If We Do Not Exist, How Could Our Memories Remain and not Pass into Silence constructs a “memory map” between one object and another. These objects hint at the sum total of human activity. Translated into sound and visual elements, they form a statement linking personal memories, historical memories, geographical memories and local memories. The artists appeal to the senses, using their own bodily expressions to chart a sound score during the process of field collection, and from this they produce an aural map of modernology. At the same time, the trajectories of the body, society and history are manifested through the “performances” of objects. Somewhere between acts of precision and unpredictable accidents, the works are formed by coincidental events. Here, visitors interact and collide with the performers’ bodies, objects and sounds as they are occasionally introduced. Thus, hearing becomes the force driving the complex connections between the body, memory and history.

藉由一個物件到另一個物件建構起一張「記憶地圖」。這些物件暗示著人類活動的總和,他們透過聲音和視覺的轉譯,變成一種連結個人記憶、歷史記憶、地理記憶以及地方記憶的陳述;以及作者訴諸感官使用自己身體表現在田野採集過程中的「聲譜」測繪,藉此呈現出一種聽覺考現圖志。同時,身體的、社會的和歷史的軌跡透過物件「演出」而被顯影。
