周東彥十年創作個展

Chou, Tung-Yen Solo Exhibition

回首凝視一格格的光流格影,影像因光而留下,又因光,再被看見。一格格的連續播放,究竟留住什麼?但願這些曾經發亮的世界,再度共聚一堂,訴說,在每格早已不止24格的世界裡。

 

回顧周東彥的創作歷程,不論是短片或結合劇場的影像、裝置作品,其實都不脫渴望呈現出一種具體而微、同時將極微變得極大的內在世界。企圖透過影像穿透有形的現實空間、劇場黑盒子,連結幽微且浩瀚的心理風景。 

 

不同於其他數位藝術創作者多是來自美術或電影背景,周東彥以劇場做起始點再踏上影像與跨界探索之路。或許正因如此,他作品中的Frame──有時是劇場的鏡框,有時是電影院裡的銀幕邊緣,有時是刻意在畫面中又放了更多窗格,也有些時候,是美術館中的分割螢幕──在在呈現出不同於裝置作品的視覺性,而又蘊含了相異於電影作品的敘事性。

 

「光流格影」以三大主題綜剖跨界創作者周東彥近十年來在劇場和影像結合的探索。囊括甫獲得世界劇場設計大展(World Stage Design 2013)大獎作品《空的記憶》之表演影像裝置,和三支多次入圍國際影展之實驗短片;並立體呈現於留學歸國後數件擔任戲劇/舞蹈/音樂會之劇場影像設計作品。

 

 

 

When we review Chou Tung-Yen’s experience of creation, we find that his works, whether they are short films, images combined with theaters, or installations, express his desire for demonstrating an inner world that is small but complete and simultaneously turns the minimum to the maximum. By utilizing images, Chou seeks to penetrate tangible spaces and theatrical black boxes in the real world, and thereby shapes subtle and immense psychological landscapes.

 

Unlike most digital artists whose backgrounds are in fine arts or film arts, Chou embarked on his exploration of images and interdisciplinary possibilities by treating theater as the point of departure. Perhaps his background distinguishes his works from those of others. The frames alternately appearing in this exhibition include mirror frames of a theater, the screen frame of a movie theater, many deliberately arranged window frames, and segmented scenes of a museum. Accordingly, this exhibition presents the visual effect different from that of installations and contains the narrativity different from that of movies.

 

The exhibition “Lights Flowing Out of Frames” demonstrates the results of Chou’s exploration of combining theater with image over the last decade in three genres of his works, including the video installation《Emptied Memories》that won the top prize in Interactive and New Media Design at the World Stage Design2013, three experimental short films nominated many times by international film festivals, and several pieces of image design on theater, dance, and concert that he participated after he finished his study abroad.
