杨锋艺术与教育基金会上海新空间“留下空间”,将于2017年12月12日下午三点开幕。留下空间,是杨锋艺术与教育基金会(简称”基金会”)设立的第三个非营利艺术空间。位于上海历史悠久的(前)法租界,由老洋房改建的留下空间,为上海以及周边地区建立艺术发声地。开幕首展邀请年轻策展人汪单、姜俊共同策划旅美艺术家沈凌昊个展——“当幕布拉起,我们的对话早已完结——留光显影”。

展名“留”源于留下空间的名字,“留光”刚好也配合此次展览中艺术家所使用摄影媒介,以及对“感光”材料的运用。“留光现象”指强光离开感光物后的延迟光影的现象,此次展览的主作品“剩余物-留光”便试图通过视觉和观念来呈现记忆“留光”后的“追忆”。然而,在展览开始后,“我们”的对话真的完结了吗?“留光显影”以追忆的方式试图开启新的讨论。

“完结”和“显影”不仅构成了一种留白式的停顿,更多的是激起多维共振。艺术家个案式的展览只会是一个起点,随后基于展览而发的多个学者讨论、工作坊、写作和现场表演等“事件”将重新构建“留下”空间,使得历史文脉与当下城市空间发展共同聚焦于此。当下当代艺术的剧场化是显而易见的现象,展览开幕和所有的大戏开幕一样,一切工作必须各就各位,完成之前的协商和对话,指向个展艺术家沈凌昊所选择的概念“留光显影”。在多个意象(论坛、雅集、治园、剧场)中,艺术家和策展人以“剧场”——“幕布拉起”形象地影射了“留下空间”的亮相。

“当幕布拉起,我们的对话早已完结——留光显影” 系列活动

12月13日 下午3点至4点

讲座一:缓存魔都:法租界生活日常

缓存,指的是硬件读取数据时首先查找的数据交换区,然而缓存的储存时间有限,经常被清空而不作永久保存,可以说是数据记忆的一种“剩余”。上海作为中国现代都市的起源,在某种程度上可以说是一种历史的缓存,市民的日常生活被湮没在历史档案文献当中,变成了当今上海市民对都市文化主体认同的一种潜意识。我们挖掘这段缓存,清理出一些有意思的日常历史现场,描绘重新解读和审视这段集体经验的小径。

讲者:路坦,同济大学哲学博士,公派留学在法国巴黎第八大学从事法国哲学与历史研究,现为同济大学建筑系博士后。

主持人:姜俊

特邀嘉宾:刘化童,诗人,专栏作家,以笔名写诗,以真名批评,从事文化及当代艺术批评写作。著有诗集《往世书》,现为《典藏·今艺术》主编。

Spare Space, the Third Space of Frank F. Yang Art and Education Foundation, Grand Opening Exhibition——All Said and Done Before the Fat Lady Sings: Developed from Spare Particles

Spare Space is the third in a series of non-profit art spaces setup by the Frank. Yang Art and Education Foundation(hereupon referred to as"the foundation") Located in a converted, foreign-style dwelling in Shanghai’s historical French Concession, Spare Space is the first artistically galvanizing space to be built in Shanghai and the surrounding area. For this exhibition’s opening, curators Wang Dan and Jiang Jun were invited to jointly curate a solo show of U.S.-based artist Shen Linghao, entitled All Said and Done Before the Fat Lady Sings – Developed from Spare Particles.

The term “spare” in the title stems from the name of the exhibition space. In turn, the term “spare particles” coincides with the artist’s use of photography as a medium for this exhibition, as well as his use of “photosensitive” materials. The phenomenon of “spare particles” refers to the faint light left lagging on a photosensitive object after the disappearance of a brighter one. The main work in the exhibition – Remnant: Spare Particles – attempts to visually and notionally present the act of “recollection” that takes place in the wake of memory’s “residual light”. Still, does “our” conversation really come to an end after the start of the exhibition? By means of recollection, Developed from Spare Particles attempts to open up a new discussion.

“Completion” and “(image) development” not only constitute a standstill, redolent of space left blank; more so, they evoke a multi-dimensional resonance. Showcasing individual artist-cases, this exhibition is only a starting point. Next, discussions held by various scholars, workshops, publications, live performances and other “incidents” based on the exhibition will help reconstruct the “spare” space, which in turn serves as a focal point for the convergence of historical context and the development of the immediate urban space.

It’s evident that theatricality prevails in contemporary art nowadays. The unveiling of an exhibition is no different from raising the curtain on a full-fledged drama, in which the various tasks require all actors to man their posts. Previous negotiations and conversations have prompted artist Shen Linghao to choose Developed from Spare Particles the underpinning concept of his solo show. In a number of images (e.g. the forum, the literati gathering, the harnessed garden, the theater), the artist and the curators use the tropes of “theater” and “curtain-raising” to vividly hint at the appearance of a “spare space”.
