Jim Vivieaere

Cook Islands /New Zealand
Born 1947

Over the years, I have managed a number of interactive experiences within metropolitan museums, as an audience and as a consultant; trading places as a site for discourse, and a location for making art.

This exhibition enables me to exercise yet another train of thought, devising notions of an Oceanic belonging.

出生於1947

數年來,我曾在幾處大都會的博物館有一些互動的經驗,我個人身兼觀眾與顧問的角色,將這些場所經營為論述或創作地點。

本展覽則讓我得以發展出另一系列的想法,建立一個身為大洋洲人的感知概念。

Jim Vivieaere has been creating artwork in museum spaces for over two decades, which frequently responds to how Pacific cultures are represented within institutions. This installation uses a version of the soundscape specifically created for his renowned touring exhibition Bottled Ocean 1994, which was the first group exhibit of contemporary Pacific art.

The passages between water and sky, and the presence of the artist's own children, invoke lyrical sensations of self and place.

吉姆‧維維亞雷在博物館空間進行藝術創作已有二十餘年的經驗,其創作經常反映出太平洋文化在各機構中如何被展示呈現。此件裝置作品所使用的聲景(sound-scape)版本是特別為他自己所策劃的巡迴展《瓶中洋》(Bottled Ocean, 1994)所製作的,該展是第一個當代太平洋藝術聯展。

影片中海水與天空之間的通道,以及藝術家自己的小孩在片中出現,都將激發許多有關自我與地域的抒情感受。
