制作头发锁——“侵犯私密”项目

3. Hair lock dark blue copy

当你用自己的DNA编织的时候,必须有些灵活性,因为你知道材料并不总是完美的。不同的头发有不同的拉伸性和弹性。事实上,我经常发现自己拿着一缕头发,有些是灰色的比较硬而结实,而另一些则比较细而柔软还有些弹力。从某种程度上来说,使用这些材料进行制作的过程,让你不得不对自己更温和更有耐心,这是极佳的个人锻炼经历。

下面一段小视频谈了头发锁和锁链,也谈了一些对这件作品参加的展览的思考。非常感谢David Muskett和他的微距镜头,还有他的快速剪辑魔法。

Video speech:

我叫Niamh Cunningham,我是参与“侵犯私密”项目的艺术家。

从上世纪中叶以来,战争不再只是战场上正规军之间的交火,许多平民也被卷入其中。妇女和儿童是最脆弱的群体,她们很容易成为攻击的目标,侵犯她们会导致家庭解体,造成毁灭性的打击,甚至带来持续几代的耻辱回忆。

这件作品是以我自己的头发为原材料。头发通常被认为是女性的象征。我测试发质,选择哪些头发可供使用,我觉得物理特质也反映了心理特质。比如一根头发可能非常细但仍富有弹力。这种灵活性让我联想起人类精神中的韧性和耐力。恢复,愈合,再一次发挥作用。不过,一旦头发被过分拉伸超过了极限,就会卷曲或者断裂。

其他白色的头发更粗更易拉伸,能像金属线一样保持形状。这些头发很结实,不容易断裂,但是和较细的有颜色的头发相比,它们缺少柔韧性。

当不同的头发编织到一起的时候,即使承受相当的压力,它们也不会断裂。

我正在做的这个项目表现的是锁和锁链。

 

我继续收集……

自从“墙和边界”展览(爱尔兰波浪2013)编织了头发头骨以来,我在持续两年多的时间里一直继续收集我的头发。尽管我没打算编织什么,因为这些作品都耗时很久,但是当被问到是否想为“侵犯私密”做点什么的时候,我手头恰好有可以用的材料。

“侵犯私密”从全球的和历史的视角开展对话,关注针对妇女的暴力行为,特别是发生在战争和冲突中的暴力行为。“侵犯私密”是一个多媒体国际性当代艺术展览,包含一系列的座谈和工作坊。

展览将于2015年9月3日在纽约白盒子美术馆开幕,随后在北京(10月25日预展)和上海(11月21日预展)巡展。2016年,在欧洲之行之后,会在墨西哥及美国展出。
