《放映間》內容收錄臺灣藝術家林羿綺2009-2020年間的影像作品,其創作關注的面向,包含歷史脈絡下的邊緣眷村場域再到東亞移民的離散經驗,藝術家考掘自身生命經歷與家族史料,解構記憶、夢境與口述傳說轉化為敘事文本,結合動態影像與空間裝置專長,創作出極具魅化風格的影像作品。透過學者針對作品脈絡的觀察書寫,並與影像、劇場、文學及藝術史領域的創作與研究者對談,解析靈感思維與創作細節,深度探尋林羿綺的創作世界。

書的構想來自於一場影像實驗,試圖將時基影像作品在平面書籍上印製出版,經由讀者的翻閱行為,進行紙上放映,讓影像作品得以遊走在銀幕以外,內頁更搭配以特銀與特黑兩色印刷呼應影像質地。「放映間」不只是播映場域的專有名詞,更是擴延影像載體的另一種實踐。

 

Between Screenings includes video works created by Taiwanese artist Yi-chi Lin between 2009 and 2020. We can see that Lin’s artistic practice centers around several subject matters, ranging from the marginalized realm of military dependents' villages in relation to the historical contexts to the migration experience in terms of diasporas in East Asia. The artist excavates her own life events and documentation of her family’s history for further investigation, and then deconstructs and transforms memories, dreams, and oral legends into narrative texts. Through Lin’s mastery of delicately bringing moving images and installation together, the style of her image-based creation shows an enchanting charm. It aims to explore Lin’s art universe in depth by dissecting the thinking behind each inspiring moment and by presenting a detailed analysis of her works. Critical writings on observations of her artistic trajectory by scholars are collected, as well as interviews between Lin and other professionals—both researchers and creative practitioners—in fields such as cinema, theatre, literature, and art history.

Conceptually inspired by a visual experiment, this book attempts to fashion time-based video works onto the two-dimensional pages of a printed publication. It can be seen as durational contents being played or screened as readers flip through the pages, which, in a sense, allows video works to wander off and exist outside the screen. “Between Screenings,” then, is no longer a term confined in a place for screenings to happen. It is further a type of practice as a medium for expanded cinema.
