 November 1918, and between 1951 to 1998 created more than 30 films. The exhibition ‘Stalking the Image: Margaret Tait and her Legacy’ is part of a series of events across Scotland marking the centenary of her birth. Featuring nine of her films that vary in length from two to 32 minutes, also included at Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art are vitrines filled with archive material such as typed letters, hand-drawn story boards and the filmmaker’s 16mm Bolex camera. – 苏格兰电影制片人和诗人Margaret Tait制作了充满人性的电影。她温柔而有说服力的作品既具有强烈的个人魅力,又具有吸引力的社会性,她日常形象的明显朴素背离了她对观看行为的坚定承诺。泰特于1999年去世,100年前1918年11月11日出生于奥克尼的柯克沃尔,1951年至1998年间创作了30多部电影。“跟踪图像:玛格丽特·泰特和她的遗产”展览是苏格兰各地一系列纪念她诞辰100周年活动的一部分。她拍摄的9部电影长度从2分钟到32分钟不等,同样包括在格拉斯哥现代艺术画廊(Gallery of Modern Art)中,其中有玻璃杯,里面装满了档案材料,如打字信、手绘故事板和电影制作人的16mmBolex相机。

    The poet on the ‘strange portability’ of life on the road ‘Don’t say “What”’, the customs agent barks at me through the plexiglass membrane dividing France from the UK. I hadn’t made out his question and now I’m frozen in the face of this unexpected puzzle. What do I say besides ‘what?’ – 诗人在路上的“奇怪的便携性”上说:“不要说“什么”,海关代理人通过把法国和英国分开的有机玻璃对我吠叫。我还没有提出他的问题,现在我面对这个意想不到的难题被冻结了。除了“什么”之外,我还能说什么?’
