• Anderson & Low

    Britsh, B. 1961 / 1957

    Jonathan Anderson和Edwin Low為一國際雙人攝影組合,從1990起採用「Anderson & Low」為兩人共同藝術創作的化名。他們的作品包含了肖像畫、建築研究、抽象畫面、報導和景觀等,主題囊括族群文化、身分認知、人物特寫、建築城市等,而他們最為人所知的則為對作品的概念、形式、採光及沖印等等的細節關注。出於對身體的動靜姿態與環境張力的觀察,運動員則為其主要靈感來源之一。

     

    Gymnasts-NDGT( National Danish Gymnastics Team)系列為Anderson & Low與丹麥國家體操隊合作的攝影作品,耗時三年,於1998-2000年完成創作。於此系列中,Anderson & Low使用四個大地元素:「風、土、水、火」融合體操選手運動的環境進行創作,大地元素的主題決定了整個系列的創作架構,促使丹麥體操選手必須突破以往體操運動的正常極限,重新衡量選手自身的平衡感,力度和耐力以表現身體的張力。在褪去衣服後,身體純粹的美感、熱度及未經修飾的力量感都成功顯現出來。這系列獨特的作品完全使用底片拍攝而成,過去電腦尚無法修圖,因此此系列作品的拍攝過程真實實地捕捉當下發生的一切過程,包含丹麥體操選手懸在半空中、潛入水裡和赤身挑戰火圈等高難度的動作。這系列作品一推出即因把現代的人體攝影融入古代經典運動身形的理念而得到認可,所呈現出來的作品具有強烈的標誌性。

     

    這兩位極富才華的攝影家特別於2015年於Bluerider ART展出具有回顧性質的特展,為十年來首次舉行。因長期拍攝與運動相關的作品,Anderson & Low在國際藝術圈享有盛名。Gymnasts-NDGT中,他們一起拍攝出古希臘羅馬的古典主義中出現的完美裸體身形,同時也把古代崇尚的運動健美身形轉換為一種抽象化而更具風格的作品。Bluerider ART此次展覽分別就此系列風、土、水、火四個主題各選出幾幅具代表性的作品展出,藝術家也特別為了在台灣的首次亮相而沖印數幅新作。

     

    Anderson & Low的作品在世界各地展出,並且含括許多博物館與私人收藏;Gymnasts-NDGT系列成功地把Anderson & Low推到了藝術攝影市場的最前端,自那時起他們的作品也開始在世界各地展出並被博物館收藏,包含: 英國國家肖像館,維多利亞&亞伯特博物館,澳洲國家肖像館,休士頓美術館,亞特蘭大藝術博物館,馬來西亞國家美術館,科羅拉多Springs藝術中心及美國佛羅里達州傑克遜當代藝術博物館。
