「這個世紀是一個流動性劇烈擴張的世紀,表現在旅遊、遷移勞動力、移民和城市化蔓延等方面。越來越多人開始棲身於交通工具、機動車和飛機上……離開家並不意味著可以發現新鮮的東西,體驗另一個時間或空間。生疏的事物往往邂逅於比鄰的街區,而熟悉的東西則出現在地球盡頭。」– James Clifford

「無界的島」是洪韵婷從近幾年頻繁的國際移動中得到的發想。我們都清楚勞動力的遷徙加速了人類的流動,旅行成了習以為常的生活,為我們快速的生產出一個自己國家以外的世界,那個趨向同一種喜好、相同語言的文化殖民世界,但這種離開熟悉日常、必須與陌生人接觸的失衡狀態,真切地反映在這個現實。如此劇烈擴張的時代,語言、體制、功能等都在同一個平台上流通,全球都向著同質化的方向前進,將文化差異抹平。同時,網路重新開啟我們書信往來的古老傳輸方式,但卻成了一種無距離感的、以直接又即時的書寫方式進行,那個通信過程中最獨一無二令人著迷的等待消失了。人與人之間的關係不但沒有因為全球化拉近彼此的距離,反而反映在人和空間建築的尺度上,如同義大利詩人雷歐帕爾迪的一段文字所及:「羅馬的雄偉其實是為了拉開你想找的那個人跟你之間的距離,增加你走向他的階梯數……」。

此次展出作品預計藉由旅行移動時經常使用的物件與種種儀式,來提記我們這個既變小也變大、既是全球化也是差異化的矛盾時代,也透過創作去顯現在日常生活中的各種速度,其相互交織的流動性。構築一個的幻想性的空間,一個主客、物我、心理意向與身體運動不斷變動的世界。

// Exhibition Statement //

“This century is a century of dramatic liquidity expansion, manifested in tourism, labor migration, immigration and urbanization. More and more people are starting to live on vehicles, automotive vehicles and airplanes … Leaving home doesn’t mean you can find something new and experience another time or space. Unfamiliar things tend to linger in neighborhoods, while familiar things appear at the end of the earth. ” – James Clifford

In “An Island without Boundary”, Hung Yun-Ting is inspired by the frequent international mobility in recent years. We all know that the labor migration has accelerated the flow of human beings. Travel has become a common and normal life style, and we have quickly created a world outside our own country; a cultural colonial world that tends to form the same preferences and the same language. However, this unbalanced condition that is away from everyday life and being forced to face strangers is truly reflected in this reality. In such an era of dramatic expansion, language, institutions, functions, and so on are all circulated on the same platform, and the world is moving toward to homogenization, generalizing cultural differences. At the same time, the Internet re-activated the ancient transmission method of our correspondence, but it was manipulated in a sense of writing without distance, yet direct and instant. The waiting period which could be the most fascinating part within the whole communication process disappeared. The relationship between people did not get closer due to globalization, but it was reflected on the dimensions and scale of the distance between people and architecture. As the Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi mentioned, “the greatness of Rome is actually drawing the distance away from you and the person you’re looking for, increasing the number if stairs walking toward him……”

This exhibition aims to remind us the current era of contradictory, which becomes bigger yet smaller and moving toward both globalization and alienation through objects used and rituals operated when traveling and moving. It also represents each kind of speeds and the fluidity woven by such speeds through the artistic practices; constructing a imagined space and a world of dynamic movement of subject/object, object/self and mental/physical condition.
