家作坊将再次举办大型北京二手交换市集!在这一天,把你家淘汰下来的物品,如手机、衣服、箱包,旧家具及其它生活用品带到家作坊来,与需要它的人 交换,使你的闲置物品变成别人的宝贝,别人长期不用的东西成为你的最爱!这一天,货币不再流通,带来你的物品,做好“讨价还价”的准备!除了交换 闲置物品以外你也可以交换服务和技能,比如,用帮别人看孩子来交换非限行号车辆的一日使用权,用一顿自家做的便饭来交换网站设计。

HomeShop is again hosting our big Beijing swap meet. The purpose of the day is for you to gather everything you’ve left covered in dust in your closet and swap these things with other people who can make new use of them! Traders should bring everything from unwanted mobile phones to clothing and bicycles, and get ready to drive hard bargains. Money is no currency on this day, just bring your stuff and prepare your sharp and sparkly bargaining tongue! In addition to swapping stuff, you can also swap your skills and services, like trading babysitting time for a day’s use of a valid license plate on the right driving day, or a home-cooked meal in exchange for website design services.

享用特制的“平等交易”蛋糕和其他交换者制作的饮品,观看现场展出的不同“种子交换库”设计与设计师本人进行交流。或者观看一些短片,短片内容关于我们的消费习惯怎样导致了“垃圾社会”的产生,以及极少数尽力给旧物赋予新生命的人。第二届WaoBao!将同时带来讲座和工作坊,介绍其他关于浪费、再利用和农业循环的新观点,你可以在家进行实践,使你的生活空间更绿色!时间安排如下:

Enjoy our “fair-trade” cakes and drinks from other swappers, and while you’re here, view and cast your votes for the design of a new seed exchange container, watch a few short films about how our consumer habits have created a big trash society and the few individuals who are trying to give new life to it.  WaoBao! No. Two will also feature guest lectures and workshops to introduce other fresh ideas about the cycles of waste, reuse and agriculture that you can “re-cycle” at home! See the schedule as follows:

  • 14:30__农业大学Tony Fuller教授发表演讲,关于近期在云南的实践
  • 14:30__talk by Dr. Tony Fuller (adjunct professor, China Agricultural University) on recent agricultural practices in Yunnan
  • 15:30__workshop and demonstration of hydroponic gardening with plastic bottles
  • 15:30__使用塑料瓶水栽植物的工作坊和展示
  • 16:30__workshop and demonstration on worm composting with mini-worm kits available for trading
  • 16:30__供交易的微型蚯蚓堆肥盒制作工作坊和展示
  • 17:00__workshop to make upcycled toys from used clothing and fabrics
  • 17:00__使用二手服装和布料制作玩具的工作坊
  • 18:00__WaoBao! auction of the super goodies with super auctioneer SHEN Bao
  • 18:00__WaoBao! 超级拍卖师神包带来的精品拍卖会

 

逃离网络,清扫生活中的混乱。我们正接收各类赠品,以建立一个精品库。如果你有很多宝贝却没有空间存放,又想看到你的宝贝再次得到宠爱,欢迎在开 放时间内拜访家作坊,带上你的物品来换取在二手交换市集中使用的交换券。(也可以在14号当天带来你的宝贝们)!

Get off of the internet, and WaoBao the clutter in your life instead! We’re already accepting donated must-haves to develop a stockpile of treasures, so for those of you with the bounty and not the space but the desire to see things loved a second time, please drop by HomeShop during opening hours to bring items and get tickets redeemable for trade at the swap meet. (You can also bring your stuff directly on the 14th!)

798见鬼啦…… Sighting in 798! 

由艺术工作者们运作的空间“家作坊” 关门已近一年。此次参与「不在图像中行动」群展,是为了对其五年半的工作和玩乐经历进行一次回溯性寻析。自2008年 这个协作式项目成立,其自我组织与进程性的空间、参与者和活动,无不显示出多样性和互动性;而这些特性,既无法用某单一视角进行统辖,也 无可能完整复原其 具体情状。此次回顾因此是矛盾的、主观的、也是对话式的。

 也因此,「我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat」项目,毋宁说是在短暂回忆以及残留印记中进行的一次“采样”。它们来自日常生活、组织结构、诸多的可能性和死胡同、从未存在之物 事,也来自一些幽 灵。归档于此的这100多个物件便是此次采样成果。家作坊还特地制作了视频对话,印制了导览册,为您提供陪同与注解,以方便您在其间游 历;它们详载的历史 所能引发的叙事之旅,不一而足。回溯是生产;是一种出没于这一系列旧物件中的“精灵”;也是一种马后炮协作。  “玩儿”的时间不再有了!

