About the Documentary 关于纪录片

On the second floor of Tobias Rehberger’s exhibition displays a group portrait vases, a series of works the artist has created since the 1990s. The 50 uniquely flower-adorned sculptures present the aesthetic quirks of artists and friends associated with the artist as well as an exploration of collective memory. Rirkrit Tiravanija, one of the artists included, filmed a documentary named Chew The Fat to present a group portrait in the form of video recordings. The film shows free-flowing dialogue between him and six contemporary artists: he had a drink with Philippe Parreno in Paris, observed Carsten Höller’s birdcage in Stockholm, strolled with Andrea Zittel in the desert of California, checked the mail with Liam Gillick, visited Jorge Pardo’s studio in California, and traveled through Germany by train with Tobias Rehberger.

Despite the fact that these artists create their own works with different aesthetic methods, they cannot be simply classified as a group; but from the ideological perspective, their different practices show a common rethinking, a reexamination of the desire to integrate art and life. The artists try to nurture a dynamic way of viewing by creating works that can absorb, extend and challenge the practice of art galleries.

艺术家托比亚斯·雷贝格在展览二楼呈现了一个群体肖像——从90年代起即开始创作肖像花瓶系列作品。本次展出了50件独特的花艺雕塑作品,呈现了雷贝格与其身边的艺术家和友人的美学奇想,探索集体记忆。这些雕塑中就包括另一位艺术家里克力·提拉瓦尼(Rirkrit Tiravanija),而他的纪录片《咀嚼肥肉》(英文原名:Chew The Fat意为闲谈、聊天)可以说是一件通过影像记录的形式来呈现群体肖像的作品。片中呈现了他与6位同时代的艺术家们之间闲散的对话:在巴黎他与菲利普·帕雷诺(Philippe Parreno)一起小酌,在斯德哥尔摩看卡斯滕·霍勒(Carsten Höller)的鸟笼,在加利福尼亚的沙漠中与安德烈娅·齐特尔 (Andrea Zittel)散步,与利亚姆·吉利克(Liam Gillick)一起查看邮件,参观豪尔赫·帕尔多(Jorge Pardo)在加利福尼亚的工作室;他还与本次展览艺术家托比亚斯·雷贝格一起乘火车穿越德国。
