「光」作為當代資訊媒體的傳輸方式,是21世紀記載真實與歷史的見證者,也是大眾已經習以為常的生活片斷。當光記載著人們一切的訊息,光將如何書寫當下「藝術」的真實?資訊時代下的藝術之主體,被海量光速的訊息沖刷著,並洗去靈光的神聖性,此時藝術已經不是藝術,藝術將再生式的重新面對大眾的視野,這種重新開始的方式,就如同藝術失去靈光後,從黑暗再度升起的過程,其過程類比「日出」般,將大地樣貌重新付予新的顏色,這種不安定與模糊的輪廓,以日出的光線緩緩而出,仿佛宣告真實的重組,也給予人們感知的破壞,使感知在當下已經無法定義好壞,如同「悸動」這個感知的狀態,可能是「驚訝」,也可能是「讚嘆」,因此大內藝術節年度主題《日出的悸動》,試圖重新思考藝術與大眾之間的關係。

《日出的悸動》以華特班雅明之著作《迎向靈光消逝的年代》,所提及藝術獨一無二性的逝去為基礎,以「靈光消逝之後是否將有另一種光亮重新開始?」為疑問,依據「靈光之後的光」做為新生的日出,實踐藝術與大眾之間的可能性,在藝術節中也以光的特性,引用羅蘭巴特於《明室‧ 攝影札記》提到解讀光載的兩種方式「知面」與「刺點」,試圖重組大眾對於藝術的「知面」,以達到其擁有深刻的「刺點」,藝術節將以五感「視覺、聽覺、嗅覺、味覺、觸覺」,來重組大眾對於知面的轉變,並且拉近大眾與藝術之間的距離。

「視覺」透過不同的年齡層,以影展的方式策劃「影像的再造─錄像動畫影展」。「聽覺」以聲音影片作品為主題,串聯11家畫廊策劃「聲影碎形─音像藝術展」。「嗅覺」試圖以嗅覺延伸出「對於生活中的敏銳度」,結合主展場,策劃主題展「不在場的氣息」,以生活環境為主題,探討當下人們面對生活環境的挑戰。「味覺」則是透過藝術家走進店家對話的方式,策劃「藝術食糧計劃」。「觸覺」以科技產業結合購物中心,以行動美術館的方式,策劃「科技漫步─互動藝術特展」,透過互動藝術,讓大眾直接觸摸藝術,與藝術創作互動。

藝術節希望透過五感的再詮釋,試圖讓一般大眾可以更瞭解藝術在當下的不同面貌,增加其知面,並試著創造更多的刺點,找尋靈光之後,藝術所發出的那一道光亮。

In 2014, Taipei Art District, TAD, was formed by 15 art galleries and art institutions spread within Dazhi and Neihu districts. Since then, TAD members have jointly been aiming to develop a creative neighborhood and art district in Taipei city, hence infusing more aesthetics into daily life.    

“Sunrise Heartbeat” is the curatorial theme for the 2016’s edition of TAD Festival that curator Luo He-Lin and Co-curator Huang Yi-Hsiung chose as a furtherance of “Sleepless Dwelling” – the main theme of TAD Festival in 2015 –, thus extending the intervention of art into Dazhi and Neihu areas from night to dawn. The curatorial theme focuses on five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Over 30 participating artists exhibiting at more than 20 exhibition spaces will attempt to use elements of daily life to create a throbbing moment of artistic encounter, as well as to narrow down the gap and to rethink the relationship between the public and the arts.     

“Sight” will present video works of artists of different generations at the “Recreating Image – Video and Animation Exhibition.” “Hearing” will show videos with sound at fourteen galleries at the “Seeing Sound – Audiovisual Art Exhibition.” “Smell” will aim to use the sense of smell to extend the acuity of life at the exhibition “Absent Breath”, which will focus on the environment as the main theme to explore the challenges people face nowadays. “Taste” will invite artists to collaborate with various shops to create artworks as part of the “Art-Food Project.” “Touch” will allow the audience to directly interact with artworks at the “Strolling Along Science and Technology – Interactive Art Exhibition.”

Art district has been formed with the purpose of increasing the participation of the general public, shops and enterprises of these districts. This formation resulted in two strategies to be implemented: first, shaping connectedness of major points through the breadth of artistic interventions and linking exhibition and performance spaces by organizing art bus tours as well as by inviting the residents of these areas and VIP guests of the art fair to experience firsthand the artistic atmosphere of TAD. Interactive new media art displays, public art lectures and performances will be hold in collaboration with large shopping malls and smaller shops, thus aiming to build up the fixed mode of cooperation between art and shopping mall stores.  

TAD seeks to link up art with life, to bring it to streets and daily life, and to make it sharable among the public. It attempts to provide a better understanding to the general public of different aspects of art and to show the light transmitted by art through the re-interpretation of the five senses.
