With the evolution of modernism, close combat has been replaced by technological competition, financial warfare, and even cyber warfare.

“Wushu” is called “Kung Fu” in the West. Since the 1960s, with the popularity of Kung Fu movies in Europe and America, it has become a popular entertainment and fitness activity in the West. It loses its original purpose of attack and selfdefense, and becomes a popular entertainment for health preservation and fitness.

If martial arts represents a past production relationship, just like traditional art, it emphasizes genre, technique, training, and closed teaching. Disco is a product of “modernity”, which is characterized by low-tech, improvisation, openness, sociality, and non-genre. Almost at the same time that “Kung Fu fever” was on the rise, disco was born and became popular all over the world. Since the 1980s, it has swept the mainland with the popularity of Hong Kong and Taiwan culture.

The purpose of disco can be said to be to fight boredom, seek excitement and happiness, expand social interaction, etc. This proves that the greatest enemy of mankind at the moment is no longer others, but the emptiness of one’s heart. The popularity of martial arts is declining, but the influence of disco has spread to street corners, making it a localized mass entertainment project; in the end, they exist in parallel in the same era and in the same country, and they all reflect the helplessness of the changing times.

ARCH 采访 | 谢燚

他的作品长期以来从“劳动”这个常用的词汇出发,不断向现实世界里以“语言”为基础的权利追问。“我只希望我认为重要的东西能被大家知道,那就是”具体的劳动“在现实世界中是如何”做功“的。”

ARCH 采访 | 朱湘闽

朱湘闽的作品在愉悦的状态中,凸显了轻盈、弥散的线条与形态,层叠的不同色块和材料之间强调了艺术家自身的意识与感知。画面中直观的力量感,是艺术家对“矛盾和悖论在身体里形成完整的统一“的思考,形象间释放的情绪在思想的过滤与分解后,营造了更有流动性的感官体验。

ARCH REVIEW | 眼前

当我们把“看见”这一行为比作打开一个空房间的房门,看着这件物体的视线和它存留下的痕迹像是打开门后产生的余音,我们无法准确的追寻余音回荡的轨迹。不断地“看见”,新的东西累积产生同时,不可避免的产生了遗忘与消亡。一张照片保存了一个时间的瞬间,通过回忆,某些时刻得以持续存活,不相关瞬间的外观孤立了出来成为“科学家的信息、摄影师的引用”
