森人 – 太魯閣立霧山藝駐計劃

緣起於思考是不是能透過策展實踐,讓藝術工作者進駐國家公園揭示另種人與自然關係的想像,透過藝術家與太魯閣族大同大禮部落居民交流,在國家公園內部落住民與當代藝術社群相逢、疊合與交叉實踐的過程,回應前述另種人與自然關係的提問。法國哲學家費利克斯・瓜塔里(Félix Guattari)曾在《三個生態學》(The Three Ecologies, 1990)中暗示了共生(living together)概念的重要性,連結兩個質性殊異空間展覽的兩週展期,TCAC台北當代藝術中心空間開放時間從早上四點至晚上七點,前六小時免費提供部落調飲。同步推出部落藤藝工坊(7/23,7/24,7/30,7/31)及兩天一夜同禮部落行(7/30-7/31),名額有限歡迎報名。

“Forest Human – Taroko Arts Residency Project” develops from a question about the possibility to practice contemporary curatorial research from a central base located in the National Park, with the aim to define an alternative imagination of nature in Taiwan. Perhaps the process of co-operation between artists, curator and local residents will help us to find an answer to this question. Moreover, Félix Guattari stated that we need to consider the conception of living together to deal with the issue of nature. Extending the discussion upon the issues of living together and the ecology of institutional critique, the curator wishes to combine the distinct sites of TCAC Taipei Contemporary Art Center and the Taroko National Park curatorial base, displacing the artists’ projects in this exhibition. From 16 July to end July, the opening hours of TCAC Taipei Contemporary Art Center is WED – SAT, 4am-7pm. and the aboriginal drink is free in the first six hours. At the same time, there are four workshops (7/23, 7/24, 7/30, 7/31) and a tour (7/30-31). Anyone who is interested is welcome (to travel to the curatorial base). As places are limited, please feel free for registration.
