拜訪瓊麻

王文心

龍舌蘭、瓊麻等植物,因葉具有尖刺,在戰爭時期被廣泛種植於馬祖列島,作為反空降與固守海岸線用途,並成為馬祖海岸線的獨特地景。據點旁的瓊麻,非馬祖原生植物,引進後與軍人、建築物共度無數寒暑,它們曾經被寄托著,用來保護家園的期待。然而隨著時代的更迭,部隊撤出陣地,瓊麻們留了下來,成了新的移民,一代接著一代。


印記 Imprinting

瓊麻葉子上具特色的圖樣,是龍舌蘭屬植物的葉痕(leaf imprinting),葉紋有兩種:一是龍舌蘭屬新芽包覆期間,葉面或葉背除具有銀白色粉末外,葉片上常可見到新葉展開時,與外層舊相互滾動壓印遺留下來的痕跡,(表面有突起的質感)。另一相似圖案則的是在日照下,上方的葉子所形成的陰影產生(表面是平面的)。這些新舊互動與他們的對環境適應信息,緩緩悄悄地印記在他們身上。


樣貌

作品希望藉由親近瓊麻的過程,陪在他們旁邊,了解他們的樣貌,認識他們的生活史外,並利用日曬紙或藍曬紙補捉瓊麻樣貌。


選擇南竿3個軍事據點(據點 55、53、57),這3個據點在地理位置有其相對應的關係,是相互監視,相互聯繫。我們在這據點裡各擇其中的1-2株瓊麻,再利用日曬紙或藍曬紙放置在瓊麻葉上,停留等待著,可能是幾分鐘,也可能是幾天,隨著時間的變化,跟他們一起,感受他們存在的樣貌。

Being around sisal
Wang, wen shin

Plants such as agave and sisal., because of their sharp spines, were imported and widely planted on the Matsu Islands during the war for defensive facilities. It became a unique landscape of the Matsu. The sisal is not a native plant of Matsu islands; however, they have spent hardship experienced with soldiers after years. As time goes on, the troops withdrew from their positions, sisal still stays here. They became new immigrants from generation to generation.


Imprinting


The distinctive pattern on the leaves of agave and sisal is the leaf (bud) imprinting of the agave plant. The leaf margins are typically lined with sharp spines (teeth) and each leaf is usually tipped with a hard, sharp spine. The leaves are so tightly compacted in the growing tip that the teeth leave imprints on both surfaces of adjacent leaves after they unfurl, overlaying their own complex patterns over the banding.


Appearance


By being around Sisial and understanding their geological formation, habitat ecology and life history, and capture the sisal by delineating the fragile with sun print paper and blueprint paper. Through these processes, we hope to get closer to Sisal. With the experience as a point of departure, the research /exhibition explores establishing relations with other members in the community of life.
