    Project overview:

    “Art Project at the Site of Zhuantang Dismantling Area” is a social art action initiated by Wang Ziyue which is a combination of young artists working in Zhuantang Town, Hangzhou. This 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 discusses 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. At the same time, I hope that this is a linked action. In the process, people from different identities can be joined to imagine, go through the production, and practice a reproduction of a different relationship.

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

    Theme: Inspired by the “Occupy House Movement” that emerged in Berlin in the 1970s, it was independently stationed in the demolition building and proposed the possibility and application of its transformation. During the six-month resident creation period, there are many possibilities for “recycling” a nail house demolition building with “history”.

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

    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 form of social life in a period of transition between the city and the countryside.

At present, the six 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.

    主题:我邀请了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。
