Small Vision Playback 小视觉播放

exhibition and live performance by Ted Whitaker

The Ghost Market is an ambiguous forum for trade of discarded items from past generations, mixed with a sense of unknown and the guise of legalities. Once a week, under late-night darkness, the ghost market gathers outside Beijing’s east fourth ring at the Daliushu Market Grounds.

For one night only, I: project space resident artist Ted Whitaker presented 小视觉播放 Small Vision Playback , a series of small works that integrate ideas of obsolescence and information access in a moment of flux. Drawing from research in recycling cultures and media archaeology during his residency in Beijing, this project acts as both an exhibition and live performance. Integrating the Ghost Market as an exhibition platform, this work intends to expand on the chaos and unpredictable encounters.

鬼市是一个充满神秘感的二手交易市场,摊位上充斥着富有历史、等待转手的各样物品。形形色色的人们每周一次聚集在北京冬四环外的大柳树集市广场,在夜色渐深的时候开始自己的寻宝之旅。

此次展览中,I: project space驻地艺术家Ted Whitaker 成为了鬼市摊主中的一员,在他的摊位上展示一系列名叫 小视觉播放 Small Vision Playback 的小型艺术作品。这些作品结合了他对快速发展的时代中“报废”和信息处理等概念的思考。此次展览根据他在北京居住期间对当地的物品回收文化和媒体考古学的研究而创作,同时也一次现场的行为表演。艺术家利用鬼市作为展览平台,意在使作品在无秩序性和不确定性上延伸,使人期待种种不期而遇。
