昆明菜市场活动艺术家作品介绍

筱琳

我将在菜市场涂画人像,当人们在等待自己的肖像时我会和他们交谈并收集每个人的故事,然后我将故事纸片贴在肖像画背后并用铁丝将它们悬挂起来,肖像面对观众,故事藏在后面,之后的参与者需要选择一个肖像并尝试编造他们的故事,我将收集这些想象出来的故事并也贴在肖像画的背后,这样在同样的肖像画、真实集合的基础上长出了不同的虚构。

刘瑜

该项目是在菜市场中将大学教材和思想类,哲学类书籍以统一的价格随时间的推移从正到负价格的方式销售而完成的一件作品。旨在对当下以市场经济为中心的主导文化影响下,高等教育,文化与市场经济商品经济之间的问题的探讨(涉及了对教育产业化和文化市场化的批判和反思)。同时对书籍作为思想文化的载体和其同时作为一件商品,以它在市场经济行为中的身份呈现问题进行探讨。)

Duskin Drum 忧伤的企鹅

“一只忧伤的企鹅,不一定都和气候有关,有的企鹅就是为人类感到伤心”。

我将坐在桌前在小纸片上用简单的墨和水彩画企鹅。我尽可能的将它们画的很忧伤。如果有观众靠近,我就给他们一只或多只企鹅,然后我们一起讨论忧伤、企鹅、冰、鸭子、蛋、气候变暖和其他同忧伤企鹅有关的话题。我们会不时一起拍照。当我的作品被忧伤企鹅的小画充斥满时,我将把它们以条状粘起来并贴在附近某处。我一天能画几百个企鹅,“忧伤的企鹅”是一个非常简单的行为作品,试图以非暴力的形式来探讨忧伤、企鹅、小可爱、和被称为气候变化的超级对象。

罗菲

让我们吹起这张纸
我给每个人一张普通的A4白纸,盖在他们的脸上,让他们吹起来,不断地吹,并用录像记录下来。我想看到在一张普通的纸上如何找到游戏的乐趣,在不断吹纸的 过程中他们的性格特征和身体语言如何流露出来。同时,在这种反复的行动中,吹开盖在脸上的纸,也成为一种象征,正如西西弗斯(Sisyphus)永无止尽 推巨石从山底下到山顶一样。只是这个行为并非基于惩罚,而是基于游戏与渴望。这件录像作品的部分场景是在菜市场里拍摄的。

常雄

生命细胞·登名造册

我将事先绘制好的登记布(深色背景上分布着若干浅色浮斑)固定在菜市场门口,然后向进出菜市场的顾客提出问题,如所购食物、最近做的梦或某段如梦的人生经历等,再将之描绘在登记布上的浮斑内, 最终让浮斑形成孕育生命的“细胞”,并使整块登记布笼罩上星系般的神秘氛围。

我试图通过这一方式说明:在我们生存空间中的所有事物(这些生活中的细节),不仅是个体生命的“细胞”的和合物(营养),同时还是地球、人类或其他生命结构的重要组成部分。

元兮

我试图接近不同的菜场摊主并问他们5个系列问题,这些问题由浅入深,最后将非常严肃和个人化。我将付钱给他们回答问题。当我问完问题我会给每个摊主 机会来问我任何他们想要问的问题,我会尽可能的诚实和完全的回答,当然我也要求他们为我回答的问题付钱。这个项目在于探索隐私如何被创建,金钱交易将使这 一过程简单化还是复杂化。它寻求创建一个瞬间,我和参与者互相搭建了解又同时质疑“我为什么要相信对方?我们的互动关系用多少钱可以衡量,用何种形式来衡 量?隐私的价值是多少?

汤米和琳达

我们计划把我们工作室的小凳子带到菜市场进行一次工作展示,我们将使用在菜市场发现的或是购买到的物品作为创作基础材料,我们会把甜瓜做成雕塑或者把胡萝卜做成笛子,观众也可以向我们提供创作材料。我们的作品是对空间、物体和这之中的人的直接回应。

雷燕

我们的作品需要我的学生和市场小贩的参与,学生们收集他们在菜市场找到的水果、蔬菜和其他材料,然后他们需要用厨具和艺术材将这些物体转换为动物、脸,或者其他自然物体。最后我们以售卖水果蔬菜一样的方式来展示来展示我们的作品并让感兴趣的来问问题。我也想让我的学生来画市场小贩,用水果和蔬菜来描述这些人的性格。我希望每个参与到我项目中的人都能更深的理解我们同那些我们日常消费品的关系,不仅是吃它们,同时也能注意到它们的形状和符号,我认为这对那些以这些物品为生的市场小贩来说更加的重要。

马睿奇

我的作品涉及测试不同的体系和不同个体对破坏的反应。我将在菜市场和超市用厕所手纸建一面墙来阻断通路,在这期间我将和任何同我交谈的人互动,但我仍会不停的建墙,如果观众愿意的话他们可以和我一起建墙,如果他们想毁掉墙,我将顺从他们。

