Linda Lai / Preserving the Energy of Videography: In Defense of Manifestos (1) 就為了滋養創造知識的能量,繼續宣言(1)

The “Prolog” of “Our Manifestos II: Videography, Documentary Impulses” (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 5 parts, project initiator Linda Lai relates the process of the book-creation project and the different takes of the many artists involved. 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。

Winnie Yan / Proper Nouns: Confession on ending things with “Localized Blindness” 專有名詞-以《局部失明》作結的自白

Winnie Yan / Proper Nouns: Confession on ending things with “Localized Blindness” 專有名詞-以《局部失明》作結的自白

Localized Blindness (2019-2020) is Winnie Yan’s most recently completed video work, for Manifesto 2. She spotlit the backstage of the work’s making process, performing the complex world of thoughts and emotions traversing within. 忻慧妍的《局部失明》含蓄如密碼佈陣,定睛創作的後台是另一種風景。與其說是心情和動機上的剖白,不如說是現在進行式的隨著她的思緒找發聲的調韻。聽一個人所訴之白跟看著一個人訴白,是兩個不同的經驗,都源自記錄的衝動。
