Do you know Andy Warhol ? 你了解安迪.沃霍尔吗?Edited by Anara Emil


It is almost a sign of a bad taste when you like something very popular, like Andy Warhol for example (laughing). But it seems like I can call myself a bit of an expert when it comes to Andy. It’s been quite a long time since I call myself a big lover of pop art. I can’t remember when exactly I became so drawn by Andy Warhol’s work, but it feels like I have had this almost supernatural connection between my soul and Andy for all of my conscious life. So as soon as I heard there is an exhibition coming to Beijing, of course I knew I had to be there!

Andy had a history with China, he’s been to Beijing and Hong Kong and created several art pieces dedicated to China’s theme. One of them is portrait of Mao Zedong. Unfortunately “ Maos won’t work,” said Eric Shiner, director of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. “This is disappointing because his imagery is so mainstream in Chinese contemporary art” he states. But there are many rarely displayed pieces are showcased at the first exhibition in China to focus on the experimental, mechanically produced areas of Warhol's practice. "Andy Warhol: Contact" features photographs, installations, and films that broke the boundaries of contemporary art when they were first made, and still compel viewers today with their extraordinary immediacy.

Matthew Israel: “Unlike most artists of the 20th century or history for that matter, Warhol worked in great depth and did not simply dabble in many different forms of media. For example, in addition of being a Pop painter, as he is still characteristically known by most of the population as a filmmaker, a writer, a photographer, a band-leader (if that’s the word to characterize his involvement with the Velvet Underground), a TV soap opera producer, a window designer, a celebrity actor and model, an installation artist, a commercial illustrator, an artist’s book creator, a magazine editor and publisher, a businessman of sorts, a stand-up comedian of sorts, an exhibition curator, a collector and archivist, the creator of his own carefully honed celebrity image, and so on...Warhol, in short, was what we might loosely call a “Renaissance man”.

Andy left several autobiography books, however many facts about his life are still contradicting. He was really shy in the public, so it was a miracle to get open answers in the interview. He was a man of mysteries; maybe this was exactly the key to the huge interest from the media.

With Warhol all of this changed, as Art, as he liked to say, turned into Art Business, and he manipulated the mass media. Warhol understood media’s cult of personality, and he capitalized on this through his incredible ability to attract attention, or by being, in the words of curator Kynaston McShine, “in all the right places at all the right times.” Furthermore, Warhol always was with all the right people at all the right times, and he even said the perfect, catchy thing at all the right moments.

According to his biographers Victor Bockris and Wayne Koestenbaum, this was an idea that Warhol believed in and helped enforce though it was often not at all evident to some. For example, Bockris writes: “Andy was interested in denigrating the concept of heterosexual coupling as the be-all and end-all of sex, and present homosexuality as a normal practice.”

如果你所追求的是当下非常流行的品种,那么你很可能会被冠上“品味粗俗”之骂名,例如就像是安迪.沃霍尔的艺术作品(大笑)。但是当谈到安迪的时候,我似乎可以自称为这方面的专家。我自己从很久以前就狂热地爱上了流行艺术。我记不清究竟是从什么时候开始被安迪.沃霍尔的作品所吸引的,但是在我有意识的生命历程中,我感觉我的灵魂和安迪之间存在超自然的关联。正因如此,当我听说安迪.沃霍尔的作品展即将在北京举办的时候,我知道我一定不能错过它!

安迪对中国并不陌生,他之前来过北京和香港,并创作了以中国为主题的艺术作品。其中之一便是毛泽东的肖像画。可惜地是,“《毛泽东》画作并未被大多数人所接受”,位于匹兹堡的安迪.沃霍尔博物馆的负责人如此说。“这是令人感到失望的,因为他的画像在中国现代艺术是如此的主流”。他说。但是首次中国作品展展出了很多不为人知的作品,这些作品均侧重于沃霍尔试验性,机械性的创作实践领域。《安迪.沃霍尔:接触》为观众呈现安迪·沃霍尔打破艺术边界的摄影、装置、影像等多个系列作品。在沃霍尔所处的时代,这些以当时新媒介进行的创作曾打破当代艺术的边界,直至今日,仍以其卓越的即时性、直接性持续冲击、感染着当下的观众

马修.伊斯霍尔:“与20世纪大多数艺术家不同,沃霍尔的作品讲究深度,而且不仅仅只是涉猎很多不同的媒体形式。例如,除了作为一位流行画家之外,他同时还得到广泛认可的身份包括电影制作人,作家,摄影家,乐队指挥(如果这是指他加入地下绒丝乐队的话),电视剧制作人,窗户设计师,明星演员兼模特,装置艺术家,商务插画师,艺术书创作者,杂志编辑和出版人,还算得上是商人,喜剧演员,展览馆馆长,收藏家和档案管理员,对自己非常尊重的名人形象的创作者,等等...沃霍尔,简而言之,我们可以笼统地称之为’文艺复兴之士’”。

安迪留下了几部自传,但是很多有关他的生活的事实仍然存在矛盾。他在公众面前真的是非常害羞,所以能在访问中获得开放式的回答简直是奇迹。他是一个神秘的人;这可能也是媒体对他异常感兴趣的主要原因。

沃霍尔总是具备化腐朽为神奇的能力,艺术,在他手里转化成为了艺术商业,而且他还拥有引领大众传媒的能力。沃霍尔理解媒体的个人崇拜,而且他通过其无与伦比的人气将这些资源通通转化为了资本,这正如馆长吉纳斯东.麦逊所说,“沃霍尔总是在正确的时间出现在正确的地点”。此外,沃霍尔总是与精英人士为伍,而且他的表达永远是那样的完美,引人注目。

根据他的传记作者维克多.伯克里斯和韦恩.寇斯姆所述,沃霍尔所信奉并且帮助推行的一些理念有一些并不为世人所接受。例如,伯克里斯写道:“安迪有意贬损异性结合作为终极性爱或全部性爱的概念,而且认为同性恋是正常行为”。
