简介 About




策展人 :由宓


在古希腊文化中,艺术、工艺和其他实用的知识系统被归类为技术,而科学知识,如语法、几何、天文学属于认识论。亚里士多德做了这样的区分。在1652年去世后出版的《论绘画》(Trattato della pittura)著作中,列奥纳多·达·芬奇(Leonardo da Vinci)把艺术定义为科学,因此使艺术脱离了技术,脱离了被认为是下俗、卑贱工技或是后来的机械式技艺。有人声称绘画是由心理活动驱动的,与几何和数学有关,这支撑了这种理论。如果说随着现代艺术的出现,艺术从科学的、具象的转向解剖其自身的具象性,那么它是通过逐渐强调创造性的物质、身体性和突现性来实现的。然而,在中东和东方传统中,技术、艺术和科学的纠缠是长期存在的。



Zamani收藏的史诗在游牧民族的具象地毯中被捕获,在它们传播的过程中综合了新的想象力,与Anvar Musrespov的作品碰撞出新的火花。抽象图案亦可被颠倒过来,融合丰富的符码体系和生命结构,这在抽象地毯,郑毅强,凌海鹏和John Monteith的作品中得到体现 。徐丝易及杨鑫作品使身体脱颖而出,身体成为制造和被制造的媒介和内容。


Hyberbation虚拟现实作品中的虚拟佛教洞穴通过将其与当代偶像编码并将其插入当代体验经历中来重新构想神圣。由Kujiraplanet设计的基于计算机的魔方游戏在二维和三维空间中展开,唤起地毯制作过程中空间的不断变换和重新定位。最后,Sina Seifee的装置作品受到中东学者JasonBahbak Mohaghegh的作品《叛乱分子,诗人,神秘主义者,宗派主义者的作品:东方后现代主义的四个面具》的启发,从而推想研究了后现代中东地区出现的主体性模式。它在(中)东方后现代主义中出现的非对话,非叙事和流放空间的知识和幻想间游移。

Techne and Art: Ecologies of Pre- and Post-modern Subjectivities


Curated by You Mi


In ancient Greek culture, art, craftsmanship and other practical forms of knowledge were categorized as techne, whereas scientific knowledge such as grammar, geometry, astronomy belonged to episteme. Aristotle made such differentiation. In Trattato della Pittura published posthumously in 1652, Leonardo da Vinci took as task to define art as science, and so departed from craftmanship, which was regarded as artes vulgares et sordidae, or later the artes mechanicae. This undertaking was supported by claims that painting was driven by mental activities and associated with geometry and mathematics. If with the advent of modern art, art moved away from being scientific and representational so to anatomize its own representationality, it has done so by gradually emphasizing the material, the embodied and the emergent aspects of creativity. However, in the Middle-Eastern and Eastern traditions, the entanglement of techne, art and science sustains over time.


The show rounds up modern and contemporary carpets from Persia and works of contemporary art from Iran, Central Asia and China, eliciting dialogues on form, structures of thinking, bodily perception and affective capacity. Not reducible to any identitarian regimes, the works reveal pre-modern or postmodern ecologies of subjectivity.


Epics, captured in the pictorial carpets of the Zamani Collection, synthesize new imaginations as they and are passed on, creating new encounters with, for example, the works of Anvar Musrespov. Abstract patterns are reversed to incorporate the richness of signs, omens and structures of life, in the case of the abstract carpets and works of Zheng Yiqiang, Ling Haipeng and John Monteith. The act of making brings the body to the fore, as the body becomes the medium and content of making and being made, captured in the work of Xu Siyi and Yang Xin.


The virtual Buddhist cave in the Virtual Reality work by Hyperbation reimagines the sacred by encoding it with contemporary signs and inserting it into contemporary embodied experiences. And the computer-based Rubik’s cube game designed by Kujiraplanet rolls out in two dimensional and three-dimensional spaces, evoking the constant shifting and recentering in the process of carpet-making. Finally, the installation of Sina Seifee investigates and speculates on the modes of subjectivity emergent within the postmodern Middle-East, inspired by Middle-Eastern scholar Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh’s work "Insurgent, Poet, Mystic, Sectarian: The Four Masks of an Eastern Postmodernism". It zooms in and out of knowledge and speculation about nondialogue, nonnarrative, and radical exile spaces that have emerged in (Middle-) Eastern postmodernism.
