Sceneries for Reverie

米格尔·索勒·罗伊格: 冥想的风景

北京塑料三厂:在3画 廊很荣幸的宣布,我们将于2016年11月22日至2017年1月7日在画廊的“三层月亮”空间举办特别项目,西班牙艺术家米格尔(Miguel Soler- Roig )的个人展览《冥想的风景》,展出他的两个最新系列的摄影作品——受到东方主义影响的《在安达鲁西亚的天空》以及充满批判、质问精神的《逻辑的歧义》。此展览将作为对刚刚结束的巴黎摄影展[1](Paris Photo)J.P.Morgan收藏单元展中米格尔作品表现的一个特殊回应,以及作为同时期在北京开幕的中国-西班牙美术馆馆长的特别项目单元。

《在安达鲁西亚的天空》
这 个系列中,艺术家受到了东方学与摄影的影响,塑造了一个自我艺术灵感的空间。他从中不仅观望着实现他自我梦想的安达鲁西亚风光,而且去创造这种梦想。艺术 家描绘了置身于安达鲁西亚飞地的女性身体,例如格拉纳达的阿尔罕布拉宫,塞维利亚的国王宫,或是位于塞拉利昂 - 阿拉塞纳自然公园的祖弗雷的房子。这些照片中传递出的东方主义概念可以作为西方文化的镜子,或作为一种以颓废的方式来表达的秘密。

在这一 系列中,米格尔完全释放了想象力,试着从建构女性身体或者当代的视角重新诠释那无法挽回的逝去的兴奋。艺术家依旧无法从异国情调的迷恋中所逃离,从如哈 恩,格拉纳达,加的斯或塞维利亚等等这些城市。他还对中东地区最为普遍的一些陈词滥调和刻板印象进行了重新诠释:伊斯兰教后宫的情色主义,建筑细节的奢华 和丰富性以及乡村生活的内部,唤醒了我们类似的关注与渴望。

《逻辑的歧义》这个系列中,米格尔则深入探索了不具有一 致性的两难困境——比如外表与内涵、公共与私人空间以及在更为广泛的社会政治领域所表现出的两极的荒谬。为了反映这些跳跃的不一致性,米格尔在这个系列中 探访了一些在欧洲和美国的住宅,并且深入到了大众平时并不能进入的私人空间中。他将模糊手段控制在同一水平,使观察者产生怀疑。照片中所拍摄的地方是既高 傲又容易被忽视的,然而,由于经过了同质化的处理,那些地方在公众的眼中变得平等起来。在这里,他的摄影语言模糊了形式感,只留下了被闪烁的灯光所强调的 边界,从而带来了一个个发光的、延展轮廓的图像——类似于白内障的症状,由视网膜所造成模糊不清图像。

这些照片中的亮点让我们在不去定义 的情况下看到房间的空间性。而这种朦胧、云状外观、体现在建筑上的充分散景,反映出社会现实中意识形态的扭曲:既不是金光闪闪,也不是整个真相确凿可见。 图片中的模糊超过了所谓的“弥散点”的整个区域,因而创造出一幅图画效果。它类似于一幅抽象画、一个缺少参照物的建议,一个灵感或者是一种含沙射影(的批 判)。

Miguel-Soler Roig: Sceneries for Reverie
Being 3 Gallery is honored to announce the special project Miguel Soler-Roig: Sceneries for Reverie,which will be on view at Three Storied Luna Space from November 22,2016 to January 7, 2017. This project will present Miguel's two very new series of work:Under the Andalusian Sky influenced by Orientalismand Logical Ambiguities full of spirit of criticism and questioning. The project is in response to his just-concluded works presented by JP Morgan Private Bank exhibition "PhotoPlay: Pictures-in-Pictures" in Paris Photo.[1] (9-13th, November) and as a collateral project of China-Spain Art Forum to be held in Beijing.   

In the series Under the Andalusian Sky, Miguel has been influenced by the simultaneous birth of orientalism and photography, creating an inspirational artistic space. Not only did he looks at al-Andalus scenery to realize his dreams, but to recreate them. The author portrays the female figure in enclaves of al-Andalus such as the Alhambra in Granada, the King’s Palace in Seville, or the houses of Zufre in the Natural Park of Sierra de Aracena. The concept of Orientalism given in these photographs serves as a mirror of Western culture itself, or as a way to express their secrets in a decadent way.

In this photography series, Soler-Roig gives free rein to his imagination, experimenting the architecture, the female body or the exaltation of an irretrievable past reinterpreted from a contemporary look. The artist is still unable to escape from the fascination of exotic places like Jaen, Granada, Cadiz or Seville, among other cities. He carries out a reinterpreting exercise of some of the clichés and stereotypes most widespread in the Middle East: the eroticism of the harem, the sumptuousness and richness of architectural details and the domestic interiors of rural life, awake in us similar concerns and desires.

In the series of Logical Ambiguity, he delves into the dilemma of inconsistency - such as appearance and connotation, public and private space, and absurd bipolarity manifested in the broader social and political realms. In order to reflect on these jumps and inconsistencies, he in this series checks out some stately residences in Europe and America and delves into the private rooms that are not usually visited by guests. Soler-Roig using a blurring technique puts them on the same level in order to sow doubt in the observer. They are photographs of equally ostentatious and neglected places, however, due to the homogenizing treatment they have been subjected, have become equals in the eyes of the public. Here, his photographic language blurs forms, leaving only boundaries accentuated by flashing lights which provide to the images a glowing widespread appearance, similar to that caused by cataracts, where images appear fuzzy blur by the retina.

The bright spots give us glimpses of the room’s spatiality without defining it at all. This hazy and cloudy appearance caused by a full bokeh, reflected in the architecture, refers to the ideological distortion of social reality: is not gold all that glitters, nor the whole truth visible. The blur in the pictures exceeds the whole area of the called “circle of confusion”, creating a pictorial effect. It resembles an abstract painting; more than a reference it becomes a suggestion, an inspiration or insinuation.
[1] Drawn from the JP Morgan Chase Art Collection and Chosen by the late Lisa K.Erf, the collection's chief curator, the show will showcase an international roster of artists, Photoplay brings together works that explore the potential for images within images, as a theme or effect, to create narrative and meaning that evolve, collide, confuse, entertain and illuminate.
