TOWARDS EVENINGS

The Restorations


《创作现场的还原》





For this long creative process, the artist’s work entails a great deal of research, categorization, integration with countless trials and errors. The amount of time dedicated to each piece is hard to estimate, hence every stage of art-making progresses unpredictably. Often, every step forward is followed by two steps back - an experience that has distorted the artist’s sense of time as certain moments have melted into an indistinguishable mass before the project comes to an end. By marking these critical vantage points throughout the process so that the artist could re-adjust her coordinates, she reconstructs the scenes at her studio in various stages, to serve as the parallels to the presentations of the project. 

The restorations completed to date:
Peer to Peer, Shanghai Center of Photography, Shanghai, 2019 / Anyball, CAFA Art Museum, Beijing, 2017
Snacks, The Power Station of Art, Shanghai, 2016 / Linguistic Pavilion, Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai, 2016   

长期项目的创作往往涉及持久且大量的收集、研究、整合与试错。在进一步退两步的折返跑中,创作者需要日常去克服时间感的失调,而其中最为典型的症状即,将作品完成前的所有时间一概视作没有区别的时间。为了给这些混沌的时间以区别,借以标记创作的进度,同时调校自己的坐标,艺术家会不定时地对《向晚六章》的创作现场进行还原。作目的平行作业,此举亦记录了一个长期计划在自我修订过程里不居的面貌。


目前已完成:
“后浪”,上海摄影艺术中心,上海,2019 /  “球场”,中央美术学院美术馆,北京,2017
“零食”,上海当代艺术博物馆,上海,2016 / “语言亭”,民生现代美术馆,上海,2016
