来自伦敦的艺术家Morag Myerscough在巴黎市中心的蓬皮杜广场打造了一座名为“A NEW NOW”(新现在)的城市装置。

作为艺术家在近期完成的首个重要公共作品,这座8米高的醒目雕塑旨在树立一种新的观念,为后疫情时代创造一个“新的现在”。该作品由Morag Myerscough本人在其伦敦工作室花费3周时间完成:一系列看似混杂的几何形状从地面“生长”出来,接着攀升至耀眼的、为跃动的色彩所簇拥的“A NEW NOW”(新现在)字样,意在通过简单而醒目的自信与乐观主义来激发路人的想象力。

As Myerscough’s first major public response to the current times, the eye-popping sculpture, standing at over eight metres tall, aims to set an intention, to rebuild a ‘new now’ post-Covid. Painted by Morag in her London studio over a three week period, the artwork is a multiple of chaotic geometric shapes, growing up from the ground and rising up to a strong neon statement: ‘A NEW NOW’ laid over a calm graduated sunrise, intended to spark the imagination of passers-by with simple arresting confidence and joyous optimism.

在伦敦出生和长大的Morag热衷于用色彩、图案和文字来改变城市环境以及人们对于空间和场所感的认知。她强烈的视觉语言给人一种富有冲击力且充满活力的感觉,使每个接触到她作品的人——不论地域和文化背景——都能立即对之产生共鸣。

Born and bred in London, she is fascinated by how colour, pattern and words can change urban environments and peoples’ perceptions of space and sense of place. Her strong visual language is instantly recognisable, energetic, resonating directly with all those who encounter it – regardless of geography and cultural backgrounds.

在博物馆和画廊都受到疫情影响的情况下,“A NEW NOW”这样的公共艺术作品致力于为人们带来归属感,把握机会重建更加积极乐观的新未来。这样的做法也呼应了艺术家一贯秉持的核心价值:“既要让走近它的人快乐,也要让远处即将走来的人快乐。”

While museums and galleries adapt to the pandemic restrictions, public artworks like ‘A NEW NOW’ strive to bring a sense of belonging, embracing the opportunity to rebuild a new more optimistic future and shared identity, echoing the artist’s core mantra: ‘make happy those who are near and those who are far will come’.
