A Day in the Outer Ring 环外游

exhibition by Sponge Gourd Collective

Date: Aug, 11 - Sep 2, 2018
Location: ii Space

A Day in the Outer Ring 《环外游》 is an exhibition by Sponge Gourd Collective 丝瓜集团 as a part of an extended investigation into the human-scale impacts of the Chinese high-speed rail (HSR) development in the Jing-Jin-Ji mega region.

Nothing Ever Happens Here《这里很无聊》 and Lunar Palpitations《月食心慌 》 are video works comprising footage taken from a research trip in March 2018 that explores the areas surrounding new and proposed HSR stations. Nothing Ever Happens Here《这里很无聊》 creates collages in physical space by bringing green screens to various sites in Hebei with current or proposed HSR stations, and inviting local residents and objects to place themselves in the speculative space of the green screen. Lunar Palpitations《月食心慌 》 loosely depicts a dizzying pilgrimage to a sacred site of speed and rejuvenation. Sense of time distorts, and bodies hurtle forward into abysmal space. Unfilial Garden《不孝花园》 is a wall painting that reproduces background elements from educational murals seen in Xitianchi Village, Handan, Hebei. Removed from their propagandistic context, the mute landscapes unfold and invite viewers to focus on their formal and affective dimensions. These works highlight the vertigo,fantasy, and anxiety inherent in the HSR’s promises of national empowerment through speed.

I: project space这次带来丝瓜集团的展览 A Day in the Outer Ring 《环外游》。展览作为一个延伸调研的一部分,调查京津冀高铁的发展对人与社会的影响。

_Nothing Ever Happens Here《这里很无聊》_和 _Lunar Palpitations《月食心慌 》_两部视频作品由2018年三月一次调研旅行中的素材组成,探索新建的以及计划中的高铁站的周边地区。_Nothing Ever Happens Here《这里很无聊》_把绿屏带到河北多个新建/计划中的高铁站附近,并把当地的人和物置于绿屏的视像空间中,从而创造出三维空间内的拼贴画。_Lunar Palpitations《月食心慌 》_松散地描述了一次向往速度和复兴的、令人眼花缭乱的朝圣之旅,扭曲的时间感和呼啸而过冲向深渊的身体等让人眩晕。_Unfilial Garden《不孝花园》_是一幅壁画,复制了位于河北邯郸西填池村的教育性质壁画中的许多元素。种种无声的景观脱离了其原有的政治宣传语境,邀请观众单纯地关注其形式和情感方面。这些作品把高铁视为国家权力以速度为形式的承诺,突出了其不可避免的隐性的眩晕,幻想和焦虑。
