Mont sainte – victoire

2012, live performance, video installation, dimensions variable

Mont Sainte-Victoire is a mountain located in South France, which artist Paul Cezanne had a full view of from his studio.  During Cezanne’s lifetime, he had painted dozens of paintings depicting this mountain. Li Ran uses the mountain’s name as the exhibition title, trying to construct his own entry point into this modernist aesthetic, whilst re-viewing fragmented experiences that are grounded in our own history. Li Ran has compiled a four-part statement comprising of the themes: Reflection of Images and Scenes, Gaze, Competition and Encounter. During the exhibition opening, a live performance took place with the artist mimicking voice-over styles from 1970s-1980s’ Chinese dubbed movies. The performance is accompanied with a display of three automatically timed projectors exhibiting a continuous loop of more than 200 photographic slides. The images of these slides feature ‘image extracts’ culled from the artist’s own aesthetic experiences of modern historical images of the ‘west’ found in textbooks and art history.

圣维克多尔山

2012/ 现场表演、幻灯片装置/ 34分36秒/ 尺寸可变

圣维克多尔山是座落在法国南部的一座山。从艺术家保罗·塞尚的画室推开窗户便可以望见整座山,他一生为此山画过几十幅作品。我的作品(同名展览)也取用这座山的名字作为题目,试图自我建造一条通往现代主义美学的通道,再次观看消沉于我们自身历史之中的经验碎片。我编纂了四个剧目的陈述,分别为“反射的图景”、“凝视”、“竞技”、“偶遇”,并以模仿七八十年代中文译制片配音的方式进行现场表演。在现场表演的同时伴随三台幻灯机循环播放着两百多张幻灯边,这些幻灯片的内容来自我依照我自身的美学经验所截取的“局部”图片,其来源于艺术史与西方现代历史图片。
