節目介紹

葛偉尚讓人痴迷的午夜狂奔客(2011)的焦點,是Ali Kadhim這位跑酷人如何在雪梨靈活地騰挪城市的地景。跑酷是種城市地景間移動的技能,關鍵在如何只用身體進行點對點間最有效率的移動。男性跑酷人的稱呼叫做traceur,女性則叫traceuse。他們展現的技巧包括跑動、跳躍、攀爬、上牆、騰躍障礙等,來化解所選路徑中的不同挑戰。跑酷人展現的是身體強度、體操技能創新,與幽雅的靈活度。

Program Info

Shaun Gladwell’s hypnotic video Midnight traceur, 2011, features parkour practitioner Ali Kadhim as he dexterously negotiates the urban landscape of Sydney. Parkour is a discipline that involves moving through the cityscape, attempting to travel from one location to another in the most efficient and quickest method possible, using only the body. A male parkour practitioner is usually called a ‘traceur’, and a female practitioner a ‘traceuse’. Performing manoeuvres such as running, jumping, climbing, scaling walls and vaulting over various obstacles that challenge their chosen path, parkour practitioners demonstrate physical strength, acrobatic ingenuity and lithe agility.

Shaun Gladwell’s practice engages personal experience and a wider speculation of art history to examine the dynamics of contemporary culture. Gladwell transposes forms of urban expression such as skateboarding, graffiti, BMX bicycle riding, break-dancing and extreme sports into the multiple mediums of his practice. These performances, videos, paintings, photographs, sculptures and virtual reality works make discursive investigations into forms of creativity and notions of freedom.