和丽斌
2012年•芳香的记忆

在今天城市飞速发展的进程下,城市的丰富性、城市之间的差异性正在越来越多地丧失,唯有菜市场还保留着市井独有的气味,在菜市场收集这些特别的气味并封存,建立一个时间、空间和记忆的档案库,8月,这些家乡的气味将随我远行至异国他乡,与在他乡收集的气味一起展出。

Joe Sneed 和 Orion Martin

作为策展人我们花了很多时间在鼓励参与人,发放信息传单,艺术倍数,以一些简单物件来促进思考,安排平衡艺术家的项目和整个活动。我们会在周五早上于永和兴市场,周五下午于篆新市场,欢迎大家前来吃水果和同我们讨论昆明菜市场项目。

昆明菜市场艺术项目

caishichang昆明菜市场艺术项目

//项目简介//

“昆明菜市场”是一项为期两周,定位于菜市场的综合性艺术活动,它将发生 在有着7百万人口的中国西南城市-昆明。不同的中 国艺术家或艺术家团体将利用视觉、行为和其他媒体形式同公众产生互 动。参与“昆明菜市场”项目的艺术家被设定在特别的场合完成艺术,这 种场合是无数代中国人进行货物交换的中心,在昆明保存得非常良好,但 也正在被现代商业的发展所侵蚀。艺术家需要沿用菜市场的风俗惯例像卖菜人一样把作品展 示在桌子、地面、或任何形式的摊位上。这些作品将被保存几个小时到几天。

“昆明菜市场”项目得到了位于昆明的国际画廊、文化中心 – TCG诺地卡的支持,并由中国和国际策展人合作组织。 策展人将提供指导和资源,在概念连贯性上引导艺术家。艺术家不出售作品。但却被鼓励将观众和特定场域囊括入创作,并同 好奇的观看者们讨论作品想法。两周期间将通过艺术作品、论坛、在线媒体等方式,全面公开的激发对艺术角色、公众角色、市场角色以及传统社区等方面的讨论。

概念和目标

“昆明菜市场”项目致力突破艺术发生场合以及从事 人群的边界。这个事件的观众是和 当代艺术完全没有关系的普通中国公众。这些人去菜市场只是为了购买食物和杂货而不是欣赏艺术。所以对艺术家的挑战就是他们 必须调整作品使之直接和公众及和作品安置环境有联系,因为如果没有关 联就没有交流。这打破了艺术呈现的习惯— 即谁在看艺术和在哪里艺术被欣赏—这直接决定了艺术可以表达什么及艺 术在当代社会的意义。

通过在菜市场完成作品,将打破艺术家对在这个地方所能进行的交换的传 统思维认识习惯。观众大概都会问一个明显的问题,“艺术家 为什么在这里做艺术? ”这个问题提供和开启了艺术 家和观看者的交流。这个作品的目的是什 么? 菜市场的社 区角色是什么? 变化中的经济和文化 规范如何影响了菜市场,对艺术又有什么影响? 通过对环境和处境的深入体会,艺术家能够提供一种新鲜的、具有批评性的并且开放给观众以直接回应的观点。而观看者得以融入当代艺 术,得以挑战自己对于艺术是什么,艺术能做什么的看法。“昆明菜市场”项目的目标是策划这个特 别的情景,用另类的方法达到价值交换。

关于策展人

这个事件由四个策展人(罗菲/中国、Joe Sneed/美国、Orion Martin/美国、朱筱琳/中国)共同组织。我们作为策展人的角色是双重的。首先我们负责日常后勤,包括筹资和宣传。其次,也是重要的,我们将会鼓励艺术家之间,艺术家与社区之间的信息和思想交流交换。交流是整个事件的核心,这为艺术作品提供了概念上的连贯性,也为参与者和社区提供价值。我们也将建立相关网页促进艺术家同公众的交流。

我们所寻求的

由于这个项目是在菜市场进行的,它成为一个同不熟悉艺术的观众群互动的上好机会。我们希望寻求擅长于探索非常规空间和新方式进行作品互动的艺术家。我们寻求喜欢同观众互动而不被白盒子方式和商业艺术市场模式所限制的 艺术家。本项目的作品不仅会是具体的物体,它带出的交流和价值交换将是更加重要的。我们期望得到的作品可以不是具体物体,而是由作品引起的交流和互动。

艺术家承诺

这个项目将在昆明菜市场实施。我们希望所有参与的艺术家 都在8月初的两周内抵达昆明参加艺术家团体活动。活动开始前我们要求艺术家参与同策展人和其他艺术家的在线讨论以确保每位艺术家的作品创作得到充分准备和能够达到紧密联合。除活动事 件本身我们也要求艺术家在事件发生前参与在线讨论及在昆明同 其他艺术家见面。事件中我们将会有一个面向公众的论坛和一次同云南艺术学院学生交流的活动。我们认为社区互动是本次事件的中心。

