    Stealing the Senses

    As Michael Taussig writes in Mimesis and Alterity: A Particular history of the Senses: '…the mimetic faculty carries out its honest labor suturing nature to artifice and bringing sensuousness to sense by means of what was once called sympathetic magic…' The majority of the works are newly commissioned site-specific projects and collectively form a passage of immersive environments in various and extended reaches of the gallery, literally spilling out into the cafe, the fire escape, into ceilings, the street, through corridors and into the sky at dusk. 

    The works address thematic concerns and issues spanning from the psychology of incarceration to cosmology, from the sensual usefulness of domestic-scaled functional objects to integrated systems of artificial life. What is shared in these works is a concern for activation or interaction through human sensory perception. An exploration of the impact of immersive experience is offered primarily through visceral rather than virtual means. Through stealing our senses for a dedicated time, in a dedicated place and space, artists corral our attention to multivalent ideas about the forces and sensibilities of contemporary living.

    安的笔记

    安喜欢跟那些内心世界很深厚的人交往,每一次对话都好似无法言喻的美妙旅行,那些内心深厚的人们总是有些别人看不到的力量。他们总是简约而沉默,不好多言,可是却在某个不经意的交汇之中带来不可思议的奇妙火花。而这些奇妙的力量却与他们浑圆的外面完好的结合在一起,不会格外耀眼。

    有时候经常被人问起,在如此忙碌的过程当中为何还要这样支持着这个地方。有时候真的很想提供一个清晰而简单的答案,但是语言与思考的位置关系更类似于平行而非交汇。于是,沉默成为大多数的回复。

    生长成为一个人,生存不是唯一的目的,还需要拥有属于自己的人格和行为方式,之后需要勇敢的宣讲出来,被认可,然后执行下去。才得以称之为圆满的人生。有些东西,你看得到,抑或看不到,他们都是在那里。
