Madline2.0 馳續逕行~ Solo Exhibition by Eddie Choo



Madline2.0 馳續逕行~ Solo Exhibition by Eddie Choo

Opening 12 Sept 2015 ( Sat ) 19:00
Exhibition :12 ­~ 25 Sept 2015

"I draw what i see when I drive where I go how I think who I am"
The artist apprehends that leaving behind the familiar place inevitability leads to a new voyage. The disorientation of streets, ports and the alleys fancy a river that drift towards endless ocean of uncertainties.
A voyage has two opposing points - the beginning and the end respectably. Suppose a voyage is just a fictitious space-time, the sceneries end at the point where the traveller arrived. The numbers of sceneries dictates the numbers of junctions. The possibilities of the end route are vast.
In “Madline 2.0”, the artist continues her voyage from the pervious exhibition “Diary of Madlines”. The artworks are expressed using basic elements of dots, lines and plane. The random yet mechanical qualities of drawings convey the traces of the artist’s voyage of life. The traveling lines and the impressed dots made up to the idea of endless route.
Madlines—being swift yet direct, tirelessly travelling towards the other side…

離開日常生活的城市後,抵達陌生的國度,开始嚮往著另一段新的旅程。關於這街道、巷口以及小徑,無法拼湊出方向感,猶如河流邁向神秘未知的大海。
旅行有兩個端點,一端是出發,一端是抵達,假設旅程只是虛構的時空,抵達時風景就結束。有多少處風景,就有多少分岔口,換句話說,途徑有很多條。
點、線與面構成繪畫的基本元素。駕駛這個動成為繪畫媒介,將旅程以點、線和面刻畫在紙張上。隨機性的因素與保持機械控制的質量,旅程的过程产生了實際的繪圖。遊走的線條與停頓的戳點反映了途徑。
身在异乡的我,馳線直情徑行 ,朝著線的另一端徑直奔去。

注:馳線(Madline)為粵語諧音「癡線」

艺术哲学课

講師簡介

卡夕,80後,台灣中興大學中文系學士,台灣中央大學哲學碩士。在台灣中央大學大學擔任了兩年半哲學通識課助教,接著在尊孔獨中、韓新學院擔任哲學、音樂、歷史、華文、藝術史等課程的講師。偶爾參與教育、音樂、影視編劇、藝術、哲學等社會活動,經常在媒體發表劇評、影評、書評、政治等類型的文化評論,研究範疇為藝術哲學、宗教哲學、後現代主義等等。現為<獨立新聞在線>(已停刊)與<東方日報>專欄作家。

課程內容

想像力-夢-愉悅-幻覺-精神病-開悟-崇高-康斯坦汀-席勒-康德-判斷力批判-上帝-宗教和諧-距離-張大千-移情-模仿-象徵-表演-拉斯馮提爾-行為美學-瘋狂與創作-醜-藝術終結-死亡美學-美的濫用-隱喻-突現美學-虛構與真實-畢卡索-徐悲鴻-張國榮-齊白石-影視美學-拯救與逍遙-藝術的終結-哲學的死亡-藝術的終結-自殺美學-化妝-網絡美學-藝術形上學-宗教美學-虛構與真實-pollock。

課程簡介:

  總結文明的進程,一個好的人類精神進化史,即是一個從感性朝向理性方向過渡的序列--這是我們當今的理性主義社會最主流的認知。它既是我們當代的教育、政治、價值系統的核心假設,也是我們社會運作的終極理據。
  
從家庭、學校再到國家,都可以被解讀為人類透過各種方式來「馴化感覺」的社會工程。從小學到大學對學生髮型、服裝、娛樂的操控,再到國家對人民集會的慾望的鎮壓,都是由上而下地管理著人民喜怒哀樂的感受。這種思維隱藏了一股對科技、數學計算和歷史理性之崇拜。在它背後,判定了「感覺」只是從屬於理性的存在,都是世界朝向理性更高階進化這個大計畫裡頭一個終需被取消的小環節。
可是,後現代卻是一個百分百感覺的時代。
  
為甚麼政治人物會花上千萬元來聘請公關包裝?為甚麼按like、facebook、instagram、自拍、sharing?原來,這些後現代文化現象揭示了舊有的社會、政治、文化價值所面臨的一個美學典範的轉折--「感覺」的世紀,也衍生出了美學的世紀。
  
本課程將以不同的角度與層次來探討這些問題。

Experimental Media Art Festival in Taiwan 2015( EX!T 6 )
【居所與他方:影像測量計劃 】 區秀詒個展
EX!T 6 第六屆台灣國際實驗媒體藝術展 台北-吉隆坡
 

Curator: Guo Jau-Lan (Taiwan)

Habitation and Elsewhere is a measurement project that treats images as the instrument and the psychological geography of Malaysia (the birthplace of the artist) as the orientation. On the imaginary path to modernization, the unquestioned spiritual dimension and geographical boundaries within Asia are reassessed in the form of images.

Habitation and Elsewhere seeks to address the following issues that interweave aesthetics with the reality. Firstly, many Asian regions are confronted with various problems concerning migration and implosion on their path to modernization. How should contemporary art respond to, investigate, and challenge these problems and thereby negotiate for a new boundary of Asia? Secondly, is it possible for artistic practice to rejuvenate a system and further subvert and reimagine the political structure on which the system is based? Thirdly, in terms of image and locality, in what way can art deal with images or perpetuate the tradition of images provided that art produces neither “reality” nor “truth”? Fourthly, how can such kind of artistic production respond to the reality, particularly the reality in places having long-standing folklore and folk beliefs? Fifthly, in terms of image and rights, Hito Steyerl has pointed out that “documentality is the pivotal point, where forms of documentary truth production turn into government—or vice versa.” In other words, the production of images dominates contemporary media. How can artists utilize media images to unveil or criticize the instruments of power manipulation and media propaganda?

