詩人就要有詩人的樣子

multi-channel video, 3’44’’

 

就像藝術家一樣,詩人是一個被極度典型化,浪漫化的概念。那麼這些形象是如何被建立起來的?作品的重心擺在了兩部較為主流的描述詩人的電影上,並截取了幾個比較標誌性的畫面:書本,紙張,筆,走路,大自然,讀詩等等。而作品另一個重要的組成部分,就是戀愛養成遊戲中的動漫少女的畫面。這些被截取出來的女孩以非常隨意的方式覆蓋在了詩人電影的畫面之上。

亞里士多德在《詩學》中曾經說過詩是描述按照可然律、必然律而必然會發生的事情的,在這一點上詩比歷史更加接近事物的本質。這些少女的畫面帶有很深刻的意旨,也是整個戀愛遊戲的中心──邂逅。這個在流動時間中的一幀畫面,直指愛的本質,那就是愛的必然性和偶然性。而正是這對於時間的指向以及對事物本質的捕捉,使得兩個看似突兀的畫面產生了新的意義。

 

Just like artist, poet is another concept that has been highly stereotyped and romanticized. But how is the image of a poet established? This work focuses on some major signifiers of a poet from commercial films: papers, books, pens, city wanderer and loner, etc. These clips are accompanied by pop-up girls from galgame (a type of Japanese video game centered on interactions with attractive anime-style girls).

 Aristotle stated in On Poetics that poetry is describing something that is supposed to happen (according to law of possibility and inevitability) in the future. And according to him, it is in this sense that poetry is much more closer to the essence of things than history. On the other hand, the girls in the galgame are also pointing at something in the future, which is at the same time the core of love – encounter. The seemingly unrelated elements are thus put together to generate new viewing experience.
