簡介 INTRODUCTION

關渡自然公園徵求關注地方或全球環境議題的藝術家,參與2016關渡國際自然藝術季「來自真實的故事」,收件截止日為2016年7月20日(延長至7月31日)。本藝術季計畫徵選五位藝術家,利用約七週時間進駐關渡自然公園,使用自然素材或友善環境材料,現地創作能傳遞環境意識的作品。

關渡自然公園自2006年起每年舉辦關渡國際自然裝置藝術季,至去年剛好滿十周年。此藝術季是臺灣第一次有大型環境藝術計畫發生在一座以保育為出發點的自然公園,活動紮根於生態保育價值與豐富河口文化的關渡濕地,以自然藝術為媒介,打造人與藝術、自然的對話空間,探討「人與自然的關係」這門重要課題,期望能為現代社會與與自然相處的失衡狀態找回平衡點。

從2016年開始,本計畫將以「關渡國際自然藝術季」為名,邁向下一個新階段。站在十年基礎上,關渡國際自然藝術季將繼續探討邁向永續未來的可能性,並且以主動積極的方式邀請大家一同為打造這樣的未來具體行動。我們將採取「傾聽、連結、共生」三步驟為執行策略,並且在地域上以「淡水河流域」為長期關懷主題。2016年,我們將會聚焦於理解自然中真實的狀況。

Guandu Nature Park is inviting entries to 2016 Guandu International Nature Art Festival “Based on a True Story” in Taipei, Taiwan. The selected 5 artists will create their artworks in a natural setting using only natural or eco-friendly materials during a 7-week residency in the Guandu Nature Park. Artists who are concerned about local and global environmental situations are welcome to apply before the deadline on July 20th 31st, 2016.

Guandu Nature Park has held the Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival for the past 10 years (2006-2015). This event is Taiwan’s first large-scale environmental art project held in a nature conservation park. It is rooted in Guandu wetland which is rich in estuary culture and ecological value. The aim of this annual Festival is to create dialogues between people, art and nature. Through the discussion of our relationship with the natural environment, we hope to restore the balance between modern society and nature.

From 2016, our project title is changed into the Guandu International Nature Art Festival. On our existing foundation, we will keep on exploring the possibilities for a sustainable future and adopting a more proactive approach to ask people to take action for this future. There will be a 3-step strategy: to comprehend, to connect, and to coexist. In 2016, we’re going to put emphasis on comprehending the real situation of nature.

主題 THEME

自然透過許多方式與我們溝通:視覺、聲音或各種物理現象。今年,我們選擇「來自真實的故事」為年度主題,希望邀請大家用心傾聽大自然的呢喃細語,解讀她無時無刻透露出的各種線索與訊息。我們邀請藝術家與致力於濕地生物多樣性保育的關渡自然公園研究人員合作。在研究人員的協助下,藝術家將先進行約十天的田野訪查,了解關渡在生態、歷史與文化上的各種故事,接著在關渡自然公園選擇適當的地點,於一個月的創作期打造一件可以幫助大眾理解真實環境狀況的作品。

我們可引用生物學家愛德華.威爾森(E. O. Wilson)所採用的縮寫"HIPPO",來歸納我們所關注對於生物多樣性威脅的議題:棲地破壞(habitat loss, H)、外來入侵種(Invasive species, I)、汙染(Pollution, P) 、人口成長(Population growth, P) 、過度採集(Overharvesting, O)。我們鼓勵藝術家選擇詮釋其中一個特定議題,結合田野訪查的結果來設計作品,田野訪查的結果可來自於藝術家自己現地收集,或是由關渡自然公園研究人員提供。

Nature speaks to us in many ways - visually, audibly, or physically. This year, we choose the theme “Based on a True Story” in hope to listen carefully to the hidden messages behind what we perceive. We invite artists to cooperate with our research staff who devoted to the management and conservation of wetland biodiversity. With the help of our researchers, artists will first have a 10-day field study to better knowing the ecological, historical and cultural situations of Guandu and then choose a proper location in Guandu Nature Park to create site-specific artworks in 30 days that can enhance the public to comprehend the actual environmental situations around us.

We can further summarize issues we concern by adopting biologist E. O. Wilson’s acronym for the threats to biodiversity: HIPPO. HIPPO stands for habitat loss (H), invasive species (I), pollution (P), population growth (P), and overharvesting (O). Artists are encouraged to interpret a specific issue through combining field study result and their artwork. The field study result can come from themselves or the Park’s research.

關渡自然公園位於淡水河與基隆河交匯處,擁有廣闊的草澤、埤塘等完整濕地環境,吸引許多生物駐足居住,生物多樣性相當豐富,又因地理位置成為許多候鳥每年遷徙途徑的必經之地,是國際鳥盟列屬的重要鳥類棲息地。自然公園目前由臺北市政府委託社團法人台北市野鳥學會(簡稱台北鳥會)經營管理,致力於濕地生態和野鳥的保育工作。

園區內部分區域開放給民眾參觀,但大部分的區域一般民眾無法進入。這些未開放的區域一直被保護著,以供鳥類以及其他野生生物的棲息保育區,民眾可以透過望遠鏡來觀察這些生物,也可以藉由特定的導覽解說行程進入部分管制區域。園區提供許多教育課程,給民眾與大自然之間互動的機會,學習環境保育的重要性。

主要設施區是關渡自然公園主要對大眾開放的區域,有入園開放時間與門票,區域內包含自然中心、賞鳥小屋、埤塘、步道與其他教育設施。在此區域有多處位置可選擇設置作品(徵選期間歡迎藝術家聯繫我們安排場勘)。

Located at the junction of Tamshui River and Jilong River, Guandu Nature Park is a nature park of wetland preservation with landscape consisting of an integrated wetland environment of swamp and pond. It is a great inhabitation for a rich variety of organisms, as well as an important pass-by stop for migratory birds in their annual migration route. Hence, it has been recognized by BirdLife International as an “Important Bird Area” (IBA). The park, authorized by Taipei City Government, is currently administrated under the Wild Bird Society of Taipei (WBST) and devotes care to wetland and wild birds’ conservation.

Some parts of the Park are open for general public to visit, but most areas are preservation for birds and other wild creatures which are restricted for public access. Visitors can observe these wild creatures via telescope or attend the guided tour arranged by the Park in order to visit the restricted areas. In addition, the Park has designed many environmental education programs that give opportunities to people to interact with nature and acknowledge the importance of environmental preservation.

We will select 5 artists to create his/her installation in the main area of Guandu Nature Park. Main Area is the region of the Park which opens for the public with admission hours and fees. It includes the Visitor Center, birdwatching cabins, ponds, trails, and other educational facilities. There are various sites to choose in Main Area.