//后勤//

时间表

我们希望在8月初的两周内促成这次事件。但如有必要的话也有可能会根据艺术 家的时间来进行延长。请标注你可以进驻昆明并参与项目的时间。当然如果你的时间越自由对我们来说是最方便的。

经费情况

我们已筹集到租赁市场铺面及艺术材料花费的大部分资金,目前正在申请资金覆盖附加费用,如旅费、住宿等。项目总经费目前在待定状况中,参与的艺术家需要有灵活应变的能力。请填写以下信息 让我们知道你的需要,是否愿意参与此次事件。

Kunming Markets

Project Description

“Kunming Markets” is a two week event that consists of multiple art projects located in traditional markets throughout Kunming, a city of seven million in Southwest China. Each project is created by a different Chinese artist or team of artists who use visual, performance, or other media to interact with their audience in public spaces. For “Kunming Markets” the artists will present their work in a setting that has served as a center for the exchange of goods for countless generations in China, and which has been preserved particularly well in Kunming, though its presence is diminishing due the advance of modern commerce. The artists will engage the traditions and conventions of this unique setting by installing art on tables, on the ground, in booths, or in any other manner of presentation common to market vendors. Each project may last a few hours to several days.

“Kunming Markets” is sponsored by TCG Nordica, an international gallery and cultural center based in Kunming, and is jointly organized by Chinese and international curators. The curators will provide the participating artists with guidelines and resources to ensure the conceptual coherence of the event. The artists will not sell their work. They will also be encouraged to involve the audience and the site in the creation of their work and to discuss the ideas and intention behind the art with curious viewers. The two week event will stimulate dialogue around the role of art, the public, the market, and traditions through the art projects, as well as discussion forums and online media that will be accessible to the entire community.

Concepts and Goals

“Kunming Markets” aims to push the boundaries of where art takes place and who it engages. The audience of the event is a broad range of the Chinese public that is largely unexposed to contemporary art. These people go to traditional markets with the expectation of buying food and other goods, not of viewing art. The challenge for the artist is to reorient their work so that it directly relates to the audience and the setting in which it is installed, because if it does not relate, it does not communicate. This breaking of habits in artistic presentation– who views the art and where it is viewed– is critical to expanding what art can say and mean in contemporary society.

By installing art in traditional markets, the artist will be crossing long-established conventions of what happens in these places of exchange.
An obvious question that any viewer can ask is, “Why are the artists working here?” This opens up both the viewer and the artist to dialogue around the context of their meeting. What is the intention of this art? What is the role of traditional markets in the community? How have changing economic and cultural norms affected markets, and how have they affected art? By working out of context, the artists can offer a viewpoint that is fresh and critical and open to immediate response by the viewers. The viewers are in position to participate in contemporary art and challenge their assumptions as to what art can and should be. The goal of “Kunming Markets” is to host these unusual situations and to suggest alternative forms for exchanging value.

About the Organizers
This event is organized by four curators, two American and two Chinese. Our role as curators is twofold. First, we are responsible for the day to day logistics of the event, including fundraising and publicity. Second and more importantly, we are here to encourage information and idea sharing both among the artists and between the artists and the community. This dialogue is the core of the event; it will provide conceptual coherence to the artwork as well as value to the participants and the community. We will create a website to facilitate artistic collaboration and communication with the public.

Who Are We Looking For
Because this project will take place in traditional markets, it is an opportunity to engage with audiences who have had little exposure to art. We are looking for artists who explore alternative spaces and new forms of interaction through their work. The art in the event will not be objects, but rather the communication and an exchange of values that arise from it.

Artist Commitments
This event will take place in the traditional markets of Kunming. We ask that all participating artists travel to Kunming during the first two weeks of August to take part in the group events. Before the event, we ask that artists participate in online discussions with the curators and the other artists to ensure that their work is well-prepared and cohesive. There may also be discussion forums that will be open to the public and a meeting with students from Yunnan Arts University during the event. We believe that this interaction with the community is central to the event.

Calendar
We aim to have the event take place in the first two weeks of August. However, we may extend the duration of the event if it works better for the participating artists’ schedules. Please mark all of the days that you can be in Kunming to participate in the event. The more flexible you can be with the timeline, the better.

Status of the Budget
We currently have funds for the cost of the market spaces and art materials. We are also applying for grants to cover additional costs, such as travel and modest accommodations. Given that the budget’s size is undetermined, the participating artists will need to be flexible. Please fill out the information below to give us a sense of your needs if you were to participate in this event.

Your Estimated Needs
Housing: Are you willing to sleep in lodging provided by a volunteer?
Travel: What is the minimum cost for you to travel to Kunming?
Other living expenses: Please estimate additional living expenses (food, local transportation, etc)

Materials
Based on previous projects and the nature of this project, what do you estimate a material budget would be? Do you have other needs not mentioned above?
