幻術中的螢幕|侯思齊個展

Screen in Illusion  Ssu-Chi Hou Solo Exhibition

《幻術中的螢幕》欲使展覽現場化為一個影像,即水谷藝術由地下一樓到頂樓的空間,融合數位影像、空間影像與影像物件,形塑出一個虛實混合,虛實難辨的影像場。

螢幕是數位時代下成熟的影像技術,螢幕外框將影像劃出一道界線,而影像是否具有(或是可不可以有)邊框?侯思齊提出影像映射的創作手法使邊框成為影像,模糊了影像(虛擬)與現實的邊界,影像擴張至邊框之外,使現實空間數位化。若現實趨於虛幻,此時最真實的反而是原先界定虛實的邊框,邊框指涉的是何物,框內與框外又該如何界定,是此次展覽提出的命題。

在往上的樓層當中,進一步地將邊框關係延伸至現實,擷取展場中的光影與格框,試將影像與建築體疊合,真實世界的自然光與虛擬影像的數位光相互交錯,不斷地在空間中框出虛實內外;樓層創造層層堆疊的影像空間,既可以視作壓縮為一體的總體影像,也可以如圖層一般拆開單獨體驗。本展覽邀請觀眾從不同面向重新審視數位日常,在跳脫與無法跳脫現場所處的空間同時,回應我們所處的時代下,影像機制產生的技術思維與視覺認知。

“Screen in Illusion” aims to transform the exhibition site into an image, i.e., the space from the ground floor to the top floor of Waley Art. By fusing digital images, spatial images, and video objects, the space becomes a field of images that mixes indistinguishable reality and virtual.

The screen is a well-used imagery technology in the digital era. Since the outer frame of the screen draws a boundary of images, does the image have (or can it have) a border? Ssu-Chi Hou proposes a technique of image mapping to turn the border into an image, blurring the boundary between image (virtual) and reality, and expanding the image beyond the border to digitize the real space. If reality tends to be illusory, what is most real at that moment is the original border that defines reality and illusion, and what the border refers to, and how to define what is inside and outside the border, are the questions raised in this exhibition.

On the upper floors, the border relationship is further extended to reality, capturing the light and frame of the exhibition, trying to overlap the images with the architecture. The natural light of the real world and the digital light of the virtual image intertwine, constantly framing the real and the virtual in and out of space. The floors create layers of stacked image space, which can be viewed as a compressed total image or broken down into separate experiences like layers. This exhibition invites the audience to re-examine the digital every day from different perspectives and to respond to the technical thinking and visual cognition generated by the image mechanism in our time while jumping out of the space where we are and cannot jump out of the scene.

藝術家簡介

侯思齊1996出生於臺灣臺北,目前生活與工作於臺灣新北。

關注現代影像技術下,人們用什麼姿態閱讀數位影像,在資訊包圍的日常中,真實該如何被辨認。創作以影像操作影像機器,同時存在於數位空間與現實空間,透過於不同維度中移動影像,形構出一個影像場。以不同視角的觀賞方式,刺激觀者思考所見視覺的「真」。他的影像強調光與影的本質、影像的物質性以及使用數位影像的身體經驗。

 

作品曾獲北藝當代創作獎優選(2021)、宜蘭獎入選(2021)、新媒體藝術卓越獎首獎與入圍(2020、2018)、 世安美學獎_造型藝術類(2016)

Ssu-Chi Hou was born in 1996 in Taipei, Taiwan and currently lives and works in New Taipei City, Taiwan.

His works concerned on how people read digital images with modern image technology, and how reality is recognized in the information-encapsulated daily life. He works with image-operated video machine, which exists in both digital and real space, creates an image field by moving images in different dimensions. He uses different perspective to stimulate the viewer to consider the "truth" of the visuals they see. His images emphasize the nature of light and shadow, the materiality of images, and the physical experience of using digital images.

He has received awards from Contemporary Art Prize, Yilan Art Awards, Out Standing New Media Art Award, and SANCF Awards.
