「我的創作主要借用BL主題,發洩自身對於身體經驗感受到的拘束與不滿,並將烏托邦式愛情關係的嚮往寄望於虛幻美少年間唯美的情感。在此宣洩多種慾望的過程中,產生了一種距離觀看的美感。」 —— 黃向藝

「綺麗風景——關於窺看的美感」從一個腐女的獨特視角,窺看美少年之間的愛情,凝視思考當今女性的社會性別和自我意識。黃向藝選用「BL」題材,透過傳統水墨工筆含蓄內斂之特質,勾勒唯美的形象,保有一段距離、一種空間; 亦由速寫筆觸連結自身的慾望、身體經驗和當下的真實情感,詮釋虛幻的妄想,呈現現實中更具體的日常樣貌。

黃向藝在台首次個展,以雙開幕的形式於藝風巷和私藝術兩地同時展出。《前篇》作品被賦予濃重的色彩,讓特定的人物角色和故事場景陷入惆悵的情緒和幽暗的氛圍。畫面中的美少年,眼神失焦渙散,時而沉醉,時而清醒,被擺放於泳池畔、臥房和浴室間。《後篇》作品著重特定的物件,隱喻畫面中的曖昧關係,滿足女性觀者的窺看意圖和慾望,跨越性別角色的界線。
“BL is the content and medium through which I express the sense of restrictions and the lack of satisfaction with my own body experiences. The aestheticised love between the characters is the projection of my Utopian love ideals, and by expressing and freeing different desires, one captures an emerging beauty when viewing at a distance” — WONG XIANG-YI

“The Glamorous Insight” displays the unique perspective of a female Yaoi fan that reflects on women’s gender roles and self-awareness as she pries into the love life of beautiful male characters. Taking BL (Boys’ Love) as her subject of work, WONG XIANG-YI explores the theme with her sophisticated fine-brushwork paintings and depicts neat figures with a sense of distance. The desire expressed through the sketches, the body experiences, and emotions felt at the moment of creation intertwine, revealing the fantasies as well as the realistic aspects of daily life.

Her first solo exhibition of WONG XIANG-YI in Taiwan, specially designed with a dual opening, is simultaneously exhibiting at Art Alley Cafe and Mon Espace D’art. The “Prequel” features artworks with strong colours and a melancholy atmosphere. These characters situated at the poolside, in bedrooms and bathrooms appear to be absent-minded, wandering on the edges of consciousness. The “Sequel” illustrates the ambiguous relationship between characters by setting emphasis on real-life objects, fulfilling the desire and intention of female spectators, and ultimately revealing the process of gender crossing.
