Hong Kong - Fou Gallery is pleased to announce that our represented artist Morgan O’Hara participates in Notating Beauty That Moves. Notating Beauty that Moves presents musical scores in the classical and contemporary hands of composers from the past and present. They are placed among works-on-paper, drawings, moving images, texts, photography, and paintings by artists who may or may not have been trained in music.

Two LIVE TRANSMISSION works by Morgan O’Hara are shown in this exhibition. Both of the works demonstrate the movement of hands of different performers while performing. O’Hara’s 30-year practice of LIVE TRANSMISSION series is culturally contextualized in the practice of drawing as a fundamental human endeavor. Tracking the trajectories of live movements, O’Hara condenses and transmits three-dimensional movement onto the two-dimensional plane of of paper. Following a precise procedure as she observes performances, she draws with sharp pencils in both hands and simultaneously translates movement into lines. Through her sharp, carefully controlled lines and orderly gestures, traces of various movements - whether it’s Larry Miller and his fan performing at Fluxus Festival, Sarah O’Goran removing of yesterday’s makeup, or Ikebana master Ken Katayama arranging flowers  - manifest O’Hara’s primordial nature and immediate concern for life.

*A series of concerts, featuring members of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the acclaimed Australian group Ensemble Offspring, will put a spotlight on the process through which musical signs are translated into physical motions. For more information of the concerts, please click here.

香港 – 否画廊荣幸地宣布,我们合作的艺术家摩根•奥哈拉的作品正在《谱写动态的美》中展出。展览呈现了从世界各地搜集的乐谱手稿以及不同艺术媒界的作品,而一系列特地设计的音乐会将会与展品互相呼应,揭示音乐家把乐谱上的音符转化为音乐演奏的过程,探索乐谱、演奏者与观众的多重关係。

此次展览展出了摩根•奥哈拉的两件“场境转换”系列作品。这两件作品分别记录了2000年皮耶.布莱兹指挥伦敦交响乐团演奏斯特拉文斯基《彼得鲁斯卡》(1911年版)时手的运动轨迹,以及2014年席琳·盖·库姆斯演出卢西恩·贝利奥《序列曲》竖琴部分左手运动轨迹。奥哈拉长达30年的“场境转换”系列作品的创作深深植根于绘画——这一人类的基本诉求,并且延续了历史悠久的写生实践。它要求绘画者与被描摹者的深刻连结,直接的观察与转化。对于摩根·奥哈拉来说,纸与铅笔不仅是记录的媒介同时也是观念艺术的呈现方式。通过跟踪记录事物的现场运动轨迹,奥哈拉将三维的运动传递到纸上,以二维的形式展现。她遵循着精确设定的步骤,同时用双手握住多只铅笔作画,将运动的轨迹转移到白纸上。不论是Larry Miller在Fluxus节上的扇子表演、Sarah O’Goran擦去昨日的妆容还是Ikabana大师Ken Katayama在进行花道演示的动作手势和各种动态都被奥哈拉纤细和精准的线条所描述出来,这些线条展现了奥哈拉的本真状态和对生命本质的关切。

特别提示:此次展览期间,香港小交响乐团乐师将与着名的澳洲组合Ensemble Offspring一同演出,为观众呈现音乐曲谱如何被演出者转换成诉诸感官的身体动态。更多音乐会内容请点击这里
