今日的寶藏巖藝術村包覆著複雜的歷史,從清朝依山傍水的漳泉式寶藏巖寺(觀音亭),日本人興建的軍事倉庫、一路到國民政府建設的射擊哨和違建眷村,寶藏巖本身承載著族群的多元性。從二次大戰後初期大量外省人遷入,到了1990年代面臨政治介入與迫遷歷史,直到2004年,台北市古蹟暨歷史建築審查委員會審查通過,認定寶藏巖歷史聚落為「歷史建築」,形成古今相照的意象。換句話說,社會現代化過程中,在城市建築面貌裡,經過吸收、移植、再現後,我們同樣地能看見了與政治、社會的現代化發展有關的風景,反映了城市經過「新陳代謝化後的本土性」過程。

寶藏巖聚落存在於台灣的歷史。本次的展覽將寶藏巖聚落以一個社會具藝術性發生的「場域」角度切入,邀請藝術家共同探討與反映城市代謝化過程中呈現的文化、語言、勞動的過渡性。本次藉由藝術家林書楷的漂浮城市-移地計畫概念,衍生出「場域」的想像與實踐,或多或少呈現了城市的過去、現在、未來發生的多元面貌。

波蘭藝術團體Galeria Niewielka的Maciej Kurak和Max Skrowider,於瑞典馬爾默參與藝術節。由於馬爾默不僅是個港口,更鄰近北歐斯德哥爾摩、與東歐的德國和波蘭,也是過去15年來外來人口移民統計數量最高的城市。移動中的巨型貨櫃,裏頭有著大量來自非洲、俄羅斯、烏克蘭、南斯拉夫的非法移民,意味著他們不斷地在城市裡反覆工作,尋找屬於他們的落角處。作品中藝術家檢視了社會功能,特別是源自於社會現實中對人的觀察,即所謂的全球性與社會性之符號建構:具跨地域性、過渡性與社會性。

印尼攝影藝術家丹尼爾,反映印尼面臨國家經濟起飛的階段中,當地仍有許多地區停留在貧窮階段,當物價持續上漲,在為了保留印尼傳統穆斯林婚嫁大量使用鮮花的習俗,則使用了工業化大量生產且低廉的塑膠花取代,以維持傳統。印尼攝影藝術家賽朵則從田野調查中觀察到國家經濟起飛,面臨城市轉型的過程中,家庭廚房經濟樣貌可看出貧富落差顯著的變化。

越南國際女性藝術家吳氏垂緣,來自越南會安現居土耳其。踏訪台灣之前,從未聽聞在台灣的越南外籍配偶。2012年受邀來臺參加「南國‧國南──台越藝術家交流計畫」,開始親身訪查居住於台北北投和台南的外籍配偶,並在展覽中,將自己的身分轉化與台灣建築藝術家林信和的「虛擬婚姻」,呈現她一個月在台灣生活與訪查的心路歷程;臺灣藝術家張騰元長期關注越南移工與外配的議題,並搭建想像的房屋空間,透過臺灣舞者模擬越南外配的心路歷程;陳氏桃、維興、秋水、棃氏娥則以身為越南移工的身分,運用他們平日生活熟悉的媒材,像是水泥、報紙等藉由創作表達對家鄉濃濃的思情,以及對臺灣這片土地的獨特情懷。

本展覽從11月02日到12月31日,最後半個月將呈現在寶藏巖駐村藝術家林書楷的駐村創作。他的創作和家庭木製產業的有著強大的關聯,從台南的木製業沒落到林書楷的城市漂浮計畫,使得文化歷史與藝術詮釋產生新的連結。透過這樣的展覽計畫,讓大家意識到寶藏巖過去或許是個城市的角落,但今日已變成我們需要去正視的文化及歷史。讓這樣的展覽計畫,不只停留於藝術或觀光休閒地,而是一種構建台灣歷史與文化發生的「場域」之連結,進一步了解城市代謝後的本土性為何。

