「 海美/沒館」正式開「管」營運 !

「《海 美/沒 館》——從海洋沒人管到海洋美術館暨多元近用展」,8/13將於位在基隆八斗子海濱的「國立海洋科技博物館」開展,長年關注海洋與環境變遷的藝術家拉黑子,將橫陳於太平洋邊岸的海廢,凝結成海洋美術館、海洋地圖等大型雕塑,提供觀眾另一種身歷太平洋的另類途徑。

《海 美/沒 館》試圖反映海洋文化的「共時性」與「在場性」,拉黑子以他歷年使用海廢物件所建構而出的海洋敘事與感性形式基礎,再往前擴增,透過「海 美/沒 館」陳設於美術館、博物館的雙重空間指涉,探討曾經是族人所使用的物品,被「凝結」置入了各種「館」中,而那些獵奇的人們曾使用的物件,強勢進入了部落的生活,廢棄物流散海洋等種種當代觀看視角與環境關係變化。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。

本展覽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?透過創作者的眼與手、撿拾與觀看,我們一起正視海洋的改變,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。

在本次個展中,海科館首次與藝術家拉黑子攜手結合環境藝術創作與多元智慧語音導覽,並以「文化近用 Making Culture Accessible to All」的理念,推動友善平權及多元文化,除了一般大眾能透過語音導覽更深入了解藝術家創作之意涵外,包括視障朋友、聽障朋友,亦能夠透過語音協助、口述影像的敘說以及手語影片、點字等服務,同樣享有親近海洋環境藝術作品之權利,這是海科館對於國內外博物館近年來推廣「文化近用」與「社會共融」概念的積極回應。希望能夠滿足不同群體都能友善進入博物館的權利,讓全民接近與瞭解海洋環境藝術。

Artist Rahic Talif was born in the Makota’ay Pangcah Community. His hometown is a narrow hinterland hugging the Pacific Ocean and bisected by the Siuguluan River. The inconvenience of transportation meant that Rahic’s home was among the last Pangcah communities to be modernized, maintaining relatively abundant traditional maritime knowledges. Thus Makota’ay Pangcah understand how to live in harmony with the ocean. The ocean remains an important subsistence resource for their community. Rahic has personally observed how both the natural environment and social structure has been transformed in a few short decades, as if in the aftermath of a typhoon.

To Rahic, making a living and learning lessons from the ocean is as natural as breathing. For millennia his people have drifted, following the Kuroshiro Current and other currents, moving along with the pulse of entire South Pacific. Their perception and logic have maintained this connection without interruption. Over the past 30 years, Rahic has kept the ocean as the core of his artistic practice as he engages in deep dialogues with the environment, culture, economy, values, and ethnic identification. The series of works Marine Museum of Art / Indifference—From Indifference to the Ocean to the Marine Museum of Art represents the crystallization of several years of thinking about the ocean in relationship to culture.

This series of works created by Rahic over a period of several years includes works in driftwood, marine debris, found objects, and other media. All of these are items that the artist personally gathered from the beach, transforming them into a fusion of sculpture, installation, and mixed media works. Entering into these works, one can see where Rahic has written the names of fish, shellfish, aquatic plants, and places, inscribing many kinds of Pacific Ocean consciousness. To Rahic, we should no longer overlook the ocean. The ocean is both in his genes and a place that he reveres. Yet, there are still too many conflicts that arise here. In The Marine Museum of Art / Indifference Rahic hopes to explore the beliefs we hold. What is it that you truly believe? What does your spirit ultimately depend upon? It is true or not? If the truest thing to you is your everyday life, why do you feel no need to give back to the environment which sustains you?
