Strangers(1*): Daido Moriyama and Hiroshi Sugimoto   “Each instant covers the entire world.” Dogen: Shobogen “每個瞬間都包含了整個宇宙的無限。” ——道元禪師《正眼法藏》 It is not often that two major exhibitions of two artists of the same media, of the same nationality and approximate maturity occur in the same city at the same time with such contrasting outcomes.

Richard Mosse – The Enclave
理查德•莫斯 – 《孤域》

— 4th April-26th April The Vinyl Factory Space  理查德·莫斯近三年在刚果民主共和国的创作,最后集结成了去年威尼斯双年展代表爱尔兰国家馆参展的视频装置 –  《孤域》 The Enclave,艺术家被刚果东部连绵不断的战争状态所吸引,刚果酷而复杂的战争却又鲜为外人所知。艺术家想通过这部影片去探讨艺术和摄影这两个媒介,对于不可言喻的社会现实的传达能力。   莫斯前往刚果最深处,去拍摄一些不能被常人所记录到的生存状态。主题以平常的民族志式的角度,记录着生老病死和日常的生活与冲突。其中看似纪录片的风格,却不难看出镜头前已摆设好的物象和场景。电影本身拍摄于一挂在steadicam稳定器的16mm摄像机,片中诸多的推拉镜头,其稳定的移动提供给观者一个第一人称视角。 而这样的拍摄方式也使镜头本身成为了影片的中心,观者的视野随着镜头被带入装置和影像空间,我们正如同一个个不应在此出现的猎奇者。 而镜头另一端,被拍摄的刚果士兵,平民,孩童,也均以造型,跟随,凝视来回应镜头。   在Vinyl Factory Space的空间里,八块双面投影幕布多为对称分布。空间设计与影片剪辑往往相互作用,其化学效应也是多频装置表现力的关键。The Enclave在展映上,影像内容和节奏也似乎是呼应着屏幕的对称性。而取材于刚果基伍湖的音乐和音效,与电影本身共鸣相称,其11组音响的分布,似乎比八块屏幕本身更能调动观者的对空间的体验。。 视频的亮点,是贯穿全片的粉红色调。莫斯在片中使用的是原本军用的伪装探测红外线底片。在二战时期由美军支持研发,用于探测伪装成绿色外型的敌军。这一种胶片已于2009年停产,全球所剩无几。在莫斯的影片中,本应最为突出的来自于山脉,植被,迷彩服绿色,纷纷配底片反应成了粉红色。超现实的粉色将原本沉重的主题附上了一股奇异的色彩。而通常和绚丽挂钩的粉色,在电影里也变成了另外一层伪装。   艳丽的粉色是具有感染力的,它迫使观者去探询这颜色改变的原因,去追问除却颜色,电影中是否还有其他被改动的部分。莫斯清楚自己并非记者,而是艺术家的身份,于是传达这样一个题材,就不能用到传统的纪实摄影角度。而通过连接一个传统的创作媒介和一个当代的现实题材,The Enclave作为一组艺术影像,的确起到了迫使观者审视图像创作,传播,和被消费的一系列过程,去讨论影响本身的真实性和可信度。   作品的另一个逻辑,同样源自于红外线底片本身。探测伪装的底片,可以显露出原本隐藏的物象。但仅仅是用有显形功效的底片,来记录鲜为人知的战况,把这两者编织在一起,此间的联系似乎稍停于字面意义上,并没有真正挑战纪实摄影和视频艺术的传统。潜伏于刚果的‘真相’是什么?观者看到的是否比寻常的记录片有更多细节?若是没有了这一片粉色,更多的‘现实’是否就无法显露? Mosse的照片似乎更能说明这一点,除却令人惊叹的粉色,剩下的也不过是一个传统的题材和视角。此中牵涉到的又是莫斯不可回避的纪录片传统中,关于图像和伦理问题。当艺术家离开那片孤域,当观者离开展厅这片飞地,能询问什么,能改变什么,是双方都要思考的问题。


Part I One “cock head man” who is wearing armor- somewhat like
the Pleiades, one of the Twentyeight Mansions, only is short of royal crown which star monarch should have, while is added a blast of rustic taste from “grass stage troupe” – he arms akimbo, stands unexpectedly in the interchange between battlements and white marble


Erwin Blumenfeld (1897 – 1969) is regarded as one of the most influential photographers of

. What is the exact meaning of photography? Is it a “grab the moment” action, or a tool to record every phase of life, or a means of artistic creation, or a way of self-expression, or simply a collection of captured images? It is probably a question with various answers from a variety of people.
