> DESCRIPTION

我们很荣幸的宣布刘辛夷的首次个展“探员L”将在2012年6月23日开幕, 将展出他过去两年中的装置和影像作品。

如果说政治家的工作是尽力清理出纷乱现象中的头绪,从而给我们提供一个清晰明了的世界,那么,艺术家或许该去干点别的。出于对话语引导机制的好奇心,刘辛夷的注意力集中在当代条件下对政治体验的观察。他的工作包括采集多种形式的政治知识,混编它们的逻辑,并为之设计奇异的语境,将已不被怀疑的知识再造为体会这个世界的新途径。他近期的项目延续了他的调查方式,以他颇具幽默感的视角,探索觉悟和荒谬之间的的柔软地带。

刘辛夷1982年出生于杭州,2007年毕业于中国美术学院,2010年获得伦敦Goldsmiths学院的硕士学位。现生活和工作在杭州。

 

WHITE SPACE BEIJING is pleased to announce “Agent L”, the first solo exhibition of Liu Xinyi opens on June 23rd, 2012, will present his recent installation and video works in the past two years.

If the task of politicians could be to clean up the chaos phenomena in clue, and thus offer a clear view of the world to us, then, artist perhaps should do something else. For the curiosity to the guiding mechanism of public discourse, Xinyi creates works that focuses on observing political experience in the contemporary condition. His tasks include collecting various forms of political knowledge, mixing their logic, combining peculiar contexts, which aims to have those undoubted facts transformed into new perceptions of seeing the world. His recent projects continue a line of his investigation into political comprehension. With good sense of humor in choosing perspective, the artist explores the ambiguous boundaries in-between consciousness and absurd.

Born in 1982 in Hangzhou, Liu Xinyi had his BA in China Academy of Art, Hangzhou in 2007 and graduated from Goldsmiths College, London with MFA. He currently lives and works in Hangzhou.
