A Land of Happiness-Treasure Hill Light Festival

A Land of Happiness-Treasure Hill Light Festival

Date: 2019/03/30 – 2019/05/05
Venue: Treasure Hill Light Festival

From March 30 to May 5, the 2019 Treasure Hill Light Festival is featuring the work of Taiwan and overseas artists whose creations use the medium of light.

The Treasure Hill Artist Village (THAV) has held a large-scale exhibition in early spring since 2012, said Catherine Lee (李曉雯), Artistic Director of Taipei Artist Village (TAV) on Treasure Hill.

At first, artists used the medium of contemporary art for the Lantern Festival. From 2017, the organizers started to focus on the medium of light and named the event “Light Festival.”

“A Land of Happiness” (野景) is the theme of this year’s Light Festival, curated by Lee I-hua (李依樺). She hopes that the festival could explore people’s expectations for future happiness through artistic creations, cultural activities, audience participation, and cooperation between local residents and students.

Fourteen artist groups participated in this year’s event. Students from Shih Chien University, Taipei National University of the Arts, and National Taiwan University worked together for the first time. Hsiao Sheng-chien (蕭聖健), Li Cheng-liang (李承亮), and Hsu Tang-wei (許唐瑋) are Taiwan’s outstanding artists who have won Taipei Art Awards and Taishin Arts Awards. The organizers also invited well-known artists from Japan and Spain to take part in the festival.


「野景」-寶藏巖光節

展期:2019/03/30 – 2019/05/05
地點:寶藏巖國際藝術村

六〇年代的台北公館一處,人們出於切身的現實需要,自力蓋起了房舍,在經濟物質匱乏的土地上,建構了一座滿足衣食生活的村落-寶藏巖。這塊聚落最原始的景緻構築在人們對於生存幸福的期待,這片景色像是野生的,生命在這裡有機地長著,人們努力生活著。

寶藏巖這片野景的美麗,包含了生命對於更好生活最真實、純粹、本能的追求,也因著人們對於美好遺產的珍視、文化景觀的理想、土地居住與人權的關懷、公平正義的寄託,而在大片景緻裡有過一段段狂野的捍衛。

「2019寶藏巖光節」,藝術家們在這片旖旎的野景之中,創造點點亮光,蔓延出的是現代社會裡文明與野生的矛盾想像。從步入村落開始,藝術團體衍椼透過作品〈眾裡尋他千百度〉,帶著人們在聚落的巷弄裡散步,細數座落的路燈和腳前的風景。大自然的景色隨著工業文明的發展,逐漸被都市繁華所取代,在寶藏巖上光巷的房舍內,蕭聖健投影了一輪滿月,以極低科技的手法,讓作品唱出鄉野田園的蟲鳴鳥叫。對自然環境的關愛也反應在人嶼和奧爾加.蒂亞戈的作品中,他們以回收廢棄物和塑膠製造了一座流瀉著螢光瀑布的假山水,以及充氣電子裝置閃著亮光的塑膠人間樂園。半樓廣場豎立的是李承亮利用球形水塔改造的舞台廣播系統〈萬年站〉,讓人們爬上如同登陸屋頂的太空站唱歌,做一場場野生的夢,而一旁鐵皮屋頂投影的〈失訊–夜〉,是郭奕臣以作品中人們的陌生關係,回應李承亮自現代生活的疏離狀態所拓展的〈萬年站〉幻想場景,身後的機槍堡也轉化成通往宇宙秘密基地的蟲洞。人工智慧的發展讓真實的情感變得模糊,陳韻如和瀧健太郎則透過人臉追蹤和線上遊戲,演繹著當今社會遭遇的科技綁架。

寶藏巖的最深處座落著許唐瑋的〈虹光樹:果實星球〉,這兩顆星球像是原始且充滿生命力的異野空間,與聚落入口磯崎道佳搭建的巨型透明帳篷遙望著,莊知恆的〈晷跡〉則在村內的屋舍牆面留下一抹抹光痕,再現了聚落生活的痕跡。在這片斑斕的景色之中,生命交錯著命運的野蠻,本能地生長著,時代和社會的發展則時而伴隨著與情感、關懷、真實相互抵觸的狀態向前邁進,野生和文明共存著,揉合成了這塊土地的景緻意義,這座富饒的野景也承載了如今的我們對於生活光景的期待。
