澎葉生+許雁婷+蔡宛璇:〈聲土不二-嘉義聲音再生計劃〉

›››› English

繼葉‧芭塔娜(Yael Bartana)的〈...而歐洲將為之震驚〉之後,台北立方計劃空間將於8月25日,推出「重見/建社會」主題策劃展第六檔──由澎葉生(Yannick Dauby)、許雁婷與蔡宛璇三人所合作的〈聲土不二-嘉義聲音再生計劃〉,展覽開幕當天並邀請詩人鍾永豐與藝術家對談。

「重見/建社會」策展計劃,目的在於提出並反思當代生活的特質、個體或集體生活經驗與其轉變,以此重新建構我們身處當代社會中的「視野」與「想像」──特別是當下,應去省思在我們所處之高度景觀化社會裡,還如何能以具有批判力的眼光去發現在「景觀」的遮蔽之下,人與人、人與地方、地方與地方的真正關係?接續前一檔〈...而歐洲將為之驚震〉探討尖銳的歐洲歷史與政治現實,〈聲土不二-嘉義聲音再生計劃〉則深入台灣在地,以聲音呈現地方的文化、環境、社會的紋理。


關於〈聲土不二-嘉義聲音再生計劃〉

影像是否只是視覺的結果?聽覺如何能夠產生比視覺更豐富的感知與想像?田野紀錄素材如何被再次詮釋?〈聲土不二-嘉義聲音再生計劃〉將以多層次的聆聽空間回答這些問題。

這檔展覽的源起為2008年, 嘉義縣政府文化處希望進行「嘉義聲音採集和資料庫建置計劃」,由來自南法的澎葉生(Yannick Dauby)與當時在大大樹音樂圖像任職專案的許雁婷二位進行全部計劃的規劃和田野聲音紀錄工作, 當時的文化處處長是詩人鍾永豐。此計劃目的是希望廣泛地採集嘉義縣十八鄉鎮的聲音,並在未來建置為可供分享的聲音資料庫。

在「嘉義聲音計劃」駐地執行期間,透過文獻資料以及與當地居民的接觸交往,查勘值得錄下聲音的地點、事件和人物,澎葉生與許雁婷在為期十二個月的時間裡,採集了幾乎包羅萬象的聲音。這些聲音區分為六大主題:口述歷史、民間藝術、自然生態、產業、宗教信仰、節慶活動。

在「嘉義聲音計劃」第二階段結束的三年後,澎葉生、許雁婷與蔡宛璇從龐大的田野錄音素材裡,抽取部份聲音,以其建構出全新的聽覺情境,呈現於〈聲土不二-嘉義聲音再生計劃〉展覽中。展場區分為數個部份,其中最主要的區域為透過多種發聲媒介佈置出的多聲道聆聽空間, 以田野錄音為素材, 並汲取「聲音紀錄片」的精神於作品中。雖然刻意弱化視覺元素,但本展並不缺乏影像,觀/聽眾在聆聽過程中,會發現聲音也可以挑起飽含豐富影像的想像。

於本展8月25日開幕當天,同時邀請鍾永豐至現場與三位藝術家舉行座談,除了回顧「嘉義聲音計劃」,也將討論台灣聲音文化的現況。

註:開幕酒會當天,參觀來賓於展場中請儘量輕聲交談,以維護展覽的忠實呈現。

關於澎葉生
聲音藝術工作者,他的創作和研究約始於1996年在法國學習的具象音樂。從音樂開始並延展極廣:即興演出、電子原音音樂(electroacoustique)編曲,以及人類音樂學。1998年開始田野錄音工作,在大自然、都會和工業環境中進行錄音,成為他聲音紀錄片及編曲的素材,或與其它聲音媒介對話,時而與影像創作結合。作品發表形式如:即興演出、聆聽活動、出版或聲響裝置。其創作主軸為對於聽覺經驗的實驗和探索,並十分著迷於民族學與自然科學。作品常參與國際活動,亦常與聲音藝術家、現代舞(2007年開始與台灣驫舞劇場合作)及視覺藝術家(如與蔡宛璇進行拾景人系列創作)合作。 近幾年來持續在台灣各地進行田野錄音與發表,未來幾年計劃透過藝術活動、聲音紀錄及教學行動持續在這個島嶼中探索。(個人網站: www.kalerne.net

