麻吉世界
鄧詠涵

麻吉世界是鄧詠涵的最新力作,厚厚一本,像是有點歪掉的圖鑑百科。作者以手機拍下生活裡的各式物件和平面影像,有我們熟悉的,也有長得很落漆的;有真實世界裡的真寵物們,也有你根本叫不出名字,但好像又在哪部動畫裡看過的動物玩偶。

小時候看的卡通裡,很多主角都是動物。動物們是人類最好的朋友。長大後再回頭看這些被大量山寨和再現的卡通明星,例如:長得很瘦的凱蒂貓、看了並不會比較想進去的牙醫診所牙齒寶寶、一直陰魂不散的笑臉符號和完全不像小兔的美少女戰士面膜⋯⋯一旦把眼前的畫面跟回憶中的卡通影像比對,產生的落差感總是令人有點哀傷。真實和虛構的影像,就這樣自然地穿插在我們的生活之中。儘管如此,一天又平安的過去了,感謝醜萌麻吉們的努力,歪歪卡通動物們,依舊會在街角某處守護著小鎮村 ♫

MA G WORLD
Han Teng

“MA G World” is Han Teng’s latest work. “Ma G” (simply translated as “best friend” in Taiwanese) is a knock-off illustrated dictionary printed in full color on glossy paper. Teng concentrates on images common in Taiwanese life, most of which were taken using a simple smartphone. Not only starring real animals, but also some well-known cartoon ones are featured alongside the off-brand version of themselves- many of these are familiar and nostalgic animations that aren’t quite placeable in memory. The anthropomorphic and relatable nature of these cartoon heroes make you forget that they’re animals, especially since they’ve been our on-screen companions since childhood. In retrospect, and no surprisingly, we come to realise that many of these animal characters were massively produced in a way that looked nothing like their original selves. The skinny faced Hello Kitty, weird looking tooth babies, a hundred different versions of smiley faces, a hideous sailor moon beauty mask... It is sad to make this observation, as it seems to tarnish our seemingly perfect memories. However, the real and the imaginary can co-exist in everyday life, and our “Ma G”s will have always been with us.
