关于工作坊

“批判性动物学家研究所”(ICZ,Institute for Critical Zoologist)是艺术家赵仁辉虚构的一个科学组织。该组织旨在重新编整自然史和生态研究发现的呈现与体验方式,让自然科学摆脱实验室与研究界的桎梏。它的工作设计诸多形式:研究出版、研讨会、装置艺术、摄影展览和行为表演。本次 2017 Hugo Boss 亚洲新锐艺术家大奖展览展出的赵仁辉作品“博物自然馆”中包括动植物标本,档案通信,以及摄影装置等,关注不同时期和地域的社群与自然的互动方式。从殖民知识生产到当代城市生态,本展将多个知识脉络糅合成一次博物馆的奇遇:他以艺术家的身份去构建一些非真实的故事,以展示人类对自然的干预、控制,引起人们的好奇心,并向大家提问有关哪些被忽略的矛盾和假设。

在校园中,昆虫(或昆虫尸体)可能存在于窗台、墙角、裂缝、草丛等各个角落。虽然平时和同学们生活在同一个环境中,却常常被人忽略。它们有的体积稍大,有的微小到不注意根本看不见。在本次工作坊中,艺术家赵仁辉将会与同学们分享自己的艺术创作,并指导同学们将校园中找到的昆虫制作成标本。

About the workshop

ICZ, Institute for Critical Zoologist, is a fictional scientific institute founded by artist Robert Zhao. Through art exhibitions, publications, performances, seminars and other means, this institute aims at exploring alternative ways of presenting and experiencing natural history and ecological research other than conventional academic methods. In Robert’s “The Nature Museum” on view at Hugo Boss Asia Art 2017, collected objects, archived documents, specimen, installations, photographs and other works are employed to display the interactions and relations between nature and human beings in various periods and localities. As an artist, he constructs semi-fictional narratives to intrigue people’s interest in human intervention in nature and reveal the overlooked conflicts and propositions.

In this workshop, the artist shares his art practice with the students at Shanghai Weyu High School, and instructs them to make preserving and displaying apparatuses for insect bodies they collected in all corners of the school.
