“Escher x nendo | Between Two Worlds”是nendo受维多利亚美术馆(NGV)之邀为荷兰艺术家M.C.埃舍尔打造的展览,将于2018年12月2日正式向公众开放。维多利亚美术馆是澳大利亚历史最悠久、访问量最大的博物馆。此次展览将展示埃舍尔的150多件作品。

The exhibition “Escher x nendo | Between Two Worlds” will open to the public on December 2nd at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne, Australia’s oldest and most visited museum. The exhibition will show over 150 works by renowned Dutch artist MC. Escher, famous for his optical illusions and impossible realities. Commissioned by the NGV, nendo was invited to collaborate and respond to Escher’s prints to create new work and exhibition design.

埃舍尔的作品以错视效果和非可能的现实而著称,以此为灵感,nendo将展览安排在9个不同的区域,每个区域将同时展示埃舍尔的艺术作品以及nendo的空间装置。整个展览以房屋的轮廓为主要意象,与埃舍尔版画中常常出现的鸟类、鱼类和昆虫等形象形成了呼应。这些房屋的尺度和材料将随着参观路径不断变化,从而带来与传统画廊截然不同的观展体验。

Inspired by Escher’s process and themes, the exhibition spans across nine areas, each displays Escher’s artworks alongside nendo spatial installations. Birds, fish, insects, and other icons that frequently appear in Escher’s prints have inspired the exhibition motif – the simple shape of a house, that will accompany the visitors, shifting scales and materials and creating an exhibition experience that transcends traditional gallery displays.





此次展览还将呈现一个从展览本身衍生而来的“House for Escher”作品系列:11个由黑白色金属“小屋”构成的艺术作品——它们原本是在设计阶段用于研究和试验的纸质模型。House for Escher代表了nendo对埃舍尔的艺术作品的一种回应,同时也是在向这次值得纪念的合作致以敬意。

The research and design process around the exhibition has brought about the creation of a new object collection that will be displayed in the show. What started as paper mockups and tests has evolved into 11 three-dimensional objects made from black and white painted metal. House for Escher is a collection commemorates nendo’s response to Escher’s art and is a tribute to a memorable collaboration.
