首先頒發的「視覺藝術獎」,由影像與新媒體藝術家李亦凡於2021年亞洲藝術雙年展作品《不好意思‧‧‧請問一下這個怎麼打開》獲獎李亦凡以遊戲引擎為創作工具,創造出幽默卻具議題探討性的影像敘事手法,得獎理由為:

《不好意思‧‧‧請問一下這個怎麼打開》以獨樹一格的黑色幽默,回應數位時代基因及其變異的記憶,在看似荒誕詭異的影像背後,組構著迷人的敘事技巧與腳本。李亦凡翻轉「機造電影」的歷史工具箱,巧妙地操控不受物理條件限制而扭動的自身人偶,機殼裡的鬼魂刺激觀者的身體感知,呢喃的自白讓人不自覺進入影像生產世界的內部。後人類的合成身體與虛擬實境建模語言的相互生成,反身性地揭露網路世代的另類真實,讓影像的流變與敘事語言得以解放。

第二個頒發「表演藝術獎」,身體氣象館人力飛行劇團共同製作於牯嶺街小劇場演出的獨腳戲《王子‧哈姆雷特》獲獎,得獎理由:

《王子‧哈姆雷特》以演員暨編劇楊奇殷的獨腳戲詮釋哈姆雷特,帶入臺灣318佔領運動,辯證思索反叛者種種抗爭的信仰、幻滅及其已被部署的權力處境。當語言從夢囈般的喃喃自語與猶豫不決,轉向成為對失效溝通媒介的絕望,身體便是劇場與政治舞台上消耗殆盡後、見證精神狀態的唯一殘留。導演王墨林一方面深度挖掘如黑洞般的文學經典與歷史政治,另一方面毫無迴避地面對存在之失重狀態,批判性地揭露身體的政治性,爆發出無政府主義的跨世代動能。

「年度大獎」則由人力飛行劇團《感傷旅行(kanshooryokoo)─當你前往南方我漫長的憂鬱變成一座用遺忘構成的西伯利亞》獲獎。導演黎煥雄以詩與散文的語境,透過崔台鎬的單人演出,牯嶺街小劇場空間的縱深延展,交融出一場戲劇、文學及政治的辯證之作。得獎理由:

《感傷旅行(kanshooryokoo)─當你前往南方我漫長的憂鬱變成一座用遺忘構成的西伯利亞》交疊小說家陳映真、小說人物及劇場人M的生命追索,成功展現臺灣當代劇場創作美學之遞嬗與轉譯。崔台鎬單人表演精準飽滿而內蘊自含,舞臺設計吳子敬開啟牯嶺街小劇場空間之複異性。導演黎煥雄呈現其生命歷程與臺灣小劇場運動、左翼歷史脈絡的連結交織,自省地重探前衛、現代性等理想及其失落,運用詩意精煉手法,開展多重「南方」意象與個人內在「北方」的辯證對話,直至鯨落。

巧合的是,今年得獎的二個表演作品,演出場地皆是在去年甫歷經三年整修後重新開幕的牯嶺街小劇場,在近年官方興建的大劇場、多功能劇場環伺下,資源有限、民間獨立經營的牯嶺街小劇場在重新打開之後交出漂亮的成果。而「人力飛行劇團」首次獲獎,即分別以獨立創作及與「身體氣象館」共同製作奪得年度大獎及表演藝術獎兩大獎項,為台新藝術獎以及台灣小劇場增添劃時代的意義!

決選主席鄭慧華致詞表示,全球的藝術獎項不計其數,台新藝術獎矗立其中仍不同凡響,她認為台新獎是目前全世界藝術獎項之中,幾乎是唯一一個不辭過程繁瑣的獎項,它的特殊,是長期關注在地文化生產、紮根地方性的視野,成就此獎項的精神,與作為其價值的基礎。

今年頒獎典禮再次邀請劇場導演李銘宸統籌,藍貝芝與馬維元分別擔任主持及司儀,典禮舞台以LED燈牆展現主視覺立體幾何畫面,凸顯當代數位科技設計感。現場亦首播「台新藝術獎20週年—榮耀時刻」以及「來自國際委員的祝福」影片,回顧藝術獎20年珍貴的歷史畫面以及國際委員對台新藝術獎的觀點與祝福。頒獎典禮中場演出,特別邀請有50年歷史、擅長融合傳統歌仔戲與爵士樂風音樂形式的「民權歌劇團大樂隊」,渾然天成的樂音鋪陳出輕鬆又別緻的慶典現場。

