A Splendid Web from Heaven to Earth is an installation of a giant web flowing delicately from ceiling to the floor. The stainless-steel-made web looks shimmering and inviting from afar. However, as one gets closer, what seems so still and peaceful a moment ago suddenly turns unsettling. The conflicting feeling is a metaphor of the chaos in today’s world. It poses a question to our being, a...   [more]

当李纲走进建筑废墟,他的立场并非凭吊式抒情,而是借助“残砖碎瓦”赋予水墨新的“隐喻”。理解这种“隐喻”,正是解读李纲新作的关键所在。如李格尔所说,建筑残存凝聚了人造物的“时间价值”。虽新建筑废墟看似时间不长,却也具备类似属性。并且,不同于古建残存观光式的怀古视角,它所释放的是祛除视觉幻景的废墟本身。将如此废墟与水墨联系起来,李纲试图传达怎样一种意图?很显然,水墨对李纲而言不再具备古建式的视觉幻景。什么是“视觉幻景”?正如观光客面对古建残存,他所看到的并非废墟本身,而是被各种话语包裹出的文化想象。于是,视觉显现的不再是视觉本身,而是想象性的文化景观。作为历史遗存的水墨,亦然。它时常成为今天的怀古观光对象——人们面对水墨的立场,通常会被一种文化想象所控制,使之沦为旅游胜地式的假想物。然而,古建残存脱离了它曾经的背景后,一切关乎历史的想象,都是浪漫主义的“幻境”,并非今日之真实。正如圆明园,在看似悲情的历史景观之后,更真实地显现为一种人造物重归自然的平静。亦如水墨,在笔墨、文人等相关词汇的笼罩下,“文化幻景”成为观看时的浪漫主义胶卷,将其作为艺术媒质之一的物性屏蔽,并最终成为陈旧的保留曲目。曾经浸染于此的李纲幡然警觉,试图通过抽象的方式告别“视觉幻景”的生成模式。在长达十数年的“胡闹”(李纲友人戏语)中,他的折叠、拓印与转印,被视作水墨领域中原典意义上的“抽象试验”——即平面与媒介两个方面的推进,并引发关注。固然,这种努力摆脱了人们惯常经验中的水墨想象,在形式主义的方式中激发了水墨平面媒材的自我表达。但80年代以来的“抽象水墨”,其诞生之日便背负了一种责任——在世界范围内的艺术逻辑中证明水墨价值。如果,我们将这种责任视作预设态度,那么“抽象水墨”天然便具有“反对历史文化想象”的另一重想象——告别古建后的摩天大楼的“视觉幻景”。由于这种“反对”的“二元对立”,使它并不能真正地、彻底地摆脱它所反对的文化想象,并因此呈现为古今交织的模糊话语。其结果,仿佛北京中关村的奇幻景观:古典废墟与摩天大楼混杂共存。而“抽象水墨”在学理层面上难以深入,亦因于此。就此而言,抽象水墨之后,实验水墨、行为水墨的提出,都试图从这一“视觉幻景”的笼罩中走出。走入现代建筑废墟的李纲,正是这一&l...   [more]
