Memory of childhood and nostalgia

Artist talk: October 30, 3 pm - 6 pm

Curated by Bai Jiafeng - Contemporary Art 艺术当代 Magazine

Memory of childhood and Nostalgia.

Childhood memory plays an important role in everybody's growing experience, which affects the potential of each individual's psychological orientation and emotional sustenance.Childhood memory is caused by the results of selection and reconstruction of when and what they've experienced.

Through the fragments of memory, we can tell not only interpretation of the knowledge but also the era of social and identity.

Nowadays among young generation, the recalling back  to childhood appears  ahead of average, which is named nostalgia.Nostalgia  is different with the retro style appearing in classic literature. The feature of nostalgia will establish the collective memory related to a personal childhood impression through a series of different images, pictures and situation.

This nostalgia is not only psychologically originated from the pressure made by younger generation when they facing the reality decided to extract, protect and even avoid themselves, but also the image symbol of the rapid developing and quickly update in today's visual experience, which eliminate us quickly.

All in all,  customary in this moment might be a kind of nostalgia in future. 

Discussion topics includes two sub-topics:

1."Different field" --- Reverse think about childhood memory which has already become a collective memory.

First of all, find a common experience and then find out a variety of presence in collective memory by individual differences, at this level, which including how we re-read and rebuild out scene of memory.

2."How do we bury the idol" ----Discuss how does the trend of rapid development change and update quickly. So that the popular which we were accustomed has quickly become to the "nostalgia", which hide the visual landscape of society under the fast development.

讨论主题   童年记忆与怀旧情结:

童年记忆在每个人的成长经历中都占有重要的地位,它影响着每一个人的潜在的心理取向、与情感寄托。童年记忆是人对于其所经历的时代主观选择与重建的结果,从记忆的碎片中,不但能解读出他对于自己的认知,同样也映射了他对于社会与时代的认同感。

而,在今天的青年一代中,对于童年记忆的追溯出现了普遍的提前,这种情况又被我们称为怀旧情结。怀旧情结与以往在文学、设计等形式中出现的怀旧与复古的风格不同,其突出的特征是正在通过一系列物象、图像与情境,建立起一种关于个人的童年印象的集体记忆。共同的游戏、共同的经历、共同的话题、共同的体验。

这种怀旧情结不仅在心理上源自于年青一代在面临着扑面而来的现实压力时所做出的自我解压、保护甚至是逃避,而且在视觉经验上也是今天飞速发展、快速更新的视觉经验与图像符号将我们快速淘汰的结果。换言之,今天的一种习惯,可能在明天就成为了一种怀旧。

因此,此次讨论包含两个子话题:

其一是“差异的现场”,意在,从一种已经成为集体记忆的童年记忆中反向思考,先寻找一种经历的共同点,进而通过个人的个体记忆的差异来寻找一种集体记忆中得多样化存在。在这个层面上,也包括了我们今天如何重新解读、再建我们曾经的记忆现场。

其二是“我们如何埋葬偶像”,讨论飞速发展的时代潮流、流行趣味是如何日新月异、快速更新,以至于我们曾经习惯的流行很快地成为了“怀旧”,这中飞速更新的背后隐藏着我们今天社会怎样的视觉景观。

New Show - Keep the fire burning


Keep the fire burning - a video installation by Maximilian Moll

Opening: October 29, 6 pm - 9 pm

Keep the fire burning (2008, loop-video installation)


This impressive video installation is about the goods and bads of fire. Starting with a useful match, it shows step by step the destructive potential that lies in the fire. The cozy beginning transforms in a horror scenario, which consists of war and action movie scenes, accompanied with threatening music. Different qualities and meanings of this essential element can be experienced in that stunning installation.

Moll is born 1967 in Germany. After studying in Germany and USA he is now working as an artist in Berlin. 2010 he received the 16th Video Art Award Bremen for his work "Keep the fire burning".
