《凌遲考》Lingchi—Echoes of a Historical Photograph 陳界仁 2002

  • 《凌遲》-- A historical photo from Georges Bataille’s 《情慾的淚水》(Les Larmes d`Eros) , taken by a French soldier during the period of 1904-1905.

  •  computer synthesized with footages of dramatization and some other historical images.

  • Pay attention to the images of

    • the gazed and the viewers, and

    • the roles of the camera and the traumatic wound.


The Object of Gaze: Tortured andin a trance?


《凌遲考》--the viewers of Ching Dynasty? Or Taiwanese workers?

《凌遲考》Lingchi

  • Implications of Lingchi:

    • The interrelations of punishment and discipline.

    • History –gets ‘tortured and fragmented’ in photos? Gets gazed at by the Western?

    • History of what?

  • 「凌遲」原指在1905年以前,中國封建制度下對於犯下「大逆不道」罪行的犯人,施以漫長的「殺千刀」酷刑。「凌遲」刑罰於1905年被廢止後,在華人日常口語中,「凌遲」已由刑罰的專有名詞,轉化成描述日常生活處境的廣泛用語。舉凡是被漫長、重複、無止境、非人道的工作和生活所折磨的狀態,皆常會以「凌遲」一詞形容。(陳)


The Other Historical Images

  • (陳)

  • 影片中在受刑者體內出現的5個建築遺址,按出現的順序分別是:

    • 毀於英法聯軍和八國聯軍的北京圓明園、

    • 日本731部隊在哈爾濱的人體實驗室、

    • 台灣冷戰/戒嚴時期在綠島的政治犯監獄、

    • 美國RCA公司遺留在台灣桃園的重污染工廠,以及

    • 成衣工廠惡性關廠後的女工宿舍。


The Other Historical Sites


The Other Historical Sites (2)

  • The lab or a factory?


Wound: A Channel for Dialogue with the Past

  • 照片中受刑者胸膛兩個闇黑的傷口,彷彿像是兩個可以通往過去與未來的「通道」;經由凝視──我們似乎可以穿越平面的照片,進入到受刑者身體的「通道」內,並通過這個身體的「通道」看見在凌遲影像被拍攝之前和之後,從英法聯軍、八國聯軍摧毀的圓明園、日本731部隊在哈爾濱的人體實驗室、台灣冷戰時期的政治犯監獄、跨國企業遺留在台灣的重污染地區,以及剝削廉價勞動力的加工廠﹝註:3﹞之間的連續性和「凌遲」從未真正結束的狀態

The Actual Screening Site

  • With three screens – why?

The Actual Screening Site


The Actual Screening Site –the Sea upside down?


《凌遲考》Lingchi -- Interpretations?

  • Starting from two holes on a photo –punctum (穿刺點)

  • The disciplined and oppressed –the viewers (people in Ching Dynasty as well as Taiwanese workers, the people of bio-chemical tests, etc. )

  • Orientalism critiqued: The traumas of colonial/imperial history – turned into spectacles by the Western photographers/travelers.

  • History -- in fragments and remains;

  • The traumatized – beyond comprehension;

  • But the blood is flowing and converging—like the sea upside down.
