YAO Jui-Chung (姚瑞中) was born in 1969. Lives and works in Taipei. He graduated from The National Institute of The Arts (Taipei National University of the Arts) with a degree in Art Theory. His works has been widely exhibited in numerous international exhibitions. In 1997, he represented Taiwan in “Facing Faces-Taiwan” at the Venice Biennale. After that, he took part in the International Triennale of Contemporary Art Yokohama (2005), APT6 (2009), Taipei Biennale (2010), Shanghai Biennale (2012), Beijing Photo Biennale (2013), Shenzhen Sculpture Biennale (2014), Venice Architecture Biennale, Media City Seoul Biennale (2014), Asia Triennial Manchester (2014), Asia Biennale (2015) and Sydney Biennale (2016). Yao is the winner of The Multitude Art Prize in 2013 and 2014 Asia Pacific Art Prize. We can also find him widely involved in the fields of theatre and films.

Yao specializes in photography, installation and painting. The themes of his works are varied, but most importantly they all examine the absurdity of the human condition. Representative works include Action Series. We can find the clue he explores the question of Taiwan’s identity in Military take over (1994), subverts modern Chinese political myths in Recovering Mainland China (1997), and examines post-colonialism in The World is for All (1997~2000) as well as Long March-Shifting the Universe (2002). In recent years, he has created photo installations combining the style of “gold and green landscape” with the superstitions that permeate Taiwanese folklore, expressing a false and alienated “cold reality” that is specific to Taiwan. Representative works include the series of Celestial Barbarians (2000), Savage Paradise (2000) and Heaven (2001). Another photo installation series Libido of Death (2002) and Hill (2003) tries to probe into the eternal issue of body and soul. Recently, Yao Jui-Chung has assembled all the black-and-white photos of ruins he took in the past fifteen years, grouped under the themes of industry, religious idols, architecture and military bases. They reveal the enormous ideological black hole in Taiwan hidden behind the trends of globalization and Taiwan’s specific historical background as a continuation of the main theme of his work: the absurdity of the historical destiny of humanity. Since 2007, Yao has started to create a series of works including Wonderful (2007), Dust in the Wind (2008~2010), Dreamy (2008~2010), Romance (2009) and Honeymoon (2010~2011). He appropriates masterpieces from Chinese art history and recreates them in his own way, transforming them into his personal history or real stories in an attempt to turn grand narratives into the trivial affairs of his individual life. Yao intends to usurp so called orthodoxy with his recreated landscapes. In 2010, Yao grouped his students into a team of photography workshop called “Lost Society Document”(LSD). He encouraged them to photograph and survey in their hometowns. Through the way of field survey, they attempt to draw the outline of “mosquito houses” which have been widely criticized, publish three books named “Mirage: Disused Public Property in Taiwan“, and practice the possibility of observing the society by the meaning of art.

Apart from creating art, Yao Jui-Chung has curated exhibitions including The Realm of Illusion-The New wave of Taiwan Photography (2002), King-Kon Never DieThe Contemporary Performance & Video art in Taiwan (2003) and Spellbound Aura-The New Vision of Chinese Photography (2004). His essays have been published in many art journals. He has also published several books, including Installation Art in Taiwan since 1991-2001 (2002), The New Wave of Contemporary Taiwan Photography Since 1999 (2003), Roam The Ruins of Taiwan (2004), Performance Art in Taiwan 1978~2004 (2005), A Walk in the Contemporary Art : Roaming the Rebellious Streets (2005), Ruined Islands (2007), Yao Jui-Chung (2008), Beyond humanity (2008), Nebulous light (2009), and Biennial-Hop (2010), “Mirage: Disused Public Property in Taiwan ⅠⅡⅢⅣ (2010~2016). His works have been collected by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan; the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Kaohsiung, Taiwan; the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan; Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia; Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art Collection, Cornell University, USA; Bibliothèque National de France, Paris, France (French National Library, Paris); Art Museum of Seoul, and many other private collectors. Now, Yao Jui-Chung works as an artist and teacher at the National Taiwan Normal University Department of Fine Arts.



