野悼的诗意\Living in Oblivion

        有些人会说,牺牲是走向成功必须付出的代价,然而黄晓亮的最新艺术项目——《样板间:野掉的诗意》——迫使我们去面对人类在后工业人造环境中消极度日的现实。我们没有去保护美丽自然的馈赠,相反却假借现代化和发展的名义,在具有讽刺意味的欲望驱使下,继续消耗我们的自然资源,毁灭天然美景。我们在追求成功并渴望更好的生活水准的同时,也作出了令我们一步步远离自然的妥协和让步。《样板间:野掉的诗意》促使我们追忆那已经失落的一切,微妙地触及这种缺失给我们的精神世界带来的影响。这次活动成为黄晓亮在北京的首次个展,作品将以声音与动画和录像投影相结合的形式展出。

While some would argue that sacrifice is part of achieving success, Huang Xiaoliang’s most recent project--Open House: Living in Oblivion--forces us to face the reality of passively living in an “artificial” post-industrial environment. Rather than preserve the natural beauty bestowed upon us, we are plagued by the ironic desire to consume our natural resources and destroy the natural landscape under the guise of modernization and development. As we strive for “success” and long for a “better” living standard, we make compromises that lead us farther and farther away from nature. Open House: Living in Oblivion encourages us to remember what we have lost and subtly touches on the impact this loss is having on our psyche. This event marks Huang’s first solo exhibition in Beijing. The artist combines sound with animation and video projections to create this installation.
