When the traditional art media and expressions can not serve as the cultural symbols of creative thinking, a new art path which related closely to the development of ages is emerging.

In the context of the “same”, how to maintain the distance between the original, critical, experimental and creative parts of the creation and the public “Hong” becomes an extremely crucial problem and makes the “same” and “different” more valuable and meaningful to be discussed.

This summer, the first exhibition of WOOTON Gallery will open. The exhibition invited Cai Caibei, Chi Qun, Fang Lijun, Fu Bin, Guo Donglai, Wang Lijun, Wu Mengshi and Zhu Peihong to participate as artists. They use different ways to convey contradictions and confusions that related to the time’s property

I am very honor to be the curator of the first exhibition of WOOTON, and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to participate in the contemporary development of my hometown Changsha. The young founder of WOOTON not only has a unique appreciation for art but also has a transcendence sense of foresight and responsibility in the development of contemporary art in Changsha, even China. The development of modern art not only needs “soil”, but the realistic “protection mechanism”. I expect WOOTON to become a new place for Chinese contemporary art and a rock of young artists who dares to challenge.

ARCH INTERVIEW | Guo Yujian

Since then, I have tried to let daydream-like imagination seep into the picture, and those earlier, more symbolic images have also been naturally diluted. Perhaps, it is precisely because of the temperament that seems to be infiltrated by the picture and some image contents that are contrary to reality that cause the association like a dream.

ARCH REVIEW | Guo Yujian :Dangerous Complicitiy

When looking at Guo Yujian’s works, what have been depicted is always in a state of flow, and the secret words that are related to each other become images that avoid us and approach us. The work that takes shape on the canvas in our sight is yet to come, in transition, about to embrace change, and it will not push us away until the feeling is fulfil.

ARCH REVIEW | Making Complicity

When the painting is really close to us, the first thing that appears to our eyes is this Le cimetière marin[1] written by Valéry in 1922. The curators Hu Yihang and Zhang Tingzhi, together with artist Guo Yujian, divided the exhibition “Dangerous Complicity” in the gallery into three chapters with words and symbols: imagination, a plateau, and a theatre.

ARCH REVIEW | 在倦意来临时服药

恍惚是我们长时间被某种思维或事物压制后常常落入的状态。在这个状态中,时间如流体般被我们任意搬运、搅动,又或是尽兴逐流。而林舒的作品常常通过对空间的加工让我们对影像中的实体逐渐疏远,以至于被送入一个被剥去嘈杂的心理状态,意识取代了被记忆包裹的身体,从而任意涌动。

ARCH REVIEW | 制造共犯

当画作真切地逼近我们双眼,首先出现的是这首瓦雷里1922年所写的《海滨墓园》。机构策展人胡奕航、张汀芷与艺术家郭宇剑一起,将这次拱形画廊名为《危险同谋》的展览,用文字或符号分成了几大篇章:臆想、一座高原、剧场。许是有意为之,又或是无心之举,开篇选取的这段文字,饱含着诗人瓦雷里对家乡赛特港的深沉眷念。

ARCH 采访 | 薛若哲

“绘画没有办法不诚恳,这是一种无法伪装的媒介。我对绘画的诚恳和机械的、拾得的图像产生的化学反应感兴趣,尤其是当网络图像和铜板线腐蚀这种必须要经过转化才能成型的绘制方式相遇,就形成了有意思的关系。”
