許哲瑜 Che-Yu Hsu

1985年出身於台北,許哲瑜於台南藝術大學取得其創作碩士學位。爾後的他於台灣各大小美術獎項上似乎無往不利,包括第14屆台新獎、高雄獎、全美展新媒體類金牌獎、以及桃源創作獎等。

許哲瑜主要的創作靈感來自現實生活,或許是新聞事件、歷史文化、甚或是個人自身記憶,利用他創作的一男一女動畫角色,在不同作品中推展出不同故事情節,並藉由其故事闡述現實的荒謬和虛擬。他的創作啟發部分來自台灣網路上以動畫敘述新聞事件而聲名大噪的蘋果動新聞,該媒體利用浮誇惡趣味的方式,讓觀看者能夠輕易地了解新聞內容。然而事實上,儘管浮誇的動畫確實吸引到許多閱聽大眾,然而內容卻與事實有所距離,甚至相距甚遠,以至於達到反效果。如今,當出現兇殺或情色新聞事件時,觀眾期待的是腥羶色的視覺娛樂,而這跟新聞的本質,抑或事實是脫節且失焦的。弔詭的是,日常生活中這些外來的訊息或失真的片段,往往取代真實而成為我們記憶的一部分。而究竟所謂的「真實」和「虛構」的差別是什麼?這是藝術家所提出來的問題。

Born in 1985 in Taipei, Taiwan. Che-Yu received his Master degree from Tainan National University of the Arts. Che-Yu then had won most of the major awards in Taiwan, including Taishin Arts Award 14th, Kaohsiung Award. The Gold Medal of New Media Art of Nation-Wide Award, and Taoyuan Creation Award.

Most of his artworks are adapted from reality, it could be news, history, or personal memory, from which he creates a male and a female animated model to play as the main characters in different stories, and attempting to state the fallacy of reality and virtuality. The inspiration is originally from a Taiwanese media company called ”Apple Daily", known for its' animated news. “Apple Daily" represents each news story exaggerated so the audience could easily absorb the content. Although the exaggerated animation does attract a large audience, the content is actually not true to reality, causing an opposite effect from the initial purpose. Today, while we are watching the animated news representing a murder or rape, we are expecting “entertainment” and “excitement” which have nothing to do with the reality anymore. Paradoxically, all these distorted messages in everyday life often replace reality and become part of our memory. What is the difference between so-called "reality" and "fabrication"? This is an issue raised by the artist.
