bai ta si CD album & filter #29《白塔寺》CD专辑 & 滤镜29号

ii space exhibition by Huang Cheng and Ketty Zhang

Date: Sep 26 - Oct 7, 2018
Location: ii Space

bai ta si CD album and filter #29 are two projects simultaneously presented at ii space as a part of 2018 Beijing Design Week's Neighbourhood Warming Initiatives.

HUANG Cheng is an interdisciplinary artist based in Guangzhou, and the founder of long-term experimental sound art project, "Baishizhou Album." During his residency at ii space in August, he researched on natural and artificial sounds in the historical and lively hutongs. His work are presented in the form of CD albums during BJDW.

“The albums make use of natural sounds such as those of the temple bells, crickets, birds and bird whistles, as well as conversations in the hutongs and the narration of the dreams of a female character. Space intertwines with memory, action meets repose, aggression overlaps with Zen... creating a theatre of sounds at the same time realistic yet elusive. ”
-- Huang Cheng

Selfies are of utmost importance for many when travelling. As one of Beijing's most iconic neighbourhoods, Baitasi attracts attention from local and international visitors, yet at the same time challenges one to find a perfect spot for a #baitasiselfie.

filter #29 will take care of this need during BJDW. The ephemeral installation will enable visitors to see themselves with the Pagoda while facing away from it, inviting conversations about materials and textures, built environments and space occupiers, as well as the integration of the traditional and the contemporary.

日期: 2018年9月26日 - 10月7日
地点: ii Space

作为2018“白塔寺暖城计划”的一部分,我们于北京设计周期间在ii space同时展出了两个项目:《白塔寺》CD专辑滤镜29号

关于《白塔寺》CD专辑/About bai ta si CD album
跨媒介艺术家黄成来自广州,是长期声音艺术项目“白石洲唱片”的创始人。上个月在ii space驻留期间,他对老胡同进行考察,从当地的自然/人造声音和日常生活中取材。他的项目成果在设计周期间展出,形式为实验性声音专辑和在地性写作。

“专辑中运用‘自然的安静的声音’,例如钟声,蛐蛐声,鸟叫声,鸽子携有鸽哨飞翔的声音,与胡同中的对话还有她高考在北京学画的梦境,时空与记忆相互交织,动与静相互交错,争与禅意相互交叠,构建出似现实而又非现实的声音剧场。”
—— 黄成

关于滤镜29号 /About filter #29

自拍留念已经成为人们旅行时不可或缺的活动。白塔寺街区作为北京最有标志性的地域之一,经常吸引国内外游客的来访,但人在周围胡同中走动时,却很难找到一个与白塔合影的完美角度。

_滤镜29号_将为此提供解决方法,让大家来一个新颖的#设计周自拍。ii space艺术空间的门窗将摇身变为镜面装置,不仅为物质空间添加了科技的意味,同时也使建筑与人、传统与现代、以及不同材质之间产生对话。
