我會不斷的嘗試透過鏡頭捕捉那樣的畫面──讓我想起某個人、某件事、某個地方、或是生活中的某些感動。那些畫面毋須總是偉大的景物，其實在日常的平凡生活裡，就充滿了許許多多大大小小的共鳴，足以讓我們停下腳步慢慢品味。」 ── 范格斯 (Miguel Angel Vargas)
Telling Arts | 疊藝術 很榮幸地呈獻「范格斯攝影雙城展」，邀請西班牙攝影藝術家范格斯 (Miguel Angel Vargas) 將「光」、「蕈」、「煙」等重要系列作品帶到台北及台中兩個城市展出。名為「雙城展」，分別以台北Telling Arts | 疊藝術和台中b. LAB基礎實驗為展場，呈現一展兩地的互動連結，同時呼應范格斯 (Miguel Angel Vargas) 自馬德里移居台北的跨文化和時空背景。
「范格斯攝影雙城展」將於1月13日在台中b. LAB基礎實驗揭開序幕，特地邀請曾長生教授 (藝術評論博士、臺灣美術院院士) 擔任座談嘉賓，探討范格斯攝影作品面貌涉及到當代攝影的發展和跨越，並與范格斯 (Miguel Angel Vargas) 進行深度對談。「光」、「蕈」系列首度於台中展出，當中不乏獲得國際攝影獎項的作品，例：《影子的秘密》（2000 Premio SIGMA）和《超自然1》（2015 International Photography Awards）; 前者使用傳統35mm底片相機紀實，後者以蕈菇為拍攝對象和影像素材。
此展另一焦點為范格斯 (Miguel Angel Vargas) 最新創作「煙」系列作品1月27日起在台北Telling Arts | 疊藝術正式開展。歲末年初之際，我們期望透過「范格斯攝影雙城展」，那似曾相識的感覺，重拾忽略的美好。
“‘Sometimes a moment in time feels so familiar’….those words in themselves capture a feeling that makes me want to take a photograph.
I try to capture that moment, that feeling that can bring back a memory, that someone, a special moment, just like the normality of our daily lives.”
── Miguel Angel Vargas
