“「行為藝術」為二次世界大戰後,於五零、六零年代崛起的一種藝術形式。作為藝術史上一個藝術形式的突破的可能性,而藝術家用身體力行的行為提出關於社會變遷的提問。在那個戰後重建、資本主義興起、和平與性解放.等等的背景下,百家爭鳴、萬花齊放,行為藝術可稱是當時最具前衛性、自由的一種藝術形式。

多半的行為藝術家,採取有別於一般傳統與觀眾交流的形式,在特定的某種時間或地點,運用當下身體的行為與觀眾產生共存關係。因為這種in site、site –specific的性格,所以當「行為藝術」在行為離開發生的時間、空間後,留下的文件、錄像、攝影記錄裡,就已離開了當下的時間與空間。因此在重新面對觀眾時,制式空間氛圍的情境再現展出中,可能性與忠實度又剩下多少?因為這樣的特質,也凸顯了「行為藝術」與可進入藝術市場的其他藝術形式的區別。這或許是與資本主義的抗衡的最後一線?是藝術形式中的某種弱勢力量?或是在藝術與生活中,因此而具有了對抗社會不平現象的某種自由、獨特與崇高性?
………..
如果說行為藝術是包含了身體、時間、空間等特質的藝術形式,藉由藝術家的身體,喚醒存在身體內部與外部世界的對話關係。就讓我們面對面,看見彼此,是如何與我們所處的現實環境來進行對話。

(取自於 發表於“2013屹立於城 香港–台北雙城行為藝術交流”文章/文:葉育君)

試問:發展了五十年歷史的二十一世紀的「行為藝術」該往哪裡去?

我們僅只是提問,藝術家並不提供解答。但是可想像的是,無論是這次運用游擊式的行動以及“忍者”符號的Ulysses Castellanos,或是利用藝術家自身塑形可能性的“變形”的鄒逸真,或是自體回饋,“排泄”反芻的丁禹仲,或是以在慾望投射下,將自身變成“慾望”投射物的葉育君。每位藝術家,在極短的時間內,提出關於自身關切的key words。而藝術家互助行為,藉由共同參與、創作,將A+B大於C的可能性變大。同時間,也將主體變成客體,從客體變為主體。
這樣一個工作坊式的創作,在Flash Mob,或是游擊式女孩(Guerilla Girls )後,我們不能說是完全的前衛主義。 但,是一個在苦悶的島國生活去中心/實驗的創作可能性。

〖Ulysses Castellanos〗

Multidisciplinary Artist and Independent Curator.

Born to a long line of artists, musicians, writers and intellectuals (he is the grandson of celebrated concert pianist Angelita Garcia Peña and Colonel Arturo Castellanos Contreras, who was honored in 2011 as one of the “Righteous Among The Nations” by Yad Vashem for his humanitarian efforts during WWII) Ulysses Castellanos developed an interest in art, music and literature at an early age. This interest led to extensive studies in film and music history, musical composition, visual arts and acting, manifesting itself in the multiple disciplines that Ulysses pursues (music, acting, critical writing, painting, filmmaking, video) and that he combines into elaborate installations, two-dimensional works, sculptures, videos and performances.

 In 2008, Ulysses completed the Telus Interactive Art and Entertainment Program at the Canadian Film Centre, where he worked with physical computing and interactive technology to create USB – powered interactive sculptures.  He is a member of the IKT International Curator’s Association, Luxembourg, as well as The Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN). His work is shown extensively in galleries and screenings throughout North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia. In 2012 he completed Eco Hotel 2, a full-length mystery thriller set in the Colombian Jungle with a cast made entirely of resident artists from Residencia en La Tierra, Villavicencio. In 2014 Ulysses will complete production on his new film: The Hard Drive Was Missing, shot on location at Treasure Hill Artist’s Village in Taipei. Ulysses is represented by Georgia Scherman Projects, Toronto, and Galería Anomalía, Mexico City.

She had studied in France since 2001, and obtained a Master’s degree of Diplôme National Suprieurexpression Plastique from Ecole Nationale Supérieur d'Arts de Paris-Cergy and a Master’s degree of Art et Media Numérique from Paris1–Sorbonne. The forms of her works are mainly of performance arts, video installations, and sound performances, focusing on private and public spaces of bodies and public relations. During her time studying in France, she joined an international art group, Réseau Artskool, and learned dancing from Daniel Dobbels, a famous Franch choreographer. She has often been involved in cross-field cooperation with artists from other fields. Her works have been presented in Paris and Berlin several times. After returning to Taiwan in 2009, he has placed his focus on performance art in public spaces and the goal of “expanding the domain of art”, in hopes of bringing new possibilities to contemporary art through breaking the limitations on concepts and forms in the territory of art. His important works in the recent years include “City Action Series” (2009), “Treasure Palace Youth Hostel ” (2010), “Artistic Action & Record Exchange Movement” (2010, 2011), “Nippon International Performance Art Festival (NIPAF)” (2011), and “One Night Band” (2011-2012). He had joined the international art group Réseau Artskool, residing at Main d’oeuvre Art Center in France (2007) and resided at the Treasure Hill Artist Village (2010). Now she has a new art space called “instant 42” in Luzhou, New Taipei City, considering constructing and managing a space as a form in creation. This space is a complex art space with 3 major functions, art exhibition, studio, and artist-in--residence.
