ARTINFO访谈 William Lim: 40年源于东方的设计灵感
21/10/2015
ARTINFO访谈 William Lim: 40年源于东方的设计灵感    William Lim 的所有作品都与身份这个主题有关。 闻名于他的建筑、公共装置、和艺术,这位香港本土设计师一直在孜孜不倦地探讨他家乡的设计与传统文化之间的紧密联系。 这个月, Lim的作品于ArtistTree 展出。展览将涵盖他 40年的建筑、 装置、和绘画作品,并伴随一系列的讲座与讨论会活动,致力于引发一场关于香港的传统和艺术的更广义的对话。 这次展览是由William Lim亲自策展, 以下是Blouin ARTINFO向Lim 提出的几个问题。   Blouin: 这次展览背后的理念是什么? William Lim: 作为一个在香港生活的中国人,我的身份赐予我的背景和传承一直以来对我的思想起着决定性的影响。 这个展览展示了我的设计作品: 草图、绘画、设计的过程、还有一些我收集的能带给我灵感和启发的东西。 我想对现在的年轻设计师表达两个想法。 第一,设计是一个漫长的过程。 不要期待在大学毕业后一两年就可以取得重大的突破。创作出能真正代表你的作品是需要更多的时间和学习的。 第二,我希望他们都能认真去了解、发现他们的文化,并且从中摄取灵感。 设计必须要与它的背景相连。 无论你在哪里创作, 那个地方的社会背景都必须能从你的设计中体现出来。 我不是让每个人都去了解亚洲艺术,但是如果身在香港,你应该这样做。 你在为谁而设计?设计需要与人们的生活方式相连,因为那确定了人们将如何实用你的设计。   Blouin: 这个展览不仅是关于你的作品。 在标题是Origin of Thoughts 那部分的展品里你收集了一些曾经启发过你的物品。 其中都有些什么? William Lim: 都是一些乱七八糟的东西。 我的灵感来源于许多不一样的地方。 比如说香港的环境,那不是一个单纯可以触碰的东西,而是不同东西的混合。 一块很老的石头。一个我在街上捡到的中国传统式的鸟笼教会了我如何用竹子制作模型。还有一些我多年来从中国、日本、泰国收集回来的物件。有一些 Frank Lloyd Wright 设计的东西里你能明显从里面看到日本的影响。还有一些是我自己设计的。   Blouin: 你有许多设计都用到了竹子? William Lim: 我认为竹子脚手架是非常能代表香港的东西——世界上没有另一个地方制作脚手架的方式和香港一样。 香港的脚手架只用到尼龙绳,没有钉子。 它的可持续利用性很高。同时这也是一个发扬香港设计的很好的方式。每当我在海外工作的时候我都喜欢用竹子。 我在威尼斯、中国各地都这样做过。竹子是个非常灵活的材料。 我能够轻易地组装和拆卸。   Blouin: 你返回香港之前在美国康奈尔大学学习。 你一直都觉得自己是一个香港的建筑师吗? William Lim:  我花了一段时间去适应回到香港后的生活。 我在这里的创作和在美国的是不一样的。 在这里,我要和更有限的空间打交道, 香港更加的商业化, 我们做的每一个设计都会有标价。 一开始我很难适应。人们会说:“噢,你是在为发展商工作,因此你无法设计出好的作品!” 但是设计是条双向道。 如果我们能做出好的、有力的设计, 它往往在 盈利上也是成功的, 商业模式其实给我更好的机会去做好得设计。 在香港的建筑师的拥有最有利的条件就是一切都能很快发生。在其他地方,你可能需要等八到十年的时间让你的项目被建成,而在香港只需一两年就可以了。 但这也是一个劣势:你被迫使要想的更快,更有创意,和更灵活。你没有那么多的时间去完善你的设计。还有更苛刻的客户。   Blouin: 你同时也是一位艺术家。 你是如何通过装置和艺术作品来表达你的想法的? William Lim:  装置可以是非常直接的和实验性的。 它会让快速地意识到自己的一些想法。 最近我也在做家具设计——一个手推沙发。 这是一个非常具有香港特色的东西, 它能让人们了解香港文化的流动性和灵活性。 但是我觉得我能更多地把香港元素融合在我的一些相对永久的作品里,比如说酒店设计。我常常与艺术家们合作。 他们去创造能够放在这些建筑设计里的作品。 我认为这些探索让我们能够更好地去传达我们的文化。   William Lim/FUNDAMENTAL: 40年源于东方的设计灵感 由9月5日展至27日, 在ArtisTree, 香港。 Published: October 20, 2015 Read full article here

Prostitution in the 19th Century Explored at Musée d’Orsay
21/10/2015
Prostitution in the 19th Century Explored at Musée d’OrsayFemale prostitution between 1850 and 1910 is the new theme of the Musée d’Orsay’s bountiful exhibition, “Splendour and Misery” (through January 17). However sensationalist and lurid its subject may appear, the current exhibition, whose title refers to the Balzac novel “Splendeurs et Misères des Courtisanes,” seeks to provide a comprehensive study of “the world’s oldest profession” in the 19th century. Disguised or not, prostitution flourished during the French Third Republic, which tried to control it even if it was not considered a crime. The exhibition reveals the extent to which the many faces of prostitution fascinated painters, both famous and lesser known. From the ambiguous “Shop Girl” of James Tissot or the equivocal “Waitress serving Beer” of Edouard Manet, to the inspiring “demi-mondaines” (“Madame Valtesse de la Bigne” by Henri Gervex), all kinds of prostitutes are depicted. Visitors to the exhibition also learn that young dancers known as “rats de l’Opéra” were in fact “sold” by their parents as prostitutes to wealthy old gentlemen (see Manet’s “Ballet or the star” from Orsay or Jean Beraud’s “Backstage at the Opera” from Carnavalet). Images of Paris de la Belle époque, an optimistic time period full of café concerts and famous cabarets like the Folies-Bergères, reveal what was happening behind the scenes (see Giovanni Boldini, “Celebration