Proposal (text sent by the artist)*:

“Materials: 2 salvers, 5 color pallet, various color, painting brushes, 5 containers in different shapes and textures.

The whole process will be divided into 5 sections:

Section 1: Preparing (20 mins)

I will arrange the space, and prepare the chinas and painting colors.

When I finished preparing those materials, I will transcribe a section of apologizing video. (Use it in the last section).

Section 2: Creation (50 mins)

I will invite 5 audiences to make creation on the chinas with materials I provide, and tell them that their works will be remained to be displayed, and courage them while they do the creations, create the free atmosphere, let the process be totally observable, in order to increase 5 “artists’ ” passion.

Section 3: On show (15 mins)

Invite many audiences into the show, and communicate with 5 “artists” about 5 works of art, push the atmosphere higher.

After this section I will let 5 “artists” to leave in the excuse of “arranging the space”, tell them to turn back after 15 minutes.

Section 4: Broken

When 5 “artists” leave, artists will break all the chinas, let the fragments spread on the ground, shoot the moments of art works broken.

Section 5: Record the temperature of emotions (15 mins)

When 5 audiences back to the display space, what will be waiting is fragments on the ground, and the screen plays the process I break them. The reactions of 5 audiences may be sad, may be angry, may be peace, at this time camera will transcribe their reactions and expressions. After destruction video played, play the apologizing video. During all this I will hide in the corner and watch it happen, and then I will appear and explain all this to audiences face to face. And thank for their participations.

This scheme is for making people feel the passions and emotions when artists do their works, this temperature is not only in physics but also emotional, mentally. When those emotions, minds, thoughts to be broken, it won’t mean a thing to usual people, but a great shock to those people who spent time on it. Different attitudes to this mean different “temperatures” too. During this process will let people find the values of objects again. Otherwise, our thinking will not stop here, because people have various moods. My thought is to extrude the different feelings and attitudes about objects, in order to make more thinking about this.”

《温度》

需要的材料:盆子两个。调色板5 个。各色颜料若干。画笔若干。

不同造型和质感的素器5 个。

整个流程分为三个阶段:

阶段一:准备阶段(20 分钟)

艺术家将空间布置好,再将瓷器以及绘画材料准备好待用。

布置好后艺术家提前录制好道歉视频(在最后一阶段用)。

阶段二:创作阶段(50 分钟)

艺术家邀请五位观众用提供的材料在瓷器上进行自我创作,并告知他

们完成的艺术品会留在场地进行展出,并在观众创作的过程中不断鼓

励他们,渲染气氛和情绪,让他们感受到自己就是一个艺术家,期间

允许其他观众参观,增加五位“艺术家”的激情。

阶段三:展出阶段(20 分钟)

招揽大量观众入场,与五位艺术家观众交流其创作的作品,将氛围进

一步推高。此阶段结束后借口整理展示空间为借口将五位观众艺术家

支开,并告知他们15 分钟后回来。

阶段四:“毁灭”(15 分钟)

待观众艺术家们走后,艺术家将瓷器全部打破,任碎片散落一地,并

拍摄下艺术品破碎的瞬间。

阶段五:记录情感的温度(15 分钟)

五位观众艺术家回到展示空间之后,等待他们的是碎落一地的艺术品

还有播放着的艺术家砸碎它们的全程视频记录,观众艺术家们的反应

也许有的伤感、有的愤怒、有的无感,此时摄像机需要的就是记录下

他们当时的反应以及表情。在破坏视频结束之后,再播放出艺术家的

道歉视频,此时躲在角落观察一切的艺术家走出来与观众面对面解释

及道歉并感谢他们的参与。

此方案的用意在于让观众身临其境的感受到艺术家在制作一件艺术

品的时候所倾注的情感,此时的温度已不是物理意义上而是情感、精

神层面上的意义,在这一切情感、心思、精神、荣誉都被无情打破的

时候对于普通人来说可能没什么,可对于花过心思对待过这些艺术品

的人来说也许是沉重一击。不同人对此事不同的态度也代表着温度的

高低不同。这个过程一方面可以让大家重拾对器物的珍视,但是人有

不同情绪,思考并不止于此。本方案的主要目的是通过把人对器物不

同的感受和态度放大从而引起更多人的思考。
