Documentary XI
The X Mission

This work records the process of providing emergency treatment to a sow experiencing a difficult labor.It also speaks to the artist, who, in providing emergency treatment while carrying out the X mission, feels a strong sense of intrusion and being intruded, and a state in which she searches for desires of some kind.

Midwifery SOP – Covering hands with lubricant and sticking them into the mother’s body for the rescue. Visual presentation features oiliness and stickiness. These impressions, along with pain, are the ones experienced by the artist strongly while carrying out midwifery for the sows. This documentary portrays bodily experiences through visualization – ones that the artist has no other way of describing. It also implies a sort of restlessness inside the artist, who is paralyzed by the excessive information in today’s society. It finally draws a collective lesson for the society to call for an emphasis on life.

紀錄片XI – X 任務

 X任務-記錄在接生母豬時所遇到的難產急救過程。

此回急救過程,我刻意採用肌肉線條明顯-男性的手臂(我爸的手),畫面中母體排斥著侵入自身的外物,使得手臂在母體內不斷的被強烈發燙肉體緊緊壓迫著,導致肌肉線條呈現緊繃明顯,紀錄出接生過程中的緊張壓迫感。

 採用鏡射的畫面,將母體藏在盡頭來記錄我在急救過程中,手臂總是在發麻失血往往無感的狀態下,仍必須在摸不著盡頭、看不見的熱燙肉體裡,尋覓著期盼的生命與希望到來,而作品中段,在鏡頭中線吊出小豬的魔幻畫面,紀錄出接生過程中總是擁有許多的神秘感與騷動。

 鏡射的畫面,對應對照著同樣也為女性的我自身在難產急救過程中,手伸入母體內強烈感受到的侵入感與被侵入感,該交錯雙重複雜的感受讓人彷彿進入自身本體內搜尋著某種愛與慾望。 此紀錄片中因接生前標準程序-需將手塗滿潤滑液後再進入母體內搶救,使得畫面呈現出油膩黏稠的視觸感,這些的視觸感、黏稠感與痛感是我在接生難產母豬過程中,強烈地感受到的,希望藉由視覺來記錄出這些難以描述的身體經驗,並勾勒出共同經驗,警惕生命。
