《嘟!嘟!返场大会(2017)》招集令 LIJIANG STUDIO – A DUDU CELEBRATION – CALL FOR WORK 2017 / by Jay Brown

前言STORIES

12年前,正杰从美国背井离乡来到丽江拉市海吉祥村,租下一个纳西院子,和许许多多的艺术家们把那里变成了一个自由开放的艺术工作站——丽江工作室。

12 years ago, Jay Brown became a guest of the He family in Jixiang Village, Lashihai, near Lijiang. He turned it into a freestyle open art space. Many artists have been there. And that is the story of Lijiang Studio.       

邻居二油家和许许多多的村民朋友们让这个村子变得更加亲切,把大家都拥抱成同乡人。

The neighbors, Er Ge and his family, and the friendly villagers nearby made the Jixiang village like a big family, embracing everyone who visits.  

后来,一条城里的小狗“嘟嘟”来到邻居二油家。成为了一条村狗并且儿孙满堂的她,陪伴过艺术家们的田野调查、深夜讨论、艺术创作;也见证了吉祥村开辟大路、筑起大坝、插满桃树。

Later, an urban puppy named Dudu come to the neighbor Er Ge’s house. Dudu became the top dog and a big beautiful mother in the village. And she always accompanied the artists investigating, discussing, and working. She witnessed the road laid, the dam piled up, and the peach paradise implanted.   

“嘟嘟”也是十二年时间列车的声音。
“DUDU” is the sound of a time-train 12 years long.

如同拉市海的候鸟,离家闯荡的村人一度返乡,当年丽江工作室的驻留艺术家一度返场。

Like the migratory birds of Lashihai, those villagers who once left, then returned to the village again, those artists who once came, then returned to Lijiang Studio again.

这里有大家无法忘记的东西。

Here are things people can’t forget.

 

邀请函 INVITATION

以“嘟嘟”为引子,吉祥村的“返场大会”拉开帷幕。

With beginning from “DUDU”, let’s start “an encore party” of Jixiang Village.

2017年6月起,许多驻留过的艺术家们会陆续回到拉市海吉祥村的丽江工作室,重燃热情继续各自的研究主题。群体的返场、再碰撞让人兴奋。我们诚挚邀请诸位做一次自由表达,百无禁忌。

From June 2017, many previous resident artists return to Lijiang Studio of Jixiang Village, and continue their research with new and different passion. The group’s re-encounters contain surprises. We sincerely invite you to celebrate with us by making make one expression, freely, nothing is forbidden. 

持续性的展示与传递:

每个作品的图文将以a4纸为载体,以简报(broadsheet)或者传单的样式,从丽江城里的复印店输出并现场发布。周二的村集市和村里小卖部皆可借为平台进行介入性实践。作品可以根据作者的要求择地实施。
