佳佳西市場不只提供如家一般的舒適,也不只是個展示藝術、文化的平台,而更是一個讓藝術與文化真正被生活著、生活出的實踐場域。
「佳佳非家」正是我們整合藝術、文化與生活的動態旅店計畫,藉此我們提出一種跳脫生活慣性,卻落實在生活中的思維與行動。所謂「非家」,可能是最是家的家,是非常像家的家;可能非尋常之家,乃極端之家;亦可能根本非家,而為超越家之定義的家。

我們用「非家」來以指稱旅店、藝術、文化三者與生活之間的一種微妙關係:旅店、藝術與文化皆是生活本身的奇妙極端,三者皆誠然不可能脫離日常,然而,在旅店的夜晚不會是日日遭遇的夜晚,藝術不是尋常生活,文化亦須有其精練,由是三者非家,非家卻不是不家、無家,非凡卻同時平凡。
佳佳西市場也旨在重思藝術與觀者之關係。在現代主義對所謂小中產階級觀者施加「新的震撼」教育,卻消融入市場對新的收編之後,後現代對觀者的培力或賦權,意圖將創作特權分享給觀者,卻也在與觀者互動的熱鬧喧嘩中,吞下想宣稱成功的言語與勇氣。對此,佳佳西市場想提出一個新的選項:一個對於觀者或訪客的友善積極邀約,共同去經歷並書寫種種藝術、文化、歷史的旅程。

我們的「佳佳非家」計畫將扮演一個積極作用的中介,在旅店、創作者與旅客之間經營深度的接觸,期待佳佳西市場不是一個消費藝術或以文化為飾的旅館,也不只是一個提供與藝術作品共眠的空間,而是在旅店、創作者與訪客三向的往來溝通、激盪中,形成的一個文化、藝術與生活之真實交疊。

我們稱「佳佳非家」第一波的子計畫為記憶非家,因為在此台南的歷史記憶符號化成一場優雅的演出,於是記憶與歷史中的吉光片羽,不定居在博物館的玻璃櫃之中,或被記載成鮮少翻閱的檔案,而是一種與訪客的時時互動,一種邀請性、暗示性的象徵能量,提供著另一種觀看,讓舊時人家生活的平凡,呈現為美麗的珠貝。

Jia Jia: Non-Home
 

The JJ-W is not only a hotel. It is a combination of a hotel, a gallery, a conference hall, a forum, an online platform, and an open possibility. It is a long-term project that aims to hold various cultural events, to stimulate new thoughts on art, life, cites, and the world, and to make art practical, accessible, and vivid in everyday life.

The whole guestroom design and exhibition project is titled ‘Jia Jia: Non-Home’, home pronounced the same as Jia in Chinese. Its first subproject, called ‘Non-Home in Memory’, is about the JJ-W’s 10 unique rooms that feature Tainan’s history. These 10 rooms opened on 20 Oct 2009 and have gained in popularity ever since.

Recently, in the second subproject, entitled ‘Non-Homes: 17 Moving Relaxations’, the JJ-W has added another 11 rooms, 6 more coming soon, which provide everything necessary for a guestroom but temporarily mainly in white or the original colours of building materials without any decoration. These basic, primary, simple or minimal rooms will be serving their visitors and awaiting their designers to give them life.

The concept “non-home” intends to bring a new thought to the being of hotel that is usually expected to be homely and comfortable. Indeed, people do expect something more than homeliness, such as luxury, novelty, or fantasy. It is to this non-homeliness that we would like to offer another option, something that is like and beyond home, just as art is like and beyond life. If “home” can be defined as a place to relax and “travel” as a being of leaving the homely relaxation and going for an extreme rest in movement, then the JJ-W wishes to be a non-home, a moving relaxation, a place to extremely relax as well as to journey.

We plan to provide six types of non-homes at the JJ-W. The first is the above-mentioned ‘Non-Home in Memory’, represented by the 10 finished rooms featuring Tainan’s history as they offer an alternative to vitrines or archives in museum to accommodate memory. The non-homeliness of these rooms refers to the fact that they are not cosy homes for memory to lie lazy, but the places where history interacts with the visitor and performs in the plays of various signs extracted from the memory about the historic Tainan City.

The JJ-W Hotel has invited people of different professions to explore these five possibilities of non-homes, such as:

  1. Malaysian-born, Taiwan-grown film director Ming-Liang Tsai, whose film ‘Face’ (2009) was commissioned by the Louvre Museum,
  2. Taiwanese Actor/ film director Kang-Sheng Lee,
  3. Director of Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts Pei-Ni Beatrice Hsieh,
  4. Art historian and critic Julian Stallabrass,
  5. London-based pair of photographers Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin
  6. Samoan photographer Greg Semu,
  7. Taiwan’s Ami aboriginal artist Ra Hei Zi Palifo,
  8. Taiwanese painter/ hostess for Discovery Travel & Living Yolanda Pong,
  9. Taiwanese writer/ product designer Hao-Yi Wang,
  10. Assistant Professor in National Kaohsiung Hospitality College, Former General manager of the five-star Landis Hotel, Taipei, Taichung, and Tainan Patrick Su,
  11. Professor of Architecture in National Cheng Kung University Ming-Hung Wang,
  12. Assistant Professor in Sue-Te University of Technology/ leader of the Opening-United Studio Kuo-Chang Liu,
  13. Co-leader of the Opening-United Studio/ leader of Pei-Huan Tsai Space Design Studio Pei-Huan Tsai,
  14. Taiwanese Artist Hung Liang
  15. Taiwanese Artist Yu-Cheng Lin & Feng Liu, Black Snail Studio, Tainan

The JJ-W Hotel has also invited the designers to imagine their future visitors—be she, he, or they and be real or fictional. In other words, the designers ‘customise’ their design for their imaginary visitor(s), to encounter and talk to her, him, or them, even before the room is finished according to their design. In this way, the JJ-W intends to reconsider art’s attitude towards its viewers. This is because the shock of the new, with which modern art attempted to attack its bourgeois viewers, has been long gone and the decentred shift of the postmodern authorship, which meant to empower the viewer, could not claim to be successful.

For our visitors, the JJ-W proposes a friendly and active invitation of a journey of art, culture, and history that will call forth something deep rooted in daily life yet simultaneously going beyond it. To formally manifesto, we will first hold a group exhibition, titled ‘The Encounter between the Proto-design and the Imaginary Visitor’ at the beginning of November, to display not only the generation of these 17 creative ideas, but also the starting points of the 17 stories or conversations between each designer and his or her imaginary visitor(s).


The JJ-W Hotel is planed, redesigned and reconstructed by the Opening-United Studio, led by Kuo-Chang Liu, Leader of the Opening-United Studio and Assistant Professor in Sue-Te University of Technology, and Pei-Huan Tsai, Co-leader of the Opening-United Studio and Leader of Pei-Huan Tsai Space Design Studio. The well-known Japanese architect, Sosuke Fujimoto, also joined the design team of the hotel. The management team includes Patrick Su, Assistant Professor in National Kaohsiung Hospitality College and former General Manager of the Landis Taipei Hotel, and Andy Chen, General Manager of the JJ-W HOTEL and Lecturer in National Kaohsiung Hospitality College.
