「渠道、膠卷與機器」魏柏任個展

Channel film and the machine

關於展覽|

​依稀記得,曾有一卷家庭錄影帶,記錄我生命中一些重要的時刻。直到北上一人生活,想起了那些令人懷念的時候。原來,那卷錄影帶被擱置在當初拍攝的錄影機中。六七年過去了,那些人、事件及地方又重新地被顯影出來。

位處地下室的展場空間,須經由向下延伸的單一通道方能進入,低矮的天花板、橫樑、裸露的管線、交錯的結構或是安置其中的空調系統,帶有某種幽閉的機器性格。與此呼應的是,以一個拍攝者的目光觀看鋼筋鐵皮搭建而成的巨大廠房,其中堆置各類樣式繁多的傢俱、餐飲設備和金屬製品,那是母親日復一日工作的地方。

本次展覽將視線停留於特定物件―關於舊式錄放影機與膠卷錄影帶的詮釋。其中,揉雜展場空間的想像以及生命經驗場景的重新觀看,聚焦在「特定物件之於個人的生命意義」上。

About Exhibition|

I vaguely remember that there used to be a family video tape that recorded some of the significant moments in my life. Those yearning memories came back to me when I moved up north. I realized the tape was left inside of the recorder afterward. Those people, incidents and places that once existed were exposed again after the passing six to seven years.

Located in a basement where audiences can only enter through a downward one-way entrance, its low ceiling, crossbeam, exposed pipelines, staggered structures, and the air conditioning system all bring a clandestine and mechanic character to the exhibition space. The sight took place from a photographer’s eyes looking toward a gigantic tin factory built by reinforcement, filled with piled up furniture, catering equipment and metal products, indicating the environment where the mother of the photographer worked. The two scenes above corresponded with one another.

This exhibition creates a way for audiences to rest sights on specific objects, and bring them to further read in the interpretation of old tape recorder and film tapes. It blends the imagination of exhibition space with the revisit of life scene, and targets on the discussion of the meaning of specific objects toward one’s life experience.
