阴谋论

策展人:Eric C. Shiner

 

 

2010年1月23日在798艺术区空间站将举办的“阴谋论”是旅美艺术家吴达新在北京举办的首次个展,由美国安迪沃霍尔美术馆策展人Eric C.Shiner策展。

   

自从卡尔·波普尔提出了“社会阴谋理论”(conspiracy theory of society)之后,在人类历史和社会时间中寻找阴谋的脚步就从没有停止过。从“光照会”(illuminati)到“美国登月”,从《货币战争》到“911空袭”,无一不被特别解释为某个个人或团体密谋策划的结果。这些具有颠覆性的结论以坊间传说、民间野史、论坛博客和小道消息的方式四处流出,从不需要严谨的证据和逻辑,荒诞到匪夷所思,刺激到豁然开朗。一切权力游戏、利益动机、敌我关系,都在幕后操纵和信息垄断之后,显得别有用心和高深莫测,错综复杂的偶然因素在这里都被解释成为了处心积虑的必然结果。

   

“温室效应”无疑也可以成为以物种、人类、星球命运为砝码的政治和权利搏弈的载体。“二氧化炭”、“全球变暖”、“冰川融化”、“绿色革命”成为了新的科学宗教的崇拜物和媒体强力推行的政治正确的价值观。“京都协议”和“哥本哈根会议”除了牵动全世界人类未来命运以外,更是一场发达国家与发展中国家关于低碳的经济增长点,碳关税、粮食生产、气候问题、限制与发展等关键词的深刻冲突。此次展览中,吴达新在空间中用物理方法制造了一整堵冰霜凝结成的10米×5米的墙,看似与周围的墙面并没有什么区别,好象什么也没有发生。但是这堵不停凝结和抓捕空气中被温度蒸腾的水蒸汽颗粒的极简主义白墙,同样可以被理解为大气环流中改变局部区域性气候的不可忽视的蝴蝶效应的一次完美的振翅。他一相情愿的在全球排放第二的中国,中国排放第一的北京,人为的抢救性的改造了岌岌可危的生物圈,为地球降了一场不大不小的温。以此来试图与观众进行一场关于环境、气候、能量、经济、政治、媒体、科学,人类与世界,国家与国家的关系的讨论。

CONSPIRACY THEORY

Curator:Eric C. Shiner 

 

Space Station is pleased to present Conspiracy Theory by artist Wu Daxin, at Space Station on January 23, 2010, in Beijing's 798 art district. Curated by Eric C. Shiner from the Andy Warhol Museum, the show marks the US-based artist’s first solo exhibition. 

 

Since Popper proposed his "conspiracy theory of society", the search for evidence of conspiracy has been ceaseless. From illuminati to "the lunar landing”, from Currency Wars to 9/11, none of these events have escaped conspiracy theories put forth by certain individuals or groups. In general, their arguments do not require precise evidence or supporting logic, they can be absurdly baffling, and provocatively stimulating. Such power games, interests often driven by antagonism, all seem to project the conspirators' impenetrable ulterior motives through behind-the-scene manipulation and an information monopoly. As a consequence, complex coincidental factors are often explained away as the ultimate evidence of plots and schemes.

 

Unquestionably, the Green House Effect thus becomes a vehicle for politics and power games in the name of fate: the fate of our race, the fate of humanity and the fate of the planet. Terms such as carbon dioxide, global warming, glacial melting and the green revolution are revered as objectives of our new scientific belief, or as politically correct values endorsed by the media. The Kyoto Agreement and the Copenhagen Summit, beside their close ties to the fate of the global population, also reflect a poignant conflict between developed and developing nations on issues of low carbon economic growth, custom tax on coal, agricultural production and climate issues along with its setbacks and developments. In the current exhibition, Wu Daxin applies physical principles to construct a wall of ice measuring 10 x 5 meters. The wall does not show any physical distinctions from the other walled surfaces in the space, suggesting that nothing has taken place. However, a minimalist white wall, that continuously crystallizes and captures water molecules evaporating into the air, can be understood as condensing the often overlooked butterfly-effect affecting regional climate change within the global context. His proactive experiment to lower global temperature as an act of human intervention on the deteriorating ecosystem in Beijing – the highest carbon emission city in China in a nation ranked the second highest in the world – hopes to initiate a discussion with the audience on the environment, climate, energy, economy, politics, media, science, humanity and their relationship with the world and international diplomacy.
