策展實績 > 還原記憶 吳旻華創作個展 Restore Memory WU Min Hua Solo Exhibition

在漢化以前的高山原住民生活,為適應地形遷徙與取得資源,雙腳是日常生活賴以行走交通的工具,於祭典中,亦能看見部落婦女以雙腳俐落搓輾小米以利脫殼作業的過程,脫下鞋子後充滿紋路的腳掌,其節奏和視覺的美感如同是再現歷史的畫面。

隨著青年一代代外出打拼,足跡成為了從母文化脫離的象徵,然卻仍是人類曾踏於此地生長的印證。身為排灣族後代的藝術家吳旻華,藉由為部落親人製作腳印拓模,在主觀的情感上面對血緣、文化、記憶,除了是追尋母體文化的心情紀實,亦探尋個體被重視後所喚醒的使命感,以及足跡脫下文明外殼後所剩的功能與意義。


Before Sinicizing, the aboriginals in Taiwan’s high mountains used to migrate and obtain resources on foot. During rituals, women in tribes used to grind foxtail millet and remove its shell with bare feet, displaying the historical scenery with beauty of tempo and vision.

As younger generations emigrate to work, footprints become the symbol of one’s departure from native culture, while they still prove traces of growth. As an offspring of Payuan tribe, the artist WU Min Hua deals with her origin, culture and memories through casting her family members’ feet. Aside from recording her emotion when pursuing native culture, she also explores her awaken sense of mission and the function and meanings of footprints beyond civilization.

歸來 Backtrack 2017
瓷土、紅泥、麻繩 Porcelain, Red clay, Hemp rope
作品以四件一組的形式分別呈現出男人和女人不同的手型姿態,藉由瓷土素燒後呈現的質感以及皮膚一層接著一層撥開的意象,欲表達文化外殼與內在實體流逝的現象。 The artwork represents the different hand-postures of men and women in a set of four. The burned-clay texture and the image of peeling skin layer by layer portray the phenomenon of fading cultural exterior and interior.
牽繫著前進 Bind with Relocation2017
陶土 Ceramic
來自四面八方的族人藉由祭典來凝聚情感,歷經一代接著一代的搬遷居住,不同的環境景物、不同的族人,不變的是延續百年的傳統慶典舞。在那一刻族人從各地帶回不同的故事交流、分享,延續口述的歷史記憶,交壘累積世世代代的精神象徵。 The clansmen from all directions assemble affections through the festival. After generations’ migration, the environment and the structure of the clansmen have altered, while the traditional festive dance remains the same. During the festival, clansmen gather to share different stories and to pass down historical memories, accumulating the spiritual symbol of the tribe.
遷移的痕跡 Trace of Relocation2017
石膏、土、漂流木 Plaster, Soil, Driftwood
運用翻模的腳掌呈現遷移過程沉重的步伐,每一個腳掌代表的即是仍生活在土地上的親友身分,象徵遷移正在持續進行的歷史脈絡。 Each sole portrays the heavy footsteps of relocation, representing the identity of a living friend or a family member. The artwork symbolizes the ongoing historical context of relocation.
