(TO ZHILE ART SPACE)

新年到来的一天后,中国政府开始实施严厉的措施,用以遏制那已经开始蔓延的新型病毒。那些较高危的地区已被完全封锁,那里的人们被禁足家中,与外界保持着最少的甚至为零的联系。中国的其他地区则采取了相对缓和的措施,然而实际上大部分的经济和社会活动都已停摆一个月。互联网,充斥着大量或真实或虚假的信息,以及或理性或极端的评论,成为了我们唯一的沟通桥梁。我们日日夜夜,在同一个空间里,以自身的恐惧和焦虑为食,为继续生存和保持理性而战。

 

这是一份以这段时间为灵感和冲动的文档,是一个富有个人创造力的游戏。我在这里摄像另外一个自我,让那个自我发声,那个不知理智和成熟为何物,在疫情期间犹如一头被强制紧闭的野兽的我。

A day after the start of the new year the Chinese authorities began taking drastic measures to contain the further expansion of a new virus. The areas of greatest danger were completely closed off and people confined to their homes with minimal or no contact with the outside. In most of the country there have been less harsh actions, but they have virtually paralyzed most of the economic and social activities for a month. It has been the Internet, with its mass of news - real or fake - and comments - rational and extreme - the only line of communication between all of us. Day and night in the same space feeding on our fears and anxieties, fighting to not get carried away and to remain rational.

This is an impulsive document of these times, a personal creative game where I have photographed and given voice to my other self, the one who does not know about reasoning and maturity, and lives these days  like an animal in forced confinement.
