海陆之眼是融合船只与海岸故事的艺术作品,体现了澳大利亚古今共同的历史。詹姆斯·库克与澳洲原住民的初次相遇是两种完全不同的知识体系、信仰和文化的相遇,现代澳大利亚的身份认同正是根植于此。澳大利亚人的脑海里总是浮现奋进号,而对澳洲原住民来说,这艘船的骨架突显了库克船长和他的手下幽灵般的存在,同时也揭示了当地重要的鲸鱼图腾。

Eyes of the Land and the Sea is a piece that expresses ancient and modern Australia’s shared history by integrating the stories from the ship and stories from the shore into a single artwork. The first encounter between James Cook and the First Australians was a meeting of two very different knowledge systems, beliefs and cultures and it is at this intersection, where the identity of modern Australia now lies. The ‘ghost’ of The HMB Endeavour is always present in the minds of Australians, while for indigenous people the skeletal abstraction of the ship emphasises the ghostly presence of Cook and his men as well as providing an important symbol of a significant local totem, the whale.

视觉上,该装置将高桅横帆船和鲸鱼肋骨抽象为汞合金结构,呈现了库克与澳洲原住民初次相遇的不同视角,并将两种截然不同的世界观进行结合叙述。装置位于海陆交界的潮间带,代表两个人类社会最初发生碰撞的地点。装置邀请人们参与这些故事并对作品代表的内容作出自己的解读。

Visually the work is an abstraction of tall ship and whales ribs, presenting a structural amalgam of the two, which speaks to the different perspectives of those first encounters, providing a conjoined narrative of two very different world views. Positioned at the interface of land and sea – the tidal zone that represents the point of Eyes of the Land and the Sea where these two worlds initially collided – the work will invite viewers to engage with these diverse stories and enable individual interpretation in regards to what the piece represents for them.

海陆之眼是关于发现的故事,不是英国人发现澳洲大陆,而是所有澳大利亚人探寻他们真正的历史,一起走向真正和谐相融的国度。

Eyes of the Land and the Sea is a story about discovery. Not the discovery of land by England, but of all Australians discovering their true history as we move together towards a truly reconciled Nation.
