2016 | 在地单元 | 执嘢 鳌湖映像

深莞交界之地一座有着百年之久的客家村落——观澜鳌湖老村。2013年至今,一群艺术家们相继走进这里,在风水池畔、民国私塾里、洛可可风格的碉楼下、龙眼荔枝树掩映的绿荫丛中,或谈论艺术话题,或挥毫创作。“执嘢”是广东白话里的日常用语,意为“收拾东西”,即关于某件物品的人为梳理,是指向于本土文化中世代沿袭积淀的日常性的再次剥离。而这种日常性的积淀已经深植于每一座百年老村的各个角落,深圳鳌湖老村就是其中最典型的一个。同时作为深圳最重要的当代艺术的发生地之一,这里也悄然的发生着一些改变。我们想通过几个在场和不在场的艺术的眼睛,试图重新还原一段于各种浪潮冲击下即将改变的历史瞬间,以影像、装置、行为、大地艺术及作品文献的形式呈现一个多元文化交融的历史老村的本来面貌。

The 100-year-old Hakka village-Guanlan Ao Lake Old Village is located at the border between Shenzhen City and Dongguan City. Since 2013, a group of artists have walked in here to have discussions about art or paint something creative in the beautiful pond-side places, private schools of the Republic of China, Rococo watch towns and under the Longan and Litchi trees. “Zhiye” is the common expression of “sort something out ” in Cantonese in Guangzhou. Sorting things out artificially is the main point of this word. In here, we use it to mean the way of sort out the everyday things again in local traditional culture. These things are rooted in the local traditional culture and carried on from generation to generation, and they exist in every corner of every centenary village. The Guanlan Ao Lake Old Village is the most typical example. As one of the most important place about Chinese modern art, it is changing quietly. Through the present and absent artists’ eyes, we try to restore a piece of history impacted by all kinds of tides of the times and present a multicultural original outlook of this old village with images, installations, performance art, earth art and literature.
