CONCEPT OF ARTWORK

In this work, Wasinburee Supanichvoraparch has applied the ceramic patterns of Chinese Porcelain that once belonged to Augustus the Strong to a tiger sculpture. Augustus II traded his highly reputed Dragoon soldiers for 151 porcelain pieces to gain recognition and status as a powerful and sophisticated king. This story has always fascinated the artist and has regularly become a source of his aesthetic inspiration. Fundamentally, history can be written by the living. It can be good or bad, recorded or left unspoken. The voice and conversation we choose will result in the world around us, so let’s speak up for the tiger to preserve it for the future.

雕塑概念:

此雕塑看上去猶如一件博物館裡的古董展品。華欣布利・蘇帕尼奇沃拉帕契參考了17世紀末至18世紀初掌權的帝侯奧古斯都二世(Augustus II)珍藏的中國瓷器,以瓷器花紋為老虎雕塑增添獨特韻味。奧古斯都二世曾以其名譽天下的「龍騎兵」交換151件瓷器,希望藉此營造威嚴勇悍、德才兼備的帝王形象。這段歷史故事令藝術家深深著迷,亦啟發了他的不少藝術創作。


在古時的泰國,亦即暹羅,野生動物交易比比皆是,由於老虎價格高昂,不少地方均將之納入貢品之列。時移勢易,隨著社會進步,雖然野生老虎交易在許多地方已被立法禁止,但不少人仍因可觀的利潤及其他好處而以身犯險。如果我們任由老虎被獵殺而繼續袖手旁觀,百獸之王最終只會絕跡,淪為記憶與歷史。

華欣布利・蘇帕尼奇沃拉帕契是 Tao Hong Tai 瓷器廠的老闆,同時是著名的瓷器藝術家,而且在攝影、雕塑、裝置及公共藝術方面的造詣亦同樣出色。他在德國卡塞爾大學主修瓷器,並取得藝術碩士學位。蘇帕尼奇沃拉帕契一直堅信藝術應該是普及且可持續的。他創立了一所藝術中心 dKunst,並舉辦了叻丕府首個公眾藝術活動「Art Normal」。這位傑出的藝術家獲獎無數,囊括了多個全國藝術及設計大獎。


蘇帕尼奇沃拉帕契的作品曾於全球多個著名藝廊及博物館展出,當中包括德國的卡塞爾市博物館和當代瓷器藝廊,以及泰國的米高 。


他曾參與多場國際藝術展覽,包括第55屆威尼斯雙年展(2013年)、第3屆雅加達當代瓷器雙年展(2014年),以及第2屆曼谷藝術雙年展(2020年)。他的佳作備受追捧,除了成為私人藏家的珍藏外,亦是多個公共機構精心挑選的藏品,其中德國的卡塞爾黑森州博物館、以色列特拉維夫的自然精品度假村及水療中心,以及泰國的曼谷雕塑藝術中心、叻丕國家博物館和泰國文化部都展出過他的作品。
