行为作品“来回”

作品源自小珂与子涵2012年合作的社会剧场行为作品“大力伤害”系列之五号“碾压”。小珂与子涵携带100件纯白T恤衫,在上海14个路口完成了所有T恤衫的马路碾压行为。每件T恤留下了汽车碾压的痕迹,并有了各自被碾压的详细信息。

“大力伤害”是小珂和周子涵合作实施的户外社会剧场表演作品,旨在城市公共环境中有目的有针对性的实施其身体观念表演,以此连接艺术家的个人生活和所处的城市环境,并将表演艺术推上街头,尽最大可能地与公众接触,并产生互动,“大力伤害”将艺术家的艺术观念还原于生活当中,完成观念本身“从生活中来,消逝在生活中”的生命过程。

此次作品“来回”,100件被碾压的白色T恤衫将被再次展示。同时实施碾压行为的纪录片也会在现场再次播放。小珂与子涵运用单纯的身体动作,通过来来回回的重复,试图在现场建立起与100件碾压T恤衫的能量对话。让碾压回到现在时,回到空间站,回到人们的记忆和思考中。

“To & Fro”
The performing artwork is based on Social theater work “Darling Hurt V Crush”, which is created by Xiao Ke and Zi Han ‘s collaboration in 2012. They took 100 white T shirts to the public street in Shanghai, and did the crushing action in 14 special traffic crossing. Each T shirt has been crushed by cars on road, on which there is the trace by car’s wheel. The artists gave each T shirt a special name with the crushing information such as the time and the location.

Darling Hurt is a series of outdoor social theatre works collaborated between two independent artists Xiao Ke and Zhou Zihan. Having the purpose to realize the conceptual body performance in the urban public environment, it no less connects the personal life of the artists with the city where they live than pushing the performing art onto the street which engenders the opportunity to have contacts as much as possible with the public as well the interaction. By restoring the artists’ ideas back into life, Darling Hurt is to fulfill the life process of the idea itself that what comes from life vanishes into life.

“To and Fro”the new piece will show the 100 crushed T shits again but in a new performance way. Also the documentary to explain how artists made the crushed T shirts will be shown again during the new performance. This time Xiao Ke and Zi Han they choose very simple movement but repeat again and again in 2 hours. What the artists try is to build up an energy dialogue with these T shirts in the live performance. They hope to pull “Crush” to present tense, to Space Station, and to people’s memory and minds.
