青年与世界

The young and the world

Chen Kuangdi



青年艺术家身处创作的转型时期:既已告别学习的岁月,又已进入创作的年代。“创作!”这个律令驱动着他们,促使他们必须对世界——不仅外部世界,也是内心世界——保持开放的态度。青年艺术家尽可放眼世界,纵观古今,从纷繁复杂的视界中汲取养分,获得灵感,启动创作,但在此过程中,他们最好能一边持续地告别过去,一边持续地拥抱着这个世界中新鲜发生的一切。

Young artists are going through transformation in their careers: they have bid farewell to their student lives, and started to produce works of art on their own. Be creative! is an order for artists to obey, and this order drives them forward by pushing them to open their hearts to the world. They are expected to take a broad-scope look at the world and the history, in an attempt to draw inspiration from whatever they see, and turn their inspiration into action. In this process, theyd better keep moving on from the old and embracing anything new in this world.

 

本次参展的作品让我们看到青年艺术家在艺术资源选取上的开阔视野:不管是偏向当代的艺术样式,还是倾向传统的艺术形式,统统被青年艺术家加以借鉴利用。艺术处理的主题上也更加多样:既面向自己的内心,处理自己的思考和情绪,也面向广阔的世界,观察和诊断这个世界中的问题。在艺术倾向上,他们有取形式或唯美路线,在艺术中表达对美的追求和向往,也有取干涉或介入路线,将艺术用作对生活的听诊器或手术刀。

The works at this exhibition show that these young artists tend to select a wide range of artistic resources: they take adavantage of both contemporary art forms and traditional ones. In addition, these young artists are dealing with a variety of themes in art: they not only deal with their own thoughts and feelings in their inner world, but also observe and analyze the problems found in the outside world. In terms of artistic inclination, some of the artists prefer aestheticism, so they love and pursue beauty in their works; while others are fonder of intervention, using art as a “stethoscope” or a scalpel to examine the life.


多样的出发点和各异的转化方式,使本次参展的作品呈现出多样面貌。当然,多样性本身并不天然地具有价值,但它标示着参展青年艺术家在艺术探索的道路上,不被任何陈规或惯例所束缚的状态。他们各自在艺术之路上行走,有的一往向前,有的犹豫踌躇,有的思索缜密,有的意绪挥洒。不需要统一的号令,也没有确定的阵型,他们只是四散开来,在世界中行走。这持续的行走,或许正是青年艺术家进入世界的前提。

   Such variety in the artists creation contributes to the diversity of the works at this exhibition. It is certain that diversity doesnt naturally have values, but it does demonstrate how the participating young artists are not fettered by stereotypes or conventions as they explore the art. Among them, some are determined, others are hesitant; some care much about details, others just let go of their mind. These artists dont need command; nor do they act in formation. Each and every of them explores the art in their own way, and this might be exactly a precondition for them to enter the world of art.
