2018 A4国际艺术家驻留项目: 对谈-《语言的纹理、沉默和翻转》2018 A4 Artist in Residence International Exchange Program: Talk-"The texture, silence and reversal of language"

Talk: Residency Artist Youngjae Lih & Scholar Zhang Yi; Exhibition: Of Crossed Paths

    李荣宰一直以来关注人的记忆和认识的形成中的遮盖,这个主题依旧贯穿于他在成都的工作,他将这里的一些有趣的点放到这个庞大且成型的系统当中,基于图像的复杂性、日常性,个体如何构建自身的历史和城市的历史。

   这次的创作主要包含两个部分,一个部分是用艺术家自制的“眼镜”制作的海量图像,另一个部分是他在城市中随意游走时捕获的图像在不同文化间“流通”的痕迹——即来自不同文化的图像的挪用与并置,以及由此带来的荒诞、奇异或习以为常,都成为城市景观的一部分。它们共同构成整体时间维度里人类关于城市的印象与记忆。

   李荣宰的个展开幕当天,我们会请艺术家与学者一起,谈论关于个体记忆/意识的形成肌理,及文化交流、时间流逝以及城市空间的思考。

   Youngjae Lih has always been concerned about the covering machanism in human memory and cognition. In his piece in Chengdu, he places interesting points into this larger, ready-made system. Through their complexity and ordinariness, the artist uses these images to construct a history, a history of this city in individual’s eyes.

   Lih’s work in Chengdu contains two parts. Unseen I/II are seas of pictures produced by using the “glasses” made by himself. Of Crossed Paths Series records the traces of the communication in different cultures, the appropriation and juxtaposition of images from different cultures. The resulting absurdity, strangeness, or ordinariness became part of the urban landscape, impressions and memories of the city within the temporal dimension.

  In the opening of his exhibition in A4 Art Museum, we also invited professor Zhang Yi to have a talk with the artist, to discuss about the mechanism of human memory, the connections between different cultures, the passage of time, and urban space.