Today’s Treasure Hill Artist Village covered with a complex history, from the Qing Dynasty – Zhang/Quan style Guanyin Temple, the Japanese military warehouses, firing post construction of Nationalist government, and illegal military community. Treasure Hill itself exists and shows ethnical diversity. After WWII, a large number of mainlanders from the initial mainland moved to Taiwan, it had faced with eviction and political involvement during the 1990s. Until 2004, Taipei Heritage and Historic Architectural Review Committee reviewed and approved Treasure Hill historical settlements as “historic buildings”, which shows its past and now. In other words, the process of social modernization had caused “localization after metabolized” of landscape architecture due to multivariate absorption, transplantation, reproduction, including political and social development.

By 1930s, Modernist movement from Europe had influenced other countries, such as China, Japan and the United States. These countries, according to their own conditions, begin to absorb and transfer selectively, which simultaneously adopted in architecture, cultures and other presence.

Before WWII, China, Japan, and the United States more or less inherited modernization from Europe. After that, because of them, modernist movement had become international and could be found in many Third World countries such as Indonesia and Vietnam. The integration of modernity and localization had become clearer, also had made each country more characteristic for 20 years.

Taiwan society after WWII was in-between two political forces of United States and China, but we can still find massive influence since Japanese colonization. From the point of view of social modernization process in Taiwan, a large number of Japanese architects who absorbed after European modernist had achieved their architectural practice in Taiwan. Hence it had showed the diversity of architecture, including political, cultural and social modernization elements.

In correspondence with Treasure Hill settlement 20 years ago which located at margin of Taipei city, had been faced to be a part of Taipei metropolitan area, residents had been defending their garden to avoid city expansion. The protection of Treasure Hill was explicitly highlighted after government tried to integrate with Taipei metropolitan through the ways of law of Land.

Treasure Hill settlement exists in Taiwan history. The exhibition at Treasure Hill settlement as a society with artistic oriented “settlement/venue”, inviting artists to explore and reflect the present culture, language, transitional labor, field interpretations of history under the process of urban metabolism. How to discuss when “settlement/venue” shifts into an artistic media= channel = information exchange platform is important because it allows this city to show the diversity of its past, present and future. Invited artists from Poland, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Taiwan are going to explore the multi-response by gender, labor movement, and sense of identity.

Ngo Thuy Duyen is a renowned international female artist in Vietnam, but before landing Taiwan, she never heard of Vietnamese wife in Taiwan. In 2012, the exhibition ” South country, country of south ─ Taiwan and Vietnamese artists international exchange project”. Ngo Thuy Duyen started to do the research of Vietnamese wife who are living in Beitou and Tainan, in the end of exhibition, she transformed her identity and practiced “virtual marriage” with Taiwanese artist; Indonesian photography artist Daniel Satyagraha is reflecting on the blossom of Indonesian economy but many of areas still remain poor. When fresh flower prices continued to rise up, people in order to preserve Indonesian traditional Muslim marriage customs using fresh flowers. People must change to use plastic flowers replaced to maintain the tradition under the industrialized production.

History can be displayed with artistic methods by Polish artist Galeria Niewielka (Maciej Kurak / Max Skorwider), indicating Poland as an emerging country has been exporting labors to Switzerland. They examine the social functions, especially with the observation of human reality: the reality is that people as migrant workers in other countries are a global and popular agenda, and an important symbol of social construction nowadays.

The exhibition showcase from 2 November to 8 December, in the last two weeks we will be presented Lin Shu- Kai ‘s Treasure Hill Artist Residency creation. Lin Shu-Kai’s creative industries is related to his family wood industry. In Lin Shu-Kai’s floating city project, we will discover how wood industry in Tainan declines, and find the new links between making interpretation of cultural history and art between generations. Through the exhibition we are looking forward to giving the audience the platform to acknowledge the true existence of treasure hill. It is a part of our culture and history today. So such a residency program, is not just an artistic or touristic leisure place, but has an historical meaning behind it .
