Intro

Zhang Wenzhi is a 2018 MFA graduate from Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Born and raised in Dalian, a costal city in Northeastern China, Zhang Wenzhi has a deep connection with his hometown. He also has an interest in local folklores and legends, he collected and researched local Dalian stories resembles to the ones in “Strange Stores from a Chinese Studio”, some make you claps with excitement, some make your hairs stand. Since it’s physical location, Dalian has many stories relate to sea or water. For example, according to a legend, The earthquakes are caused by the gigantic catfish’s quiver that shook the earth it carries on its back. “Dalny” is a project initiated by Zhang Wenzhi, he researched heavily on Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905), which happened on Dalian soil. The artist utilized a way of presentation similar to Europe’s “cabinets of curiosities” . Paintings, specimens, old archival materials, antique objects, all telling a newly created version of the war story.

简介

张文智是中央美术学院实验艺术学院的2018届研究生。与每一个大连人一样,张文智有着非常浓厚的家乡情结,他对大连地方志的兴趣也颇不寻常,专门收集研究一些大连本地的“聊斋故事”,一些让人拍案叫绝,一些听来毛骨悚然。大连靠海,与“海”与“水”有关的故事总是很多,比如根据传说,地震其实是背负大地的鲶鱼在颤抖。《达里尼》项目来自张文智的一项专题研究,关于在大连发生的日俄战争。艺术家使用了一种类似欧洲古老的奇珍柜的展出形式,综合绘画、标本、旧文件和老式物件,讲述了一个有关日俄战争的新版传说,其中诸多名声显赫的日俄战将,都莫名其妙地化作了大连海域颇负盛名的海鲜,被渔民们捞起送往餐桌,老饕大嚼过后再一次托生海鲜,一次次重复轮回,就像是下到了地狱中一个特殊的行刑室。
