黃韶瑩 Shao-Ying Huang

黃韶瑩以自身的角度反觀當代的社會,個體的身體是一個時代縮影。她認為「迷惘」是一種普遍世代的抽象情感。透過自我的狀態投射出這新時代的現象--「迷惘的一代(Lost Generation)」,又稱迷失的一代、失落的一代。而當迷惘作為一種抽象的狀態,黃韶瑩認為它的形成因素是非常龐大而且複雜,對於自身存在的疑惑下所形成的迷惘,也漫延到自我認同的不確定性、社會價值觀扭曲以及世代的焦慮感,甚至是個體的存在也必須依賴在具有某種政治性的他者所建立的認同標準上,從觀察事件後得到的現象,可以發現事件裡的人對待生命體的行為凸顯時代的迷惘現象,從這些不同層面的顯現,進行反思:是什麼樣的原因促成迷惘的構成?而社會迷惘可能的形狀是什麼樣子?最後,藝術家以藝術創作作為一種媒介轉化,呈現一種關於當代的環境與個體迷惘的關係下,所表現出的一種存在的現象,肉身迷惘可能的形狀。

In the contemporary society, the artist has come to the conclusion that an individual body serves as a microcosm for an era. She believes that “lost” is an abstract emotion common throughout all generations. Drawing on her own condition, Huang projects the phenomenon of this new era – the “Lost Generation”, also known as the missing or vanished generation. When lost is regarded as an abstract state, she believes that its formative elements become extremely immense and complicated. This confusion spurred by existential doubts has become a sense of uncertainty over self-identity, distorted social values, and an anxiety that stretches across generations. Even the existence of individuals must rely on recognized standards set by others through political means. The phenomenon obtained through observation indicates that human behavior towards life forms highlights the phenomenon of being lost in this era. Thus, introspection is conducted through the manifestations of these different layers: What causes a sense of confusion to develop? More so, what shape would social confusion take? Finally, with artistic creation as a conversion of media, the existential phenomenon and possible shape of physical confusion is presented through the contemporary environment and the state of individual confusion.
