马蒂：十年来我们做了106个展览，每年8至10个项目，包括在国内的和国外的，我参加过至少12回国际性的独立空间博览会，去年在都灵的一个博览会上拿了一个奖(the Premio Intrauma Art Prize)，前几周我在雅典和巴塞尔参加博览会。我这个空间主要是做展览，如果搞其他派对活动，我的邻居会抗议的，哈哈。然后我们这里会存留一小部分艺术家的作品，虽然不是很多收入，但可以保持一部分在空间里也挺好。
诺茨：我不认为无聊，因为我们这里也诞生了很多杰出的艺术家。尽管我们身处欧洲的中心地带，但我们还是有一种山谷思维（Mountain Valley thinking），不少杰出的艺术家甚至来自大山里，比如罗曼·西格纳(Roman Signer)，一生可能没有见过太多世面，看上去像书呆子，但这也很好。瑞士也经历过几次装置和雕塑的艺术运动，有的作品甚至具有很强的挑衅性，比如克里斯托夫•布切尔(Christoph Büchel)的装置，他经常做一些探索极端心理的探索。所以我不会说我们的艺术是无聊的(boring)，或许你可以说有点闷(bored)。当然，和世界上其他国家相比，我们这里确实没有太多大问题，这里没有贫民区。

Not Yet Complete — One Volume Artist Book Project 2017
Today art has begun, but is not yet complete. I simply want to reveal the images of sensation(intuition), be it just a sliver, before its systemization.
“Not yet complete” causes one to remain suspicious, remain uncertain, and remain unfamiliar.
“Not yet complete” leads one to doubt utopia, nihilism, and the validity of universalism.
I do not have an optimistic view about the future of our planet, therefore I am expectant about the “not yet complete” now.
We may forget or push things aside, but there is always something “already here and not yet complete”. When this completion comes to past it will exceed all imagination.
Mankind has begun but is not yet complete.
— Luo Fei (curator)
▎About “Not Yet Complete”
“One Volume Artist Book Project 2017” is planned by Luo Fei. The theme is “not yet complete”.
A (set of) artwork of the participator for sharing is demanded.
An artwork of “not yet complete” is uncompleted in reference to its state. It can be a sliver of an ongoing project, a discontinuous or even an unsuccessful artwork. It may be interrupted temporary or eternal. It can be a section, a part, a sliver, a fictitious sake, an unformed embryo, a protracted issue, a hunted issue, or a forgotten issue. Anyway, it is already here but not yet complete …
The progress, reason, and mode of “not yet complete” are decided by the participator. Mediums are unlimited. (e.g., painting, photograph, video, literature, music, layout, draft, minutes, account book, homework, etc.)
Everyone is welcomed to this year’s “one Volume”. The identity, age, nationality, census registration, and address are unlimited.
The “One Volume Artist Book 2017” includes publishing “Not Yet Complete —One Volume Artist Book of 2017” and holding an entity exhibition in Tai Project, Kunming. We have received 110 artworks in total from artists and people from different industries. They come from not only Yunnan province, but also other provinces of China such as Beijing, Henan, Guangxi, Fujian, Sichuan and other countries like Norway, America, Japan, and Bengal. Some of them are housewives, children, young artists as well as eximious proficient in art circles and each of them has at least one “artwork” which is not yet complete. As Li Ji, an artist, says, “Most things in our lives can never be completed, and not necessary …” Luo Fei, the curator, has an explanation on the idea of this exhibition, “’Not yet complete’ leads one to doubt utopia, nihilism, and the validity of universalism … In the long and not-yet-complete journey of life, everyone has infinite possibilities. And of course, everyone can be depressed because of ‘not yet complete’… However, as mankind, we have begun but are not complete. Every moment of present may be remodeled.”
