【不再‧不在-國際當代藝術聯展】作品介紹(II)

        在台灣,及許多國家中,男孩子服兵役,是成為男人的重要儀式。當過兵的男人才是真正的男人,同時也才能被認可為一個真正的成人。當兵的訓練,就是讓一個男孩徹底體認自己這一生身為男性該扮演的角色,應有的舉止,應負的責任與應有的男性思維。一個男孩在軍隊中通過種種訓練與考驗,達到這個社會定義男性角色的各種標準(英勇、強壯等),才算成人。簡單地說,先成為男人,才能算是一個人。性別意識是決定一個男性存在價值的重要條件。

        這組作品是以藝術家的朋友要當兵前的片段生活為主題,試圖用影像的張力,來凸顯一個男性面對當兵這件事的心情起伏。作品很少拍到主角的正面,也看不到寫實的紀錄,而是透過影像後製的手法,以夢境般的色調來傳達主角內在的情緒起伏與情感波動。作品企圖表達,即使一個男性可以在外在樣貌上完全屈服於社會的要求(髮型、服裝),但內在的陰柔氣質卻無法造作。性別的標準並非絕對性,而是相對性,或者是根本無標準。陰性與陽性可以同時存在於一個軀體中,共生共存。





       In Taiwan, as in many countries, perfroming mandatory military service has been considered as a kind of “rite of passage” from boy to man. The man who has served in the army is a “real man”, additionally, a real adoult who can carry responsibilites commited by the society.

       The training of military intends to make a “boy” fully know the role he has to play as a male, as well as his responsibilites, behavior and thought required by the society. He will become a real man only when he has passed all the trainings and test in the military and has reached the standard of a male-role defined by the society, like being brave, strong and fighting fit…

       In general, a boy must become a “man” at first, in order to be recognized as an adoult. In other words, gender identity is an important reference to define the social state of a human being.

       Background story of the submitted works is based on the true experiences of a Taiwanese boy who was experiencing the process of attending in the army. This is not just a documentary of an event or an issue, but a series of conceptual photography in order to reflect the emotional aspect of a boy who is becoming a man. Among the photos, one can hardly see the face of the boy, however, his true feeling and emotion are revealed through dreamlike color schemes.

       With this series of work, The Journey into Mannhood, Kan Yihao means to say that a man can make a masculine appreance to match the socal expectation, while his mind and soul remains feminine. There is no absolute definition of gender. Masculine and Femine are allowed to be in the same body of a human being.
