双色视觉生物的四色梦,

展览项目

姚清妹在这个展览中构建了一个充满歧义的带有隐喻意味的景观装置,通过三件相关的影像作品以一种隐喻的,微妙的方式指出了她对当代政治图景尴尬困境的疑虑:双色视觉者能否想象四色视觉者的世界?

 

影像作品“二分旗帜”是姚清妹对法国68年5月风暴这一历史事件和民主竞选规则举重若轻的指涉。艺术家将游行中具有反抗性、象征意义的投掷地砖(lancement du pavé)的行为置换到一场对抗竞技游戏的语境下,通过红蓝两队的投掷比赛回溯了“行动绘画-Action Painting ”中“画布即竞技场”的概念,从而创造了一面« 画布-旗帜» 。这面旗帜继而成为第二个影像“变色龙”的舞台魔术秀的布景。魔术秀以一种讽喻的姿态将演员、政客、魔术师三者并置。“政客魔术师” 抛开政治话语和情境,对诸多政治演说做出纯粹的肢体模仿。环绕着这场空洞的“无言”的演说,“词汇交响乐”奏响了政治场域的词汇:这个影像装置由六幅类似竞选海报的视频肖像构成。12位“演员-候选人”各自癔症式地复述一个政治场域中的词汇。,从声音,节奏和情绪的角度逐渐消耗并挖空了词的含义。

 

姚清妹的作品不断地玩味于游戏和介入,语言和肢体,现实和想象之间:究竟是景观还是政治演说?是嬉戏的身体还是行动的身体?在深浅色调的红蓝之间,两极交替。也许某日,这样的两极交替能够逃脱出颜色的光谱,去往多色视觉的他处?

The tetrachromatic dream of the dichromats

2018

Exhibition

YAO Qingmei immerses the visitors toa spectacular, parodic and ambiguous installation.

The exhibition consists ina triptych of metaphorical videos revealing the doubts of the artist and her skeptical view of current political patterns : can dichromates imagine a tetrachromatic world?

 

The video « Dichotomic Flag » showsa game of « pavement-painting » leading to a « canvas-flag ». As a nod to the Action Painting movement, «the canvas is an arena », a common territory absorbingsymbolic, subversive and sporting gestures. This painting becomes the set of the « Chameleon » show where the magician-politician imitates empty, purely gestural political speeches. This wordless speech is accompanied by a "Lexical Symphony" composed of twelve video portraits similar to the electoral advertisement. The lexical repetition, obsessive, takes the actors' bodies as far as exhaustion and empties the meaning of the words.

 

The art of Yao Qingmei constantly switches between the game and the engagement, the spectacle and the political discourse, the playing body and the acting body, the speech and the gesture, the individual and the collective, the real and the imaginary.

 

The nuanced bipolarity alternates red and blue. Will she succeed one day inescapingfrom this spectrum of colors to tetrachromaticnew horizons?
