《海 美/沒 館》 The Marine Museum of Art / Indifference

從海洋沒人管到海洋美術館
From Marine Debris to the Marine Museum of Art

《海 美/沒 館》是藝術家拉黑子一系列試圖反映海洋文化「共時性」與「在場性」的作品。以歷年使用海廢物件所建構而出的海洋敘事與感性形式,再往前擴增,透過「海 美/沒 館」陳設於「美術館」的雙重空間指涉,探討曾經是族人所使用的物品,被「凝結」置入了各種「館」中;而那些遠遠觀看我等的人們曾使用的物件,卻挾帶著他們的各種日常進入了我們的生活。

如今人們漸漸失去對海洋的敬畏、禁忌跟儀式,我們不再有機會讓海洋喘息。而文明不要的東西卻終歸流向大海,流散海洋,也覆蓋礁岩,封鎖了生命創造的地方,而那曾是我們心靈寄託的所在,也是餵養我們的獵場。

作品反思各種神聖莊嚴的「館」本質,亦探問人們心中的信仰、心靈的依靠是什麼?也再往前回應藝術家於太平洋邊岸所提出的「撿拾」與「觀看」。讓海洋的改變,真實的回到個人的生活脈絡,並共同意識,下一階段的文明應有的樣貌。

 

The Marine Museum of Art / Indifference

From Marine Debris to the Marine Museum of Art

In The Marine Museum of Art / Indifference Rahic Talif attempts to reflect both the synchronicity maritime culture and its presence, that it is always at hand to us in our practices of world building. In this series of works, Rahic amplifies the marine narratives and perceptual forms that he has fashioned, over the last several years, from sea waste materials. Moreover, through the dual reference to art and indifference produced by institutional spaces such as the art museum, his Marine Museum of Art explores how various institutions have frozen the uses and meanings of objects once used by his people. Yet those objects people once used, now looked at from a great distance in museums, still manage to sneak many kinds of everydayness into our lives. These days, people have gradually lost their reverence for the ocean, with its associated taboos and rituals. We no longer have the opportunity to let the ocean take a breath. The things that civilization no longer wants finally flow into the ocean. Dispersing through the sea, they cover the reefs and block the place where life was created, the places to which our hearts were once knit, the places that were the hunting grounds that once fed us. The works in The Marine Museum of Art / Indifference reflect on the essence of various sacred and solemn institutions. They also ask us, “What are the beliefs in people’s hearts? On what do their spirits depend?” Thus they provoke further responses to Rahic’s proposed ways of collecting and observing along the Pacific Coast. They truly bring the variation of the ocean back into our individual lives and collectively realize the way future civilization should manifest itself
