OBJECTIVE目標 《越界︳過渡》關鏈字

 

以视觉、理论、结构、空间和灵活的定义和重新定义,定位和重新定位都市、农村、 物理、心理、地缘政治、基础设施、社会/文化、虚拟,媒介导向、...等边界概念,將在思想的结构和展览系统中形塑出來... 在「深港大都会」一个居住条件快速变幻的年代,边界不是一个持续的、物理或地区概念,也不是一个固定、借来的空间/时间点用作基础设施/宣传/教学活动的提供;

 

相反边界是:

 

• 一个感应心灵、方便想像的心理国度,

 

• 个人能量和存在於空间中的有 (Being) 秩序和无 (Non-Being) 秩序的一项聚焦,

• 一种跨越多媒体与活动的心理状态,

 

• 软实力的表現,協助定义及重新定义相関城而的建構硬件、及其合法性和权威性,

 

• 一项策略来有機地移动中央与边缘的疆硬界限……

 

• 越界是一个跨地区的,跨基础设施的項月,地理及心理上联系香港与深圳双城双年 展, • 越界過渡了活动本質的框架,逾越不同項目、媒体架构、基础设施、公共艺术、多 媒体和各种和市民溝通的非官方平台, • 越界专注和彰顯了建筑与城市发展的视觉效果 (Visual Impact),一个连接著擴散和 滲透在我们物質环境中、不同层次和维度的生活素質(Quality),

 

• 越界也可以是针对土地规划和建築實用要求等富争议问题的創意和文化回应。

 

展覽平台| 「越界」的展覽平台:

 

围绕著非主流概念的旦生,在「現代之後」,它重新體現建筑与城市化的视觉价值;批判當下美學形態跟建筑空間和双年展的過分分离;在我们社会文化、地缘政治不断急遽变化的狀况下,分析日漸處於“都市化边缘”的高新视觉文化怎樣通個創意的展覽結構,及其對造城環境另类的觀察、认知和实驗,以其正面的積極力量衝击城市趺蕩失序的發展「常態」。 建筑装置、空間品物、比例模型、城市环境声音、反映都市生活的表演…將在每一佈展的公共或半公共空間形塑跨媒体的平台;为如此極速转型的珠三角狀況进行富革命性、非主流素质的视觉建筑的短暂呈现;並推動非流于程式化的文化教育和詮释。 「越界」整體也是一个把玩边緣和中央、富概念的跨艺术-建筑方案;担當都市振兴、社区平權增值,和深圳同步成長的兩年、非一次性項目;它徘迴於稳定与改革,发展与妥协,现实与远见之中;在稍纵即逝的當下再激活全球化和本土化的理性對話;讓公眾想想什么样的城市条件和都市系统他们曾未想創的,也讓他們在這些空間下重新定位/再定位怎样的城市生活才可讓這珠三角旗艦城市在同城化的激烈競爭中持续發展… 通過自身體驗

 

The exhibition project aims at presenting the notion of a (city) boundary (i.e. “Hong Kong”) on a cultural x/change platform, embracing the medium of architecture, live performance, painting, photo/sound/videography, mixed-media or installation, defining and redefining the very notion of contemporary art, in the era of border-crossing.

 

CURATORIAL CONCEPTS策展関鏈辭︳概念

PLATFORM平台

 

RETHINKING “BORDER” IN THE VISUAL FORM OF “ARCHIVE”

(I) RETHINKING THE NOTION OF “BORDER” (i.e. HONGKONG/ SHENZHEN-CHINA) TRANSGRESSING/ CROSSING THE LOCAL AND GLOBAL CONTEXT AND CONFINEMENT CREATING THE NEW FORM OF AWARED ART EMBRACING BODY ACTION, MEDIA, IDEA, VISION…

 

- to perceive a cosmopolitan urban city “Hongkong-Shenzhen (HK-SZ) or CHINA” as a development, something being created and something being missed…

 

something can co-generating/ co-habiting in something new and interesting….

 

- to rethink Hong Kong, Shenzhen or other urban district/ city’s position as a geopolitical/ representative symbol of industrialized capitalism- an inevitable global phenomenon?

 

- to initiate or actualize the project as a steering engine for positive dynamism and engaging movement crossing the border and recreating a new form of local learning, culture, tourism, leisure and traveling, and other socio-cultural events in the region of HK or Other City.

 

- to create a “(alternative) vision” for the border cities/ communities being fortified by art projects with deep, international impact, and follow-up cultural exchanges, etc.

 

- to forge a dialogue crossing the boundary of art, history, social reflection, infrastructure and to create pluralism/diversity/dynamicism as cultural symbol and reinvigoration of cultural heritage such as CDAV or JCCAC and its geo-eco-political significances by showing its transformation from present to future…

 

- to revisit a small number of artworks (the past) and realign them with other works or projects (the present) here from various time periods, crossing the boundary of time.

