展覽《~洪~水~再~氾~濫~》延續土人探島去年在濁水溪流域敘事的田野研究,關注濁水溪一帶的洪水傳說。洪水汜濫在現代化的水利設施強勢介入以前,是能夠造成一個村落覆沒的自然災害。這些大小不一的洪水傳說,造成了濁水溪河道不斷遷徙,而大洪水沖積出的土壤,滋養出台灣中南部最大的農業種植區。濁水溪群體的遷移史,可以在流域周遭的廟宇碑文及口傳故事中隨附著各種洪水事蹟被看見。


除此之外,流域沿岸可以發現許多鎮水的「厭勝物」,如石敢當、石塔、阿彌陀佛石碑等。我們從這些碑文中叙述的洪水、神蹟、漂流神像、發光神物到厭勝物,拼凑出一幅不被正史記載的濁水溪流域圖像,在這些空缺的歷史及時空中,再想像關於洪水氾濫的歷史情境。



The art group ”TOPO EARTH LAB“ conducted a project in the Jhuoshuei River basin last year, focusing on flood legends in the area. The flooding scenarios, occurring before modern hydraulic facilities intervened forcefully, represented natural disasters capable of submerging entire villages. Simultaneously, they fostered the development of the largest agricultural planting area in central and southern Taiwan. The transformative history of the Jhuoshuei River community can be traced through temple inscriptions and oral stories surrounding various flood events in the basin.


Moreover, along the Jhuoshuei River‘s banks, numerous water-related ”厭勝物“ can be found, such as 石敢當, stone towers, and Amitabha Buddha stone inscriptions. We construct an alternative portrayal of the Jhuoshuei River basin not documented in official history by narrating floods, miracles, drifting divine images, luminous sacred objects, and 厭勝物. We present an alternative depiction of the Zhuoshui River Basin that is absent from official historical records.
