物物者‧非物 ── D.G. Lampaulus 2023年台北個展
Nefelibata - D.G. Lampaulus 2023 Taipei Solo Exhibition
The artist D.G. Lampaulus (hereinafter referred to as D.G.) holds a doctoral degree from Belgium and has Italian, Indonesian, and Chinese heritage. Following D.G. as represented by DVG TAIPEI, D.G. is also set to hold an exhibition at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall this September, marking the first Asian stop after a European tour. The exhibition, titled "Nefelibata," conveys the non-material essence of the "Dao," with the "Dao" being at its core. It explores the relationships between humans and nature, as well as the relationship between individuals and their inner selves, showcasing the insignificance of life and humanity's position in the universe. Through numerous artworks, D.G. will express his perceptions and experiences of nature, guiding viewers to see themselves and the world from a fresh perspective at the convergence of Eastern and Western cultures.
Reflecting the Subtle States of Mind on Life's Journey.
Covid-19 的疫情使得全世界都停了下來，但也是 D.G. 重新調整步伐、沉澱自我的新契機，並於疫情期間來台定居。 D.G. 具有義大利、印尼與華人的血統，長期旅居各國，深受世界各地不同文化的影響，也使他擁有多元的文化背景，以及與眾不同的人生經驗。
The Covid-19 pandemic brought the whole world to a standstill, but for D.G., it also became an opportunity to reevaluate his path, rediscover himself, and eventually settle down in Taiwan during this challenging period. With a diverse heritage comprising Italian, Indonesian, and Chinese origins, D.G. has lived in various countries for an extended period, deeply influenced by the diverse cultures around the world, granting him a unique multicultural background and extraordinary life experiences.
Drawing from his past learning and profound understanding of life, D.G. captures unforgettable moments and transforms them into his artistic creations, presenting the subtle states of mind that once existed. The outcome is filled with unexpected surprises and delightful charms. Scenes from his journeys come alive before our eyes as he harnesses his creative energy to translate each soulful experience into beautiful paintings and intertwines them with graceful words, shaping them into mythological tales.
Open the eye of the soul and trace the essence and value of life.
D.G. uses art and culture as a bridge to experience everyday happiness. What role does art play in our daily lives? Simply open your heart, open the eye of the soul, and embrace the sensory experiences that art brings; your mindset will naturally undergo a transformation. Just like the meaning conveyed in the artwork "The Vastness of the Minuscule": it is only through art that we come to understand the connection between the universe and life, leading to inner joy and happiness. True joy is not found externally but discovered by exploring within, allowing us to trace the essence and value of life.
Nefelibata：Exploring the Non-Materiality of the "Dao"
展覽名稱「物物者‧非物」表達了「道」的非物質性，並以道為核心，探索人與自然、人與自我之間的關係，展示了生命的渺小以及人類在宇宙中的定位。 D.G. 將以眾多畫作表達對自然的感受與體會，並在東西文化的交匯下，帶領觀者從全新的視角認識自我與世界。此外，本展覽亦以 Nefelibata 作為主題，在葡萄牙語中意指「在雲中漫步的人」，旨在期望觀者跳脫框架，重新定義思考與生活並忠於自我。透過 D.G. 獨特的視角，進一步思考自我與自然的關係，並勉勵觀者找回最初的自我。
The exhibition title, Nefelibata, expresses the non-material essence of the "Dao," with the "Dao" being at its core. It delves into the relationship between humans and nature, as well as the relationship between individuals and their inner selves, showcasing the insignificance of life and humanity's position in the universe. D.G. will use numerous artworks to convey his perception and experiences of nature, guiding viewers to see themselves and the world from a fresh perspective at the convergence of Eastern and Western cultures. Moreover, the exhibition carries the theme of "Nefelibata," a Portuguese term meaning "cloud walker," aiming to encourage viewers to break free from conventional frameworks, redefine their thoughts and lives, and remain true to themselves. Through D.G.'s unique perspective, it encourages further contemplation of the relationship between the self and nature, inspiring viewers to reconnect with their original selves.
本次的 D.G. Lampaulus 2023 年台北個展，以「物物者‧非物」來提煉創作中對於東方哲學中的世界觀，希冀觀者能夠透過作品轉化為Nefelibata──超越傳統思維的探索者，超越物質，超越盈虛！
In D.G.

以藝術傳承正向價值觀：D.G. Charity Global
Passing on Positive Values Through Art：D.G. Charity Global
而 D.G. 除了作為一位藝術家之外，他也盡己之力，以藝術發揮人道的精神，成立 D.G. Charity Global，其使命是協助以「家族」為單位的企業或團體，藉由教育和藝術領域傳承正確的價值觀念，以進行正向的串聯。
In addition to being an artist, D.G. also strives to promote the spirit of humanity through art by establishing D.G. Charity Global. Its mission is to assist "family"-oriented businesses or organizations in passing on correct values through education and the arts, fostering positive connections.
教育是 D.G. Charity Global 的重要領域之一。我們致力於為家族搭建一個全面的教育平台，涵蓋「金融」、「稅務」和「法律」等相關領域。藝術是 D.G. Charity Global 所關注的另一個領域，我們致力於推廣一個藝術典藏系統，以作為慈善關懷的循環基金。同時，我們還可以通過慈善拍賣、講座和展覽等活動，將藝術和慈善事業完美結合。
Education is one of the key focuses of D.G. Charity Global. We are committed to building a comprehensive educational platform for families, covering areas such as "finance," "taxation," and "law." Art is another area of interest for D.G. Charity Global, and we are dedicated to promoting an art collection system to serve as a revolving fund for charitable endeavors. Additionally, we integrate art and philanthropy through activities like charity auctions, lectures, and exhibitions.
D.G. Charity Global 對世代溝通也非常重視。我們將「公益實踐」作為家族永續關懷的核心議題之一，通過參與公益活動和慈善事業，家族成員能夠深入了解社會問題，並積極探索解決方案，最後付諸行動，以鞏固家族的正向價值觀和實踐公益的使命感，為世代共融的家族傳承樹立典範，並秉持著藝術慈善的理念，為社會帶來正面的改變。
D.G. Charity Global places great emphasis on intergenerational communication. We consider "public service practice" as a core topic for sustainable family care. By participating in public service activities and charitable initiatives, family members gain a deeper understanding of social issues and actively seek solutions, ultimately taking action to reinforce positive family values and embrace the sense of mission in serving the community. Setting an example for generational harmony within the family, D.G. Charity Global adheres to the principles of art philanthropy, contributing to positive changes in society.
