Zimbiri

Zimbiri身為不丹皇室成員,同時也是一位活躍於全球藝壇的女性藝術家。她的藝術將不丹與全球、當代與傳統文化相結合,是一種完美的後現代綜合體。

Zimbiri出生於1991。 畢業於美國麻省惠頓學院(經濟與藝術雙學位)。 現居住與工作於廷布,不丹。

Zimbiri身為不丹皇室成員,同時也是一位活躍於全球藝壇的女性藝術家。她的作品從傳統的不丹文化基礎出發,然而海外留學的經驗也讓她的創作深受二十世紀⻄方當代藝術流派的影響,如極簡主義與色域繪畫。她的藝術是一種完美的後現代綜合體:將不丹與全球、當代與傳統文化相結合。

Zimbiri的作品以不丹傳統藝術中常用的媒材與技術做為起點:「saa-tshen」(天然土漆)和「 rhay-shing」(手工編織帆布)。這樣的媒材與傳統技術讓她所繪製的圖 像帶來了一種幽靈般、歷史感的存在,傳達了一種女性特有、文化的脆弱感,彷彿這些傳統轉眼即逝。Zimbiri的創作還使用了一種「tsapa」技巧,是一種不丹獨有的打孔模版,它能夠複製繪畫草稿的線條,使其能夠完美地轉移到牆上進行複製與繪畫。

她的首次個展《Faces》在不丹舉行,也是不丹歷史上首次女性藝術家個人展覽,展覽以人為主題,展示他們為了適應社會而戴上不同的「臉」。Zimbiri目前專注於以不丹傳統繪畫形式「saa-tshen」和圖飾紋樣為靈感,創作一系列作品。這些作品曾於第二場個展《Found Icons》以及近年的不期而遇藝術節(2017年)、印度藝術博覽會(2017年)、香港巴塞爾藝術展(2018年)等國際藝博會展出。尤其2020年英國倫敦亞洲藝術週(Asia Art Week)年度展覽主題為:印度與不丹,Zimbiri作為不丹代表藝術家參展,是當前國際上備受矚目的當代藝術家。

丹之寶自2018成立以來專注於喜馬拉雅當代藝術的推廣,近兩年極力爭取並邀請 Zimbiri這位備受注目的國際當代藝術家來台參展,丹之寶多年的經營與成果讓Zimbiri 與不丹皇室肯定,終於能夠在2022 Art TAipei首次曝光展出,ZImbiri十分重視此次在台灣的展出,並會以全新的創作參與展會。

不丹作為台灣新南向政策發展十六個國家之一,坊間對於不丹的認知管道不多,但不丹於台灣新南向政策與南亞文化的地理環境與重要性不可忽視,丹之寶身為全亞洲第 一個代理並致力推廣不丹現當代藝術的藝術機構,希望能將不丹國家特色與藝術文化介紹給全臺灣的⺠眾,ZImbiri的創作結合了現代與傳統技術,對不丹的圖紋裝飾與符號有著嶄新的創意與發想,身為不丹當代藝術的年輕代表,她全心投入當代藝術的領域,並希望藉由藝術帶領不丹⻘年藝術家走向藝術國際化的道路上,Zimbiri 希望藉由首次於台灣的展出,除了能將不丹當代藝術介紹推廣至臺灣,更希望能和臺灣文化與現當代藝術產生碰撞與火花。

 

Zimbiri Born in 1991

Graduated from Wheaton College, Massachusetts, double major in Economics and Fine Arts.
Lives and works in Bhutan now.

Zimbiri is a native of Thimphu, the capital of the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. Her works start with the traditional materials and techniques used in Bhutanese art: “saa- tshen” (earth paint) and “rhay-shing” (hand-woven canvas). These impart a ghostly presence to the images that she paints, communicating a sense of fragility, as if these traditions themselves might soon disappear. Many of her works also employ the technique of “tsapa,” this being the template of perforations which follow the lines of a drawing and enable it to be transferred on to a wall to be replicated and painted. Zimbiri’s works start from this traditional Bhutanese foundation but her approach is informed by schools of Western art in the 20th Century, namely Minimalism and Color Field Painting. Her art is a perfectly Post-Modern synthesis: combining the local with the global, the contemporary with the traditional.

Her first exhibition, Faces, was the first female solo exhibition in Bhutan. It was about people and their way of coping with society by wearing different ‘Faces’. She is currently working on a series of paintings that are an exploration of traditional Bhutanese paint (saa-tshen) and imagery. She has exhibited these works in her second exhibition ‘Found Icons’ and more recently in international art fairs: Serendipity Art Festival (2017), India Art Fair (2017), and Art Basel Hong Kong (2018).Zimbiri is a contemporary artist currently in the spotlight as Bhutan’s representative in the annual Asia Art Week exhibition in London, UK, 2020, entitled India and Bhutan.
