​魚 Fish

2019, HD Video, 2:39

王忱於2019年新創作的《魚》為其研究生畢業後的第壹支作品。王忱在《魚》中以其一貫的肢體表演和強烈風格化的畫面,以中國魚市常見的塑料袋中待宰殺的活魚為靈感來源,展現了自己離開象牙塔后,在現階段身為藝術家的生活狀態:困苦,掙紮,枯竭,與“我為魚肉”的無力感。

Fish

 

Wang Chen's video work Fish is her first artwork after graduating by Master of Fine Art. Chen aims to use her unique performance and stylized scene representing her hardship of being an artist in the “real world” at the present stage of life, namely financial difficulty, withering of inspiration, and being controlled by others at the workplace.

 

The inspiration of Fish is from an ancient Chinese saying "being fishes on someone's chopping block (人為刀俎,我為魚肉)," means others manipulate my life. It is also inspired by the living fishes sold in plastic packages on the Chinese fish market to cook freshly.
