Resident Artists Mingcheng Song‘s Solo Exhibition
A Closed Loop
Opening: December 3rd 16:00
“I stand still while the world spins into a vomit of colors and light. I tried dipping into the tornado and retrieved only some feverish shapes. Outsped, my eyes landed on the remaining things that have yet to catch on, a ribbon, a fence, a window, and an insect. Too shallow for beauty or grandeur, but keep me company in their motionless solidarity. By the light that filters in from outside, together they form image after image. The images are jammed and pressed and wound up into a reel. Never meant to become coherent, they slowly separate as the momentum fleets. They grow more and more apart, but contain a piece of each other still, completing a closed loop. Echoing the motions, they are the stuff of persisting vertigo.”
关于艺术家 About the Artist
Graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in sculpture in 2021
Recently I’ve been making images on a computer with what I thought was a photographer’s approach (with the added bonus of occasionally generating interesting digital artifacts). It starts with setting up a scene, often by the various windows in my room, then I begin to decorate it with worthy subjects. Sometimes when a subject is so compelling that the place becomes marginal in the composition.
The subjects, often assuming the shape of home fabrics and clothes, were a major provider of comfort when I was living by myself in New York and later on switching from one quarantine hotel to another. I’m sure as my living circumstance changes, more scenes and subjects will come into the picture.
I also want to make sure that, despite my artistic intervention and the natural loss of fidelity with rebuilding objects in a 3d program, the final images retain a stillness that of a staged photograph. These images are traced from the most intimate daily objects and sightings, and therefore are reflections of my moods, thoughts, and visual interests of the time.
