Incurable Nostalgia I不癒之境

This project is part of “Incurable Nostalgia” solo exhibition created during the artist residency at the 18th Street Art Center 此計畫是於18街藝術中心駐村期間完成,並為「不癒之境」個展的一部分

Incurable Nostalgia is a two-channel video project documenting a site-specific performative drawing where the artist superimposed her childhood home kitchen at her current home/studio. This project intends to express the longing for the home that no longer exists and how it reflects the collective grief and mourning for the impossibility of this mythical return under the current pandemic era. The video juxtaposes the drawing and erasing processes, past and present, ghostly memory, and everyday life to represent the gesture of adaptation to a new environment and new normal.

Watch「Incurable Nostalgia」

「不癒之境」是一個雙頻道的視頻作品,結合表演和繪畫元素的現地創作。作品內容是將再也無法返回的老家廚房影像,投影在駐村期間的工作室的廚房牆面上,再藉由素描的方式將細節描繪,試圖並置過去與現在、記憶與現實。並反映疫情下,共同悼念那些回不去的日常,所經歷的集體性創傷。透過雙頻道的方式呈現,將「繪製」和「擦去」廚房影像的過程並置,意圖表達告別過去、和適應新環境的心境與過程。
