Speaking Sessions

吉田憲史是一位日本藝術家,他利用翻譯以及誤翻的狀態,探索不同語言、文化及語境間的關聯。他的作品常常會同時處理兩種或兩種以上的語言,或不同文化差異的人。除了諷刺社會政治的摩擦或情境,也探索在語言和濫用語言障礙間的另類辯證中,所拋出的其他功能和人類的可能性。他的「(不)可能對話〉系列就是一個很好的例子,他邀請兩位講不同語言的人進行對話。過程中當然充滿誤解,但表演中卻看到兩者的共通處。2017年他開始跟泰國藝術家宛丹尼.西里帕土那努塔庫合作,他們以簡單的表演形式,處理複雜且多樣的主題。

Qenji Yoshida is a Japanese artist who utilizes translation and a state of being lost-in-translation in order to explore in contacts between different languages, cultures and contexts. His practice often deals two or several linguistically or culturally distant people at the same time. The intention is not only to caricaturize socio-political frictions or situations but also to explore a human potential and functions of language casted from intentional misuse of languages and language barriers in order to reach alternative dialectic beyond different subjects. His series (im)possible dialogue is a good example where he invites two people who have no language in common to have a dialogue. Of course the dialogue contains full of misunderstandings but the performance still reveals commonness between two people. From 2017 he started collaboration with Thai Artist Wantanee Siripattananuntakul. In collaboration they deal with more complex and multiple topics in a very simple form of performance.
