2020屏東落山風藝術季

屏東縣縣長 潘孟安

2020屏東落山風藝術季

邀您一起,與風共舞!

    我是車城在地人,這裡是我從小長大的地方,每年秋冬時的「落山風」對我們來說是喜憂參半,像是洋蔥因為落山風的吹透而能滋味甜美,但勘比颱風的威力也吹走了許多遊客遊玩的心;因此我們從2018年開始,透過藝術季活動將「阻力」化為「助力」,邀請藝術家及居民的構想及創作,把「風」溶入「藝術」,讓「風」不只被體驗、也能被看見,讓更多朋友理解這塊我們成長的土地!

    2018年首次辦理後,經過2年的沉澱,這段期間我們更深入踏查地方、舉辦多場講座與工作坊,也同時整建候船室、魚市場為「看海美術館」及「待(呆)風樓」,規劃整個園區為「落山風之吹風看海地」。希望用屏東獨有的山海大景,在落山風起的時刻,留住來往的旅人!

    我曾說「落山風就像季節性的候鳥,來了就走,它永遠不會學習等候,萬千年來,在這塊土地上留下了風跡,卻也不曾留下來過,現在,我們用藝術與風對話,也把它留下」。今年12月18日起,誠摯地邀請您來車城鄉海口港「迺藝術季」、「羨海風」,一起與風共舞!

Introduction by the Magistrate of Pingtung County

2020 Luoshanfeng Arts Festival

An invitation to dance with the wind

     I am a native of Checheng, where I was both born and raised. The locals have mixed feelings about “luoshanfeng,” or downslope wind that comes by every autumn and winter. While it makes the onions ripe and sweet, the fact that it is almost as strong as typhoon drives the tourists away. By infusing art with “wind” through the ideas and creativity of the artists and residents, we have turned crisis into opportunity with the arts festival since 2018. This allows wind to be seen as well as experienced, introducing the land we grew up on to more people.

     After the first edition of the arts festival took place in 2018, we spent two years doing fieldwork, hosting multiple lectures and workshops, as well as turning the waiting room and fish market into the Sea-viewing Museum and Daifeng Building, respectively. The park is designed as the place to experience Luoshanfeng while enjoying the view of the ocean. It is our fondest hope that the unique blessings of the mountains and ocean in Pingtung can attract travelers during the season of Luoshanfeng.

   I have said that “Luoshanfeng is like a migratory bird. It comes and goes without ever learning how to wait. It has left marks on this land after tens of thousands of years, but it never stayed. Now we can converse with the wind through art and make it stay.” We invite you to enjoy the arts festival and wind at Haikou Harbor in Checheng Township from December 18 on this year. Let’s dance with the wind!
