    駐歐洲特派記者胡蕙寧╱倫敦報導

    由倫敦藝術大學台灣會與校友們合組成的「福爾摩沙團隊(FORMOSA team)」,策畫一項名為「Ban-Doh.辦桌」的台灣藝術設計聯展,即將在倫敦Angel地鐵站的Candid Arts Trust Gallery正式開展。

    「辦桌」台灣藝術設計聯展,由國際專業評審團於200多件作品中評選出21位、總計40件佳作,包括剛拿下前衛時裝獎的古又文、插畫家趙敏慈、服裝設計師劉美惠、藝術家優席夫以及旅英藝術家高翎婷等人作品,都將同時展出。

    該展覽除展現台灣文化之外,也強調以作品的原汁原味與觀眾對話。如古又文將首次在倫敦以靜態方式展出他的得獎作品〈Emotional Sculpture〉。旅居愛丁堡的台灣阿美族藝術家優席夫(Yosifu),將以色彩鮮明的人物姿態探討台灣本土歷史文化,其作品〈Can’t Speak〉就是訴說40到90年代間,台灣政府所頒布的「說國語運動」對非國語族群所造成的影響。

    「辦桌」台灣藝術設計聯展將於6月9日到13日在倫敦開席。

    Ban-Doh.辦桌,一個具備了三百多年傳統,隨著福建先民飄洋過海的台灣文化。
    過去的台灣,農村社會每逢年節婚慶,父老們敲鑼打鼓、婦女們洗手作羹湯、動員全村,只為獻上一桌桌豐盛美味的佳餚,好在有朋自遠方來之時,拿出最誠摯的真心款待。經過時代的潮流以及文化的變革,辦桌逐漸融合傳統與現代,紅色圓桌上的料理不再僅是滿漢全席,出現了來自遠洋的新鮮菜色。這些異國料理,又經過廚師的巧手,化身為一道道台灣獨有的鄉土味。隨著時空歷練,辦桌文化,如今在台灣現代化都市中逐漸消聲匿跡,偶爾在人情味濃厚的鄉鎮中,才能窺見它紅色的歡騰身影。
    文化在變,可其中不變的,卻是根深蒂固的台灣人文氣息。辦桌呈現的,是最純樸且純粹的台灣人情味,也最直接而毫無保留的反映台灣對於傳統與當代、本土與外來文化的兼容並蓄。這樣一項獨特的文化精神,便是 University of Arts London Taiwanese Society(UALTWS) 與 FORMOSA team,倫敦藝術大學台灣會,策劃「Ban-Doh.辦桌 @ FORMOSA」展覽最初的中心思想。
    經歷日本殖民文化、國民政府遷移、中西文化交流、還有現代化與科技的衝擊,台灣的藝術設計長久以來備受多方影響。從過去數十年的學院派美術教育、到今天自由奔放的創意發想和自我認同的藝術價值深省,台灣新新藝術家和設計師的創作,就宛如負責統籌辦桌活動的總舖師,在承襲百年傳統的之際,不忘將當代新鮮概念融入每一道菜色,最後,端出一盤盤嶄新的感官盛宴。「Ban-Doh.辦桌 @ FORMOSA」 期望探討的,便是這麼一個從外在—多元文化影響—到內在—獨立個體思想—經過藝術家、設計師自我融合轉化後,演繹而出的當代能量。這是 UALTWS 與 FORMOSA team 將這一次的展覽命名為「Ban-Doh.辦桌」的主要原因。
    自2009年夏天結成至今,FORMOSA team 一直希望與當代創作文化連結,讓年輕的創意勢力能就透過 FORMOSA team 的雙手,以倫敦為第一步,讓台灣的當代創意在不久的將來,在世界的舞台嶄露光芒。因此,2010年由 UALTWS和 FORMOSA team 聯合策畫的「Ban-Doh.辦桌 @ FORMOSA」,以飲食文化為媒介,從發想到執行,自徵件至選作,以及最後展覽呈現的完美裝盤, UALTWS 和 FORMOSA team 都抱持著當初先民動員全村辦佳餚的精神,邀請台灣新新藝術家和設計師一同拿起鍋碗瓢盆下海掌廚。我們不限定主題、不問背景、更不隨波逐流,給予藝術家和設計師最大的空間,讓來自台灣的創意相互拌炒,回到讓創作者發聲、與觀眾對話的原汁原味。讓大家一起探討、分享傳統和當代之間的拉扯與平衡。同時,令策展者、參展者、觀展者三方重新思考關於藝術家、設計師以及策展人在展覽中擔任的角色,還有創作者與策展人在策展過程中的交錯關係。
    為此,UALTWS與 FORMOSA team 特別邀請六位不同領域的藝術設計工作者,包括 jotta 首席策展人Ellie Greig,jotta 視覺設計部門負責人 Jane Trustram,以及倫敦藝術大學 Curation Society 負責人 Rayne Perry,和來自 FORMOSA team 的服裝設計師、還有在倫敦執業的台灣獨立策展人,來擔任選件評審,透過他們的經驗, 在兩百多件作品、近百位藝術家、設計師中,評選出涵蓋視覺藝術、插畫、攝影、工業設計、服裝設計、珠寶設計、影像藝術、空間藝術、建築等多樣創意藝術領域的作品,將「Ban-Doh.辦桌」精神娓娓道來。讓他們和 UALTWS 與 FORMOSA team 一同敲鑼打鼓、「飲藝術,食設計」、辦出一桌珍味佳餚,在倫敦這個全球文化創意產業的首都,款待來自世界各地的親友與貴客。
    由 UALTWS 與 FORMOSA team 合作的「Ban-Doh.辦桌 @ FORMOSA」台灣新銳藝術設計聯展,誠摯的感謝所有參予活動與執行展覽的創意新勢力。其中,我們又特別要感謝在我們一無所有、辛苦起步時,對我們伸出援手、給予支持的Sheng Yu Property、Taipec Ltd、Singtax 、Our Travel等多位好朋友,駐英國台北代表處新聞組和文化組的指導,PDAetc的協辦,倫敦時報等媒體的支持,以及一向大力支持新銳藝術家與設計師的jotta與University of Arts London Students’ Union。沒有他們,UALTWS 與 FORMOSA team 無法順利完成企劃,更無法將參與企劃的台灣創作者介紹給英國與全球,他們每一位都是「Ban-Doh.辦桌 @ FORMOSA」計畫中,不可或缺的合作夥伴。

