前言
 
E=hv
在这个展览中,我们偷换了概念:E(光),h=human(人类),v=vision(视觉)。
 
自远古文明以来,光、生命与空间一直在共生,变化和相互影响。
 
光能够反映生命每时每刻的变化。没有光,我们将置身于黑暗;没有光,我们无法意识时间的流逝;没有光,我们看不清眼前的事物。
 
在宗教艺术和古代建筑中,对于光的神圣感的表现是一个不可磨灭的主题。英国史前巨石阵、埃及金字塔,玛雅文明和墨西哥阿兹特克文明,他们的文化结构和宗教仪式中,这种对光的崇拜的概念和情况都有存在过的痕迹。因为,人类需要找到一种方法来敬畏他们所相信的来自神的力量。而光,具有特别的物质性,能将生命通过某种方式,联系在一起,超越有限的空间,去触碰未知的领域。
 
从过去的几十年直到现在,不断有当代艺术家在他们的作品中,探索如何使用光作为一种媒介,与不同的空间相融合去创造一个有独特气氛的环境。 在我个人看来,这个由艺术家所创造出来的空间,更像是一个古代具有崇拜色彩空间的延伸,在这个属于光和生命的空间里,观众不仅能感受到光的力量,而且能够专注的冥想,静心的探索以及身临其境的去感受生命与光的联系。如,James Turrell(詹姆斯·特瑞尔)的The Roden Crater Project项目,Nancy Holt(南希·霍尔特)的Sun Tunnels项目和Olafur Eliasson(奥拉维尔·埃利亚松)的The Weather Project项目。
 
在5Art Space的这个项目中,我尝试用光制造不同的空间,带领观众在日常之外感受光与他们自身的联系。

Artist Statement
 
In this exhibition, we use a new perspective to explain the concept: E(light), h=human, v=vision.
 
Light, life and space have been involved together for millennium since ancient civilizations.
 
Light reflects life is changing. Without light, we would be in darkness; without light, we would not realize time is passing away, without light, we would not see anything clearly.
 
The sanctity of light is one of the most ancient and persistent themes within sacred art and architecture – a concept associated with the cultural structure and the religious ritual of Stonehenge, the Egyptian pyramids, and Mayan as well as Aztec civilizations. Human being needs to find a way to worship the power that they believe coming from their gods. And light has a particular materiality, in connecting life to the touch of an unknown field.
 
During past decades up until now, contemporary artists have used and are using light as a medium in their art making. Artist not only integrates light and space to create a unique worship-space for engaging the viewer to have an immersive experience of the power of light, but also for the viewer to concentrate on exploring and meditating the connecting between life and light in the particular space. Such as James Turrell’s monumental The Roden Crater Project, Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels and Olafur Eliasson’s The Weather Project.
 
In this 5Art Space project, I investigate using light to create a unique space that leads the viewers to experience the connection between light and themselves.
