【展览预告 | Upcoming Exhibition】

提到无用,一般会令人联想起庄子思想的「无用之用」,在其思想中,无用乃大用,任何看似没有用处之事物,仍然有其价值存在的可能,甚至成为保全生命的一种途径。然而随着时代的进步,许多事物在日新月异下,即便其仍保有具体或抽象、有形或无形的「功能」,也时常渐渐地被搁置甚或淘汰,而我们并无法确切地界定出这些「无用」的准则,这关乎于每个人的价值观与对该事物的情感连结,在这种日常的「忽视」下,我们又该如何「正视」这种日常呢?

「无用地」作为一个单词,可以被定义为形容一个不被使用的场域,用来指涉不被利用的土地场所、身份位置或是内在感受,但同时,它也能以副词的方式去表达某种动作和状态,艺术家的创作就如「无用地」后所接上的动词、形容词,它们用各种姿态、表情、意念或行为,在物品或环境失去功用之后,以新的面向观看这些日常的无用。展览「无用地」不强调无用物的可用处,而是呈现、讨论无用物当下或未来的处境(存在的状态),探索这些东西究竟是用何种「被观看」的方式存在于我们周遭。

此次联展邀请艺术家林厚成、陈颖亭、龚绢茹,分别以摄影、对象、绘画呈现不同的无用处境,藉此产生各种面向与形式之对话,提供观者多元的思考空间。

When speaking of uselessness, it will usually allow Chuang Zhou's idea "the use of uselessness" come to one's mind. This idea brings to thought that something useless might still be useful, and any seemingly useless thing still has the possibility for existence and even a way in life. However, with the progress of times, many things are constantly being put aside or even eliminated, whether kept in whole or in abstract, tangible or intangible function. We cannot define these things as "useless" because this is related to the emotional connection between each person's values and the object. With this daily "neglecting", how should we "face" this?

"Useless" as a word can be defined to describe a field that is not used, to refer to the place, identity, or inner feelings that are not being used, but at the same time it can be used as an adverb to express a certain action or state. Just like the artist's creation is a combination of "uselessly" used adverbs, adjectives and a variety of gestures, expressions, ideas or behavior that lose function on the object or in the environment to use a whole new way to observe this "uselessness." The exhibition "Useless" does not emphasize the usefulness of useless things, but presents and discusses the present and future state (the state of existence) of these useless objects, exploring how these things exist being "viewed" in our way.

The exhibition invited artists Hoho Lin, Ying-ting Chen, and Jiuann-ru Gong, who use photography, objects, painting, respectively to present a different useless situation and produce a variety of dialogue with these forms, to provide the viewer with an unlimited space to think.
