60 Minute Cities- Kunming | 60分钟,我的城市- 昆明

参与Bivouac Recording发起的“60分钟我的城市”实地录音项目,现在发行出来。
城市收音是一件让人非常着迷的事情,许多熟悉的地方原来如此陌生。

Bivouac Recording的推介:

New Release 60 Minute Cites- Kunming by artist and curator Luo Fei. Luo Fei captures an intimate portrait of Kunming documenting the people and locations that surround him but also that can deeply characterize the city. From the noisescapes in ‘Green Lake Park’ to the static-like waves of gentle Kunming rain hitting an umbrella outside a restaurant in ‘Tan Jun Alley’, all the documents are pleasantly candid and the descriptions detailed and thoughtful. I had been to Kunming many years ago for work but never really saw the city. I will have to head back out there again sometime. Welcome to Kunming!

“These recordings are mainly recorded in March and April of Kunming city, where birds can be heard everywhere, and occasionally there is a little rain / Kunming is called the eternal spring city, in the southwest of China, capital of Yunnan province / I have moved and lived here for nearly 20 years / I like the weather and culture here. Like living in any city, we go to school, go to work, go home, take the bus and subway, go to the edge of the city from time to time, enjoy nature / I like to wander around the city, look for places with texture and flavor of life, especially when it rains / These recordings recorded some moments and sounds of my daily life in this city / I usually hold recorder in my hand and walk through a place, or just stand, daze and listen //

新专辑 60分钟 – 昆明由艺术家和策展人罗菲录制。 罗菲捕捉到了一幅昆明的亲密肖像,记录了他周围的人和地点,同时也刻画出了这座城市的特征。 从“翠湖公园”的喧嚣景观到静谧的昆明的雨,“天君殿巷”餐厅外面落在伞上的雨滴声,所有录音听起来都让人愉快,描述细致周到。 我很多年前去过昆明工作但从未真正见过这座城市。 有机会我会再次回到那里。 欢迎来到昆明!

这些录音主要集中在昆明的三月四月,随处可以听见鸟叫声,偶尔有一些小雨 / 我移居到这座位于中国西南的被称为春城的城市近20年,我喜欢这里的天气和人文 / 和在任何城市生活一样,上学、上班、回家、搭乘公交和地铁,时不时去到城市边缘的地方,享受大自然 / 我喜欢在城市里闲逛,寻找有肌理感和生活气息的地方,特别是下雨的时候 / 这些录音记录了我个人日常生活在这座城市里遭遇的一些时刻,一些声音 / 我通常手握录音笔,穿过一个地方,或者只是站着,发呆,聆听 / 所有录音为双声道,建议在安静环境使用耳机收听 //”

寻隐者不遇

和丽斌 “寻隐者不遇” TCG诺地卡 2019.1.30

和丽斌——“寻隐者不遇”

和丽斌把十年前为“就地造境”(inscape on the spot)展览创作的一幅画中的一个小人物打磨掉,耗时两小时……在枯燥的打磨声中,考验着观者的耐心。那个攀爬了十年的人,也终于尘埃落定……

其实很多人都不曾注意到画面山脚下那个长年跋涉的小人物。他似乎成了某种象征…… 正如一切的存在,都将归于尘土……

这是西坝路创库艺术社区TCG诺地卡的最后一场表演。
和丽斌十年前参加我策划的“就地造境”,他在诺地卡墙体上画了一幅巨大的风景油画。那是一个讨论个人内心风景与美学的展览。

画面上一座苍茫劲拔的山峰,一个人在其中缓步潜行……
此刻,他正在把那个人“打磨”掉,留下无人的风景……

画面中的人影被艺术家擦去,留下无人的风景

《不像画》前言:

文: 罗菲

绘画可能是今天艺术领域最具亲和力也最令人头疼的事情之一,它总是能提供有关自身的故事,那些故事又为后来的画家们设定了诸多无法绕开的路标。它时而预示着某种终结,时而预示着某种回归,更多时候,它只是让人感到尚可继续下去的古老的游戏。对很多画家来说,画画只是属于自己的事情,那种眼界与手艺的持续成长让人着迷,仅此而已。

只是今天的绘画已不再是艺术家们的拓荒之地,今天的艺术家面对的不只是绘画,而是整个艺术世界。人们从绘画的方法、观看和绘画这个行动本身去寻找突破口,去尝试“重新”画“一张画”的可能,去尝试画“画画”这件事情。这不只是让“画画”变得更加复杂,也让“看画”变得更加复杂,它们都变得不再直观。绘画的任务不再是再现或者表现,而是提供“画画”和“看画”的某种可能。这也正是我们今天这个展览的出发点。

2015年从瑞典皇家美院毕业的艺术家弗雷德里克今年9月来到昆明TCG诺地卡驻留,整整三个月他完全专注于绘画,在此之前,他主要从事表演艺术、声音艺术等现场艺术形式。弗雷德里克的绘画观念与gif格式的图像生成有关,两张看上去相似的图像并置在一起,由观众自己去联想它们之间的关联,类似电影蒙太奇的方法。但他只是让两张绘画在空间上并置,而不是时间上关联。在画面的最表层,是一种表现主义倾向的风格,尽管他极力否认自己的绘画与表现主义风格有关,因为那不是他要追求的,他关注的是画面和画面之间潜在的建构关系。