關於許雁婷
文字/聲音工作者。與聲音工作的緣份始於「嘉義聲音計劃」,此後開展對聲音藝術的興趣和研究。喜歡探索聲音與生活、環境、族群文化的連結關係,聲音之於周遭世界另種角度的體認,並以田野錄音素材從事聲音紀錄片及音景創作,作品多富敘事性。2010年獲國藝會補助赴英、法進行「網路電台作為發展聲音藝術平台」訪談調查。今年獲選至「成龍溼地國際環境藝術節」駐村,以當地田野錄音與資源回收物在村中老房子製作一聲音裝置。作品曾發表於英國Formosa Show、法國網路電台Art Radio、失聲祭等,近期嚐試與表演藝術團體或創作者合作,其中包括舞蹈團隊「周先生」。

關於蔡宛璇
澎湖成長,旅法數年,現居台北地區。創作媒介從裝置、圖像、錄像和詩文著手,她的裝置作品經常具暫時性,並與所存在的空間構成一特殊關係。而她的錄像創作受實驗電影啓發,呈現開放性的敘事空間或將風景轉變為內在活動的折射,時而與詩作結合。 2004年與聲音藝術工作者澎葉生合作「拾景人」系列創作計劃,並陸續於台北、法國、愛沙尼亞駐村,透過展覽、出版、錄像或小型演出等形式發表的駐地影音創作。 著有個人詩文集〈潮 汐〉(2006),第二本詩集出版籌備中。近幾年也開展藝術領域周邊的創作空間,如:社群與藝術的交會、與其它藝術人文領域的人或團體合作、以及2008年與澎葉生共同成立回看工作室(kalerne.net/hui-kan/),聚焦在聲音藝術推廣與出版、社群藝術等項目的策劃與實踐 。

Opening: Saturday, August 25, 2012. 3-5pm
Artist talk: August 25, 2012. 5-7pm /with guest speaker Zhong Yong-Feng

Following ...And Europe Will Be Stunned by Yael Bartana, TheCube Project Space will present the sixth installment of the "Re-envisioning Society" series on August 25, Revitalization of Chiayi Sound Project, a collaboration between Yannick Dauby, Yen-Ting Hsu and Wan-Shuen Tsai.

The curatorial project "Re-envisioning Society" aims at manifesting and reflecting on the characteristics of contemporary life, as well as individual or collective life experiences and their changes, in order to construct a new vision and imagination of the contemporary society we are in. In particular, in view of the present "society of the spectacle", it explores how we can discover the genuine relationships between people, between man and place and between places hidden behind the "spectacle" with a critical eye. While the previous installment ...And Europe Will Be Stunned explores controversial European history and political reality, Revitalization of Chiayi Sound Project probes into native Taiwan, using sound to manifest the texture of local culture, environment and society.


About Revitalization of Chiayi Sound Project

Are images only visual? How does the sense of hearing produce richer perceptions and imagination than the sense of sight? How do we reinterpret the materials collected in field investigation? Revitalization of Chiayi Sound Project answers these questions with a multi-layered listening space.

This exhibition originates in 2008, when the Cultural Affairs Department of the Chiayi County Government launched the project "Collection and Archiving of Chiayi Sounds". Yannick Dauby from southern France and Yen-Ting Hsu who was a project manager at Tree Music & Art undertook the planning and the sound collection field work of the project. The then Director-General of the Cultural Affairs Department was the poet Chung Yung-fung. The project aimed at collecting sounds from the eighteen townships of Chiayi County and building a sound archive for future sharing.

