变色龙

2018

​影像9'40''

变色龙这一影像作品展示了一个以政治人物的竞选辩论节目为原型的舞台魔术秀。二分旗帜成为这一魔术剧场的布景。政客魔术师在表演变脸魔术的同时相继模仿十位政治人物演说辩论时的肢体动作和神态表情。这一魔术秀以一种隐喻的手段将演员、政客、魔术师三者身份并置,穿插展示了变脸,丝巾变色,空手出钞等经典魔术,在政治话语模糊乃至缺失的情境下强调对政治人物“演说”的进行的一种纯粹的肢体模仿。两位魔术师助手镜像运动,被她们一分为二的绿幕道具又成为舞台布景两边分居“左右”的影像文献参照区。然而这些影像文献仅截取了诸位参考政治人物的演说影像的身体细节视频,这些模糊不清的碎片化的影像文献细节同步呼应政客魔术师的肢体模仿秀,似乎要向观众提示并拼凑一张流动的不完整的人物肖像, 成为当下政治场域中所谓“精神之父”的参考。

The “flag-painting” of the previous project becomes the decoration for the show “Chameleon” where the magician-politician mimics hollow, purely gestural political speeches. This choreographic debate is punctuated sometimes by a few tricks of clumsy magic. The twin assistants move symmetrically. They tear a “green background”, which is then used to inlay fragments of archives and reality in this fictional work. The chameleon constantly alters the mask and posture to the rhythm of images.
