爆破BLOW UP

反思表面 reflecting on surfaces 

 

Exhibition Opening: Video

For the presentation of their works at Hinterseer Space in Caochangdi two artists went on to a deeper research on the subject of surfaces. While Lukas Pürmayr (*1994 born in Ehenbichl/Tyrol) sticked to his common medium of photography, Wang Ai (born 1971 in Zhejiang Province) recently experimented in a new technique with glass pearls, which are lead over painted surfaces, modifying the perception through blurred forms and light. 

 

Pürmayr’s technique bears witness to the skilful application of analogue photography on 35mm film, fascinating colours and synthetic materiality. His „Blow Up“ Series shows anonymous details which he found during a stroll through the famous Vienna Prater in 2020. Pürmayr goes in search of traces, isolates tiny details in the lens of his camera and presents them as heroes of his photography.

His works are juxtaposed with two light boxes and paintings of Wang Ai, whose philosophy is deeply rooted in the chinese tradition, combining an international language in the use of his techniques with the philosophy of buddhism.  

 

As in Michelangelo Antonioni's 1966 film "Blow Up" (春光乍現), individual details are observed, isolated and brought to oversized dimensions. For both artists, the texture, its colours and material form a key to the perception of their work.

 

 就像米开朗基罗·安东尼奥尼1966年的电影《春光乍现》一样,个别细节被独立出来,并按比例放大观察。对于两位艺术家来说,表面的质感、色彩和材料构成了他们作品感知的关键。
 

卢卡斯·皮尔迈尔(*1994)来自于奥地利蒂罗尔州的埃亨比希尔(Ehenbichl/Tirol),他选择了摄影机作为他艺术语言的媒介,拍摄了一系列片段或无名的细节:在维也纳的普拉特公园漫步数日中,他接近了那些神秘的、漂流的、吸引人的高空装置,人们只有自己亲身体验这些装置,才能感受到它们的运动。皮尔迈尔去寻找线索,在他的相机镜头中分离出微小的细节,并将它们作为他摄影作品的主角呈现出来。
