「鏘條通」 - 2017街區藝術祭

展覽介紹|

「鏘條通」是個以藝術介入社區,帶動台北市條通區域之串聯與活化的街區復興計畫,透過藝文活動於生活場域的發生,實踐藝術的社會責任。

Jodori Khiang is a community-engaged project that aims at revitalizing the Jodori District in Taipei City through art. Facilitating cultural activities in everyday living spaces is a way in which social responsibility of the arts can be practiced.

「鏘條通」的「鏘」取自酒杯碰撞的聲音,如同當今條通區域許多日式酒吧內的場景,也象徵條通街區歷經政治與社會文化變革,所發展出的各式混雜、多樣與豐富。條通街區源自日據時代,由日本政府使用條通為巷道命名,曾是日本人的高級住宅區,而後日本戰敗撤退,改由日商重返台灣投資設廠,條通地區逐漸轉型為日本風味的街區,各式商店林立,人潮川流不息,雖後因政治、經濟因素逐漸沒落,但仍為熱鬧的小型商圈,各式餐飲、娛樂甚或聲色場所林立。另外,隨著政府對藝文產業的支持與政策調整,轉化閒置空間作為藝術文化場館,如「台北當代藝術館」、「華山1914文化創意產業園區」等,在文化政策的協助下,帶動許多個人(團隊)或是私人企業以自發性方式所形成的藝術勢力,將巷弄內許多空間轉化成藝廊、文創商店、藝術展演推廣場所、獨立書店…等存在蔓延。

The word “Khiang” is derived from the sound of clinking glasses. It references the activities within the many izakaya bars in Jodori, and hearkens to the diverse cultures formed from a series of political and social transformations in the area. The Jodori District was established during the Japanese Colonization Period as a high-end residential area for the elites. Following the end of World War II and consequently the conclusion of Japanese rule in Taiwan, Jodori became a bustling shopping district housing a variety of stores catering to the remaining Japanese businesses in Taiwan. The district slowly declined, however, due to political and economic instabilities. Unique eateries, entertainment parlors, and brothels were the main industries in the area. Over the years, the government has recognized the importance of activating disused public spaces with artistic activities, conceiving sites such as Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei and Huashan 1914 Creative Park. With the support of current cultural policies, individual and business initiatives are transforming spaces hidden in city corners into galleries, creative shops, exhibition and performance spaces, and independent bookstores, etc.

台北國際藝術村是台灣首座由公部門發起辦理的藝術進駐機構,2002年臺北市文化局以閒置空間再利用的概念,將中央行政特區之北平東路7號規劃為藝術家創作與居住的空間。此區鄰近中山北路與林森北路,與條通為鄰,台北國際藝術村期待以累積的藝術資源,透過「鏘條通」連結起條通裡的生活場域。

Taipei Artist Village (TAV) is the first artist residency founded by the government in Taiwan. As an effort to revitalize vacant urban spaces, Department of Cultural Affairs of the Taipei City Government transformed the site on No. 7, Beiping East Road in the Administrative District into a work-and-living space for artists in 2002. The residency is situated against the Jodori District near Zhongshan North Road and Linsen North Road. Through Jodori Khiang, TAV intends to utilize its wealth of cultural resources to connect stretches of living spaces within and near the Jodori area.

這個計畫裡一同合作的場館、店家、公共區域和藝術家們,並沒有共同指向的藝術主題,其實這正如同條通的發展背景,在這塊經歷政治、歷史、經濟、社會、文化政策等影響而豐富多變的街區,條通的混雜與多樣是自然發展出的「鏘」精神,像是各樣酒杯、多元文化的碰撞,而作為條通區域裡少數的半公家單位,台北國際藝術村的成立和宗旨也受政策影響,以藝術作為媒介,將公務單位的閒置空間重新賦予文化任務。當面對政策或甚至政治的變革,藝術所擁有的是其自由與不朽的美學精神,人們的生活與文化也正是在時代的變遷中自然生長出其活力與樣態,許多因素改變著一塊街區的發展,在眾多的變異與難以掌握之中,藝術的產生與價值卻不會改變,這是藝術文化能撫慰人心之處,也是「鏘條通」計畫裡眾多合作者願意以藝術之名共同進行的努力。

There is no predetermined theme for collaboration amongst different shops, sites, public spaces, and artists. This openness reflects the multiplicity of the area’s cultures, shaped by various historical, economic, and social policies over the years. Jodori Khiang celebrates the diverse cultures intersecting and evolving in the area. As one of the few government founded initiatives near Jodori, TAV strives to provide disused public spaces with new cultural meaning via the arts. The spirit of freedom and timelessness inherent in art can withstand the shift of policies and politics. While transformation brought by different eras can alter ways of living as well as communities’ courses of development, the productivity and importance of art do not change over time. This sense of transcendence can soothe and inspire people, and is the incentive that draws so many Jodori Khiang collaborators together.
