尊彩藝術中心即將第二度舉辦「陳依純個展-進入世界系:地球防衛少年」,「世界系」是引用日本思想家東浩紀(Hiroki Azuma,1971-)對「世界系」的詮釋,「世界系」一詞在2003年開始流行使用,沒有具體的國家及社會設定,主角是你/我(男/女主角),並與世界危機和世界滅亡等巨大問題的抽象連結敘事。

陳依純善於透過錄像藝術、複合媒材及繪畫等方式傳達其個人的真實與虛幻的經驗,並嘗試與真實/現實社會對話。這次展覽中訪問許多不同國家的青少年,讓他們用自己的母語透過iPHONE手機問:「嘿!SIRI,甚麼是戰爭?」就如同在日本鬼頭莫宏(Mohiro Kitoh,1966-)的作品《地球防衛少年》中,每個少年輪流選擇決定誰進入機械體中,奮戰並犧牲自我時的內心困頓。此次展出作品中,這些曾帶著內心創傷的少年,他們講述自己內心深層的悲傷,卻也希望能夠勇敢地去面對他們面臨的艱難。而這份艱難,是模糊國家和社會界線的,我們觀看到的是一個更巨大的世界觀。但唯一不同的是這不是虛構的故事,而是真實來自不同國家的青少壯年。不同於傳統線性觀看方式,藝術家透過螢幕等載體及平面繪畫,結合影像、聲音及繪畫,以另一種互動方式傳達故事內容,將給予觀眾不同的媒介去探討真實與虛擬的關係。

Chen I-Chun Solo Exhibition-Entering Sekakei – Bokurano

Duration: 2018.09.01 Sat. – 2018.09.30 Sun.
Press Preview: 2018.08.31 Fri. 12:00pm
Opening: 2018.09.01 Sat. 3:00pm
Venue: Liang Gallery 2F
Artist: Chen I-Chun


Artist Chen I-Chun once again holds her new solo exhibition at Liang Gallery. The title of this exhibition is adapted from the phrase “sekai-kei” (lit. world-type) by the Japanese philosopher Hiroki Azuma (b. 1971). The term “sekai-kei” became popular in 2003 and there is no particular national and social setting. The protagonist is you or me (male or female), the focus of the story is on the world crisis and destruction.

Chen I-Chun is good at using video art, multi-media art, and painting in her artistic practice. In this exhibition, Chen interviewed young people from many different countries and asked them to use their mother tongue to ask via iPHONE: “Hey! SIRI, what is war?” As in Bokurano: Ours by Mohiro Kitoh (b. 1966), every youngster takes turn to decide who should enter the mecha suit to overcome inner hardships. In the artworks in this exhibition, young people who suffered emotional trauma talk about their distress and hope to be brave enough to face the difficulties they are experiencing. These hardships blur the boundaries between country and society, thus we can see a bigger world. The difference is that this is not a fictional story. Young people from different countries are telling us about the sorrows they had to bear when they were young. These narratives arise melancholy and disasters in every corner of our planet.

Different from the traditional linear viewing mode, Chen utilizes the screen as the carrier and the painting to combine the image and sound. The contents of the artworks can be viewed in interactive way, and will give the audience different media to explore the relationship between reality and virtual. 

Chen I-Chun was born in 1980 in Nantou, Taiwan. Chen is best known for her artistic practice in video art, experimental animation/video, interactive art, multi-media art, and painting. Her primary focus is on social issues and folk stories in industrious and marginalized areas, also among the lower middle class. Her video works were selected for inclusion in the Film Sector at Art Basel Hong Kong in 2018 and exhibited in the Arts Electronica Festival in Austria in 2017 and the Film Library at Art Basel Miami in 2015. Her works are in the collection of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.