姚瑞中(1969~)長期以來,對台灣與中國近代史之間的糾葛與意識型態的對立,已進行了超過二十年的相關議題創作,主要透過個人親身經歷過的事件進行角色扮演,用嬉笑辱罵、搞笑姿態去顛覆歷史定論,用四兩撥千金手方將沉重的悲情宿命剝開,早期作品大多具有這種特色。例如1994年結合行為與裝置的作品“本土佔領行動”。1997年完成“反攻大陸行動”之後,他開始思考華人在全球化當中所面臨的一些問題,於是創作了“天下為公行動-中國外的中國“這件攝影裝置。2002年創作的“萬里長征行動之乾坤大挪移“與”歷史幽魂“(2007),都有其一貫脈絡跟旨趣。姚瑞中採取了類似一座立體DNA曲線的創作模式,多年來幾條路線像綁辮子般相互纏繞。例如“本土佔領行動”開展出了一條身體政治路線,可是也必然會碰到空間政治的議題,其主要具體形象可能就是廢墟,因此他以檔案學方式進行個人式的國土普查,推出了數個以廢墟為主的創作計劃,包括“廢墟迷走” 、“廢島”,當然還有後來率領“失落社會檔案室”專注於蚊子館的發掘,以微型文化行動陸續出版“海市蜃樓”(2010~2015)作品。對姚瑞中而言,廢墟不只是廢墟,藉由廢墟試圖談論的是在特定歷史脈絡下所形成的“政治地理學”概念,並進一步考掘廢墟背後的權力運作痕跡,並非歌頌廢墟之滄桑美感,而是指向所有廢墟都是權力鬥爭失敗的產物。經過多年深入研究,推出了“萬歲”(2011),探討冷戰時期共產主義跟民主陣營在西太平洋的前線金門構築了大量的軍事設施,當冷戰結束之後,地緣政治的客觀條件消長而被迫裁撤。2013年發表的“萬萬歲”,姚瑞中試圖談論二大鬥爭集團是如何運作,及其背後權力部署的鬥爭痕跡,藉此考據並反思黨國統治權力運作的複雜關係。而面對影響台灣命運的帝國主義陰影,他試圖挑戰各類正統性題材,例如威權統治與冷戰防線、殖民主義與解殖民性、神聖性與常民性、反正統“國畫”等範疇,以反思台灣與中國之間複雜的政治與文化脈絡。在新冷戰似乎逐漸升溫的當下,各區域政治正面臨權力重組的挑戰,因此特別推薦作品成熟、國際參展經驗豐富的藝術家姚瑞中以全新作品參展,以一貫嘻笑辱罵的幽默手法,自創一套金蟬脫殼的平行歷史,冷眼看待過往冷戰與方興未艾的新冷戰一個嶄新的台灣觀點。



Lecture 3: Copyleft: Appropriation Art in China (借屍還魂的反正統繪畫)

Since 2007, Yao has started to create a series of works in Scotland including Wonderful (2007), Dust in the Wind (2008~2010), Dreamy (2008~2010), Romance (2009), Honeymoon (2010~2011), Very Temple (2013), Brain Dead Tranelogue (2015), Eight Days a Week (2016) and Baby (2017). He appropriates masterpieces from Chinese art history and recreates them in his own way, transforming them into his personal history or real stories in an attempt to turn grand narratives into the trivial affairs of his individual life. Yao intends to usurp so called orthodoxy with his recreated landscapes.

In the past, the Six Principles of Painting elucidated by Xie He enveloped Chinese painting for fifteen hundred years, forming an unbreakable testing standard. By nature, Yao has never been an obedient child, as is summed up simply by Yao’s Six Principles self-ridicule: “As we all know, Chinese painting takes the ink brush as the criterion, the touch of the brush is what lays a foundation for the brushwork characteristics ink brush painting, and from this the bone property of brush strokes are derived. I deliberately choose modern writing tools (ballpoint pens, marker pens, ink fountain or rollerball pens, and technical pens), using ‘Weaving Silk with Hard Pens’, to build up depth and layering progressively with each stroke. As the colour filling the pens is all of the same shade, I combine quick strokes with slow strokes to produce changes in shade in a single line. Because ink stick and ink stone are not used, this is called ‘No Stick, No Stone’. In order not to allow the lines drawn by hard pens on smooth paper to appear flat, the coarse texture of handmade Indian cotton paper is used instead of traditional rice paper; ‘Coarse Cotton in Place of Rice’. Complementing hard pens with dry wrinkled surfaces forms a special kind of artwork. The coarse texture of the remaining white spaces after gold foil has been pasted on lends it an appearance closer to that of the murals in the Dunhuang Grottoes. After the gold has been used to fill the white spaces, the appearance is not too brilliant and gorgeous, but rather has a beautiful graceful feeling, and this process is called ‘Put Gold Where There is White.’ Frankly speaking, I’ve always felt elaborate artist’s signatures to be a little superfluous, so I advocate ‘Low Profile Signing’. As for the seal, these are a specialized field of knowledge, there is no need for them to take up a big chunk of space on the artwork, so I use instead a ‘Steel-stamped Floating Imprint’ instead. To summarize, in this era of all schools contending for attention, how to shake off the old styles and schools and make one’s one mark with a unique signatory style has become more important than ever before. Naturally, both subject matter and form need to have spirit. In the past there was the deformation of the late Ming Dynasty, now there’s the post-Republic pseudo-landscape, altogether four hundred years off inherited style. Isn’t the contrast between the two wonderful!”



