國立清華大學校園公共藝術節-"世界家園"

Campus Public Art Festival of National Tsing Hua University-"Global Homes"

 

 

 

這是件國立清華大學校園公共藝術節的作品計畫。作品名為"藝術生境_水孕",以生態學的名詞進入藝術作品的命名裡頭,試圖將創作者以一種自然界物種來看待,創造一個於校園湖面上的棲地式作品,而在特定環境裡頭的現地創作即是某種生態位的進程。以此回應此校園公共藝術節的"世界家園"主題之外,藉由作品於湖面上實體與鏡像相互映射出的巨大種子形象象徵符號,牽引出水之孕生的生命循環概念。在環境裡的軀體勞動與所在生態環境的過程中,進入了那想像的時空縫隙裡頭。在這充滿故事的自然的流體上,漂浮的土地是種棲地,一個看得見卻到不了的陸地,與內置的松果開啟了關於世界家園的討論。在浪漫與現實的不斷拉扯與衝撞之中,水之孕出的是新生與想像的無盡領地,亦或是那生活裡頭無以回復的種種殘酷事實。

當我在此地創作的時候,通常聽到許多學生告訴我關於這個湖的故事。這裡以前有一個科系名為"核工系",顧名思義就是研究核能的系所。這也是台灣唯一一個研究核能科技的教育機構。然而,最大的問題是核汙染的器具要怎麼回收呢?我聽聞他們就直接丟進這個湖中,也是為什麼有些學生們不喜歡這個湖的原因。

我原本的作品計畫就是在湖面上創造一個棲地,剛好這個湖承載了許多在地的故事,而且正好創作期間正值"反核四運動"如火如荼展開的時候。許多的因緣際會造就了這件作品。更是蒙上了一層詭譎的色彩,也是創作這件作品最佳的時機。

這是一個不屬於人的棲地,看的見卻到達不了棲地…

 

This is a project of public art festival at National Tsing Hua University campus.The art works, " Ecological niche of art_Gravida" , with the ecology of the term, tried to take the creators as a natural species, then make a habitat works on the campus lake, and the existing land creation in particular environment is a niche progress procession. As a response to this campus public art festival " Global homes " , the work on the lake mirrored each entity and mapping out the image of the great symbols of seeds, draws the concept of water’s breeding and the life’s cycle.In an environment where the body of labor and the ecological environment in the process, we entered the imagination of space inside the gap . In this fluid story, the land is a kind of floating habitat, a visible but can not get on the land, the works and the pine cones inner opened the  “Global homes" discussion .In the constantly pulling and collision between romance and reality, water gravida the endless newborn land of imagination or restore all the brutal facts of no returning life.

When I created work here,  I usually hear many students tell me stories about this lake. Here used to have a department called “the Department of Nuclear Engineering", as the name suggests is the study of Department of nuclear energy. It is also the only research nuclear technology educational institutions in Taiwan. However, the biggest problem is how to recycle the stuff of nuclear pollution. I heard they were thrown into the lake directly. That’s why students don’t like this lake now.

My original plan was to create a habitat on the lake, and this lake carrying a lot of nuclear stories. Besides, at the same time, there was coincided with “anti-nuclear Fourth Movement". Many of karma created this work. It was covered with a layer of strange color, but also the best time to create it.

It is a habitat does not belong to man, we could see it, but can not reach there…
