LAM Mei Fan

林美芬

LAM Mei Fan, Venus’s work lies in the grey between black and white, revolving around the fundamental nature of daily matters that we are so used to but unconscious of. They are mostly material-oriented to align with her investigation of the duality of subjects, including but not limited to paintings, sculptures and installations. The inextricable tie in between opposing natures and the accompanying obscurity and ambiguity are what being addressed in her discourse.

林美芬的創作遊走於黑白之間曖昧的灰,多以那些我們習以為常卻不以為意的瑣碎作養分,並涉獵繪畫、雕塑及裝置等媒介。所用素材本身對其作品尤為重要,因她習慣從事物本質去思考,發掘當中的雙重性,隨之而來的模梭與歧義便是其話語主軸。


The things you see in apple-pie order are more of arbitrary

你所見的井然有序不過是隨意相連

錄像裝置

以文字追逐所見,以影像追趕速度;紀錄與現實之間總有本質上的落差,使它逐漸脫離既有的線性時序並隨意地相連。我把影像、文字、聲音和事件所發生的時間從同一紀錄中分拆開來,任由它們分別循環播放。每個當下,它們既獨立又互相依存,從錯置的時間裡建構新的事件。


Chasing our sight with words and the speed with images, there is always discrepancy between archives and the recorded reality, causing it to gradually deviate from the linear temporality and fall into arbitrary relativity. I decompose a documentary clip into separate parts of image, sound, text and clock time, with each looping on its own. They are both independent and interdependent in every single ‘present’, constructing new events in, as well as by, the misplaced time.
