「一園六季」 | GARDENS AS MAPS OF CULTURE

自古以來,人類一直創造人造環境,不論是通過經濟開發,還是對花園設計的講究而創造。通過各種文化和元素來探索物件製作的歷史和技術,包括地圖製作、藥物治療以及以花園作為文化文物 Para Site 藝術空間的大型群展「一園六季」呈現出不一樣的文化製品。「一園六季」於2020 年 5 月 16 日(星期六)至 8 月 30 日(星期日)開展,將分別於兩大場地: 橫跨兩層 Para Site 藝術空間及香港 Soho House 展出,並為年底舉行的 2020 年加德滿都三年 展的前奏。

It is not an overstatement to claim artificial environments as cultural artifacts as the history of human creations begun along with the building of a manmade environment. This is apparent in both the process of economically exploiting nature and the sophisticated manipulation of garden design. Para Site presents a large-scale group exhibition, “Garden of Six Seasons”, that gathers works of global artists to explore the history of human creations, including map-making, medicinal studies and garden designs as cultural artifacts. “Garden of Six Seasons” opens from 16 May (Saturday) to 30 August (Sunday) and will act as a precursor to the Kathmandu Triennale 2020.

與 2020 年加德滿都三年展相仿,「一園六季」將同時於多個場地舉行,包括 Para Site 藝術空間的兩 層以及香港 Soho House 大型展覽空間,不僅擴大敘事範圍,同時也增加與觀眾的接觸層面。Para Site 藝術空間亦會在展覽期間同時開展多個網上公眾項目,其中包括 VR 展廳、影片導覽、由策展人與參展藝術家主持的網上直播座談會。更多資訊將在 Para Site 網站上發佈,詳情請參閱 https://www.para- site.art/ 。

Mirroring the Kathmandu Triennale 2020, “Garden of Six Seasons” takes place across multiple venues, Para Site’s two floors and a larger exhibition space at Soho House Hong Kong, which expands the narrative while increasing its accessibility. Reaching out to a wider community and audience, Para Site will curate a series of digital programmes alongside the exhibition which include a VR viewing room, video tours and live panel discussions with the curator and exhibiting artists.

「一園六季」匯集當今活躍的多重美學和宇宙學派,包括尼泊爾的帕巴(Paubha)繪畫、東亞的水墨 太平洋地區的樹皮藝術、以及被歐洲中心化教規邊緣化的其他語言。 相比佔主導地位的傳統,展覽著 重強調來自社群的物質和媒體,這些社群多受到了自己(通常是後殖民時期)國家內部殖民的影響。 通過探索製圖的族譜,「一園六季」就代表性和藝術語言進行討論。族譜會因應領土和文化,繪製的 內容也有所不同,內容有時是對整個宇宙或人體內部(有時在同一張地圖中)的描述及對地球導航和 修復身體的工具的描繪。展覽將探討治療和醫學的過程,與人類如何表達與身體外部與內在現實之間 的緊密聯繫,以確定文化如何定義系統中的功能障礙和疾病,並想像治療的過程。

The exhibition brings together multiple aesthetic and cosmological lineages active today and discusses appropriate frameworks for their understanding, including paubha painting in Nepal, or ink in East Asia, as well as other languages marginalised by a Eurocentric canon. Looking beyond these dominant art canons, the exhibition also includes a genealogy of map-making, from the depiction of the whole universe to the inner human body (sometimes in the same map), instruments for navigating the Earth and healing the body. Garden of Six Seasons is crucially interested in indigenous knowledge that is active and subversive, working towards the upending of patriarchal structures and dominant national frameworks, creating a new global solidarity of places and communities of resistance.
