“I Will Die”, Yang Zhenzhong’s 20 year ongoing video project be part of Tatjana Gürbaca’s production of Aribert Reimann’s latest opera “The Invisible” at the Staatstheater Braunschweig. On screens in the foyer and on stage, people from all over the world, no matter what language, belief, or nationality will be seen saying the truth: I will die.In Braunschweig Yang Zhenzhong also be creating a new chapter of IWD with the singers/actors of the opera who was speak or sing the words “I will die” in their native languages, such as English, Hebrew, Chinese, Korean, German, Serbian and Ukrainian etc.


2018年泰国双年展,在泰国甲米。杨振中在当地挑了10棵榕树,都完整地连根挖起,然后将它们倒立,树冠种回地里。
几个月后,10棵树有8棵长出新芽成活。


作品坐落在泰国甲米岛孔卡码头(Kong Ka Pier, Krabi)步道边的草坪上。

Thailand Biennale 2018, in Krabi, Thailand. Yang Zhenzhong picked 10 banyan trees in the area, all dug up intact with their roots, and then planted them upside down with their crowns back in the ground.
A few months later, 8 out of 10 trees had sprouted new shoots and were alive.
Located on the lawn beside the pathway of Kong Ka Pier, Krabi.

从网络收集半年以来海量的各种官媒主流新闻、自媒体新闻、公众号文章、八卦传言、谣言和辟谣、小道消息和大路报道,保留他们原有的图文并茂的形态,拼贴在一起制成不重复的墙纸。贴满公寓里所有的房间、过道、门厅的墙面每个角落(不包括现有的门窗、橱柜)。
我们这些被手机和网络控制的人,这半年来经历了什么?现实远远比艺术更强大、更刺激、更复杂、更引人入胜和荒诞。这些现实拼贴成的纹样,既可以作为这套特殊的公寓内部的装饰背景墙,也值得观众花点时间细细阅读和讨论。

The project begins with collecting a large number of mainstream media news, self-media news, articles from public blogs, sensational stories, gossips, rumors and refutations, from the internet over a period of half year. The collected items will then be collaged into a wallpaper with non-repetitive motives, retaining their original graphic forms. The wallpaper covers the wall of all the rooms, aisles, every corner of the foyer in the apartment.
For those of us virtually controlled by the network and mobile phone, what have we experienced in the past six months? Reality is far more powerful, more exciting, more complex, more fascinating and absurd than art. These realistic collages can serve simultaneously as a decorative wall for the interior of this specific apartment and a background wall that is worth the time of the viewers to read and discuss.

静物与风景
Still life & Landscape


2017-2018



特定空间装置
杨振中用一堵与周边同样颜色单调的墙和一扇铁栅栏窗替代了原本的玻璃推拉门。窗户的大小和高低很容易让人联想到普通民居的门窗,然而站在街头的观看者在其中看到的不是家庭场景而是纵向铁栅栏后一面双面镜中的自己。在玩弄内外对立的二分法中,笼窗提供了一种不明确的表述,即哪一面是栅栏之内而哪一面又是栅栏之外?杨暗中在双面镜后安装了一个监视器,进一步指向了我们的自我痴迷和被监视下的状态。在整个展览过程中,路人不明就里的情况下,监视器将记录日日夜夜里的一切举动,并显示在隔壁的咖啡馆中。因此,观看者不被监视的话就无法看到这件作品。这种观看体验——从自我到自己的镜像到作为“偷窥者”的监视器,编织出一个错综复杂的“眼网”,使所有人都同时是观看者又是被观看之物,谨慎地看与被看。

Site-specific Installation
Yang has replaced Arrow Factory’s original glass façade with a stark wall and barred fenestration. The size and placement of the window is reminiscent of residential dwellings, however instead of a domestic scene within, the view through the vertical bars features a two-way mirror confronting visitors with their own reflected image. Toying with dichotomies of inside versus outside, the caged window provides an ambiguous statement as to which side of the barrier is the interior and which is the exterior. Yang further addresses our selfie-obsessed and surveillance-engulfed condition by surreptitiously mounting a security camera behind the two-way mirror. Undetectable to passersby, the camera records all movements day and night over the course of the exhibition. The live footage is recorded and displayed on a monitor housed inside a neighboring café. As a result, it is impossible to view the work without it secretly watching you back. This layering of the viewing experience—from the self to the self-reflected to the camera as voyeur—spins an intricate web of eyes, turning all into simultaneous viewers and subjects, cagily watching and being watched.

