涅普頓畫廊很開心將延續國際藝術的量能,再度邀請六名分別來自台、日、韓的藝術家陣容,以「未來方舟」為2024下半年度一連串藝術活動的揭示主題,呈現亞洲當代藝術的多元風貌和創造力。展覽主題「未來方舟」的理念受威廉·吉布森的科幻小說,同樣也是奠定「賽博龐克」Cyberpunk先河的鉅作:出版於1986年《神經喚術士》(Neuromancer)啟發,其影響之廣泛觸及文學、音樂、電影、視覺美學等層面,以其獨特的視角探討了科技、身份、虛擬世界、人工智慧和人類心靈間的複雜關係。透過這部小說的論述基礎,我們探索當代藝術的未知、展望未來,更藉由藝術帶領我們挑戰突破現實的理解。展期為6月22日(星期六)至8月11日(星期日),開幕茶會將舉行於6月22日(星期六)下午三點,我們誠摯邀請您的蒞臨。

在網際網路尚未普及的年代,預示且帶領人們進入暗黑、混沌卻又神秘未知的未來世界,人類和機械、科技的共融,虛擬現實成為生活的糖衣毒藥。藝術家們以現下既有的元素描繪未知的想像,部分卻也預言當代生活的未來樣貌,更成為此次策展的基礎。科技冷漠、戰爭、元宇宙、虛擬貨幣、數位身份認同、AI 等等議題,藝術作為當代洪流裡的小小波瀾,如何提出對現下及未來的思考,以『未來方舟』之名航向未知,啟發未來,為此次聯展的核心命題。

參展的六位藝術家來自不同的亞洲國家,台灣的藝術家當中,台美混血的巴梅莉以藝術觸及身份認同、數位浪潮、信仰文本,多以色調分離且超現實的故事風景為主調,奠定個人獨特藝術風格;第一屆中國信託當代繪畫獎首獎得主蔡宜儒的畫面,則展現了台灣中生代的成長養分,數位科技符碼融合八、九零年代的異想回溯,卻又結合當代時事或議題的思考。韓國藝術家DOY以其獨特的世界觀,描繪出跨越科技時代精神層次,像是闖關靈魂世界中的虛擬及真實;OTA則將自然植栽與人物互動的日常景色,靜物式的敘事風格呈現動態筆觸及特殊色彩美學,表現出動靜皆宜的生活樂章。日本藝術家官野良太以多元媒材結合傳統雕刻工藝為基礎,捕捉光的軌跡,再現自然淋漓的光之雕刻。宮本香那以細膩幽默的情緒筆觸,符號的轉譯也帶出更強的視覺張力,展示了人性的多元面向與心靈的五味雜陳。

Neptune Gallery is delighted to continue its commitment to international art by inviting six artists from Taiwan, Japan, and Korea to participate in a group exhibition titled “The Future Ark.” This exhibition will kick off a series of artistic events in the second half of 2024, showcasing the diversity and creativity of contemporary Asian art. The theme, “The Future Ark,” is inspired by William Gibson’s seminal 1986 science fiction novel Neuromancer, a cornerstone of the cyberpunk genre. The novel explores the complex relationships between technology, identity, virtual worlds, artificial intelligence, and the human psyche, influencing literature, music, film, and visual aesthetics. Through the lens of this novel, we delve into the unknown aspects of contemporary art, envisioning the future and challenging our understanding of reality. The exhibition will run from June 22 (Saturday) to August 11 (Sunday), and we warmly invite you to attend.

Before the advent of the internet, Neuromancer predicted and led people into a dark, chaotic, yet intriguingly unknown future, depicting the symbiosis of humans and technology where virtual reality becomes an alluring yet dangerous part of life. The participating artists use current elements to depict unknown imaginings, some of which predict the future of contemporary life, forming the foundation of this curatorial endeavor. Topics such as technological indifference, war, the metaverse, virtual currency, digital identity, and AI are addressed, posing reflections on the present and future through the lens of art. Under the theme of “The Future Ark,” the exhibition navigates the unknown, inspiring the future as its core proposition.

The six participating artists hail from different Asian countries. From Taiwan, Maria Barban, a Taiwanese-American, explores themes of identity, digital waves, and religious texts, often using color separation and surreal landscapes to establish her unique artistic style. Yi-Ju TSAI, the first winner of the CTBC Contemporary Painting Award, blends digital technology codes with the nostalgia of the 1980s and 1990s, combining them with contemporary issues and reflections. Korean artist DOY depicts a unique worldview that spans the spiritual dimensions of the technological era, exploring the virtual and real in soul-searching quests. OTA captures everyday scenes of interaction between nature and people, presenting a dynamic narrative style with a distinctive color aesthetic that expresses a harmonious balance between movement and stillness. Japanese artist Kanno RYOTA combines diverse media with traditional sculpting techniques, capturing the trajectory of light and recreating the natural essence of light in sculpture. Kana MIYAMOTO uses delicate and humorous strokes to translate symbols into strong visual tension, showcasing the multifaceted nature of humanity and the complexity of the human soul.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exhibition, where these artists will guide us on a journey through the vast seas of contemporary art, navigating towards the unknown horizons of the future.
