李明影像展《 <wbr>XX <wbr>》

 

李明1986年生于湖南,毕业于中国美术学院新媒体系,毕业后一直致力于影像与装置创作。此次展览的作品有《XX》、《不可自抑的情绪》、《犬语》、《被围困的小道》、《在别处》、《傍晚快乐》、《击打我》、《后花园》、《上坟》、《欧阳医生嗨半夜》、《你对我的爱是舌头伸进喉咙》等。我们希望通过艺术家的作品探讨在当代艺术语境中该如何定义私人化倾向的价值问题。

 

艺术家作品主要从三个方面表现其主题: 一是对自身的混乱和纠结不清的情绪表达;作品《不可自抑的情绪》是艺术家对自己童年时期强迫症的回忆,但是片子并不是在对回忆进行还原,后期的剪辑反而把兴趣点转移到线性时间轴的矛盾而又成立的逻辑上,通过重新拼接打乱的素材,把真实和幻想混淆,真实发生的事情犹如梦魇般呈现在我们面前。此类主题还表现在《犬语》、《击打我》、《你对我的爱是舌头伸进喉咙》等作品中。二是对现实生活中某时刻、某场景隐隐带来的个人体系中的“历史记忆”的剧场式表达;如作品《上坟》中,大炮等武器的响声与上坟场景中出现的行为隐性相连,将场景中正在发生的行为和场景中行为勾起的个人体系里的历史记忆拼合成一场演出,并用老电影的模式轻松调侃了宏大叙事的美学定势。另一件作品《被围困的小道》本身是一个行为的记录,但艺术家在画面中的出场方式,以及行为最后戏剧性的结尾都将一个平淡无奇的行为转换成一次似乎是刻意经营的表演,包括作品《后花园》表现了一群被弱智化的保安简单玩耍的过程,是一部不具任何意义,游离于现实之外的荒诞剧。三是围绕艺术家对身体与身体之间相互形成的气场的看法:主要体现在同性身体之间传达出的那种暧昧。如何才能使得大家的身体在一起的时候变得舒服自然。在作品《XX》中,我们可以看到两个互相对对方身体信任的男性在交换背心的场面,其中充满着暧昧与异样。艺术家关注的是除了单纯直觉的玩耍状态外还有以何种目光来捕捉才能使两个正常男性的友谊变得非正常化的方式。作品《傍晚快乐》、《在别处》都表现了艺术家对身体触碰的迷恋。其中《傍晚快乐》刻画了一群年轻男人光着身子,背上涂满了奶油,相互追逐,互相舔对方背后的奶油,以及其他一些身体上的可能性。整个过程是生猛、开心、刺激和自然的。忽略了美感和对现实的抽离,更像是一个平常的打闹,而艺术家更关心的是这种普通和寻常的事情背后应该有的不正常。

 

对于艺术家而言,影像从来不是直指现实,而现实中我们所观察的东西也不是真正意义上的真实,对于同一件事物,不同人都会有不同的视角,影像作品从诞生开始它就是一种由人臆造的视觉产品,艺术家对自己影像作品的影音的拼贴,篡改享有着上帝般的自由权利。艺术家肆意地在形象的世界中锻造自己的影子,荒诞而矛盾的作品会让很多人陷入逻辑的迷宫,但正是这些荒诞不羁的作品却传达着敏感个体的哀伤和疑惑。

 

《 XX 》 – Li Ming Video

Artist: Li Ming

2009.11.14 – 2009.12.27

Opening: 3pm, 14th Nov. 2009

Venue: Platform China Contemporary Art Institute Space B

Platform China Contemporary Art Institute will host emerging artist Li Ming’s solo show – “XX” in its B space.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the opening reception on November 14th, 2009.

 

Li Ming was born in Hunan province in 1986. After graduated from the China Academy of Fine Arts in the New Media Department in 2008, he has focused his works to videos and installations. There are 11 videos and video installations will be showed in this exhibition in a designed self-experienced scene. We hope that through those works from the artist to explore and discuss a newly raised issue among the younger generation of Chinese artists -- how do we define the value of private self-expression_r in the context of contemporary art.

 

Li Ming expresses his main topic from three aspects in his works. The first is related to his confused and disordered emotions and feelings. The work “Not Self-inhibiting Mood”, for example, is related to the artist’s memory of an obsessive disorder he suffered when a child. . However, the video is not reduced to the simple subject of memory; in the last editing in fact he transfers the points of interest to a linear timeline of contradictions and to the conceptualization of logic. Through the re-arrangement of incoherent material, mixing reality with fantasy, the artist presents real facts as it was in a dream. The same method is also applied in "Dogs’ Language", "Beat Me" and some other works.

 

Another aspect in his works is related to theatrical expression_rs performed in certain moments of real life. For example, in “Visiting Ancestral Graves (Shangfen)”the noise of weapons such as cannons connected implicitly with the behaviors during the visiting of the artist’s family to their ancestral grave. It’s not only a play that pieced up from the real scene and the historical memory of an individual system that caused by the real scene. But the usage of old movies’ mode attests the aesthetics form of grand narratives. Another work “Flooded Path” is a documentation of a performance. However, the artist’s appearance on the scene as well as the dramatic end turn a common action into a painstakingly performance. “Back Garden” shows a playing process of a group of retarded security men. Even if it doesn’t have any particular significance in itself, the all piece has turned reality into an absurd situation.

 

The third aspect of Li Ming’s works evolves around the artist’s opinion towards the atmosphere created in between bodies and bodies: it mostly reflects the ambiguous that caused among bodies from the same gender. How could you make people feel comfortable and natural when their bodies are together? In the work “XX”, we can see two men who trust each other's bodies are exchanging their vests but keeping their skin together all the time. It makes the video fills with ambiguous and weird. The artist not only pays attention to the pure development of the play, but also, tries to find out ways of using what way to change the normal friendship of two men into a not natural relationship. In both works Nightfall Happiness and “Elsewhere”, the artist expresses his fascination with physical contact. “Nightfall Happiness” shows a group of young half-naked men, whose backs are covered in cream, chasing each other, licking each other’s cream on the back, and some other possible ways of physical contact. The actions are vital, joyful and natural. Without focusing on the aesthetics and on the detachment from reality, it becomes a common way of having fun. The artist is more concerned about the fact that behind the ordinary and the usual, there is always something anomalous.

 

According to Li Ming, video shouldn’t directly represent reality. The things that we observe in reality are not actually real in the true sense; people have different perspectives in front of the same thing. Videos are actually visual products created by people. The artist works thus at the assemblage of his videos enjoying the same sort of freedom of a God: forging the shape of the world he wantonly shapes his own shadow. His absurd and conflictive works may let many people fall into a logistic maze. However, because of these incredible and uninhibited works, one can feel the sorrows and doubts of a sensitive individual.
