無日星AO22──孫曉宇個展
Sunless Asteroid AO22 - Sun Xiaoyu Solo Exhibition

無日星,代號AO22,一顆真實存在的星球,地球紀元1998年曾被命名為澳門(AoMen)。太陽系坍縮後,這顆失去恆星的小行星至今浪遊宇宙。沒有晝夜,半流體黑砂同時是土壤與水域,沒有睡眠,水銀質地的低矮雲層下注滿高氧空氣,明黃色天際線虛攏着人類殖民者在這死星之上復刻的層層美麗天堂幻境。殖民史與移民史的無限雜糅後,一種「絕緣」律法統治着這裏──人,只有無身份才被視為存在。也因如此,這粒暗淡光點,化作一個象徵着無上快樂和解脫升騰的圖騰,一個關於生命意義的永恆禁忌。億萬年來,關於無日星的神秘言說在象限時空內外飄蕩,無數生命趨之若鶩又從未有聞歸返⋯⋯

牛房倉庫此次將呈現於中國美術學院跨媒體藝術學院獲碩士學位的藝術家孫曉宇的個展「無日星AO22」。展覽將帶來藝術家駐澳期間創作的最新作品《蔓生都會》,並由此出發製造一個名為無日星的鏡像世界,將整個空間作為通往異世界的通關入口,每位進入空間的觀者都將閱讀一份星際偷渡者的自述體小說,參與一場行前的身份消磁儀式。展覽試圖通過隱喻一種在地想象的宇宙觀,折射出關於未來人類精神境況的思索。

Sunless Asteroid, codenamed AO22, is a planet that was once named Macao (AoMen) in 1998. After the solar system collapsed, the asteroid lost its star and has since been traveling around the universe. On AO22, there is no day and night, the semi-fluid black sand contains soil and water; there is no sleep and yet the low clouds composed of mercury are filled with high-level oxygen; on the bright yellow skyline we can see layers of paradisiacal mirages made by human colonists on this dead asteroid. After much blending of colonial and immigration histories, an "insulation law" has been imposed – only men without an identity are considered in existence. And because of this, this faint light spot turns into a totem symbolizing supreme happiness and uprising emancipation, or an eternal taboo on the meaning of life. For aeons, mysterious legends about AO22 have spread inside and outside the quadrant, and countless creatures have rushed to it but never came back.

This time Ox Warehouse presents "Sunless Asteroid AO22", a solo exhibition by Sun Xiaoyu, an artist with a MA from the School of Intermedia Art, China Academy of Art (CAA). The exhibition features her latest work, No Destinations produced during her residence at Ox Warehouse in Macao, based on which a visual world of images called Sunless Asteroid is created. This space is intended to serve as a gateway to another world. All visitors to the space will read an autobiographical novel by an AO22 smuggler and participate in a pre-departure identity degaussing ceremony. The exhibition attempts to reflect on the future of human spiritual conditions by raising a metaphor of a cosmological view imaged on earth.
