The topics of “freedom” and “newness” have always been discussed at the level of “formal language”. This film is based on the photo samples of clothes from Shanghai Garment Factory (garment production) from the spring of 1979 to early 80s, they are shown in the video one after the other in a slow motion.

Different from the samples from 1977 and 1978, the freedom of garment production was suddenly released in the spring of 1979, the bulk of clothes were circulated after imitation and production. On the one hand, these beautiful folds and the forms of clothes were full of expectations for the future, showing their rich emotions to the modern life in the spring breeze. On the other side, however, our broken and separated consciousness have never been repaired as the reform and open-up went on. What co-located with this film are several deformed, misplaced and dismembered plaster sculptures. All the irreconcilable appearance in front of us has served as the reason for us to wait.

对于自由的话题始终在形式语言这个层面交替更变着,这些改革开放后,从1979年春到80年代初期,上海服装厂(服装生产)的参考样本照片在动态影像中极为缓慢的交叠变化,而与77年,78年的参考样本大不相同,这些服装生产形式的自由在79年春天突然一瞬间被释放,批量的模仿、产出之后流通,那些漂亮的褶皱,满怀着对未来的期许,迎着春风展现着自身对于现代的丰富情感,而另一面我们破碎而割裂的意识却没有因这些变化而被修复。而与这个影像共置是数个变形、错位、肢解的肢体雕塑。而其中一切的不可整合的面貌都成为了我们等待的基础。
