無同空间荣幸呈现葛雅静的首个个展「POWER」,展出艺术家2019年至2020年创作的最新作品。


当代政治社会构建在例外领域这个隐秘且“神圣”的地基上,在这个游离在俗世之外的特权空间里,至高权力规定着一切,却又不受其所制定的规则制约。权的双重形式,在疫情/后疫情时代被格外清晰地展现出来。在权的压迫性和否定性向民众示弱之时,其生产性和肯定性“鼓舞”了大众。而在艺术家葛雅静的作品中,这种双重性被隐喻在画作中的“拳头”里。“听说大拇指向外或内收的区别就像狗在冲你呲牙或摇尾巴一样。” 她通过此种独特的艺术语言,感受着在当下不安的环境中,人们面对生命之脆弱的无力感。


突发的疫情所带来的危机感与焦虑感,任何人都无法逃避。对于至高权力而言,当代人作为潜在的,结构性上的“神圣人”,其神圣性在“生命对于一个掌控死亡的权力的臣服”中得到体现。 因而在葛雅静此次展出的作品中,一种原始的、慢性的且难以挣脱开的刺痛感隐藏在那些反复出现的被解构的拳、脚、牙齿、肉体等元素里。尤其是在「初见」和「2020」中,关于此次疫情的感官记忆通过对扭曲的身体与被解剖的肉体之描绘,以极具压迫感和包裹感的方式呈现出来。骨头(尤其是拳头)与肉在每件作品中不断地重现堆砌,人作为有机体被一一分解,这也正是阿甘本所说的“赤裸生命”在视觉上的当代诠释。


面对权/拳,艺术家的抗争不再“私密”,而是通过美学的播散进入大众视野。葛雅静的创作长期保持着质朴的气息,不论这个真实世界如何变化,艺术家选择保持原初。


“2020是灰黑色的一年,世界的荒诞恐怖片持续上演,人们也都被迫紧缩内收,全世界不同时间都按下暂停键以保卫生命,拳头有人理解为示威,反抗……而我只是想在工作中留住时间,留住生命的痕迹。”


已经无所谓反抗还是顺从,沉浸在葛雅静的作品中,随着生命体的被解构与再凝固,“权”也逐渐被消解。


Wooton Gallery is honored to present Ge Yajing's first solo exhibition POWER, which displays the latest works created by the artist from 2019 to 2020.


Contemporary political society is built on the secret and "sacred" foundation of the field of exception. In this privileged space outside the secular world, sovereign power rules everything but is not restricted by the rules it makes. The dual form of power is demonstrated in this pandemic/post-pandemic time. When the oppressive and negative nature of power showed weakness to the people, its productive and affirmative nature "inspired" the people. In the artist’s paintings, this duality is metaphorised in the "fists”. "I heard that the difference between thumbs outward or inward is like a dog gnawing at you or wagging its tail." Through this unique artistic language, she feels the powerlessness when people face the fragility of life in the current uneasy environment. 


The sense of crisis and anxiety brought about by the sudden pandemic is inevitable. For the sovereign power, contemporary people, are potential and structural “homines sacri”. Their sacredness expresses "life's surrender to a power that controls death." Therefore, in those works, a primitive and chronic tingling sensation is hidden in those deconstructed fists, feet, teeth, flesh, and other elements. Especially in First View and 2020, the sensory memory of the pandemic is presented in a very oppressive and enveloping way through the depiction of the distorted body and the dissected flesh. Bones (particularly fists) and flesh are constantly reappearing and building upon in each artwork, and human beings are broken down as an organism. This is also the contemporary visual interpretation of what Giorgio Agamben calls "naked life".


Facing power/fists (these two words are homophonic in Chinese), the artist's revolt is no longer "private", but enters the public eye through the dissemination of aesthetics. Ge Yajing's creations have long maintained a natural and genuine atmosphere. Under the changing circumstance, the artist chooses to stay true.


"2020 is a gray and dark year. An absurd horror film is continuing staging in reality and people have been forced to retrench. The whole world presses the pause button at different times to defend lives. Some people see the fists as protests and resistances…and I just want to freeze time at work and sculpt the traces of life."


To revolt or to obey makes no difference here; being immersed in Ge Yajing's works, as the life forms are deconstructed and re-solidified, the power is gradually dissolved.
