[碼頭旁的老倉庫] The Pier-2 Art Centre, Kaohsiung

In many countries the old warehouses by the harbour have been transformed into spaces for art and dining. The same applies to the Pier-2 Art Centre in Kaohsiung. The red-brick buildings of this warehouse district have now been trasnformed into a hub for exhibitions, shops, restaurants and concerts. As... (continue in English here)

之前就一直有聽過許多有趣的展&餐廳在駁二但一直沒機會去,這次終於拉了 Monsieur 陪我一起去看看。這個位在港邊的老倉庫區還保留了許多很有味道的紅磚矮建築,乍看下其實和...

 

臺北的一些舊倉庫改造成文創園區有還滿多相似之處,不過因為是在港口邊,所以還是有些不同的氛圍。

you walk around the area, you may find pleasant surprises along the way.

 走進這些紅磚舊倉庫群的建築,其實感覺也還滿特別的。&其實有點像臺北的華山藝文中心一旁的紅磚建築群,裏面也單是一些展示文創物的店或餐廳/cafe. 其實在駁二有幾間不錯的 cafe/餐廳這次因為我們才剛吃飽&沒有太多時間在這所以就沒去,不過下次還滿想去check them out!

這間賣的還滿特別的,因為裏面的衣物是你可以 "客製化", 例如要作件t-shirt, 牆上有不同的 "布塊包"你可以選購 (eg. 要買左邊綠色袖子,右邊藍色袖子,T-shirt 後面布用另外一個顏色等). 
This shop was quite interesting. You could "customize" a shirt by choosing the different pieces of fabric you'd like to use for the various part of your shirt from a selection of fabric "pouches" on a wall. & Their store sign says "WE ARE NOT A FACTORY BUT A GROUP OF TAILORS".

這邊還有一間賣文具的店也是很特別,這檯店員再用的收銀機是古董&真的可以用喔!
There's also a very interseting stationary store with some fun antiques (eg. this cash machine antique actually still works!)

倉庫除了賣文創小物的店外,也有許多有趣的餐飲小店鋪。
Other than selling hand-craft or artsy things, there were also little shops selling snacks, ice-cream, cotton candy, etc.

倉庫群的展覽館和戶外藝術,其實同時在這邊展出的展覽也滿多的,像是我們去時同時有下面這個蠟筆小新展、 Snoopy 65 週年巡迴展、 Rody Land 跳跳馬 30 週年大展,還有其他免費或收費的小展。   
Usually there are quite a few exhibitions ongoing at the same time. When we were there, there were exhibitions on Snoopy 65th Anniversary, Rody Land 30th Anniversay,  Crayon Xiaoxin (Japanese),  etc.

其實這邊的假日還滿擁擠的,尤其是在店面裏面常常擠了滿多人,展覽若是不錯的展也滿多都是要排隊。
The Art Centre area is quite busy on weekends. If you want to avoid the queues for exhibitions or don't want to be squeezing through people in stores, can consider going on a weekday.

因為對現在的那些展都不是特別有興趣,所以就是到處晃晃拍拍照,&看到這個免費的展覽就進去看看。
If you don't want to see any of the exhibition that requires an admission fee, there are also other free exhibitions that you could check out.

這個展叫: - How Sweet? 以食物來講述"人生況味"的展覽. 
"在日常軌跡中,最廣為探討的人生課題,透過部落客的動人圖文,感受人生各階段的甜蜜序曲。"
