对话 | 爱德华·曾兹克 Artist Interview | Eduard Zentsik

独立映像:Hi爱德华,能和我们谈谈你的艺术经历吗?它是如何开始的?
爱德华·曾兹克:我17岁的时候决定成为一名艺术家。但实际上一切开始的还更早。小的时候,我就很喜欢几个小时几个小时的画画。那是我最愉快的时光。最重要的是,我享受创造的过程。

独立映像:你觉得自己的艺术在某种程度上受到爱沙尼亚艺术传统的影响吗?如果是,以怎样的方式影响了你?
爱德华·曾兹克:我觉得还是有一定的影响,但并不能说有多强烈。爱沙尼亚有一只很有影响力的图形设计流派。我喜欢不饱和的色彩、极简主义和象征主义。我爱爱沙尼亚,在这里感觉很好。感觉良好的时候,你就想创作新的艺术品。

独立映像:你可能希望每一位观众能从你作品的符号中解读出不同的含义。对你而言,作品中的符号意味着什么?
爱德华·曾兹克:是一些有意义的符号。对我而言,是自由的符号主义。所有任何解读都是存在的。作品完成之后,艺术家也成了一名观众。每个人都有权利拥有各自的阐释,不需要是一致的。这就是自由的符号主义。

Artist Interview: Eduard Zentsik

Independent & Image Art Space: Hi Eduard. Could you tell us more about your art career? How did it begin?
Eduard Zentsik: I decided to become an artist at the age of 17. But it all started much earlier. As a small child, I loved drawing for hours. This was my favorite time. And now most of all I like the time spent in creative processes.

Independent & Image Art Space: Do you think your art in some part is influenced by the Estonian tradition? If yes, how?
Eduard Zentsik: I think there was some kind of influence. I can’t say how strong it is. We have a very strong school of graphics in our country. Therefore, I like not saturated colors, minimalism, symbolism. I love Estonia, I feel good here. And when you feel good, then you want to create new artwork.

Independent & Image Art Space: You may expect each viewer to see their meanings to the symbols in your works. To you, what are the meanings of the symbols in your works?
Eduard Zentsik: There are unambiguous symbols. But closer to me is free symbolism.Therefore, any readings are permissible. When the art work is completed, the artist also becomes a spectator. Everyone has the right to their own interpretation and they are not required to match. This is free symbolism.

Independent & Image Art Space: Do you have any goals that you want to achieve with art? Did you get them?
Eduard Zentsik: Art for me is the goal. It is always changing and transforming. I feel happy because I can do art. Viewers can feel the happiness that the artist shares.

Independent & Image Art Space: Are you creating something new lately?
Eduard Zentsik: For several months I moved to a new studio and now I have plans to do something new. I also do digital art. ERROR concept. Art studies have always fascinated me.
