凹凸史:劉玗個展

展期:2018.07.28-09.23
開幕:2018.07.28 15:00

劉玗的創作主要關注空間屬性的變化和隱匿在社會結構下的族群,透過抽絲剝繭般的層層敘事,牽起時代篇章和市井人物之間令人意想不到的連結。

這幾年在海外駐村和在地研究的累積下,劉玗交織出以金礦為主題的創作計畫。礦業驅使人的移動,採礦人口的聚集大幅改變地景,而礦脈採盡之後迅速凋零的村落,在美國成為一系列帶狀的鬼鎮,在台灣則因人口密度的差異,部分轉型為觀光景點,泰半則回歸自然,融入亞熱帶的地景。「凹凸史」將展出劉玗從2016年底開始著手進行的創作計劃,內容包括了在美國西岸的駐村研究,以及在台灣金瓜石九份地區數次訪調,並延續已發表之作品「名字不為人所知的」,以「人物、礦物、等價物」為關鍵字,製作一系列全新錄像裝置作品。


History of the Concave and the Convex
LIU Yu Solo Exhibition
2018.07.28-09.23

Opening Reception: 2018.07.28 15:00

LIU Yu’s practices focus primarily on the variance of space attribute and the groups hidden underneath the social structure. As levels of narratives unveiled, an unexpected bonds between the stories of times and the common folks are thus revealed.

Cumulating via oversea residency projects and local researches these years, LIU Yu has woven out a creative project themed with gold mine. Mining industry moves people, gathers mining population, and alters landscapes drastically. Nevertheless, villages are desolated as soon as the mines depleted, lining up strings of ghost towns on the U.S soil. In Taiwan, thanks to the difference in population density, some are transformed into tourist attractions, while the others return to the Nature, blending themselves into the subtropical landscape. History of the Concave and the Convex exhibits LIU’s creative project that started in the end of 2016, including the residency research in the West Coast of the United States as well as the several visits to the regions of Jinguashi and Jiufen in Taiwan. Also, following the debuted work, Nameless, with “figure, mineral, and equivalent” as keywords, a series of video installation novel to the eyes was born.
