《煙》,召喚了1980年代藝術家年少時期一個既深刻又無形的懵懂經驗。對於那時候的創作者而言,臺灣島嶼的天空中總是飄著一陣騷動而不安的霧霾。以「煙」為媒介,高俊宏透過1980年代的「新竹李長榮化工廠事件」關於空汙與水污染的環保運動為表,以鸞堂降筆會在日殖時期的戒煙運動為內裡,透過「正反寓言」的方式,在現代與前現代的兩股煙的疊影之中,探討著惡與救贖。

Jun-Honn Kao’s new work, Smoke, evokes a profound yet intangible experience drawn from his unseasoned teenage years in the 1980s. For the young artist at that time, the island of Taiwan was always shrouded in unsettling smog. In this work, Kao uses “smoke” as his medium and explores a mixture of the opium-quitting movement advocated by "Jiangbi Hui " (meaning “Falling Pen Associations”) of the Phoenix Halls and the environmental movement fighting against air and water pollutions related to the incident of LCY Chemical Corp. taking place in Hsinchu in the 1980s. With an allegorical dialectics, the work delivers a debate about the subject of wickedness and salvation through the intertwining smoke rising in modern and pre-modern Taiwan.
