失眠

 

《失眠》拍攝於參加新加坡拉薩爾藝術大學的藝術駐留項目之時。在《失眠》這個作品中,王忱將表演與在黑色幕布上的投影結合,創造出具有舞臺戲劇感的影像。在本片中,王忱用具有詩意的肢體動作,摒棄了彩色的圖像,只保留光影,又將象征三個空間的意象加入影片之中:家鄉濟南,居住地墨爾本,作品形成當地新加坡;王忱亦将“失眠”這個生理現象帶來的“行尸走肉”融合于影片中,营造出消极氛围与不真实感,形成壹種如詩般的隱喻,更表現了個體生命漂流於這偌大世界的無歸屬感,遊子的鄉愁和離開母國的宿命。

 

 

Insomnia

 

Insomnia is a short video work which combines performance with projections on a black curtain to simulate a stage play scene. It is created during Wang Chen's art residency in Singapore. 

Wang Chen uses symbols of three cities in Insomnia: Jinan (her hometown), Melbourne (her residence) and Singapore. Chen emotionally uses the poetic body-movement and metaphorical monochrome imagery representing non-belongingness, fatalistic displacement with the mother country and nostalgia, along with the sense of unreality and anxiety brought by insomnia.
