  • Tangled Up in Robert Morris (1931–2018) – 罗伯特·莫 …

    I saw my first Robert Morris sculpture eight years ago, around the time I moved to New York. I had recently finished with school and the city was already upending my life. I didn’t know who I was or who I wanted to be. Every object and surface, face and friendship trembled with possibility. Contact with anything or anyone threatened to utterly transform me. This was worrisome. How could I change if I didn’t quite know myself? The Morris sculpture – pinned to a wall in a stranger’s apartment in Chelsea – was grey, velvety, untitled, its date unknown to me; it hung alongside other huge, expensive sculptures and paintings, mostly by artists whose names I recognized from museums. This was not a home where I had ever expected to have dinner, but a friend of a friend was house sitting, so I was invited over for noodles. – 八年前,当我搬到纽约的时候,我看到了我的第一尊罗伯特·莫里斯雕塑。我最近完成了学业,这个城市已经改变了我的生活。我不知道我是谁,也不知道我想成为谁。每一个物体和表面、面孔和友谊都因可能性而颤抖。接触任何威胁要彻底改变我的人或事。这令人担忧。如果我对自己不太了解,我怎么能改变呢?莫里斯雕塑——钉在切尔西一个陌生公寓的墙上——是灰色的、天鹅绒般的、无标题的,它的年代对我来说是未知的;它和其他巨大的、昂贵的雕塑和绘画一起悬挂,大多数是由我从博物馆里认出的艺术家创作的。这不是我原本想吃晚饭的家,但是朋友的一个朋友在家里坐着,所以我被邀请过来吃面条。

    I wish we didn’t have to read Chris Kraus, and this week I read her aloud to my students, quoting passages on Kate Newby, Henry Taylor and Channa Horwitz, all from her new book Social Practices (Semiotext(e) 2018). Kraus’s criticism is generous and warm. But, it is written from a world I wish we didn’t live in. – 我希望我们不必读克里斯·克劳斯,这周我向学生大声朗读了她,引用了凯特·纽比、亨利·泰勒和钱娜·霍维茨的新书《社会实践》(Semiotext(e)2018)中的段落。但是,它是从一个我希望我们没有生活的世界写成的。

    To experience the music of the composer, who passed away last week at the age of 69, was to hear something tense, physical, almost pugilistic – 为了体验这位作曲家上周逝世69岁时的音乐,他听到的是一些紧张的、身体的、几乎是拳击的东西。
