Performance– Luminous Shadow

Performance is postponed. Sorry everyone stay safe.

Year 2020, come April, I will be part of a conceptual performance in Taipei, “Luminous Shadow 浮光流影” with two other artists. A new experience, still much to prepare. https://npac-ntch.org/zh/festivals/TIFA/2020/events/program/details/13

2020 TIFA Luminous Shadow / 王佩瑤「浮光流影」音樂會

Memories Flowing from the Novel, Turning Time into A Sonata.
Memory can be luminous so as to cast shadows in time. Certain memories in life are so profound that they need to be slowly brewed and carefully tasted, similar to the process how literature is penned, music is composed, or photography is developed.

Inspired by the bestselling novel The Stolen Bicycle written by WU Ming-yi, pianist WANG Pei-yao seeks to explore a new dimension of literature and music through the complexity of life itself. Musicians WANG Pei-yao, William Wei, laureate of the Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition, and Victor Coo, the Filipino-Chinese cellist, perform pieces by the Eastern European composers Janáček, Ligeti, Enescu, and Kodály. Some of the pieces were based on rural folk songs collected by the composers, which then inspired them to produce compositions of their own. This process is akin to the way readers experience different dialects phonically throughout the novel. The music reflects the elaborate setup of the novel to evoke the audience’s deep hidden emotions. Jeffrey Lim, the Malaysian photographer, joins forces with the musical troupe in performance. He will transfigure the music into images for recollection, thereby allowing the stories to live on in the memory.

記憶自小說流出, 把時間走成一首樂曲。
記憶是明亮的,才能在時光中投下陰影。生命中有某些記憶太深刻,必須慢慢醞釀、仔細品味,就像是寫作、作曲或是沖洗照片的過程。

受吳明益暢銷小說《單車失竊記》啟發,鋼琴家王佩瑤將盤根錯節的生命軸線中的「記憶」化成音符,尋覓文學與音樂的全新面貌。王佩瑤、伊莉莎白女王國際音樂大賽優勝得主魏靖儀、菲律賓華裔大提琴家高炳坤等音樂家,聯手演奏東歐作曲家楊納傑克、李蓋蒂、埃內斯庫、高大宜等人的作品。部份作品的靈感來自於這些作曲家蒐集到的鄉間民謠,據以創作出他們自己的曲子。這個過程類似讀者體驗小說中不同方言的發音。音樂反映出小說中的精心設計,觸動深藏在聽眾內心的情感。馬來西亞攝影藝術家林猷進也共襄盛舉此計劃,將音樂轉化成回憶的影像,讓故事繼續活在記憶中。

Feature artist– NTCH TIFA 2020

I mainly only make portraits, so here are the few very rare landscapes from Malaysia. I've spent the last three week in Taiwan to make some landscapes. Hopefully to be published soon too.

If you're in Taipei in April, do come and catch the concert #luminousshadow浮光流影 performance between musician, writer and photographer

國家兩廳院 NTCH, Taipei
★ 點圖欣賞攝影藝術家Jeffrey線上微型攝影展
★ 特別企劃:給王佩瑤「浮光流影」音樂會觀眾的一封情書
音樂會開始時攝影藝術家林猷進Jeffrey Lim會啟動箱式、風箱式、阿富汗等不同種類的相機,紀錄音樂會的片段。所拍的影像為當天與觀眾的共同記憶,看似相同的照片,卻是在場每個人各自擁有的獨特體驗。

音樂會後Jeffrey會一張張手工沖洗黑白照片,作家吳明益也會特別為本次音樂會寫一封信,我們將做成一份珍貴的私房禮,限定給本場音樂會觀眾。音樂會後一個月,再請您憑票根回到兩廳院領取。這段等待的時間,亦呼應了「浮光流影」的企劃精神:時間如流影,記憶若浮光。人生有一種深刻,需要慢慢醞釀,細細品嘗──如文字推砌、如樂音流瀉,或一張經曝光與沖洗而浮現的影像。
 
當記憶逐漸被遺忘時,藉由這份私房禮,希望讓您重新回想起這段時光─你我之間的「此時此刻」,更能深刻體會模糊的影象與鮮明的記憶之間,產生的追逐與矛盾。這時候才算是音樂會真正的結束。

*詳細領取時間及流程,將於2020年4月公布
攝影藝術家│林猷進(Jeffrey)
馬來西亞藝術家林猷進出生於1978年,他的創作探討攝影的形式、都市調查,以及社會地景的測繪計劃。他的興趣位於認同與文化傳承的交界,並採取運用圖像、現成物、空間、互動的觀念呈現形式。他有許多作品探討觸及社群建築與空間;包含2014年眾籌募資的〈單車地圖計劃〉、2016年的都市報告〈ISD計劃〉、2017年的〈Attachment〉參與式和表演裝置,以及2012年迄今的一系〈Kanta〉人像攝影研究計劃。
