REALITies Incubation – VR Exhibition of Tzu-Ning Wu孵化現實 // 吳梓寧VR創作個展

Artist Tzu-Ning Wu’s work involves 3D animation to demonstrate virtual identities, virtual cities, and virtual natures in the cyber space. Her Cyberbeingsseries, created in 2003, was chosen as one of the Honourable Mentions for the Taipei Arts Awards in 2004. The Cyber Nativeseries, from 2006 to 2009, describes a self-portrait of the artist’s avatar through the dynamic changes of screen snapshots of websites and browser’s interface to form a technological exterior similar to a semi-aboriginal totem as her technical skin. In 2016, the series Cyber Native – Shanghai Planet, Cyber Samsara, and the GFP Posthuman Farmcontinued to investigate technology and physical adjustment, which demonstrates that while humans create technology, they are also under the influence of a dynamic circular relationship molded by technology. Furthermore, a new art project in 2018, Metaverse, delves into post-human, self-incubating and self-fashioning technologies to correspond with the theme of “+REALITies Incubation”.

 

Wu Tzu-Ning (Laza Wu)

Born in 1978, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Dr. Wu received her Ph.D. in creative art and theory from Tainan National University of the Arts, and is the associate professor of the Art Industry Department at National Taitung University, Taiwan. She was the curator of the “Freeze! 2009 International MedTech Art Show” cooperated with NTMOFA. She concerned about the technology and the body issues in contemporary art creations and curatorials practices. Her personal artworks in the past were mixed media and installations with theatrical and literary characteristics, which were related to the aesthetics of “concrete poetry”. In recent years, her interactive and performance works are combined with the digital new media and interactive video projections. She is keenly working on the layout through the exhibition to question about the circular causal relationship between the artist, artworks and the audiences, and also presenting her doubts of daily life and social relations. From “Cyberbeings”(2003) to “Mind Your Body”(2011) and “WORDS”(2013) a series of her solo exhibitions, she discussed the issue of “Body as a Cybernetic Medium” through her presentation. Her 2016 solo exhibition “Born Beyond the Womb”(2016) at the Goethe Institute Shanghai was evoked by the biotechnology and her persistent research and creations about the “Posthuman Body” issues. In 2018, she involves in the “doomsday school” art project, by exploring the technical essence of virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality through her work “Metaverse” to build a virtual Ark and preserving cultural assets with 3D scanning technology. From Modernology perspective to rethinking about common modern objects and to imagine how to survive (or not) under the ultimate apocalypse. Her recent works have been collected by Art Bank Taiwan, White Rabbit Gallery (Australia) and various international institutions.

展覽簡介

本展回顧吳梓寧自2003年起《虛境公民》系列創作,首度以3D動畫表現網路世界中的虛擬分身、虛擬城市、虛擬自然,並獲2004台北美術獎優選;而2006至2009年的《網路原民》,透過網頁瀏覽器的動態流變,形成類原住民圖騰的科技表皮,呈現作者的自我肖像;2016年《網路原民-上海星球》、《網路後世》、《GFP自耕農》系列作品,持續性探討科技與身體的調控,呈現當人類創造科技的同時也受到科技模塑的動態循環關係;再加入2018年新作《魅塌域》(Metaverse),探討後人類的自我孵化與自我塑造技術,以回應「孵化現實+」的個展主題。

 

吳梓寧

1978年生於臺灣高雄,國立臺南藝術大學藝術創作理論研究所博士,現職國立臺東大學美術產業學系專任副教授,曾任國立臺灣美術館《急凍醫世代-2009醫療與科技藝術國際展》策展人,長期關注科技與身體議題的當代藝術創作及策展。其個人創作從早年帶有劇場性格與文學詩性的複合媒材空間裝置的具體詩,到近年來結合新媒體數位影音投映的互動與表演等,皆擅於透過展場佈局來進行作者、作品與觀者間的場面調度,並對生活與社會中的種種問題與關係,提出觀念性的作品提問。從《虛境公民》(2003)到《即身書寫》(2011)與《WORDS》(2013)的系列個展,皆探討「身體作為模控媒介」的呈現與展演。而2016年《恆空出世》個展更從生物科技角度出發,持續對「後人類身體」議題進行研究與創作發表。2018年開始投入「末日學校」的藝術計畫,透過作品《魅塌域》探究虛擬實境、擴增實境與混和實境的技術本質,結合3D掃描技術打造虛擬方舟,從考現學與文資保存的向度思考終極末日來臨的求存之道。吳梓寧近期作品由台灣藝術銀行,澳洲白兔畫廊和國際公私立藝術機構所收藏。
