駐館創作計畫

日本藝術家牛島光太郎運用文字敘說進行裝置創作,他以營造出來的場景呈現故事,但他避免形成構造故事的意圖,因此故事沒有發展的絕對方向也沒有結局的設定。他選擇日常生活中不著邊際的場景、景色、事件,並與之產生聯結,發展成故事的形態。牛島的作品自2003年以來即以完成的順序命名,如:「場景1」、「場景2」、「場景3」…,至2008年已發展至「場景35」。他期望以這些場景作為找尋他自己,以及連結外界的線索,並能對他人產生意義。

牛島光太郎於關渡美術館的駐館期間(2008/04/08-05/18)將延續其「場景35」及「場景36」的製作,並以台灣的素材作為他創作日記範本的原素。

Program Proposal

The Japanese artist Ushijima Koutarou creates his works based on the narrative texts within his installation. He presents stories by setting up the scenery but avoids the intention of trying to construct a story. Therefore, the story goes nowhere and has no specific ending. Ushijima picked the rambling scenes and events from everyday life around him and tried to make connection with them then to develop a story in his installations. From 2003, Ushijima started to entitle his works in order of completion as "Scene 1", "Scene 2", "Scene 3"..., and now is approaching "Scene 35" in 2008. He expects that these scenes can be the clues of finding himself and as well of connecting to the outer world and finally can produce meaning to the others.

Ushijima will continue his production of "Scene 35" and "Scene 36" during his stay in the Kuandu Museum of Fine art (2008/04/08-05/18) and will take the local materials as the creative elements in his diary in Taiwan.
