    自90年代开始,随着中国经济加速,“拆迁”作为城市变迁中无法避免的一个现象,成为激化社会的矛盾的话题。我在面对“拆迁”问题时,一直警惕表面化地简单挪用现实,使自己去面对复杂而深刻的社会问题,理解到其背后是矛盾的观念、复杂的情绪并存。

    《时间之嘴吞噬的都是它自己的尾巴》作为我个人对于“拆迁”问题认识的阶段性总结作品,秉持着复杂且深入的意识形态进行,把拆迁现场当成社会剧场,选择使用多频录像来表现近年间我对于中国拆迁现状的思考: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。

    六频录像代表的是六个角色,分别是区长、旧城、钉子户、房地产商、自媒体和风水先生,它们共同构成一部现代化进程中的城市剧场。

     

    六个角色皆为超现实或魔幻的表现手法演绎。

    钉子户:一栋废墟中的钉子户被几辆玩具铲车包围、进攻。

    区长:一个7岁小朋友扮演的区长自娱自乐的玩一些小游戏,比如搭积木、剪彩等。

    房地产商:一只小黄鸭漫步在苯板做的房地产沙盘,沙盘上遍布的都是房地产的宣传广告语。

    旧城:石膏翻制的旧物林立,仿佛城市中的旧楼房,在夜间逐个爆破。

    风水先生:一位风水先生拿着罗盘对着一处废墟讲风水。

    自媒体:微信墙实时转播,全国各地的人都可以参与谈论“拆迁”问题。

     

     

    Since 1990s, the issue of “demolition” has become a hot topic and an unavoidable social consequence of China's economy accelerating. Instead of misappropriating the social reality surrounding the demolition issue, I always confront myself with the complexities of the social problem, trying to understand the ambivalent emotions and opinions lying behind.

    “The Time Will Swallows Its Own Tail ” is my attempt to summarize my understanding of forced urban relocation(through a work of art). To be against demolition is to be against violence and the lack of consultation. To be against demolition resists the collusion between the state and the capitalist system and the conspiracy between the local government and the real estate developers. However, my work still preserves the understanding of the inevitable deconstructing situation coming along with urbanization.

    Six videos describe six roles respectively which are District director , Dilapidated city, “Nail householder” (the people who refuses to move out of the demolition site), real estate developers, We-media and Augur . Together they form a city theater in the modernization process.

     

     

    All six characters are surreal or magical expressions.

    Nail householder: A nail householder surrounded by ruins is attacked by several toy forklift.

    District director: A 7-year-old “district director” is entertaining himself by playing games, building-block, ribbon-cutting, etc.

    Real estate developers: Among the advertising slogans sticking on a sandbox built on a benzene

    board, an innocent yellow duck is walking around.

    Dilapidated city : Gypsum reproduction of some old stuff alludes to the former territories of the city, exploding one by one late at night.

    Augur: A augur was talking about the feng shui while holding a compass amid the ruins.

    We-Media: Media users all over the world are discussing the demolition of the former territories via Wechat.
