      诚品画廊将于二〇一九年五月十八日至六月三十日举办王雅慧个展「时间简史」,推出艺术家自二〇〇五年至二〇一九年所创作的十八件空间雕塑、装置、录像与摄影作品,呈现她近十五年来对自然、时间、生命、变化等课题不同维度的思考与想像。此为诚品画廊与王雅慧首次合作个展,届时将同步出版艺术家小书,在其中收录她过去对五名东西方艺术家创作的讨论,以及新的创作观点。

      王雅慧为此展览选择不同时期的三件作品包括《日光下的静物》、《二十亿光年的孤独》、《热带计画:雪人》,以新的装置方式重新呈现,藉此与新的系列进行思考与美学的对话。新系列「流浪者之钟」是一个机械装置,它在持续前进的时间中不断变换图案,但在某一个瞬间,它会巧妙地栖身在世界的次序之中,随即又毫不踌躇地坚持着自己的流浪。「旅行者」是一个由时间、影像和物件组合出来的空间,原本独立存在而毫无关係的元素,因随机掉落的纸片的出现而生成了新连结,此后融合成为一个整体。大自然要如何看见?流转的光影在「时间之书」中像是一次次动人的落日抑或是日出,王雅慧以抽象的空间与缓缓变化的光块书写时光。经过水墨绘画、摄影、放大、输出等层层处理,「问影」和「对影」午后梦迴般的空间全然由影子构成。或许,空间也是我们的一种感觉?

      在「时间简史」一展中,王雅慧将当代生活的影像空间视为宇宙一隅,想像自己如同天文学家一般从中观察和想像,试图洞悉事物之间隐密的关係。「人的时间究竟是怎幺一回事?」她又如同《庄子》鱼乐之辩中的惠子,由此叩问出发,寻找着万物的内在秩序,继而回过头来理解人所能对应的世界。王雅慧所创造的一方之地既是浓缩的散文,也是视觉的诗,独特的宇宙观与哲学思辩蕴藏其中,在此地喧嚣消失、时间静止,浮光掠影成为人欲了解的永恆。

      ESLITE GALLERY is pleased to present “Wang Yahui—A Brief History of Time” from May 18 to June 30, 2019, featuring 18 installations, videos and photography works created between 2005 and 2019 by the artist. In this first solo exhibition in collaboration with ESLITE GALLERY, Wang shares her ruminations about nature, time, life and changes over the past 15 years. Alongside the gallery will publish an artist book documenting Wang’s discussion about five Chinese and Western artists as well as her new artistic direction.

      For this exhibition, Wang Yahui introduces Sunshine on Tranquility, Two Billion Light Years of Solitude and The Tropical Work: Snowman from earlier periods in new ways as an accompaniment to five new series. The new series “Wanderer’s Clock” shows changing configurations that evolve with time, except in a fleeting moment when the pointers align with the order of its world before moving on again in their own tracks. “Traveler” is a space composed by unrelated elements that form a whole when random scraps of paper stumble upon the scene. How can we see nature? Wang writes about time using abstract space and gradients of light in “The Book of Time.” Almost entirely invented by interplays of shadows, “Questions to Shadow” and “Cast Me a Shadow” drift like an afternoon daydream—perhaps, space can also be a feeling?

      In “A Brief History of Time,” Wang Yahui turns imageries of contemporary life into micro cosmoses and herself an astronomer observing the hidden relationship between nature and all living things. “What is time to us?” Wang is also the inquisitive Huizi debating about the happiness of fish in Zhuangzi. Her cosmoses are both a condensed essay and a visual poem. There, noise fades and time decelerates, so that floating light and passing shadow arrest for our probing gaze.
