沙文生態演示圖 Chauvinistic Ecology Presentation


父權社會,充塞著陽具至上的觀念,從龍的圖騰神話到洋槍大砲,無不是陽具暴力的表徵。或許大多數人已習慣這尺寸大小的衡量方式而引以為常,沒啥不對,甚至認為改變是不對或可恥的行為。

作者面對此古董又非古董的怪物透過圖像語言(符號)來演繹示範––可能避免不了符號的特殊性自我語彙,與一般普遍性的圖像經驗有所差異––但作者認為此是創作的基因,無可避免個人語彙的存在性;亦可能個人符號語彙是普遍現象的延展,只要觀者願意深入去思考,是不難懂得符號的內涵及作者的企圖。

另一個論述:性。此是沙文生態中的一重要環節––不是避開談性就可免除沙文的存在性;不是刻意談性就可理解沙文的無理。問題不在於談與不談,而在於能否嚴肅地面對。

創作,來自於人類行為的一部分;因此,用以紀錄人類行為是理所當然。創作者將其所見所聞所思透過符號、工具呈現出來。此次作者企圖用個人的特殊語彙來陳述人類普遍的行為現象,而此特殊語彙是來自人類的普遍現象,也就是取自人的符號語言,將其轉化為圖像。作者希望能藉由此次展覽,提出一些問題來。

Creation is a part of human behavior as is recording that behavior in all its forms by using symbols, including sight, sound and thought. In this exhibition, the author attempts, using his own self invented vocabulary, to describe this creation phenomenon of general human behavior and their language forms. Through his unique visualizations and language, the author hopes to raise important questions of morality in this singular theme.

In patriarchal societies, chauvinism, the concept that male is supreme, ranges from the mythology of dragons and totem poles to foreign guns and artillery. These are all items that symbolize the penis and patriarchal violence. Perhaps most people are used to this kind of thinking and even believe that it is wrong or shameful to change this type of belief system.

Chauvinism is an ancient topic that is still relevant today. It is a topic that covers controversy between both sexes and describes methods to consolidate and fight for authority, which includes sensitive and feudal material.

Another important part of Chauvinistic ecology is sex. We cannot prevent the existence of Chauvinism or understand the unreasonable Chauvinist attitude without talking about sex, but without a comical or porn glazed bias.

The author faces other various symbolistic monsters in both their antique and modern forms. He believes the existence of a personal vocabulary is part of the gene of creation, and cannot be avoided going as far as pointing out that personal symbolic vocabulary may be the extension of the universal phenomenon of creation. Yes, his vision is different from various universal versions of these image experiences but, the connotation of these symbols and the attempts of the author are easy to understand if the viewer is willing to think of them in a deeper sense.