Image machines and tools were once assigned the task of measuring in the long history of implements. Treating images as the point of departure, Habitation and Elsewhere tries to transform the instrument of measuring into that of calling for action. The term “measuring” usually refers to constructing the profile of things with a modularized mechanism. However, the measuring with images as the instrument in Habitation and Elsewhere is carried out by treating the artist’s own body as the reference coordinates, which removes the sham objective observation and posture between the artist and the objects being measured. This approach further turns the artist herself and the landscape of her cultural imagination into the objects to be measured. This project thus attempts to extend and enrich the connotation of “image,” particularly that of those flickering after-images lingering in our consciousness in the course of modernization.

「居所與他方」策展計劃,是馬來西亞藝術家區秀詒以其出生地馬來西亞的精神地理學為導向的影像測量計劃。在朝向亞洲現代化國家的想像路上,那些被認為毋庸置疑的精神向度與地理界限,重新在這裡被以影像的方式予以展開。

「居所與他方」試圖處理下列幾個貫穿在美學與現實之間的課題。1.亞洲不同區域在現代化的過程中,面對著各種區域移動、與內爆的種種處境,當代藝術的實踐如何回應、探問、質疑、進而重新協商其邊界?2.藝術的實踐有否可能重新活化一個系統,並對它所面對的政治現實的結構進行顛覆與在想像?3.影像與地方:如果藝術生產的不是「現實」與「真理」的話,藝術可以如何處理影像或繼承影像的傳統?4.這樣的生產如何回應現實,特別是在那些擁有豐富民間傳說與地方信仰的地方?5.影像與權利:Hito Steyerl曾指出,「紀錄性」即是政府跟真理生產匯聚點的影像使用。 影像的生產在當代媒體佔有主導地位。藝術家如何使用媒體影像,來揭示或者批判權力操弄的工具或是利用媒體作為宣傳的工具。

影像機具,在它漫長的工具史中,曾經被賦予測量的任務。「居所與他方:影像測量計劃」這次從影像出發的作品計劃,試圖調動「測量」計劃,成為召喚行動的步驟。「測量」通常意味,透過一個模組化的機制,把事物的形貌描繪出來;不過,這次「居所與他方:影像測量計劃」透過影像所進行的測繪,是以藝術家自己的身體作為基礎的坐標,這使得她與測量對象之間,不再俱有偽裝客觀的距離與姿態,反而是將測量的對象,轉向她與她所處的文化想像地景。如此,這個計劃將同時試圖延伸擴大「影像」的意義,特別是那些在現代化過程中,熒熒殘繞于意識中,忽明忽滅的意識殘影

Ashes of time 告白.告別 ~ 灰燼之後 Solo Exhibition by Chong Yi Lin



 藝術家自述

如尼采在《查拉图斯特拉如是说 》寫道: “你必须想要把你自己在你自己的火里烧死:如果你不先烧成灰,你怎能希望成为新人!”

在藝術創作歷程里,我探討將苦痛與無法言的悲傷轉化為生命的養份,重新建構失傷在生命的創造性意義人们身上留下的这些记忆,如同一种身体印记,承载着过去那段时间的伤痕印我嘗試著與記憶裡的我對話,與她告別。生活裡的物品如衣服是人的第二層皮膚,她是保護著我們的記憶,是人的精神寄託、以及影像記錄,一個存在過的時光證據。

這些都關乎于人與物之間的關係,以火燃燒或是燒焦的方式創作。那是一種有痕跡式的圖畫創作,可以不断改變、毁滅進而重生。那些有痕跡式圖像帶著情感與記憶,是永恆、真摯并有詩意的。經由烬燃的儀式,人們因告別而痊愈、因告別而重生,得以尋找另一層生命的意義

Documentary Flim《Ops Gading》《象牙行动》 by Leerang Bato

Operasi Gading by Malaysian government which aim to halt illegal farming turned out to be a food destruction operation and wiping out small farmers in Cameron Highland without mercy.
Since November 2014 Enforcement units were destroying small scale vegetable farms in Cameron Highlands and preventing farmers from continue farming.
This documentary is voices of the affected farmers.

简介:
以取缔非法耕地及非法外劳为名的《象牙行动》,将金马仑高原上的许多经营了多年甚至几代人的耕作地充公,铲平。这些每天为我们提供新鲜蔬果鲜花的农耕地,就是导致金马仑发生闪电水灾的祸首?还是过度发展旅游业才是背后的主因?而为何这些经营了几代人的农民,几乎都是耕者会无地呢?
人民记录电影工作室的周泽南深入金马仑,为大家解剖事件的始末,给予农民说活权利。

放映后导演将进行分享

Part II
2 pm - 6 pm

The participants prepare short verbal presentations with or without visuals to introduce their work. These presentations in which Astrid Köppe will act as the counterpart will be filmed, then watched together and discussed. The intention is to give the young artists a clear idea of the impressions they make - and how their conduct can be improved.

Participants should bring their laptops and portfolios (digital or print) if available, including CVs.A token attendance fee of RM 20 is to be paid to Lostgens.
