《秘语》Whisper, 影像作品 Video, 7"09', 2019



《秘语》展示了“魔法”呈现的过程。“秘语”作为一种不公开的交流方式,暗藏在社会关系中,它像一把打开“真实世界”的钥匙藏在每个人的口袋里却不被发现。艺术家就是发现这把魔法钥匙的人,就像电影《潜行者》中的潜行者,带你寻找钥匙,不会启动雨刮器为你清晰未来。



"Whisper" shows the presentation of "magic". As a private means of communication, "whisper" is hidden in social relationships, it's like a key to the real world and hidden in everyone's pocket. The artist is the one who found this magic key, just like the stalker in the movie "Stalker",he takes you to find the key and will not activate the wiper to let you see the journey ahead clearly.

《新喜剧之王》The New King of Comedy, 影像作品 Video, 9"24', 2019



《新喜剧之王》是一场图像时代的溯源,从卓别林到罗伯特德尼罗到周星驰,他们用自己的表演来诠释真实的喜剧,正如喜剧的内核是悲剧。当下从抖音到快手的全民表演,真正的无厘头是我们的生活,真正的喜剧之王其实是我自己,我们将自己塑造成一个个“周星驰”,被施了“魔法”的英雄,从苦难到苦难,就像人生如梦。



"The New King of Comedy" is a trace of the era of images. From Chaplin to Robert De Niro to Stephen Chow, they all use their own performances to interpret true comedy, just as the core of comedy is tragedy. In the current  performances on Douyin and Kuaishou, we can see that the real nonsense is our life, and the real king of comedy is actually ourselves. We shape ourselves into "Stephen Chow", a hero who has been "magic". From suffering to suffering, just like life is like a dream.

Solaris, 影像作品 Video, 28"17', 2019



Solaris灵感来源于波兰作家斯坦尼斯拉夫·莱姆创作的长篇科幻小说《索拉里斯星》,艺术家对其进行重新编写展示一段去索拉里斯星寻找“真实”的旅程。旅程中呈现了“现实“—”真实”的过程。艺术家用“魔法”将现实世界和真实世界联系起来。这场穿越时空的“旅程”其实是艺术家对现实世界的逃逸。超验后的真实与现实相互叠加,亦幻亦实,构成奇妙之旅。



Solaris was inspired by the long-form science fiction novel Solaris by Polish writer Stanislaw Lem. The artist shows us a journey to Solaris to find "truth". This is a process from "reality" to "truth". Artist uses "magic" to connect the real world with the true world. This "journey" through time and space is the artist's escape from the real world. The truth and reality superimpose each other after transcendent , they constitute a wonderful journey.

关于艺术家 丨About Artist






艺术家丨夏天

Artist丨Xia Tian


夏天,1982年出生于安徽合肥,现工作生活于安徽。近年来,夏天的工作转向图像时代下个体经验研究的路径,利用注释、重写、编辑剪辑等方式去解读现实境况,艺术家认为个人经验重新整理书写是认识世界的重要方法,也是呈现艺术魔法的必要手段。艺术家运用影像、装置并综合写作等方式搭建“真实”的世界。同时与熊言钧、尹昌志两位艺术家一同发起路径项目,以多种方式介入不同空间,展开对艺术在今日现实中的路径测绘和行动预演。他曾参与在中央美术学院美术馆、今日美术馆、南京艺术学院美术馆、金鹰当代艺术空间的展览。



Xia Tian, born in Hefei, Anhui in 1982, currently lives and works in Anhui. In recent years, Xia's work has turned to the path of individual empirical research in the era of images, using annotation, rewriting, and editing to interpret the real situation. The artist believes that reorganizing and writing based on personal experience is an important way to understand the world and also a necessary means to present artistic magic. Artists use images, installations, and writing to build a "true" world. At the same time, he launched a path project with Xiong Yanjun and Yin Changzhi,  intervened in different spaces in various ways, and started the path mapping and action preview of art in today's reality. He has participated in exhibitions at the Art Museum of Central Academy of Fine Arts, Today Art Museum,  Art Museum of Nanjing University of the Arts, and Golden Eagle Contemporary Art Center.
