如果 .花園 If . Garden 2019

2017年有感於響應#MeToo運動的受害人被網絡欺凌,文晶瑩創作了一些填色紙讓觀眾以同理心去思考如果他們是受害人、施暴者和旁觀者的感受和想法。來火炭開放工作室的觀眾反應熱烈,2018年有超過1200人到訪工作室,有二百多位觀眾填色參與創作。她亦獲婦援會邀請到台灣舉行工作坊。文晶瑩把參與者填了色的花總結砌成「如果 .花園」 裝置藝術 。「如果我是受害人」的花部分掉落,部分上升 ,表現受害人悲哀 、失落 、憤怒 、失去自信又𡚒力自強的心情 。「 如果我是施暴者 」的花向中心聚集,因為部分人填色時會問:有人做錯嗎?我都是受害人!不過亦有些人有悔意。「如果我是旁觀者」的花有散有聚,部分人表示會怕事想離開,另方面亦有人願意站出來。

作品希望能凝聚力量,深化討論。

Victims of sex assault resorting to #MeToo posts have been attacked in 2017. This made Phoebe Man think empathy is important. She has made three types of line drawings for coloring: “If I were a victim”, “If I were a perpetrator” and “If I were a bystander”. Viewers can put themselves in the shoes of these 3 kinds of people. The audience responded enthusiastically during Fotan Open Studios 2018. 1200 people went to the exhibition. More than two hundred spectators filled in the color to participate in the creation. She was invited by Taipei Women’s Rescue Foundation to hold a workshop in Taipei. Phoebe transformed the audience colored flowers to an installation “If . Garden”. The flowers of “If I were a victim” is partially dropped and partially rose, showing the victim’s feelings of sadness, loss, anger, loss of self-confidence and empowerment. The flowers of “If I were a perpetrator” gather at the center and are self-centered, but many also regretted. The flowers of “If I were a bystander” are scattered and coming together. Some people are afraid of being hurt if they fight against the perpetrators, but many people are not afraid and are willing to support the victims.

The work hopes to gather strength and deepen the discussion.
