《她沒說的》月經繪本

吳致怡  /   文圖

生於台灣台北,曾任職於Daniel Wong擔任印花設計師,後辭職於國立交通大學應藝術研究所就讀。現則長期擔任社團法人花蓮縣牛犁社區交流協會設計師。負責產品設計、地方視覺、平面設計等。因接觸社區工作,開始關注女性議題,以及社區營造、社區設計、在地社區文化的保存與活化等相關地方實踐工作。希望之後能多花點時間看周星馳的電影,因為從小到大,只要有人跟我說周星馳的電影台詞、笑話,我都從來跟不上 。

Things She Never Said

by  Chih-Yi Wu

As a visual artist, Chih-Yi Wu has been devoting her attention and effort to women’s issues, community design, and practical endeavors to preserve and activate local community cultures since she started engaging in community work.

《她沒說的》是一本以月經為主題的繪本。在2018年的《在縱谷做一場好夢——阿嬤的秘密》的月經捕夢網展覽後,採訪了花蓮豐田地區的長輩,以她們的月經經歷創作而成。以「看見自己或她人經歷過月經後的感受」為出發點來創作繪本,看見未來女性的權益。繪本故事內容關於阿嬤們難以啟齒的過往,所以才有了將繪本故事命名為《她沒說的》的想法,也有著希望透過圖像敘事得以言說的含義。「她」不僅僅指向女孩的媽媽,也指向過往甚至未來時代所有的女性。

這個故事希望不只回應阿嬤們告訴我,關於過去女性面對月經的故事;也為了整理在腦海裡面所有關於歧視、污名化、月經意義的釐清。想要更貼近過去時代的模樣,告訴自己一定還有更適合的故事與畫面,在故事構思與角色發想的過程中修改了無數次。很感謝豐田地區的長輩們提供的老照片,我也試圖把看見的景色融合在圖像裡。很感謝過程間所有幫助我的人,也感謝牛犁協會,在我和之前的工作提離職之後還能夠有機會見到這麼有生命力的地方。以及細心提供故事、構圖建議給我的賴雯淑老師,還有在我每次準備獨自面對情緒時總是幫助我的楊富民。

原本在六月初打算要辦第一次的個展,也很緊張的把一切準備好,因為疫情的關係在佈展前緊急轉為線上展覽,網站是自己架的如果有操作不順的地方也歡迎反饋給我。裡面包含了創作繪本的部分歷程、田調紀錄與完成圖、手稿等等,希望有興趣的人看完也可以跟我分享你的想法。

The picture book Things She Never Said illustrates the elder women's experience of menstruation in Taiwan, created from the perspective of a contemporary woman and based on true stories collected through interviews.

 

The interviews revealed that menstruation was perceived as women’s secret in traditional society. Menstrual taboos and concealment have not only influenced the women’s self-identity of women of previous generations but also impacted the development of females of our generation.

 

Starting from “understanding ourselves or others’ experiences and feelings of menstruation,” Things She Never Said dedicate to raise awareness of women’s rights. It is suitable for girls who are about to start their periods. This book is not only for teenage girls but also for parents to talk about menstruation with their children. Little by little, it can make people feel comfortable to discuss every single change of our body while growing up.
