MANIFESTO— Writing



2019




MANIFESTO is a writing piece.

This work is a dialogue between the artist and the world. The artist has constantly established his own rules while rebelling against the existing rules of the world. It can be snarled or spoken softly. It is anger, praise, grief, and unwillingness.



宣言 是一件写作作品。

这件作品是艺术家与世界的一次对白。艺术家在不断地与反抗这个世界的既有规则的同时也建立了自己的规则。它可以被嘶吼,也可以被轻声的诉说。它是愤怒、是赞美、是悲痛、是不甘。

全文如下:

I believe that prosperity and landscape are the best medicines that human invented. It makes us numb and blind.
I believe that tomorrow will not be better. Only the current moment is the peak, the climax. Live at this moment.
I believe that the balance is only a morbid state that exists only in an instant. Unbalance is the normal state of the world.
I believe that art is romantic, the joy of arting is like falling in love with someone.
I believe that there is no simple ugly or beautiful, no absolute right or wrong. The appearance cannot be used as a criterion for evaluating the difference of things.
I believe that the inspiration on the toilet is more impressive than the one that is clearly analyzed and thought out.
I believe that simplicity should be the essence of art. Complexity is just a means of returning to simplicity.
I believe that the rules are the cage of mankind, and the law is the embarrassment of the world. Everything else except this contains the endless treasures I should explore.
I believe that conscience sometimes becomes a mask of hypocrisy.
I believe, the first intuition.
I believe that only time is eternal.

我相信,繁华和景观是人类发明的最好良药。 他让我们麻木不仁。
我相信,明天不会更好。只有当下这一刻才是顶峰,是高潮。活在这一刻。
我相信,平衡某种程度上像是只存在在瞬间的病态,失衡是是世间常态。
我相信,艺术是浪漫的,arting的愉悦好像和一个人坠入爱河。
我相信,没有单纯的丑或美,没有绝对的对与错,表象不能作为评价事物差异的标准。
我相信,马桶上的灵感比经过明确分析和思考的方案更加动人。
我相信,简单应是艺术的本质,复杂只是回归简单的手段。
我相信,规则是人类的牢笼,规律是世间的桎梏。除此之外的一切区域,是我应去探索无尽的宝藏。
我相信,良知有时候会成为一个人虚伪的面具。
我相信,第一直觉。
我相信,唯有时间永恒。


To the World:
致世界

The world, you are a crazy beast.
City, you are a forest without end.
So what am I?
I am the raccoon, rabbit, deer that shelters the beasts in the forest.
Either always alert and run hard, or be swallowed by the beast.
Born to be a meaningless meat that fills the stomach of others.

世界呀,你是一头疯狂的野兽。
城市呀,你是没有尽头的森林。
而我呢,我是那森林里躲避野兽的浣熊、兔子、鹿。
要么时刻警觉并拼命奔跑,要么被这个名为“世界”的野兽吞噬。
生而不过是一块为填饱别人的肚子的肉。  


To the Spectacle/ Landscape
致景观

What a rich time this is!
I have seen the empty city at midnight.
Neon and high hanging advertising slogans,
Skyscrapers and staggered roads,
All of these are actually combined into a nice landscape in our eyes.

我们生活在一个多么丰富的时代呀。
我看过午夜空荡荡的城市,
霓虹和高高悬空的广告标语,
摩天大楼和交错延绵的公路,
这些所有在我们的眼睛里却也组合成了一幅不错的风景。

Skyscrapers are the Andes of human.
Neon is an artificial galaxy.
Highways are like ocean currents and monsoons that run through the earth.
Different languages are being said, written or spread, which seems to have the same effect as plant seeds brought to every corner of world by animals.
This is the landscape of "civilization",
the tombstone we prepared in advance for burying ourselves.
No one needs to pay homage to the lost time,
because time will only move forward.

摩天大楼是人类的安第斯山脉。
霓虹是人造的银河。
公路就像洋流和季风正在贯穿整个地球。
不同的文字被诵说、写下或传播,这和不同的植物种子被动物带到世界各个角落似乎有着异曲同工之妙。
这是“文明”的景观,
是我们为埋葬自己提前准备的墓碑。
没有人需要祭奠逝去的光阴,因为时间只会向前。

I think art has a sublime beauty probably because it was born before all civilizations, it is the most primitive and oldest thing.
Isn't the sunset on the vast plains a huge performance that the world has watched together?
Isn't the wave hitting the beach day after day like an opera that is performed every day?
Isn't plant growth, bloom, fruiting, and dying a process of sculpting itself?

我想艺术崇高的美大概是因为它诞生在一切文明之前,
它是最原始的最古老的事物。
难道广阔平原上的日落不是一场世界共同观看的巨大表演吗?
日复一日的潮汐拍打着地面难道不是一场每天上演的歌剧吗?
植物生长、绽放、结果、凋零不像是一个雕塑自己的过程吗?

I am small.
I said to myself: Before I try to understand art,
I should understand the vastness and subtlety of this world.
I should understand the nature of man, the joys and sorrows of man, the greatness and humbleness of man.

我是渺小的。
我对自己说:
在我试图懂得艺术之前,
我应该了解这个世界的广袤和微妙。
我要了解人的本性,人的悲欢,人的伟大和卑微。


To Rules
致规则

The predecessor of the rules for social actors collective work contract to enslave people's physical or will born.
The rule for me is to give myself a standard to intervene in all contexts.
It is changing due to the different states of knowledge emotion and value.
If I want to create new rules.
I need to break the old rules.
Even smash, trample, swear.
I have to draw a clear line with the old me to build a new one.


为何我们要活在规则里,为了尊严?还是为了公认的和平和秩序。
规则的前身是为了奴役人的体力或意志而诞生的对于社会参与者集体奏效的契约。
而规则对于我而言,是在不同时期给自己一个介入一切语境。它是变化的,介于当时的情绪状态知识体系和价值观。
但是若要建立新的规则,必要打破旧规则,甚至粉碎、践踏、蹂躏、决绝。我必须和旧的我划清明显的界限,才能建立新的我,看清新的我。


To Life
致生活

Always eat the food you enjoy eating. 
Like it? Then, do it. Don’t like it? Don’t do it.
Do your best to preserve the joy of enjoying something.
Joy is always the first motivation, nothing is more important than joy.
Continue with friend you like.
For those who don't like, please stay away from them as soon as possible.
Nothing is more important than a partner with the right values and direction.
If the joy disappears or is temporarily exhausted,
stop immediately and go to do other things.
Excessive consumption can only be counterproductive.

永远吃你想吃的食物。
喜欢就做,不喜欢就不要做。尽全力保留那种因为享受于做某件事而产生的喜悦。欢愉永远是第一动力,没什么比欢愉更加重要。
喜欢的人就继续交往,不喜欢的人请尽快远离。没什么比拥有合适价值观和工作方向的伙伴更加重要。
如果喜悦消失或暂时消耗殆尽,请马上停下来并转去做其他的事情。过度消耗只会适得其反。
