銅鐘藝術賞《熊貓、鹿、馬來貘與東印度公司-許家維個展》


Hsu Chia-Wei’s Solo Exhibition

2019.04.27 -2019.06.23 
 


將影像視為開啟反思過去的介面,許家維經常從一個地點出發,以微觀的敘事考掘歷史,將不同元素跨域連結。2008年許家維拍攝作品《和平島故事》之後,意外地發現當初拍攝的造船廠下方,即為17世紀的北荷蘭城,於是興起對荷蘭東印度公司複雜網絡的探索,並組織從和平島延伸至亞洲殖民時代相關事件的行動路徑。

 

本展在此脈絡下,以動物為線索,透過對熊貓、馬來貘與鹿三種動物在全球歷史與政經脈絡上的梳理,一窺這些看似毫無關連的動物,如何參與建構、形塑另類的東亞網絡。從動物觀賞、保育、利用,乃至動物外交、動物貿易,牽引出近代台灣、中國、新加坡、柬埔寨、及日本之間千絲萬縷的關係。而其中,作為世界第一個股份有限公司的荷蘭東印度公司位居關鍵角色,透過「以物易物」形式,開展出17世紀以降亞洲沿海地區間的殖民貿易網絡,同時也預示了今日全球化的雛形。許家維的影像以電腦桌面、多重視窗的切換、點選、放大縮小,穿插漫才、導覽解說、演說等多元表演形式,以詼諧的敘事遊走於起政治、歷史、動物等人與非人之間,挪用今日數位時代物件智慧串連的物聯網概念,重探殖民時代另一種「以物易物」的物聯網,創造出當代的連結。

 

In treating images as a medium for reflecting upon the past, Hsu Chia-Wei often sets out from a single place, connecting diverse and multidisciplinary elements through a microscopic narrative of history. After shooting his Heping Island Story series in 2008, Hsu unexpectedly discovered that below the shipyard where he shot was a 17th century Dutch settlement. Thus began his exploration of the intricate network that was the Dutch East India Company, leading from Heping Island to other parts of Asia during colonial times.


The present exhibition uses animals as clues in this context, inspecting how pandas, Malayan tapirs and deer figure in global history and politico-economic narratives. Seemingly unrelated to one another, these animals nevertheless were instrumental in shaping a network in East Asia through their speculative purposes, conservation, utilization, and even animal diplomacy, crafting multiple strands of relationships between Taiwan, China, Singapore, Cambodia, and Japan. In all of this, as the world’s first company that publicly traded stocks, the Dutch East India Company used its crucial bartering network to forge colonial trading ties between the coastal regions of Asia, in a prophecy of the trend of globalization today. Conveyed through computer desktops, and switching and scaling between multiple windows, Hsu’s imagery is fused with traditional Japanese manzai comedy, narration, and speech in a jocular jaunt through politics, history, animals, and other human and non-human elements. In a nod to our digital internet, Hsu here explores an alternative, barter-based “Network of Things.”
