exhibition with Aspartime, Charm, Lin Ke, Lulu Li, Michelle Proksell

Date: May 30 - July 4, 2015
Location: I: project space

Various events in collaboration with electronic musician and the artists of wangwangwang throughout the duration of the exhibition.

The generation of “digital natives” working now is a generation that doesn’t know a life without computers. For this generation, daily use of the Internet is the norm, to the point that the lines between online and offline are practically nonexistent.These artists have moved beyond surfing and working only in the virtual world, but now use digital strategies to create objects that exist in the real world.Like the brush for a painter the computers and software is not used for technical means but to create a consciousness and a body.
Artie Vierkant characterized this shift in his publication"Net Aesthetics 2.0" as follows: "Artists after the Internet thus take on a role more closely aligned to that of the interpreter, transcriber, narrator, curator, architect." The exhibition 网网网 | wangwangwang will bring together artists that use and appropriate material found online in various ways: from sampling to copy-and-paste, using the aesthetic of Social media platforms, Chatting tools or Youtube videos. The ever-expanding mass of images found online gives them the ideal base to engage with them, to share, reproduce, alter, and distribute them more easily than ever before in human history.
If art can be said to reflect the conditions of the world in which it is made, art that engages with the technology of an era can perhaps be said to have a particular grasp on contemporaneous visions of the future.

"网网网"的艺术家们在展出期间与一些电子音乐人合作,看看能产生怎样的灵感的火花。
目前活跃在职场的“数码一族”已经完全不能离开电脑生活了。对于这类人来说,每天面对电脑已经成了一种生活准则,他们甚至已经无法区分虚拟和现实的差别。这些数码艺术家们已经超越了平常人对于网络和数码的普通需求,他们已经运用数码手段在现实世界中构建了来自虚拟世界的物体,就像画笔对于一个画家一样,电脑和软件不仅仅可以用于高科技,还可以创造出意识和躯体。
Artie Vierkant在他的作品《NetAesthetics 2.0》中为这样的事物做了释义:在艺术家将自身融入到互联网以后,他(她)自身的角色就更加接近于一个翻译、抄写员、解说员、策展人和建筑师。所以这次“网网网”展览将齐聚擅长利用从互联网上各种渠道找到的适当材料的艺术家,比如抽样中采取的“复制粘贴”,利用社交媒体产生的平台,聊天工具或Youtube视频。在互联网上不断扩大的图片量给予了他们的最为理想的基础,他们可以分享、重制、改动,可以让他们的艺术创作达到人类历史上从未有过的简单程度。
如果说艺术可以改变客观世界的客观条件,那么当艺术和科技相结合的时候,就可以通过现在,一瞥未来。
