Rain on the Platform - Tan Lijie, Selected Works

《月臺過雨》— 譚荔潔精選作品展

Overview | 概述

Exhibition | 展覽

This exhibition showcases video and other photographic works by the artist Tan Lijie evocative of multiple shifting encounters between lived realities and enchanted realms. The intersectional multi-dimensionality of Tan’s work gives rise to subtly transporting atmospheres as well as unfolding relays of indeterminate thought and feeling. Spaces combine, interchange and deliquesce; time slows down, accelerates, compresses, expands, halts and reverses; sound intersects with silence and noises on the edge of hearing; narratives begin only to fade out, commencing differently elsewhere and at other times; meanings, intentions and identities are in plain sight but never made entirely emphatic.

本次展覽將展出藝術家譚荔潔的影像以及攝影作品。這些作品生動地展現了現實世界與夢幻世界之間多重而富於變幻的碰撞。在譚荔潔作品中,交織纏繞的多元維度營造出微妙而引人入勝的氛圍,以及不斷鋪陳開來、充滿不確定性的思考與情感傳遞。空間交錯融合、互換流動;時間時而放緩,時而加速、壓縮、膨脹、停滯或倒流;在寂靜中,聲音與那些微不可聞的噪音不期而遇;故事起始卻又淡出,在他處及不同時刻以不同方式開啟;意義、意圖與身份顯而易見,卻又從未被完全突出。
