前言

时空的维度

策展人:石明 李季

摄影术自发明至今,已经经历一百八十多年的风风雨雨,随着科学技术的不断发展变化,摄影也在不断地发展变化,从湿版、胶片、数字化影像,摄影也越来越趋于大众化,面对这一趋势,对于一个真正意义的摄影家来说,其挑战与考量也就不言而喻了。

我们知道,作为一个真正意义影像艺术家,除了具备独立的艺术个性外,其创作态度、创作思维方式也将是独立的。也就是说,如何在思考摄影本质属性的过程中,怎样把自己的创作构想融入到丰富的资源背景中,通过摄影的形式,把自己心灵的思考,转换成一种动力,创作出具有个性的、又具时代感的影像作品。从这个意义上讲,此次参展的五位影像艺术家,尽管其创作背景、创作题材不一样,但有一点是可以肯定的——那就是创作态度的严谨、创作思维的个性化是一致的。五个人都能把自己心灵的思考,转换成一种动力,传达出一种艺术家自己对观者的信息与考量。

扎西罗丹(杨学光)的《静静的硕都岗河》,借助“新纪实摄影”的手法,以其母题视觉语言的表达,“不仅难能可贵地彰显了当代影像创作的艺术创意,同时也以成熟的影像创造实践,对所谓‘后现代’摄影理论的流行说词,以具体实例揭示出了有待讨论的观念问题”。①

李志雄的《没有风景的风景》,在创作手法上充分利用高科技带给摄影的惊喜,以摄影的本质属性为依托,把自己对风景的态度表达得一览无余。看似平淡,但心静如水,艺术家彷佛就在时空的维度里自由穿梭,不见风景,确是风景。

郭鹏的作品,“一直追求早期照相术的手工方式,手工洗相、手工着色。这一繁复漫长的手工过程使艺术家的情绪得以渲染与再现……”③如艺术家自己所言,正是试图通过这种方式,诱导出他所读解到的诗意世界。

资佰&珀泊的《逝山水》,把现实生活中经常被忽视的消逝的生命体,唤醒心灵的记忆,而实现生命的感动,从而因景生情,突发对生命的思考。暴力、死亡、凄美、辛酸与荒诞,都在快门的瞬间成为永恒,被封存在历史的墓穴中,恰似一幅惟美的山水画。以中国传统山水绘画形式把暴力隐藏于凄美之下,使凄与美相互衬托,惟其凄而更美,惟其美而更凄,以历史的幻象来强调现代生活的冷酷、残暴及无着落感。

颜俊杰的影像作品《虚菩提的致幻剂》,试图把声场的表现和观者的呼吸意识相联系,以不同的画面视屏来混淆自然山水、人造风景,以及由养生按摩带来的具体触感之间的关系,最终回归到山水的幻象之中,使观者获得更加虚无的体验感。

从五位艺术家的作品中,我们不难看出,虚与实,实与虚的完美组合,如同把观者带入到一个时空隧道,让观者在时空的维度里自由地穿梭,自由地遐想。“色不异空,空不异色,色即是空,空即是色。”④在这里,恰到好处地得以印证。正因为这样,不论此次参展的艺术家应用什么样的创作形式,不论他们彰显艺术个性的方式、态度各不相同,但有一点是一致的,那就是在思考摄影本质属性的维度里,在各自心灵感悟的创作时空中,尽情地向每一个人释放着自己的艺术思维理念。

让我们在参展艺术家为我们呈现的心灵感悟的创作空间里,在观看与被观看的时空维度里,相互得到心灵的碰撞与洗礼。

Dimensions of Space Time

By Shi Ming, Li Ji

Photography has been developing for about 180 years since it was invented. And it keeps developing and being improved all the time with the development of science and technology. When we check back the milestone stages of photography technique such as wet-plate photograph, film, digital photography, we find that photography tends to be more and more in a popular style. It brings a very big challenge never seen before to those photographers who dedicate themselves to the photography art.

As a true photography artist, it is well known, in addition to an independent artist personality, the attitude and thinking style about art creation should also be independent. That is, how to incorporate artists’ own idea about art creation into abundant resource background when they ponder the essential attribute of photography, and how to transform their interior thinking to a motivation through the means of photography, and then to create the photography art work with unique personality and reflection of the time. In this way, although the five participant artists of this exhibition have different background and different themes of their artwork, they have at least one aspect in common: rigorously serious attitude and distinctive personal thought. They all achieved the success of transforming their own thought to a motivation and conveying their concern and understanding to the audients.

The photograph work “Still Shuodugang River” by Zhaxi Luodan (Yang Xueguang), in which the technique of documentary photography is applied and his native visual language is presented, “not only commendably demonstrate the artistic inspiration of contemporary photography art, but also practice this art creation with sophisticated photograph works. Responding to the popular so-called post-modernism photography theories, he reveals a number of conceptual issues subjected to discuss with detailed examples.”

Li Zhixiong’s work “The Landscape without Scenery” applies high-tech and takes full advantage of it in photography. Based on the fundamental attribute of photography, he thoroughly presents his attitude about landscape. The work looks simple, though; the artist’s calmness and interior peace can easily be felt. He seems like to be cruising in the dimensionality of space time. There is no scenery seen, but it is indeed scenery.

Guo Peng “keeps pursuing the manual skills, like photo developing and coloring, in early photography technique in his artworks. The artist’s emotion can be exaggerated and reappeared during this complicated and long manual process….” As he said, he was trying to interpret the poetic world he understood through this approach.

Zi Bai & Po Bo’s works “Vanished Landscape” focus on those vanished creatures, which are easily neglected in real life to arouse our interior memory and inspire a sensation of life, and reflection of life. Violence, death, piteous beauty, bitterness and ridiculousness all became timeless in a camera shutter’s pressing and were sealed up and kept as histories, like some esthetical landscape painting. Hiding the violence under piteous beauty by the means of traditional Chinese landscape painting results in that piteousness and beauty are being accentuated from each other. This historical illusion emphasizes a cold, brutal and indefinite reality of our life.

Yan Junjie’s video work “Subhuti’s Psychedelic” attempts to connect the representation of sound effect together with audient’s consciousness of breath. He edited different video images to mix the relation among natural landscape, man-made scenery and the vivid tactility caused by health-care massage, and eventually returned to a sort of illusion for landscape, providing audients a vague and insubstantial experience.

Apparently, these exhibiting art works all achieved a perfect combination between reality and nihility. It seems like they are bringing audients into a time tunnel so that the audients can freely cruise or daydream in the dimensionality of space time. A well known citation “rupam sunyata sunyataiva rupam rupan na” from a Buddhism scripture has been perfectly interpreted and verified. Therefore, regardless the different art creation forms the participant artists used, and different means they used to present their unique personality, and different attitudes for each of them, they have at least one in common: to present their unique artistic thought to all they want in the dimensionality of space time when they pondered the essential attribute of photography and released their sentiment.

Finally, let’s enjoy this dimensions of space time presented by these excellent artists and be stirred and purified while we are watching their works, or being watched.

About Björk Viggósdóttir

Graduated from the Art Academy of Iceland in 2006 and has since produced a number of videos and installations.

In her general practice Björk deals with visual images, emotions, sounds and sensations in a similar way to what occurs involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of live, whether in dream or at wake.

Björk works with colors, emotions, signs and other things from the everyday, which she brings to other dimensions by creating for them new perspectives and settings. In her art Björk likes to encourage her audience to use all their senses for viewing her work by using combinations of different media in her works.

She has exhibited her work across Europe, the United States and in Iceland where she frequently collaborates with composers, musicians, dancers and other artists in both solo and group exhibition.
