大溪大禧,一場跨越當代設計與民俗信仰的城市祭典

A modern religious festival in which contemporary design joins folk beliefs.

重新定位傳統慶典的「大溪大禧」,是為迎接有大溪第二個過年之稱的關聖帝君聖誕慶典,展開暖壽前祭。「大溪大禧」整合宗教慶典、當代設計與社區社群,是為期一個月、以新型態地域慶典演繹傳統文化的城市藝術祭。

 

 

「大溪大禧」來到第三年,時逢 2020 年大眾需要被療癒、振奮與鼓舞之時,以「關公Online!」作為年度主題,回到信仰本質的核心,將無遠弗屆的祝福從大溪城鎮中傳達出去。在策劃階段以「復興祭典生活」為主軸,挖掘、研究並復興逐漸消逝的珍貴信仰風俗,並考量疫情時代需求,透過建置雙語官方網站作為線上展覽平台,展現三年累績的故事脈絡與轉譯成果,更加開年度主題「關公Online!」線上遶境活動網站,透過互動機制設計帶領大眾從認識關聖帝君、向關公許願,到進入虛擬世界的大溪街景排隊等遶境,一步步認識大溪的遶境文化。同時推出線上預購的平安福袋,讓人不論何時都能跟關公保持連線,分享一年一度的平安福氣,也象徵關公無所不在,隨時都守護著大家!

作為一場城市祭典,2020大溪大禧籌備初期,在疫情尚不明朗的情況下考量各種情況的應變措施,除了設計跳脫地域性的展演方式,同時也持續籌備經典的開幕大戲、市集以及展覽。在接近農曆六月時,台灣疫情趨緩已沉寂數月的生活百業隨著關聖帝君聖誕日到來,人們開始期盼著能夠一如往常感謝關聖帝君的照顧,最終「新型態遶境」在普濟堂、社頭與在地社團的支援下,終於能在開幕當天如期舉行,線上線下同步啟動,帶動整座城市祭典的熱鬧氛圍,與大眾共享難能可貴的平安與福氣!

Lord Guan's birthday celebration is an important traditional event held in the rural outskirts of Taipei. The local people call it "the second Chinese New Year for Daxi" and everyone in the township of Daxi uses to put significant effort into the preparations. Tasked to preserve and promote the event, since 2018, BIAS has developed and implemented an urban festival to help the township preparing for the celebration. The festival has been named "Daxi Daxi," i.e., a play of words that means "Good Luck Daxi."

Usually, Taiwanese religious ceremonies are conservative and based on rural traditions that strictly dictate the god's parade rules. To share the charm of these folk beliefs with the urban public, BIAS curated a strategic set of design interventions and developed a series of educational activities to mediate the ancient traditions. In particular, in 2020, the third installment of "Daxi Daxi," the "Lord Guan Online" concept was implemented, i.e., a creative offline and online approach that allows the god's blessings to spread far away through the new media. This strengthened the identity of the local community and attracted more than 100,000 people to the township. Besides this, an exhibition focused on the "backstage" of the religious event and a show mixing modern and traditional arts were implemented. By this, BIAS hopes that the traditional culture can intertwine with the urban one and, thanks to this, get enough momentum to be preserved for the future.

「大溪霹靂夜」Daxi Thunderbolt Night

概念取自社頭在遶境前會在大溪各個空地廣場進行夜練活動,除準備為關聖帝君獻藝外,也互相拚場較勁。大溪大禧以夜練擂台概念,進行節目設計和演出媒合,打造一場賓主盡歡、精彩的技藝拚場大擂台。

During the night rehearsal of the traditional parade, the performers use to compete with each other. Contemporary performances joined the activities, and a musical-theatrical-circus show made it on the stage.

「金喜大廟市」Gold Luck Temple Fair

1990年代前,遶境期間的大溪便會呈現廟會夜市不夜城的景象。為復興祭典生活,以生活工藝、飲食、信仰、在地產業三大主題,打造一場為遶境大暖身心的金喜大廟市!

In the last century, when the religious celebration was at the peak, a bustling night market took place together with the event. For a few days, Daxi would become a city that never sleeps. To reenact this atmosphere, a new night market for newly branded local craft and food was implemented.

「遶境事務所」神將文化與攝影展|Pilgrimage Office 

透過打造天界人間共同籌備慶典的情境,展現在信仰文化中人與神之間的緊密連結。在普濟堂宮廟辦公室的二樓打造「眾神會議廳」,藉由許願抽籤互動機制、神將對話的設計,呈現即使看不到但神明一直都在的信仰意象。三樓則是「大溪應援部」,採集年復一年守護遶境文化細節的角色,以人物攝影搭配故事,延續遶境文化中的工藝與精神,更展現整座城市在信仰中的凝聚力。

The exhibition showcased the connection between people and gods, especially during the traditional ceremony preparations. The exhibition aimed at showcasing how the gods are always around. Thanks to a photographic display, the story behind the ceremonies was also showcased and made people to realize the cohesion of the entire township within the faith.
