nomads.:Exculpatio是一个无声的展示和雕塑空间,同时在意大利威尼斯的Giardini della Marinaressa和位于瑞士比尔的Global R&D Cemex总部展示。该装置是欧洲文化中心在2022年威尼斯双年展期间策划的“个人结构”展览的一部分。

nomads.:Exculpatio by nomad. + Global R&D Cemex is a silent demonstration and a sculptural space simultaneously hosted at Giardini della Marinaressa in Venice, Italy and Global R&D Cemex Headquarters in Biel-Bienne, Switzerland. It is part of the Exhibition “PERSONAL STRUCTURES”curated by the European Cultural Centre during the Venice Biennale 2022.

 

 

Exculpatio装置是一场长期对话的具体化呈现,其以混凝土块作为创意媒介,围绕可持续性主题进行探索。它在对话中展现的多样性引起了人们对其建造过程和物理性质的持续关注。

This project is the materialization of a long conversation exploring the speech surrounding sustainability through concrete as a creative counterpart. Its versatility in the dialogue has maintained the attention on the tectonics of the process contributing to its chameleonic physicality.

 

▽Exculpatio过程结构 The tectonics of the process

 

自2019年以来,Exculpatio经历了多次升级以适应环境,在瑞士,它以两座矩形巨石相对而立的形式矗立在草坪上,由80个独立的混凝土像素块组成,中间留出空隙,两侧的混凝土块上带有树干化石纹理的印记。而在意大利,Exculpatio则以不断变化的即兴组合方式呈现出来,邀请公众参与对话并采取行动。

After morphing and adapting to its environment since 2019, Exculpatio stands in Switzerland as two rectangular monoliths embracing the negative of nature. This void is created by the imprint of a tree trunk fossilized within two upright monumental concrete blocks fractured into eighty pixels. In Italy, Exculpatio presents its pixels in an ever-changing impromptu arrangement, which symbolically opens the conversation to the public and invites them to take action.

 

 

项目的发展  Metamorphosis of the project 

Exculpatio在过去三年中不断发展。在2019年项目启动之初,它就强调需要深刻理解维持地球运行系统的自然:自然并非一个空间,既不能进入,也不可脱离。这种全球性的意识对于提出一种真正可持续的生活方式至关重要。可持续是一个极其危险的词,因为它隐含弥补性质,为我们的罪责开脱,让生活一如平常。

Exculpatio has come to life over the past three years. At the initiation of the project’s journey in 2019, it empathized the need for a profound understanding of nature as the operating system of the planet: nature is not a space, so you can neither be in, nor out of it. This global realization is crucial in order to propose a truly sustainable lifestyle. Sustainable is an extremely perilous word as it has an implicit redeeming character that exonerates us and allows us to continue business as usual.

 

 

2020年,“破坏”渗透到整个装置中,为了容忍我们短暂本性而共同构建的结构一旦遭到破坏,人与自然的二元对立关系就会瓦解。这种跳脱在”Exculpatio”2020年的迭代中得到了突出体现。该项目探索了自然的运作方式为何一直困扰着人类,因为我们的心灵梦想着永恒,而自然系统的自我保护机制却使其变幻无常。

2021年,Exculpatio装置进一步发展,当时正在进行的对话活动经过深思熟虑,已经触及到了问题的紧迫性:没有自然,会怎么样?缺乏自然就是终极的虚无,这是一个令人不安的概念。人类可以继续用空洞的话语,标签和沟通噱头来为自己开脱。但与此同时,当未来变成了现实,应对气候变化的实质性行动仍然缺乏。当大自然的恢复力无法让地球再次成为生命的家园时,会发生什么?一个没有生命的地球是一个令人窒息的想法,是绝对的虚无。

In 2020, “disruption” permeated the installation. The Human – nature dichotomy always crumbles once disruption bursts the construct collectively crafted to tolerate our ephemeral nature. This disconnection was highlighted in Exculpatio’s 2020 iteration. The project explored how the ways of nature have always unsettled humans because our minds dream with permanence, while natural systems express themselves through change, disruption, adaptation, and impermanence as tools of self-preservation.

Exculpatio evolved further during 2021 when the ongoing dialogue arrived to the root of the urgency behind our deliberations: Without nature, what? Lack of nature is the ultimate nothingness. It is an unsettling concept. Humanity can carry on with empty discourses, labels and communication gimmicks that exculpate us. In the meantime, the future becomes present and substantial action against climate change continues to be absent. What happens after nature’s resilience is not able to bring Earth back into a haven for life once again? A no-life-Earth is a suffocating idea, the absolute void.

 

 

2022年3月,Exculpatio再次迎来了新的迭代机会。这一次,它聚焦”适应性”而有所变化,以表演的形式来阐释该装置作为展示和雕塑空间的双重本质,以及它在意大利和瑞士两地的存在。

In March 2022, another opportunity for iteration arrived. In a tribute to adaptation, Exculpatio embraced change and focused on a performance to articulate the installation’s dual essence as a demonstration and a sculptural space, as well as, its bilocation in Italy and Switzerland.

 

 

80个像素块表演活动以一种无声的集体表现形式,唤起人们对自身缺乏应对气候变化的实质性行动的认识:从4月14日到4月17期间,表演者携带着超轻混凝土像素块在威尼斯进行了一场诗意的朝圣之旅。当他们在威尼斯创造出第一个即兴的像素块组合的同时,这些在瑞士的像素块正被砌筑成两座三米高的长方形巨石。

The 80 Pixels’ Performance has been a silent collective manifestation to bring awareness about the lack of substantial action against climate change: a crowdsourced transportation where individuals carried ultralight concrete pixels in a poetic pilgrimage across Venice from April 14 to April 17. As the pilgrims were simultaneously creating the first impromptu pixel arrangement in Venice, the pixels were being virtually assembled into two rectangular monoliths three meters high in Switzerland.

 

 

我们属于自然,也应行动起来 We belong here, let’s take action

在最新一次迭代中,Exculpatio装置将与自然的对话以三种形式呈现在大众面前。毫无疑问,我们是复杂的灵长类动物,然而,我们不能生活在我们的操作系统——自然的规则之外。我们属于这里,也应当行动起来。Exculpatio装置可以鼓励人们参与到对话中,并为有意义的改变采取行动。

In its final metamorphosis, Exculpatio transfers the conversation to the public presenting three dialogues: The absolute nothingness, the futility of demonizing one fragment of the whole, and digitalization as one more barrier between us and our natural essence. There is no doubt that we are sophisticated primates, however, we cannot live outside the rules of our operating system, nature. We belong here, let’s take action. Exculpatio encourages people to engage in the conversation and take action for meaningful change.
