未來道人

當代修行的身心技術之探
一場太極、武術、聲音的實驗碰撞與表演

時間:2017年12月23日(六),15:00-20:30
地點:臺北市立美術館廣場
藝術家:林亭君、張欣、鄧雯馨、DINO

臺北市立美術館主辦
台北當代藝術中心策劃

來自未來的回眸一問:修行是否有一種具時代意義的實踐與樣貌?現下的身體技術與感知結構及方式是否隨著我們的科技生活有所變革,而產生新的樣貌去投射未來呢?我們要如何透過認識新的感知以應和一種當代身心靈所追求的智慧與調和?

這個提問既出於一種亙古的探求——對於心靈與人性的認識和表達,同時也出於對當下環境與個體聯繫的自我省思。科技生活高速發展之際,我們的身體是否也在新的社會環境條件下,對於自然的力量、神秘與宗教,乃至於機械文明也產生了一套不同以往的應對和想像?隨著數據整合雲端運算生產的人工智慧已經大舉入侵了我們的生活,逐漸代替我們反應與溝通,究竟媒體、機械與人體之間如何展開彼此新的觀看與修練?

《未來道人》邀請藝術家進行一場當代修行的表述,結合了太極、武術、視覺與聲響實驗的一場表演。其延伸《庇護所》之休養生息,並嘗試轉進未來的意象,將帶領觀眾參透時空疆界,以新的節奏、能量與共鳴進入新的修行運動方式和想像。

藝術家簡介

林亭君
lololol藝術組織共同創辦人,使用多媒體、錄像、文字及行為進行創作,作品關心科技對於當代生活和身體感知的影響。作品曾於Homeostasis Lab – The Wrong: 新媒體藝術雙年展、韓國濟州國立美術館、Temporal藝術節展出。近來開始將其個人的太極武術練習與藝術創作建立對話聯繫,2017年藝術計畫《3C 形意拳》於台北當代藝術中心發展呈現,並在台南聽說、台北牯嶺街小劇場等地演出。

鄧雯馨
國立台灣藝術大學新媒體藝術所畢業,身兼新媒體藝術家、數位藝術表演者、VJ、台灣獨立樂團逆風少女主唱等多重身份。2017年起,以「幽谷響」自稱,轉以個人音樂與影像實驗,音像藝術創作。
擅長的創作媒材為數位聲響、電子合成音樂、錄像及錄像裝置,嘗試運用音樂與視覺實驗詮釋科技與生命。創作關注科技與人的關係,所產生的焦慮之精神狀態,並試圖以身體,探討靈魂及數位抽象自我的呈現。2016年其導演及聲音設計作品《火炬下的囚犯》,獲第七屆數位藝術表演獎首獎。以聲音、影像結合身體之臨場藝術表現,演出及參展經歷遍佈於台灣、法國、中國、土耳其、英國、波蘭等各音樂節、藝術節及藝術博覽會。

張欣
生長於台北、紐約、北京,熱衷於物質性的實驗創作。透過聲音、空間、和表演去掌握一種對生命的物質性理解。張欣的創作啟蒙於聲樂和抽象畫的成長背景,至今她的創作仍回應多重元素的互相渲染以形成一種能量的流動性場域。目前進行中的《生命種植》計畫藉由植物和人的聲響交流去試圖理解驅動自然生命的力量。
張欣作品曾發表於台北失聲祭、台北當代藝術中心、滲透影像藝術節、JOLT 聲響藝術節、耳蝸國際實驗音樂藝術節、上海新時線媒體藝術中心、濟州美術館。她的表演「內陸」於2013獲得義大利拉古納國際藝術獎-表演提名。

DINO / 廖銘和
居於台北,製作古琴,從事噪音表演。臺灣90年代噪音第二波代表人物,曾為知名團體「夾子」樂隊成員。他的創作標識著九零年代後半期臺北噪音運動在技術上走向純類比電子,在內涵上建立獨立美學之里程碑。Dino 的電子聲響來自於極簡的模擬器材,利用線路雜音、靜電或麥克風回饋建立迴圈回路,在無音源的狀況下創造「再生音樂」於聲音的有無之間自在穿梭,其聲響表現細膩而不羈,同時作為一種冥想、一種修練,一種無礙的動與靜。
近年來Dino 參與實驗電影、小劇場現場配樂製作,曾獲臺北電影節最佳音效獎。Dino 對於英倫龐克文化及中國古典文化研究著力甚深,這些影響當可見於其創作乃至於生活實踐之中。

