“我們來自一個黑暗深淵,我們結束於一個黑暗的深淵,我們把其間明亮的部分稱之為生命。”

—卡山扎基 / 心靈演習

“極光邊境”(Edge of light) 是藝術家陳淑強和吳季璁共同創作的光影裝置作品,使用台鐵數十年歷史的柴電工廠,空間中散置許多過去的設備、儀器、 鐵架、工具、和各式物品;當安裝上光源的軌道台車緩緩移動時,流動的光影映射出各種意像,關於鐵路、關於都市、關於山與海、本地與異鄉、還有許多不明所以的事物,展開一段記憶和想像交織的旅程。

鐵路載運我們從一端移動到另一端,離鄉背井、開創生活、追求理想、生離死別,滿載著親情、友情、愛情;而這往復的兩極之間,不斷書寫和

開展著人們的生命故事。

 

“We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the illuminous interval life.”

─Nikos Kazantzakis The Saviors of God

 

Edge of Light is the light and shadow installation collaboration of the two artists Chen Shu-Chiang and Wu Chi-Tsung. It is placed in the diesel-electric workshop of the Taiwan Railways Administration. The equipment, instruments, tools, and other objects from the past are scattered around the space. As the rail trolley, which is installed with lights, slowly moves, the flowing light and shadows project multiple imagery about the railways, the cities, the mountains and sea, the homeland and the foreign lands, and other unrecognizable things, revealing a journey which memories and imagination have become intertwined.

The railways move us from one end to the other. It represents the idea of leaving home, starting a new life, pursuing our ideals, and life and death. It carries our family love, friendship and romantic love. Moving back and forth, the interval of the two ends writes and develops the stories of different people continuously.
