【展覽論述】
二〇二一年張新丕個展—「熱帶天堂-合界」,乃延二〇一九年「疊加」個展「熱帶•樂園」巨幅創作之主軸。張新丕長期關注臺灣的土地環境,熱帶天堂其實就是隱喻我們臺灣整個土地環境所生產的現象,尤其是南部半島型氣候及他所形成的特殊地理及洋流影響著整個產業結構,從最早的甘蔗糖業,然後到香蕉、椰子及檳榔、鳳梨等,有他自己所形成的熱帶地圖與風土。身處這環境濕熱的溫度伴隨炫麗光彩的光線變化,形成一種「燒熱」身體感官,這些環境因素同時也影響著藝術家創作時的色彩與筆觸紋理。除此之外也反應著南部隨著產業結構改變了土地的樣貌而衍伸出的社會問題。
此外,張新丕也藉由這個展覽提出一個合界的概念,合界(kap-kai)很適合這個時代的意義,相傳過去平埔族會將彼此土地相連結的交界種植檳榔或椰子作為彼此的界線。現代人們雖然精確測量彼此的地界,然成長土地之下的植物生長盤根交錯的根部,是不會因著地界不同的劃分區分開來;藝術亦是如此,在這個時代之中沒有所謂絕對的「我的藝術、你的藝術」,藝術家之間彼此在課題及觀點甚至繪畫語言的處理問題上,其實是共時性的交互連結與影響。如同合界中的果實共享一樣,共同解決這塊土地上發生的任何問題。
【關於藝術家張新丕】
一九九五年生於屏東縣,法國巴黎國立高等藝術學院畢業,工作和生活於奧地利。加入當地藝術團體,並多次個展於法奧德地區。九三年回國個展於臺北市立美術館。隨即返鄉全心投入創作,執行「藝術協尋」計劃,探討藝術與創作者之間的關聯性,同時也在追尋文化上自我認同的過程中,透過繪畫、雕塑、空間裝置,結合所處的環境氛圍以及自我反思的態度進行創作。並籌組米倉藝術家社區協會,為當時閒置空間再利用之先驅,主要以切入土地和生產相關課題之裝置作品。
近年來,從獨立創作到參與新臺灣壁畫隊多次移地發表的集體創作,回歸到臺灣本土文化意識的呈現。在魚刺客團隊中所發表魚剌客海島海民一系列海洋課題之創作;乃透過對於臺灣環境多年的觀察與記錄,面對家鄉傳統養殖漁業因謀求生存而過度汲取產生的環境危機,用諷諭的手法將具體的片斷故事化。
海洋與環境景觀的改變,及個人國內外成長環境的多次變遷,不斷的自我身份認同再確認,是作品基本的調性。一開始就有意的讓這些有感的題材所形成的造形調性,和創作當下的筆觸情緒…等等,在過程中被當為謀合的媒材不斷被耙梳整理,形成演繹感的筆下風景。針對海洋與土地關懷為創作主軸,進而邁向自我辯證的過程,在看似唯美的畫面中隱晦的表達自己對臺灣的關懷。

【Statement】
Shin-Pi Chang’s 2021 Solo Exhibition, “Tropical Paradise-Joint Boundary” is an extension of his huge art creation “Tropical Paradise” from his 2019 solo exhibition “Superimposition.” Chang has long paid closed attention to Taiwan’s land environment, especially concerning the peninsula climate in the South and the unique geography and ocean current shaped by such climate. This influences the entire industrial structure including the earliest sugar cane industry, to banana, coconut, and betel nut industry, which forms our present tropical landscape. The humidity and temperature alongside the glamorous light variations in the tropical environment build up a “feverish” physical sensation. These environmental elements also influence the artist’s choice of colors and textures during each creating process. Furthermore, the impacts have also reflected the changes in landscape caused by the shift of industrial structure in the South, which led to various social problems.
Lastly, Chang also brings up the concept of joint boundary through this exhibition. Joint boundary (kap-kài in Taiwanese), tells the story of our age. According to legends, the Pingpu tribe planted betel nuts or coconuts at the land boundaries to distinguish ownership. In modern days, although boundaries now have their precise measurements, the roots underground will not stop intertwining or choose sides base on any land boundaries. It is the same with art. In a time like this, there is no such thing as “my art, your art.” Instead, there is a synchronicity within the tasks, perceptions, and even choice of painting languages among artists that influences and connects everyone. Just like how fruits born by the trees at the joint boundaries are shared by the joint owners, everyone should have a share in solving the problems happening here on this land.
【About Shin-Pi Chang】
Sin-Pi Chang was born in 1955 in Pintung county. After completing his education in École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, he worked and lived in Austria and had multiple exhibitions in France, Austria and Germany. In 1993, his exhibition in Taipei Fine Art Museum prompted him to return to his hometown to answer to his true calling and launched the “Art Discovery” project, exploring the connection between art and artists. His journey in search for cultural identity, coupled with the creation ambience and self criticism, was exemplified through his formation of painting, sculpture and art installment. Chang pioneered not only in utilizing decommissioned spaces and buildings but also organizing art groups in the A_mi artist community and were dedicated to art installments related to land and production.
In recent years, Chang has shifted from independent artwork to the mobile art projects of Formosa Wall Painting Group, and eventually to the local cultural awareness movement. His series of artwork in the Island & Islanders, Series of Fishsnipers is a genuine observation and documentation of Taiwan as a motherland. His art depicts the fragmented stories and criticizes with sarcasm how the excessive fish farming has posed threats to the hometown environment.
The alteration of maritime landscape, his own international experiences and cultural identity have all constituted the basic color palette of Chang’s creations. His deliberate selection of emotional subjects and intentional addition of his own sensation have merged to beautiful scenery. In his work, the ocean tends to open up a journey to self exploration and argumentation; on top of the romantic imagery, viewers can definitely discover the implicit affection of Chang to to this Taiwan island.
