> DESCRIPTION

Bernar Venet exhibition in Kowloon consist of seven monumental sculptures that he created from 2003 to 2010 including one that was exhibited at the Venice biennale in 2009 and two sculptures recently exhibited at the Chateau de Versailles exhibition in 2011.

Questioning the relationships between art, landscapes and architecture with his rolled steel Arches, Indeterminate Lines and Collapses, the artist tells us a story visually about his path from conceptual art to public art, and how his installations and monumental sculptures make a lasting mark on the contemporary aesthetic landscape. Each series expresses different notions of his interest in the mathematics of order versus chaos.

Bernar Venet , whose long and distinguished career dates back to the 1960s, began producing monumental linear improvisations in steel in the early 1980s. His sculptures, considered as his trademark, have been exhibited in major cities worldwide and acquired by the most prestigious museums including the Guggenheim, New York, The National Gallery, Washington, Centre Pompidou, Paris, National Museum of contemporary Art, Seoul, Korea

法國雕塑家貝納.維尼在九龍所展出的七件大型雕塑都是他於2003年至2010年間製作的作品。當中包括一件他於2009年威尼斯雙年展所展出過的雕塑及兩件他於2011年在法國凡爾賽宮展覽的作品。

貝納.維尼利用捲曲鋼材製成的拱門(Arcs)、不定線條 (Indeterminate Lines) 以及倒塌的形態,對藝術、景觀和建築之間的關係提出質疑;以視覺言語向我們細訴他從概念藝術到公共藝術的創作歷程以及他如何利用裝置藝術及大型雕塑作品在 當代美學景觀上留下悠久的註腳。在不同系列的作品中,我們可看到他對數學中的秩序與混亂表達了不同的關注。

貝納.維尼長久而成功的藝術生涯可追溯至六十年代開始,及後他於八十年代用鋼材製作的大型線條式雕塑成為了他最廣為人知的作品,並於世界各地多個城市及著 名的博物館展出;當中包括紐約索羅門·古根漢美術館、華盛頓的美國國家美術館、巴黎的龐畢度中心以及韓國首爾的國立現代美術館。
