    Project overview:

    “Art Project at the Site of Zhuantang Dismantling Area” is an art project jointly initiated by young artists from Hangzhou who was initiated by WangZiyue , the project aims to promote young artists to participate more actively and explore practical issues in the public domain.

    During the creative process, the artist constantly pays attention to、thinks and discuss how to adhere to the complex and in-depth ideology into the demolition, how to relate to the local residents and the local ecological environment, how to retell and activate the demolition of the waste market , etc. Since April 2012, the project has been implemented and completed seven activities, respectively, the“demolition of the screening conference”、the third phase of the “Art Project at the Site of Zhuantang Dismantling Area”、"GiveBus"、the social theater is " Floating Life in Crevice "、“Art Project at the Site of Zhuantang Dismantling Area” Retrospective + Seminar.


    The project is divided into five parts


    A “Demolition of the screening conference”(2012.8.9-2014.8.9)

    Cruator:WangZiyue
    Theme: The project is a long-term projection program. artists are required to complete the creation of documentary or experimental video based on the demolition phenomenon that is taking place across the country. The project will reflect the dissimilar demolition phenomenon of the artists to the public through different video works.


    B the third phase of the “Art Project at the Site of Zhuantang Dismantling Area ”(2012.4-2012.11,Resident project)

    No.1 (2012.4.11)

    Cruator:WangZiyue 、SunXiaole
    Theme: Public events that occur within a day. Participating artists enter the two adjacent houses in the in the demolition houses. A life theater that co-interprets.

    No.2

    Cruator:WangZiyue 、SunXiaole

    Theme: A change in a demolition block within a month. Participants were grouped by three people, Select a demolition house in this block for a month-long resident creation.

    No.3

    Cruator:WangZiyue 、SunXiaole

    Theme: “Reuse” of the demolition area. Participants from different industries have different interpretations on “reuse” of demolition ruins.


    C “Give Bus”(2013.3.16-9.16) (continuous public option)

    Cruator:WangZiyue

    Theme: The six-month resident creation period. Multiple reuse possibilities for a "historical" nail household。


    D Social theater “ Floating Life in Crevice " (2014.3-2014.6)

    Director:WangZiyue

    Theme: I invited a group living in buildings awaiting demolition to re-enact their lives in fact this is not “acting”, this is them doing what they do in everyday life: going to work during the day, chatting after dinner, keeping accounts at night. This building has three floors with three rooms each, and each room becomes a stage. They treat the building as a way station, rehearsing their lives in each room, taking turns to perform. Aside from documentary-like sections, the video also contains rooms that can only be peeked into. Through the peephole, only abstract forms of touch, sound, shadows and crawling, in all their theatricality, can be seen. These anonymous individuals take on a more secretive state within the private space.

       Those who have left the countryside carry about their unfamiliar urban life in a way that is neither of the city nor of the village. They are constantly changing between different areas of labor, wandering inside and outside the factory, getting smothered by information from mass media, adding in all kinds of new experiences and forging together some from of social life in a period of transition between the city and the countryside.


    E “Art Project at the Site of Zhuantang Dismantling Area” Retrospective + Seminar ( 2014.9.12,AMNUA )

    Theme: "Nostalgia or forced demolition"? We should pay attention to how people's impression of the demolition ruins in the urbanization are stereotyped; we should pay attention to the ideology behind the creation of demolition theme.

    We should be aware of the specific contradictions in the specific circumstances and the possibility of "re-use" of demolition ruins。How to enter the demolition discussion with a complex and deep ideology? (both against violence and non-consultation,on the one hand, against the collusion of state and capitalism, the complicity of local government and developers, and on the other hand, the understanding of the inevitability of urbanization)...

    Through this retrospective exhibition, the academic exchanges and discussions between artists from Hangzhou and Nanjing will be carried out on the above issues.



       The project was planned and implemented in April 2012. At present, the seven activities have been completed, with a total of 60 artists involved, and over 100 works have been created, including installations, photography, experimental videos, documentaries and multimedia theaters.The participating artists bring their problems of the current society and the demolition site into their respective lives and creations through the demolition area.During this activity, the participants either enlighten each other, or self-organize until they reach their destinations. Participants entered the ruins of the demolition area, or reconstruct their imagination of the past through various forms of artistic creation, or reflect on the impact of blind development and over-modernization on individual memory.In the future, I hope to continue to focus on more complex and diversified social issues. Based on our historical coordinates, I try to make a broader and in-depth discussion and creation of public life based on the historical view and horizontal geography.