和丽斌近些年的绘画实践融合了行为艺术的方式——盲画,在户外或室内,在深夜里,他在大尺幅的画布上画他对一个场景的印象和感受。在他的盲画实践中,绘画这一拥有悠久历史的艺术实践被逼入临界状态:可知与不可知之间,可见与不可见之间,可画与不可画之间。唯一能确定并不断被确定的,就是在广袤自然环境中的艺术家自身的存在和自我的增长,这种确认在漫长黑暗中通过对话和较量来完成。这让绘画成为摄影一样,在暗中显影,在日光之下观看。

和丽斌的绘画与弗雷德里克的绘画在风格层面十分相似,他们都用表现主义手法去画风景,但又都提供了一种非常规的“看画”经验。和丽斌刻意让自己看不见的时候画自己的看见,画面的最终显现依赖时间。弗雷德里克通过不同画面空间上的并置,让画面和看画产生不确定性和异样感。他们都用最直观的方式去画,但又都制造出多层次的观看逻辑。

这次展览还有四十余位参加和丽斌短期表现性绘画课程的云艺的同学们,他们的画作结合了行动绘画的练习方法,同样探讨的是画面以外的有关绘画如何可能的问题。弗雷德里克、和丽斌还有诸位同学们,为我们呈现这样一个有关“绘画背后的绘画”的交流展,我姑且把它命名为“不像画”。

Outrageous, like a painting.

Outrageous, like a painting.
text: Luo Fei
editor in English: Sanne Raabjerg

Painting is probably one of the most intimate and vexing things in the art world today. It always provides stories about itself. These stories set a lot of road signs for later painters. Sometimes, it heralds some sort of end, and sometimes it heralds a return. More frequently, it is just an ancient game that makes people feel like they can continue on their paths. For many painters, painting is just a matter of their own interest, and the continuing growth of their vision and craftsmanship is fascinating, and nothing more.

But painting today is no longer the wild land of artists. Today’s artists are not only facing painting itself, but also the entire art world. People go from looking for breakthroughs, in the methods of painting, in the way of seeing images and in the performative part of painting, to painting the possibility of “painting a painting” and to painting the matter of “painting”. This does not only make “painting” more complicated, but it also makes “seeing paintings” more complicated, since they are no longer as intuitive. The task of painting is no longer just to represent or express something, but to provide different possibilities in “painting” and “seeing”. Correspondingly, this is the starting point of our exhibition today.

Fredrik Fermelin, an artist who graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Sweden in 2015, came to TCG Nordica in September as an artist in residence. Here, he spent three full months focusing on painting. Before that, he mainly engaged in performance, installation, video and digital media, etc. Fermelin’s concept of painting is related to image generation in gif format. Two seemingly similar images are juxtaposed, and the audience themselves associate their correlation, similar to the method of making film montage. However, he just makes two paintings juxtaposed in space, not in time. Although he strongly denies that his paintings are related to the expressionist style, on the surface level they might seem to comprise expressionist tendencies, but that is not what he wants to pursue. He is more concerned with the potential constructional relationship between the pictures.

He Libin’s painting practice in recent years combines the way of performance art with blind painting. In the middle of the night, he paints his impressions and feelings on a large-scale canvas, both indoors and outdoors. In his practice of blind painting, painting, an art form with a long history, is forced into a critical state: Between visible and invisible, between known and unknown, between painting and non-painting. The only thing that can be identified and continually confirmed is the artist’s own existence and self-growth in the vast natural environment. This confirmation is accomplished through inner dialogue and contests in the long-lasting darkness. This turns the painting process into photography development: Developing it in the dark, watching it in the daylight.

He Libin’s and Fermelin’s paintings are very similar in style. They both use expressionism to paint landscapes, and they both provide an unconventional “seeing” experience. He Libin deliberately paints what he has seen when he cannot see; therefore, only time will show the final appearance of the painting. Fermelin’s juxtaposition in space of different paintings, creates uncertainty and dissimilarity in the paintings themselves and in the seeing of the paintings. They both paint in the most intuitive way, but at the same time they create paintings that can be seen on multiple levels.

For this exhibition, more than forty students from Yunnan Arts University participated in He Libin’s short-term expressive painting course. They combine their paintings with the practice methods of action painting, in order to discuss how paintings can be. Fredrik Fermelin, He Libin and the students present us with such a communicative exhibition about “Paintings Behind Paintings”. Here, I have just named it “Outrageous, like a painting”.

反思絮语

各种微观的去中心的艺术在地实验
正在各地发生
这是文化上的生态多样性的开始
它最终可能不会成为令人瞩目的浪潮
而是自成小溪滋养各个角落
—— 罗菲

回答诸如:“当代艺术”是否已经终结?中国“当代艺术”的精神特质与审美特征是什么?“当代艺术”是否已远离大众?下一个艺术浪潮(或艺术运动)什么时候到来?……等问题。
