2019年5月24日臺灣成為亞洲第一個同性婚姻合法化的國家。在此計畫中,藝術家陳昱榮以同性戀HIV感染者在同性婚姻合法化之後的社會處境作為提問,邀請自願者共同創作作為計劃的開端並重新檢視與探討社會集體意識面對疾病議題所衍伸的現象與反應。

藝術家透過與自願者小旭的合作,進行生命史訪談與共同創作,透過創作式訪談,重構虛幻與真實的界線。計畫以深度訪談、聲音詩、現成物裝置等媒介進行創作,藉由與志願者訪談計畫的實踐過程與整理展示,去除社會對於疾病的污名化標籤。

作品以不同的線索作串連,由法國詩人阿蒂爾·蘭波的作品《醉舟》的念誦聲響作為隱喻,如同航行在大海中的孤舟。此外,透過合作創作呈現小旭關於自我、家庭、初戀、生活與疾病的關係。透過個體的生命經驗轉化為一種觀看的敘事,並重新思考共生與共存的價值。

藝術家認為:「恐懼來自於未知,而『同理』是戰勝一切的基礎」。

Taiwan became the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage on May 24, 2019. CHEN Yu-Jung paid attention to whether is it changed the degree of stigmatization of HIV-infected persons after the same-sex marriage is legalized ? By inviting volunteers to create together as the beginning of the project, he re-examined and explored the phenomenon and reaction of social collective consciousness in the face of disease issues.

He invited Xiaoxu, a volunteer of HIV-infected to conduct life history interviews and co-creation. Through the narration of life history and historical archives, reconstruct the boundary between illusion and reality, and display and participate in the infection of the project in the form of archives. The project is expected to conduct research and creation in the media of in-depth interviews, sound poem, and ready-made objects. It is hoped that through the practice and arrangement of the project of interviews with volunteers, the stigmatization of infected people in the past will be removed.

The works are linked by different clues. The chanting sound of French poet Attila Rimbaud’s poem "Drunken Boat" is used as a metaphor, like a lone boat sailing in the sea. In addition, Xiaoxu's relationship with self, family, first love, life and illness is presented. Transform the individual's life experience into a narrative, and rethink the value of symbiosis and coexistence.

He believes that "Fear comes from the unknown, and the 'empathy' is the basis for conquering everything."
