『我想像自己伴和著旋律,迎著滿月,

站立在面對大海,炫麗四射的舞台車上。

海面上大片的熠熠發亮吸引了我的目光;

原來是海底的魚兒聽到我的歌聲,

紛紛露出水面,跟著我一起搖擺歌唱。』

 

此次展出的STAGE系列作品,主要含括2006-2014年間所拍攝,發明於1994年前後,其間歷經多次研發改進,目前仍普遍在台灣各地的綜藝團演出中使用,由大貨車所改裝而成的油壓式舞台車,於現實環境中開展的姿態。冀望其中獨特的產業類型與豐厚的文化信息,馳騁的發想與炫麗圖案,足以誘發觀者對於這項台灣特有的娛樂文化,含括時間、空間,橫向、縱向,平面及立體架構的連結與想像。

 

『隨著暮色漸入低垂,水田裏的波痕光影,

持續吸吮著夜色,愈發輝映舞台車上的飽滿綺麗。

那是蓄勢待發的太空梭﹖真實與幻境的錯置﹖

夢想與現實的距離﹖抑或只是午夜夢迴時的神遊囈語﹖

直到按壓快門前的那一刻,我仍無意分清。』

評論嘉言

沈昭良的《STAGE》系列是一個既達到了對於某種在地文化的「特異」事物的歸檔目標的作品,同時也是體現了以現成物來提示世界的複雜性與荒謬感的作者意圖的作品。沈昭良的工作,既是對於表演車這個現成物的歸類採集,也是一種文化意義上的圖像採集與現實考察。   

上海復旦大學新聞學院教授  顧錚

 

沈昭良的攝影作品,從事物的現象出發,卻逐步展露出退讓的態度,讓本質意涵有機會自行發聲,甚至期盼主客體終於的相忘與共成。簡單說,我覺得沈昭良的攝影作品,是對時間的瞬間捕捉,更是對滑過指尖的平凡生命,永恆且莊重的凝看。

元智大學藝術與設計系教授  阮慶岳

 

台北都會裡的學術文化菁英,在讚揚台灣這種文化生命力與創造力時,會不會正好以一種「國內之異國情調」的凝視,正當化、政治正確化此種台灣文化的同時,也繼續跟它保持著疏遠的、不真正在乎的「美感」距離呢?這是沈昭良的《STAGE》,讓我聯想到的一些問題,也是他的攝影傑作在藝術成績之外,讓我覺得格外有價值的地方。       

政治大學傳播學院副教授  郭力昕

 

《STAGE》系列真正引人之處不在於它頗能滿足近年整個台灣當代社會,瘋狂訴求某種文化外顯的自我觀視慾望,而在於它那無特殊目的性的、既非熱情亦非冷淡的率真凝視,反倒恰切地呼應了康德(Immanuel Kant)念茲在茲的純粹美感經驗。而正是這種美感經驗,讓我們得以聚焦那些總是似曾相識,卻不斷被遺忘在日常碎裂記憶之間的漂流風景。

Artist’s Tour

21.10 Sat 11:00~11:30

 

I imagine myself making one with the melody,

embracing the full moon

while facing the sea into the flooding lights of the truck stage.

Reflections at the surface of the sea are catching my eyes:

there are deep water fishes hearing my voice,

jumping out the waves in succession

and swinging in rhythm with my singing.

 

At the exhibition, the presented photos featuring various cabaret groups, artists and “truck theaters” is intended to be a “window” for the viewers, especially those who are not familiar with such performances, to glance and appreciate this unique part of Taiwanese culture. The “truck theaters” , as seen at this exhibition, are either the most popular or the most iconic ones in cabaret performances today; some have been re-designed or renovated several times since the early 1990s. It is my hope that, through the “window” of these colorful “truck theaters” and cabaret performers, the diverse and rich elements of Taiwanese culture can be introduced to more people from around the world.

 

As sun goes down, twilight,

reflecting on the rice paddy and pulling in the night,

resonated even more with the magnificent glory

from the stage truck.

Was it a space shuttle ready to take off?

Was it the distance between dream and reality?

Or, was it only a murmur from a midnight dream?

Even right before clicking the camera,

I had no intention of figuring it out.

 

About the Artist

Shen Chao-Liang was born in Tainan, Taiwan, in 1968. He obtained his master’s degree from the Graduate School of the Applied Media Arts, National Taiwan University of Arts. He worked as a photojournalist and vice convenor for the Entertainment, Art and Literature News Center of the Liberty Times, the artist in residence at National Central University, Taiwan, and chairman of the Portfolio Review Committee, Young Art Taipei.

 

Shen has dedicated to feature photography since 1993, starting from his early works of Reflections of Nan-Fang-Ao (2001) to the latter series of YULAN Magnolia Flower (2008), Tsukiji Fish Market (2010) , STAGE (2011) , SINGERS & STAGES (2013) and Taiwanese Vaudeville Troupes (2016) . The collection of works focuses on the social landscapes and life conditions on the realities of the day, and strives through photography to formulate reader consciousness while at the same time fostering dialogue.

 

Shen won the Golden Tripod Award for Best Photography (magazine category) of R.O.C.(Taiwan) in 2000, 2002 and 2012, the Asia Award in Sagamihara, Japan(2004), the Dong-gang Photography Award, Korea (2006), the Artists Wanted: Photography Category Award, NY, USA (2011), and the IPA (International Photography Awards) 1st Place in Professional: Book of Documentary, LA, USA (2012), 2015 The Best Publish Award, Dali International Photography Exhibition, and the 2015 Wu San-Lien Award, respectively.

 

Reviews and Commentaries

Not only has Shen’s STAGE Series achieved archiving of the “found object” that embodied a peculiar local culture; it has succeeded his intention to remind us the complexity and absurdity of this world. While classifying and collecting Stage Cars as “found object”, Shen Chao-Liang’s works also carry the cultural meaning of acquiring these images and empirically studied them.

Gu Zheng

Professor, School of Journalism, Fudan University, China

 

Shen Chao-liang's photography started out from the Phenomenon yet determined to gradually reveal his holding back attitude, enabling the Essence to vocalize, even aiming for the Subject and Object to merge and evolve. To put it simply, I regard Shen’s photography capturing the brief moments of time, while giving an eternal solemn gaze of mundane life slipping through our fingers.

Roan Ching-Yueh

Professor, Department of Art and Design, Yuan-Ze University, Taiwan

 

While elites of the metropolitan Taipei academia and cultural circles are celebrating the vitality and creativity of Taiwanese Culture, justifying it and offering political correctness as they are gazing at the “exotic homeland”, are they still staying an “aesthetic” distance from it with their couldn’t care less attitude? As I admire the artistic achievements in Shen Chao-Liang’s STAGE Series, I treasure even more that his works has inspired me asking the above questions.

Kuo Li-Hsin

Associate Professor, College of Communication, Chengchi University, Taiwan

 

The fascination of the STAGE Series is not the fact that it could satisfy the carving of contemporary Taiwanese society for certain cultural expression self-observations, but rather it has precisely responded to Immanuel Kant’s yearning to experience pure beauty; through the forthright gaze with no particular intentions, neither passionate nor apathetic. While experiencing such beauty we could now focus on the déjà vu, those drifty landscapes being forgotten again and again in our daily fragmented memories.
