Linda Lai / The Dialectics of Fluid Manifestos: In Defense of Manifestos (3) 宣言、記述的辯證關係,創造知識的能量,繼續宣言(3)

Our Manifestos II upholds videography beyond the concern of moving image aesthetics and opens up the ethics of art practices to embrace the complex, crisis-ridden contexts in which we live. In the 3rd of the 5-part series, Linda Lai maintains the necessity of manifesto-writing to be fluid, performative, dialectical practices.《我們的錄像宣言2》於「據點一杯茶」5次連載的第3篇:黎肖嫻堅持宣言寫作思維實踐上的獨立性,撇開西方現代性的歷史包袱,辯證的、演述式的、柔潤的發揮宣言的力,儘管如何短暫,有待轉化。

The “Prolog” of “Our Manifestos II” (2021.05) explicitly examines videography as a way of living, an attitude of life, and the quest for in-depth transformation in the midst of complex, crisis living. In the 2nd of the 5-part series, Linda Lai discusses videography as soundings, ways to voice out as crafted thought paths, the materiality of remembering as micro narratives.《我們的錄像宣言2》於「據點一杯茶」5次連載的第2篇:黎肖嫻開宗明義把錄像書寫看為一種創作人的活的型態和取向,以至於對深度轉化的渴求。如是,對錄像書寫的認知遠超狹義的藝術操守和理所當然的影像美學。這次,她提出了錄像書寫作為「發聲」的藝術的面向。「記住」,必須透過「思路」的展現,而這就是錄像的「微」敘事性格。

Part 1 describes the meandering journey. 「據點一杯茶」將以5次短篇連載《我們的錄像宣言2:記述的衝動》的序言。黎肖嫻開宗明義把錄像書寫看為一種創作人的活的型態和取向,以至於對深度轉化的渴求,以對應如何活在繁複、糾結、充滿噪音的當下。如是,錄像書寫的認知和反省遠超狹義的藝術操守和理所當然的影像美學。首篇記述召集各方創作人合力分享所穿過的崎嶇過程。
