《年轻革命者的肖像》
2013
行为,录像

《年轻革命者的肖像》是于2013年1月26日发生在英格兰Dungeness的一次行为纪录。
在此次表演中,我乔装并扮演了一个年轻革命者的角色,在该区域最冷的时节身着单衣在退潮的沙滩上站立长达一小时,手持的喇叭在循环播放着历史上学生运动中的实地录音。作为一个1989年生于中国北京的年轻人,我从未参与过任何“角色扮演”的行为,也从未有机会参与任何形式的学生运动。
由于恶劣的天气给我造成的生理痛苦,此次行为的纪录有种“意料之外的真实感”。

Portrait of a Young Revolutionarist
2013
performance, video stills

Portrait of a Young Revolutionarist is documentation of a performance conducted at the beach of Dungeness, England on 26th, January, 2013.
In my performance, I dressed up and played the role as a young revolutionist. I was standing on the beach with trace left by the waves for an hour during the coldest month of the year, the speaker in my hand was repeating the sound footages from various historical student movements.
As a young Chinese born in 1989 in Beijing, I’ve never done any ‘role-play’ before, nor did I have any chance to ever take part in any kinds of student movements in the past.
During the performance, because I was suffering from physical pains caused by the severe weather, the documentation of this performance seems “unexpectedly real”.
