第二人稱:觀看

Second Person: Observation

雖然說「參與式藝術」是晚進才出現的藝術實踐,但在後結構主義學者羅蘭‧巴特有名的「作者已死」論點中,那強調觀者的觀看體驗與閱讀方式對於作品文本的產生才具有決定性作用的視角,其實早已嗅到試圖將觀眾、也就是「你」的地位拉伸的一絲味道。近世許多藝術家也從善如流,不再緊握詮釋權、反而開始注重思考觀眾如何觀看與體驗自己的作品、作為其核心脈絡。

在展區【第二人稱:觀看】中,《 無知無覺 》選擇在政大最指標性的建築—四維堂創作全新窗花作品,吳耿禎將觀念性降低,回歸到單純模擬植物在校園各處無聲蔓延點綴空間的特性,讓重點圍繞在觀眾發現/忽略作品的體驗上; 《 炙陽 》則放棄在紙面上納入大量細節與故事性、一樣選擇了高度重複的窗花結構作為作品基調。Tim說:比起貼著臉近看燒炙的作品細部、他更希望觀眾的眼光可以穿越作品縫隙、看到後方由光組成的空間與世界。觀眾當下觀看湧出的感覺與心緒,才是作品真正完成的一刻。

Although "participatory art" is a form of artistic practice that did not exist until recently, in the well-known essay "The Death of the Author" (1968) of post-structuralism scholar Roland Barthes, spectatorship is the perspective that has the decisive edge in the creation of a text. In other words, Barthes was essentially extending, as early as in the late 60’s, the perspective of you from the audience’s side. Thus in recent times, many artists have decided to follow suit and let go of the "right" to interpret what his/her own work signifies; instead, they have begun to accentuate how the viewers are going to experience such works as the core context during the art creation process.

In the second exhibition section, Wu chose to create his work Senseless in the most symbolic building of NCCU - Si Wei Hall. The brand new papercutting work as window décor is less conceptual. It goes back to the basics and simulates how plants, in an unnoticed manner, thrive on campus and decorate the surroundings. In this sense, the focus revolves around how viewers should spot/overlook this particular work. Similarly, Budden’s work, Burnt Sun, does not incorporate too many details or stories behind. Instead, the artist adopts a highly repetitive structure as the foundation of this piece of window décor. Budden relates that he wants the viewers to see through the work and appreciate the light and shadow behind, rather than simply watching the delicate burnings of the work, and the work cannot be considered complete without sparking the audience’s inner emotions upon the very gaze at it.

《 無知無覺 》
Senseless

藝術家以圖書館的盆栽植物為描繪對象,對向人的五感知覺與植物的無聲無息,透過政大校園入口歷史空間四維堂,大面玻璃的光合,作用,放大的植物剪影,作為一個現代主義時期建築物的玻璃窗花。

The artist uses the plants at the library as the topic of portrayal, in response to the five senses of human and the quietness of plant. At Si Wei Hall, the historic building at the entrance of NCCU, the large window glass lets in an abundance of sunlight and the enlarged silhouette of plants seems to undergo the process of photosynthesis, forming a beautiful window décor in a building established in the era of modernism.

四維堂於民國47年完工、隔年落成,民國89年翻修為現貌。這個正方形兩層樓高的禮堂在當時的政大建築群中最為堂皇且功能多樣,文化盃合唱比賽、音樂節常年在此舉行,是政大最重要的建築物之一。其名取典於《管子》「禮義廉恥,國之四維」。作為進入政大校門的第一道門面,是校園的精神象徵。

《 炙陽 》
Burnt Sun

這組作品啟發自傳統木窗上的中式窗花設計。雕飾窗花的功能最初是為了讓室內空間兩邊的光線與空氣得以流通、同時也讓使用者能夠一窺對側空間的狀況。這些高度結構化卻充滿裝飾感的窗花強調穩定性、統一性與延續性。為了製作作品,厚板紙先經過剪的步驟再進行邊緣的炙燒。在炙燒階段由於火候難以控制,使得堅固的窗花結構開始部份瓦解。這種崩解啟示了世界的流動與不穩定性,也暗示火焰在生命循環中扮演的重要角色—摧毀、創造、與淨化

These artworks are inspired by Chinese latticework design as found in traditional wooden screens and windows. The purpose of these decorative screens was to allow air and light to pass through from one space to another in buildings. They also allowed people to peer through. These highly formalized yet decorative lattice designs emphasized stability, unity and continuity. In the process of making these artworks thick paper is first cut then burned. During the burning process the fire is difficult to control and the highly rigid lattice structure begins to disintegrate. This disintegration hints at instability and a world in flux. It also hints at the circle of life in which fire is a key element as it can destroy, create and purify.