During the implementation of the "Chiayi Sound Project", the places, events and people whose sounds were worth recording were identified by consulting literature and local residents. During a period of 12 months, Yannick Dauby and Yen-Ting Hsu collected a multifarious array of sounds. They are divided into six themes: oral history, folk art, the natural ecology, industries, religion and festivities.

Three years after stage II of the "Chiayi Sound Project" was completed, Yannick Dauby, Yen-Ting Hsu and Wan-Shuen Tsai extract some sounds from the vast field recordings archive to construct a new aural environment to be presented in Revitalization of Chiayi Sound Project. The exhibition area is divided into several zones. The main area is a multi-channeled listening space set up with various sound reproduction devices. Based on the materials of the field recordings, the work is influenced by "sound documentary". Even though the visual element is deliberately reduced, this exhibition is not lacking in images. During the process of listening, the audience/listeners will find that sounds can conjure up rich images in their imagination.

On the opening day of this exhibition on August 25, TheCube Project Space will invite Zhong Yong-Feng to hold a discussion with the three artists. Apart from looking back at the "Chiayi Sound Project", they will also talk about the present state of Taiwanese sound culture.

*During the opening reception, guests are requested to speak softly to ensure the faithful rendering of the exhibition.


About Yannick Dauby

His sound practice was initiated around 1996, studying tape music (musique concrète in French) : discovery of the physicality of the magnetic tape, vertigo-inducing analog synthesis and acousmatic pleasures. However, it's outdoor that things really started. He began working with field recording since 1998, during a travel in a distant country, capturing fragments of environments, urban situations, animal signals and unusual acoustic phenomenas. Those are his favorite materials, sometimes published like they are as phonographies, or providing some montage elements for some audio documentaries or musical compositions. On stage, he improvises mainly with recorded sounds, modular synthesizer and computer. Regular collaborations with other sound artists, contemporary dance (since 2007, produces soundtracks for Horse Dance Company in Taiwan) or in association with visual artists (such as the creations about landscape with Wan-Shuen Tsai). Experimenting the perception of acoustic spaces with sound installations. His active discography includes personal compositions, documentations of performances, and selected phonographies. Fascinated by ethnology and natural sciences, he often wanders into these domains in collaboration with naturalists or during community-based projects in Taiwan in Hakka or aborigine villages. Plans for the next years include more exploration sessions of the island through artistic activities and sound documentation as well as teaching actions. (www.kalerne.net)


About Yen-Ting Hsu

Her affinity to working with sound started from Chiayi Sound Project, which opened up her interests and study toward sound art. Yen-Ting investigates the connection among sound, life, environment, and ethno-culture; sound is her approach to realize different perspectives of today's world. Adopting materials from field recordings to create audio documentaries and soundscapes, her works is often told with narrative. She went to England and France to carry out a study of "Web-radio as a platform of developing sound art" in 2010. In 2012, she was selected as a residency artist in Cheng-long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project, and used field recordings and recycled objects to create a sound installation in an old house of the village. Her sound works have shown in Formosa Show (England), Arte Radio (France), Lacking Sound Festival (Taiwan) etc. Currently she often tries to collaborate with groups or creators of performing art, and collaborates much with Chou/Shu-yi & Dancers.


About Wan-Shuen Tsai

Wan-Shuen Tsai grew up in the archipelago of Penghu, Taiwan. Studied and lived in France during several years and nowadays settled in the region of Taipei. Her artwork is shared between mixed-media installation, drawing, video and poetry. Her installations are ephemeral and constitutes a specific relationship to the physical space and architecture. Her image creation suggests an opening of narration and transforms a landscape into a mental space. In parallel of her personal projects, she collaborates since 2004 with sound artist Yannick Dauby under the group name Shijingren, focusing on audio-visual works about landscape. This project has been invited by artist residencies in France, Taiwan and Estonia. In 2008, founded Atelier Hui-Kan developping activities related to pedagogy, publication and communities (www.hui-kan.com). In 2006, she published a collection of her poems and she's currently preparing the second one.
