「生命字典」是由林宏璋所發起的藝術計畫,致力於保存面臨消失的人、事、物, 藉此抵禦各種權力對生命的宰制。主要以田野調查、訪談和各種形式的社群互動為方法,並透過檔案化的影、音、文字資料等呈現。這次的計畫關乎綠島在地居民與台灣警備總司令部「新生訓導處」(1951-1965)時期關押的白色恐怖政治犯之間的關係性生命政治處境。

「流麻溝15號」這個特別戶籍存在超過四十年,同時在籍人數包含政治犯與軍職人員最多高達三千人,幾乎等同於當時綠島在地人口。根據這些受訪耆老們的回憶,這批「思想犯」來到綠島後,對此地的土地風貌、節慶文化、醫療、教育、交通、飲食等各方面,都產生不小影響。林宏璋以藝術計畫象徵性地調度藝術、社會、生活之間的界限,並以文字檔案、影音資料和物件呈現的方式,將展覽引向共感性的開放,以第一人稱的敘事,呈現白色恐怖國家暴力下「緘默」的被壓迫者的生命情境。


The "Bio-Dictionary" is an art project initiated by Hong-John Lin in an attempt to fight against forceful domination by documenting the people, events and things that bear witness yet will soon be gone. He conducted field surveys, interviews and various forms of social interaction and delivered with image, sound and text files. The project is focused on comparing lives and political situations between ordinary locals and political inmates imprisoned in the New Life Correction Center by Taiwan Garrison Commander on the Green Island from 1951 to 1965.

"Liomagou No. 15" used to be a special address. For over forty years, it was the registered residence of up to three thousand people including political prisoners and servicemen, almost equal to the population of ordinary Green Islanders at that time. During the interviews, some local elderly people recalled of the significant changes in the landscape, festivities, healthcare, education, transportation and food culture after the "ideological criminals" arrived at the Green Island. In this project, the artist makes a symbolic arrangement of the boundaries between art, society and life, allowing a sympathetic engagement with the texts, multi-media materials and objects on display. The life situation of the victims oppressed and silenced under the state violence during the White Terror is described in a first-person narrative.
