展覽介紹 About the Exhibition

家族紀事是私人記憶還是集體的歷史備忘?《越洋備忘》展覽從金門早年的出洋史脈絡出發,藝術家林羿綺透過追溯家中往返南洋的越洋書信,前往印尼邦加島實地踏查,創作出《信使I - 返向漂流與南洋彼岸》和《雙生》兩件影像作品,再詮釋後進行新的展示。

藝術家的創作以錄像藝術與實驗短片為主,上述兩件作品分別具有“紀錄片/紀實”及“編導式/虛擬”的迥異質性,卻在藝術家的創作中轉化成互為備忘的文本。本展覽特地蒐錄藝術家異地觀察的旅程經歷、創作時的文件手稿、與構思作品的創作素材並進行梳理,探究歷史文本在當代情境下,關於記憶、見證、移民等觀看視角,以及藝術創作上實踐的線索。

前人的經歷往往成為後人的備忘,作品自身也常在創作者的脈絡下互為備忘。本次展覽除了為金門出洋家族的離散經歷為記之外,也聚焦動態影像作品的本質性對話,進而擴延、形塑影像創作的多樣性。

Are family chronicles personal memories or collective, historical memos? Exhibition The Memorandum begins with the context of traveling out to sea from the early years of Kinmen history. Artist LIN Yi-Chi traces letters that were sent between her family and Nanyang and traveled to Bangka Island, Indonesia for investigations, which led to two image works, Nanyang Express: Trans-drifting and South Sea Crossing and Doppelganger, which are reinterpreted for display.

LIN mainly creates video art and experimental short films. Although the two works mentioned above manifest the different qualities of "documentary/documentation" and "fabrication/fiction," they are translated into works that complement each other through the artist's creative approach. This exhibition is a collection of the artist's travel encounters and manuscripts and materials of the creative process, all of which delve into the perspective of memory, witness, and migration in historical materials amid contemporary contexts and explore clues for creative practices.

The encounters of forebears often become memos for later generations, and works often become memos throughout the artist's creative context. Apart from documenting the incidents of Kinmen family members who traveled out to sea, the exhibition also spotlights the dialogues of the video works, extending and shaping the multivariate qualities of video art.
