ABOUT

「The Others」為一系列聚焦於亞洲、素人文學結合視覺藝術的計劃,它的構思啟蒙來自我的成長環境和台灣特殊的政治背景。The Others是一個十年計劃,開始於2017年,預計與十位亞洲的素人作家合作,希望從更廣闊、包容的視角去開拓塗鴉、繪畫藝術對抽象性、歷史性以及邊緣故事的描寫。

 

異地的構成十分複雜,不只是文化差異,還有歸屬感、價值觀、自我認同等等,它間接形成了一群「他者」在不同地方上存在著。台灣長期處於國際社會的邊緣,以及自身從小適應不良的教育環境,這些讓我注意到瑟縮在角落或縫隙裡的生命故事。這個長期計劃正在執行中,最終希望為「他者」建構一個視覺化的國度,讓更多人可以感受和走進來,也讓自己的過去有某種出口,可以連結其他人。

The Others is a 10-year art project with its focuses on Asia, amateur literature, and visual art. The initial concept had stemmed from the environment I was raised in, as well as Taiwan’s unique political backdrop. Commencing on 2017, I aimed to include 10 stories of amateur literature in the project along with my art, hoping to open up the street art and painting more inclusive practice to portray the abstract, the history, and the ambiguous.

The “others” to me does not only differs culturally, for there are much more nuances that could cause one’s alienated feelings, thus drawing the psychological boundaries that differentiate dissimilar senses of belonging and values. The childhood experiences of not being able to adapt to the environment had left memories in my body, while my country Taiwan has also long been at a marginal position among the international society. All these concerns had led me to contemplate the life stories of corner people, which marked the presence of "the others". During course of this project, I attempted to create a visualized territory for the others to walk in and to feel, and eventually to connect with the world and the people around.
