《贈與:魂牽夢縈的靈魂》

駐村期間,受蕭壠年度計畫交陪展的啟發,藝術家嘗試提問,那些已逝去的靈魂,他們的精神如何影響現在的人類;例如,以當代藝術而言,杜象可說是二十世紀最具影響力的存在。透過一種中西文化對話的方式,藝術家嘗試結合臺灣對於鬼魂的詮釋和傳統信仰,以及西方解構主義哲學家德希達提出的「幽靈學」,探討逝去的人們雖已離去,但他們留下的思想如同過往的鬼魂持續影響著現在。作品包含攝影、影像及裝置作品,從歷史與社會文化的角度,雙重探索精神信仰及真實世界。

Given: The Haunting Ghost

Inspired by the annual exhibition Kau-Puê during his artist-in-residency in Soulangh Cultural Park, Kay Walkowiak tries asking how ghosts in the past influence today’s human beings by their spirits. For example, when it comes to modern art, Marcel Duchamp is considered one of the most influential artists in the Twentieth Century. Striking up a conversation between Chinese and Western cultures, Kay Walkowiak attempts to combine traditional Taiwanese beliefs and interpretations on ghosts with deconstructionist Jacques Derrida’s concept “hauntology,” exploring how the ideas of the dead, just like ghosts in the past, keep influencing the present in spite of their absence. His work includes photos, videos, and installations, delving into the spiritual beliefs and the real world from historical and sociocultural aspects.
