An Art Experience in partnership with Shanghai Daily and Cachet Boutique Hotel.

 

Wait a moment is an exhibition gathering cutting edge Chinese and Western contemporary artworks.

Ubiquitous phrase which immediately thrusts the human being into any number of recognizable situations. Being in a queue, being asked to queue longer. Being treading water between patience and frustration. Being on the line and at the end of it, tethered by a set of time bound rules. And in the same time, these same ‘waiting people’ are being asked to hurry, to run after time. Day after day they are getting more stressed, faster and older. They do not have time to look at their neighbors or themselves. People’s hearts are prisoner of this race, being sentenced to balance between running and waiting during his whole life. It is in a way, stuck in time.
Nobody really likes to wait, but who does not desire more time to reflect?
Wait a moment is foremost an interactive exhibition. The main reason beyond this curatorial process is to engage our audience in taking a moment to think. At the same time the goal of this exhibition is to invite the audience to join an interactive journey across time and locations. Our installations invite the largest amount of people to start a dialogue. The idea is to combine multi media artworks produced by a young generation of artists from different cultural background. We also invited artist using traditional media as well as the latest technology to diversify our audience experience. The goal of this exhibition is to invite the audience to take a moment to for a creative journey across time and locations.

“等等”,恐怕是出现在我们生活中的最高频词汇之一了——排队中,请求时,询问后, 无时无刻,无孔不入。

它究竟是发声者对秩序和规则的诉求,是对当下浮躁时代中耐心缺失的诘问,还是对低效、拖沓的托辞,亦或,它就是无意识的惯语?而与此同时,他们本身又何尝不为催促所累,受无形压力驱使,苦苦追赶时间?在高速运转的焦虑中日渐老去的人们,是否将失去检讨自我的心力?对听者而言,一句“等等”,在不同的语境和情景中,引发的是理解?是宽慰?是烦躁?是愤怒?是无计可施的惆怅?是无所适从的茫然?还是说,更多的人陷入了司空见惯的无奈,浑浑噩噩的麻木。面对随之而来的有期或者无期的等待,有意识或无意识地被时间或空间裹挟向前,彼岸是初心所向?是蹉跎迷失?是集体无感?多少人终其一生循环着奔忙与等待的无尽博弈?多少人被困在了时间里,无处藏身无处逃遁?
隐藏在“等等”之后的是诸多可能的负面情绪,而与此同时,它又为我们开启了一个有价值的话题——没有人真正喜欢等待,但谁不渴望更多的时间思考?

想象一下对自己说“等等”的场景,你会发现,每每此时恰是潜意识的惊醒,是对第一反应和固有成见的迟疑;是电光火石间激发了不同维度或更多方向的解读,无尽的可能性被开启。在这犹豫的瞬间,时间仿佛被按住了暂停键,静止在当前这一帧,却让你的思维得以超越时空限制,不受规则羁绊,用全新的视角,以举重若轻的身份,观察自己,自身承载的文化,以及身边的环境,直抵心深处。

本次展览的发心正是借这个短语作有趣的发问,让存困惑、有不满、或无意识的人们,为自己按下暂停键,审视平常所无暇审视,梳理平常所无心梳理,在与艺术的交互中,享受一场抛开时空、文化差异的奇妙旅程。