Almost one year after artist-run space HomeShop closed its doors, its participation in the group exhibition Unlived by What is Seen is an attempt to retrospectively address five-and-a-half years of work and play. The multiplicity and dynamics that defined this collaborative project since its inception in 2008—including its spaces, people and activities, self-organized and processual—do not necessarily add up to a singular viewpoint, nor can they be easily mapped. Retrospection is paradoxical. Subjective. Dialogical.

「我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat」thus appears here as a sampling of ephemera and residuals—from daily life, from the structures of organization, from other possibilities and deadends, from things that never were, and, from a few ghosts. Specially prepared video dialogues and printed guides shall serve as your escorts and annotations to the more than 100 items included in this archive; the history they recount may lead you on any number of narrative journeys. Retrospection is production. A spirit attending a series of old objects. A kind of collaboration postmortem. There’s no more time to play!

「我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat」项目的构思者和实施者包括:小欧、Michael EDDY、何穎雅、Fotini LAZARIDOU-HATZIGOGA和曲一箴.

「我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat」has been conceived and carried out by Orianna CACCHIONE, Michael EDDY, Elaine W. HO, Fotini LAZARIDOU-HATZIGOGA and Twist QU.

策展⼈人提供的家作坊介绍 description of HomeShop provided by the curators
这段短⽂文贴在紧邻我们装置的墙⾯面上,出现在开幕前两天,惊到了我们所有⼈人。它把家作坊概括成追求“绝对平等式民主”的“精神化”⼩小组,我们中的⼤大多数⼈人显然对此感到荒诞,或者它也反映出“该如何将家作坊塞进展览的策展理念”这样⼀一种粗暴的误解。⽽而与此同时,我们中却也有⼈人挺喜欢他们这个“⾼高级⿊黑”的。
This wall text appeared next to our installation two days before the opening, surprising us all with its framing of HomeShop as a “spiritual” project pursuing “absolute equal-democracy”. Most of us felt this was patently absurd or simply reflected a gross misunderstanding as to how HomeShop fit within the curatorial direction of the exhibition—while certain others among us were quite pleased by its lofty exaggerations.

作为《我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat》展览的一部分,家作坊印制了自己的册子,用导览手册的形式对所有展示的档案物进行了编号叙述。以下这篇是1号入口:

《我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat》
档案,包括102不同尺⼨寸和媒介的物件
2014年

不参加群展《不在图像中⾏行动》也是选项之⼀一,并且的确被认真地考虑过。把家作坊的实践带进798艺术区,将引发“转译”问题,尤其是在情境关系敏感性与批判性⽅方⾯面。另外⼀一个问题涉及⾃自主性,这是来⾃自不同领域的个体共处时所共有的⼀一个愿望。在⼀一个艺术区内,这不太可能再被复制,⽽而在实践确实发⽣生过后则更不会再出现。

但,邀请者所设定的条件⾜足够开放,且释放出⼀一种挑战,即,到底如何定义回顾的阶段。我们已不再是“家作坊”,这将我们置⼊入了⼀一种⾝身份困境——我们是谁,是什么——尽管如此,因为它⾜足够有趣,我们达成⼀一致,决定再次共同⼯工作。不过,虽然这个特别的⼩小组是因过去之所是⽽而再次聚合,却并不意味着,他们的⺫⽬目的仅仅是对过去之所是进⾏行重现。此外,此次集合也不是为了来party,作此声明,是因为有⼈人或许会这样以为。

历史究竟由谁书写?这批档案是对这⼀一问题进⾏行的⼀一次先发制⼈人的回应。家作坊这类空间始于⾃自我倡导,在其存在时它或只能游移于艺术界边缘——不管将来是否会被重新发现——但必然有为⾃自⼰己发声的必要,即便已息声了。

