消失的聲音〔 〕 / Disappearing Sound〔 〕
Curator : Pu-Teng Chang
How can we think about and explore the silences that exist naturally without being heard, the silences that are ignored in contemporary society, or the voices that have been buried in history? This exhibition leads the audience to listen to the people who have disappeared, the things that have disappeared, and the landscapes that have disappeared at this moment. And let the audience fill in the blanks to imagine when and how the sound gradually disappeared, and how we can get it back.
American composer Pauline Oliveros explained: "Listening is the physical phenomenon that brings about perception, listening is noticing what is perceived". Listening is both auditory and psychological, so it includes the sound of the environment, the sound of memory, the sound of dreams, and even the sound of imagination or creation.
People felt isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sound is the most soothing medium at this time. Fortunately, we can hug and feel each other's warmth through sound. So in the post-epidemic era, how should we understand sound and understand the essence of its existence?
This exhibition invites the works of seven artists to exploring the void in the disappearing sound. And we invite everyone to fill in this missing blank.