  • 转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划(2012-2014)

     

    计划概述
    “转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划”是由王子月策划发起的一个集合了杭州的年轻艺术家们共同创作的艺术项目。旨在推动年轻艺术家更积极主动地参与、探讨公共场域中的 现实问题。艺术家在创作过程中不断关注、思索、探讨如何秉持复杂且深入的意识形态进入拆迁,如何与当地居民、当地生态环境发生关系,如何重述、激活拆迁废 墟等。转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划于2012年4月始至今已实施完成七次活动,分别是“拆了放映会”、三期的“转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划”、 “GiveBus”、社会剧场《罅隙浮生》、“转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划”回顾展+讨论会。

    转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划分五部分:

    A “拆了放映会”(2012.8.9-2014.8.9)
    策划人:王子月
    主题:一项长期的放映计划。以全国各地正在发生的拆迁现象为素材,完成纪录片或实验影像等的创作,放映会通过不同的影像作品将艺术家眼中不一样的拆迁现象投映给大众。

    B 转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划 三期(2012.4-2012.11,驻地创作)
    第1期(2012.4.11)
    策划人:王子月、孙晓乐
    主题:一天内的公共事件。参与人进驻到两栋相邻的拆迁房,于一天内共同“演绎”的生活剧场。

    第2期(2012.5.1-5.21)
    策划人:王子月、孙晓乐
    主题:一条拆迁街区一个月内的变化。参与人以三人为一组,对此街区的一栋拆迁房进行为期一个月的驻地创作。

    第3期(2012.11.11-11.18)
    策划人:王子月
    主题:拆迁区的“再利用”。来自不同行业的活动参与人对拆迁废墟“再利用”不同的解读。

    C “Give Bus”(2013.3.16-9.16)(延续性的公共方案)
    策划人:王子月
    主题:半年驻地创作期。对一座有“历史”的钉子户拆迁楼“再利用”的N种可能性。

    D 社会剧场《罅隙浮生》(2014.3-2014.6)
    导演:王子月
    主题:邀请一群生活在待拆迁的房屋周围的人们来出演各自的生活,其实并不在于“演”,而是直接就像日常生活中那样去做:白天打工,饭后聊天,晚上记账。这栋 待拆迁的房屋一共三层,每层三个房间,而每一个房间都将作为一个舞台。将此处作为驿站的人们,在各个房间中排练各自的生活,并各自轮番上演。除了颇具纪录 片感的部分外,影像中还包含几个只能去窥伺的房间。从猫眼中,只能看到更具有舞台感的抽象的摸、听、影、爬等形式,这些匿名的个体,在私人空间中是更为隐 秘的状态。离开土地后的人们,以既非城市又非农村的方式,经营着自己陌生的城镇生活,在劳动场域之间不断转换,工厂里和工厂外游移,被大众媒体信息掩盖着 的一切新经验共同塑造着当下城乡过渡时期的社会生活。

    E 转塘拆迁区驻地创作计划-回顾展+讨论会(2014.9.12 南京艺术学院美术馆)

    主题:

    “乡愁、怀旧或强拆?”,我们应当关注到人们对城市化发展中拆迁废墟的印象如何被刻板;关注到拆迁主题的创作背后的意识形态。意识到拆迁具体情况下有着具体的矛盾;意识到拆迁废墟“再利用”的可能性。如何秉持复杂且深入的意识形态进入拆迁讨论?(既是反对暴力的、反对非协商的,一方面对国家和资本主义的合谋,地方政府和开 发商的同谋的反抗,另一方面是对城市化建设必然性的理解)…通过此次的回顾展,就上述问题展开杭州、南京两地艺术家的交流和讨论。

    该计划于2012年4月开始策划实施,目前完成的七次活动,参与人数共计60人次,创作作品累计达百余件,包含装置、摄影、实验影像、纪录片及多媒体剧场等。参与艺术家通过拆迁区这一场域,将各自对当下社会和拆迁现场的问题带入各自的生活和创作中。在这段旅程中,或相互启发,或自我梳理,直至到达各自的目 的地。在活动中,年轻艺术家们进入拆迁区废墟之中,通过各种艺术创作形式,或重建对过去的想象,或反思盲目开发、过度现代化对于个体记忆的影响。未来,希望能继续将目光投向更加复杂与多元的社会问题,基于我们的历史坐标,试图以时间的纵向与地理的横向为参考,对公共生活进行更加广泛、深入的讨论和创作。
