Ari Bayuaji on show in The Stewart Museum, Montreal
值得一提的是，受策展人Iris Amizlev所邀，貝瓦吉將和華裔加拿大視覺藝術家靳華（Hua Jin）共同創作本次特展《花與獸│Flowers and Monsters》。靳華擅長以攝影作品捕捉每一個頃刻，諸如時間、生命、或任意的微物。儘管目前兩位藝術家均長期定居於蒙特婁，創作內涵卻未盡皆西化，因此我們依然可以期待在博物館偌大的展場空間中，看見他們如何運用不同的創作媒材，帶來一場東方視野的哲學對話。
Ari Bayuaji is in the midst of the preparation for the exhibition in Montreal, Canada, presenting in March next year. Different from the past projects using mixed media to present, in this exhibition, Bayuaji uses wood as a main media, and matches some old ready-made objects, such as marble base, ceramics and even wood components that are painted and hand-cut on their surface. It is expected to exhibit six sculptures, four wall sculptures, two large installation artworks, two paintings, four photography works, and a video installation.
It is worth mentioning that, curator Iris Amizlev also invites Chinese Canadian visual artist Hua Jin to exhibit with Bayuaji in "Flowers and Monsters" exhibition. Jin’s works focuses on a worldview that embraces the concept of transience: of time, of life, and of everyday objects. Although both artists have settled in Montreal for a long time, the content of their creations have not been fully westernized, so we can still expect to see the oriental philosophy between different medias in the exhibition.
