【當代傳奇-2015 MOCA國際錄像藝術節】為台北當代藝術館戶外電視牆2015年「當代影像聚場」的第四檔展覽,由德、法策展人馬丁休斯與黑莉葛奈共同策畫,邀請來自阿富汗、阿爾及利亞、法國、台灣、中國、韓國、越南等19國共25位藝術家,一同呈現精彩的錄像作品。

Fairy Tales—2015 MOCA International Video Art Festival is the fourth exhibition of MOCA Video in 2015, an outdoor LED wall on the plaza of MOCA, Taipei. It is co-curated by Martin Schulze and Haily Grenet and displays outstanding video works of 25 artists from 19 countries, including Afghanistan, Algeria, France, Taiwan, China, Korea and Vietnam.

「傳奇故事」源於古老的口述傳統,藉由其中的隱喻及內涵,反映人類行為與處世態度,進而成為各國間文化交流及知識傳遞的媒介,也是建立各國文化主體性的重要工具。11世紀漢朝中國所開拓的敦煌絲路,使得東、西方在經濟與文化上不斷地交互影響,也在歐、亞文明發展歷程中扮演重要的角色。如今面對全球化的時代,東西交流已然成為不可避免的趨勢,但文化主體性也逐漸模糊,置身多元化的「當代」環境,人們可以交流分享的傳奇故事也隨之演變。

 “Fairy tales” originated from ancient oral tradition; they reflected human behaviors and how people conduct themselves in society through metaphors and meanings of the stories. Gradually, they became a medium of cultural exchange and knowledge communication as well as an important instrument of constructing the cultural subjectivity of each nation. The Silk Road, expanded by the Han Dynasty in the 1st century BC, enabled the economic and cultural mutual-influences between the West and the East, and played a crucial role in the progress and development of the civilizations in Europe and Asia. Today, the exchange between the West and the East has become an irreversible trend in the era of globalization while the cultural subjectivity is becoming undetermined. Being in a diverse, “contemporary” environment, the fairy tales that people get to share and exchange have also evolved.

【當代傳奇-2015 MOCA國際錄像藝術節】企圖藉由策展,探討全球化衍伸出來的各種當代議題,如:1. 經濟強權宰制下的勞工剝削,以及金錢至上的幻象與虛無;2. 後現代社會的普遍無力感,和精神價值的再探索;3. 對生活空間、精神象徵、文明進程的解構與再建構;4. 戰爭與暴力衝突所造成的社會不安,與人際的歧視、誤解;5. 媒體對大眾思想言論的操控,以及奇觀社會的吹捧塑造。

Through curatorial efforts, Fairy Tales—2015 MOCA International Video Art Festival explores various contemporary issues stemmed from globalization: 1. Exploitation of laborers under the domination of economic powers, and the illusion and emptiness brought about by worshipping money. 2. A general sense of helplessness observed in post-modern societies, and a revisit to the spiritual value. 3. Deconstruction and re-construction of living space, spiritual symbols and the progress of civilization. 4. Social instability caused by war and violent confrontations as well as the discrimination and misunderstanding among people. 5. Mass media’s manipulation of the public mind and speech, and the sycophancy and fabrications in spectacle societies.

本展透不同國籍的藝術家,以多元的視角與論點,切入當代議題的核心,台北當代藝術館也將於4/25的廣場活動,邀請台灣年輕影像創作者與民眾分享作品,相互交流,加入創造現世的「當代傳奇」。

Through the multiple perspectives and arguments of artists from different countries, the exhibition examines the core contemporary issues. Joining the creation of the “contemporary fairy tales” today, MOCA, Taipei also invites young video artists in Taiwan to share their works and exchange ideas with the public in the events on MOCA Plaza on April 25th.