    駐歐洲特派記者胡蕙寧╱倫敦二日報導

    英國「Formosa 福爾摩沙」企畫推動的台灣藝術國際化,在五月開辦第一場「辦桌」展。活動籌資推動部門總裁嚴士育表示,目前收到超過40位設計師和藝術家約一百餘件作品,當中包含了倫敦藝術大學傑出的台灣學生林鈺倫與古又文等。

    英國福爾摩沙企畫在今年開始一系列為台灣設計人籌備展覽活動,第一場即將在倫敦舉行,之後會篩選出優秀作品參加九月的倫敦設計週,力推台灣創作走入國際市場。這個企畫是在去年由一群在英國學藝術與設計的台灣人所發起,目標是在歐洲與全球推廣台灣的藝術與設計。福爾摩沙企畫連結英國藝術學校最大的台灣社群UALTWS,加上英國台僑的贊助,以推廣台灣本土文化為宗旨。將推出一系列的展覽、活動及講座,當中包括了即將舉行的「辦桌」聯展、九月份的福爾摩沙設計展以及計畫中的時裝展和視覺藝術聯展。

    目前該企畫還在徵件中,只要具備台灣國籍,或是出身自台灣移民家庭的後代,以及有一定展覽經歷的藝術家,不限媒材,不限年齡全都歡迎。已報名的藝術作品部分已經在福爾摩沙網站公開,有興趣者可以先睹為快。http://www.theformosa.blogspot.com/
