文化斡旋 Negotiating Cultures

2021/04/17 - 2021/05/09

《文化斡旋》是一檔聚集了新加坡和台灣藝術家參與的聯展。
我們正處在生活中有許多不同的文化交匯的時代。資訊、人和商品的高度流動性無可避免地使得人們能夠在不同的環境中接觸其他文化。
本展覽將探討我們自己與外來文化的獨特關係,並試圖探索「文化互動」的概念。
文化的內涵意義塑造了我們的個人身份、價值觀及信念。在當代社會中,我們經常與陌生文化接觸,並與不同背景的人互動。在資訊因網路而全球化的時代,文化的輸入與輸出不再以地區為中心,而是分裂為更細小的個人經驗,遍佈於你我的生活之中,呈現一種拼貼的狀態。我們如何應對這種已深深融入我們生活中的並置狀態,以及它對我們個人和整個社會有何影響?
四位台灣和新加坡藝術家將從他們各自在國內的社會脈絡或長期身處在國外的個人化和個性化體驗與觀察為參考點,並透過各種媒材及形式的作品來回應展覽的主題。
《文化斡旋》旨在探討來自不同文化的個體之間各種可能的對話。

參展藝術家簡介:

趙書榕(1982年生於臺北)
長期以新媒體、跨域複合媒體當代藝術等為主要創作,環繞在自我私領域的 「記憶漫遊」,以及公領域的「全球化」課題。作品活躍於國內外各大展覽 , 唯一作品三度獲選收錄法德電視台的臺灣藝術家(« 2014, 2013, 2011 ARTE Video Night »),於 ARTE 電視台、法國土魯茲國家電影資料館、巴黎數位文 化媒體藝術中心和巴黎東京宮播出。 shujung.tumblr.com

李奎壁(1991年生於臺南)
她的作品關注於跨國移動與勞動經驗,透過改造勞動過程中所產生的物件與介入勞動的過程,轉變商品原所屬的內涵,提出她對於今日物質世界的批判觀點。
她善於運用來自於勞動現場的物件,透過仿造、再製與重新編撰,讓觀眾在作品展示現場落入精心策畫的陷阱當中,成為一名演員,與被展示的對象。同時,透過隱藏在物件中的歷史線索,她試圖將對於生產系統的關心擴延到族群的身分認同上。曾獲得北美獎優選(2020)與入圍高美獎(2021)。 www.likueipi.com

莊志偉(1995年生於新加坡)
莊志偉是一位專注於情感領域延伸的雕塑家。他的創作探討社會結構之中圍繞於人類情感及其產生的附帶影響。從力量到悲傷,再到近期的親密關係,莊志偉以唯物主義為導向來透過物件去探索我們的情感連結。
他的創作通常具有透過微妙且微小的介入來顛覆對物件的傳統理解能力。他的作品顯得毫無關聯和隨意,但其中包含了徹底聆聽和處理物件材質的過程。 danielchongart.com

葉蘊芯(1998年生於新加坡)
葉蘊芯是位介于構思者和後讀者之间的重新包装者;她從不同的來源中抽取資訊,以建立⼀個貌似合理理的世界。她的作品探索真誠投資的潛⼒,例如⼈類狀態中的另類親情關係和糾纏(以及所有的尷尬!)。
近期展覽包括《Immaterial Bodies》(objectifs)、《》 (NTU CCA)、「新加坡藝術週」的《開放工作坊》(Supernormal, 2020)、《公寓2079》(於網路發表,2020)及《二手菸》(LUX’s OUT of TOUCH by HERVISIONS,2020) deniseyapyx.com

Negotiating Cultures is a group exhibition featuring works by artists from Singapore and Taiwan.

We are living in an age where a vast range of cultures cross paths. The high mobility of information, people and commodities inevitably allow us to come into contact with other cultures in a myriad of environments.

This exhibition dwells into the investigation of our unique relationship with ourselves vis-à-vis foreign cultures as we seek to explore the idea of ‘cultural interaction’.
The connotation of culture shapes our individual identity, values, and beliefs. In a contemporary society, we are constantly exposed to unfamiliar cultures and interacting with people of different backgrounds.

In an era where information is increasingly globalised, the concept of importing and exporting of cultures is no longer limited to insular regions. These anecdotal experiences are now ubiquitous to our lives and present a state of collocation.

How do we negotiate such juxtapositions that have profoundly become a part of our lives?
How does it influence us on a personal level, as well as society at large?

Four participating artists from Singapore and Taiwan will present works in various forms to respond to the theme of the exhibition with references to their respective personal and personalised experiences and observations; be it in the localised contexts of their home cities or of being abroad over a long period time.

Negotiating Cultures aims to examine the various possible dialogues between individuals coming from different cultures.

Artists’ Biography:

Chao Shu-Jung
(B.1982, Taipei)

Shu-Jung Chao has been engaged in new media, transdisciplinary multimedia, and contemporary art with focusing both on the aspects of consciousness such as ‘’ voyages in memories’’ and the issues of ‘globalization’ in public sphere. Her works can be found in various prestigious video art festivals around the world and she is the only Taiwanese artist whose work had been thrice selected to be aired on ARTE Video Night (2014, 2013, 2011). Following the ARTE airing, Chao went on to exhibit her works at the Cinémathèque de Toulouse in France, the La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris, and the Palais de Tokyo, also in Paris. shujung.tumblr.com/ vimeo.com/user4470927/videos

Li Kuei-Pi
(B.1991, Tainan)

Li’s work engages in transnational mobility and labor experience, in which she converts objects created from labor and intervenes in the labor process, transforming the meaning of the products to convey her critical viewpoints about the modern material world.
Li specializes in utilizing objects from the site of labor work before employing means of imitation, reproduction and remaking to entrap the audience in her elaborately conceived works, in which the audience become performers as well as part of the exhibited works. Meanwhile, she uses historical clues embedded in the objects to include issues related to the identity of different communities in her discussion about production systems. She received an honorable mention in the 2020 Taipei Art Awards and is a finalist in the 2021 Kaohsiung Award. www.likueipi.com/

Daniel Chong
(B.1995, Singapore)

Daniel Chong is a sculptor working in the expanded field of affect. His practice delves into social constructs around human emotions and the resulting by-product affects. From strength to grief and recently, intimacy, Chong engages with materialism as a means to unearth our emotive connections through objects.
His practice is often characterised with the ability to upend traditional understandings of objects through subtle and often minute interventions. His works seem irreverent and casual but in it lies a thorough process of listening and working an object through its materiality.

Denise Yap
(B.1998, Singapore)

Denise Yap is a re-packager, pre-writer and post-reader who draws from different sources of information to build new, plausible worlds. Their work explores the potential of sincere, emotional investments in alternative forms of kinship and all the entanglements (and embarrassments) of the human condition.
Yap’s recent local exhibitions include Immaterial Bodies at Objectifs, at NTU CCA and The Open Workshop at Supernormal as part of Singapore Art Week (all 2020). They also presented Apartment 2079 online (via their website) and Second Hand Smoke as part of LUX’s OUT of TOUCH by HERVISIONS (both also 2020). deniseyapyx.com
