Disobedient Objects

26.7.2014 – 1.2.2015 V&A博物館正在展出的展覽Disobedient Objects在昨天開幕,在收到新聞通稿的時候,我並沒覺得這個展覽會讓我又怎麼樣的感觸,無非是出於例行公事的原因才參加了他們早上10點的媒體接待會 (還挺不情願的) 。但結果是在展廳看了2分鐘以後, 我變被這個展覽深深地震撼了, 不是打動,是震撼。展覽展出的是世界各地社會運動中使用的道具──這本來不會讓人想到與藝術或者設計會有什麼關係,但的確,所有展出的作品都是嚴格意義上的優秀的設計品和藝術品。我恍然覺得德拉克洛瓦《自由引導人民》的畫面便是這展覽最貼切的一個反應。雖然民主運動和政治事件往往並不讓人樂觀,充滿了對立的衝突、辯論、流血甚至是死亡,但策展者的角度和胸懷的確讓我欽佩,展覽中每件事物作品的背後,都有當時新聞報紙的剪報,配以採訪和影像等資料讓人很快就能理解當時事件的上下文關係,而且當時的參與者也會詳盡的告訴你為什麼要製作這些東西,這些東西又是怎麼來使用的。世界各地的運動都有包含,從英美到中日,從中東到南美,可以說涵蓋了全球的各類運動、學生抗議、女權運動、反核武器、反全球化、反各種戰爭、反各種不平等待遇、反各種貪污腐敗不一而足,但展覽卻是從一種極為積極的態度來看待這些本不平靜的事件,選擇的物品也都是極有代表性和影響力的。看到這些作品在感受當時各種複雜狀態的前提下,卻讓人不得不佩服人民大眾的智慧和幽默感,比如為了防止被警察拉走而設計的防驅散鎖筒,會快速噴塗標語的機器人塗鴉者,一語雙關指桑罵槐的標語版,都讓人忍俊不禁。讓我記憶極為深刻的是展覽背景上循環播放的視頻,記錄了各種事件發生現場的點點滴滴,而且大多是極為珍貴的歷史影像,其二就是非常黑色幽默的“反抗器材製作指導”,教授大家如何製作簡易但高效的各類器材、防毒面具、防催淚瓦斯藥劑、隱秘標示製作方法等等,讓人大開眼界而且對這些精巧設計不得不由衷的讚歎。這個展覽輕蔑的調侃了我們當下對藝術和設計的定義,舉重若輕地顛覆了溫文爾雅和咬文嚼字的策展規則。而且展覽免費。     The V&A will this summer present the first exhibition to explore objects of art and design from around the world that have been created by grassroots social movements as tools of social change. From Chilean folk art textiles that document political violence to a

電影預告可以說是劇情簡介,或是故事引導。大部份的預告中會濃縮那些最精彩的畫面,去吸引觀眾。 但電影海報呢?  如果今天在沒有看到預告的情況下,  電影海報應該如何忠於劇情的說故事呢? 今年奧斯卡頒獎典禮,  在每一次公佈得獎前,回顧入圍者的影片時,都為每個入圍者量身打造了許多精緻的設計海報,這是Mill+視覺設計公司和奧斯卡第三年的合作了。下面這九部入圍最佳影片的設計海報,每張都直接點出該片的故事重點,色調和整體設計也都更能打動人心。 雖然距離頒獎典禮已經結束一段時間了,但是看到這些海報時,卻能很容易的馬上勾起其中的劇情畫面。 多麼創意的電影海報設計啊。
