海滩

卡尔·萨根(Carl Sagan)将地球称之为“苍白的小蓝点(The Pale Blue Dot)”——“地球,一切幸福与痛苦的集合……成千种宗教信仰、意识形态、经济学说……所有的一切都维系在这个悬浮在宇宙中的小尘埃上。”人类,神圣而又渺小,坚强而又脆弱;苦苦探索着世界,尘埃一般消逝。

在《海滩》中,从高空俯视的人变成了形态各异的点,尘埃一般散落在海洋中。个人的情感隐匿于一种更宏观的存在,变成了剥离掉个体差异的群像——抽象的、几何的、纯粹的景观。

而另一套作品《岛屿》,将纯粹的、中性的世界抽离之后,如同具有自我意识的生命体一般;莫名并且质樸。

展厅尽头是一件巨大的纯白色霓虹灯线圈,形似漂浮在海里的人,又似散落在海里的岛。

如细胞一般的岛屿,如岛屿一般的人群。寂静的、喧闹的;静止的、涌动的;温吞的、敏感的。散落在真空之中。

群星闪烁,大地无言。

 

BEACH

Carl Sagan calls Earth 'the pale blue dot'. 'The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines ... on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.'(Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994) Sacred and insignificant, staunch and fragile, human beings explore the world strenuously, and disappear like dust. 

In Beach, overlooked from high-altitude, people turn into varied-shaped dots, drifting in the ocean. Personal feelings are concealed in some kind of being with more macroscopic scale, and transform into images of a group of people whose personal differences have been stripped off - an abstract, geometrical, and pure scene.

Another work 'Islands' seems a self-conscious living organism, after the pure and neutral world has been extracted; it is strange and artless.

At the end of the exhibition hall lies a huge pure-white neon coil, like people floating in the sea,  or islands scattered in the sea.

The islands just like cells, and crowds just like islands - they are calm and clamorous, still and turbulent, mild and sensitive, scattered in the vacuum.

The stars are twinkling, and the earth taciturn.

 

The Room Of True Words 真言屋(夜走黑桥)

Added on by Kong Lingnan.

Here I and Cui Cancan exchange the roles of artist and cuartor,This is a tipical structure of tautology,and also self-referential.We are cause and effect for each other,because what we have been always talking about is only the “game” itself . Till now , “The Room Of True Words”has compeleted its closed cycle.——kongLingnan

在此我与崔灿灿互换了艺术家与策展人的身份。这是一个典型的同义反复结构,同时也是自指性的。我们双方互为因果,原因在于我们从始至终都在谈论“游戏”本身而已。至此,“真言屋”走完了一个闭合的回路。-------孔令楠
