ARK Gallery将很高兴与C14画廊合作推出邬树楠的个展《呼吸》,呈现艺术家最新系列作品。姜纬先生担任总策展人,相应画册已推出,由靳宏伟先生出品,中国摄影出版社出版。展览为C14画廊与CIPA(北京)画廊合办的交换巡回展览,旨在促进京沪两地及上海画廊间的艺术交流与合作。开幕酒会于2016年7月16日(周六)下午3:00-6:00在中山南路1029号1号楼东3楼举办,策展人姜纬和艺术家邬树楠莅临。

从《吠盲》到如今的《呼吸》,邬树楠总是能将特定而有限的素材,提炼为交织着转喻和隐喻的个人化图像,越过了生活的逻辑,陷在混沌深渊般的精神逻辑里。这些照片不是命名的游戏,而是认知的更替。

鲜活的花木在如今很容易看到,邬树楠却视若无睹,反而在其《呼吸》系列中呈现了没有生命的塑料花和消失生命的枯花。我相信对于他来说,鲜活的记忆、知觉仍在,也许还很充溢,但正因为知觉和记忆的存在,才会有这些照片。

这些塑料花和枯花在邬树楠的虚构语境中,招展,显赫,生气昂然。谁也不知道这个世界到底是现实的还是奇异的,换句话说就是:谁也不知道究竟这个世界是自然演绎的过程还是某种形式的幻梦——一种我们与他人或许共同参与或许并未共享的梦境。


ARK Gallery is glad to collaborate with C14 Gallery to present Wu Shunan's solo exhibition Respiration. This exhibition is a part of exchange program with CIPA Beijing, which is curated by Mr. Jiang Wei.

The corresponding albums for the exhibitions have been published by China Photographic Publishing House. C14 Gallery’s collaboration with CIPA Gallery marks a new chapter of artistic exchange between Beijing and Shanghai. The opening reception will be held from 3pm to 6pm on July 16 (Saturday) on the 3rd floor, East Block 1, 1029 South Zhongshan Road in the presence of Wu Shunan .

From AloneWhisper to today’s Respiration, Wu Shunan can always abstract his personal image, where metonymy and metaphor are interwined, from specific and limited materials, surpassing life’s logic, yet stuck in such spiritual logic as a chaotic abyss. These photos are not a game of naming, but the alternation of cognition.

Fresh flowers and trees can easily be seen nowadays, but Wu Shunan shuts his eyes to them; instead, he has presented lifeless plastic flowers and withered flowers in his Respiration series. I believe, for him, fresh memories and senses are still there, or they might even be abundant, but just for the presence of senses and memories, there come these photos.

In Wu Shunan’s fictional context, these plastic flowers and withered flowers are flaunting, proud and vigorous. Nobody knows whether the world is real or weird; in other words, nobody knows whether the world is a course of natural evolutionor a certain kind of dream—a dream in which we may play a part together with others, or a dream that is never shared.
