「第一個展」屬特定場域的藝術展覽,於「三十樓下藝術實驗空間」同步
展出。為「關於展覽的展覽系列」藝術家之一蔡盈楓策展,展出是次系列策展人袁敏曦之藝術作品。以藝術家與策展人之間的角色交錯,探討製作單位的架構與權力、場地與作品價值之間的關係。

第一個展,是第一個,展;也是第一,個展。
就是全新的「三十樓下藝術實驗空間」給人第一個印象。

小時候看過這樣的一個景象,一間純白的藝廊,坐著一個藝術經紀人,
一杯星巴克咖啡,一部MacBook;那個白盒子有三面牆,每幅牆前都有
一個作品。我的認知,那些作品都很高尚,價值不菲。它們的價值是因為它們在那高級商業地段展出,還是它們本來就值得那個標價?

或許那藝術經紀人只是一個普通接待員,那星巴克紙杯只盛著白開水,
旁邊的也不過是貼了蘋果形貼紙的銀色手提電腦。

然而我們總是被第一印象框住了對某些人、某些事、
某些作品的觀感與價值。

在這個稱之為展覽的展覽,其實是一個幻想與反思的空間。參觀過後,
你也許會問一句:「我到底看了什麼?」
而整個策展更想探討的是,場地賦予了作品價值,
還是作品提升場地的價值?觀眾可會記起,每件作品的價值
其實可以由觀眾賦予。

 

“First Solo” is a site-specific exhibition takes place at “Yet Thirtieth Experimental Art Space”. Artist Milky Choi from “Exhibition about Exhibiting Series” is curating the art pieces from the curator Donna Yuen. By interacting with the roles between artist and curator,
“First Solo” aims to explore the relationship between the structure
and power of the production units, exhibiting site and the value of artwork. First Solo is the first and ever exhibition; also the first, solo exhibition. It gives audience the first impression of Yet Thirtieth Experimental Art Space.

It was deeply in my childhood memory, there were an art agent sitting inside a gallery with purely white walls, a small desk with a cup of Starbucks and a MacBook. There were one artwork in front of each wall inside this white cube. In my knowledge, those works are very noble, valuable. Are they worth because they are on display at high commercial lots, or are they truely worth the price?

Perhaps the art agent was just an ordinary receptionist, who put an apple-shaped sticker on a silver laptop and drinking boiled water with a Starbucks paper cup.

However, first impressions always dictated our perception and value of certain people and works.

This exhibition, in fact, it's a space of fantasy and reflection. You may ask, "What did I see?" after visiting.

And the curatorial concept is likely to explore is the site endowing the value of artwork or the artwork enhance the value of the site. Yet, would audience remember that the value of each piece of artwork can actually be given by the audience.
