眼洞 Scenic Tunnel

Date: July, 21 - Aug 5, 2018
Location: I: project space

眼洞 Scenic Tunnel is a video installation, taking over the entire exhibition space, inviting the visitor to emerge into the urban gymnastic ritual. Further will visitors have the chance to put together their own gymnastic routine with the Teleport handbook.

Cities consist of much more than the built environment and the physical space they occupy: they are experienced by and through the body. Each day millions of people travel with the subway, the arteries of the city. We move through the tunnels and tubes, from home to work. This determines our thinking, our movements and interactions.

Leng Yue and Xiaoxiao’s long-term project 北京土行孙 Teleport Beijing is exploring the relationship of the body and Beijing through a gymnastic system based on the Beijing subway.

The exhibition 眼洞 Scenic Tunnel is the second part of the long-term project, that was initiated in the end of last year with the launch of the gymnastic system at ii space. Starting from a system translating the imaginaries of urban mapping into human forms, each single subway stop of Beijing became its own movement. As a second step Lengyue and Xiaoxiao invited urban travelers with different routines, to dance their daily route. The gymnastic routine was then layered with visual recordings of each participants daily life. The city is expanding in high speed and commuting has become an important part of urban life, while representing urban development, real estate speculation, disconnected capitalist social structures and its influence on the urban citizens. One citizen often changes its identity from one place to the next.

眼洞 Scenic Tunnel 是一个占据了整个展览空间的视频装置,让观众浸入到充满仪式感的都市体操体验中。观众更有机会借助现场的_土行孙_手册,创造出属于自己的动感体操。

一座城市不是只由人工建造的环境所构成,人的身体也是极其重要的一部分:作为感知的渠道,你我的身体使我们能够感受一座城。每天,上百万人乘坐着地铁穿梭在城市的血管中,我们在地洞和通道里前行,在工作和家之间来来往往。这种周而复始的行程影响着我们的思考,我们的举动,以及我们对外的沟通与交流。

冷月和枭笑的长期项目 北京土行孙 Teleport Beijing 以北京地铁为灵感创造了一套体操,用于探索人体与北京的关系。

此次展览 眼洞 Scenic Tunnel 是这个项目的第二部分,与去年年底在ii space展出的体操项目同时发起。冷月和枭笑通过系统性的想象将城市地图拟人化,把北京的每一个地铁站都制成了一个相应的体操动作。之后,他们邀请了几位通勤者们把自己每天的行程“跳”出来,并记录下了这些不同的体操动作,将之叠加在每位通勤者的日常生活视频上。在城市高速发展、扩展的同时,通勤已经成为都市生活的一个重要部分,代表着城市发展、土地投机、资本主义社会架构及其对城市居民生活的影响。每一位居民在不同的地方往往拥有不同的身份,扮演不同的角色。
