  • The Expectation of Spectacle: an Interview with Mike Nelso …

    2019.01.16 · 发表评论

    We interviewed the British artist Mike Nelson on the occasion of his monumental intervention at the OGR in Turin; a large wooden structure, leads into the space, resembling a large billboard or the screen of a drive-in, once beyond it visitors find themselves inside a dimly lit environment where, amid pressed rubble, there are about twenty parked cars, covered with dust and in complete abandon. Different epochs and genres collide within the installation: a recent past rubs against an almost archaeological dimension (or perhaps a near future?), the rubble on the floor reeks of precariousness, an ambiguity between a recent demolition, an in-progress apocalypse whilst hinting to the potential of reconstruction, together creating an overwhelming tone of expectation and suspense. – 我们采访了英国艺术家迈克·尼尔森,当时他在都灵的“食人魔”进行了一次具有纪念意义的干预活动。这是一个巨大的木结构,通向太空,就像一个巨大的广告牌或一个开车进去的屏幕,一旦超过它,游客就会发现自己置身于一个光线暗淡的环境中,在被压的碎石中,大约有20辆车停在那里。汽车,被灰尘覆盖,完全废弃。不同的时代和体裁在装置内发生了碰撞:最近的过去与几乎考古的层面(或者可能是不久的将来)发生了摩擦。地板上的碎石散发出不稳定的气息,在最近的一次拆迁中模糊了,在暗示重建潜力的同时,正在进行的天启,共同创造了一种压倒一切的期待和悬念。

    On 9 January 2019, Leave Means Leave – a cross-party pro-Brexit pressure group with close ties to Leave.EU and Nigel Farage – sent a letter to the Charity Commission for England and Wales accusing The Photographers’ Gallery in London of ‘possibly criminal’ use of taxpayers’s money to fund ‘anti-Brexit propaganda’, and demanding that the gallery’s charitable status be withdrawn. Anticipating protest, The Photographers’ Gallery sought legal advice from the Arts Council long before artist Jonas Lund’s propaganda office Operation Earnest Voice (2019) was unveiled. In the Charity Commission guidelines, political activity is considered legitimate on the condition that it supports the delivery of an institution’s charitable purposes. The gallery affirms that Lund’s work fulfils their charitable objective to exhibit new media and technology that responds to the evolving nature of photography in the 21st century – in this case, the targeted dissemination of advertisements that played a pivotal role in the result of the EU referendum. – 2019年1月9日,休假意味着休假——一个与休假关系密切的跨党派支持脱欧的压力集团。欧盟和奈杰尔·法拉奇(Nigel Farage)向英格兰和威尔士慈善委员会(Charity Commission for England Wales)发出了一封信,指控伦敦的摄影师画廊“可能是犯罪的”利用纳税人的钱资助“反脱欧宣传”,并要求泰国政府批准该计划。画廊的慈善地位将被取消。在艺术家Jonas Lund的宣传办公室Operation Earnest Voice(2019)揭幕之前,摄影师的画廊期待着抗议,就向艺术委员会寻求法律建议。在慈善委员会的指导方针中,政治活动被认为是合法的,前提是它支持一个机构的慈善目的的实现。画廊确认,Lund的作品实现了他们的慈善目标,展示新媒体和新技术,以响应21世纪摄影的发展本质——在这种情况下,有针对性地传播广告,这在欧盟公投的结果中起到了关键作用。

  • Blow it to Smithereens? The Fate of Berthold Lubetkin’s Mo …

    2019.01.11 · 发表评论

    ‘Perhaps it’s time to blow it to smithereens’ – with this comment Sasha Lubetkin, the daughter of modernist architect Berthold, has reignited the debate over what to do with the Penguin Pool at London Zoo, which has sat abandoned for more than a decade after its little waddling inhabitants were removed. The fate of this tiny Grade I listed structure, frivolous and avant garde in equal measure, is a microcosm of the legacy of modernist architecture in the UK, which for some reason is still capable of stirring up culture war angst almost a century later. – “也许是时候把它炸成碎片了”——现代主义建筑师伯托德的女儿萨沙·鲁贝特金(Sasha Lubetkin)发表了这一评论,重新引发了关于如何处理伦敦动物园企鹅池的争论。在伦敦动物园的企鹅池被移走后,企鹅池被遗弃了十多年。这座小小的一级建筑的命运,同样是轻浮前卫的,是英国现代主义建筑遗产的缩影,出于某种原因,它在近一个世纪后仍然能够激起文化战争的焦虑。

  • The Cynicism of Netflix’s Interactive ‘Black Mirror: Bande …

    2019.01.11 · 发表评论

    The high-profile return of the interactive movie was not inevitable; the last time around, such a project barely made a cultural dent. 1995’s Mr. Payback opened on 37 screens to critical disdain and barely any audience; wrapping up the year in film, Roger Ebert singled it out as not just the year’s worst movie, but the year’s worst idea for a movie. The choices (with the audience voting through joysticks attached to their cinema seats) in the 20 to 30-minute narrative weren’t of much import; it’s a low-stakes comedy in which all decisions made lead to a happy ending, so the decisions were more along the lines of, should Freddy Krueger make a cameo? – 互动电影的高调回归并不是不可避免的;上一次,这样的项目几乎没有对文化造成影响。1995年的《回报先生》在37个银幕上上映,遭到了批评的蔑视,几乎没有观众;在影片的最后一年,罗杰·埃伯特将其选为不仅是今年最差的电影,也是今年最差的电影创意。20到30分钟的叙述中的选择(观众通过附在电影院座位上的操纵杆投票)并不重要;这是一部风险很低的喜剧,所有的决定都会带来一个愉快的结局,所以这些决定更符合弗雷德·克鲁格应该拍摄一部吗?

  • Looking Back 2018: Brazil and the Body-Electric – 回 …

    2019.01.08 · 发表评论

    2018 was a year marked by flames. From California’s recent wildfires to the extinction of the National Museum in Rio de Janeiro in a devastating fire this past September, this was, to say the least, a gruelling year. I suspect that the Brazilian government’s slovenliness with landmark architecture and historical preservation is not far from Trump’s biased blind eye towards climate change; their actions are the outcome of neglect and greed. – 2018年是一个充满火焰的年份。从加利福尼亚最近的野火到去年9月里约热内卢国家博物馆在一场毁灭性的大火中被扑灭,至少可以说,这是一个令人生厌的一年。我怀疑,巴西政府在标志性建筑和历史保护方面的迟缓,离特朗普对气候变化的偏见视而不见不远;他们的行为是忽视和贪婪的结果。

  • 十二月三十一日星期一,没有展览多可惜! (群展)

    2019.01.01 · 发表评论

    001从《1844年经济学哲学手稿》到《剩余价值理论》,马克思近乎完备地探讨了艺术生产的一般规律和历史、资本之间的关系。对生产理论的接受,使得艺术愈发趋向于通过人类学、政治经济学等视角进行切入社会现实。艺术生产的效率和效益,与大众劳动是否增长有着密切的关系。因此,我们长时间里接受的“认真”的态度,在经济起伏的年代,会被某种打破常规的态度所颠覆和取代。让艺术家应付一个作品和让艺术家认真对待一个作品,两种看似对立的态度都体现了特定的创作思路、态度乃至于观念。“应付”作为一种更加开放和自由的态度,有可能打破艺术家惯常的思维路径,取消作品的结构闭合以及观念闭合,也就有可能在作品中泄露更多意想不到的秘密和意义。故而,应付的态度看似内涵着一种“反艺术创作”的目的性,其最终的指向却是一种“消极的创造力”。
