局部失明 Localized Blindness / Single-channel video / 19m45s / 2019

局部失明 涵蓋個人檔案,拾得資料,童話名著與文學作品,以眼科檢查/觀察診斷的形式構成一部半自傳式的錄像作品。一個人離世後還剩會淨下什麼?該視頻記錄了去年一些幾乎令人窒息的自我對話:我-作為經歷了連續的幾段逝去的個體,另一個我-作為目睹身邊人事物轉變的觀察者,以及其他聲音,不論是從書本和個人巧遇中,左右呼應主題和局外人之間的距離。

 

Localized Blindness consists of personal archives, found materials, fictional classics and literary essays in the form of an eye test/observational diagnosis to build up an autobiographical-fictional narrative. What is left after the passing of an individual? The video documents the dreadful, almost suffocating, a conversation between me - an individual who experienced consecutive passings of people and last year, another me - an observational being who witnessed the changes of my company, and the other voices - from books and personal encounters that echo the distance between the subject and the outsider.

紫藍色車卡 Hyacinthine Scar / Single-channel video / 9m25s / 2018

紫藍色車卡以錄像與圖像,文字和聲音濃縮我前往兄長於關島結婚的旅程中不能消化的情感,種種呈現與凝視,看與被看,婚禮攝影師重複的鏡頭,神父複述的誓言,各人(包括自己)不受控制地瞄準不同事物按下一次又一次快門,還有不斷走到島的不同角落看一面面零碎的西太平洋。關島是一個二百二十平方英里的美國島嶼,大概是香港面積的百分之二,擁有近四十個海灘。我所逗留的塔穆寧是關島的市中心,市中心充斥著不同的遊人,聽說是個著名的遊客樂園。在輕快的查莫洛音樂下,早上的人是咬著熱香餅上的夏威夷果仁,身穿比基尼或窄身遊水衣,露出蒼白泛黃,帶點曬傷的皮膚的,晚上的是拿著在購物拱廊裏搬出來的名店精品,駕駛著出租汽車往經典的美國餐廳用刀子介開厚烤牛肉。每天清晨坐在自助早餐的座位上看著不同種族的人拉著行李箱來來往往,每個服務員都有自身種族的腔音,這些角落都好像個只屬於過客的地方,夢幻又現實。

Hyacinthine Scar condenses the undigested emotions in me while traveling from Hong Kong to my brother’s wedding in Guam. Presences and gazes of all sorts, to look and to be looked at, repetitive camera work of the hired videographers, the vow that is rehearsed over and over again by the priest, all the uncontrollable clickings of the shutter from all the us (including myself), and the endless sightings of different sides of the fragmented Western Pacific... Guam is a 220 sqm island that belongs to the United States, about 2% of the size of Hong Kong, and with nearly 40 beaches. The several mornings I was there, I sat through my breakfast buffet watching people of different ethnicities pulling their suitcases in and out of the hotel, each speaking their own dialect. The many spots I visited appear as though they belong to the passersby. They are as real as they are dreamy.

"Winnie Yan Wai Yin and Joanna-Yulia Wierig worked parallel on individual projects that nonetheless mirror each other in their focuses on different processes of nonfulfillment. In her essayistic video Joanna addresses the tensions between an alleged globalization by means of media and the experienced differences when finally, being confronted with an alien location such as Hong Kong. Winnie took the opposite approach by attempting to document her encounter with the topography of Zurich with maps of evolving sizes that always fall short in their representative function and the necessity of such a failure. " (Birk Weiberg)