在本次展出的作品中,阴影从概念到结构,从叙事到虚构,从物质到存在,以无数不同的形态显示。首先看到的是杨振中的巨大户外雕塑装置《完美的几何形》(2016),探索之旅以一种暧昧的方式开始。作品一半在水中,正反面的比例为标题中的五星讲述了全然不同的故事。作品正面,通过在下半部分使用镜子,展示了一个五角星的完整形状,从而制造出一种完整性的幻想。然而一旦观看者移动到了作品后面,却分明看到这块腐烂的巨大雕塑已然坠落,完整性被它的瓦解状态所打破了。如同大多数的真相,事实就呈现在面前,线索就摆在那里等待被发现。我们需要做的,就是能够看清。
——凯伦 史密斯:“充满光亮的影中世界”,“真实的假象” P288, 2016

杨振中通过打造视觉游戏鼓励观者去探索更全面或更有意义的图像,并且以不同的视角来看待周围事物。他对“影子”的探讨,或更加确切地说,对“镜影”的探讨,呈现为在美术馆的入口处的一个“纪念碑”。这是为此次展览度身定制的唯一一件户外作品。这件新的雕塑简单地采用一块铁片做成五角星的形状。实际上,从正面来看,它只是半个星形,而通过与不锈钢底座反射的镜像才组合构成一个整体。这里的镜像如同其实体的钢铁材料一样坚固可靠,又拥有如星星般的灵性;它支撑着那个沉重的实体,它的尖角在镜面反射中指向一个无限的天空。

——姜节泓:“真实的假象” P59, 2016

340×480x600cm

In the works that have been selected for this exhibition, shadows are manifest in myriad form from concept and construct, to narrative and fiction, material and substance. The exploration begins in an obtuse way with Yang zhenzhong’s massive Fallen Five Star (The Perfect Pentagram),an exterior sculptural installation, part submerged in water, where the front and back portions tell a very different story of the titular star. From the front of the work the full form of the five-point star is invoked by means of mirror plates on the lower half of the facade. This creates an illusion of wholeness which is undone once the viewer moves around to the back side, where the state of disintegration into which this rusting monolith has fallen, is fully revealed. As with most truths, the facts are present before us, the clues there to be read. All that is required is that in looking we are able to see clearly.
_ Karen Smith:”World of Shadow Teeming with Brilliance”,  “The Shadow never Lies” p281, 2016

Yang Zhenzhong (p 247-249), too, creates visual games, which encourage viewers to explore a fuller or more meaningful image and to look at things around them differently. He approaches the issue of the shadow, or precisely the specular image, through building a ‘monument’ right at front of the museum entrance, the only outdoor work of this exhibition. This new sculptural piece, simply features an iron sheet in the shape of a star. In fact, it is only a half star, which reflected in its stainless steel base forms a complete image of a star. The specular is as strong, reliable as iron, and as spiritual as the star, lifting the heavy material and pointing into the infinity of a reflected sky.
_ Jiang Jiehong: “The Shadow never Lies” p34, 2016

“伪装”在创作过程中3D扫描了50个工人的脸,再3D打印成面具戴在每个工人自己的脸上。拍摄时,员工们头戴面具在车间工作。他们的行动被记录下来并制成影像作品。
这些面具复制了佩戴者的脸,与其说它们遮盖了表情,不如说他们夸张了表情。即使工人们在流水线上只是按照要求行动,他们机械般的动作施展却也像自由的缓慢舞步。工厂仍旧保持着正常生产的氛围,但也正在转变为一个神秘的地方。


5 channel video installation
Before shooting the video work “Disguise”, 50 staff’s facial masks were printed after scanned by a 3D printing machine. Then those 50 people were asked to wear masks which accurately outline their facial appearances and performed the routine work in the factory. Their behaviour during working in the factory is recorded then made into a multi-channel video installation.
Exact duplicates of each face that they wear, these masks dramatise rather than veile motion. Even as they move according to the demands of the assembly line, the mechanical movements of workers unfurl like a slow dance of liberation. The factory still has an atmosphere of regular production, but it is transforming into a mysterious place.

这3件”海报”作品是大量当月报纸信息的拼贴,很多关键字眼用红笔圈记出来。海报的标语分别是:“我们消灭这些词”、“我们不认识这些词”。如果我们被灌输的概念中的共产主义实现了,这些被圈中的概念我们就不应该认识或者不应该存在。

首次展览于“我的共产主义”海报展(上海桃浦当代艺术中心)


Poster
200X180cm x3

The three “posters” by YANG Zhenzhong are collages carrying a large number of newspaper information of the very month when the works were produced, while many key words were circled in red. The “slogans” on the “posters” include: “We eliminate these words”, “We don’t know these words” and in English “WE DON’T KNOW THESE WORDS”. If communism as we were taught were realized, we simply wouldn’t know the concept of these circled words. Nor would it even exist at all.

The work was first displayed in “My Communism” Poster Exhibition, TOP Creative Park,Shanghai, China.
