【總爺國際藝術駐村計畫】《牡蠣龐克》賴魯犇個展

臺南以牡蠣養殖業聞名,牡蠣殼為其產業所衍生的另一項產物。昔日它們被用來製成建築用的蚵灰,至今臺南仍遺留許多歷史建築,如安平古堡等。牡蠣殼在高溫燒製後成為蚵灰,可與水、糯米與糖混合做為水泥使用。蚵灰於1970年代停用,並由價格低廉的材料取代。

«牡蠣龐克»展覽試圖打造一個存在的復古未來主義:蚵灰仍被廣泛的使用,並且是社會美學的主流;在未來的奇幻世界裡,蚵灰製成的創作品結合電子零件,以一種新的樣態存在。

藝術家使用臺南特有的傳統媒材,結合全球性的工業零件,帶領觀眾進入一種既熟悉又陌生的世界;並提醒我們看似傳統、過時的技術,在現今也可以有其特殊的展現方式,與時俱進的過程永遠不會只有一個途徑。

Tainan is famous for its many oyster farms, and the shells are a byproduct of this industry. Historically, those shells were used to produce oyster cement (蚵灰) which mixed with water - and sometimes other local ingredients, such as sticky rice and sugar - was used in the construction of many historic buildings such as the Anping Old Fort. It’s use ceased during the 1970s and was slowly replaced by other alternatives. «Oysterpunk» is creating a retrofuturistic reality where this building material is still in wide use and in fact at the center of the esthetic ideals of society. Combined with electronic circuits and other materials, it is used to construct artifacts of this strange future that didn’t happen (just yet).  The use of traditional materials, that are special to the Tainan area, mixed with globalized industrial components, let’s the audience enter a world that is both familiar and strange, and reminds us that seemingly traditional, outdated technologies can also have their special place in today's world, and progress is not a one way street.
