An Auction without Bass (2021)


「用舞蹈去說話,似是老生常談,可是誰在說話?說怎樣的 話 ? 說給誰聽 ? 是次作品以『舉手』(幾乎每個人都做過的動 作)為藍本,然而舉左手或右手有分別嗎 ? 手舉到哪裏會影響 到本身的涵義嗎?手掌的方向重要嗎?

舉手,可以是標誌納粹的禁忌動作,可以是象徵自古以來投票的 其中一個方法,可以單純是演唱會中舉手投足的投入擺動。通過 拆解『舉手』包含的表現性及隱藏的脈絡,再把觀眾置身一場有關 動作的『拍賣會』中,動作所謂的價值由賣方和買方共同決定。 」

“Using dance to speak one’s mind seems rather clichéd. Still, who is speaking, what to speak, and to whom do we speak remain unanswered questions. The blueprint of this work develops from ‘hand-raising’, an everyday gesture performed by all of us. Here, it is also unanswered whether it makes any difference which hand to raise, whether the extent affects the meaning of the gesture, and whether the direction of the hand matters.

Hand-raising can be interpreted as a taboo Nazi or fascist salute, as one of the well-established means of voting, or simply as a natural response to rhythms in a pop concert. Revealing the expressivity and hidden contexts behind hand-raising, this work situates the audience in an ‘auction’ of gestures, in which the so-called exchange values are mutually negotiated by the sellers and the purchasers.”
