哎,艾神這件作品,真令我想哭……

 

紅色的汽球是twitter的雀仔商標,金色的汽球是「草泥馬」,走廊盡頭有一排吹風機,不停把汽球往上吹,金紅汽球閃閃燦爛地飄啊飄,視覺效果滿分,小孩們看到汽球興奮莫明,在汽球陣中玩個不亦樂乎。

 

紅twitter是西方言論自由的象徵,金草泥馬則是中國言論箝制的借代;在中國,有口不能言、有冤不能伸、有淚不能流;而在澳洲,沉重的「言論自由」變成輕巧的汽球,看着孩子們一邊輕拍草泥馬、另一邊輕打twitter,天真瀾漫地笑着,艾神這個反諷,真做得太絕了……

 

 

This piece of art work nearly made me cry…

 

The red balloon is the twitter bird and the golden balloon is ‘Alpace/Llama’ (which sounds like a curse language in Chinese). The balloons were blowing up by the blowing machines installed in the end of the hall. The visual was absolutely beautiful: the red and golden balloon dancing in the most shinny way…

And the kids were very excited to see so many balloons and rushed to them.

 

The red twitter represented ‘free speech’ in western world and the golden ‘Alpace/Llama’ represented ‘censorship’ in China. China is a place where no tears could be seen without freedom of speech.

But the heaviness of ‘free speech’ turns into light balloon in Australia. This irony made by Ai was just absolutely to the point when I saw the children playing and laughing happily with the ‘free twitter’ and ‘censor Alpace/Llama’…

艾神(又)被軟禁了,在被禁期間,他每日放一束鮮花在工作室門外的單車籃中,以最詩意、最綠色、最温柔的方法去表達感受……

 

So Ai was putting under house arrest (again). And he put a bunch of fresh flowers in the bucket on the bicycle outside his studio every day. Expressing his feelings in the most poetic, most green and most tender way…

繁花似錦,全都是人工手作的!

看似一樣,實則相異,每朵花、每個人也獨特而美麗。

 

A sea of white flowers! All hand-made!

They all look similar but they are all different. Every flower, every person is unique and beautiful.

 

十大武器之首~~~摺凳!

這些木椅是中國的尋常家具,大圓木凳,靠攏而聚,一如國民特色。

 

Number 1 of all weapons, the wooden chair!!

No, just kidding.

These wooden chairs were normal furniture in Chinese families. They stick with each other and form a big circle just like the characters of Chinese people.
