Hu Xiangqian, Xiang Qian Museum, Video, Color, Sound, 14’31”, 2010

Xiang Qian Museum is an ongoing collection of artworks that exists in Hu Xiangqian’s mind. According to the artist, a museum collection is usually a collection of materials – the physical existence of artworks, while the collection at Xiang Qian Museum is represented through the artist’s body and conveyed to the audience–Xiang Qian Museum is non-materialistic. Hu believes art exists through his performance without physical form, as he said: “I think the best thing about art is that we are able to carry it around to wherever we go.”

Zhu Jia, Repeat On Purpose

将一台超级 8 毫米摄影机放置在冰箱最里端的角落里,镜头朝向冰箱门,开启摄录键,将摄影机处在自动录影的状态下,关上冰箱门。再打开冰箱门,随意的拿取一件东西;关上冰箱门。再次打开冰箱门随意的放置一件东西;关上冰箱门。反反复复重复这组动作。冰箱门打开时冰箱的照明灯被开启,录影机自动记录下有光照状态下的影像,冰箱门关闭时,录影机则记录下没有图像的图像。作品既是在这两种交替的状态下将时间延续着。将声音部分主动的去除,是强调图像本身存在的主观性。
