策展手記 #01

文|鄭慧華 2012. 01 饒加恩的展覽〈REM Sleep〉是「重見 / 建社會」(Re-envisioning Society)策劃展的第一檔展出,這個主題性聯展將以

十次個展的方式,展出十組藝術家。策展目的在於提出並反思當代生活特質、個體或集體生活經驗與其轉變,來重構我們 身處當代社會中的「視野」──特別是當下,我們處於資本主義的強勢全球權力分配下高度景觀化社會(Society of the Spectacle)中,在由無盡交錯、流動的異質現代性所構成的共時性社會空間中,我們該如何以具批判力的眼光去發覺在 景觀的遮蔽之下、既複雜又矛盾的現代性之中,人與人、人與地方、地方與地方的真正關係?

我們面對鄉土、傳統與各式現代文明發展的不斷相互沖積和異化過程,每個個體與群體的生命價值(或者對生活方式的「認

同」)每每在不斷地建立與失去之間徘徊,我們該如何「看見」歷史軌跡內在裡隱而不顯的種種「驅力」,和其中各個面 向所帶來的生存挑戰,反之,人在當代社會的生存,如何與既定的社會系統產生各種協商,人的需求、慾望又如何因而產 生了諸多錯落與磨擦…,而在這之中,人在資本權力構築的社會裡還能——追求怎麼樣的生命存在價值?

這個系列展將對我們當下所認同、所抗爭或默許的社會意識、人與人不斷被形塑(或被框架、操控)的關係予以重新反省,

並進一步以藝術(創作)的取徑來自我提問:如果我們能夠對自己所生存的社會賦予主體的能動性,我們能如何去「想像」 出符合我們所期驥的未來?是否還有可能去產生形塑不同的社會關係的動力?

「重見 / 建」所意味的,是重新看見那被遮蔽的真實關係,以及基於此去「想像」(或也可以說「賦予『視野』、『觀』 (vision)」)並實踐出可能正在成形的未來。在此之中,異質的「地方生活經驗」是這個策展所依據的基礎,相對於諸 多既有的文化論述的制高點,我們將從具體的「身體 / 生命經驗」出發,從已被化約的總體描述和論點中再去找到一份各

自的對應關係、一份可能的認同和建立一種觀看和認知方式,以此和我們過於習以為常的書寫、言說、歷史論述去做出映 照,從中產生出屬於個體、來自諸眾意志的決斷力。

饒加恩的〈REM Sleep〉是從 2011 年四月份在立方計劃空間所做的〈Thaïndophiliviet〉計劃延續發展而來,關注東南亞 勞工(泰國、菲律賓、印尼和越南)在台灣的生存境遇和經驗。上一個計劃〈Thaïndophiliviet〉從饒加恩慣常的思考的「語

言」、「文化符號」切入,以語言課程(他的作品問題意識,是從社會性的角度來察覺一個地方的人們為什麼要學泰語和 越南語?反之亦然,為什麼要學英語、中文?)帶出對於人們對於學習異國語言的慾望與需求背後,所可能隱含的實際經

濟與政治權力關係與社會性因素,又以這四個國家的自製產業影片及好萊塢刻板印象中的越南、泰國影片等符號元素來形 成對所謂「認識他者」的社會觀察和反省。〈REM Sleep〉推進一步,聚焦於東南亞外籍工作者在台灣的生活,並以紀錄

片方式記錄他們在台灣居留期間所做的「夢」。在此,「移工」不只是被視為一個文化中的集體對象,而拉近到每一個人

的生存差異與周遭際遇──私密的際遇。因此在創作自述中,饒加恩寫道:「…試著從夢境探討在全球經濟體系下,個體

因著經濟因素移動時,環境對他們的感染和影響。另一方面,藉由這個似乎不具法律證據性的角度,對所處的社會提出反 思的可能。」

在作品中,一開始觀眾如同像聽故事一樣聽著移工們睡覺時做的夢,而每一個「夢」總是有貫穿於現實與非現實(意識與

潛意識)的力量去「折射」出他們的狀態。無論如何,夢境總是在某總程度上聯繫到了他 / 她們的所思、所見與內在的慾 望,而饒加恩正是以「夢」的獨特性、不容懷疑的完整性來凸顯每一個主體。

饒加恩並不將「他 / 她(們)」僅視為對象物,僅管在我們認識中,移工們在文化的認識中仍有許多符號式、對象性的社 會性解讀,但饒加恩在此之外以夢境去超越既定的方法,通過他們各自獨立的經驗去傳達,讓觀眾去產生對他們的社會存

在的感受與理解。一個傾聽者可以如何進入這些故事或重新想像這些故事,都建立在我們具體感受到這些移工的真切存在

與他們存在的時空狀態。對「移工」及其文化的瞭解,饒加恩提供了一種另類途徑,一種「異知識」(xeno-epistemics) 的可能──不從既定的框架,轉而從陌生與熟悉、私密與公開的混合中建構出另一種「認識的途徑」。

