The solo exhibition named ‘here sun and moon float day and night’ of Zheng Wenxin will begin on 28th,March ,2015 in Hunsand Space. Hunsand Space will invite Jiang Zhuyun(Ji Mu) to present the audio vision live in XP bar.

The name of the exhibition ‘here sun and moon float day and night’ originated from the poem in the [Deng Yue Yang Lou ]of Du Fu. With the aid of the writing of the poet, the physical space of the nature was stretch to the broad gas field. The word “float”not only steadied the“ sun or moon” and “day or night” in the critical state without the edge, but also contained it in the flowing circulated rhythm of life.

With the similar of that, the space of the art works of Zheng Wenxin is filled with invisible power. The power is always trying to break through the edge of the picture space. From this, life and substance, spirit and reality, nature and volition, these opposite relationship was firmly harmonized in the painting rhythm by the complied action in the creative behavior of the artist.

As regards to the artists, the behavior of painting is like yoga. The two behaviors stretch the meridian of the body and the space of the spirit. In the process of the stretch, the main part constantly gains the energy and power.

This exhibition is not a painting works exhibition in the conventional sense .Zheng Wenxin used the human body organs and the four rivers which she has lived with as the template of the frame shape to made ten special-shaped frames respectively. As to the artists, the shape of the organs and the rivers themselves contains some kind of energy. The form is not a system to express the meanings and emotions any longer. The gas field inside it accords with the logic of the painting itself better.

Zheng Wenxin who was born in the 1975, graduated with her Bachelor’degree from the Art department of Xiamen University and got her Master’s degree in Britain Kent institute of art and design. She began her teaching career in China Academy of Art.

As to the poem of ‘here sun and moon float day and night’, we can feel the infinite extensive space. Besides that, Hunsand Space will invite Jiang Zhuyun(Ji Mu) to present the audio vision live. Although the vision, sound and poem have the respective professionalism on the language structure, it is a kind of intentional exist from the aesthetic to the audiences. This kind of exist which established in the language structure and surpass the structure finally can bring on great spirit freedom. On the basic of that, we can seemly talk about anything.

Jiang Zhuyun was born in 1984, lives and works in Hangzhou, China. Jiang’s works takes on multiple forms such as installation, paint, sound art, field recording and Audio Visual live pieces. As curator and excutor, he was in charge of many projects in Imagokinetic Lab of JNBY Art Center. Now he teaches programing and sound basic tech theory in SIMA, China Academy of Art.

Hunsand Spacec, found in 2014, is located in No. 211 Caochangdi Art Area. Hunsand Space keeps vigilant watch over the normal exhibitions of “Cube”. Hunsand Space, starting from syntax and semantic structures of contemporary art languages and extending to wider fields, hopes to motivate people to find the ignored parts of the present culture and take the value of contemporary art ideas to you and me through on-going exhibitions and projects.

 

拾萬空间将在2015年3月28日带来艺术家郑文昕的个展[乾坤日夜浮]。拾萬空间还将邀请蒋竹韵(积木)来呈现“乾坤日夜浮”的声音空间。

展览名字“乾坤日夜浮”取自杜甫《登岳阳楼》中的诗句——洞庭湖坼吴楚、浮日夜,波浪掀天,浩茫无际,但借诗人之笔,自然的实体空间便被拉伸到广阔的气场领域中,一个“浮”字,既将乾坤、日夜稳固到没有边缘存在的临界状态,也将之含纳在流动循环的生命节奏中。

与之相仿,郑文昕绘画作品中的空间饱含着无形的力量,这种力量一直在试图突破画面空间的边缘。由此,生命与物质、精神与现实、自然与意志,这些相互对立的关系便被艺术家创作行为中的“顺应”动作,稳定地协调到绘画的节奏中去。对于艺术家而言,绘画这一动作彷如瑜伽,这两种行为都同时对身体的经脉和精神的空间进行拉伸,在拉伸的过程中,主体在不断地获得能量和力量。

本次展览并不是常规意义上的绘画作品展。郑文昕以人体脏器和其生活过的四条江河的水域为画框形状的模版,分别制作了10个异形框。在艺术家看来,脏器和江河水域本身的形状就孕育着某种能量,形状不再是一个表意和抒情系统,它内部蕴含的气场更契合绘画本身的逻辑。

1975年出生的郑文昕,本科毕业于厦门大学美术系,硕士就读于英国肯特艺术与设计学院,2003年开始执教于中国美术学院。

对于“乾坤日夜浮”这句诗,我们可以有无限延展的空间。此外,拾萬空间还将邀请蒋竹韵(积木)来呈现“乾坤日夜浮”的声音空间。视觉、声音和诗歌虽然在语言结构上都有各自的专业性,但从美学上对观众来说是一种意向性的存在,这种立足于语言结构最后又超越语言的存在,可以带来极大的精神自由,在这个基础之上我们似乎可以谈论任何事情。

蒋竹韵,1984生于杭州,现生活工作于杭州。他的创作和研究方向涉足多种形态,包括装置、绘画、行为、观念、声音艺术、田野录音以及 AudioVisual 现场等。他曾参与并负责杭州江南布衣艺术中心想象力学实验室的多次项目策划和执行,现在中国美术学院从事编程和声音基础理论教学。

拾萬空间成立于2014年,位于草场地艺术区211号院。拾萬空间对常规意义的方盒子展览保持警惕,从当代艺术语言中的语法和语意结构出发并延展到更广泛的领域;希望通过持续的展览和项目,激发出当下文化中被忽视的部分,将当代艺术思想的价值生发到你我的身边。
