Will be in Beijing and Shandong in April, London in May. Let me know if you would like to meet. 四月份会在北京和山东,五月会在伦敦,欢迎见面聊一聊。

I am writing a daily post about one artwork and hope to form a ‘list’ about myself, an idea transformed from Umberto Eco’s Infinity of Lists. So far I have written for two months and find I need to take a change to strengthen the interconnections between artworks in one ‘list’. While I am taking a rest, you are welcome to read the past posts on Weibo. It’s in Chinese.

“2019年的试验,是我会每天写一件自己喜欢的作品。当然,我并没有什么预先的规划,可能围绕一个主题,可能是接龙式地从昨天写到的小问题开始,或者只是映照进那天我的遭遇。但我希望通过这份无尽的清单,不断的掏掘出我更深的迷恋,像Photoshop里的描点工具一样勾勒出我自己的形状。这当然是徒劳的,但就像我们在自己和对时间的幻觉中构建出了节历,我们和自己漫无秩序的生活的关系,或许也可以在对艺术的困惑里浮现出来,透过书写一份清单。”这是新年第一天时写下的,写了两个月之后我发现自己陷入了打卡的疲惫,而不再是试图省察自身。所以最近暂停一下,调整好方向后再重启。