 

Future Tao

An experimental performance with Tai Chi, martial art and sound
Exploring contemporary technology for body and mind practice

Time: 2017.12.23, 15:00-20:30
Venue: TFAM Plaza
Artists: Xia Lin, Teng Wen-Hsin, Sheryl Cheung, DINO

Organized by Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Curated by Taipei Contemporary Art Center

A gaze from the future asks, “Is there any reference to time in spiritual and bodily practice?” How has modern technology informed and influenced our body technology and sensory structure, generating different ideas for the future? How can we exercise a new kind of body sensibility in our pursuit of wisdom and balance based on our contemporary body and mind?

Such question is not only timeless, but also deeply connects to the understanding and expression of humanity and reflection on our individual relationship with the contemporary surroundings. Have our body adapted the speedy technology and social condition to develop different correspondence and imagination for the power of nature, mysticism, religion as well as artificial intelligence? Artificial intelligence resulting from the influx of Big Data and cloud computing has greatly occupied our everyday life, taking over our reaction and communication capability, and thus new ways of perceiving and how to practice among media, machine and human should be contemplated.

Future Tao invites artists to express their contemporary life and artistic practice. A series of performance will be staged featuring Tai Chi, martial art, VJ and experimental sound, inviting you to groove with new beats and energy and develop new motion, exercise and imagination on a journey without horizon.

About the Artists

Xia Lin is the co-founder and artist of lololol.net. Lin employs multimedia, video, text and performance for her artistic practice which concerns the interaction between technology and body in our modern life. She participated in The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale by Homeostasis Lab, and showed in Jeju Nation Museum of Art and Temporal Art Festival. Lin has recently built new conversations between her Tai Chi exercise and artistic practice. She has developed and shown her latest project 3C Xing Yi Quan in Taipei Contemporary Art Centre, and performed in Ting Shuo Hear Say and Guling Street Avant-Garde Theatre this year (2017).

Teng Wen-Hsin holds a MFA in New Media Art from National Taiwan University of Arts (NTUA), and she is a new media artist, digital art performer, and the lead singer of the indie band ATW Girl. She began staging audio-visual performances as a DJ and VJ under the name YUGU in 2017. 
Teng employs digital sound, electronic music, video and video installation to interpret technology and life via her sound and visual experiments. The anxiety and tension between human and technology has been central to her artistic concern, as she explores ways to express the soul and the digital ego. Her work Prisoners under the Torch (director and sound design) was awarded first prize of the 7th Digital Art Performance in 2016. She has performed and exhibited in many music and art festivals in Taiwan, France, China, Turkey, UK and Poland.

Sheryl Cheung was raised in Taipei, New York, and Beijing. She works between sound, installation, and performance to explore a material concept of life. Her current project uses plants as medium to question the motivations that drive us to innately prosper and persevere. Cheung has a background in abstract painting and choral music, and in her work today she continues to respond to the affects between multiple forces to create a field of energy flow. Her work has been shown internationally, including at Taipei Contemporary Art Center; Chronus Art Center, Shanghai; Osmosis Audiovisual Festival; Lacking Sound Festival; JOLT Arts Festival; and Jeju National Art Museum. Her performance Inland was nominated for Arte Laguna Art Prize in 2013.

Dino (aka Liao Ming-He) is a guqin (an ancient stringed Chinese musical instrument) maker and noise performer based in Taipei. Former bassist of the Clippers Band, he is a seminal figure in the second-wave noise movement in Taiwan during the late 1990s. He uses simple analogue equipment to create electronic sound without any input, which is known as ‘recycle music’ by generating loops from circuitry noise, static, or microphone feedback. Dino’s recent endeavors include experimental films and live music production for the theatre. He was awarded Best Sound Effects in Taipei Film Festival (2003). Dino’s particular fondness for British punk subculture and traditional Chinese classics has influenced both his work and life.
