Along the Lane - Section Q

Along the Lane  /  道上滾球


Responding to thetheme about art production, I comtemplated the middle nature of ‘production’. Production lies between the beginning and the end. It becomes ambiguous when the course is detached as an isolated scene.


So as art production, its pureness is confusing. For example, many people may usually wonder ‘Who is art made for?’ and ‘Where would artwork goes to?. Thus art production itself is neglected from the discussion. Most of the artworks merely fall into the category of ‘fair’.


This work depicts an imaginary lane, where expressionless participators keep on putting spheroids to the line of rolling belt.


回應展覽關於「藝術生產」的主題,我思考生產於本質上作為一個「過程」的特質,所謂「過程」,往往置於中介位置,介乎開首與結尾之間,因此,「過程」的獨立展現帶來種種懸念。


同樣地,「藝術生產」本質上的純粹性亦使其顯得迷濛,例如「為誰創作?」或者「作品最後何去何從」都是普遍非藝術生產者的疑惑,最後「藝術生產」自身反倒被忽略在旁,大部分藝術作品亦只淪為一張張中庸的面孔。


本作以自我構想的滾球軌道為中心,配以帶點散慢的人物,展現一種既無奈又庸碌的中速。
