本次展覽為非常廟藝文空間(以下簡稱VT)與德國藝術公寓(Apartment Of Art)三年計劃之一。兩年前VT與德國藝術公寓總監-拉斯科樸索(Lars Koepsel)為推廣台灣及德國兩地藝術家與藝術空間之間的交流,締訂為期三年合作計畫。兩地空間每年交換合作藝術家展覽、策展人、藝術家駐村等三階段合作方式。本次展覽檔期為計畫中的第二年,本次由德國藝術公寓總監-拉斯科樸索推薦新媒體藝術團隊「M+M」首度來台展出。

德國「M+M」為Marc Weis 和 Martin De Mattia 兩人所組成的新媒體科技藝術團隊,M+M多年來持續於國際間進行展演計畫。過去重要展覽節錄:1999年在義大利羅馬的Villa Massimo進行為期一年的駐村計畫,同年於威尼斯雙年展「義大利國家館」展出。2003年於ZKM卡爾斯魯厄藝術與媒體中心展出,2006年參加Lintz科技藝術節以及2015於盧森堡casino個展。

「M+M」兩位藝術家長期關注媒體中所產生的語彙,並分析影像媒體之間的運作,結合大眾社會對於影像媒體的交互機制,透過電影中畫面擷取並使用非線性的敘事方式,將虛構與現實的影像內容混合處理,作品內容帶有強烈情感,如恐懼、仇恨、愛情等,並透過虛實間的差異成為新的敘事方式。

本次將於VT展出系列作品「7 Tage」中兩件新作《Dienstag (Tuesday)》&《Freitag (Friday》,兩位藝術家挑選兩部經典電影-理髮師的男人(The hairdresser’s husband)與黑影(Tenebre)作為本次創作素材,作品影像中運用電影畫面對應一週的七天,並運用電影裡擷取部分畫面拼湊成每一天的生活景象,兩位藝術家各自將自行剪輯的影像運用雙投影同步裝置將兩影像並置,在大多數情況下,觀者將會看到這兩位藝術家都不約而同的就其類似情感內容做出對應畫面,細膩的處理家庭、人際關係以及生活中不確定性及矛盾狀態,擺盪在兩個非線性影像原件和翻拍之間的矛盾對抗。而本展中另外一件作品《kurz vor fünf (shortly before five)》則是將自2001年以來「7 Tage」系列中出現的電影場景運用電腦運算重新將影格輸出成290幀於平面畫面中,透過影像運算將3分多鐘影像畫面獨立,觀眾將可以發現運算過後的場景照片故事都在同一天的同一時間地點,透過運算影像畫面將可以看到不同的時間影像畫面聚落成同一影像,讓觀者重新於平面畫面重新審視影像中孤獨個體的趣味。

「7 Tage」系列作品自2009年來,逐段完成每段錄像影片,並於2015年發表了最新兩部新作《Dienstag (Tuesday)》&《Freitag (Friday》。本系列影像之中,除了相同的其他演員重複出現外,來自奧地利的演員Christoph Luser以精湛的演技表現出憂鬱詭譎的情緒變化,而體現了主角矛盾的異型建構的心理,投射非常輕微情緒以及揭示了人際關係中裂縫和固有的矛盾變化,無論是任何威脅與衝突的情緒反應,將在看似平靜的畫面帶來暗潮洶湧般相互作用。

This exhibition is from one of the 3-year program between VT Artsalon(VT) and Apartment Of Art from German. VT and the director of Apartment of Art -Lars Koepsel have signed the contract for a “3-year program“ 2 years ago. The program is aim to promote the exchange in artist and art space between Taiwan and German. Each space will corporate in 3 stages every year, from exchanging the artist exhibition, curator to artist residency program. This exhibition is now in the 2nd-year. It was the director of Apartment of Art -Lars Koepsel, who recommended to exhibit the new media art group, named ”M+M” as their very first show in Taiwan.

Marc Weis and Martin De Mattia are a digital artists group named “M+M”, which use the new media in their project, from German. M+M has various international exhibition experience , which includes: the one-year residency program in Villa Massimo, Rome, Italy, back in 1999 and exhibited their work in Venice Biennale in the same year. They have also exhibited at ZKM in 2003 and participated the Ars Electronica Lintz in 2006. Their latest exhibition was at Casino, Luxembourg.

“M+M” have been focusing on the vocabulary produced from the media work, and analyze the operation between image media. They combined the public social consume system, and use non-way to describe things. They used film making skills such as camera movements and cuts to mix-up the fictional and the realistic image content. And also find out the new way to describe things through the difference between the fiction and reality.

”M+M” will be exhibit their new works in “7 Tage” (7 Days)series, which are 《Dienstag (Tuesday)》and《Freitag (Friday) 》. The artists picked two classic movie, includes《The hairdresser’s husband》and《Tenebre》as the elements. They named their works as“7 Tage” (7 Days), and make the image in their works able to correspond in 7 days a week. They have also excerpt some of the classic scenes from the epic movie as the everyday life in their works. From the artists remakes, cuts and the main actor’s view and mind changing from time to time; audience will get the new visual experience to re-conduct with the double projection device. The viewer will also find out the against between two non-linear original videos and conversion with the double channel device. And the other works named《kurz vor fünf (shortly before five)》in this exhibition have combined the movie scene and the computer operations and re-export the file fragmentation into 290 as a 2D picture. With the computer operations, they separated every scene in three minutes, which audience will find out the picture and the story are all at the same place and the same time in everyday. By gathering the video scene into on image, the viewers will discover the fun part in the isolation.

They have been shooting the ”7 Tage” series works for 7 years from 2009, and have also released the latest new works in recent, named 《Dienstag (Tuesday)》&《Freitag (Friday). The audience will get to see some of the actors repeatedly and the actor from Austria -Christoph Luse’s excellent performance skill, which he interpreted and showed the sad and odd emotional changes to incarnate the main character’s inconsistent mind structure. Whether is any threat or conflict emotion response, will all brings the audience the unexpected plot.
