前  言
 
我们不分先后次序任意走进两个房间,一个房间是黑白的,整洁、安静、空无一人,甚至没有人活动的痕迹;另一个房间是彩色的,整洁、安静、空无一人,甚至没有人活动的痕迹。
在被刻意抽离了日常活动的日常空间里,我们自认为很熟悉的场景突然变得陌生起来,这些一直仅仅被视为我们生活背景的一切仿佛有了灵魂,它有着凝视的目光,隐藏的内心,情绪的浮动,一种被放大和强调的空无却最大程度的饱含了言不尽意的有,某个纵深的维度在并不宏大的空间慢慢浮现出来,吸引着你想去一探深浅。
温一沛和萧潇,两个生于80年代的年轻艺术家,不约而同的选择了寂静的空间作为图像,在我看来,他们仿佛把自己置于一面镜子前面,观望,审视,思索,发现,事实上他们投射出了自己,要探究的也是自己,透过创作,他们制造了一个内心的镜像。
温一沛的画面布满饱和安静的色彩,与此同时,这些色彩又不经意似的切割了空间,给原本单纯的气质里植入了迷离的味道,建筑体的相互遮挡与掩盖,构造出一个看似平静却复杂曲折的小世界,温暖优雅的节奏贯穿其间,增添了某种装饰性,而这一切真实与否,我们好像既无法肯定又无法否定,“看上去很美”,这是人生的一个悖论吗?
萧潇的目光却是分外冷峻的,他选择黑白,一种冰冷的质地,他的镜头停留在房间的极简空间里,同时又越过了这个有限的空间,透过窗户向外面更广大的空间投去了远远的一瞥,内外被刻意强调出来,环环相套的间外之间被隐喻出来,但是在目光的流动里,内外的区分好像又模糊了界线,距离和通透,主体与旁观,在扁平的二维世界里,我们清晰的看到了某种既连接又对立的关系。进入还是出离?这是一个问题。
再平常的事物也会给出不平常的角度,一切与你有关联的都有你自身的投影,拉开距离是为了看的更清楚。站在两位艺术家的作品前,凝视他们的寂静、纠结、探寻,尝试去触碰弥漫在画面之外的不可见的空间,我在他们的镜像中也留下了作为旁观者的痕迹。 
 
这是5art搬迁后的第一个展览,在新的画廊空间里呈现他们两个各自有别的私人空间,不能不说这是一次意味深长的对话。
 
 
From Space to Space
 
We enter two rooms in no orders, one is black&white, tidy silent empty, even has no signs of living things; the other is filled with color, tidy silent empty, even has no signs of living things.
When the normal daily scenes are deliberately separated apart from daily life, the scene that we thought to be familiar with becomes to be so strange, we used to see them as life backgrounds, usually invisible, till now it owns spirit, its has staring eyes, in-hiding heart, even unsettled emotions. It attracts you, deeply.
WEN YIPEI and XIAO XIAO, they both are young artists born in 80s, and they both chose the silentest space to create their scenes. As in my opinion, they seem to put themselves in front of a mirror, to watch, to survey, to think,  to discover. In fact, they are reflecting to themselves, they are to discover themselves, they create the mirroring of their inner through their creative work.
Wen always paints in satiate and smooth color, in the meantime, the color cuts the space with no intention, makes the pure scene full of mystery. The crossed hiding and covering of the structures structure a little world of twists and peaces, where warm elegant rhythm is floating through to decorate. But it’s it true or not? We seem neither to confirm nor to deny. “It seems very attracting”, is this paradox to real life?
Xiao’s eyesight always catches the cold back&white, however. His shots stare at the simplest corner of the room, and then crosses this limited space through the window to reach to the much wider outside space, both inside and outside are exposed on purposes, but when we try to catch the interface of the inside and the outside we get lost with our seeing eyes. In the this two-dimension space, distance and transparency, subjectivity and objectives, their connected and opposite relation are clearly to be understood. To get in or to to get out? It’s a question.
Even the most normal thing will motivate extraordinary sites, all that you are related to would reflect back to yourselves. To distant is to understand. Standing in front of works of these two artists, looking into their silence, entanglement and exploration, trying to touch the untouchable world beyond the pictures, I also left sign of me in their mirrors.
This is the very first exhibition of 5art after last removal, in this new gallery they both show their very own distinguished personal inner space. You can’t deny this is one interesting conversation.
