苏州仁恒仓街正式启幕

仁恒仓街,地处苏州古城及观前商圈核心板块,由诸多世界文化遗产环抱,如耦园、拙政园、苏州博物馆、平江历史文化街区。浸蕴着千年姑苏文明古韵,这座即将全面亮相的城市地标也是肩负着传承至今的商业与生活方式的“更新”之地。伍兹贝格担纲仁恒仓街总体规划、建筑及室内设计,建筑面积达14万平方米。仁恒仓街,不仅将汇聚历史人文、艺术科技,成为一个多维灵感之地,同时也是回归古城,延续城市肌理的商业新空间。

国内外五位知名当代艺术家弗洛伦泰因·霍夫曼(Florentijn Hofman)、大卷伸嗣(Shinji Ohmaki)、李相守(Lee Sangsoo)、蔡赟骅(Jacky Tsai)、放射能数字艺术团队(atomic visual studio)受邀委任创作,以他们擅长的艺术实践为出发,横跨多种艺术表现形式,完成场域定制作品创作。

以仓街广场为起始,国际知名公共艺术家弗洛伦泰因·霍夫曼打造门户级公共艺术品,其灵感源于传统苏绣作品——喜鹊登梅,一双喜鹊飞出绣布叼着珠光闪烁的珍宝落在乌瓦檐头,清脆的鸟啼声将引领人们走进仁恒仓街这一“艺术园林”中,就此开启“寻珍之旅”。

苏州作为陆水交融,江南吴文化发祥地之一,苏州园林也同样荟聚各类传统器物,彰显着苏州市民对美好生活的追求。挪步于枕河广场,日本当代艺术家大卷伸嗣从苏州特有的自然元素与人文景观中汲取灵感,以诗意玲珑的画面构建起一个精致素雅的现代苏韵花瓶,致敬昔日匠人,守护艺术匠心。梦幻般的瑰宝器物,为城市天际线增光添彩。

步移景异,行至历史建筑三监围墙及岗楼,华裔艺术家Jacky Tsai以苏州园林景观展开姑苏幻想,花卉草木、锦鲤飞鸟等元素,创新演绎墙面彩绘作品,并赋予旧日建筑新生活力。当代时尚与传统文化底蕴交融,观者在此地遇见诠释苏式生活的现代美学。

闻声而来,光舞叠翠庭院。来自中国的放射能数字艺术团队以新媒体手法创作,将从苏绣中飞出的喜鹊作品动态化,打造夜间艺术投影作品,邀请观众跟随其在超现实的苏式场景中穿梭,共同踏上将珍宝藏匿于艺术园林中的旅程。夜间流光溢彩的叠翠庭院,值得驻足欣赏。

“寻珍之旅”不仅于此,自叠翠庭院拾梯而下,韩国知名雕塑艺术家李相守以其极具代表性的抽象线条语言创作了数只慵懒的小猫,散布于台阶上,鼓励顾客持续探索仓街中隐藏的艺术元素。作品亲人可爱的造型,营造了苏州慢生活的氛围。

漫步“寻珍之旅”,最终在苏州仁恒仓街寻遇“珍我”。国内外数位知名艺术家以当代手法融合苏州传统文化元素,与UAP携手为仁恒仓街打造永久场域定制作品,游园般的珍奇艺术体验,在新旧的完美平衡之间探索双面苏州的故事。
