參展藝術家

弗洛倫泰因・霍夫曼荷蘭

荷蘭藝術家弗洛倫泰因・霍夫曼於2000年畢業於荷蘭坎彭基督教美術學院。隨後於德國柏林魏森塞藝術學院獲得碩士學位。霍夫曼透過重新塑造簡單日常的物件去激起大眾的感知度,作品所呈現出既熟悉又樂觀的感覺令大眾更容易去接觸藝術。他將這些題材製作成簡單但卻帶標性的圖像,通過它龐大的尺寸以及材料的運用去脫離並改變這些奇特的「玩具」,如2007年的《橡皮鴨》:一隻巨大的鴨型充氣伴浴玩具。此作品於法國、巴西、新西蘭、香港、匹茲堡甚至智利聖地亞哥等世界各地的港口展出。霍夫曼的作品都具有非常高的辨別度和吸引力,藝術家對週邊事物的關注使他醉心研究不同物料的可能性,同時探索形態和形狀的本質和美感。霍夫曼擅長將當地文化融入作品,藉此擴大自己的想像空間及引起大眾遺忘了的互動。他的創作關鍵元素包括社會參與度和大眾互動性;通過公共藝術,藝術家為大眾製作出一個與他個人美學的邂逅。霍夫曼創造出的喜悅讓大眾遺忘種族和宗教並與作品進行對話,亦透過放大作品的尺寸反映出人類的平等以及渺小。
