陳綺貞創作個展「移動的房間」/ Cheer Chen's ''being, not being'' exhibition
陳綺貞,每個臺灣人在青少年時都會哼上她的一首歌,不管是當時對 愛情的懵懂無知還是對社會行為的一知半解,陳綺貞的歌曲總是能帶 給每個正在茁壯的年輕人一個撫慰的力量。距離陳綺貞上一張專輯『時間的歌』到現在已經相隔了三年,每個人 都在期待陳綺貞的全新作品以及回歸,因為對這一個世代的台灣人而 言,我們的青春裡都有著屬於陳綺貞的一個房間。今年七月,陳綺貞回到了觀眾面前;不過,這一次她不是帶著全新的 音樂而是帶著透過解構的力量的影像讓觀眾更貼近他的內心與想法。
『移動的房間』是一個解構陳綺貞生活的展覽,就像是將一塊拼湊完 整的幾何拼圖重新拼湊,而在過程中我們檢視每一塊基本的物件如何完成一個完整的拼圖。身為一個臺灣流行文化的指標,出道 18 年的陳綺貞,除了有歌手的 稱號以外更有人稱呼他為一位藝術家,因為她不僅為臺灣的文化立下 標竿,更在渾沌的現實生活中保持自我。
‘Losing your courage that may be happening on the journey. obsess the unfinished dreams, a journey without an end perhaps is the meaning of travelling.’