雖然頒獎典禮落幕,仍可透過「第20屆台新藝術獎」專網,觀賞線上揭曉直播影片,並追蹤了解所有入圍及得獎作品。

20th Taishin Arts Award –Guling Street Avant-garde Theatre Brings Home Two Awards with its Programs

Mr. Wing Theatre Company Reaps Abundant Rewards with A Journey towards Sentiment (kanshooryokoo) and Prince Hamlet

The 20th Taishin Arts Award announces the three laureates of its 20th iteration in a joyfully festive ceremony interspersed with nervousness which peaked at the moment of announcing the winners. The founder of the Award Chairman Thomas WU of the Taishin Holdings gave an opening remark. Pointing out that the 30th anniversary of the Taishin Bank coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Taishin Arts Award, he stated that “the Taishin Arts Award supports Taiwanese artists with substantial prize money, assisting artists to shine on the stage, while guiding the direction of the Taiwanese arts and cultural scene.” He especially expressed his gratitude to LIN Mun-Lee, a board member of the Taishin Bank Foundation for Arts and Culture, who suggested to establish the Award two decades ago, and has been the most vital force behind the Awards over the years. When revealing the Grand Prize winner, LIN also expressed rather touchingly that “throughout the past twenty years, whether the situation was favorable or not, Chairman WU has steadfastly and determinedly supported art so that the Taishin Arts Award can still exist today and continue marching into the future. Everyone, please join me and give Chairman WU and his wife the biggest round of applause!” Her words were indeed met by thunderous applause.

 

The seven-juror final selection committee of this iteration is chaired by Amy CHENG, together with two nomination committee members GONG Jow-Jiun and WANG Chun-Yen, as well as four external jurors, including CHANG Hsiao-Hung, KAO Chung-Li, CHANG Chi-Feng, and Eva LIN Yi-Hua. After a marathon of intensive discussion that lasted two days, and confirmed by the board of directors, the laureates of the Visual Arts Award and the Performing Arts Award, each with a prize money of NT$ 1 million, and that of the Grand Prize, with a prize money of NT$ 1.5 million, are finally announced.

 

The Grand Prize (NT$ 1.5 million prize money)

Mr. Wing Theatre Company / A Journey towards Sentiment (kanshooryokoo)─My Endless Melancholy Becomes Siberia Comprised of Oblivion After You Left for the Southern Villages

 

The Visual Arts Award (NT$ 1 million prize money)

LI Yi Fan / howdoyouturnthison ─ 2021 Asian Art Biennial

 

The Performing Arts Award (NT$ 1 million prize money)

Body Phase Studio & Mr. Wing Theatre Company / Prince Hamlet

 

The winner of the Visual Arts Award was announced first. This year, the Visual Arts Award goes to video and new media artist LI Yi Fan and his howdoyouturnthison─ 2021 Asian Art Biennial. Using game engine as his artistic instrument, LI created a humorous image narrative approach that is imbued with the potential to explore various issues. The jury committee gave the following comment regarding his work: “LI Yi Fan’s howdoyouturnthison responds to the genes of the digital age and its mutated memories with unique black humor. Behind the seemingly absurd and eccentric images, a fascinating narrative technique and its script are constructed. LI overturns the historical toolbox of ‘machinima,’ skillfully manipulating his avatar that wriggles without physical constraints. The ghost in the shell stimulates the viewer’s bodily perception, and its murmured confessions draw everyone to unconsciously enter the inner world of image production. The mutual generation of post-human body and virtual reality modeling language (VRML) reflexively exposes the alternative reality of the Internet generation, releasing the becoming of images and liberating the narrative language.”

