Venue: National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art

Time in Between features urban views from both Taipei and Paris. It documents a compressed 24 hours in these two places with 24 locations and 24 Taiwanese people strolling in Paris. By seamlessly overlaying urban images from the two cities at different hours of the day, 24 hours in the existence of a strange composite zone emerges. The present in the past, the present in the present and the present in the future coexist in temporal simultaneity.

The very moment I have just experienced in Taipei and Paris has gone, vanished and yet the feeling of the past and the future arc at the same time retained within the present. Today’s Taipei is as if yesterday’s Paris, our bodily perception straddles two cities and falls into the unfolding time in between. Carrying our past experience and present perceptions, we head for the future- connecting one point to the next, and on to the next one.

Every hour the video documents 24 Taiwanese people wandering slowly around 24 popular Paris attractions. Their slow movements create a sharp contrast with those of the fast-moving tourists, reflecting the subtle interplay of alienation and belonging one experiences in a foreign land. It depicts their careful consideration regarding their every step and the next steps they will take. They seem to make up some kind of community, but the connections between them seem blurred. This careful deliberation over how to proceed in a changing landscape extends beyond the international status at the current time.


2014數位藝術創作案「陳韻如:時光間」

日期:2014/03/08 – 2014/05/25
地點:國立台灣美術館

〈時光間〉是2014數位藝術創作案徵件獲選的作品,藝術家陳韻如收集台北與巴黎兩個城市的風景,透過影像重疊的手法,以錄像裝置呈現出兩種不同時空的交錯。在360度的圓形展間中,藝術家將其切分為12格影像,如同時鐘形式般,雖代表時間連續地行進,然而每1格影像實際上皆展現了台北與巴黎兩地一日24小時的濃縮堆疊。藝術家將兩種不同的時空平行展現於觀眾眼前,試圖打破既定的物理時間,使觀者轉而以另一種思維觀看時間的存在。

台北與巴黎的24個場景於作品影像中同時出現與消逝,且穿插了24位緩慢行走於巴黎的台灣人。藝術家藉快速流轉的人潮,一種群眾與個人、快與慢的對比方式,讓觀眾在體驗不同時空的並行之外,也同時聚焦於24位主角處在異地的內在細膩感受:此刻我所在的,是純粹於巴黎的當下時空,抑或伴隨著過往經驗所累積的複雜感受?〈時光間〉將給予觀眾另一種不同的感知方式。
