The fiction of art was very romantic before the revolution, as light as a feather, when Picabiya said: “You serious people, it smells worse than cow dung. As for Dada, it smells nothing, it is Nothingness, nothingness, nothingness.

It is like your hope: nothingness. It is like your heaven: nothingness. It is like your politician: nothingness. It is like your artist: Nothingness…” When social revolutions are constantly in progress, from Dada to punk, from Fluxus to Situationist International, cultural groups and organizations of various genres are all permeated with dissatisfaction with reality. , The party’s fighting spirit swept through like a storm. Looking back at all of this now, it is like “a feather falling in the sky.”

The Exhibition “The Storm Valley —— How to prevent wind from destroying a fictional community?” Through three chapters, a fictitious non-existent loose community is created, the “wind” is metaphorized as a sudden crisis, and the difficulties that every community group is facing today are discussed. We should clearly realize that the cultural construction behind the community lies largely in fictional elements. What makes us think that the here and now are the best? It is the purpose of our discussion today.

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.


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.