作为⼯工具,档案有助于回溯,但它永远都不可能囊括所有。这些物件⾃自不同领域和地⽅方搜集⽽而来,包括可⻅见的、物质制造出来的物品,⾛走失了或未被实现的物事,也包括它们之间动态的相互关系。我们希望,这些物件能够成为⼀一种激发潜能的器具,或有助于研究的案例,同时,提醒⼤大家留意历史化过程中那些迷失了的元素以及卷⼊入其中的⽭矛盾。

As part of 《我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat, HomeShop published its own catalogue in the form of a guidebook with numbered descriptions of all items included in the exhibited archive. The following prologue is entry number 1:

《我的负能量是你的正能量,or,或者,The Grin Without The Cat》
archive, 102 items of various sizes and media
2014

The choice not to participate in the group show Unlived by What is Seen could also have been valid, and was certainly honestly considered. Bringing the practices of HomeShop to the 798 art district brought up translation problems, with contextual sensitivity and criticality, and desires for autonomy being what held together an interdisciplinary mix of individuals. This most likely could not be reproduced in the art district, and certainly not posthumously.

In any case, the terms of the invitation seemed open enough, and signaled the challenges of what can be called a retrospective phase. We agreed this was of enough interest to work together, despite the dilemma of who and what we are—because we are not HomeShop.This particular group bound by what was, is not trying to be everything that was. And contrary to what some might have thought, this gathering isn’t in order to have a party!

This archive is a pre-emptive response to the question of who writes history. Especially in the case of self-initiated and discontinued projects that, like HomeShop, may have existed at the edges of an art scene—to be rediscovered later or not—there is a task to speak for oneself, despite the contradictory loss of voice.

An archive is a tool toward retrospection but can never be truly complete. Among those items gathered from across this and other worlds, this archive includes a range not only from what had been successfully produced in visible and material forms, but also that which may have gone wrong or was never realized, as well as the dynamics of their relations and mediations.We hope these function in part as potential tools or case studies for others, while calling to mind the missing elements and contradictions involved in any historicization.

Spring Cleaning swap meet on the 12th, we’ve invited the oldest family on our block to teach us how to update a Cultural Revolution old recipe for making candied fruits on sticks, the old Beijing sweet of choice. Experiment with various ball-shaped edibles, from the classic 山楂 hawthorn to the risky 狮子头 lion’s head minced meatball. Bring your leftovers from the fridge to tanghulu-ify, or trade for our finished pieces! All will be available for trade and bargaining along with all the other goodies on site.

 

传说_The legend of tanghulu
南宋绍熙年间,宋光宗最喜爱的皇贵妃病了,她面黄肌瘦,不思饮食。御医用了许多名贵药品,医治无果。宋光宗只好张榜招医。有一位江湖郎中揭榜进宫。为其诊脉 后,开出山楂和红糖。一起煮即食。每次3-5粒。半月黄贵妃病愈。后此法传入民间。酸、脆、香甜的沾山楂法流传至今。
During the splendid reign of the Southern Song dynasty, the favourite concubine of emperor SONG Guangzong fell ill and could not eat, making her emaciated and haggard. Imperial doctors tried all sorts of expensive cures to no avail, so SONG put forth an open call seeking medical help. One traveling doctor managed to enter the court to see the concubine, and after taking her pulse, he prescribed her a cure of hawthorn and brown sugar to be cooked together and eaten. Half a month later the concubine was healed, and ever since then, the recipe became a favourite of the people. Sour and crisp yet fragrantly sweet, this miracle method of preparing hawthorn has lasted until today.

宋氏家族介绍_About the SONG family
位于交道口北二条一号在解放前由宋氏人家小手工经营几年。公私合营后停业。80年代改革开放开始后,恢复经营。品种有大小山楂、山药、橘子、黑枣、香蕉等数多种。每日万余串送往故宫、王府井、东单、西单、前门等地。深受老北京市民欢迎喜爱。
Before the founding of the People’s Republic, the SONG family of Jiaodaokou Beiertiao 1 was already involved in a small homemade tanghulu workshop for several years. With private businesses suspended during the Cultural Revolution, they stopped until finally during the reform and opening-up of the 80s, the family business was able to be picked up again. During its peak, the SONG’s tanghulu (including hawthorn, Chinese yam, tangerine, smoked jujube, banana and many other varieties) satisfied the cravings of many old Beijingers and were delivered all over the city to locations such as the imperial palace, Wangfujing, Dongdan and Qianmen.
