Itch 癢
November 19, 2019

宀畫廊本月呈獻,來自廣東潮洲人家庭的新晉藝術家楊志康(Connor Yang)首個個人畫展「癢」。他筆下所創作的通俗藝術,一律專注於性和自身性向的主題上,採用多種繪畫技巧把他所想呈現出來,包括他在家中以多層顏色混合的絲網印刷技巧。是次畫展「癢」將會與宀每月LGBTQ派對「HOST」一週年派對聯合舉辦。藝術家楊志康的話:「我認為性是正常不過之事,就像吃飯、飲水和睡覺,是基本需要。萬物生命都是源自性,沒有性就沒有我們。在我成長的環境教育下,人們將性這回事視為骯髒污穢,絕不宣之於口。若果公開地談論性,會被視為不體面,這些對性的態度深遠性教育傾向。我選擇以性為題,就是想呈現性可以是富藝術感,是美麗的,也是充滿力量的。」自數月前與朋友與了宀每月LGBTQ派對「HOST」,楊志康與宀畫廊便結下不解之緣。他自言在保守的中國大陸各平台都不願意展出他的畫作,宀畫廊榮幸地能提供可靠平台給新晉藝術家楊志康,公開展出其作品及與外間建立溝通之道。

宀 Gallery presented Itch 癢, the first solo-exhibition by Connor Yang, for one night only on November 20, 2019. Connor is an emerging artist currently based in Shanghai who grew up in a Teochew family. His pop-art illustrations fearlessly focus on the act of sex and his own sexual identity. Connor uses several printing techniques to bring his illustrations to life, including screen-printing which he produces in his own home. This exhibition coincides with the first anniversary of HOST, 宀 Club’s monthly LGBTQ dance party.

In the artist's own words:“I think sex is a very normal thing, like eating, drinking and sleeping. Life is from sex, sex is the origin of life, without sex then no me, no us. But in my life and in my education, sex is always differentiated, people talk about sex as if it is dirty and it is only discussed under the table. If you talk about sex in public it is very shameful, this has a serious impact on our sex education. So, I choose sex as a theme because I want to show people it can be art, sex is beautiful and powerful.”

Connor approached 宀 Gallery explaining that he couldn’t find a space in Mainland China to show his work due to mainstream conservative values and censorship. 宀 Gallery is proud to provide a platform for this budding artist to share his work with an open and accepting community.
