Project description

There is always a child living inside our minds. The child could be named as Émile or Sophie by Rousseau. This child has co-existed with us eternally and gazed back to our hearts at all times.

How do we define grow up? Or we have never grown older? As time fleeting away, humans are escaping from prison endlessly and being discarnate simultaneously. We left the self behind as a “discarnate man”. According to McLuhan, the discarnate man was a human being who still processes his bodies in the physical world, however, the self or identity could be present in other phantom electronic places. We unconsciously discard the self in an invisible and unceasing term of growing up.

Thought the impact of globalization and digital informatics, we are unable to clearly define the meaning of growing up. The only thing we know is that we have an unconscious physical body at the moment.

We are destined to born in a certain place with certain skin colors and speak a certain language. Somehow we start to abandon our own roots and turn to implant other mainstream culture. The childhood talk with the mother is similar to have a talk to the self. The native language bear with a pure mind is no longer precious nowadays. Will you still please listing to me when I share a story of childhood with my own language?

“L'Enfant” invites the audience steps into a conceal world build-up by artists. The performance involves techniques of the drone with a camera to detect and capture the scene and the audience’s reaction. The recorded image will project on the screen in the interactive approach through programming design. It’s a journey started from childhood memories. The environment creates by drones and installations impose pressure on the audience. The faces of the audience left alone on the screen that carries tolerance and compassion toward reality. The world has expected a beautiful future. Although the future we are living in isn’t perfect. We are still making an effort to as forward-looking.

演出簡介

我們心中都有一位孩子,他可能叫作「愛彌兒(Émile)」,她可能叫作「蘇菲sophie」,他永遠都存在,並且與我們隨時凝視。

   

如何定義長大?或者人從來沒有長大?只有永遠在進行逃獄,如同隨時隨地的「脫殼」,並且把原本的那個自我,永遠的留在原地,這個現象如同麥克魯漢提及的數位現象「脫殼之人」,肉身也許在,那但靈魂卻在另一個彼方。如同人在成長中進行無意識的脫殼,而這脫殼是不間斷且無形的。人們透過全球化、資訊化沖刷後,我們無法定義長大,只能知道有著無意識的身體,留在那個時刻。我們誕生在某個地區,擁有某種膚色,說著某種語言,選擇拋棄掉原本的能力,而學習其他主流或是官方的語言,孩童時期和母親的對話如同和自我的對話,而那些擁有最純淨歲月的母語現今似乎也變的不再重要,如果擁有了大人軀殼的我用我的母語,說一段兒時的過往,你還會願意傾聽嗎?

   

《孩子》邀請觀眾進入藝術家所建構的封閉世界,從傾聽一段兒時回憶開始旅程,演出中將運用飛行器結合追蹤攝影,擷取的觀眾的影像做即時投影,透過程式設計運算達到影像之間的即時互動。透過飛行器與互動裝置,強烈的感受環境所產生的壓迫,最後,停留在螢幕上一個個孤單的面孔,也乘載觀者對現實生活的包容與憐憫。我們曾期許一個美好的未來,雖然現實中的未來並不完美,但我們仍舊努力地向前。
