The second of FP's 2-day intervention-insertion-installation-production performance at Asia Art Archive's new reading room concludes with a show window filled with “live” traces of FP players, friends and on-site visitors. … Another attempt to capture the rich diversities of the happenings, the author's attempt to preserve her own personal glimpses at least.
Between 2000 and 2020, a 6'38" single-take video footage has been turned into a generative series of art moments crossing artistic genres -- from videography, vocalization, sound collage, performance, sound sculpture, back to videography -- all manifesting automatism as a principle, and improvization as a main artistic method. Only the maker Linda Lai herself could elaborate on this secret history of emergence.
蔡俊希《把迷戀說成夢》。十個夢。十種心情。十種慾望。十種閱讀。Choi Chun Hei Jacky‘s ten successive rounds of automatic writing and subsequent modifications results in a readable work, in all of which the writer was strolling on the street alone at night, contemplating the mysteries of life — the complete series of the 10-dream series in Chinese…
蔡俊希《把迷戀說成夢》。十個夢。十種心情。十種慾望。Choi Chun Hei Jacky‘s Generative Literature project combines dream narrative based on his automatic writings. Ten successive rounds of automatic writing and subsequent modifications results in a readable work, in all of which the writer was strolling on the street alone at night, contemplating the mysteries of life.
From her pool of automatic drawings turned into wooden fragments of her dreamwork, young artist Cherie Wong was watching the stars inside her own universe. 王晴雯從她的木製「夢」碎片寶庫裡再掏出另一首圖文對話的詩，在她創造的世界裡觀星。
The inter-play of present and past tense is deliberate in contemplating the nature of memory — the fixing of attention onto nit-bits of the chaotic ocean of the past. I am also influenced by moving image creation — every work being the negotiation between the present continuous of the camera at work and the “already-past” of its articulation. 現在進行式與過去式時態的交替共用是「不假思索」法」而來的必然對策，也是現象學的意識論的創作性延伸，在猶如汪洋大海混沌波濤翻滾的「過去」投擲零星的關注點，構成接點的「回憶」，以至構成可被陳述的「經驗」。
From her 100 “fragments of fragmentary thoughts” inscribed onto painted wood pieces, Cherie Wong randomly picked two and started to open up their secrets. Cherie Wong 從她 100多塊「一個人的碎碎念」中隨機直覺的抽出兩小片來，打開它們隱藏的話匣子，聽它們娓娓道來。
Permanent youthfulness — a thought of no comfort at all! No certainty about the words I have, but those moments spent with Joey, a lasting imprint. Combining Joey’s writings she had shared in class with faint, ineffectual words I could barely utter, I post this buried poem today as a ritualist container for infinite nothingness. 這首詩是由我的文字和陸姵妏生前在我的文字創作工作坊裏分享過的作業的片段混合而成的。在黃花綠影之間虛實無分，是一個人？兩個人？多少種心情？精神思想記憶都漫飛無涯，涓湧成氣。除此，我對她的思念無以啟齒。十七年過去了，比我先行的學生還有幾個。…我總是為過去了的人寫詩。懷緬詩注定就是跟死亡手牽手的。奈何。
Push: Scary Stories is a story about story-telling in Linda Lai’s childhood, her land of fear and fascination co-created with her Grandma before bedtime. 「推」，推開了神秘的門，領進魔幻之地。《推：怕怕故事》推開了作者童年時候床頭說書的外婆伴著編織的幻想世界。這門，不過是眾多要推開的門的一道。
Push! And a door will open. Push is a special charm to Linda Lai, a magic word she has used for several of her artworks, “PUSH Push – automatism” shares glimpses of her mind-scape, an enigmatic zone with strides of montage and poetry.「推」，推開了神秘的門，領進魔幻之地。《推。推。不假思索》推開了作者某幾個時刻的紛繁思潮世界。斷、折，又絲連。是詩與蒙太奇的步履。
