不平衡的美,爱尔兰,Matt Calderwood

爱尔兰视觉艺术家马特•卡尔德伍德以其古怪的平衡雕塑而闻名;他的“发现物品”系列是一系列精心摆放的物品,挑战了紧张、不稳定和平衡的概念。
卡尔德伍德也以其危险的行为艺术而闻名,他依靠平衡和摩擦来保持作品的稳定。他把运动器材、园艺工具、陶器、梯子和水桶等家用物品变成了不可思议的概念雕塑。下面的作品是一个团体展览的一部分,这个展览提出了反义词配对:平衡与不平衡,开始与停止,工作与玩耍。主题的矛盾性旨在挑战二元论的定义。正如展览声明所解释的,卡尔德伍德的作品提醒人们,“在艺术中,就像在生活中一样,并非所有不平衡的东西都是不美的。”

Irish visual artist Matt Calderwood is known for his outlandish balancing sculptures; his series ‘Found Objects’ is a collection of carefully poised possessions that challenge the notions of tension, instability, and equilibrium.
Calderwood, who is also known for his hazardous performance art, relies on counterbalance and friction to keep his works standing. He transforms household items such as sports equipment, gardening tools, crockery, ladders, and buckets, into improbable conceptual sculptures. The works below were part of a group exhibition that posed antonym pairings: balance versus unbalanced, starting versus stopping, and work versus play. The contradictory nature of the theme aimed to challenge the definition of dualism. As the exhibition statement explained, Calderwood’s work is a reminder that “In art, as in life, not everything unbalanced is unbeautiful.”
