Artes Mundi - Wu Chi-Tsung

 

藝術家吳季璁於世界最受矚目的藝術獎之一「Artes Mundi世界藝術獎」獲得提名

Young Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung is one of eight short-listed artists for the Artes Mundi Prize (Arts of the World) awarded by the National Museum, Cardiff, UK, the largest international prize awarded to an individual artist. This is the second year for the prestigious award and the first time for a Taiwanese artist to be nominated.

Wu, whose work is noteworthy for its exploration of imagery via video, photography and mechanical instal-lation, is currently exhibiting his art for the first time in the UK at the Artes Mundi exhibition that ends on May 7.

The eight selected artists — from India, Finland, South America, Europe and Taiwan — are regarded as having made significant contributions to the world’s understanding about the human condition. The prize will be awarded to one of the selected artists on March 31.

I truly believe that  photographing  is an instant., not for how fast the shutter can be, but the thin layer of  images. No matter where the layer attaches to, films, paper or screens, it  always looks like sort of slice.

All I try to say is, if  spending a day on a photo, the day becomes an instant.

 

我深信攝影就是「瞬間」,倒不是因為快門多快,而是那薄薄的一層影像,無論依附在底片、紙張、還是螢幕,怎麼看都像某種切片。

只是想說,如果用一天的時間拍攝一張照片,那一天不就變

成了一瞬間。

Drawing my face with a flashlight for a couple minutes, then shooting with B shutter in the darkroom.

The idea of a “blurred face ” appeals to me deeply. I tried to grab or sketch my face through the light and images in the passage of time and motion, but it was such a mission impossible.

 

(ps.No.1底片於放相後即遺失)

幾分鐘的時間內,用手電筒畫自己的臉,在暗室中以B快門拍攝。

某種「面目模糊」的意像深深吸引著我,在運動和時間的流逝中,企圖透過光和影像,描繪、捕捉住自己的臉孔,卻不可能。

在航空科學中,空氣動力學(Aerodynamics)是運算飛機與氣流間各種量力關係,如何能在空中飛行的物理定律。每次創作都像是一場身體實驗的編舞家林文中,以此科學方法為靈感,要將舞蹈動作與身體意象的結構過程,變成一種飛行的方式。 透過重組空間與時間的立體向度,微觀肌肉運動的細節,研發動作與動力如何離開地面,形成升空、暫留、恆速、滑翔、翻轉、漂浮等各種身體樣態。同時將舞蹈類比人類對抗引力的欲望,在物理與心理空間中折返,引發身體動力學的無限詩意與想像。

Off The Map 身體輿圖 set design

Wu Chi-Tsung was invited to “World Stage Design 2013”, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff, UK (2013) for the set design work of “Off the map.”

Profoundly poetic and of hypnotic beauty, the performance Off the Map creates a space for contemplation in which viewers are invited to get away from their sense of time and reality for a while and get in touch with their inner self.

In a setting reminiscent of the immaterial light of dawn and every so often changing into sky, clouds, sea, or night, the female body is moving slowly, precisely and steadily. There is a constant whisper mapping perhaps her inner monologue – probably what motivates her body to go “off the map”. Her body: embodying all the history of Far-Eastern physicality and its characteristic profound spirituality; yet, a contemporary body in a mediated environment. A body vulnerable yet vigorous, incorporating all the fragility of the human in a fluid, ever-changing post-industrial world: a metaphor for the human condition today.

蘇文琪透過此次演出,反省所謂新媒體的意義,希望保有創作精神,但降低技術性。也因此,雖然仍舊「跨界」,依然「多媒體」,《身體輿圖》卻呈現了新媒體的「低限主義」。

擅長視覺裝置的吳季璁,以全白屏幕和成本不高的汽車隔熱紙打造簡單而充滿流動感、意象驚人的舞台,「文琪的肢體充滿臨界狀態、內在張力飽滿,所以我創造一個中性、開放的空間,讓舞台既有無限延伸,又保有壓迫感。」
