展覽簡介:

我遊走在國土的邊境,感受大海與陸地間的矛盾與寧靜。大海理應是孕育萬物的源頭,但是到了海與陸地的交界卻又顯得荒涼而寂寞,這裡有枯樹、細沙、雜草卻見不到生命的盎然,這裡了無新意卻常常有不同目的人們來拜訪。我徘徊在城市的交界,感受城市邊緣、城市交界的片刻安靜,在城市理應是繁華且急促,但是來到邊緣卻感覺落寞而惆悵,曾經的繁榮如今卻是佇立在城市中的廢墟且乏人問津,在城市與城市的交界顯得荒涼卻充滿生意。

我來自繁華且快速的都市,在講求效率與成就的社會中急急忙忙,邁著快速步伐的生活與擁有。在都市我在意別人眼光、別人看法與別人的競爭,而在邊境我就像個過客,沒有人在乎的任憑我感受這裡的每一吋樣光與空氣,這時候只屬於我一個人。

我透過相機,我以第三人稱與我對話,用影像記錄這一幕幕的片刻,這時候的影像代表不一定是呈現的真實而是身處邊境的感受,記錄當下感受。就如同蔣勳「孤獨六講」所講:「人群中,我們--該是時候,跟自己,有一次全新又全心的交談。

『花間一壺酒,獨酌無­相親』,李白知道『孤獨』是華麗的自負。『不生不滅,不垢不淨,不增不減』,每次讀〈­心經〉的句子,都覺得是在講最純粹的孤獨。」。而我就在屬於我的邊境,用影像形式,用我的方式,獨白。

 

 

創作自述:

我心中的風景有種影像經驗衝擊了創作思維。

《台灣報到:台灣美術雙年展》,我在那待了一個下午的時間觀看、思考或者放空,在這充斥各種媒材類型的創作空間裡頭,作品好似強力播送著創作者的理念與訴求,有一點點的吵雜與眩目。直到走進了轉角無人的長廊,一種安靜的氛圍襲捲而來。這裡展出郭英聲多年來以旅者身分走遍世界各地所拍攝的風景創作-記憶中的風景。他的影像以黑白色調與粗粒子為創作形式,呈現的風景不追求浮光掠影般美好或者到此一遊的紀錄。相反的透過類似心中獨白的口吻,秉持同樣的心境與意念,穩定的藉由不同地方與時間裡,相遇的景物表現內心的情緒,畫面呈現的模糊與粒子彷彿包覆了令觀者探索的生命旅程。

而在同時期展出的《風景。安靜》則是由曾敏雄對過去影像創作以來的成長、掙扎與學習的整理,同樣以黑白的形式創作,呈現出長期以來創作過程中,個人的呢喃、哲學思考與領悟的再現。藉由《風景。安靜》的書籍閱讀彷彿帶領我們經歷過了曾敏雄的攝影人生,從創作中看見各時期的思緒與見解,在經過時間推移,攝影經歷過的風景更是充滿生命的厚重感。

經過了感受與思考,我終於了解過去追尋的那模糊的信念與感受原來就是生命的厚重感。

回顧創作之初至今,我的作品始終多了一份深沉與獨白,我想留下的不只是突然間的感動,更是現在中面臨的生命軌跡。無論是靜物或街拍,在我選擇後的呈現都是帶點寂靜、灰色與空白,而這正是我希望保留厚重的表現。

現在,我也將這創作思維與感動不間斷繼續進行著。

—「在屬於我的邊境,用影像形式,用我的方式,獨白。」

Introduction:

I walk along the border and feel the contradiction and peace between ocean and land. Ocean is supposed to be the origin of all things on earth, and yet it shows desolation and loneliness at the border between ocean and land. Here has withered trees, sands, and weeds but no lively vitalities. Here has nothing new but the visits of different people with different purposes.

I wander through the boundary of cities and feel the short silence at the fringe of the city. In a city, there should be bustling and busy atmosphere; however, I feel lonely and melancholy on the fringe of a city. The once of a time’s prosperity now becomes ruins and still stands and waits for someone’s care. The border of two cities seems lonesome, and yet sings of life and vitality are everywhere.

I come from a city where is ostentatiously prosperous and fast. I live and own a fast-paced life in this society where everything pursues efficiency and achievements. When I live in the city, I care about other people – how they look at me, how they think about me, and how can I compete with them? But at the border of city, I am just a passenger. No one cares about me or no one wants to know how I am going to enjoy the sun light and air here. At this moment, there is only me.

Through camera, I talk to myself while pretending I am a third party here and record scenes of the moment by images. The image does not necessary present the real scene but it does record the feel of the time while standing at the border. It is just like what JIANG Xun said in his work “Gu Du Liu Jiang”; he said “while standing in the crowd, we – should know it is about the time to start a new and sincere talk with ourselves.” Poet LI Bai said in his poem, “surrounded by flowers, I prepare a jar of wine and drink alone”; LI knew “loneliness” is a gorgeous self-adulation. In the “Heart Sutra”, there are sentences of “neither being produced nor destroyed, neither being defiled nor pure, neither increase nor diminish”, and every time when I read that I feel it is saying the purest loneliness. And I am now at the border, where belongs only to me, and using my own way to soliloquize by images.

 

Artist Statement:

When I read the photography book, the scenery in my mind, its image experiences impacted my thinking to create.

At the site of “YES, TAIWAN – 2014 Taiwan Biennial”, I spent the whole afternoon to watch art works, to think and to space out. In this art space that was filled with all different kinds of medium type creations, art pieces seemed all trying their best to promote their creators’ ideas and appeals, and so created slightly noisy and blinding feel. Until I walked to a long corridor at a corner, I was finally released and enveloped in a quiet and peace atmosphere. In the corridor here exhibited KUO Ying-Sheng’s creation of landscape photos around the world, naming” the scenery in the memory”. As a traveler walking around the world, KUO’s image used black and white color and coarse particles as his creative style. His art to present sceneries neither looked after hasty happiness nor considered as a record of visit to the site. On the contrary, by the tone that was similar to soliloquy, he held the same frame of mind and thoughts and steadily expressed his own emotions by catching the encountered things and scenes in different places and time. The vague and particle feel presented in the picture seemed to cover a life journey that just invited viewers explore.

Also, the exhibited “Landscapes .Quietness” by TSENG Miin-Shyong at the same time summarized TSENG’s image creative journey, including his growth, struggle, and study. With also black and white creative style, his creations presented his personal whisper, philosophical thinking, and re-appearance of apprehension during his long creative road. Reading the book of “Landscapes .Quietness” felt just like going through TSENG Miin-Shyong’s photography life. From his creation, we saw his own thinking and views in different periods. Over time, the photographical scenic images are further decorated with the decorous feel of life.

After sensing and thinking, I finally realize the indistinct belief and feel that I was trying to find in the past is just the decorous feel of life.

Reviewing my works from the beginning of my creative life till now, my works are always covered with additional feel of profundity and soliloquy. What I want to keep is not only the seconds of touching moment but also the life track we are standing on right now. The selected images, regardless pictures of still life or street shots, all have a quiet, grey, and blank feel; and this is just the presentation of decorous feel of life that I always hope to keep.

Now, I am still and will be continuously carrying out such creative thinking and presenting the sense of touching.