at the Folies-Bergères,” Orsay). Far from the glitz, the sordid aspect of prostitution is also evoked, notably through the representation of women sinking into despair and alcoholism. Another large section of the exhibition is devoted to the confined atmosphere of brothels, known as “maisons de tolérance,” which captivated many painters, especially Toulouse Lautrec. More than 20 pieces by this outstanding artist are displayed here, many of them coming from the rich collection of Orsay itself, like “In the Bed,” while others were lent by foreign museums such as New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. The show was enhanced by the expertise of the art director and set designer Robert Carsen. Some rooms are lined entirely with crimson velvet for a boudoir effect, and two others, containing pornographic photographs and films hidden behind red curtains, are even prohibited for people under 18. The tour ends beautifully with some modern masterpieces, such as the moving Picasso “Melancholia,” Detroit, 1902, depicting a prostitute held in the prison of Saint-Lazare.

21/10/2015
Gooding & Company Reports $206.5M in 2015 Car Auction TakingsGooding & Company has sold more than $206.5 million worth of cars in 2015, it announced on October 19. The Santa Monica, Calif.-based auction house, which holds three auctions annually, saw a 90% sell-through rate for 305 lots sold, for an average of about $675,000 per car. Forty-four collector cars, most of them Ferraris and Porsches, achieved prices of more than $1 million. The auction house’s top sale was the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider with coachwork by Scaglietti (pictured above), which sold for $16.8 million. The second, a 1961 “Sharknose” Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Speciale, sold for $16.5 million, and the third was the Le Mans-winning Rothmans 1982 Porsche 956 that sold for $10.1 million. All sold at the Pebble Beach Auctions on August 15 and 16. Rounding out the top 10 sales for the company are: the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider ($7.7 million); the 1960 Porsche RS60 ($5.4 million); the 1957 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe ($5.1 million); the 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupe Aerodinamico ($4.1 million); the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 ($3.9 million); the 1934 Packard Twelve 1108 Sport Sedan ($3.6 million); and the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 ($3.3 million). All told, the Scottsdale Auctions in January brought a total of $51.5 million, with 114 of 126 lots sold; the Amelia Island Auction in March achieved $27.0 million with 76 of 85 lots sold; and the Pebble Beach Auctions in August brought $128.1 million with 115 of 129 lots sold. “We are both thrilled and grateful for our most successful year here at Gooding & Company,” said David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company, in a statement. “The prices realized confirm the increase in demand in the collector car market for both pristinely restored, concours-quality examples, as well as highly-original vehicles.” Gooding & Company’s next sale, the Scottsdale Auctions on January 29 and 30, 2016, will offer a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB, a 1955 Bentley R-Type Continental, and a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster.

