【 焦外:清邁與泰國深南的藝術現況 】Bokeh: Thai Contemporary Art in Chiang Mai and Deep South當談論起泰國,人們腦海裡浮起什麼樣的意象?特別是曼谷,映寫出一清晰而具象的文化場景,並作為我們對於泰國認識的基本模態,但那些落在焦點對象的輪廓之外,位處在散景迷濛中的地域,我們可曾好奇其中存在著什麼樣的人文景緻?又當代的藝術如何在此迥異的歷史文化樣態中去回應當前社會的衝擊、矛盾與遽變?此次由台北國際藝術村(TAV)與打開-當代藝術工作站(Open- Contemporary Art Center)合辦的「焦外:清邁與泰國深南的藝術現況」座談活動,以焦外(散景)為意象指涉中心之外的觀看途徑,邀請到泰籍策展人Penwadee Nophaket Manont分享近年她對泰國深南(Deep South,指泰國南部北大年、惹拉府、陶公府)此一地區文化與藝術的研究觀察;以及以清邁為據點創辦經營「清邁藝術對話空間」(Chiangmai Art Conversation- CAC)的藝術家Sutthirat Supaparinya分享介紹有關於清邁地區的藝術場景及當地的藝術家自營機構如何激活亞洲藝文網絡。同時,座談亦邀請到多年關注東南亞藝術與文化「數位荒原」主持人鄭文琦和「奧賽德工廠」廠長暨策展人高森信男與講者展開深入對談。我們誠摯地邀請您,一起穿越景深,進入這段焦外(散景)之處的泰國。

KANTA是一個攝影計劃,藝術家會打造可以立即沖印的暗箱照相。簡言之,它是一個餅乾盒大小的行動照相暗房。獨特之處在於它是通過化學作用形成的銀鹽感光照片。除了照相機以外,藝術家也發起一個人像攝影系列,他把這個計畫當成一種探索認同概念的方法,某種介於種族和文化之間,拼貼了(馬來西亞)族裔社會現實的民族建構概念之間交互作用。KANTA計劃目前正在探索東馬婆羅洲的鄉村社群。台灣則是這計劃進入下一階段的關鍵連結。藉著研究並理解人類學與民族性的相似性,並銜接馬來西亞與東南亞,期望它能形成計劃的「前文本」。藝術家將以自製相機展示成像過程,並希望能將簡報空間轉變為一個觀眾得以見證成像的暗房。

Set as a material conversation between Artist Run Initiatives (ARIs) and Aboriginal Art Centres in Australia and the Asia-Pacific, this project embodies and provokes conversations about place: How does place matter for artists? Why do ARIs exist in specific places? What is the place of practice?Writer Chris Kraus’s  radical localism points to the importance of the local places of art-making compared to global-centrism noting that ARIs create 'an opportunity to remain in one’s own community and assert an alternative ethos.