 

The Performing Arts Award was announced next, and is awarded to Body Phase Studio and Mr. Wing Theatre Company for their co-production – Prince Hamlet, a solo performance staged at Guling Street Avant-garde Theatre. Regarding this work, the jury committee gave the following comment: Prince Hamlet is a solo interpretation of Hamlet by actor and playwright YANG Qi-Yin by bringing in the 318 Occupation Movement in Taiwan; it reflects on the beliefs and disillusion of the rebels’ various struggles and the deployment of power. When language shifts from dreamy mumbling and indecision to desperate despair with this ineffective communication medium, the body is the only remnant of the spiritual state witnessing the exhaustion of the theater and politics. On the one hand, director WANG Mo-Lin fathoms deep into the black hole of classics and political history, and on the other hand, he takes on the loss of gravity of existence without evasion, critically exposing the politics of the body with the exploding momentum of anarchists across generations.”

 

The Grand Prize was awarded to Mr. Wing Theatre Company’s A Journey towards Sentiment (kanshooryokoo)─My Endless Melancholy Becomes Siberia Comprised of Oblivion After You Left for the Southern Villages. With a context that was both poetic and prosaic, director LI Huan-Hsiung combined TSUEI Tai-Ho’s solo performance and the elongated, extending space of Guling Street Avant-garde Theatre to produce a dialectic work, interweaving drama, literature, and politics. The jury committee gave the work the following comment: A Journey towards Sentiment (kanshooryokoo)─My Endless Melancholy Becomes Siberia Comprised of Oblivion After You Left for the Southern Villages interweaves the life pursuit of CHEN Ying-Zhen as a novelist, his fictional characters, and theatre practitioner M in a skillful manifestation of the aesthetic succession and transformation of Taiwan’s contemporary theatre. TSUEI Tai-Hao’s precise, energetic, and self-contained solo performance is complemented by stage designer WU Zi-Jing’s attempt to unfold the multiplicity of the space in the Guling Street Avant-garde Theatre. Director LI Huan-Hsiung presents the interwoven relationship of his life journey with the little theatre movement and left-wing historical contexts in Taiwan, and introspectively explores the ideals and disillusions of the avant-garde and modernity. In a poetic, refined fashion, LI enacts the dialectics between the multiple images of ‘South’ and the inner ‘North’ until the ‘whale fall.’”

 

Coincidentally, the two award-winning performing arts works were both staged at Guling Street Avant-garde Theatre, which was only re-opened last year after three years of renovation. Comparing to government-funded, large-scale, and multifunctional theater spaces emerging in recent years, Guling Street Avant-garde Theatre, a privately run experimental theater with limited resource, has indeed achieved a great result after its re-opening. The first-time laureate, Mr. Wing Theatre Company, brings home the Grand Prize and the Performing Arts Award respectively with an independent production and a co-production with Body Phase Studio. Indeed, this achievement has an epoch-making significance to the Taishin Arts Award and Taiwanese experimental theater.

 

According to Amy CHENG, chair of the final selection committee, among countless art awards worldwide, the Taishin Arts Award stands out in an extraordinary way. To her, the Taishin Arts Award can be said to be the only art award around the world that has carried on consistently with such a complicated and thoroughly circumspective process. Its uniqueness lies in its long-term focus on local cultural production and a horizon deeply informed by localness, which have accomplished the spirit of the Award and formed the foundation of its value.

 

This year, the award ceremony is once again coordinated by theater director LEE Ming-Chen, and invites LAN Pei-Chih and MA Wei-Yuan for serving as the host and the master of ceremony respectively. The design of the ceremony stage uses an LED light wall to demonstrate the key visual elements and a geometric image, highlighting a sense of contemporary digital and technological design. In the award ceremony, the films of “The 20th Anniversary of the Taishin Arts Award – A Moment of Glory” and “Best Wishes from International Jurors” are broadcasted as a way to review the precious historical moments of the Award throughout the past two decades, as well as the perspectives of and best wishes for the Awards from the international jurors. For the mid-ceremony performance, the music band of the Minkuan Taiwanese Opera Troupe was invited to perform. Established fifty years ago and exceling at integrating traditional Taiwanese opera and jazz, their impeccable music filled the ceremony with a lighthearted and distinctive air.

 

Although the award ceremony has ended, it can still be enjoyed on the official website of the 20th Taishin Arts Award. We welcome you to watch the live-streaming film online, and get a deeper understanding of all the finalists and laureates.
