Composing the ridiculous but harmonious Utopian atmosphere of
Wu Chiung Chuen
Chinese landscape painting practice
ecology and environment protection
Although cutting-edge technology from Western land has boosted development of human society greatly, some negative problems have also followed the way, such as environmental pollution, unbalanced ecology system, the destroyed ozone hole, the acceleration of green house effect etc. These serious problems are alerting humankind about the drop of living quality as well as the fighting-back of the mighty nature. All of these are indicating the unbalanced relationship between human and the society, human and the nature, and humankind themselves. In recent years, ecological crisis in Taiwan includes over-using/building on lands/mountain slopes, improper-using on mudflows-alerting area etc., which are destroying the ecological system seriously. These social/ecological/environmental problems are emerging in an endless stream, which contributed to other issues like: materialization and alienation of people’s mind, isolation, disorder of values and ethic. The world has become ridiculous gradually. The piece ‘Ridiculous’ is trying to show the condition of ‘unsatisfied with technological control and distorted humanity’. It unveils the conflict between irrational states in the world and humankind’s pursuit of rational condition. Living philosophy and attitude shown by ‘Ridiculous’ unveils our consciousness toward the living surroundings; kind of meaning of lives for self-value is created; the emerging self-reviewing phenomenon stimulates the audience to pursue real lives. ‘Ridiculous’ originated from lives, yet arts cannot be separated from lives. Therefore, arts also reflect ‘ridiculous’ spontaneously. Using Chinese landscape painting practice and importing the expectation of atoning function of arts, this research is trying to transform the expectation to a Utopian perspective, which could stimulate the humanity; it would uncover people’s mutual experiences/perception in the time by symbols in order to arouse echoes and inspirations from the audience. This paper is showing the researcher’s experience at the moment and unknown expectation. The researcher also tried to challenge the innovation of materials and forms; she hopes to discover more potential prototypes in daily lives by practice, projecting self-consciousness by images. Moreover, the works transmits wits and reminds us the importance of humanity thinking toward ecological system. Furthermore, the artistic practice would be infused some echoes and feedback from the experience of ‘humanity materialization’; the living condition would be promoted and display the important value of the painting form.
