Performance, 2004.4.02 pm7:00 at Wha-shang Art District, Taipei

 

在台北獲得一筆參加聯展的參展費之後,彭弘智將這筆錢換成一張張百元鈔票,他全數貼在一個自小患有小兒痲痹的朋友阿忠的裸體身上。在開幕之前,藝術家經由電子郵件散發訊息告訴大家,只要來參加開幕,就可以拿到免費的錢。當阿忠被錢遮掩的身軀一出現給大眾時,所有的紙鈔在十秒鐘之內被搶奪一空,阿忠那發展不完全的軀體也就立即地裸露在大眾面前。這些群眾是否僅是單純地遵照指示搶錢而已?還是單純地因為金錢或獎金的誘惑?而又為何當這軀體已經開始顯露出來時,這種急速且具侵略性的剝光動作無法立即停止?這個作品似乎是一種社會科學實驗,引導出人性底層的問題,也透露出藝術實現中被隱藏但永遠存在的關係:金錢與藝術。

After receiving an artist fee to participate in a group show in Taipei, Hung-Chih Peng exchanged the money into hundred dollar bills. He completely covered his friend Ah-Zhong, who has been crippled since suffering from polio as a child, with the money. Peng sent out an email advertising that money would be available for people to take during the opening of the exhibition. Once Ah-Zhong’s covered body was presented to the crowd at the event, it took no more than ten seconds before all the bills were removed, exposing the performer’s naked figure. Were these people simply following instructions? Was the incentive only pecuniary or were other considerations at stake? And why did the rapid and aggressive denuding not cease once the person underneath was revealed? Functioning almost as a social science experiment, the piece leads to a fundamental questioning of human nature. In addition, it makes apparent the oft-concealed but ever-present relationship of money to artistic practice.
