This performance presents an in-between expression of traditional drama and dance, integrating with Cindy Ng’s multimedia ink art. The messages it delivers are of oriental humanistic spirit concerned with modern societies and the relationship of urban living to nature. This work originates in Macau through joint efforts of artists from Macau, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Beijing. Together, they explore the arts in traditional and contemporary forms, as well as the dialogues of dance, drama and ink. Images, collocated with performance space, originate a series of boundless imaginary sceneries.

《玩.風景》 澳門原創 水墨意象形體劇場

演出是介於傳統戲劇和舞蹈之間的表現形式,融 入視覺藝術家吳少英的流動水墨錄像,產生一種 隱約閃爍的東方人文情懷,關注著現代社會、自 然環境與都市人心的脈動。 作品由兩岸四地的藝術家聯手探索傳統與當代 藝術的作品;當代舞者與水墨影像的一場戲劇性 對話;一幅沒有框架的無限幻想風景;「影像時 間」與「劇場空間」豐富的元素融合;人文與科 技的感性和理性的體現……

墨的凝動 吳少英藝術 在吳少英的作品選集送達西雅圖美術館前,我從不知曉這個藝術家的存在。如同其他藝術家寄來的作品 集,吳少英的選集亦附上了作者的自述、履歷、以及一篇評論。一如往常,我略過了其他的文件,而直 接欣賞其藝術作品。在電腦上撥映她的影像藝術作品「無限 (No Limit)」。當水墨徐徐渲染開於電腦螢幕 的那一剎那,我立即迷上了其簡樸及律動之能量。 在影像裡,水墨之流動相當柔和,卻不間斷,觀賞者只能屏息以待,等待著螢幕最終渲染成黑—然而, 突如其來的水流卻如煙霧般短暫地暈開了墨,也消弭了原本的期待。隨著水緩緩流入,與墨、水相融, 沖淡墨和水,孕育出不同厚度的墨與其多層次的質感。墨與水之相融同時展現了衝突與和諧,在視覺上 與陰陽宇宙觀的互依互賴有異曲同工之妙。觀賞此影像作品後,原本例行工作程序已轉化為藝術性的經 驗,驅使我決定將在西雅圖美術館,展覽吳少英的作品。 自此之後,對於這位藝術家以及此項創作的概念來源,我已有更深入的了解。多年前,當她察覺到墨, 水流入水槽之美感,沖洗沾墨小碟子的例行工作竟轉變為一種啟發性的時刻。亟欲捕捉流動的水墨正是 啟發她影像系列作品的靈感來源,水墨被賦予自我的生命,完全不受畫筆的拘束。水墨透過脈動、與水 融合改變色調,不同形態的紋樣竟從無形的水墨中浮現出來,清晰地呈現在少英的照片及其畫紙或畫布 上之作品裡。「樹」攝影作品系列特別令人感嘆注目。相較於影像系列作品,靜默的相片散發出一種永 恆的時間感。此外,對比並非僅在黑與白之間,亦形成於光與暗之間。 在吳少英的畫布水墨作品中,光澤是一項重要的試驗因素。她發現,除了傳統的宣紙外,潑墨亦適用於 畫布上,但在此之前,此項技術許多藝術家皆視為不可能。嘗試過多種油畫布後,她找到一種畫布可以 達到最佳的效果。當被問及畫布之水墨與畫紙之水墨間的差異,她解釋:「畫布能夠呈現水墨的光澤。 當宣紙吸收了水墨,光澤隨即消失於紙的纖維中。簡而言之,畫紙所呈現之水墨為畫紙下之墨,然而, 畫布上的水墨能完全展現布上的墨。」巧妙運用畫布上的光與陰影,更能有效地呈現三度空間的形體, 這也是為何畫布水墨系列作品比畫紙水墨系列作品具象性更強的原因。有些畫布能夠呈現山脊的輪廓, 讓作品更趨近於風景畫。 從藝術歷史的觀點來看,吳少英已將水墨解放,從畫筆的附屬地位以及其長期表達字與圖像的義務中解 脫。對於某些人而言,她或許已消弭了水墨與畫筆由來已久不可分割的組合性,因為她已證明水墨可有 其自己的表達性。然而,錄像, 攝影、宣紙與畫布之作品亦顯示出跨文化的水墨表現方式,最終仍將此種 藝術基本工具之本色美感表露無遺。 姚進莊 西雅圖藝術博物館


Landscape in Taipei (1.0) Taipei National Theatre (Experimental Theatre) “Playing Landscape” was in September 2008, presented in Experimental Theatre of Taiwan National Theatre. The length of which is 50 minutes, including three main parts: (1) the interaction of ink-painting video and performers (2) the improvisation between live ink-painting, performers and other artists (3) the interaction of ink-in-life photos and performance. Two main Macau artists are Cindy Ng and Patrick Chan, with three Taiwanese performers; those are Lao Bo-sheng, Chiang Wan-Ting and Luo Yuan-de. This version mainly elaborated the appliance of technology and ink-painting in order to play crazily on stage.

Landscape in Macao (2.1)

ST. PAUL FINE ART ROOFTOP BAR (PATIO) In April 2009, Playing Landscape participated at Macau City Fringe Festival and created version 2.1 and 2.2. two versions, separately performed in patio and swimming pool. This 2.1 version was performed in a patio of a rooftop bar. The audiences were watching the performance from a top angle or through a monitor. It greatly reduced technology and directly jump into the free dialogue between man and scenery. Making use of the ink multimedia, live music and improvisational dance movements as main elements, a mature and mischievous atmosphere based on the venue is created, stacking rich and innovative scenery. Cindy’s live ink painting expanded from 10 to 30 minutes, plus with the composer Njo Kong Kei and choreographer Candy Kuok. This version delivered the theme “MEETING”, which was equal to our artists meet up for each other in this PL project.

Landscape in Macao (2.2) SWIMMING POOL

In April 2009, Playing Landscape participated at Macau City Fringe Festival and created version 2.1 and 2.2. two versions. Two days after the version 2.1, the 2.2 version was performed in a swimming pool. Making use of the ink multi-media on the real water, live music and improvisational dance movements as main elements, a mature and mischievous atmosphere based on the original scenery is created, stacking a rich and innovative scenery. A Brazilian dancer Paula Aguas joined this performance. Landscape in Beijing (3.0) 798 ART CENTRE (706 FACTORY SPACE) Playing Landscape 3.0 was presented in the most famous Chinese 798 art district in October 2009 at the Beijing 798 Art Festival and it was part of “Olá Beijing! Macao Contemporary Arts in Beijing” activities. Besides the Macau team members, we specially invited Hong Kong lighting designer Gabriel Fung to brainstorm with us at the performing site, a huge factory turned into a gallery space. Therefore, we decided to elaborate a performance in a form between exhibition and theatre. We had a new theme this time, called Rain. However, we also reached to various liquids and reveal cloud, ice, another form of liquid according to different temperatures. This was also the very first time that Cindy painted on a giant ice cube. During the live part, some audiences were allowed to join the painting; meanwhile, the Beijing dancers, Liu Bin and Song Ting Ting, choreographed through the whole performance, vividly supported the images and the sceneries, and even created spontaneously new movements every night.
