Edge of Memory captures the light and shadow of the moments between where human civilization came from and what it has become. A cautionary tale is embedded amidst the prosody of the whisper beneath the images, coaxing the viewers to reflect on their own interpretation of the hidden metaphors, and they may question themselves: Are we seeing the darkness or the light?
Still and moving, the forms and patterns in this curated body of work by four Taiwanese photographers, 吉甌 Gio , 楊承運 YANG Cheng-Yun, 楊朝喬 YANG Chao Ciao, 劉耀斌 LIU Yao Pin, weave an untold story of boundaries: the sunset casting against a forgotten place, ripples and the stain that became the filter where sunlight goes through, the trace of the wave, and the signs of wind. Each of these moments is reimagined in clusters as if they were sentences. Each column or stripe dances to one another as though they were incoherent verses having a dialogue. They reveal the grammar behind the composition, asking the viewers, to themselves, which are the punctuations and which are the verbs.
The more a viewer wanders their eyes through this visual dialogue, the more they are evoked by a deep examination into a faraway memory of their own. These verses are seemingly expressing the before, after, and in-between of becoming. Between the day-to-day scenes, where a viewer locates themselves is an unconventional imagery in the modern day landscape. What is deemed to be queer or unfitting is often the truest expression of life, as it is calling for the greatest potential of a human’s liveliness.
The natural sceneries are suggesting that the forgotten and mundane might have a greater message about life than what capitalization, standardization, and formality can inform us. Through the language behind the images, the photographers ask the viewers to rethink what is most close to who they are. Is it the lotus pond behind the fence or the room inside the iron window that protects them? And what are the lines that take us apart? Are they the destroyed tracks after an earthquake or a spoken but unheard voice? Like how the same pattern can signify a trap or liberation, it is one’s own choice of what to see in each incident that is brought to us in life. Edge of Memory as though composes a flashback of a life journey, bringing about all the most pressing and humane questions: Stay or go? Change or remain the same?

「記憶の端」は、人類の文明が始まった場所と、現在の姿の間にある瞬間の光と影を捉えています。注意喚起の物語が、画像の下で囁かれる韻律の中に埋め込まれており、視聴者が隠された比喩の解釈について自己反省を促すことで、彼ら自身に問いかけます:私たちは暗闇を見ているのか、それとも光を見ているのか?
この台湾の4人の写真家である吉甌 Gio、楊承運 YANG Cheng-Yun、楊朝喬 YANG Chao Ciao、劉耀斌 LIU Yao Pin、によるキュレーションされた作品集には、静止したものと動くものがあり、それらが織りなす物形と模様があって、日没の光が忘れられた場所に当たったり、波紋と汚れが光を通すフィルターになったり、波の痕跡や風のサインがあったりします。これらの瞬間は、それぞれが文として再構成されており、列やストライプが対話する無関係な詩のように踊り合っています。作品は、構成の文法を明らかにし、視聴者に自分たちで区切りや動詞を決めるよう促しています。これらの瞬間は、物語の枠内で描かれた未知の境界を表しています。
観客が視覚的な対話を通して目をさまよわせるほど、彼らは自分自身の遠い記憶を深く考察される。これらの詩節は、ある程度、なる前、なる後、そしてなる中を表現しているように見える。観客が自分自身を見つける日常のシーンの間には、現代の風景における非伝統的なイメージがあります。奇妙だと思われるものや適合しないと思われるものは、人生の最も真実な表現であることがよくあります。なぜなら、それは人間の活力の最大の可能性を呼びかけているからです。
自然の風景は、忘れられたことや日常的なことが、私たちに伝えられるキャピタル化、標準化、形式化で教えてくれるものよりも、より大きな人生のメッセージを持っているかもしれないことを示唆しています。写真の背後にある言語を通じて、写真家たちは観客に、自分たちにとって最も近いものを再考するように求めています。それはフェンスの後ろのハスの池なのか、彼らを守る鉄の窓の中の部屋なのか?そして私たちを分かつ線は何ですか?それらは地震後に破壊されたトラックなのか、聞かれていない発言なのか?
展示会では、写真家たちは自然光を画像の間を照らすスポットライトとして使用しています。注意深い観客は写真の中で繰り返されるパターンを見つけるかもしれません。同じパターンが罠または解放を示すように、人生の各出来事で何を見るかは自分次第です。 「記憶の端」 は人生の旅のフラッシュバックのように構成され、最も切実で人間らしい問いを提起します: 残るか去るか?変化するか同じままか?