S**t My Cats Read: Rachel B. Glaser’s “Paulina & Fran”
20/10/2015
S**t My Cats Read: Rachel B. Glaser’s “Paulina & Fran”S**t My Cats Read is a regular feature in which Uni and Chloe Zola Volcano — two erudite kittens from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn — engage in dialogues with some of the sharpest minds of our times. Conversations are facilitated by their tireless helpmate, Scott Indrisek. Rachel B. Glaser’s “Paulina & Fran” is a novel about sex, art school, and post-graduation malaise. It’s hilarious and relatable and it made us wish that colleges would rethink their draconian policies re: kitten admissions. We spoke with Glaser about self-absorption, poets worth reading, and what does or doesn’t make humans despicable. UNI & CHLOE: “Paulina & Fran” focuses on human-female friendships in one’s late teens and early 20s. It got us thinking about that feline-derived adjective — “catty” — as it applies to the ways in which girls treat (and mistreat) each other. How do these alliances, cliques, and relationships evolve at that age? Frankly, it seems fucking terrifying! — and also very primal, in an animal-kingdom kind of way. RACHEL B. GLASER: I think conflicts and alliances are an aspect of social dynamics at every stage of life — toddlers on the playground, politicians in a debate, athletes in the locker room, love triangles in retirement homes. There is a kind of flirting within a new friendship — each joke or liberty taken forms the bounds of this shifting intimacy. This goes for friendships between men as well, and friendships between men and women, between people who don’t identify with a gender, between cats, between humans and animals, between server and customer, between strangers sitting next to each other on planes. Perhaps in college these friendships bloom and die quicker than in other environments because identities are altering semester by semester, and there seems to be an abundance of like-minded peers. I like thinking about Paulina and Fran’s conflicts in an animal-kingdom way — they are subconsciously evaluating if their friendship is beneficial or detrimental to their emotional and social survival. Are artists the most self-absorbed individuals ever, or are there other professions with a similar level of self-absorption? Artists tend to be self-absorbed, but they learn a lot from studying themselves, which often makes them smart and empathetic. I think athletes, psychologists, actors, and directors have a similar level of self-absorption (writers probably have the most), but again, I don’t think of it as negative trait. If you understand your own feelings, motivations, and fears, can’t you better relate to those around you? Artists (often) do productive things with their reflections. I really believe reading creates better understanding between people. Many of the characters in your novel are pretty despicable (although, to be honest, and paradoxically, in an occasionally likeable way). What are the challenges of writing a book in which there’s no single protagonist to fully admire, or model yourself on? I’ve been surprised with the percentage of readers who find these characters despicable. The worst things Paulina does is insult people to their face (instead behind their backs like everyone else), sleep with people for fun and sleep with people who are dating other people (pretty common for college-age society), lie, tattle on her enemy, jockey for power, wish ill futures for those who have broken her heart, and be vain, impulsive, and insensitive. Haven’t most of us done much of that? I found writing these flaws to be exciting. In a book with no murder or magic, these insults and slights drove the narrative deeper, and any time a reader begrudgingly relates, I’m glad to give them that twinge of recognition. Where did you find yourself living immediately after graduating from college? I moved to Brooklyn with three of my best friends from college. We lived in Greenpoint near the Pulaski Bridge. There was a wifi network called the Eagle Street Predators, so we became the Freeman Street Friendlies. You’re a poet in addition to a novelist. Who are some other poets that should be on our radar, given our admitted distaste for obtuseness, obliqueness, pretension, and rhymes Mark Leidner, James Tate, Chelsea Minnis, Chris Cheney, Michael Earl Craig, Seth Landman, Heather Christle, Leopoldine Core, and Halie Theoharides.  The art world, and art school, are both so ridiculous in real life (from what we’ve heard), that it must be hard to write a convincing novel about either one, in a comedic or satirical sense. Were you afraid that your fictional account wouldn’t be able to compete with the bizarre inanity of reality itself? I don’t find art school ridiculous. I think I find more ridiculous the lack of self-expression in other schools. I know contemporary art and the art world can appear ridiculous, but I like that it gets our attention — that what is valuable in the art world is so different than what is valuable in the business world, that visual experiments are worth so much money. Ridiculous is better than boring. Ridiculous is exciting, sometimes thought-provoking. I’m glad for all the sub-worlds within our world within all the distant unknown worlds. What are three books you would recommend that somehow informed the deep-level DNA of “Paulina & Fran”? “After Claude” by Iris Owens  (if you are not easily offended and don’t mind “unlikable” characters), “Leaving the Atocha Station” by Ben Lerner, and “Prep” by Curtis Sittenfeld.
