On the bright side, there is color.

exhibition by Michael Bodenmann and Jiajia Zhang

Date: Jan 17---Feb 21, 2015
Location: I:project space

For this exhibition the two artists Michael Bodenmann and Jiajia Zhang showed works that reflect on artistic working conditions and the perception of images.

The objects shown in this exhibition by Michael Bodenmann are the result of his research-based stay in the residency program of I: project space. He used the three months stay to reflect on his photographic archive.

The settings in the exhibition bring existing and sometimes subconscious preconceptions of the exotic to the surface. With his small sculptures, that seem to be abstracted photo studios, Michael Bodenmann wants to find criteria used to select and interpret images that you are confronted with every day.

Continuing this critical approach towards the use of images, Jiajia Zhang recycled a questionnaire by Paul Thek put together in the 70s for his art students and pairing them with her photographs. Placing these questions of Thek in public space Jiajia Zhang offers a way to rethink and reevaluate views on art and life in general. The intervention will be photographed and translated into an installation within the exhibition setting.

日期:2015年1月17日-2月21日
地点: I:project space

来自瑞士的艺术家Michael Bodenmann和Zhang Jiajia将会在1月17日下午4点开始他们关于反映艺术工作条件和图像感知的展览。

在本次展出的Michael Bodenmann的作品是他在I:project space的艺术家驻留计划过程中探索和研究的成果。他将他在北京的三个月时间内的所感所想全部映射在了他的影像资料当中。
这次的展览中,来自艺术家Michael Bodenmann的作品将现有的人对包含异国情调的世界客观存在和人对周围已有的潜意识中的刻板印象”浮出水面”,通过他的小小的,看起来像是抽象派的图片一样的塑像,Michael Bodenmann 想为你在每天日常生活中遇到的场景和图像找到一个可以进行选择和说明的标准。

继续对于这种使用图片的批评,JiaJia Zhang把Paul Thek在70年代给他的学生发放的问卷重新整合起来,将照片和问卷进行配对展示,把问卷中的问题放在这对作品下面。JiaJia Zhang将Thek的这些问题重新放到公众的视野中,为观众提供了一个重新思考和评估艺术与生活的方法。这种艺术形式的介入已经以图像和译文的方法嵌入了这次展览当中。
