iRRi ART for the Golden Eagle Contemporary Art Center, with Nanjing University of the ArtsSchool of Media and Communication, Nanjing, China, April 27th, 2013 – May 12th, 2013.

„360° Portraits// 360°人。物“ is an exhibition and workshop project held in Nanjing, April 2013. The project contains two parts: First the solo show, curated and designed by iRRi ART, presenting a choice of Anton Hazewinkels “Chinesense” series containing large scale 360° portraits. Second the workshop held by Professor Zhong Jianming and Anton Hazewinkel, conducted in cooperation with the Nanjing University of the Arts.

Exhibition Design

The exhibition at the Golden Eagle Contemporary Art Center takes the photography of Anton Hazewinkel as a basis to think about our personal and everyday objects that define us and influence our everyday live, the commonness of each living surrounding and its diversity.

Central to the exhibition design is the center piece, a large print of the Guzheng teacher Lü Jin, the headphone stations, one for every large scale printing on the walls around the center piece, and the everyday objects in the exhibition space.

The center piece is an eight meter long print, mounted on a round frame and suspended from the ceiling, so that the visitor can circle around it, listening to her music and reading the interview with Mrs Lü, of which the text is printed on the ground underneath the picture.
On the surrounding walls the visitor can examine the four meter long prints while listening to the recorded interviews with the people portrayed.
The everyday objects in the center are taken from the exhibited portraits. Where ever the visitor is standing, he or she can always find the real object and the photographed in one sight line.

Curatorial Statement

Anton Hazewinkel, born 1961 in Eibergen, Netherlands, moved to China in 2005 and he began his “Chinesense” project in 2010. The series contains large scale 360° portrait pictures, inspired by the unique diversity of Chinese people living in one of the largest cities in the world. The subtle and intimate approach that he uses to portray people in their domestic environments provides the viewer with an inside perspective from a distant point of view. This dialectic is broadened by the position of the artist as a “double-outsider”, in this particular situation as a photographer and in society as a foreigner in an alien country.

The viewer is provided with a notion of intimacy that transforms from a photographic, two dimensional medium to the viewer’s own three dimensional world, bridging the lives of the audience and those portrayed in the images.  The everyday objects exist in the mergence that lingers between these realms, evoking a purposeful familiarity that involves the viewer by triggering experiences, memories and associations.  As the objects are displayed in the exhibition, they take on the role of being representatives; capsules transporting the personal to the public, also delineating the dialectic between photographer and model. The works invite the audience to step into the life of a stranger, sharing a glimpse of her or his personality, and experiencing a moment together.

The sound installation seems to emerge right out of the picture where the Guzheng teacher  Lü Jin is shown in her studio. By listening to the interviews the viewers immediately find themselves involved in a conversation with the person portrayed, although they might not know her or him personally. This conversation enrolls the viewer as an active member in a stranger‘s life, through the presentation of their living conditions and reflections.

Each panoramic photo consists of 15 – 20 stitched photos. The long edge of the photos is around 23,000 pixels. Each panorama is around 70 Mpix in 16bit colors.

The title of the project “360° portraits // 360° 人。物“ is the setting under which both the solo exhibition and the workshop come together to one focus: people and their objects. The diversity of people is an inquisitive focus of the workshop as well as it is in Anton Hazewinkel’s portrait series. The workshop depicts people with an object that has a strong emotional connotation. In Hazewinkel’s exhibition the objects obtain their emotional relevance through their connectivity within a general social fabric. They allow us to discover similarities between the love stories, which are subject to the workshop, and our own experiences and desires.Anton Hazewinkel (个人展)

IRRI 艺术节将于2013年4月27日 – 2013年5月12日在中国南京的南京艺术学院,媒体与传播学院,金鹰当代艺术中心举行。

“360°人.物”项目是于2013年4月在南京举行的展览和研讨会项目。该项目包含两个部分:首先,由IRRI艺术策划和设计的个人展,展出Anton Hazewinkels 的“Chinesense”系列大型360°肖像。第二,钟建明教授和Anton Hazewinkel举办的工作坊,与南京艺术学院合作进行。

展览设计

在金鹰国际当代艺术中心举行的展览以Anton Hazewinkel的摄影作品为主,重新思考定义我们自身和影响我们的日常生活,每个人居住环境的共性和多样性以及个人和日常物体之间的关联。

展览设计的中心是古筝老师吕劲的大肖像, 周围墙壁上都挂着耳机,以及展出出现在摄影作品中的日常生活用品。

中心部分是一个8米长的印刷品,装裱在一个圆形框里,悬挂在天花板上,游客可以围在它的周围,聆听她的音乐并阅读吕女士访谈,文字印在照片下方的地面上。
展厅周围的墙壁上,观众可以一边观看四米长的摄影作品,一边聆听所描绘人物的录音采访。

在展厅中心所展示的日常物品取自于墙上的摄影作品。无论游客站在任何地方,总能找到相呼应的真正的对象,并可以从一个特定的角度进行拍摄。

策展声明

Anton Hazewinkel,1961年出生于荷兰艾博亨,2005年搬到中国,并在2010年开始他的“Chinesense”项目。该系列产品包括:大型360°的人像照片,灵感来自于居住在世界上最大的城市之一的中国人生活独特的多样性。他用微妙而亲密的方式来描绘人们在其家庭环境的情况,从遥远的角度为观众提供了内部视角。这种辩证被艺术家作为“双局外人”的定位扩大了,在这种特殊情况下,他既是社会上的摄影师,也是在一个陌生国度的外国人。

观众被灌输亲密关系的概念,从摄影,二维介质转换到观众自己的三维世界,将观众的生活与图像中所描绘的生活连接起来。在结合处存在的日常物品中徘徊在这些领域之间,唤起了针对性的熟悉感,通过触发经历、记忆和联系将观众涉入其中。由于这些物体被展示在展览中,他们承担代表性的作用,也向公众传输个人感触;同时也描绘摄影师和模型之间的辩证关系。这些作品邀请观众步入陌生人的生活,分享他或她的个性窥视,并一起经历这一时刻。

当古筝老师吕劲出现在她的工作室时,语音装置似乎立刻出现在画像边。通过听访谈,观众立刻发现自己置身与画像中所描绘的人的谈话中,尽管他们可能不认识她或他本人。这次谈话录将观众作为积极的成员纳入陌生人的生活中,通过介绍他们的生活条件和反思。

每个全景照片由15 – 20张驳接照片组成。照片的长边约23,000像素。每张全景照片大约70万像素,16位色彩。

项目标题“/360°人.物”的设置是将个人展和研讨会结合成一个重点:人们和他们的对象。人的多样性是研讨会中令人好奇的焦点,在Anton Hazewinkel的肖像系列中也是如此。本次研讨会描绘了人们的一个具有强烈的情感内涵的物体。在Hazewinkel展览中,该物体通过在一般的社会结构他们的连接获得他们的情感关联。他们使我们能够发现爱情故事之间的相似之处,这受到研讨会以及我们自己的经验和欲望的影响。
