豪華朗機工 Luxury Logico
一天表演 One Day Performance
2012 年豪華朗機工於就在藝術空間呈現了一場《一天表演》，以致敬謝德慶的《一年行為表演1978-1979》（籠子）。在謝德慶的表演中，當時 28 歲的藝術家將自己關在籠子裡，不說話、不閱讀或寫作、不聽廣播或看電視。每三週允許一次觀眾參觀，而藝術家的夥伴負責為他帶來食物並清除廢物。照片文件和律師公證藝術家確實一年沒有離開籠子。謝德慶每一天在牆壁上刻一條線，標記時間的流逝，在表演結束時總共365條線的照片紀錄將製作成版畫作品，共365版次。豪華朗機工收藏了其中一件版畫，參與了藝術品收藏交易。這個交易讓他們同時成為了收藏家和藝術家，探索一件藝術品從創作、欣賞到獲得——再回到創作的過程。
豪華朗機工以謝德慶《一年行為表演1978-1979》（籠子）為啟發點，創作了《一天表演》，將一天分為 365 個單位，並在每個單位時間內蓋章和簽名與標記蓋章時間。藝術家將《一天表演》製作為「日曆書」，每一頁是一張時間單位版畫輸出，共有365版次。
One day, can be both seem like an immeasurable amount of time, or an unremarkable building block that forms a bigger whole.
In 2012, Luxury Logico undertook a One Day Performance at Project Fulfill Art Space, in homage to Hsieh Teh-Ching’s (Sam Hsieh) One Year Performance 1978-1979 (Cage Piece). In Hsieh’s performance, the artist, then 28, confined himself in a cage, not speaking, reading or writing; he did not listen to the radio or watch TV, for the course of one year. Spectators were allowed once every three weeks, while a loft mate brought the artist food and removed waste. Photographic documentation and a lawyer’s notarization confirmed that Hsieh did not leave the cage for a year. A photograph of the scratched line that Hsieh made to mark each passing day was produced as an edition of 365 prints. Luxury Logico purchased one of these prints, participating in the commerce of collecting artwork. This transaction allowed them to become both collector and artist, exploring the journey of an artwork from creation, to appreciation, to acquisition – and back to creation again.
Inspired by Hsieh Teh-Ching’s Cage Piece, Luxury Logico created One Day Performance, in which one day was divided into 365 units, and within each unit of time they performed a set of actions, stamping and signing 365 prints while marking the time in which it was stamped. The performance and prints were produced as a ‘Calendar Book’, containing reproductions of the 365 prints, with 365 editions.
Collectors are a unique existence – beyond just appreciating art, they are willing to acquire the artworks at a certain price, and thus support the careers of the artist. Through this performance and calendar book, Luxury Logico examines the cycle and commercial industry of an artwork, becoming collectors themselves as well as projecting their own questions towards collectors – do they love the works they collect? What is their point of view? The cyclic narrative of an artwork – echoes the cycle of a day or a year, unique to their time and place, each filled with the thoughts and emotions of both collector and artist.
