❖創作論述 Art Statement

下西 進
我這位在德國生活的人意識到,亞洲城市的夜晚是明亮的。因為有許多商店和餐館在午夜才正開始營業,所以刺眼的夜晚在亞洲大城市中是常見的,尤其是台灣檳榔攤這樣具有特殊氣氛的商店。我來到這些檳榔店,打扮得像個被稱為「檳榔西施」的賣檳榔的女孩,並在這些商店拍下一張照片。因此,這些女性的照片其實是我自己的肖像。

在這次進駐期間,我理解了台灣檳榔文化的背景。20世紀90年代後期以來,檳榔在台灣成為繼稻米之後的第二大銷售農作物。台灣的檳榔產業價值約1億美元,每年增長約14萬噸,雖然它一點也不算是文明產業,但它卻是一個巨大的產業。現在台灣正一直在面臨改變。接下來幾十年,檳榔女孩或許再也看不到。

這次在台南參與「微光」計劃,為回應「工業化」的總綱,我探訪並拍攝了幾戶以住家為營生場所的「家庭工廠」。我出生於1960年代末期,當然聽過「客廳即工廠」這個當年頗是響亮的口號。但出生於外島馬祖的我,卻從來沒能真正從生活的面向體驗過那個時代:正如我第一次親眼看到稻米,是小學畢業那年第一次來到台灣。而藉著這幾趟拍攝,我總算稍稍能夠從實際的層面體會到,同時藉由攝影,或許具體而微地呈現了,一個即將逝去的時代氛圍。

I who living in Germany realized that the nights in Asian cities are bright. Because there are lots of shops and restaurants are open in the midnight. The glare of the night are common in big cities in Asia, but especially Taiwan has special atmosphere by betel nut(檳榔)shops. I went to those betel nut shops, dressed like girls selling betel nut called “Betel nut girl(檳榔西施)” and pictured in those shops. Therefore these women's pictures are my self-portrait.

I could know the background of the culture for betel nut in Taiwan during my doing this project. Since the late 1990s, betel nuts became the second largest selling crop in Taiwan after rice. The betel nut industry in Taiwan is worth about $1 billion USD and grows about 140,000 tons per year. It's huge industry, while it's not civilized industry at all. Now Taiwan is changing. Next a few decade, betel nut girls may not be seen.


Chen, Chin-Pao
In June 2013, I started the photography project, ‘Ordinary Household’, which is a series of photos taken by the staged photography. I staged at the house of the photographed family, and photograph the family activities. The idea is to represent the different aspects of interior daily life of Taiwanese family at the moment. I choose the triptych as the form to extend horizontal images and the space. In these three spaces, sitters may appear more than once in the picture with different dress to hint the movement of time. In these photos, all sitters do not look at the camera/the spectator neither) in order to pretend the absence of camera.

For participating the Twilight Project in Tainan, I follow the program of ‘Industrialization’ of the project, and visit some families/factories that work for subcontract works in their house. Of course I heard before the well-known slogan, ‘the salon is the factory’ , in the epoch that I was born in late 1960s. But as I was born in the surrounding Islands, Matsu, I have never had the life experience of that epoch. I remember clearly that I have not seen paddy until my graduation of elementary school, my very first trip to Taiwan. And I finally realize that we could actual represent precisely a particular atmosphere of passed epoch by the photography after this participation of Twilight Project.
