《几近抵达,几近具体,重庆》
2014/2016
多媒介装置:数字微喷摄影、旧相册,档案,混合材料

在初到重庆之前,我在网上卖到一本60年代的重庆老相册,这本相册是某电信公司的内部档案,对其在重庆的办公大院以及员工宿舍进行了归档。相册共包含了近三百张照片,所有照片的主体都是建筑,档案的整理者在几乎每张照片下面都标注了相应的街名与街号。

这本整理于50年前的相册,自此成为了我在重庆的步行索引。我以照片下标注的街号作为线索,试图重访这些旧照的拍摄地点。很快我便意识到,这是一项不可能完成的搜寻——很多街道名称已经发生改变,而几乎所有照片上的建筑,都已消失不见。然而,我依旧前往了相册上所标注的目前依旧可以找到的26条街道,寻找相应的街号,并在周遭区域展开拍摄。与此同时,我的拍摄地点还包括其他两种类型的区域:第一类是在近代对重庆的建设起到重要作用的然而当下已经衰败或已成废墟的三座工厂(二钢厂,九龙电厂,江渝船厂),第二类是几座正在核心地段处于建设中的楼盘工地。

我的意图并非是以一种类型学的方式将过去与当下的图像进行对照,而是通过将拍摄于不同年代、出现在不同媒介(电视以及不同年代的报纸广告)、以及处于不同形态下(建设工地与废墟)的建筑图像进行并置,并在其中穿插与建筑相关的人物资料(肖像、调查文字以及档案资料),以此构建一系列能够彼此发生对话与关联的图像集群,如同一个万花筒的切面,或许映射出这座城市当下(并始终处于改变中)的构成。

Nearly There, Nearly Concrete, Chongqing
2014/2016
Multimedia installation: Digital prints, old photo album, archive, mixed media

Before arriving in Chongqing, I purchased an old photo album online from a second-hand bookseller. The album had almost 300 photos taken in Chongqing around the 1960s, all focused on architecture, with the street address of nearly every location written underneath.

This photo album, compiled 50 years ago, became the index for my wandering in Chongqing. I tried to revisit the places where these photos were taken, following the addresses marked in the album. Soon I realized it was a mission doomed for failure—many street names had changed, and nearly all the architecture from the photos was gone. However, I managed to visit 26 of the streets that still existed, taking photos of the surrounding areas and looking for the addresses listed. In addition, I visited two other types of locations for this project: one group comprised of factories that played an important role in Chongqing's recent development, but are currently abandoned or in disrepair (Chongqing Second Steel Factory, Chongqing Jiulong Electricity Factory and Jiangyu Ship Factory); the other category consists of several large construction sites in the city center.

I don’t intend to compare images of the past and present in a typological way. By juxtaposing images of architecture taken from different times, different media (television and newspaper advertisement from different times), in different forms (ruins or buildings under construction), and inserting images of people related to the architecture (portraits, interview excerpts and archival documents), this project produces a montage of imagery where new relations and dialogues form. I hope the pluralized relations and dialogues among these images can provide the structure of an invisible web, the transection of a kaleidoscope reflecting the current and continually changing composition of the city of Chongqing.
