    台北|寶藏巖國際藝術村每年選出十多位台灣藝術家出訪,至世界各國的交流單位進行駐地創作。2020年度百里廳以「旅行文學」的角度出發,規劃了整年度的出訪藝術家聯展。循著荷馬史詩《奧德賽》,在「旅行」和「返鄉」之間的成長敘事線,讓藝術家透過展覽,提供經驗和思想的再次傳遞。藝術村的交流單位橫跨亞洲、歐洲、大洋洲等國家,本年度以地理區域劃分各檔展出,呈現藝術家因當地歷史、人文、地理等,所啟發的計畫和作品,除了進一步完成這一趟完整的駐村創作旅程外,也讓觀者在觀展的過程中,有如閱讀了一段一段的旅途日誌。

    展覽「找尋呼吸的路徑」邀請於2019年出訪韓國光州市立美術館(Gwangju Museum of Art)的魏欣姸以及同樣出訪韓國的廖烜榛和黃奕捷,則是駐村於國立現代美術館高陽藝術工作室(MMCA Residency Goyang)。魏欣姸的作品延續他在台日的計畫「與我散步」,在光州這個民主要地與不同的人相遇,從散步的路徑中以新的視角感受光州這個城市。廖烜榛和黃奕捷的計畫則是從南北韓的緊張關係中萌發,兩人於同一天出發踏上旅程,約定最終在38度線邊界的兩端相見。

    一個散步的邀約是開端,步行是實際的動作,交流是自然而然形成的結果。展間中的物件則是從每一段不算長的散步中,如同分鏡一般的互視、微笑、思考、講述、停頓,都像握著一把不算銳利的刀,從蛋糕上方緩緩切下,把某一部分的自己分割、分享。「與我散步」本身所擁有的排他性,看似是緊密的共處時光,但在提到與光州事件相關的議題時,卻總不經意的如同窗戶上蒙上一層水蒸氣般,只能看見物體的外顯的表象,卻讓人看不清實際的細節,甚至更深層的情緒波動。不過散步仍有屬於它的親密,當兩人的呼吸隨著腳步漸漸趨於相同,某些個人記憶必然從中顯影,而這些故事輾轉回到展間,就如藝術家帶著觀者走入當時的光州街景,踩著輕盈的步伐前行。

    「冷靜」是廖烜榛和黃奕捷在南韓駐村期間合作的作品,從兩人的伴侶關係和南北韓分裂的國情出發,他們各自開始了一段旅程,一路上兩個人各自蒐集、拾取甚至丟棄,試圖在旅途的終點相會。北韓總是給人一股神秘的社會主義色彩,近年來有越來越多管道進入到北韓,然而看見的、體驗的,勢必是被安排過後的狀態,就像是披上怎麼揭開都沒有盡頭的面紗一樣,終究呼吸不到空氣。而在南韓則與當時和日本的政治關係有關,戰時的恩怨和無辜犧牲,不論時間如何沖刷,終究無法好好享有「免於恐懼的自由」。透過雙頻道錄像的敘事線,兩人的步伐漸漸靠近,期待彼此在「自由之家」相遇,卻仍然在警備森嚴的停戰區中喘不過氣。

    展覽「找尋呼吸的路徑」將從7月31日至8月30日在台北國際藝術村展出藉由魏欣姸、廖烜榛和黃奕捷兩組藝術家的作品,帶領著觀眾們踩著不盡相同的步伐,且從各自的獨立的路線中,尋找一條能共同自在呼吸的路徑。

    ● Open Time/11:00-18:00

    Taipei Artist Village selects more than ten Taiwanese artists to participate in the three-month residency abroad in organizations worldwide every year. In 2020, Barry Room starts from the perspective of “Travel Literature”, organizing Artists Exchange Group Exhibition throughout the year. Following Homeric epic “The Odyssey”, artists provide retransmission of experience and thoughts in the narrative line that grows between “travel” and “back home”. The exchange organizations of artist village span across Asia, Europe, Oceania, and other countries. This year, the exhibition will be divided based on geographical areas, showing the projects and works inspired by local history, culture, geography. Besides bringing a complete end to the entire residential creative journey, the exhibition also creates multiple paragraphs of traveling journal to viewers in their process of visiting.

    In Search of the Path to Breathe invites Wei Hsinyen, who visited Gwangju Museum of Art in 2019, and Liao Xuanzhen and Huang Ichieh, who participated in the MMCA Residency Goyang. Wei’s work is an extension of Walk with Me, a project that stretches between Taiwan and Japan. Wei met different people in Gwangju, the holy land of democracy, and explores the city with a brand new perspective through the act of walking. The work of Liao and Huang is inspired by the tension-filled relationship between South and North Korea; the two set off on their journeys on the same day and made an appointment to meet at the 38th Parallel.

    The invitation to take a walk together is an initiative, walking is a physical action, and exchange and interaction is a natural result. The exhibits are like segments that are extracted from the walk, separating every mutual gaze, smile, thought, narration, and pause. Each of them becomes a blunt knife, slow slicing downward into a cake, segmenting and sharing a piece of self. The exclusivity of Walk with Me makes the project seem like intimate time together, but every time the Gwangju Uprising is mentioned, it is as if the windows are suddenly covered with a film of steam: the outer appearances of objects are visible, but the details and deeper emotional turmoil are not. However, walking still involves a certain intimacy; when the breathing and footsteps of two individuals sync, certain personal memories emerge and end up in the display space. Viewers who visit the exhibition will follow the artist into a particular time and scene of Gwangju, advancing with lighthearted steps.

    Calmness is a collaboration between Liao Xuanzhen and Huang Ichieh while the two artists participated in a residency in South Korea. Liao and Huang started with their relationship and the broken relationship between South and North Korea. The two artists embarked on separate journeys, each collect, gather, and discard trying to reunite at the end of the journey. North Korea is clouded with a veil of Socialist mysteriousness. Throughout recent years, there are more and more ways entering North Korea, but the sights and experiences are all prearranged and curated. The entire encounter resembles the uncovering of a veil but never exposing the truth, never receiving the breath of air. South Korea, on the other hand, is influenced by the past politics of Japan; the resentment towards warfare and innocent sacrifices can never be washed clean, never achieving “freedom from fear.” With the narrative of the two-channel video, the footsteps of the two artists move closer, expecting to reunite in the “Freedom House”. However, they are still limited by the guarded tension of the Demilitarized Zone.

    Exhibition In Search of the Path to Breathe will be displayed between July 31st and August 30th at Taipei Artist Village. Led by Wei Hsinyen and art group Liao Xuanzhen and Huang Ichieh, viewers will set off, each with different steps and paces, in search of a path of breath that allows collective freedom.
