Same team, different show


      昨天去了華山看teamLab的互動展,其實衝擊蠻大的。因為我早在去年六月就在加州的Pace Gallery 看過他們的展場了。只是在Pace Gallery, 他們呈現的方式和在台灣的氣氛差非常多。


       一開始其實有點不能接受,因為Pace地點偏僻但空間很大,沒有固定動線,人超級少。最大的不同是在Pace是屬於靜態的互動,觀賞者可以進入用多層玻璃隔板所重疊的海浪走動,去感受海浪的層次與聲音;也可以觀賞12面動態浮世繪。當初其實除了烏鴉和花的讓我印象最深外,這12面浮世繪風格動畫看似是不同獨立的故事,但仔細研究可以發現它們的故事都有連結在一起。破碎的出現,破碎的結束,就好像從虛無中開始,亦從虛無中結束而回歸原始。


       因此一開始發現華山沒有展那12張看版以及多層次海浪其實有點遺憾,再加上本身的人群恐懼症讓我沒辦法很融入,因為我真的超討厭去看一個有趣的展卻要人擠人、搶拍照位置還有需要人帶位的感覺⋯⋯我個人認為會受到干擾。


       但後來仔細的想一想,這次teamLab延續上一次的互動,並把這種互動化為更親民也更活潑。這不是我一直想要做的事嗎?我一直覺得藝術不應該要讓人看不懂,或是敬而遠之。我認為藝術就是應該要貼近人,讓人覺得好玩、新奇、震撼且能夠互動。這樣不就打破了“藝術就是美美的,不能碰,讓人看不懂然後只能站在線後面觀賞”的刻板印象?可以看到喜歡的團隊有不同的展演方式,不是一個很難得可貴的收獲嗎?



On January 12, 2017, I went to Huashan 1914 for teamLab's《teamLab Dance! Art Exhibition, Learn & Play! teamLab Future Park》. Actually, I had a culture shock to this show because I saw their show last June at Pace Art + Technique Gallery, CA, USA. The atmosphere is quite different between here and Pace.


At Pace, space was large with fewer people so that I could walk anywhere freely. The biggest difference was that the activity at Pace was peaceful and silent. Audiences can walk through multiple layers of glass with videos and sounds of waves so they can fee they're walking through waves.


Another work that impresses me a lot is twelve cohesive pieces of animated Ukiyo-es. At first, I thought their stories are independent, but those twelve animations actually connect with each other. They appear and disappear from pieces, just as they are born and dead, from nihilism to nihilism.


Therefore, I was a little bit disappointed because I didn't see the multiple layers of waves and twelve Ukiyo-es. Additionally, I hate seeing an exhibition with the crowded, and I also hate people are too many that staffs need to guide the traffic. I had a distracting feeling when I tried to immerse to the show.


On the other side, I think carefully and I figure that teamLab makes their styles can be not only peaceful but also vivid. They even make the activity be closer to audiences and more lively. Isn't it my goal? I always believe that art should be close to people and make them fun, impressive, and can be interactive. 


In my perspective, they break the stereotype that "Art is a craft that cannot be touched and close to. Also, they're hard to be understood just because they're art." It is exactly worthy to see the same team with distinct ways to present themselves and give audiences fun.
