About the Project:

Heritage Tour offers a complex, immersive spatial experience. The visitors would walk through a “Museum of Dark History” under the guidance of a hypnotist, and the itinerary takes 24minutes 16seconds. Here, the dark history refers not so much to the historical memories of any single event rather a composite of events, phenomena, and spaces in different times and places. The composite is displayed as cases in the tour. The narratives in the five chapters of this work are woven from the speeches of the hypnotist, the tour guide, and the ASMR, together with the audio-visual effect and the spatial installation. Its sources of reference include the Nazi concentration camp Sachsenhausen, the architectural proposal for a monument to the dark history, re-education camps, and Taitung Yenwan Rogue Detention Center.

The history of these jump cut-like links is not thoroughly studied, because Heritage Tour can neither trace the origin of history nor answer questions about history. The human mind has long oscillated between good and evil, hence the endless cycle of trauma and recovery. However, will these binary codes of morality remain binding when it comes to human nature, consciousness, and emotion? The script of Heritage Tour contains a long list of keywords, such as discipline, freedom, evil, recovery, labor, body-mind-spirit, respiration, softness, non-emotional materials, and monument. It embeds the unsolvable mystery of the dark history in a certain living condition of contemporary society – in the need for spiritual energy and self-healing. It seeks to transcend the rigid confines of historical baggage and moral code, directly using sensory perception and inner soul to grasp the past conserved as the “dark heritage.” By doing so, this work will finally immerse the spectators in a disciplinary space and leave the definition of “freedom” to their imagination therein.

《遺產之旅》

計畫簡介:

 

「遺產之旅」是一場複合式的空間沈浸體驗,全程24分16秒,藉由一位催眠師的引導,帶領觀眾走過一個「黑暗歷史博物館」的導覽行程。這段黑暗歷史並不鎖定於單一事件的歷史記憶,而是綜合了各個不同時空的事件、現象、現存空間等,以案例的方式呈現在導覽中的各個項目。在過程中透過催眠師、導覽員與ASMR三個人物的話語,以及聲光效果與空間裝置,編撰了五個章節的敘事內容。引用的參照項目有德國納粹時期的薩克森豪森(Sachsenhausen)集中營、黑暗歷史紀念碑的建築提案、再教育營、臺東岩灣浮浪者收容所等。

 

在這些跳躍式的連結中沒有深入的歷史研究,因為「遺產之旅」無法觸及歷史濫觴,更無助於解答歷史問題。人類的心靈長久以來在善與惡的兩端之間來回滾動,也讓創傷與療癒的歷程不斷重複,但若回到人性,進入意識與情緒,這些二元式的道德定義是否有效?「遺產之旅」透過多個關鍵字來貫穿劇本:規訓、自由、邪惡、療癒、勞動、身心靈、呼吸、柔軟、無情緒材料、紀念碑等。將黑暗歷史的無解之題放入當代社會的某種生活處境:某種追求心靈能量與自我療癒的需求。試圖在歷史包袱與道德框架之外,由最直接的身體感官與內在心靈途徑來理解這些已被編列為「黑暗遺產」的過去。透過這些風景的描述,最後,這個作品試圖換置觀眾的身體,在規訓的空間中想像「自由」的定義與投射。
