“海明威之家”

這一款花磚復刻自海明威從1931年到1939年在美國基韋斯特生活的家,是一棟西班牙風格的二層別墅,被海明威買下并花了一年多的時間重新改造,如今成為博物館“海明威之家”對外開放參觀。

這款花磚被鋪設在客房的浴室地面上,以飛魚與海鳥為主題,是典型的新藝術風格,由黃色、白色、黑色三種顏色構成。

根據可考的世界水泥花磚史,雖然無法確認海明威之家花磚的設計師與制作廠商,但我們有理由推測,在水泥花磚和新藝術運動盛行的20世紀初,是海明威為他的浴室親自定制了這個主題的水泥花磚,展示著海明威對大海和飛魚的熱愛,甚至令人想起他后來創作的故事《老人與海》的片段:

“老人趁著夜色劃出港。海灘上也有其他船只出海。老人可以聽到他們的船槳入水和劃動的聲音,不過還看不到他們。老人在黑暗中聽見飛魚出水時的抖動聲。他非常喜歡飛魚,把它們當作他在大海上最好的朋友。”

 “復刻系列”將是見南花會持續進行的一個課題,從過去和現在搜索并記錄世界范圍內水泥花磚在建筑中的應用并在其中選擇兼具美學與獨特性的水泥花磚圖案復刻以致敬歷史。

This piece of cement tile is reproduced from the patterns of tiles placed in the house where Hemingway lived between 1931-1939. The house is a Spanish style villa, which was bought and redecorated by Hemingway, and now it is “Hemingway Home & Museum” open to the public.

The cement tiles with flying fish and seabird motif is placed on the washroom floor of “Hemingway Home”, which is representative Art Nouveau style, constituting of three colours with yellow, white and black.

According to the limited world history of cement tiles, we cannot know the designer and manufacture of this tile, but we think the patterns of the tile was customized by Hemingway himself because of his love for the sea, even making people rethink of the phrase of 《The Old Man and the Sea》 written by Hemingway.

“he began to row out of the harbour in the dark. There were other boats from the other beaches go ing out to sea and the old man heard the dip and push of their oars even though he could not see them…In the dark the old man could feel the morning coming and as he rowed he heard the trembling sound as flying fish left the water and the hissing that their stiff set wings made as they soared away in the darkness. “

 “Reproduction” is a continuous project of NANCHOW. We will search and record the application of cement tiles in architect in the worldwide?from the past and now and choose the unique and beautiful patterns to reproduce?as a tribute to the history of cement tiles.
