「這片草原美不美?」
「這片埤塘美不美?」
「這片溼地美不美?」
「這片水田美不美?」

展覽名稱直接引用翻譯繪本書名《你們說,這片草原美不美?》,延續2018年「陳明福」、2019年「牆隔神農」與2022年「百年不時」等個展主題後,順著地方水系流域,將視角拉離開故鄉位址,關注現代化下的高鐵建設、城市發展之於水圳、橋墩與農產消長下的風景變遷。

《你們說,這片草原美不美?》繪本作者為奧地利作家Wolf Harranth(1941-2021),原著德文原文為《Da ist eine wunderschöne Wiese》,意指「有一片美麗的草地」於1972年初版,英文譯本《Isn't It a Beautiful Meadow?》1985年出版,中文譯本由英文漢聲出版有限公司於1992年初版。

陳漢聲回想起自己的環境啓蒙受《你們說,這片草原美不美?》繪本的影響,此次展覽將從「水」出發,呼應高雄人買水的生活習慣,以及今年於高雄近郊,發現到尚有水田在種植菱角的驚喜;陳漢聲試圖對照繪本初版年代,以及自己第一次閱讀到該繪本時,台灣當時的發展情勢,藉由展覽,轉化自己當下所見的風景心境,以此類推的同時,逐漸遞減,一一發現的同時,也一一道別。

“Isn’t It a Beautiful Meadow?”
“Isn’t It a Beautiful Pond?”
“Isn’t It a Beautiful Wetland?”
“Isn’t It a Beautiful Paddy field?”

The title of the exhibition directly quotes the title of the translated picture book Isn’t It a Beautiful Meadow? Following on from themes of his solo exhibitions such as The Last Farm Boy in 2018, After the Explosion in 2019, and From View to Landscape All At Once, this exhibition follows the watershed of local water systems. Pulling the perspective away from the hometown, this exhibition focuses on changes in the landscape, from the modernization of high-speed railway construction and urban development, to the ebb and flow of canals, bridge piers, and agricultural products.

The author of the picture book Isn't it a Beautiful Meadow? was the Austrian writer Wolf Harranth (1941-2021). The original German title was Da ist eine wunderschöne Wiese, meaning “There is a beautiful meadow”; the book was first published in 1972. The English translation, under the title, Isn't It a Beautiful Meadow? was published in 1985. The Chinese-translated version was first published in 1992 by Echo Publishing Co., Ltd.

Chen Han Sheng recalls his own environmental enlightenment having been influenced by the illustrated book, Isn't It a Beautiful Meadow? This exhibition takes water as its starting point, echoing Kaohsiung people's habit of buying water, and the surprise of discovering that there are still paddies growing water caltrops in the suburbs of Kaohsiung this year. Chen Han Sheng attempts to make a comparison of the development status in Taiwan between the time when the picture book was first published and the time he first read the book. Through this exhibition, he transforms his external and internal landscapes of the time, and how they have gradually disappeared. Noting each scene as he discovers its absence, he also says goodbye to them.