Lecture 4: Life Cycle and God’s Link (永劫輪迴的欲力奇觀)

Nowadays, Taiwan has over twelve hundred temples and therefore being a leading figure of temple culture. Paying homage to temples embodies the diversity of Chinese people. Hiding behind the temples are the wish and desire of all kinds. Chinese want to get real benefits, physical health and great next life through supernatural power, hence, demand and supply, all kinds people, no matter they are strange or sophisticated, men or women, good or bad, high rank or low class, are kneeling down and praying in temples. A temple becomes bigger with its legend becomes fancier suggests a number of its believers might have already received help from unexplainable mysterious power. Sacrifice is not made solely based on belief but also on the number of realised miracles, as well as how great those miracles are. A temple would gather strength through its huge statue. This series of photographs contains over 180 temples, cemeteries, parks and playgrounds across Taiwan, they were shot within one year and a half since the beginning of 2016. The main focus of this series is on the God’s image created out of the self-image of Han Chinese, some of the locations are abandoned, more not. Through those projections of human desire, the geographical political relations of those locations would be understood. Usually a photograph would appear to be narrative when there is human within, however, being narrative is not the artist’s intent. Yao hides human behind the image by not shooting any scene that contains “activity”, “ceremony” and “human”. The only thing that he focused on is the “projection of huge human desire”, which is the physical figuration of the God. Typologically, the subject of this series is closer to landscape than folklore. Things presented in the photos are the normal looks instead of special looks during special occasions of the statues. There is no human, no event, no disaster in the photos and the photographing process is purely calm and objective. The objects shot are not religious buildings, folk events or religious ceremonies, but the “figurations of human desire” that exist beyond. People’s desire builds up the “figure” of a huge statue, but this “figure” is merely phantom. Because what can be seen is not the reality and all the “figures” are nothing more than vanity. A person would get lost in the eternal life cycle if being obsessed with the “figure”.

臺灣目前有一萬兩千多間廟宇,宮廟文化獨步全球,更是華人世界最複雜繽紛的一塊領域, 大部分宮廟皆藏有凡夫俗子對現世的各種需求與寄託,民眾希望藉由超驗界力量獲取現實利益、肉身健康或來生想望,因此就產生了供需問題,舉凡奇人異士、文人騷客、販夫走卒在此叩首,善男信女、黑白二道、三教九流無不跪拜,一間廟宇越蓋越大、越來越神,表示背後有眾多信徒可能獲得無法解釋的神秘力量幫助,奉獻的基礎不全然是信仰本身,往往根據靈驗多寡與神蹟高強而定,並藉由廟宇所興建的巨大神像產生凝聚力量。這系列攝影作品自2016年初開拍,歷經一年半密集拍攝全台一百八十餘間廟宇、墓園、公園及樂園,主要關注漢人用自我形象所投射而形塑出來的神偶世界,祂們有些毀棄、大部份還存在,透過這些欲望投射物進而了解地理空間上的特殊政治性關係。通常攝影畫面只要有人物形象出現往往會有敘事性,但我想跳開敘事,將具體的人之形象隱藏到畫面後方,因此避免拍攝「活動」、「祭典」或是有「人物」的場景,只專注於信徒們膜拜的「巨大欲力投射」,也就是神明之具體形象,偏向類型學景觀式攝影而非民俗攝影,拍攝的是常態樣貌而非特殊個案,作品中沒有人物、迴避事件、遠離災難,採取客觀冷靜且抽離的姿態,拍攝對象也非宗教建築、民俗活動或信仰儀式,而是展現超越前述內容的「慾力具體化」。萬眾慾力共構出一尊巨大神像的「相」,但再現此「相」實為幻影,因為所見實相非相,凡所有相皆是虛妄,若過度執著於相即生迷惘,將墮入永劫輪迴之中而不可自拔焉。
