Appreciation towards Steve Messam for providing the following description:

Mellerstain住宅的发言人很高兴地宣布,Borders雕塑公园的首展XXX, 将在Mellerstain住宅拉开帷幕。展品是著名艺术家Steve Messam设计的三个令人瞩目的大型临时装置,这个令人兴奋的展览的为苏格兰边境带来了高品质的引人入胜的创新艺术品。Messam针对特定场地设计的作品表现出对于空间感,存在感和地域感的探索,每一个作品都和周围的环境相结合,扰乱、改变着我们对其的感知方式。Messam通过把充气雕塑和织物雕塑直观地融入建筑和景观中,将这个宏伟庄园背后的故事娓娓道来。这三件能带来快乐和振奋感的展品,创造了一个真正的视觉奇景。它们并不具有任何象征性的或具象的意义,人们必须来此亲身体验才能充分感受和理解。

Mellerstain House is delighted to announce XXX, the inaugural exhibition of Borders Sculpture Park. Comprising three remarkable, large-scale temporary installations by acclaimed artist Steve Messam, this exciting project brings high quality, engaging and innovative artworks to the Scottish Borders.Messam’s fascinating site-specific works explore a sense of space, presence and place, each one working with the surrounding environment to disrupt and transform the way we perceive it. By integrating inflatable, fabric sculptures very directly into the buildings and landscape, the artist seeks to uncover some of the many layers of narrative bound up in this magnificent estate. Creating a true visual spectacle, the three works are joyful and uplifting. They are not being symbolic or having inherent meaning, and have to be directly experienced in the environment to be appreciated fully.

▼“疏离”,Scattered

Messam将历史特征和大胆的当代雕塑实践相结合,让过去和现在有了一次生动的对话,为熟悉的景象和建筑新添了一个意想不到的临时次元。所有白色的作品都是对大理石雕塑的回应,最初打算用来它们为Mellerstain住宅的场地增色。虽然两个建筑内的展品可能看起来就是建筑废墟上的愚蠢荒唐之物,但将其置于此的确是有目的的,尽管有些神秘之处的作用要在某些特定时期才能体现。Messam用全新的叙事角度将这种不确定的历史延续至现在。

Combining historic features with bold, contemporary sculptural practice on a vast scale, Messam establishes a lively dialogue between past and present, adding an unexpected and temporary new dimension to familiar vistas and architecture. All white in colour, the works are a contemporary echo of the marble sculptures that were originally envisaged to adorn Mellerstain’s grounds. Though the two buildings within which the works sit might now appear like follies in a state of partial ruin, they did originally serve a purpose, although some mystery surrounds their precise use at certain times. Messam.

▼“尖锐”,Pointed

湖面上的“疏离”非常吸睛,能立刻引起人们的关注,而另外两个作品“尖锐”和“耸立”则比较隐蔽,人们要越过这片土地,走进美丽幽静的林间空地才能发现,这让整个观展体验更像一次发现之旅。

Although Scattered on the lake is an immediately visually arresting centrepiece or eye catcher, the other two pieces Pointed and Towered are more hidden and must be discovered on a walk through the grounds, into the beautiful, secluded glade, making the whole experience something of an unfolding journey.

▼“耸立”,Towered

“疏离”是一系列球体,看起来好像漂浮在湖面上的巨型不透明泡泡,形成了新的景观。这些纯白色的球体直径在2-4米之间,将宽阔的湖面分成了好几个区域,结合“疏离”本身的尺度,表面和光线,增强了湖面上的景观的规模感。

Scattered is a series of spheres that appear to float like huge, opaque bubbles on the surface of the lake, offering new views and perspectives. Between two and four metres in diameter, these pure white shapes disrupt the wide-open space of the water and play with its scale, surface and light, bringing a sense of scale to the landscape.

“尖锐”位于原门房处,填充了其内部空间,并从屋顶向外延伸。屋顶上的三米多高的28个极具动态感的尖顶,能使人联想到放射的光芒或者是定格的爆炸瞬间。

Pointed sits within the former gatehouse and Pekingese stud and fills the void of the building, extending out from the long absent pitched roof. From this re-imagined roofline 28 dynamic, elongated peaks rise over three metres into the air, reminiscent of a starburst or an explosion frozen in time.

“耸立”位于河边的老旧洗衣房内,高达8米的柱状充气雕塑从弯曲的墙壁中延伸出来。

Towered emerges from the curved walls of the ruin of the old laundry near the beck, its column-like forms standing over eight metres high.
