有关薛滔2014年个展“非常日常•贰”:

2001年创库的成立带来了云南首次集中的艺术家群体实验,其中群展“体检”(2002)、“羊来了”(2002)和“影子”(2003)将本土70后艺术家的整体面貌向公众充分展现。随后他们以群体方式出现在上海、北京等地,云南新生代的艺术力量得到迅猛发展。薛滔作为这时期成长起来的实验艺术家、活动策划人,产生了非常重要的推动作用。

薛滔1975年生于云南大理,1994年在大理创办云南首个现代艺术群体“红心社”,2005年在北京创建“候鸟天空”艺术空间,积极推动云南艺术家与各地的联络。2012年他从北京回到昆明,积极推介本地新兴艺术家,为年轻艺术家撰写文章。作为活动组织人、策划人、联络人,他为云南本地艺术家做出了极大的贡献。

薛滔的学艺经历在70后艺术家中具有代表性,他从传统学院艺术起步,学习色彩与造型,采用现代主义理念与方法进行创作,之后进入全球化情境中的当代艺术,用个人化语言表达全球化语境中的艺术关切。薛滔自2000年以来始终采用报纸创作装置作品,其作品具有明确简练的形式和厚重感,为普通的报纸赋予十分特别的陌生效果。薛滔在三个层面展开了形式实验:有关时间的形式,有关能量的形式以及有关语言的形式。

薛滔曾代表中国艺术家受邀参加2007年至2008年在欧洲巡展的“中国电站”艺术展,该展览集中呈现了中国艺术家的新生代力量,获得广泛影响。薛滔也于2008年参加欧洲极负盛誉的法国圣•艾蒂安设计双年展。

薛滔于2007年在上海、北京举办首次个展《非常日常》,时隔七年,他将首次在家乡云南展示他的报纸类装置作品个展《非常日常•贰》,并在曾经举办过“体检”和“羊来了”等云南实验艺术的重要阵地TCG诺地卡画廊举办。这次展览将集中呈现薛滔自2007年以来的14件代表作,这将是云南首个装置艺术的个展,由此见证他在艺术创作上的持续探索。

展览将于2014年7月11日晚上8点在TCG诺地卡画廊开幕,我们诚邀您拔冗参加,欣赏一场装置艺术的盛宴!

Extraordinary Daily: Xue Tao Solo Exhibition 2014

Curator: Luo Fei
Host by TCG Nordica Gallery
Opening: 8pm, July 11, 2014
Exhibition Duration: July 11 – Aug 30, 2014
Address: TCG Nordica, Chuangku, Xibalu 101, Kunming, China

The launch of the Loft in 2001 started putting the collective experimentation of Yunnan’s artists on stage for the first time. Among them were the group exhibitions like “Experience” (2002), “Sheep is coming” (2002) and “Shadow” (2003) that showcased to the public the overall outlook of Yunnan’s post-70s local artists. Later on, they made their presence known collectively in Shanghai, Beijing, and other cities. A new generation of Yunnanese artistic forces had witnessed a dynamic development. Xue Tao, being one of the experimental artists and event planners from this period of time, has had a very important role in promoting this development.

Xue was born in 1975 in Dali, Yunnan. He founded Yunnan’s first modern art community – the Red Heart Commune in Dali and later on the Migratory Sky Art Space in Beijing in 2005. He has always been actively promoting interaction between Yunnan’s artists and those from other places. He moved from Beijing back to Kunming in 2012 and devoted his efforts to introduce local emerging artistic talents, and to write articles for the young artists. As an event organizer, planner, and contact person, he has made great contributions to Yunnan’s local artist community.

Xue’s artistic journey was typical among the post-70s artists. He began with the traditional academic arts, picked up the languages of colors and models along the way, and started to make art with modernist ideas and methods. After entering into the contemporary art in the context of globalization, he employs personal language to express his artistic concerns in such a scenario. Xue has been creating installation works with newspapers since 2000. With clean and concise forms and their unique heaviness, his works add to the ordinary newspapers a special effect of unfamiliarity. Xue approaches the form experimentation at three levels, namely the forms concerning time, energy and language.

On behalf of the Chinese artists, Xue was invited to participate in the European Tour of the “Chinese Power Plant” Art Exhibition in 2007 to 2008. This Exhibition highlighted the power of China’s younger generation artists, and it was highly acclaimed. Xue also attended one of Europe’s most prestigious art events – Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne 2008 in France.

Xue held his first solo exhibition – “Extraordinary Daily” in Shanghai, Beijing in 2007. Seven years later, he is to present his newspaper installation solo exhibition “Extraordinary Daily II” in his hometown – Yunnan. The location is exactly where Yunnan’s experimental art projects such as “Experiences” and “Sheep is Coming” were held – TCG Nordica. This Exhibition will focus on 14 representative works of Xue’s since 2007. It’s going to be his first installation art exhibition in Yunnan, testifying the ceaseless exploration in his artistic creation.

The Exhibition will be opened at 8 P.M. on July 11, 2014 at TCG Nordica. We would like to cordially invite you to join us for a feast of installation art!
