Mitsunori Sakano's visual project "appearing" is about the remaining Japaneseeducation and Culture in Taiwan. And the level of interest in it and usage of it by thesenior generation, it starts from visiting 'Gyokuranso'. 'Gyokuranso' is a place where before the Taiwanese have received Japanese Educationand Taiwanese or Japanese use Japanese to express their thoughts living in Taiwan.With 25 years of continuous education services, this is a unique place in Taiwan.This project focuses on about the 80 years old amateur singer-songwriter Harue Kourin,Mitsunori met at Gyokuranso by chance. A document of Program at Gyokuransho,discussion among Taiwanese who have received Japanese Education and selected music videos by Harue Kourin herself will also be exhibited. Harue Kourin went to grammar and middle school in Japan for about 7 years, due to herfather's work. 2 years after the war was over, she returned to Taiwan. With the dream of becoming a singer as a basis, she started out as an amateur songwriter.Furthermore she was influenced by her husband, Seisei Hayashi who also received Japanese education. She started to teach herself the piano and write songs in Japanese, but at the sametime in Chinese and Taiwanese.The video work for her song "song of Japanese spirit" has been filmed for this exhibition.The song is based on the experiences her husband Hayashi had on a 3 year business stay in Japan. It talks in a humoristic and sarcastic way about how the warrior spirit (bushido) of Japan he had believed in and the spirit he experienced 50 years after the war are interweaved. Her husband's love of Japan can be heard, just as stories of Earthquakes, human suffering, blying and pensions all in the sprit of satire. Even though it has been 20 years since thissong has been written, the soft melody as a contrast to those lyrics still creates an interesting tension. To sum it up, it draws a picture of the loving memories of one woman about her preand post-war experiences Supported by Gyokuran-so/ Taipei Office, Interchange Association, Japan, Kuandu Fine Arts Museum

坂野充學在這次的駐村企劃,以訪問台灣存留的日本教育或文化為其背景,透過高齡年代來呈現其中的趣味性, 以參訪「玉蘭莊」為開端。「玉蘭莊」是一個為曾經受過日本教育的台灣人或日本人透過日文提供身心的支持與服務的日語安養機構。本展覽中,以偶然在玉蘭莊所認識的業餘歌手黃林春枝女士(現82歲)為主要拍攝對象。 由於父親的工作關係,黃林春枝在日本接受七年的國小和國中教育,在戰爭結束兩年後回到台灣。帶的成為歌手的初衷,成為業餘的作曲家。此外也受到同樣受過日本教育的先生影響,開始自學彈琴,製作日文歌曲以及國、台語歌曲。她的歌曲「日本魂之歌」,被播放在此展覽中。這首歌曲取於先生因工作駐日三年的期間的經驗, 他本身所持的與武士道相近的日本魂信念,在戰後經過半世紀的日本所感受到的日本魂以幽默與諷刺交織表現。 歌詞中透露出他對日本的愛的同時,對於地震、社會事件、霸凌、社會福利金等的諷刺歌詞,在經過了20年的現今,柔和的旋律中仍不變地帶給我們緊湊感。Karaoke計畫的文獻來自於玉蘭莊,黃林春枝女士親手錄製的音樂影像、照片、剪接畫面也將會一同展出。 ※ 黃林春枝(Kourin Harue) 1932年出生於台灣屏東。八歲時由於雙親的工作從台灣移居日本。東京杉並區高圓寺第八小學畢業之後,就讀靜岡沼津的女子中學。戰爭結束兩年後返回台灣。之後與作為業餘詞人的先生共同製作了日文為其多數、中文、台語的歌曲。戰後以尚罕見的鋼琴演奏同時演唱的風格製作樂曲,1977年為親友製作了最初的日本歌曲錄音帶。90年代與家族一同移居美國。之後更以獨力拍攝製作音樂錄影帶為始,先生過世後亦著手作詞,現居洛杉磯與台北兩地亦持續創作發表獨創的教會歌曲。
