流觞

THE FLOATING WINE CUP

2006-2011年,每次在沙滩上散步,总是随手拍下沙滩的漂流物,同时也对这些无主之物充满想象。在离开厦门徘徊西湖四年之后,为了还原记忆中的沙滩,我把六年来拍摄的近100件漂流物,做成了《流觞》。

除了图像部分,另一重要内容是考察漂流物的历史。在展示时,每件漂流物的调查结果与图像一一对应,文字和图像的意义同样重要。

这些文字有两个来源:一是采用考古学博物学的方法,客观考察它们的历史;对“查无此物”者,则向亲友、社会机构等征集故事。各种年龄、身份的作者在各种机缘巧合下汇聚在同一片沙滩。

这件作品是我“全球漂流物计划”的第一件,同样的形式和不同的考察方法将会在印度,日本,土耳其,南非,巴西,阿根廷,法国,冰岛等国不限期地持续进行。

THE FLOATING WINE CUP

From 2006 to 2011, every time when I walked on the beach, I took the pictures of the drifting things randomly, imagining the stories of them. In order to revive the beach in my memory, I made a collection called The Floating Wine Cup, including one hundred pictures of drifting stuff that I photoed in the last 6 years, after I lived around XiHu (the West Lake) for 4 years.

Except for image, the historical research of drifting things is another important task. It is as important to add explanation to the drifting things one by one as displaying the pictures.

The explanation is mainly gathered by two ways: one is to invest their histories in archaeological way; the other one is to collect some stories told by friends and families, or from the society. Thus authors in all ages and different status were gathered on the same beach by chance.

This is the first piece of works of my “Global Drifting Things Plan”, and the research in same form but different ways will go forwards continuously in several countries such as India, Japan, Turkey, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, France and Iceland.

INDIA DRIFT

《印度漂流》是《流觞》的后续作品,图像部分由印度南部四个沿海的邦收集到的100件漂流物组成,同样被随意放置在一个巨大的沙滩图片上,这片沙滩是在孟买的 Chowpatty海滩拍摄合成的。

这些漂流物同样都有各自的故事,这些故事是与印度当地人相遇相识的记录,作者根据相遇的不同感受,用不同的文体,多变的叙述,在100个细节里表现了两个文化背景的人相遇时发生的或深或浅故事。

这件作品制作的过程中,作者详细记录了思乡的情绪,同时希望克服自己不善交流的性格在陌生国度的经验,希望在完成作品的同时,改善自己的交流障碍。
