Curated by forget art
On Sep. 6, in a bathhouse at Caochangdi, forget art launched a project about how to redefine the attribute of original space through micro intervention in public place. Only by reunderstanding and dissemination of objects, situation and time in a certain space and then restoration,we are just trying to let people experience the concept of space after space. It is presented in an uncertain or intangible way, it could be considered as found objects, installation, sound, situation and words,these things contain aesthetics of nearly ignorance and low profile.
For 2010 Get it louder on Sep.19, forget art will continue the understanding of the special context at an alternative space. This time it is a business center which will be opened very soon, so forget art designed a new project Object Transformer. In other words, we will reunderstand and deconstruct daily objects and commodities through deobject which means to remove their inherent functions and redefine them with a brand-new meaning, namely, there will not be any change formally, maybe just micro intervention. Through continuous selection and transformation of objects and commodities, the artists obtain a kind of object after object in a minimal way.
forget art is a machine with magnificent throughput capacity. Each visitor can take part in the transforming process by leaving their belongings to the machine, and with delicate modification it will be returned, which could be an unexpected experience for every visitor. Any object or form is welcomed, It will be selected and transferred with new content and extension.
Hundreds of objects collected for this project will be equally divided to 13 participating artists, each of them will create an unique piece and finally assemble into one large meaningless work, we are going to show this piece somewhere in Beijing. Only the object donators will be invited to visit this exhibition.
More than 10 uncertain pieces will be displayed at 2010 Get It Louder, which can be considered as installation, found objects,situation, sound, etc.
