杨圆圆,《大连幻景》
2017-进行中

《大连幻景: 1-3章》, 2017,单通道录像(表演录制),41分9秒(观看3分20秒剪辑版

Dalian Mirage: Chapter 1-3, 2017, Single-channel video (performance recordin), 41min09sec (excerpt 3min20sec)

1899年8月,大连在沙俄统治时期建市,城市最早的街道也是建于那一年代。日俄战争后,在长达40年(1905-1945)的时间里,大连为日本殖民地。

杨圆圆的项目《大连幻景》以大连近代史为背景,在展览与书两种媒介中,以图像与文本互文的形式勾勒一场以城市为舞台背景的“戏剧”,以港口、楼梯、广场、旅舍、街道与剧场等城市空间作为索引,划分为一部“六幕剧本”。作品叙事的构建在对真实史料的引用基础上融合了大量虚构。来自不同年代的多个角色的声音贯穿其中:日殖时期出生在大连的日本作家,来旅行的日本游客,与同时期闯关东的中国劳工;解放后在中国的日本遗孤;当下生活在老街上恋旧的本地人,拿着老地图在大连漫游的旅客等等。项目意图围绕多个话题展开探讨:战争与殖民史的复杂性,历史书写的真实与虚构,城市空间在不同时期其功能与属性的转变等等。在《大连幻景》中,城市的时空边界变得模糊,在多个异乡人如梦幻泡影般的独白中,隐隐回荡着一个跨越百年的无解疑问——“何为故乡?”

Dalian Mirage
2017-ongoing

In August 1899, while Dalian, then Dalny, was under the control of the Russian Empire, the city’s earliest streets were paved. After the Russo-Japanese War, and throughout the 40 years that followed (1905-1945), Dalian was under Japanese rule.

With Dalian’s history as its background, Dalian Mirage is presented in the varied forms of an artist book and an exhibition. Interweaving image and text into a “theatre play” set in the city, each chapter of the“6-act play” references a distinct urban space, including harbor, staircase, square, hotel, street and theatre. The narrative is a mixture of fictional and factual materials, where voices of various figures from different eras——a Japanese writer who was born in Dalian, a Japanese traveler and a Chinese worker from Shandong Province during the time of Japanese rule; a Japanese orphan after the time of liberation; a local Dalianer who currently lives on the old street and a Chinese person travels in Dalian with an old map——echo throughout. The project aims to explore a wide range of issues: the complexity of colonial history, the truths and fabrications in how history is written, and evolving functions and attributions of urban spaces across time. By answering these questions, the project blurs the spatio-temporal boundaries of the city. Among the fragmented monologues of various “foreigners”, there is an unfathomable question that echoes throughout a hundred year – “What is ‘home’? ”
