卡西欧G-SHOCK x陈英杰“Formless”太极款联名合作

简介:

 

与CASIO G-shock系列的合作项目从2018年开始启动,经过了两年的打磨,“Formless 太极”联名款手表于2020年面世。

 

此系列手表创作的灵感来源于中国传统哲学《周易》中的思想——“易有太极,是生两仪”。孔颖达如是解释:太极谓天地未分之前,元气混而为一,即是太初、太一也。即天地万物从太极易变而来,太一最初易变为天地、阴阳,随后阴阳易生四象。艺术家将其对宇宙万物的理解和诠释展现在画面当中,探究时间与宇宙的联系。同时,艺术家将周易的思想与传统水墨画相结合,通过画笔具象地将阴阳易变中时间的流逝表达出来。

 

此系列手表的装饰元素来自艺术家创作的“时间”系列作品,如《太极行星》《太极意识流》等。

 

“《太极行星》通过现代水墨的笔触创作出太极轮回与时间和宇宙之间的微妙关系。12个圆形笔触代表时间制里的12个刻度,象征着12个运转中的太极轮回。笔触的流动、停顿和转折,仿佛老式挂钟所发出的时间流逝的滴答滴答的声音。

 

艺术家将太极、时间、宇宙的构成关系通过抽象绘画的形式进行演绎。12个像太极时间刻度的小圆,隐约可见也构成了一个大圆,如同宇宙中恒星的运转,亦如钟表里时针的运转。作品底部的最后一笔,由12个连贯的半圆组合而成,线索般静静地感受时间的流动,述说着太极运转的混沌奥妙。此外,《太极意识流》、《一笔圆》等作品的元素也相应地应用到了手表的装饰当中。"

 

“‘时间’系列作品表达了中国太极与时间轮回的概念。去掉繁复的绘画形式,艺术家利用“点线面”的笔触将虚无而真实存在的时间在纸本和画布上进行可视化。太极阴阳轮回的中国式符号将过去、现在与未来串联在一起,诠释了时间永不停止却又每日循环的真谛。”

 

Introduction:

 

The collaboration with CASIO G-Shock was launched in 2018, and after two years of polishing, the Formless Tai Chi co-branded watch was released in 2020.

 

The creation of this series of watches is inspired by the idea in the traditional Chinese philosophy "Zhouyi" -- "Yi has Tai Chi, is the birth of two instruments".Kong Yingda explained this way: Taiji that before the division of heaven and earth, the vitality mixed into one, that is, the beginning, too one also.That is, tai Yi at first changed into heaven and earth, Yin and Yang, and then Yin and Yang changed into four images.The artist shows his understanding and interpretation of universe in the painting, exploring the connection between time and the universe.At the same time, the artist combined the idea of Zhouyi with traditional ink and wash painting, and expressed the passage of time in the changeability of Yin and Yang concretly through the brush.

 

The decorative elements of this series of watches come from the "time" series, such as Tai Chi Planet and Tai Chi Stream of Consciousness.

 

"Tai Chi Planet creates a subtle relationship between tai Chi reincarnation and time and the universe through modern ink strokes.The 12 circular strokes represent the 12 scales in the time system, symbolizing the 12 cycles of Tai Chi in motion.The strokes flow, pause, and turn, like the ticking of an old wall clock.

 

The artist interprets the constitutive relations of Tai Chi, time and universe through the form of abstract painting.Twelve small circles, like the time scale of Tai Chi, are also vaguely visible to form a large circle, just like the motion of stars in the universe, and also like the motion of the hour hand in a clock.The final stroke at the bottom of the work is composed of 12 consecutive semicircles, silently feeling the flow of time like clues and telling the mysteries of the chaotic operation of Tai Chi.In addition, the elements of Tai Chi Stream of Consciousness, A Brushstroke Circle and other works are correspondingly applied in the decoration of watches."

 

"The 'Time' series expresses the Chinese concept of Tai Chi and the cycle of time. By removing the complicated painting form, the artist visualizes the empty and real time on paper and canvas with the brush strokes of ’dots, lines and planes‘. The Chinese symbol of the Yin and Yang cycle of Tai Chi connects the past, the present and the future, explaining the true meaning of the never-ending but daily cycle of time."
