"LEIB/BODY" EXHIBITION OF WINSING ART PLACE ATELIER

YOUR BODY IS A BATTLEGROUND
展覽簡介
藝術家 Miriam Cahn 來自瑞士巴塞爾,作品從女性角度延伸至反核與社會議題,將濃烈情感揮灑於畫布,詮釋一股靜謐的張力。受原生藝術家庭的影響,Cahn 以敏感且強悍的視角觀察世界,作品用以夢境般的色調或炭墨來描繪體內的無聲咆哮,讓各種包覆情緒的載體與觀者連結。Cahn 的創作並非陳述訊息或引起對話,如同藝術家本身鮮少接受採訪的立場,主體本身即是故事,跳脫畫框的生命力不言而喻。
Background
Born in Basel in 1949, the Swiss artist Miriam Cahn creates her artworks from a female perspective to anti-nuclear and social issues, expressing strong emotions on the canvas, and meanwhile interpret a tranquil tension. Influenced by her art family, Cahn observes the world from a sensitive and tough perspective. Her works were painted in dream-like tones or charcoal ink to depict the silent roar from her body, allowing carriers with various emotions connect with the outside. Rather than aggrandize a statement or arouse dialogue, Cahn insist on letting her creations speak for themselves: the subject itself is the story, and the intentions, moods, and meanings are self-evident.
設計方案
Miriam Cahn 重視性別平等與人權議題,因此設計師選用具人文主義精神、且由女性設計的字體展現其理念。字體設計領域多為男性主導,但 Myriad 的設計者之一 Carol Twombly 是 20 世紀代表性的女性字體設計師,證明女性成就不亞於男性。此字體保留了人文主義的特徵,勾勒出經典俐落的輪廓,展現無所畏懼的精神。如同凝聚觀者的視線般,整體設計將文字資訊集中,毫無保留地傾瀉畫中人眼中飽滿的情緒。
Design
Miriam Cahn cares about gender equality and human rights issues, so the designer chooses a female-designed fonts with humanistic spirit to express her ideas. Despite font design field is mostly male-dominated, but one of Myriad’s designers, Carol Twombly, is a representative female font designer in the 20th century, proving that women’s achievements are no less than men’s. This font retains the characteristics of humanism; not only delineates a classic and neat outline, but shows a fearless spirit. Just like condensing the view of audience, the layout of poster concentrates the text information, pouring out the full emotions unreservedly in the woman’s eyes of the painting.
