這個世界真的很小,誰說赫爾辛基和台北很遙遠?
這兩天在朋友的開幕展中,巧遇一位久聞其名不見其人的藝術家。
於是這位赫爾辛基的藝術家,給我一份本週末即將在台北當代藝術館登場的台北展覽消息和邀請卡,及一份赫爾辛基/台北連線的YKON媒體英文稿(見本文最後)。

參展的芬蘭組織YKON,其中兩個成員還正好就是組織「赫爾辛基抱怨合唱」的藝術家,巧吧?!
這會,YKON的另外兩個芬蘭藝術家,正在台北準備展覽中,他們這幾年來一直在推動「微型國家」(micronation)計劃,有興趣去參加星期六晚間展覽開幕晚會+「微型國家」承認台灣儀式的,可以看以下邀請卡。

(我在這裡不得已把邀請卡裁兩半,不然放不上來,我知道一定看不太清楚。。想收到完整版的,再留言告訴我吧)
除了十二月二號星期六晚上的開幕晚會之外,十二月三號星期天還有與藝術家面對面的作品討論會。

有興趣的朋友,可以直接上台北當代藝術館「赤裸人」的展覽網頁去了解。
各國藝術家與作品的簡介則在這裡

另外,這份赫爾辛基/台北連線的YKON媒體英文稿,我 就一併附在下面,算是代他們歡迎有興趣的朋友前往瞧瞧,也從這裡跟台北的朋友招招手,誰去看了展別忘了來跟我說說心得啊~我想這會是個很有趣的藝術展,除 了「赤裸人」這個概念值得思考之外,看來自各國的藝術家們,用不同的角度和藝術創作來思考國家與個人之間、自身與大環境之間的關係,就跟微型國家本身的概 念一樣,既可以嚴肅,也可以幽默。

Taiwan: Recognition by ten more countries possible

Today, the non-profit advocacy group YKON revealed that it has been
secretly negotiating with a number of Microstates and Micronations on
full recognition of the sovereignty and independence of Taiwan. Ten out
of 35 countries said they would grant recognition, either
unconditionally or after certain requirements are met. The negotiations
were held on behalf of an undisclosed Taiwan-based organisation.

“This could be an important milestone on the road to Taiwan’s re-entry
to the United Nations,” YKON spokesperson Tomas Träskman said. “We hope
Taiwan will take this generous offer seriously and enter into formal
negotiations with the Group of Ten.”

The proposals are being presented to the public at MOCA Taipei between
December 2 and February 4, 2006. Taiwanese citizens can also express
their support for negotiations with the Group of Ten by signing a
petition on display at MOCA.

YKON is an advocacy group for unrepresented nations, experimental
countries and utopian thinkers.
