2019年，台南百年布莊錦源興將家鄉印象繪製為一系列印花，有烏魚子、黑面琵鷺、關廟麵線...等不同圖騰。乍看滿是幽默，其實想以印花作為媒介，反覆省思曾經發生在這裡值得紀念的人、事、物。2020年春天，開始思索除了視覺藝術之外的更多可能，於是與音樂家何宣恩 Esther Hope 透過鋼琴演奏曲創作，以七款不同印花為題，將在地文化轉譯成曲，揉合出創作者們對於家鄉的共同記憶。視覺與音樂的重奏，如同此地名聞遐邇的多樣美食，豐富精彩、令人回味。將此專輯獻給台南也獻給你，願這一切只是開始，你我都能一直追隨生命腳步，感受生活周遭的各樣美好。
Weaving a city with pattern printing and music…
In 2019, at the city of Tainan, Taiwan, a century-old fabric store— Gímgoânheng—created a series of pattern printing by using emblems of memories from our hometown. The choices of print patterns include Mullet roe, Black-faced spoonbills, Guanmiao noodles, and much more. At the first glance, it may seem humorous, but the whole series was intentionally created in remembrance of people, stories, and things that are of great merit through pattern printing as a medium. With plans to go beyond the walls of visual arts, in the spring of 2020, we teamed up with a musician, Esther Hope. Through her piano composition, we translated local cultures into music, kneading our collective memories together through seven disincentive print patterns. This ensemble of visual arts and music is just like Tainan’s famous local cuisines—lavish, exciting, and memorable! We dedicate this to the city of Tainan and also to you. May this be the beginning of us learning to savor all the goodness and wonders around the world as you and I continue to walk in the footsteps of life.
