Before Indulgence, After Freedom

2013, Color & Sound, HD video, 15min 50sec

“Before Indulgence, After Freedom”, the theme is a description of the ‘Grey’ area during my creation. I think we have to face the normalcy that there is something beyond description during the process of art production. Like the broken languages, the un-shareable knowledge and experiences, the performance out of state, etc., instead of critique, they are another reality indeed. Such kind of situation is like an interesting veil which makes it difficult to tell from works of each other, or it could be interpret but out of context. Therefore, we are indulged in an untouchable status.

I want to show a tip of iceberg of the creation by this video, which reveals a variety of components, as the words, confession, repentance, retrospection, declaration, deduction, etc. are all included into this fragmentary, broken, and partial set. All the expressions seem to be lack of objects, responses, and mutual spirit. Somewhat embarrassingly, time after time, we experience the social events that have already been put into the material library and mix them with the expression of the emotions which is consistent ostensibly but discontinues actually. “How to deal with the pause during our conversation?”, “How to share the shape of cogitation with each other?”, “What are we producing?” these questions are only arouse from a twist of my creation.

 

 

放纵之前,自由之后

2013/彩色有声高清录像/15分50秒

“放纵之前,自由之后”这个题目是我对于创作中处于某种“灰色”地带的描述,我相信难以表述正是创作中及需要正视的常态。已然割裂的语境,无法达成共识的知识经验,不在状态的表演等等;这并非一种批判,而是另一种现实,这种现实像一层似乎极为志趣的面纱,让我们各自对彼此的创作难以描述,或者可以描述却断章取义,使得我们沉溺在这种不可触碰的状态中。

这件作品仅仅是我希望对于创作本身所撕开的一个截面,这个截面中呈现的是各样的零部件,其中的言语、表白、忏悔、追忆、申诉、演绎等等,通通被列入了这个零碎的、片段的、局部的布景中。一切的表达似乎都没有对象,没有关照,没有相互呼应的精神性,于是尴尬的是,我们又正共处于这个看似开诚布公的舞台之上,一次次重复演绎着成为素材库的社会事件,再将此混入看似一致却无法连贯的情绪表达中。
