> DESCRIPTION

《过滤》由刘任与张如怡的两个个展单元组成,他(她)们不约而同的在时间轴线上展开自己的意志力,通过理性化的渐进方式,将实践对象改造为一种过滤、承载情感介质的多孔性动力装置,从而讨论与输出各自的个体意识。

 

时间、生命是刘任艺术实践一贯的母题。他通过对材料、信息源的处理加工以实现自我与外部世界的连接。刘任的整个实践过程如同一个中转站:主观情感与客观存在在此相遇、发酵,或以一条“手工微博”的形式呈现,或内涵于极简的装置形态之中,工整的视觉形态背后隐藏的是可被层层剥离的感性累积。刘任,1983年出生于上海,2007年毕业于上海大学美术学院。现工作生活在上海。

 

张如怡以一种重复的、封闭的实践手段,理性的控制着情感表达。她的作品复原了在工业化为主的社会生态机制里,一个个体的存在状态,既表达了艺术家对价值体验的独立视角和立场,也提示出受当下庞大的外部环境压缩的个体意识空间。张如怡力所能及地将日常中的自己与都市生活系统的不协调进行转换,在体察中发现抵抗,用交流构筑封闭,在重复缓慢的实践过程中过滤所有由现实施加的情绪。张如怡,1985年出生于上海,2012年获得上海大学美术学院硕士学位。现工作生活在上海。

“Filtrate” consists of two solo exhibitions by Liu Ren and Zhang Ruyi who both spontaneously extend their willpower chronologically and, in a rationalized and progressive way, convert the objects of their practice into a porous power unit that filtrates and carries emotion media for the discussion and the output of their own  individual consciousness.  
Time and life always remains a motif for Liu Ren. He connects himself with the outside world while processing the material and the source of information. The whole process of his practice is like a transfer station, as the subjective feelings and the objective reality meet and ferment here, present themselves in the form of “a manual microblog”, or imply themselves in a minimalist installation- what is hidden behind the clear and neat visual state is emotional accumulation that can be stripped layer by layer. Born in Shanghai in 1983, Liu Ren graduated in 2007 from College of Fine Arts, Shanghai University. Currently lives and works in Shanghai.
Zhang Ruyi takes control of her expression of emotions in a repetitive and closed way. Her works restore individuals’ state of being in the industrialized social ecology and mechanism, revealing her independent perspective and stand toward the experiential value as an artist, and prompting the individual consciousness under the pressure of the enormous external environment. As her capacity allows, she switches her daily life with the discordance of the urban life, detecting resistance by means of experience and observation, building enclosure in communication, and filtrate all the sentiments imposed by reality in the repetitive and slow practice. Born in Shanghai in 1985, Zhang Ruyi graduated with a Master’s degree from College of Fine Arts, Shanghai University, in 2012. Currently lives and works in Shanghai.