 

(II) VISUAL, THOUGHT-FORM AS ALTERNATIVE ARCHIVE Archive will take the a variety of form crossing and embracing body, video/ photography, film, painting and mixed-media project. Crisis of Modernism (functional/ rational) / Inadequateness of Postmodernism (human-oriented/ irrational)

 

 create an Alternative/ Otherness/ Parallel of TWO is the very notion of contemporary art and this festival - to create an alternative archive to review, to plan, to vitalize, to re-use,

 

 build for the development of our cities and create the “second” history of the cities by showing “the past” could actually embrace the up-to-date and upcoming... - to create the alternative NEW CITY ARCHIVE

 

 reactivate the border-crossing areas and art-forms, etc. The archive takes the form of body, video, mixed-media, reflecting a self-reflexive process of each artist

 

 to overview a past-present-future status quo

 

 to explore more cultural tensions involved by the process of city synchronization, urbanization, and over development in the areas of environment. - to create an archive as an aesthetic, sensory, and intellectual response

 

 to the constant revolutionizing of life in HK, SZ, China and Asia… (i.e. economic/ social/ cultural/ political/ religious etc..) - to create an archive as memory as practice

 

 to perceive the immaterial social and economic structures into abstract quality (gender, class, religion, and nationality) and even more corporeal realities (Bourdieu, 1977)

RATIONALE︳

(A) Crisis of Modernism (functional/ rational) / In-adequateness of Postmodernism (human-oriented/ irrational)

 

 Creating an Alternative/ Otherness/ Parallel of TWO is the very notion of contemporary art and this festival Synonym and Analogy with Modernism “Number is matter”

 

 mass production

 

 large quantity “Efficiency is matter”

 

 fast and fast

 

 speed “Function is matter”

 

 formalism and without context

 

 dehumanized “Reproduction is matter”

 

 originality and aura

 

 repetitive/ mechanistic

 

 high-techno

 

(B) Creating the alternative NEW CITY ARCHIVE and

 

 to reactivate the border-crossing thinking and art-forms, etc. The archive takes the form of body, video, mixed-media, reflecting a self-reflexive process of each artist

 

 to overview a past-present-future status quo

 

 to explore more cultural tensions involved by the process of city synchronization, urbanization, and over development in the areas of environment. Creating an archive as an aesthetic, sensory, and intellectual response

 

 to the constant revolutionizing of life in HK, SZ, China, Asia and other global cities… (i.e. archive alternative economic/ social/ cultural/ political/ religious ideas, etc..) Creating an archive as a new social formation/ critics of the industrial modernity

 

 to accept and be ready to change “ways of living and models of action” Creating an archive as a radiation to border districts, artists, and publics

 

 to form intuitions of memories

 

 to aware contemporary art as a specific form of social knowledge. i.e city development and social class etc.. Creating an archive as memory as practice

 

 to perceive the immaterial social and economic structures into abstract quality (gender, class, religion, and nationality) and even more corporeal realities (Bourdieu, 1977)

 

 

(C) Social Ants/ social Plant

 

 a study model of city development after industrial modernity “multiplication of needs” (Karl Marx)

 

 modern city as a consumer-driven society

 

 Capitalism depends on and fosters the drive towards accumulation by creating imaginary promises of happiness and freedom through consumptions Industrial plant, installation, and facility

 

 becoming the fossils of modern dinosaurs i.e. monumental and impressive

 

 lifeless/ no economic value i.e. no longer productive and created employment. (as like as Becher, Bernd & Hilla)

 

 to the extreme “commodity fetishism” to the industry (Cain, Ben, 2012) Plants (Metaphyta or Plantae) are one of the two groups into which all living things have been traditionally divided;

 

the other is animals (also called Metazoa).. (Linnaeus, 1707–1778) Ants are social beings as human and they work for a close-system and “self-contained/ sufficient and highly organized matriarched colonies”. (Shen Kuai, 2012)

 

Each ant is born with assigned work (associated with the term citizenship, citizen rights, social status, and society etc.) which contributes to the welfare of the entire colony Plants are living organisms as human.

 

Plants provide most of the world oxygen and are the basis of the earth ecology. Ants and Plants are signified as biological interaction as human society i.e. symbiosis (defined as "the living together of unlike organisms. Heinrich Anton de Bary, 1879), parasitism, competition, etc….

 

(D) Synonym and Analogy with interaction from ecosystem Neutralism describes the relationship between two species which interact but do not affect each other. Amensalism is a relationship in which a product of one organism has a negative effect on another organism Competition is a mutually detrimental interaction between individuals, populations or species antagonistic interactions one species benefits at the expense of another. Commensalism benefits one organism and the other organism is neither benefited nor harmed. Mutualism is an interaction between two or more species, where species derive a mutual benefit, The term symbiosis (living together) can be used to describe various degrees of close relationship between organisms of different species.
