《假装在欧洲》

策展人: 安光系  摄影师:余敏山

摄影师余敏山把镜头对准了周边的城市景观。他行走于广东佛山一带,把那些具有欧式风格的各类建筑收入镜头,一张张呈现在我们面前。

在这里,照相机帮我们照亮了城市里的这些新景观,使我们看到了平时容易所忽略的东西。

在他的照片里,似乎这些建筑自身是一个鲜活的生命呈现,里面充满着符号,充斥着由外来文化符号组成的建筑景观。它暗示了城市的需求和欲望。

这些影像里,我们能看到,资本、权力、财富、文化,它同时也展现了当下社会道德的、政治的、文化的、美学的、情感的能力和社会语境。通过这些照片,强化了某些神话和社会心态,最终构成了当下社会里人们自我闭合的幻想。

Pretending to be in Europe

Curator: An Guangxi    Photographer: Yu Minshan

The Photographer, Minshan Yu, focused his camera on the surrounding urban landscape. He traveled around Foshan, Guangdong Province to take the shots of all kinds of architectures with European style and present them to us.

Here,the camera helps us illuminate these new landscapes in the city, allowing us to see things we would otherwise ignore.

In his photos, these architectures themselves seemed to be vivid lives, filled with symbols and architectural landscapes composed of foreign cultural symbols. It implies the needs and desires of the city.

These photos not only show us capital, power, wealth and culture, but also present current moral, political, aesthetic and emotional power and social contexts of today’s society. These images enhance some deification and social mentality, and ultimately constitutes the people’s illusion of self-enclose in current society.
