IMPerfect Creation 丑陋 与完美

Beauty cannot be seen if one cannot see ugliness

From 20 October to 12 November 2016, the award-winning contemporary sculptor Ch'ng Huck Theng is holding his first solo bronze sculpture exhibition: 'IMPerfect Creation' at SpACE@Collins, Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition is presenting 11 timeless bronze works created by Ch'ng, each carrying its own unique story, meaning and philosophy inspired by different people and happenings around the artist.
 
Through this exhibition, Ch'ng will be introducing a new perspective to the concept of beauty and ugly in which beauty cannot be seen if one cannot see ugliness. The artist's 'Ugly' bronze sculptures depict current society matters that encourage the public to look deeper into their hearts and souls when faced with issues.
 
Ch'ng is currently one of the leading artists and sculptors in Malaysia as this year marks the artist's 22 years in art. His works are collected not only in Malaysia but around the world by respected institutions that include the National Visual Art Gallery Malaysia, Singapore Art Museum, Hong Kong University Museum & Gallery, Shanghai Art Museum and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) in Paris.
 
Ch'ng's bronze creations have been hammered off in local and international auction houses, setting impressive sales records. The artist's works were also selected to be presented as national gifts by Malaysia’s Prime Minister to China, London and Melbourne. It has remained as Malaysia’s largest sculpture ever presented to the Chinese government.
 
Rupert Myer AO Guest of Honour and the Chair of the Australia Council for the Arts will be officiating the event. The highly anticipated exhibition is set to be held at SpACE@Collins, Level 1, 278 Collins Street during the exhibition dates on weekday 11am to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 3pm.

2016年10月20日至11月12日 获奖无数的亚洲当代雕塑艺术家庄学腾将于澳洲墨尔本SpACE@Collins举办的首个个人铜像雕塑展:‘IMPerfect Creation  丑陋 与完美’。展览会一共展出11件由庄学腾创作的经典铜雕,每一件作品均蕴含一段独一无二的故事,意涵与哲学,灵感全来自于创作者从周遭事物所获得的体悟。

透过此次个展,庄学腾将为美丽与丑陋赋予全新定义;如果一个人无法判断出何谓丑陋,那么相对地“美丽”也会随之不复存在。庄学腾透过命名为“Ugly”的铜雕作品向大众传递一道信息,那就是别忘了深入事物的内心与灵魂,而非仅仅关注表面。

庄学腾是享有知名度的马来西亚现代艺术与雕塑家。今年2016年是他踏入艺术界的第22个年头,如今的他俨然是一位享誉海内外的艺术先锋。他的作品不仅为国内艺术迷所珍藏,艺迹甚至遍布全世界,除了马来西亚国家视觉艺术画廊以外,连新加坡艺术博物馆,香港大学博物馆与画廊,上海艺术博物馆和巴黎国立美术学院也藏有他的作品。

庄学腾的铜雕作品在国际拍卖会上向来是炙手可热的拍卖品,吸引了许多买家热烈竞标,屡屡创下成交新纪录。除此以外,他的作品也曾被选为国家官方赠礼,被赠送予来自中国,伦敦与墨尔本的访问使者。这是马来西亚有史以来赠送予中国最大型的铜雕国礼。

澳洲艺术委员会主席Rupert Myer AO被邀请担任此次个展的主礼嘉宾。展览地点为SpACE@Collins,1楼,278 Collins Street。展览日期从2016年10月20日至11月12日止,星期一至五11am至5pm,星期六11am至3pm。
