一个茶壶,因为过时而被丢弃。

一个艺术家把它捡来,不小心又把盖儿上的把手摔掉了。于是他用一个废旧的锥子把按在盖儿上做把手,之后又不断在锥子把上放上他的新展品…
这次他从一个人正在读的一本书中剪下来最重要的部分,这部分来自读者认为最重要的几页书,剪下来的部分呈自然的树叶形,很好看…,
这部分读者还没看,等他读到这部分的时候,他会到那个被丢弃的茶壶上的那个被丢弃的锥子把上去找那新长出来的几片新树叶…
孔子云:“何陋之有?”

A teapot was abandoned for being out of fashion. An artist adopted it but broke the knob on its lid. He replaced it with the handle of a disused awl, which formed a stage of continuous, temporary displays…
In this 5th edition, a reader was invited to select a book he had just started. The reader found a section he hadn’t read, but that he believed to be important, and cut it out to display on the teapot.

Upon seeing the result, the reader said: “They look like leaves in nature, very nice…”

When he reaches this section, the reader will find the newly grown leaves on the top of a disused awl handle on the top of the abandoned teapot.

Confucius once said: “How could we call a room humble as long as there is a virtuous and wise man in it?”

“BAREBJ” forms the triangle of Buenos Aires, REykavik and BeiJing and the title of a recent showing at Espacio Formosa in Buenos Aires, where our friends in the barrio of Nuñez have remixed the winter soundwalk made by 谢婷婷 Hailey and i.

Experimental Geography
A traveling exhibition organized by iCI, New York
Touring September 2008 through August 2010
Curated by Nato Thompson

iCI announces the tour of Experimental Geography, an exhibition that explores the distinctions between geographical study and artistic experience of the earth, as well as the juncture where the two realms collide and possibly make a new field altogether. The exhibition presents a panoptic view of this new practice through a wide range of mediums including interactive computer units, sound and video installations, photography, sculpture, and experimental cartography created by 18 artists or artist teams from six countries.

Experimental Geography, curated by Nato Thompson and organized and circulated by iCI, will premiere at the Richard E. Peeler Art Center, DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana, on September 19 where it will be on view through December 12, 2008. The exhibition will travel through August 2010 with presentations at the Rochester Art Center, Rochester, Minnesota, February 7 – April 18, 2009; The Albuquerque Museum, Albuquerque, New Mexico, June 28 – September 20, 2009; and the Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine, February 21 – May 30, 2010. Additional venues will be announced.

Geography can involve the study of specific histories, sites, and memories. Every estuary, landfill, and cul-de-sac has a story to tell. The task of the geographer is to alert us to what is directly in front of us, while the task of the experimental geographer—an amalgam of scientist, artist, and explorer——is to do so in a manner that deploys aesthetics, ambiguity, poetry, and a dash of empiricism.

The manifestations of “experimental geography” (a term coined by geographer Trevor Paglen in 2002) run the gamut of contemporary art practice: sewn cloth cities that spill out of suitcases, bus tours through water treatment centers, performers climbing up the sides of buildings, and sound art of the breaths exhaled in running the evacuation route of Boston. In the hands of contemporary artists, the study of humanity’s engagement with the earth’s topography becomes a riddle best solved in experimental fashion.

The approaches used by the artists featured in Experimental Geography range from a poetic conflation of humanity and the earth to more empirical studies of our planet. Ilana Halperin melds immediate physical and personal actions with geologic contexts; she offers poetic conflations of differing fields of interest. Creating projects that are more empirically minded, the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), a research organization, explores the nature and extent of human interaction with the earth’s surface, embracing a multidisciplinary approach to fulfilling its mission. Using skill sets culled from the toolbox of geography, the work re-familiarizes the viewer with the overlooked American landscape including man-made islands, submerged cities, traffic in Los Angeles, and the broadcast antennas in the San Gabriel Mountains, and other details drawn from everyday experience.

Yin Xiuzhen (just saw images of her work from a fair in Berlin, and then one sculpture at the Shanghai Art Fair, which I wouldn’t have imagined as being relevant to this show but the piece in Berlin had a very nice idea of the building up of space by means of production and labour in a clothing factory-like setting)
