▍展覽論述及作品介紹
「靈」指存在於萬物中的靈魂,「山」是現代社會中人對於自然的投射,回朔現代化之前人們於山域活動的精神性,在行走及重返舊路尋找土地公的過程,重新將「自然」與「宗教」作為思考的主體。以長時間在台灣山區做的土地信仰採集,轉化成為一系列藝術計劃的基底。從當代的角度去切入人與土地之間的關係,探究人如何去思考靈魂並將其具象化的過程。試圖將山域作為一種思想的媒介,土地作為一個情感的指涉對象,將萬物都視為能夠感知以及經驗的主體,以神靈與自然之觀點,回返至人類環境中的世界觀。
本展覽以〈土地神〉與〈屢豐〉兩個以土地公為主的創作相互複寫而成,〈土地神〉聚焦於台灣的土地信仰,將土地公作為敘事的主體,以虛構文本的敘事及影像的再製,假擬一個信仰缺失的時空背景,透過「找神」的事件去試圖尋找信仰的痕跡,並探問當時的時空環境與心理狀態,透過地誌學考察配合個人影像語言進行文本闡述;〈屢豐〉是一座蓋在人工島上的廟宇,在遵守土地公的旨意之下,形成了一個存在於現實中的虛幻地景,錄像藉由一位信眾的夢境,以老鷹、島與土地公的交錯敘事,利用電腦軟體中使用3D建造模型的手法,比擬宗教中將信仰具象化的過程,將不同時代的精神性以虛構的方式嫁接,藉此反映社會中如何將自然資本轉化,並回應台灣作為一個「島」的意識。

The Spirit (靈) refers to the soul that exists in all things. Mountain (山) is the projection of nature in modern society. Tracing back the spirituality of people's activities in mountainous areas before modernization, the process of walking and returning to the old paths in search of the land gods, "nature" and "religion" are reintroduced as the main subjects of reflection. The long-time collection of land beliefs in the mountains of Taiwan is transformed into the basis of a series of art projects. The relationship between man and the land is approached from a contemporary perspective, exploring how man contemplates and visualizes the soul. The attempt is to use the mountains as a medium of thought and the land as an emotional object of reference, to treat everything as a subject that can be perceived and experienced, and to return to the worldview of the human environment from the viewpoint of the spirits and nature.

The exhibition is based on two works of Land Gods (土地神) and Lyu-Feng Temple (屢豐), which are based on the land gods. Focusing on the land beliefs in Taiwan, The work "The Land Gods" takes Taiwanese land Gods as the main subject of the narrative, using a fictional narrative and the reproduction of images to create a spatial and temporal context of the lack of beliefs. Through the event of looking for God, I try to find traces of faith and inquire into the spatial and temporal environment and psychological state of the time, and interpret the text through geophysical investigation and personal visual language. The video Lyu-Feng Temple is based on the dream of a believer, the intertwined narrative of the eagle, the island, and the land Gods. Using 3D models in computer software to simulate the process of visualizing faith in religion, and the fictional grafting of spirituality from different eras. In this way, it reflects how society transforms natural capital and responds to the sense of Taiwan as an island.
