“请你为我拍张照”系列

观念摄影 数码 彩色

这组自拍系列是我带有行为表演的一组观念摄影作品,从2014年到2016年已拍摄70多种社会身份。我在创作这组作品时,是通过和拍摄对象交换角色,让平日作为镜头前的他们站到镜头后,而我通过扮演成为镜头中的他们。在真实场景中通过摆拍和扮演来完成。拍摄原型兼“摄影师们”主要是作者生活中遇到的拥有各种社会角色的90后。当往日的拍摄者成为新的被摄者,快门按下时,身份的互换与模糊,或许会产生一种新的可能。

“You take a picture for me” series

conceptual photograph, digital, color.

This series of selfie is a group of conceptual photographs with my acting, from 2014 to 2016.  I have been photographing more than 70 kinds of social identity. In the process of creating this group of photos, I exchanged roles with the subjects,let them stand in front of the camera, and I played them through the lens. In a word, in the real scene through the layout an ingredient plays to complete this works. Shooting prototype and “photographers ”are post-90s who mainly encountered in the life of the author has a variety of social roles. When a photographer in the usual sense becomes a new target and press the shutter, identity swapping and blurring, I think there may be a new possibility.

  • 你为什么做艺术?

因为我喜欢做梦,胡闹与折腾,而做艺术刚好能让我每天和自己玩得很开心。

  • 你觉得怎样才是一个成功艺术家?

我觉得无标准的自由创作状态比有标准的成功更酷。每餐能吃5碗米饭,即使到100岁也能有力气把脑子里好玩的点子变成作品。

  • 你对现在的“当代艺术圈”有话要说吗

少一些“虚无”主义,少一些无病呻吟,多一些反应社会现实、时代气息的创作,多一些不同艺术门类的跨界、融合与可能性。去浮躁,希望可以慢慢形成一个良好的艺术环境。

  • 是什么让你决定参加venize双年展2017特别项目?

“Trans-Bordering-Art”,发起人和参与的艺术家在共同完成一个艺术作品,这本身就是一场史无前例的艺术行为,我们正尝试着一起跨越“In and Out”,“职业与非职业”、“官方与非官方”的界限,突破一系列界限后,“人人都可以是艺术家”变成了现实,可见这个过程是令人期待的。

  • 请根据个人经验推测一下,怎样才能被威尼斯双年展艺术大展选中(官方单元而非平行展)?

作品应该在遗传自己原有的文化基因上去结合西方的艺术语言进行创作,不要一味地迎合西方的艺术标准,作品的独特性很重要。

 
  • Why do you do art?

Because I like to dream, nonsense and toss. Art just let me play with myself every day very happy.

  • How to become a successful artist?

I think the free state of creation and the no criterion is better than a standardized success.

  • Do you have some words to say to the Art circle?

Less nihilism, less fuss, more social reality and the flavor of the times on the artistic practice, more integration and possibility in a few different categories of art. To eliminate the impetuous ,I hope to be able to form a good environment for the arts.

  • What made you decide to attend this special programme of Venize Biennale 2017?

"Trans-Bordering-Art", the initiator and the participating artists are working together to complete a work of Art, this is an unprecedented act of Art. We are trying to cross the boundaries of "In and Out", "career and non career", "official and unofficial". After a series of boundaries, "everyone can be an artist" becomes a reality, we are very much looking forward to this process.

  • How to be selected by the official program of Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia)?

First of all, the work should inherit the cultural gene of individual national concept. Secondly, combine western artistic language and individual national concept to create a new stuff. Do not blindly cater to the western art standards. It is important for everyone to find the uniqueness view to create.
