Six plates to construct the theme of "extended animation"

In the fourth Shenzhen independent animation biennial exhibition, the viewer will find that the implementation of the theme of "extended animation" is completed through six main sections, namely "image collage, pick up image - share dynamic image", "mask your shadow", "sculpture Animation: image, media and reality scenery", "material coding" "Game symbiosis" and "recommended Exhibition" unit.

Xu Zhenxi, curator

The "image collage pick up image sharing dynamic image" section, planned by xuzhenxi, curator of South Korean Baiyan Art Center, brought the historic representative works of international famous image artist namjune Paik (1932-2006), which is the first time that such a number of works are simultaneously displayed in China. Bai Nanjun is one of the pioneers of integrating technology into the field of art. For him, technology is not only a means to achieve its purpose, but an important link in establishing a connection. The artist became the founder of image art in the late 1960s, creating the form and concept of "image collage". This concept derives from "picked up image", and finally evolved into "shared dynamic image" in the 21st century of digitization.

The curator rongsiyu

Holly Roussel Perret Gentil, curator, museum science and art history scholar from the United States and Switzerland, brought a new work commissioned by the young artist Augustin rebetez, commissioned by the Shenzhen independent animation biennial, Mongolia, which is also the first exhibition of Leibert in China, It is a model of its extensive art practice. The work is a multi channel immersion device, which is completed by rebertes and several artists. It integrates the media of lighting engineering, painting, photography, sculpture and noise, and puts the viewer in a world full of poetic tension, melancholy and gloomy and can be used for people to think about human situation. The fixed animation technology used in the work also creates a dizzying situation.

Different exploration of exhibition in two famous art universities

After more than one year of teaching practice, two famous art colleges and universities, Karlsruhe National Design Institute and Sichuan Academy of fine arts of China, have concentrated on two different explorations at the fourth Shenzhen independent animation Biennial, It is the two sections of material coding, which is planned by danielfrank, the German curator, and Tang Yong, the Chinese curator, who planned the sculpture Animation: image, media and realistic scenery.

In the material coding section, in order to achieve the dynamic display of "extended animation", curator Daniel Frank tries to sort out the five-stage theory of cultural development of anthropologist William Forrest, and put it into the scope of art history, take out cases and analyze and modify it, so as to make the project more exploratory. From this perspective, the works of eight artists from Karlsruhe National Institute of design have evolved the practical operation mode of physical devices in the context of culture and art. These devices can make the complex world accessible through computer operation and four-dimensional projection.

In the "sculpture Animation: image, media and realistic scenery", the artists create the works in a cross media way, and the exhibition works are carried out from several perspectives, including the daily scene full of surprises, the perception experience of body and sound in space, etc.

In the near future, video games have become a way for some human beings to survive.
