見地— 不能替代的替代空間Sights/ Sites: Unreplaceable Alternative Space「一件作品最重要的並非它的意涵,而是它的作為,以及它之所誘發。」..........李歐塔

以「見地」為名,一方面強調提出高見(sight),另一方面則著重於地方基地(site)特質的顯現。替代空間的生成(becoming)並非複製單一種類似的樣態,每個發展體在台灣的土地上,總以其特殊化的在地精神、文化特質與空間習性,孵化出的多元變形蟲。「見地」一詞,作為思想觀點建立的起始,以提出獨特的觀點為方向,探討創作者個人(private)在面對社會環境、全球化、教育體系等大框架下,如何回應並提出私人式理解,而以這種小敘事(little narrative)作為一種面對高度同質性的政治正確藝術發展的對抗。在此,私人姿態並非傾向喃喃自語的內心小劇場,而是面對甜美流行與左派洪流的消化與反思,並能提出異質性的個人見解。此外,「見地」也指稱看到「地方性」(locality)所強調的部份,也不僅是因為地點(place)差異所造成地貌環境外在必然的不同,「地方」在此作為包含共同記憶與連結的基地概念,綜合了集體性的區域認同。如何能深化這種集體記憶與意識,在消化與咀嚼後,不再以某種文化符號拼貼簡易的被再生產,而是真正與地方所長存的共同經驗凝結出的思想與感性結晶體。


替代空間(alternative space)不是被中心論述主宰而被排斥的邊緣(edge),其所代表的精神是場域空間的實驗與實踐自我的相信,其不為頌揚同質性的準則所存在,不依附在大多數所認同的正確,不妥協於教條地指指點點,而是以創作慾望做為對抗現實的利器,作為與主流的分歧。替代空間所呈現的姿態,不僅作為一種區別於流行性藝術的發展面向,其整體發展也作為介入社會與藝術的方式。這樣的介入並不是企圖建立另一個更有效的真理,換言之,替代,不是為了取代(replace)其他空間,替代二字其所代表的是另一種異質性的關注顯現,作為一種差異的樣態,不同性質發聲的補綴(patchwork),期待其他相信者的一起發聲,彼此未必有所共識,但,其主要所企求的面相還在於特殊性的被發掘與被看見的可能,一起以相信、想像與理想在一條破浪的高峰點上,盡量保持著某種絕對性地平衡。

Sights/Sites: Irreplaceable Alternative Space
“What is most important in a piece of work is not its meaning but what it does and what it induces.” - Jean-François Lyotard


The name “Sights/Sites,” as a pun on “insight” in Chinese, holds two meanings. One emphasizes the offering of one’s opinion, or “sight,” whereas the other stresses the appearances of a site’s characteristics. The “becoming” of an alternative space is not merely the copying of a single pattern. Rather, each developing body in Taiwan has its unique local spirit, cultural characteristics, and spatial habits, from which diverse amoebae are born. The phrase “Sights/Sites” served as a starting point to establish thought and perspectives. By proposing unique viewpoints as the direction, this exhibition investigated how the creators responded to the larger frame of the social environment, globalization, and education system and proposed their private understanding. The exhibition utilized little narratives to fight against the development of arts that are politically correct but highly homogeneous. Here, the private stance is not an inner drama filled with murmurs but a heterogeneous, private perspective proposed after digestion and reflection on saccharine fashion and left-wing trends. In addition, “Sights/Sites” also emphasizes locality, which is not only the differences in geographical environments that are the unavoidable results of location differences but also the concept of a site that contains mutual memories and connections. The output is not a simple reproduction of placing certain cultural symbols together to compose mosaics. Instead, they are thoughts and sensitivities being digested and crystallized, becoming shared experiences that coexist with the place.

A Platform of Variability

“Sights/Sites” is an exhibition where thoughts are consolidated and places are encountered. This title is not a rigid frame that has been designed, awaiting corresponding items that fit the vacancies. Rather, “Sights/Sites” would like to generate discussion and gather thoughts that, instead of being focused, can be wanton and aimless. “Sights/Sites” could be an elastic frame, a platform that is continuously developing, to replace the spatial realm and use the historical context and future of the realm as inspirations to compose a spatial and temporal timeline of its components (the past), of its viewers and participants (the present), and of the talents who are about to join (the future.) The timeline lies along the north–south spatial axis and projects the imagination of an irreplaceable alternative place, breaking the circle of trust and orders in one single area, creating a new virtuous cycle through the mutual nourishing of geographical and spatial realms. As an exhibition, “Sights/Sites” also sows seeds in the art world, providing an opportunity for young creators who are still in the stage of transformation or who have not yet formed their own shapes, giving them voice and strengthening their self-belief.

An Irreplaceable Alternative

An alternative space is not the edge that has been shunned by the central, dominant discourses; rather, the spirit it represents is the belief in experimenting with the spatial realm and actualizing the self. It does not exist to praise the principles of homogeneity, does not attach to that which the majority consider correct, and does not submit to dogmatic principles. On the contrary, it is a sharp weapon that fights against reality and deviates from the mainstream on the basis of the desire to create. The stance presented by the alternative space is not only a developmental dimension separated from the popular arts; its overall development also intervenes in the society and arts. This intervention is not an attempt to construct a more effective truth; an alternative is not meant to replace other spaces. An alternative represents the focus on heterogeneity. It is a different pattern, a patchwork that gives voice to different characteristics. It hopes to raise its voice with other believers despite the fact that they may not share a consensus. Its main pursuit is for its uniqueness to be discovered and be seen. With belief, imagination, and ideals, it is on the summit of the waves, trying to maintain an absolute balance.
