Like a Urinal in a Nightclub: Luo Jr-shin
2021.09.04-2021.11.28
Taipei Fine Arts Museum

Like a Urinal in a Nightclub is an exhibition comprised of installations, sculptures, objects, sound pieces, and site-specific work by Luo Jr-shin. The nightclub scene is adopted intentionally as a metaphor. As Note on the wall in a restroom of a Taipei nightclub so aptly put, a nightclub is where people and matter meet and interconnect, where “some golden liquid turn[s] into another.” This vibrant and extraordinary space provides a backdrop from which Luo extracts, edits, configures, and erases elements of idiosyncrasy. As if entering a live organism, the spatial experience introduced by the artist is temporal, visceral, and personalized (perhaps pharmacokinetics is an adequate analogy, visualizing physical spaces as organs, and movements of visitors as substances taking effect in the body). It foregrounds Luo’s ongoing focus on the affair between human and matter – essentially, how meaning and perception confer and morph between people and matter that have come into contact with each other.

《像是一個夜店的小便斗:羅智信》
2021.09.04-2021.11.28
台北市立美術館

此展覽內容以空間裝置、雕塑、物件、聲響和限地觀念作品所組成。以夜店的空間作為比喻並不是一個隨機的選擇,在「台北某間夜店廁所牆上的留言」中簡短卻也意賅的點出:這裡是人或物質彼此交會、交換的場所,在這裡── 「一種金黃色液體變成另外一種金黃色液體」。羅智信以這鮮明、性格獨特的空間為背景,將抽取出的元素再次編輯、配置並安插空白,像是進入一個有機體一般,這是一個具有時間性、身體感甚至個人化的空間體驗(或許可以用「藥物動力學」來比喻,空間比作器官,人的移動像是具現化了物質如何在我們體內發揮作用一般),帶出了近年他持續關注的──與人和物質有關的主題──即人或物在交會與交換的同時,意義及感知是如何被攜帶和轉換的。
