進入工業時代,名牌汽車作為現代量產世界中的最昂貴的消費品之一,其存在的情境非簡單的運輸功能主義所能解釋。藝術家透過古老的雕刻材料-大理石,假性模擬汽車和重型機車的造型,在單一材料去功能化的造型純化過程,企圖以傳統雕刻的技術回應現代的美感形式;而這看似再現的手法,其實也指向了現實世界中時代共通品味下的模糊理性形式。

Since the dawning of the Industrial Age, prestigious name brand automobiles have been among the most expensive consumer products in the world of modern production manufacturing. The circumstances of their existence cannot be easily explained by transportation utilitarianism. Employing the ancient sculpting material of marble, over the process of formal purification functional disablement, a faux automobile and motorcycle appear to endeavor to respond to modern aesthetic forms through the techniques of traditional sculpture. And this seemingly representational approach actually points toward nebulously rational forms of common tastes of different eras in the real world.

藝術家張乃文長年致力於雕塑藝術的創作,從早年抽象形式逐漸發展成具象的造像系統,並融合傳統宗教的圖像,發展其特殊的造型語言。透過一種苦行僧的毅力投入雕刻工作的勞動背影,在這實踐過程中逐漸構成它的形式與內涵。
