原本應沈浸於奧運狂熱的2020年,因突如其來的COVID-19讓都市陷入沈寂,前所未聞的現實讓政治經濟陷入混亂前景不明,對人類而言這是一場前所未見的大浩劫。 然而這場浩劫也帶來諸多省思。人類因為外出移動受限,活動量銳減,空氣污染影響減輕,環境獲得改善。若因人類限制行動,讓大自然恢復活力,我不禁要懷疑,這是否證明人類的存在對大自然就是一場災難? 工業革命後約200年來,人類活動致使森林遭到破壞與氣候變遷,全球人口爆增,嚴重擠壓到大自然與其他生物的生存空間,人類世時代隨之問世。直到COVID-19蔓延,大眾才開始有切身感受。但這同時也是一個契機,讓大眾重新認知過去在人類中心主義掩蓋下存在的世界。正如同文化人類學家克勞德‧李維史陀(Claude Lévi-Strauss)在其著作《憂鬱的熱帶》中所言,「這個世界開始的時候,人類並不存在,這個世界結束的時候,人類也不會存在。」 ,遠在人類誕生前許久,大自然就一直屹立不搖的存在。 透過以人類為首的進步主義,人類免於大自然的威脅在壓榨其他生命的同時,人類也受到大自然曠日廢時地長期孕育。本展覽除了同時涵蓋上述兩個面向之外,在重新思考過往的典範移轉之際,也隱射出建構新生命循環以迎向未來的轉換期。 1 克勞德.李維史陀,《憂鬱的熱帶》,王志明譯,臺北;聯經出版事業股份有限公司,2017,頁626。 2020 was supposed to be a bustling year with the organization of the Olympics. The unexpected outbreak of COVID-19 has silenced all cities. This reality has exceeded the imagination of most people, bringing disorder and chaos to economy and politics. This is a disaster mankind has never encountered before. Nonetheless, we have also discovered in this situation other facts. For example, due to restriction of movement, human activities are limited, and we can see some improvements in the environment, such as reduced air pollution. If restriction of human movements enables nature to regain vitality, then it is only inevitable that people have this question: does this prove that, to nature, the existence of men is a disaster? In nearly 200 years after the Industrial Revolution, human activities have led to deforestation and climate change so severe that scientists have proposed the new epoch dating concept of “Anthropocene,” which shows that mankind has grown to a degree where we disregard nature and other beings. The COVID-19 pandemic has made this fact a question much more relevant to us. Also, this could be an opportunity for us to once again get to know the world we previously overlooked due to anthropocentrism. However, just as Claude Lévi-Strauss says in Tristes tropiques that “The world began without the human race and it will end without it.” nature had already been a kind of eternal and pure existence way before men were born onto this world. The humancentric progressivism has enabled mankind to escape the threats of nature, but on the other hand it has also enabled men to continually exploit other life forms; nurturing nature takes a very long time, and mankind is also a part of nature. This exhibition includes the two facts mentioned above, reconsiders past paradigms, and shifts the focus onto a transitional period towards the future, constructing a brand-new circle of life. 1 Claude Lévi-Strauss, Tristes Tropiques, Translated by John Russell. New York : Criterion Books. 2006. pp.397.

