神祗-人-動物三者結合的化身,是藝術家用以模糊人類與自然、靈性與物質世界間的界線

柯沙.丹卓(Asha Dangol)畢業於加德滿都美術學院美術系,並取得特里布萬大學的美術碩士學位(MFA)。他是E-Arts Nepal與「加德滿都藝術家團體」(Kasthamandap Artist Group)的聯合創始人。作為一名跨領域當代藝術家,柯沙致力於藝術與繪畫的實踐創作,並自1992年起便積極參展,活躍於尼泊爾及南亞藝術圈。自 1992 年以來一直展出他的作品。他曾參與各個國家和國際藝術夏令營、工作坊和駐村項目,包括Jomsom 藝術駐村計畫以及Prashanta 獎學金的執行單位,並同時是 SPACES 雜誌藝術評論人。柯沙是奧地利維也納世界博物館「Nepal Art Now」展覽的尼泊爾藝術家之一,並且曾參與E-Arts Nepal的喜馬拉雅藝術營以及喜馬拉雅藝術節的籌備。曾經獲得「2003年阿尼科青年獎」、「2005年國家電影節最佳獎」、「2006年尼泊爾美術協會全國美展一等獎」、「2013 尼泊爾美術學院全國美展特別地區獎」,並且獲得尼泊爾藝術委員會 2015 和 2016 年印度藝術博覽會的補助支持,以及2019年尼泊爾投資銀行的維也納世界博物館展覽補助。

柯沙的作品已被世界各國政府機關與私人單位收藏,包括尼泊爾外交部、印尼大使館、尼泊爾藝術委員會、喜馬拉雅銀行、尼泊爾投資銀行、日出銀行、Agni 集團、Chaudhary 集團、富爾巴里度假村、Civil 集團、ACE Apartment、Jyoti 集團、尼泊爾藝術博物館、加德滿都賓館、麗笙酒店、庫通巴酒店、烏納提文化村博物館、肯亞加利亞藝術基金會、泰國安達曼藝術博物館、泰國垂直畫廊、越南 Flamingo集團、馬來西亞 Sasaran 藝術博物館、荷蘭Chautara畫廊、印度 DP Dhar 紀念信託、印度Vishnu Manchu 藝術基金會、印度Kalakriti 藝廊,以及尼泊爾和國外私人收藏。其作品可以在 www.asha-erina.com 或 www.eartsnepal.com 上看到。

柯沙的作品以社會關懷著稱,並擅長運用尼泊爾宗教信仰元素,反映尼泊爾在地及全球社會議題。其作品裡常出現神祗-人-動物三者結合的化身,是藝術家用以模糊人類與自然、靈性與物質世界間的界線。本次展出柯沙於2021年起繪製的新畫作共六件,其主題正是近年肆虐全球的新冠疫情。作品〈遷移〉、〈制止人類!〉不僅反映了大疫下人們自由行動的限制,也直指全球化下的人口流動是疫情迅速傳播的主因。〈狂怒喜瑪拉雅〉、〈狂怒聖母峯〉、〈新化身〉則表現出藝術家對於人類與大自然關係的反思,以及對於貪得無厭、為所欲為的人類行為的憤怒。〈疫後新生〉則是藝術家對於疫情終結的深刻期望,以及藉由此疫情而反思人類的角色、使自然生態能真正重獲新生的期盼。

Asha’s works are known for their social care. The artist is good at using elements of Nepalese religions to reflect local and global issues. His works often depict avatar (incarnation) which combines forms of gods, humans and animals. The artist uses this image to blur the boundaries between human and nature, between the spirituality and the material world. This exhibition displays Asha’s six new paintings of 2021. The common theme of the works, unsurprisingly, is the Covid-19 pandemic which has ravaged the world in the past two years. The works “Migration” and “Humans are Stopped!” not only reflect the restrictions on people’s traveling under the pandemic, but also point out that population movement in the era of globalization is the major reason for the rapid spread of the virus. “The Wrathful Himalayas”, ” The Wrathful of Mt. Everest”, and “New Avatar” show the artist’s reflection on the relationship between human and nature, as well as express his anger at the insatiable and greedy human nature. “New Beginning during Pandemic” is the artist’s profound anticipation for the end of the epidemic, as well as his hope that nature and ecological system can truly revive due to the dramatic reduction of human activities during the pandemic.
