Accessing The Memory 无法兑现

Group Exhibition by Chinese and Norwegian artists

Date :March 5th - April 5th, 2017
Location: I: project space

How truthful are archived memories? Archived memories are collections of both tangible and intangible information or informative objects kept from the past. They are collected, kept and passed on by people who have been through, witnessed, related or heard about it. For long, archive serves as a way to keep both collective and personal memories. The political intent of an archive is inherent to the same flaws as humans due to cultural differences and bias. Just like Edward Said suggested in Invention, Memory and Place: “Collective memory is not an inert and passive thing, but a field of activity in which past events are selected, reconstructed, maintained, modified, and endowed with political meaning.”

With the advent of personal computing, the Internet and online database are more often used as tools for cataloging public and private memories but it also raised many questions. Firstly, with the archived memories becoming easier to access and even editable online, we need to question its authenticity and authority. The fast upgrading archiving technics has created many memories we can barely get access to anymore, for example, videotapes and soft discs. As Jean Baudrillard described in his theory, in the Internet age, the real memory is gradually disappeared in the stimulated images, the archived memories have become an editable spectacle of the society.

The exhibition will invite Norwegian and Chinese artists. Through the exhibition, we are going to discuss how memories are kept, archived, interpreted and re-used through the artists' practices.

档案用来记录历史,储存记忆由来已久,它的真实有多少可以兑现? 过去的记忆,以文字、图画、视频以及声音等形式储存成为档案,作为集体记忆的一种承载方式,由于整理者立场的差异与文化偏见,档案具有与整理者相同的局限性。正如萨义德所说:“集体记忆并不是惰性的和被动的,而是一个行动的场域,在这个场域中,过去的事件被筛选、重构、保留、修改、并被赋予了政治意义。”

网络存储的记忆方便了人们查阅和浏览但也更加模糊了档案的真实性,任何人都可以制作自己的维基百科,浏览者也可在线编辑。经过一道道加工,我们已无法通过现存的资料接触到原本的真实,也可能“真实”已经变得不再重要。鲍德里亚认为在网络时代,现实的真实已逐渐消失在虚幻的屏幕里,存储的记忆已成为可被大众修饰的公共景观。

整个展览的构想从艺术家的个体创作观念出发,以记忆在当下各种储存媒介不断更迭中的尴尬状态,讨论记忆在还原过程中出现的丢失、篡改以及替换。更为严重的是,我们储存于当下各种技术媒介的大量记忆,难以跟上储存媒介本身的更新速率,在将来可能会变成一种无法读取的回忆。

展览将运用灯光、影像、声音装置来讨论记忆从构建、复制到保存、流传,再到消解的一系列状态,并讨论其在当下的存在形式。

此次展览得到挪威驻华大使馆的支持,得以深入北欧的挪威、冰岛走访艺术家工作室。不同于经常出现在大众视野内的欧洲其他国家,挪威和冰岛有着独特的、近似原始的自然气息,这种气息也根植在北欧艺术家的创作中。我们试图通过此次展览,将中国艺术家的作品与其并置,激起独特的碰撞与交流。