展覽方

國立臺灣美術館 National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts

國立臺灣美術館於民國77年(1988年)開館。以視覺藝術為主導,典藏並研究臺灣現代與當代美術發展特色,致力於多樣性的主題規劃特展與藝術教育推廣活動,提供民眾多元化欣賞藝術的環境。 以臺灣美術為研究核心,本館以建構臺灣美術史的詮釋內容與詮釋體系,開拓對美術發展現象及議題的多面向探討,創造數位及跨領域藝術發展之平臺,以擴大與國際相關藝術機構對話的空間,結合典藏、展覽、推廣等功能,打造兼具專業性、教育性與未來發展性的公共美術館。 依據三大核心主軸:「臺灣美術發展脈絡」、「媒材類別發展脈絡」、「藝術家風格與系譜」,本館研究調查國內外藝術生態與發展,近年並兼顧亞洲藝術家作品典藏,期能深化臺灣與亞洲當代藝術發展研究,拓展臺灣藝術與國際接軌的面寬和能量。累積的藏品,是建構臺灣美術史發展脈絡與研究藝術家風格表現之重要資產,亦可視為臺灣各時期社會脈動、經濟與文化發展樣貌的縮影。 本館並肩負守護臺灣美術資產的重任,建置圖像與文字豐富的多元資料庫,強化以資訊科技輔助藏品之自動化管理與服務機制,守護且活用本館所典藏的藝術資產,成為國家文化競爭力的資本與全民共享的資源。 身為國家級美術館,本館除了以展現臺灣藝術創作的特色與發展自許,更積極強化藝術研究、延展臺灣藝術的系譜研究、開展國際對話與視野,提升國家文化藝術的內在精神與涵養。在文化交流上,則強化館際合作,並與國際接軌,加強與國內、外美術館和專家學者的共同合作,規劃啟發視覺文化、分享藝術價值的展覽活動;同時以多元化的推廣藝術教育活動,引介臺灣藝術的特色,讓民眾了解藝術的精華,而達到以藝術向下紮根並向上延展文化認知的目標。 The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMoFA) was founded in 1988. The NTMoFA is dedicated to the education and promotion of visual arts. It places great emphasis on collecting works by Taiwanese artists and exploring unique characteristics of modern and contemporary Taiwanese arts. Its aims are: to organize the most diverse range of themed visual art exhibitions, to foster long-term art exchanges with overseas institutions, to actively participate in major international events, to promote art education, and to provide the public with a pleasing and multi-faceted environment for viewing art. The NTMoFA has primarily focused its research work on the fine arts of Taiwan. The Museum's research team sets the agenda and direction for the permanent exhibitions. From 2007 onward, the NTMoFA has organized permanent exhibitions on significant works from the NTMoFA's permanent collection. An all-encompassing artistic and educational institution, the NTMoFA serves multiple functions as an art collector, exhibition organizer and learning resource provider. The NTMoFA charts the trajectory of Taiwanese arts with its unique collection of artworks by Taiwanese artists from the 18th century to the present day. Its permanent collection includes artworks and historical documentation from Ming-Qing Dynasties, through the era of Japanese Colonial Era and the Modernist period, to the post-war period. To convincingly articulate the diversity of Taiwanese fine arts and its developments and transitions over time, the NTMoFA presents its collection of Taiwanese artworks based on two dimensions of development. Whereas the vertical axis charts the historical contexts of Taiwanese fine arts, the horizontal axis shows a genealogy of artists and their works. The presentation gives a clear picture of how artists and their works may relate to the social-historical contexts from which they have emerged and prospered. Digitalization of the museum collection and documentation has not only enabled the NTMoFA to manage and maintain its art collection with more efficiency, but also effectively enhanced understanding and dialogues among the art community worldwide, as it provides international art lovers with fast and easy access to the wealth of Taiwanese art and its diverse and unique characteristics. The NTMoFA is a national art museum dedicated to the research, education and promotion of Taiwanese art. In terms of research, the museum continues to concentrate on tracing the genealogy of Taiwanese arts. In terms of education, its aim is to enhance the artistic capacity of the nation. It should also be highlighted that the NTMoFA has always been a true ambassador of Taiwanese art, as it seeks to promote international cultural exchange by actively participating in international art exhibitions, and by collaborating with international arts-and-cultural organizations and individual experts in organizing arts events. By providing a diverse range of arts and educational activities, the NTMoFA introduces to the public the characteristics of Taiwanese arts and help the visitors appreciate the beauty of art. The ultimate aim of the Museum is to extend and deepen the public's interest in arts.
