參展藝術家

羅納德・溫杜拿菲律賓

1973年出生於菲律賓馬尼拉的羅納德・溫杜拿,現今仍居住於當地並持續進行創作,是在東南亞區域的同世代藝術家當中受到高度評價的其中一人。溫杜拿的繪畫與雕塑作品,題材富含層層意喻,在東南亞當代藝術當中展現出獨特風格。他的作品特徵是圖像與手法交疊出繁複層次,橫跨超現實主義、漫畫、塗鴉等多樣題材。而將作品層次化的創作過程,也隱喻著菲律賓這個國家多元化的身份認同,除了土著文化,加上數世紀以來,遭到西班牙、日本、美國各方勢力所佔領後的深厚影響,衍生出複雜、不安定的身份認同。溫杜拿透過東方與西方、社會身份的高低、老與弱的圖像,企圖喚起人們對歷史性與心理現象的意識並深入挖掘,這在其作品中古典繪畫巨作與美日漫畫的圖像結合上可見意蘊。溫杜拿關注到一般大眾在無意識之中配戴上的所謂「文化意義」這「第二層皮膚」,將其視為「具表現性的表面」,在既有文化元素上進行紋身雕刻,在層層圖像的隱喻下,作為揭露內心幻想與糾葛的發表場域。