後殖民文化學者 / 策展人沙拉.馬哈拉吉(Sarat Maharaj)提出的「異知識」是一種認識他者的方法,也同時是「另一種」 認識方式(”other” ways of knowing and ways of knowing “otherness” )註,我們在饒加恩的創作方式中,見到一

位藝術創作者所能有的位置,「夢」創造出一個「異空間」(xeno-sphere),而這個「異空間」以其特殊的視角與僭越 方式重新建立了一種彼此認識的管道與關係。

REM Sleep

三頻道錄像投影 Three-channel Projection, 2012

創作自述 1994 年,台灣政府為了避免對中國投資的過度集中,且因新自由主義經濟體系的影響,啓動了《南向政策》。除了加強 對東南亞國家的投資外,也從泰國、越南、菲律賓以及印尼引進短期移工和家庭看護,以降低台灣製造業的生產成本,並 且彌補台灣社會結構失衡的狀態,而 2011 年 10 月,外籍短期移工人數突破 42 萬人。

《REM Sleep》這件作品挪用紀錄片的形式,拍攝台灣 90 年代南向政策後,由印尼、菲律賓、泰國以及越南所引進的短 期勞工,他們在台灣居留期間睡覺時的夢,一方面試著從夢境探討在全球經濟體系下,個體因著經濟因素移動時,環境對 他們的感染和影響,另一方面,藉由這個似乎不具法律證據性的角度,對全球經濟體系下的移動個體狀態,提出反思的可 能。

Artist Statement Since 1994, Taiwanese government started "Go South Policy" in order to prevent the over investment in mainland

China. In the same time, the government followed the idea of Neoliberalism and imported labors from Thailand,

Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia, in the one hand to reduce the production costs of local industrial and in the other hand to remedy the unbalance of Taiwanese sociality; in October 2011, the number of immigrant workers surpassed 420,000 people.

“REM Sleep” this work distills via a documentary format the dreams of Indonesian, Filipino, Thai and Vietnamese

laborers who have come to Taiwan as short-term migrant workers after Taiwanese government policy shifted in the

90s. Documentation of these dreams in a foreign land serve on one hand as an exploration of the range of effects

of a change of environment on the individual, as a result of shifting global economic forces. On the other hand, as documents with no legal ramifications whatsoever, they also avail to the global economic system inhabited by these nomadic individuals a possible means of introspection.

mà máu phun ra khắp nhà mình hoảng 血卻噴了整個房間,我聽了好害怕 but the blood sputtered all over the room instead, I was really frightened to hear about it cậu em mình gọi điện 後來我弟弟打電話給我 when my little brother told me afterwards

關於饒加恩 饒加恩(b.1976)在台灣就讀大學,隨後赴巴黎、倫敦深造與創作。在不同社會、文化及教育的養 成背景下,造就他對異文化、不同語言、不同族群乃至於身份認同上獨特且敏銳的觀察力。他將自 己的身體感和生活經驗,以精練、多元的創作方式表達出來,敏銳又兼具幽默感。 2007 年的單頻道錄影作品〈父語〉中,已展現他以「語言」為媒介,轉譯出其關注文化、族群和身 份認同等相關性議題。2009 年〈你是匹我永不想騎的馬〉是一件美學上、觀念上都趨向更成熟的作 品,他將對「語言」─意義的形成─的興趣擴展至對文化形象、圖騰、符號的演繹,並以此交互投 射出他對歷史、文化與社會的反思。 2010 於台北雙年展展出〈宣言〉,則是邀請不同身份的人讀 出藝術家「創作自述」的方式,碰觸歷史建構與話語、書寫的政治性問題。2011 年於立方計劃空間 展出的〈Thaïndophiliviet〉同樣從「語言」出發和探討,擴展其對歷史與文化,乃至於當代社會中 的社會經濟與階級組成之多層次探討。 www.chiaenjao.co.uk

Jao accomplished his BA degree in Taiwan, after graduation, he went to Paris and London to continue his studies and art practice. From diverse cultural and educational backgrounds, he has developed a unique perception on the question and relationship between identity, different languages, societies and ethnic groups. He is able to transform his sense and experiences into manifold forms of expression, which are not only humorous but also precise in expressing his observation and reflexivity.

In his 2007 single channel video Father’s Tongue, he already demonstrated using"language"as a medium to address the issues of identity between cultures, ethnic and social groups. In 2009, his solo exhibition You Are The Horse That I Would Never Ride demonstrated meticulous interventions on both aesthetic and conceptual aspects. He expanded his interest from language, ways of constructing meaning, into the evolution of cultural images, totems and symbols. From this viewpoint, he projected his reflection of Taiwanese history, culture and society. In 2010, for the piece Statement shown in the Taipei Biennial, he invited the general public to perform/read out artist statements written by artists from different generations. Through this juxtaposition, he tried to deal with the political question between speech, writing and construction of history. Presented in 2011, his Thaïndophiliviet project, based on issues and discussions related to language learning sphere in Taiwan, especially languages from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippine, the four main countries that Taiwan searches for labor force, further by connecting to economic and political aspects, it reveals multilayered inspections on contemporary Taiwan society’s social economy and hierarchical system.
