World Relic 世界·遗迹
(2004-2005)

Just like the archaelogists who idolized the tumulus and supposed the history by some negligible traces,I indulged myself in the relic which was abandoned,dilapidated,covered and eradicated rapidly by the era which I live in, caught a bunches of divive light and agglomerated into the films by the long-time exposure. I tried to keep the truth of the history and society with these relic pictures reverted and replicated truly. However,what was truth?

World&Relic series were made following the thought path of "archaeology",only here was the concept of the time and space twisted and pestered once again. I went to Guangzhou,shenzhen,shanghai continually,to the world theme parks under different states, and repeated the same shooting indefatigably.My purpose was not to look for interesting,nice-looking and formalistic pictures. To let these similar pictures which were largely identical but with minor difference present themselves together, perhaps this was one of the real purposes, because only with such presentation could you see a realistic as well as a surrealistic world,a conjecturally invented as well as really existing world, a world which you have already placed yourself thereinto while you have no regard for, a world of "no value,but a value judgement itself",a world among which time and space has been twisted and interveined.This was also the truth of the history and society where we existed. However,was this really the truth? What was truth after all? No no seemed to be able to give an answer,especially in the occurent historical situation.

就像醉心于古墓中的考古学家,通过微不足道的痕迹推想历史,我则醉心于将我所生存的这个时代迅速被遗弃,荒废,覆盖,铲除的“遗迹”,通过长时间的暴光变成一道道灵光凝聚在胶片中,试图在这真实还原复制的遗迹照片中,留贮所处历史和社会的真相。然而,何为真相?

《世界·遗迹》系列正是以“考古学”思路所做出的,只不过,在这里,时间和空间的概念再一次被扭曲和纠缠。不断地去到广州、深圳、上海等地,不同状态的世界主题公园,不厌其烦地重复着相同的拍摄工作,其目的并非是去寻找有趣、好看的形式感的画面。让这些看似大同小异的照片集体呈现,也许才是其目的之一,因为只有在这样的呈现中,你可以看到一个既是现实的却又是超现实的世界,一个既是臆想虚拟的却又是真实存在的世界,一个已经置身其中却又置之度外的世界,一个“没有任何价值,但本身就是价值判断”的世界,一个扭曲交错了时间和空间的世界。这也是我们所处历史和社会的真相。然而,这真的就是真相吗?真相到底是什么?似乎谁也给不出答案,尤其是在这样一个正在发生的历史情境中。
