关于“应力场”

当物体在外力的作用下不能位移时,或由于受到外部因素的干扰,它的形态将会发生扭转、变形。这种变化既能使其内部产生相互作用的引力,又能形成一种反作用力,以抵抗外力、外因的影响。而物体受力后所导致的内部构造的运动,随着空间点的方向、大小和连续性,物体的“应力”呈现出不同的分布和不确定的状态。这是在物理学中关于“应力”及“应力场”的基本定义。

根据“应力场”概念所引申出来的语义,宽泛地指涉于由个人、群体构成的社会,在生存现实的不同境遇中,产生出各种不同的感应现象;如果延伸到国际范围,目前难民离散、移民的限制令等等正在生发的诸多事件,直接涉及到国际政治的转向,并难以预料。而狭义于第四届美术文献展之中,则是借助于这一物理学的专有名词和定义作为主题,比附予作为艺术家的另类人生,如何利用多媒介材料和艺术语言的方式,转化他们对处境的思考、判断和立场、态度,以及应对、承受、适应于种种不同的变异、扭曲的程度。同时,在“应力场”作用下,提示出塑力、合力、变力和隐力之间所形成的多重制衡关系,潜隐出其中的某种状态,从而显示了艺术家个人创作的能量,以此抵达第四届美术文献展的一种“视觉应力场”。

或许这些只是世界局势和社会转型这个复杂方程式中的一个变数而已,就像“应力场”所寓意的一般,而实际上是象征和隐喻那些正在不断发生的个体与秩序、文明与冲突等等相关的社会问题。我们认为这是对以往惯常的艺术直接投射“现实”的可能性反思,具有艺术与现实复杂想象关系的重构尝试,以及对艺术表现的丰富性再认识。通过“应力场”所关注或折射现实生活的具体性,已并非是以往宏大叙事的直接展开,却是个人生存实在经验的检视、体察与反应。这种经验不是对现实的彻底反抗,而是同现实世界的辩证关系中的一种获得。我们希望通过邀请不同国家和地区的艺术家,针对来自于外界或内心的压力所导致的紧张、焦虑,甚至不安状况的现实依存,策划并构成一次具有现实针对性、专题性的当代艺术展览。是为策划这次展览的主要切入点和明确理由。

因此,与其说这是测度于社会学意义上的“应力场”所导致的种种改变,不如说是参展艺术家对“应力场”的认知与觉知,以及作为艺术家个体感应力的表达,抑或还有此次在湖北美术馆和美术文献艺术中心空间内,此时此地、身临其境的直接感受。

On "Stress Field"

Wen anobject fails to absorb certain forces, eiter via exogenicaction or external interference, it will cange or twist its sape. Tis cange or twist generates interactional interior forces witin te object, and a counter acting force to resist te impact of external forces or causes. Tere is an internal tectonic movement caused by te force on te object. According to te direction, sie and continuity of spacepoint, te "stress" of te object sows different distributions and an uncertain state. Tis is te basic definitions of "stress" and"stress field" in pysics.

Te extended meaning of "stress field" broadly refers to te disparate reactions of individuals and groups to te different circumstances of teir survival. If we view it from an international perspective, te many events taking place, suc as te current refugee crisisand immigration restrictions, are all directly related to te rapid sifts in te international political environment, it's out comes difficult to predict. Te 4t Documentary Exibition of Fine Art borrows te temeof "stress field" from te pysical and geograpical term to express tealternative lives of artists; ow tey transform teir tinking, judgments,positions, and attitudes wit multimedia materials and artistic language, and, ow tey cope wit, accept, and adapt to different cange sand distortions. Also, under te action of "stress field", it sows te multiple cecks and balances formed between te creative power, combinative power, sifting power and secret power, revealing a sort of state, so as to sow te energy of an artist's individual creation and tus acieve a "visual stress field" witin te exibition.

Peraps tey are only variations in te complex equations of globaliationand social transformation, just as "Stress Field" implies. But in fact, tey are symbols andmetapors of te ongoing relevant social problems of individuals and order, civiliation and conflicts. We tink tis is a reflection on te possibility of customary art's direct casting of "reality", a remodeling attempt wit a complex imagining of te relationsip between art and reality, aswell as a reconsideration of te ricness of artistic expressions. Te concreteness of real life tat te "stress field" concerns itself wit, or reflects, is not te previous direct spread of grand narrative, but te inspection, observation and response of individual survival experience.Tis experience is not a complete rebellion against reality, but a kind of acquisitionin te dialectical relationsip wit te real world. By inviting artists from different countries and regions, we ope to plan and form a realistic and te matic contemporary art exibition wic reflects some of te tensions andanxieties caused by pressures from te outward and inward worlds, and even te uneasiness caused by reality. Tis is te main focus and clear reason of tis exibition.

Terefore, instead of te evaluation of various canges caused by sociological "stress field", it is more about te exibited artists' cognition of "stress field", and teir expressions of principle forces as individual artists, and also, peraps,  teir immediate feelings wen tey are personally in te space of te Hubei Museum of Art, and te Fine Arts Literature Art Center.
