張山最新個展《尋找希望》,發想於電影新版「超人」衣服上的「S」所象徵的希望意涵。他重新詮釋超人胸徽,賦予每件作品上圖騰代表的意義,如同超人胸徽不僅是名號縮寫,更代表永不放棄、追求希望的精神。作品皆蘊含了代表希望的關鍵元素,如水晶或S型的圖騰,重新排列組合後,塑造出他欲呈現之追求希望的意涵,可能是幸福、好運、光明或財富,亦同時代表了年近中年的他,對生命與未來仍然抱持著熱情與希望。誠摯邀請您前來觀展,與我們一同探索您心中最深刻的希望!

CHANG Shan’s latest solo exhibition, "Looking for Hope", draws its inspiration from the "S" in Superman's outfit  and its symbolism for hope in the new "Man of Steel" movie. He reinterprets Superman's emblem and provides the meaning behind each of his interpretations. In one example, Superman's emblem is shown as being more than just an abbreviation of his name, but also symbolism for the spirit of never giving up in the pursuit of hope. Each of his works contain key elements representing hope, such as a crystal or S-shaped emblem. After rearranging and combining the pieces, they transform to create a representation of the artist's hopes for the future, such as happiness, good fortune, light or wealth. At the same time, these expectations and hopes the artist has for the future serve to represent the undiminishing enthusiasm and hope for life even as the artist approaches the middle-age. We sincerely invite you to come and take part in this exhibition and together search for hopes that you may have long since buried away in your heart!


關於張山

張山,1960年生於台灣苗栗銅鑼,善於將「陶土」燒製為深具「鐵鏽感」的藝術作品。他深深著迷於鐵所特有的肌理質感,彷彿歲月凝結於當下,蘊藏著深厚的歷史情感。題材上,他從自身對公仔的愛好出發,將大眾熟悉的動漫卡通人物重新解構,結合自身的想法及創意後進行再創作,一件件淘氣、耍酷、邪惡、霸氣的性格作品由此誕生。透過陶土的高度可塑性及鐵鏽的獨特質感,他創造了許多精彩豐富且具高度辨識性的作品。對張山來說,「玩」是其態度,更是精神與風格之所在。「玩」,不僅讓我們看見創作的無限可能,亦展現了藝術家反璞歸真、童心未泯的真性情。

About CHANG Shan

CHANG Shan, who was born in Taiwan in 1960, is skillful at making pottery with “rust” texture. He is deeply fascinated by the texture of iron, which full of historical sense as if time stands still at the moment. As for the subject, he starts from his love toward action figures, deconstructing popular figures in animation and comics and then recreates them in his thoughtful and creative ways. Artworks with naughty, cool, evil, and domineering character were born in this way. With the high flexibility of clay and the unique texture of rust, he has made many extraordinary and highly recognized artworks. For CHANG, “Play” is the attitude, the spirit, and the style. The ”Play” itself not only represents unlimited possibilities of the creation, but also shows a pure and childlike character of the artist.
