▍尋人啟示
找尋。她問向南風時
六月七號的下午,新浜碼頭藝術空間裡舉辦了一場關於南方以及策展的講座。其中一位女孩,馬尾綁的扎扎實實,在講座Q&A時舉了手,說:「這邊討論的兩個『南方』,對我來說,都並不遙遠。」
而她所說的兩個南方,指的是什麼呢?
當時討論的是,南方是被誰、被哪裡定義出來的,這個中心點的定位將決定我們如何思考南方。
就如我們這一台灣島嶼,在1895年甲午戰爭後成為日本「南進政策」的第一個跳島,台灣在日本人的想象裡,是如何地被熱帶風情化。另,1989年台灣第一次「新南向政策後」,東南亞人合法於台灣工作及婚嫁,而至今當東南亞一詞映入我們眼簾時,我們是能脫離熱帶南洋的風土情趣想像呢?
那位綁著馬尾的女孩,當天是怎麼說這兩個「南方」與她自身關係的?
「我的奶奶是在皇民化教育下長大的,經歷過二戰,媽媽是東南亞來的新住民!」她堅定地這樣說著。
只是在當天講座後,我們就再也沒找著這位女孩。
因此,我們以上述討論的南方及女孩的背景,虛構了一名女性新住民二代的房間,並以此房間作為日本統治下的台灣與印尼新住民之間的軸心,來探討這兩大不同背景時空的女性,在北半球大歷史的帝國、戰爭、殖民等歷史處境中,女性話語之幽微之處。
〈穿越南方,彷彿看見你。〉為藝術家侯儀芬再經過家族史的爬梳後,利用藍曬、轉印,製作手工小書等,抽象地再構築了台灣女性在日本時代的生活。
藝術家彭美綺的創作,主要以「非母語的溝通」,呈現自己在和印尼在台工作者訪談的隔閡狀況,同時也表現出現今大多數台灣人與東南亞人交流上的疏離感。
展覽期間,我們也希望這間房間可以幫我們找尋到那一位新二代。如果就是你,歡迎你直接跟櫃檯說,因為你的出現讓我們提醒了自己,在複雜的歷史情結中,能如何感受自己的文化及認同。
而你,又是怎麼思考這些的呢?快出現吧,來跟我們說說!

2020新樂園Emerge 新秀策展人培力 徵件計畫 將邁入第十一屆,歷年通過評選的藝術作品,皆具有濃厚的實驗性質,並具有跨域的精神與內容,而 #新樂園藝術空間 也持續努力的保有「替代空間」的本質,為這些「非主流」創作者提供一個開放、多元的平台。2020 年將擴展這樣的精神,從臺北延伸至全台,招集了高雄、花蓮等地的替代空間,串連起各方資源,成為全台一同發聲的「藝術策展新秀計畫」方式進行,透過工作坊、座談會、田野調查的訓練的方式,結合在地精神的方式,以議題切入和對話、開啟更多與社會連結的窗口,仰仗各空間的獨立精神,並期待在未來能成為兩年一度不只是展覽,更是更多交流與學習的藝術活動。

Search Notice
In the afternoon on June 7th, there was a lecture about the South and curating in SinPinPier Absolutely Art Space. During the Q&A session, one girl, with a firmly-tied ponytail, raised her hand and said: “The two ‘Souths’ discussed here are not far away to me.”
What did she mean by the two "Souths"?
At that time, what we discussed is how and by whom the term “South” is defined. The positioning of the definition will determine how we think about the South.
Taiwan, as an island, had become the first outpost of the Japan’s “Southern Expansion Doctrine” after the First Sino-Japanese War in 1985, and in the imagination of Japanese, Taiwan became a place full of tropical style. In addition, after Taiwan’s first "New Southbound Policy” in 1989, Southeast Asians could legally work and get married in Taiwan. Therefore, how can we get rid of the tropical-south-ocean imagination when the term “Southeast Asia” comes to our mind?
How did the girl with a ponytail talk about the relationship between the two “Souths” and herself?
“My grandma was raised under the Japanization education and lived through WWII. My mom is a new inhabitant from Southeast Asia,” she said firmly.
But we never meet that girl again after the lecture.
Therefore, based on the background of the South and the girl discussed above, we created a room of a woman, who is the child of a new inhabitant. The room, as the center between Taiwan under Japan's rule and new inhabitants from Indonesia, is used to look into the subtle of those different women’s discourse in the historical situation of empires, wars, and colonies in the Northern Hemisphere.
〈I seem to see you crossing the south〉was created by the artist, Yi-Feng Hou, after a rearrangement of her family history. She abstractly reconstructed the life of Taiwanese women in the Japanese Occupation Period by using cyanotype, transfer, and handmade chapbooks.
Artist Mei-Chi Peng mainly uses "non-native communication" in her creations to present the gap between she and Indonesian workers in the interview. Meanwhile, it also expresses the feeling of alienation between Taiwanese and Southeast Asians.
During the exhibition, we also hope that this room can help us to find the girl who is the second generation of new inhabitants. If it is you, you are welcome to inform the reception directly. Because of your appearance, we reminded ourselves that how we can feel our own culture and identity in this complicated historical complex.
And how do you think about this? Show up anon, come and talk to us!

Seeking, as she asked about the “South.”
