「茻,眾草也」,是莽的異體字,其字意釋為叢生的草。亦有茂密、盛多或指民間、鄉野之意。 

當代人身體感與觀看方式的改變,慢慢將身體感與生活經驗演化成為一種不斷勞動重複性下的產物與痕跡,因此圖誌不只是圖像語言的傳達,更是反映、分享出我們對當代人日常生活的空間、行為的另一種理解路徑,不完整而細碎又似喃喃自語。亦嘗試透過簡單而易傳達的圖像,描摹台南城市景觀,紓緩個人潛在壓抑,同時尋求自我的狀態,由筆墨拋出線索,期待更深層的誘發。
林書楷為土生土長的台南人,大學及研究所在北部念書,之後便在台南持續創作;顏妤庭自2014年自台北遷來生活兩年;此次展出,在兩位的創作中都有鮮明的對象,林書楷描繪的城市空間、顏妤庭潔煉的人物觀察,成為有意思的對照,互相參照兩人材料,在腦海中堆疊輝映著台南市景樣貌。茻字詮釋出了圖像的渾沌、無序、簡化與輕鬆,圖誌則代表了創作過程中對圖像語言掌握的紀錄與表述,將原本較有嚴肅味道的「圖誌」,滲入隨意的節奏。圖像彼此之間具若有似無的連結跟對話,以不完整及想像的形象呈現,捕捉兩人在台南生活感受的種種細微觸目,為周遭的日常狀況、城市、空間帶進自身的不負責書寫與描摹。

Illustrated Treatise Of Folks 

“Mang (茻) – grass,” which is a variant form a Chinese character Mang(莽), meaning tufted grass. The word also signifies thickness, abundance, the folk or countryside. 

The change of the sense of contemporary body and the way of seeing things has been evolving the sense of body and living experiences into product and trace generated by constantly repeated labor. In this case, illustrated treatise does not merely indicate the expression of illustrated language, but in the meantime reflects and shares another path for perceiving space and behavior of daily lives leading by contemporary people. The path, on the other hand, appears incomplete, fragmental and like self-mumbling. The works try to depict views in Tainan city through simple and easily expressible illustration so as to relieve potentially personal oppression and seek the state of self. The artists leave clues through splashing paint, expecting deeper inducement. 

  Shu-Kai Lin was born and bred in Tainan. He got his bachelor’s and master’s degree in Taipei and continued art creation in Tainan. Yu-Ting Yen has been living in Tainan since she moved from Taipei two years ago. In the exhibition, we may notice that both artists have distinctive objects in their works. The city space illustrated by Shu-Kai Lin and the concise observation on people by Yu-Ting Yen become interesting comparison and provide effective reference for piling up the city landscape of Tainan in brain. The interpretation of the word “茻” (mang) shows the characteristics of illustration –chaos, disorder, simplification and easiness. Therefore, in the process of art creation, illustrated treatise stands for the record and the formulation in seizing illustrated language, inserting easier rhythm in originally solemn “illustrated treatise.” Faintly discernable connection and conversation are within illustrations, presented by an incomplete and imaginary image. The feature captures the details of daily life in Tainan, bringing their own irresponsible writing and delineation into daily situation, city and space around people.
