請觀眾幫我穿上募集而來的胸罩﹐穿滿全身四肢後﹐立定﹐脫去自己的胸罩﹐露出胸部來。

The audiences helped me wear the bras I collected from the public.  After my whole body, arms, and legs are full of bras, I took off my own bras and lay bare of my bosoms.

我將不同的木箱木椅推疊在一起﹐顫危危而小心翼翼地爬上去﹐然後就著窗戶往外望。


I piled up different wooden boxes and chairs, climbed to the top, and looked out from the window.

residency, Organhaus Art Space 器空間

在古老吵嚷擁擠的茶館裡﹐人們忙著玩牌﹐打麻將﹐喝茶﹐嗑瓜子聊天﹐我安靜地將紅毛線纏到手上﹐然後在狹小的走道間倒著走。
In a crowded noisy old Chinese tea house where people play cards, Ma Jang, drink tea, and talk loudly, I quietly wrapped my fingers and hand with red yarn and walked backward through the narrow aisles. 









草地上的下午茶 Afternoon Tea on the Grass

Yeh, Tzu-chi  Afternoon Tea on the Grass   performance   Tainan, Taiwan   2010

畫廊裡有一個小天井﹐極小﹐但花木扶疏﹐還有草坪﹐在都市水泥叢林裡﹐特別吸睛﹐讓我想到馬奈的《草地上的午餐》﹐那麼就讓我東施效顰﹐邀觀眾來一場《草地上的下午茶》吧!無奈天井四周高牆環繞﹐悶極﹐只好拿枯葉當扇子搧﹐看不遠﹐只好猛抬頭看天空﹐像井底蛙。

There is a small courtyard inside the gallery.  It’s quite small but with some plants upon the lawn.  It attracted me in this city full of cement buildings.  It reminded me “Lunch on the Grass,” the famous painting by Manet.  Why not inviting audience to make something similar to it, say “Afternoon-Tea on the Grass!”  Oh, my God!  It was so sultry because it was surrounded by four tall walls so we took a dry leaf and fanned ourselves.  It was not possible for us to look far so we kept looking at the sky, like frogs under a deep well.

我使用黑布與紅布﹐在一段不短的行走與爬行中與佛陀﹑穆斯林, 小草﹑樹木﹑空氣﹑陽光﹑土地﹑小石頭﹑竹橋﹐和我自己產生對話。最終我爬到當地附有宗教意味的傳統木造涼亭pandobo﹐結束長長的「旅程」。

Using the black and red clothes, I had a long journey of dialogue with Buddha, grass, trees, air, sunshine, earth, rubbles, the bamboo bridge, and myself.  Finally, I came to the end of long journey: the Pandobo, a wooden pavilion with local religious elements inside.

Beyond Pressure Performance Art Event


我描繪映照在牆上的自己的身影﹐繼而邀觀眾上來描繪他們自身的身影﹐之後我在數公尺外投擲灌有紅色壓克力顏料的雞蛋於人形上﹐雞蛋扎在牆上的霎那﹐蛋殼爆裂(聲)﹐噴射出紅色顏料﹐並從在人形上流下…

I drew the shape of my own shadows, and invited audience to draw theirs.  Then I threw eggs with red acrylic on the human shapes.  When the eggs cracked on the wall, the red paint splashes and flew down the human shapes….

我矇住雙眼端坐椅上隨時間流逝身體自頭腹部慢慢往下垂落直至身體從椅上瞬間再自上爬下地面爬離子。所有動作均以十分緩慢幾近令人不察的速度進行。

With eyes folded, I sit upright on the chair.  With the flowing of time, I let down of my head, neck, shoulders, chest, belly in a very quiet and slow motion, and then fell suddenly from the chair to the table with a very loud sound.  Then I slowly climbed down from the table to the ground, and kept crawling away from the table.

我徒手垂打桌上番茄﹐以刀插蕃茄請觀眾吃。之後矇住觀眾雙眼﹐再以刀插蕃茄請矇眼觀眾吃。多數觀眾張口接受﹐只有一位拒絕張口。

I hit the tomatoes with my hands after which I served the audiences with tomato stick on a knife.  After that, I folded their eyes and, again, served them with tomato stick on the knife.  Most of them accepted it, while only one of them refused to open her mouth.

看手相 Palm Reading







葉子啟   看手相   現場行為   以色列 耶路撒冷  2008
Yeh, Tzu-chi   Palm Reading   performance   Jerusalem, Israel  2008

我在耶路撒冷小巷裡擺起桌子幫人看手相。看完後請來者寫下他們生命裡最重要人的名字。我同時亦寫下當刻心裡所思所想。

I did palm reading in a small alley of Jerusalem, after which I asked people to write down the names of the most important people in their life.  In the mean time, I also wrote down what came to my mind at that moment.

地上有一長條黑布﹐中間車線成兩條布隧道。我以書寫邀請一位觀眾和我一起同時個自爬過那隧道。爬出布隧道後﹐我在桌上以雙手做一些動作﹐然後邀請那位觀眾加入與我互動。慢慢我開使用力﹐友好的互動突變成兩人雙手的角力。最後兩人在紙上和談﹐結束這趟既友亦敵的手語過程。


A long black cloth was sewed into two tunnels.  I wrote to invite an audience to crawl through the tunnels with/without me.   Then I did some movements with my hands and asked him to join me.  At first, we have a nice interaction.  However, as I strengthened little by little, the friendly interaction became something like wrestling. We even bit each other’s…. Finally, we negotiated by writing/talking on the paper, and thus ended this process of half friend and half enemy.

在民宿房間裡﹐我與觀眾互換衣物﹐以異於尋常方式穿戴上身。

In the room of a hotel, I interchanged what I wore with the audience in a playful and absurd way.
