    Corner of the Park | Prologue

    (“Cross Domain”Sino-Japanese Youth Art Exhibition,Jin Ji Lake Art Museum,Suzhou,China)


    In the process of reading through his childhood diaries, a long-forgotten image reemerges in the author s mind. This project is about returning to the scene of memory in search of evidence of an individual s existence. It forms a fragmented mosaic through 81 interrelated threads. This is a visual novel that continuously unfolds within the space of the museum.This prologue to Corner of the Park being exhibited here is based on the painting Hunters in the Snow by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. This is a five channel computer-generated video in which five corners of the world sometimes align as a unified whole, and sometimes divide into separate comers, but all of this is merely a portion of the world. The five channel installation is generated by a computer. The continuous camera shot appears to wander through the ruins of memory in a dream realm, with dreams and memories weaving together in fabrication. As the channels converge and diverge, objects serve as backdrops for each other. Concealed behind the curtains of memory are the “actors” out of their makeup, and scenes repressed by the subconscious.The Moving Image Installation is a chapter of the author's Project"Mnemosyne".


    公园一角 | 序

    (交叉域--中日当代艺术新锐展,金鸡湖美术馆,苏州,中国)


    作品延续近几年关注的个体记忆问题。《公园一角|序》的启发来自博鲁盖尔的一张风俗画《雪中猎人》,画中背景里有很多不起眼的一个个小人,在劳动、在交谈。他们的人生一定有无数的喜怒哀乐和细节,但是终究都埋在历史的大叙述里,或者掩埋在画面主体的阴影中了。我在回忆自己生命里那些擦肩而过的一个个人,就像画中背景里那些极其容易被忽略的角落,但是作者在描画他们的时候花了那么多心思,他一定是在提示他们的重要性。就像《红楼梦》和《追忆似水年华》的作者极力描述的,那些琐碎和细节对他们个人是那么的重要。这个5屏幕的3D数字影像装置,关于重回记忆的现场,去寻找一个人存在的证据,完成一个碎片化的拼图。这是一部在展览空间中持续展开的视觉小说。多个视角的世界时而成为一个整体,时而成为分离的角落,然而,一切都只是这个完整世界的一个局部。多屏装置由计算机软件渲染生成,从头至尾一镜到底,如同一个梦境中的漫游者,在记忆中的废墟中穿梭,梦境和回忆在偏离和虚构中交织。在若即若离的镜头中,物与物之间互为背景。记忆的幕间,藏着幕后那些卸妆的演员们,那些潜意识中被压抑的现场。
