展覽簡介 Introduction/

在《環保的氣氛戰爭之 2061》中,江洋輝將環保意識轉換為戰鬥意義,將環保的行動意識轉喻為戰爭氣氛的來源,以「2061」作為展覽的主要關鍵。如同一個觀念的符號,2061 可以是一段虛構的歷史片段,可以是五十年後的今日,也可以是毫無意義的一組數字。作為氣氛式的概念操演,藝術家試圖以兩種不在場對象建構一齣戰爭想像,一是尚未企及的未來,另一是無法具體指涉但確切存在的敵人身影。「這場戰爭對抗的並非任何現存系統或體制,如果有什麼可以具現為戰爭,那麼這場戰爭應該是發生在人類意識的抉擇之中......」江洋輝如是說。藝術家將這場氣氛式戰爭的矛盾,體現在虛構歷史文本的追尋意象中,在看似追擊的歷程裡,被追擊之物因其不可見,反身要求觀者反省個人對於環境所採取的意識姿態。作為刻不容緩的意識鬥爭,作為人類不得不面對的生存景況,作為全球性的公共議題,在生態養分耗竭之後,環保終將迫切凌駕於政治、社會、經濟、歷史、文化與藝術之上。在不遠的未來,如果人類依舊毫無節制地對賴以生存的環境資源予取予求,對於生態破壞沒有回應適當的控制手段,人類對生態所帶來的影響將造成「真正的戰爭。」

According to legitimate statistics, the current impacts on human caused by climatic changes are far greater than what wars could induce. The economic losses caused by global climatic changes and extreme weather catastrophes are ten times greater than the circumstances four decades ago. As we know, global warming is causing serious climatic changes, and bizarre weather conditions and precipitations are bearing various signs, and an invisible force with an accelerated speed is pushing mankind into a lengthy and critical battle for survival. Extending from documents used in a public art project, Yang-Huei Chiang of VERY Conception has invited fashion photographer, Kris Shao, and Wei-Jion La, winner of the Golden Horse Award for Best Costume Design, to join in the collaborative effort to present the exhibition’s direction with an approach using disguised narrative.

In “The Ambience of Environmental Protection War – 2061”, Yang-Huei Chiang has turned environmental protection consciousness into a warfare, where environmental protection actions are transformed into the origin of war, and “2061” is used as a key factor for the art endeavor. Similar to a conceptual icon, 2061 could be a fabricated fragment of history, the day of today 50 years later, or it could just be a combination of meaningless numbers. As a conceptual demonstration based on ambiance, the artist attempts to use two non-present subjects to construct a make-believe war, where one is based on the unknown future, and the other is the not-so-concrete yet realistically present enemy. “This war is not trying to fight against any existing system, and by considering it as an actual war, it is to say that the war is happening within the decisions made by the human consciousness…” says Chiang. The ironic nature in “The Ambience of Environmental Protection War” is depicted through the pursuant of meanings found within the fabricated historical documents, and from what appears to be a journey of pursuit. Because of the invisibility of the subjects being pursued, the spectators are hence being asked in return to introspect about their personal approaches and actions toward the environment. In this war of consciousness that could not afford any further delay, mankind is forced to face the current situation that is pertinent to survival. When natural resources are eventually fully depleted, environmental issues will forcibly have priority over political, social, economical, historical, cultural, and artistic matters. In the not too distant future, if mankind continues to exhaust without restraint the natural resources that we rely on for survival, and if proper controls are not implemented for the destructions we are causing in nature, the impacts that mankind has provoked in the environment will ultimately cause the break out of a “Real War”.
