Common Ground: UCCA 15th Anniversary Patrons Collection Exhibition

尤伦斯

Opening a season of celebration of UCCA’s fifteenth anniversary, this exhibition, drawn from the collections of UCCA patrons, includes nearly 100 works by 51 Chinese and international artists/groups. Grouped into sections on the fluidity of landscape, individual subjectivity, the instability of tradition, the power of the image, and the legacy of conceptualism, it surveys trends and offers perspectives on Chinese and global contemporary art.

 

This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of UCCA’s opening to the public, as well as the tenth anniversary of its individual giving program. A series of special programs has been planned in celebration of this milestone, beginning with the large-scale group show “Common Ground: UCCA 15th Anniversary Patrons Collection Exhibition,” on view at UCCA Beijing from April 16, 2022 to July 3, 2022. Curated by members of the UCCA curatorial team from the extensive collections of members of the UCCA Foundation Council, the exhibition showcases nearly 100 works by 51 Chinese and international artists/groups that reflect recent trends in contemporary art. Divided into five sections—“The Fluid Landscape,” “Epiphany of the Individual,” “Whose Tradition,” “Images and Forgetting,” and “Rethinking the Conceptual”—“Common Ground” seeks to situate these works within the historical contexts of their making and the current narratives of contemporary art, while opening up new lines of inquiry.

Art is Game

Art unloading…

The construction site exhibition hall is under construction…

The spell that it won’t rain tomorrow is being cast….

Yes, of course not « nothing »!

Of course there must be art!

A preview of the Art Center’s preview of No. 0 exhibition –
Let’s say it first:

The construction site exhibition is all open-air. Currently, the temperature is 2-6 degrees on February 23, and there is a probability of snow.

The construction site exhibition is completely exposed, that is to say, the ground is soil and stones, and it is not very flat anyway.

Please keep warm! The wind at the construction site is really strong! You must not catch a cold during this special period!

Please be careful! After all, this is a construction site! It’s normal to have a ditch and a ridge. Pay attention to your feet!

Such is the case…

Don’t wear high heels and air-cushioned shoes.

Well, hopefully we have succeeded in lowering your expectations and raising your curiosity.

But as long as you come, we will wait for the wind and snow.

Une promenade poétique au fil des tours et remparts d’Aigues-Mortes présentera dessin génératif, abysses en verre soufflé, morceau d’océan, planète imaginaire, rivages immergés à travers des installations, vidéos et autres pièces uniques. Le rapport à la Méditerranée, l’histoire du sel, les paysages marins, la montée des eaux, les flux du vent sont autant de regards en confrontation avec un bâtiment historique et emblématique.

Botanica

illustration-botanica_1-1641205567

La botanique, ou phytologie, est la science qui regroupe l’ensemble des disciplines étudiant les végétaux. Plus de 550.000 espèces d’organismes vivants ont été à ce jour recensés. Les botanistes par leurs inventaires, collections et méthodes de classification participent ainsi à une meilleure connaissance et compréhension du vivant.

La nature a toujours été un moteur de la création artistique. Les éléments, la faune, la flore ont contribué à diversifier les palettes de la représentation et permis d’apprendre à décrire pour mieux connaître. Une légende raconte que l’écriture chinoise serait née de l’observation d’empreintes d’oiseaux dans le sable.

Les artistes répertorient eux aussi des données, pour créer d’autres archives visuelles.
Motoco en ce sens construit une forme d’écosystème du sensible qui réunit sur le site des anciennes usines textiles DMC à Mulhouse, professionnels et explorateurs des métiers de la création. Dans un vaste bâtiment de briques rouges se rencontrent, se confrontent maintes disciplines et multiples médiums comme vecteurs d’expressions plastiques, scéniques voire musicales.

A chacun ses territoires insolites… Mais il semblait naturel d’engager une conversation entre des artistes liés à Motoco et le public de la Fondation François Schneider, de réunir le végétal et l’eau et d’en imaginer les possibles dialogues.

Nature Inside Art State

微信图片_20220515210730

« Naturally » is a state of being appropriate, a balance and nature in space. Human art is born out of nature, and artists are also imitating nature unconsciously. According to the aesthetic principles of natural art, « Nature is an infinite sphere, and its inner quality center is located in every place, so the surrounding is not anywhere. » , Mo Deqilun, it is called Tianjun. » This means that everything in nature is a link in the « natural chain » – « moving and flowing and metabolizing each other », and they all have an equal relationship with each other , that is, the inside and outside of the space are all phenomenal centers to metaphorize the nature of nature.
