此次展出作品是多件系列作品組成的繪畫裝置,延續自身創作的主要脈絡:繪畫空間,繪畫本身,以及繪畫的「空間邊界」,將繪畫視為物件去思考,透過不同的展示空間跟佈局會有不同的敘事出現,並同時揉雜不同領域對於空間的認知,例如:文學、建築。進而作為另一種理解繪畫的路徑。同時,在展覽呈現上,試圖模糊作品跟展覽場域的界線,轉換展覽空間本身的質地,似乎在尋找一個觀看繪畫的方式:遍尋不著卻又無處不是。作品名稱其實就是一個引言,標注著一字一句對作品的想像:整個創作過程,好像在解壓縮檔案,把一個複雜的系統,一層一層攤開,並以輕盈的姿態呈現。

(這是我們的容器,也許是在想方設法翻出容器中那足夠容納你我的空間,提供被佔據,被安放的可能。)

Pao-Leng Kung’s exhibition features a painting installation comprised of multiple work series. With the exhibition, she extends her creative context, which is constituted of the pictorial space, physical paintings and the “spatial borders” of the paintings. The artist views paintings as objects that unfold different narratives when they are displayed in different spaces and arranged differently; at the same time, she incorporates varying conceptualization of space in different disciplines, such as literature and architecture, into her works to reveal an alternative route to approach painting. In terms of the presentation of the exhibition, the artist blurs the boundary between artworks and the exhibition site, transforming the texture of the space itself. It is as if she is looking for a way of viewing painting, which is concealed yet all-pervasive. The title of the work functions as a lead-in, delineating the imagination about the work with individual words—the entire creative process resembles a process of decompressing digital files, unfolding the intricate layers of a complex system and spreading them out in a light and delicate manner.

(This is a vessel for us; perhaps we are trying every possible way to find the space for you and me to dwell, a possibility for us to be occupied and situated.)

Air vent
Where the space unravels, and sews up
Where the pattern on the ground bricks turn into a squashy painting
Layers and Layers of colours … bring out yellow of the fluorescence

Spectrum of plastics
See the surrounding colours intertwined then splashed

Maybe it’s you who pack these imaginations and unfold in your own eyes
Maybe it’s all about you,           all about containers
It’s like … you can fill an empty glass with warm water, and have them wander along your throat
You grasp it in imagination
You cannot identify, however


An edge with no start, nor the end

Save it, hold it, then put aside
