    The Sixth Day

     

    documentary of the opening performance, single-channel video, 28 minutes

     

    I set up a space where I combined PVC pipes, wide-angle lenses, plastic fabric and searching lights together. Through open casting call for amateur actors, I invited six ordinary people of different ages and professions to come to the exhibition space. and I want to present the samples that embody the lives of contemporaries and transfer their conversations to the space, creating a new space for communication and interaction. Though we only had five days for rehearsals, we gathered together to exchange the fragmentation of contemporary life and extract surprising findings from the contingency, challenging common sense and imagining new possibilities. Although the sixth day may not exist and will be the day that never come, hence we build a harmonious and balanced organism, to highlight the "collective unconscious" social phenomenon currently, meanwhile we look forward to creating a new collective memory and imaginary history as work together.

     

     

    第六天

     

    开幕表演现场全记录视频,单频录像,28分钟

     

    我设置了一个空间场景,将PVC管、广角镜、塑料布、探照灯等日常物集结在一起,通过公开招募不同职业年龄的普通民众,邀请他们参与进这个空间。我希望呈现当代个体生存现象的几个样本,把对话交流引入到表演现场,以创造新的交会空间。仅五天的共同排演时间,我们聚集在一起,在阐述当代生活碎片式的体验时,从日常生活中、从偶然性中提炼出令我们惊奇的发现,从而唤醒常识,去想象另一种可能。在大家的协同作用中,我们构建了一个和谐均衡的有机体,凸显当今“集体无意识”下的社会想象。与此同时,我们希冀共同创造新的集体记忆和想象的历史。尽管第六天也许是不存在的一天,永远不会到来的一天。
