有眼有耳的人都會知道,一個人無法隱藏任何秘密。就算他的唇齒緘默,指尖也會喋喋不休,每個毛孔都會洩漏他的秘密。 —佛洛伊德

以《微光/真實,越南The glimmer that we see/ Vietnam》為題的展覽是從越南為一出發點,並以展覽作為另一種真實的縮影,彰顯生存現實以不同的脈絡交織在我們眼前。儘管我們接受全球化快速的資訊,主流媒體表像錯覺仍有機會將我們導向忽略的生活面向,或許不曾察覺現實生活中的某些生命過程,與特定文化處境中的遭遇,但是通過聆聽那幽微而撞擊的聲響,促使我們重新理解原先被視為理所當然的秩序。

身體穿透
尤其在如今這各種社會景觀淩駕於個體生存的本質之上的時代,通過身體去產生論述,在短時間內是難以被呈現的。而形而上的精神性,往往需經某種路徑才能到達我們所感知和存在的現實世界,這個路徑以「身體」為媒介,讓身體本身更貼近「身體性的有感意識」。

而生活中的真實往往與人的意識和精神世界難以切割,在「身體感知」過程中將幽微的真實赤裸地顯現出來。然而我要說的是「身體」如何成為用於藝術生產和文化批判的某種「語彙」,這些「語彙」背後的文本脈絡,會透過我們接收到的歷史性、社會性、政治性以及其他種種因素被建構起來,而不僅僅是人的現實狀態。

縮影
展覽作為另一種真實的縮影,生存現實以不同的脈絡交織彰顯。這個展覽不採取宏大的敘事,亦非只是要將各種不同的生活現實,以個別的觀點或手法再現而已,是要透過創作者與觀察者的主觀意識共同構築出不同的文化景觀,其傳達與載負的意義與目的,正如艾德華‧薩依德(Edward W. Said)曾所揭示的,「…問題在於如何調和自己的認同和自己的文化、社會、歷史的真實情況以及其他的認同、文化、民族的現實。」這是對自我與他者、國家與國家、文化與文化之間的關係如何被形塑的探源,藉此我們得以重新找到自身的位置,甚至,再次連貫我們與周遭的人事和時空,並重新敘述個人與這個世界的關係。

然而我們也必須承認,你我都難以脫離文化價值觀的殖民,因此在試圖解析並審視社會帷幕內的複雜紋理的同時,我們也要理解其無所不在的政治關係;若要省視洞察文化的來龍去脈,我們必須從「聆聽」開始。

Exhibition Concept
Context / Lee Yipei

People who have eyes, ears will know that a person can not hide any secrets. Even if he’s silent with lips and teeth, his fingers will chatter, and every pore will reveal his secret. – Sigmund Freud

The exhibition “The glimmer that we see / Vietnam” features on the concept as the theme is from Vietnam as a starting point. Another saying is as the epitome of survival reality which demonstrates interwoven contexts in front of us. While we take the rapid information of globalization, the mainstream media still leads the illusion of life we ignored. Perhaps something we ignored is hardly noticed in real life course, in an encounter with a particular cultural context. However by listening to the faint of the sound, it prompts us to re-understand the order was taken granted.

Physical Penetration
It’s hard to discuss a theory through the body between borders in short times. The city we live is covered by massive trend of mega information, images and capitalism accumulated. Spirituality is metaphysics. It needs particular path to reach perception and reality of the existence we live, and this path is via “physical penetration”. Tracing back to the modern development, the medium means the “body”, and the connection is to make body itself closer to the “conscious sense of the body.”

And real life is often associated with human consciousness and the spiritual world is difficult to divide. It often automatically reveals the real reality through the process of “physical penetration. But what I have to say is “body” how to become our artistic production and cultural criticism for some “vocabulary.” The context behind these “vocabulary” continuously build up the surface we received through the historical, social, political, and various other factors that are constructed together, not just simply to see the state of human reality.

Miniature
Exhibition is as the epitome of survival reality which demonstrates interwoven contexts in front of us. This exhibition does not take massive narrative, nor just represent the variety of different life realities. The artwork invited is an individual views, but is deeply to build a cultural landscape under different contexts and interpretations, which convey both negative and optimistic meaning and purpose set out. As Edward W. had revealed, “… the question is how to reconcile their identity and their cultural, social, historical truth as well as other identity, culture and ethnic realities.” this is how the relationship between self and other, between countries, between cultures are shaping in the origin, whereby we are able to re-find itself in position, even, again consistent with our personnel and the surrounding space-time, and re-narrate a personal relationship with the world.

However, we must admit that those who have been isolated from reality, no matter how small or had not been concerned, it is hard to escape from the cultural values of colonization. Observations about the creators bring out the dialectical, interpretation and be interpreted, has always been two sides of this world. In trying to parse and examine complex social texture inside the curtain, we must understand their political relations omnipresent. To find out insight into cultural context, we must start to “listen.”
