大卫·阿尔特米德:要么创造自己,要么毁灭自己



大卫·阿尔特米德(David Altmejd)创作的雕塑往往模糊了内部和外部、表面和结构、表现和抽象之间的区别。对于大卫·阿尔特米德来说,制作的过程是最重要的——他感兴趣的是如何建造一个物体的行为和非传统的材料使用产生意义。人体与衰变、更新和转化的关系是一个主要主题,最近的雕塑似乎要么创造自己,要么毁灭自己。

 “要么创造自己,要么毁灭自己”




David Altmejd creates sculptures that often blur the distinction between interior and exterior, surface and structure, representation and abstraction.

For Altmejd, the process of making is paramount—he is interested in how the act of constructing an object and the unconventional use of materials gives rise to meaning. The human body in relation to processes of decay, renewal and transformation is a principal theme, with more recent sculptures appearing to either create or destroy themselves.

His sculptures, which range from monumental to head scaled works, often incorporate a myriad of unexpected materials (such as plaster, polystyrene, chain, hair, quartz, mirrors, and casts of hands and fruit), the combinations of which can be captivating, disturbing or extremely poetic.

Motivated by the invisible worlds that often exist beneath the surface of things, the artist reveals the hidden structures in his own works through negative spaces: gaps, holes, fissures and crystal-filled orifices are a recurring motif.
