Sun Moon Lake is a Concrete Box 

日月潭是一個水泥盒


Expending Cinema, 2020

‘On days that we couldn't go out, I would sit on the floor, looking out the windows. They are rose- coloured from layers of heavy film pressed between layers of thick glass to keep us safe. Any landscape would look romantic through that tint. But our view of the river was blocked by an abandoned waste-treatment plant; my gaze could only trace the curves of rusty steel pipes that carried a river of human faeces from the city to the plant underneath the old public park, where it looped round and round in something like a giant robot’s intestines. But that flow stopped a long time ago...’

Artists Xia Lin (Taiwan) and Sheryl Cheung and Liam Morgan (Canada) take us on a journey that meditates on the natural environs and then a haptic chamber of light-, film-, sonic- and plant- installation. A reflection on days past, a dwelling on the uncertain present, an intimation into a physically-distant yet familiar future.

「這些需閉門以策安全的日子,我會坐在地板上,透過厚重的玫瑰色玻璃窗向外望,任何景色都能這樣被染得浪漫。眼前是佇在那兒的現實,河川旁一棟污水處理廠環繞著蝕鏽的金屬水管,順著水管及混凝土包裹在其中,大量的污水被都市驅逐,直抵上層的公園。我似乎見到了一條巨大的人造腸道,盡責且日復一日執行著它的任務......循環往復,只是,裡頭的流動,似乎在很久很久以前,就已經失去了生氣。」

來自臺灣的林亭君與加拿大的張欣、利安・摩根(Liam Morgan),將領著你我走一遭心理、地理與物 理的環境下的冥想移動,觸碰植栽裝置、觸碰聲響、撫摸影像、撫摸光,承接過去幾個月的千秋景況, 《日月潭是一個水泥盒》將延展這個現實,進入一則關於「社交距離」的現世寓言,在地表之外的空間 想像我們的未來。
