SCM MFA Graduation and Student Show 2022「混沌樂園」

MFA Graduation and Student Show 2022 - The Waste Land

香港城市大學邵逸夫創意媒體中心

“These fragments I have shored against my ruins.” - T.S. Elliot.

The Waste Land was first transformed as a playground by a landscape architect, Carl Theodor Sørensen, having noticed children playing in destroyed areas and construction sites after WWII. By engaging with waste materials, children could experiment, innovate and create. In T.S Eliot’s poem, The Waste Land encapsulates a barren and inhabitable space, while lying beneath a thick layer of snow, roots begin to grow. In the neglected corner, hope resides.

The Waste Land is an exhibition structured by pieces, as the worlding of Elliot’s poem, it is composed of diverse voices from various perspectives. Emerging artists from MFA Creative Media respond uniquely to our current world, experimenting in the chaotic playground.

Fragments from observation, reflection, and creation are pieced together into multimedium assemblages to investigate and challenge what is perceived as waste and what has been wasted. Entangled perspectives are narrated through interdisciplinary approaches across technological and organic mediums, to reveal bodily experience through human standpoints and beyond.

In The Waste Land, artworks transform the withered into nourished soil. We offer the decomposed and recomposed substances distilled from the edge of change. Through playing with pieces, connecting parts, and reconstructing fragments, we present the regenerative power of life to shape a new world.

「這些片斷我用來支撐我的斷垣殘壁。」 —— T.S 艾略特(趙蘿蕤譯)

荒原成為樂園的可能性,最初來自景觀設計師卡爾·特奧多爾·蘇連遜。他曾目睹二戰後孩子們在斷壁殘垣中奔跑嬉鬧的場景,觀察孩童在廢棄景觀之中暢遊,於破碎之中探索、創新,並構建出嶄新天地。荒原,亦被T.S 艾略特以詩句解構,貧瘠淒涼,了無生機。然而,白雪皚皚之下,根莖萌動。被遺忘的角落裡,希望憩息。我們稱之為「混沌樂園」。

《混沌樂園》是由段落組成的展覽。不同角落發出的聲音,譜寫成詩,一如艾略特用字句解構世界。創意媒體學院MFA的新秀藝術家們,以獨特視角回應當下。於混沌之中,實驗並體驗著,構築樂園。

碎片通過觀察、反思、與創作,被編織成為新的語句,在多媒體語法之下訴說著。重拾那些曾被標記為「廢物」或已被「浪費」的事物,試圖在審視中超越。眾多視角,盤根錯節,以跨學科的研究方式糅合科技與生物媒介,吐露切身經驗與超越人類立場的領悟。

藝術作品於《混沌樂園》之中,將枯枝敗葉轉化成為肥沃土壤。在轉變的黎明,我們獻上那些被分解的,與再演繹的。重拾,連接,遊戲,構建。我們以此呈現生命源源不絕的再生力量,由此譜下新的篇章。
