地點:台北當代藝術中心 錄像廳,台北市大同區保安街49巷11號B1(捷運大橋頭站)








「TCAC 錄像廳」是鑲嵌於TCAC內部的多義性影像活動空間,旨在開放「作為檔案的影像」與「作為活動的影像」之間的聯繫可能性。它是一個多變的概念性空間,處於私密房間與公共空間之間的曖昧地帶;同時亦是一種併發於視、聽、肢體、皮層等官能性活動的影像症候群。TCAC 錄像廳是TCAC的浮動記憶體,它作為TCAC藝術家檔案室功能的全新延伸,提供一個讓研究者與錄像密切對話的私房場域。


即將於2月3日在TCAC舉行的Video Lounge開幕夜中,我們希望調動與徵集藝術家的「私房影像」,放映從未發表或鮮少發表的影像創作,將影像由藝術家的工作角落裡呼喚而出。在現場透過由觀眾回應之「雞尾酒點評」的特殊對話方式,實驗一種影像作為交往型態的可能性,使影像成為開放性的話語試劑。






TCAC錄像廳由黃其玟與Bart Dekker所贊助


Opening+Screening+Cocktail Critique: February 3, 2016, 7:30-9:30pm

Venue: Video Lounge, Taipei Contemporary Art Center, B1, No. 11, Lane 49, Baoan Street, Taipei (MRT: Daqiaotou Station)


Video is a plural language / Video as an archive syndrome /

Video as self-proliferation of everyday life

Video is the exile of the cinema / Video is anti-propaganda / Video is self-retrospection / Video is movements / Video is a solitary island

Video is subconsciousness / Video is underground

Video is the shade of moon / Video is the ocean


TCAC Video Lounge is a polysemous space for activities of and around moving images in Taipei Contemporary Art Center, opening the possibilities to engage and enact the concept of “image as archive” and “image as movement.” As a versatile space, it is a conceptual zone between a private room and public space with undefined destinations and determined aims—it is an imagery syndrome of the visual, audio, physical and cortical sensory activities. TCAC Video Lounge that functions as the floating memory space of TCAC is the new extension of artists’ archives, providing intimate encounters and dialogues between visiting researchers and video works.


To celebrate the grand launch event for the TCAC Video Lounge, we host an open call to collect and screen artists’ private editions of their own unexhibited or rarely shown video works. It is a peculiar sharing moment that we wish to create and connect the private corners of artists’ studios with an art space. A special peer critique via live cocktail-making reviews by audience will mediate various conversation channels to seek for the social capacity of the imagery as an open linguistic component.


It is an open call that invites your videos to be seen, shared and drunk. Bring your works and join our playlist on the spot at TCAC!


How to Participate: Please bring the file of your video work (less than 20-minute duration preferable), your spirit to share your critiques as well as reciprocity, and your appetite for running cocktails to TCAC in Feburary 3. We will kill the radio star with video art!
