創作概念:

       想像力在空氣中漫遊,扎根如草。此作以想像中的河流記憶在場域中再造風景,回應此展「空氣草」(Air Plants)主題。這是被大自然回收的地方,也是對於早期湳仔溝的回憶想像風景。

        板橋為大漢溪及新店溪交會時河流沖刷下來的沖積平原。這裡早期是沙洲、沼澤土地,是種隨時漂浮的土地狀態,於是早期住民即用浮洲及湳仔標示如此稀有且美麗的地景。而湳仔溪是唯一在城市建設的過程中未被加蓋的河流。但這一帶地勢抵窪,歷來都飽受洪水威脅。因此,早期建築物的一樓空間通常是做為防洪空間使用,是這裡非常特殊的景象。

        想像著從高空的視角俯瞰這個城市直至地底,我們看見了水紋、道路、電線、樹根。我們生活中的生境樣貌就像植物一樣充滿著生命力,那是為了生存而在空間中的線條,也是趨近自然的基因與生活的必需。

        回憶是種經驗過後的迴響。我將湳仔溝的沙泥塗抹於壁面上,想像洪水過後的空間景像,樹根如水般流竄在這空間裏頭,它盤根錯節的樣子猶如我們居住的空間,也像是水的紋理,又恍如生活巷弄裡頭凌亂又相互纏繞的電線。此外,樓上滿佈的物件是過往的生活記憶,在風扇的吹拂與燈光的照射下,粼粼波光映射在壁面上創造出另一番水災過後的奇異風景。這是個對於過往風景那無以回復的鄉愁,以水的意象串連著該地特殊的地景故事,在人與自然之間創造出一個彼此平衡共生的回收風景。

Imagination roams in the air and takes root like grass. This work reproduces a scenery based on Kuei-ChihLee’s memory of a river and echoes the theme of “air plants” emphasized in this exhibition. This recycled scenery is also based on his memory of the Nanzai Ditch in the early days.
Lee smeared mud obtained from the Nanzai Ditch on a wall inside a room to create a view after a flood. Tree roots, like water, occupy this room and those that are intertwined mirror the living space and resemble watermarks and messy and intertwined wires in the alleys. On the upper floors, rooms full of objects reflect previous lifestyles. Images of spinning fans and illuminating lights are visibly projected onto a wall, producing a strange scenery following the flood. This work reveals Lee’s strong sense of nostalgia for past scenery that has been destroyed and uses the image of water to connect the city’s special landscape, creating a balanced and symbiotic recycled scenery between man and nature.
