《就在拐角》是一次群展,将街头和胡同环境视同为艺术创作现场。作 为箭厂空间首次全方位群展,《就在拐角》邀请国内外艺术家们创作新作,这些计划令他们互动、引起他们的兴趣并使之深入其中,或者与箭厂空间临街场地固有的 社会环境相呼应。这些作品跨越空间的四壁,直接与外面的街道、近邻的商铺和居民接触, 而推动了与当地经济以及胡同生活微观环境的密切联系。

在北京,胡同不仅仅是房子与房子之间的过道,在东西南北沿经纬延伸的京城道路里,它是这个城市敏感的神经末稍,在这里,爷们侃大山、妇女聊八卦,犹如今天 的互联网,是主流话语之外民众之间交流的重要场所。而各种小生意如:包子、煎饼、水果、菜市、香烟和汽水,买者和卖者都是这些人,像一个物物交换的自给自 足的小社会,当旅游者进入这个社区才把这些买卖变成真正的商业化。当现代生活及旅游者侵入胡同之后,当代视觉文化却未把胡同及其居民纳入他们的视野之中, 而对等地,胡同以及居民也对当代艺术不加理睬。

在探索胡同半公共环境作为艺术创作的空间之外,此次展览的目的还在于吸引人的观看手法和可视性,特别是它们隶属于我们对日常生活中消费与交换的理解。箭厂 空间的观众,由近邻的街坊以及箭厂胡同的居民组成,也就是说,是当地居民、商贩以及偶然路过的人。他们并不熟悉我们很容易便同当代艺术相联系的视觉消费方 式,但却是空间的常客,他们的日常生活由很少具有视觉导向的消费所组成:买菜、买烟、买烙饼等等——这些都渗透在每天的日常生活当中。艺术界把观众设定为 美术馆馆长、策划人、收藏家、艺术研究者和学生,放弃了普通民众而把艺术的高雅模式不断地强化。艺术作品在一个多种形态或艺术与人类日常生活经历结合在一 起的语境之下被观看、留意、亲眼目睹或感受,这意味着什么呢?有没有什么方式可以进入某个现场,例如箭厂胡同,以此作为一个现场,审视与“艺术体系”相交 叠但从根本而言仍有所不同的消费体系和结构?这些就是《就在拐角》试图通过其形成和实现而认识并提出的问题。

“箭厂空间”是一个由独立策展人和艺术家组织 策划的艺术橱窗项目。空间位于北京市中心的胡同里,原本是个小商铺,经过改造后拥有10平方米的展出面积。“箭厂空间”首先希望通过橱窗这种特殊的展示方 式,为艺术家的创作方法提供一种新的可能,空间内定期更新的艺术作品将会在这里每天面对不同的社会群体和文化情境。其次项目自身也试图探讨艺术与日常生活 之间的美学关系,尝试艺术创作与公共空间的有机对话,促进当代艺术的试验,交流与研究。“箭厂空间”将会积极地邀请国内和国外的艺术家提供现场装置和项目。

Just Around the Corner is a group exhibition that looks at the street and hutong environment as a site for artistic creation. Marking Arrow Factory’s first group exhibition, Just Around the Corner invites international and local artists to make new projects that interact, engage, embed themselves or otherwise respond to social conditions that persist within Arrow Factory’s storefront location. Extending beyond the four walls of Arrow Factory’s space to engage more directly with the outdoor street and neighboring businesses and residents, these works wish to promote a seamless relationship with the local economies and micro-environments of hutong life.

In taking the hutong as site for artistic production, Just Around the Corner also aims at engaging strategies of looking and visibility, especially as they pertain to our understandings of consumption and exchange in daily life. The audience at Arrow Factory is made up of immediate neighbors and residents of Jianchang Hutong, namely local residents, merchants and random passersby. Unaccustomed to the modes of visual consumption we readily associate with contemporary art, they are regular users of the space and inhabitants whose daily practice is composed of less visually oriented types of consumption—buying vegetables, cigarettes, pancake bread, etc—that permeate everyday life. Even though modern lifestyles and new inhabitants have invaded the hutong, modern visual culture and art has yet to incorporate the hutong and its residents into its own horizon and hutong residents are nonchalant when it comes to contemporary art. The art world views its audience as the museum director, curator, collector, art researcher and art student, gradually abandoning the general public and enforcing a high-minded view of art. But what does it mean for works of art to be seen, noticed, witnessed, and felt in contexts where the modalities of art merge with everyday human experience? Are there ways to approach a particular location, like Arrow Factory Hutong, as a site for examining the systems and structures of consumption that overlap with but remain fundamentally different than those of the ‘art system’? These are some of the ideas Just Around the Corner seeks to identify and pose through its own formation and realization.

Arrow Factory is an independently run alternative storefront space that seeks to advance artistic collaboration, exploration and experimentation across different cultural contexts and viewing publics. Located in a small hutong in Beijing’s city center, Arrow Factory reclaims existing commercial space to present artworks that stimulate dialogue between art and contemporary urban space. Aimed at reaching a diverse public made up of local residents, as well as local and international art audiences, our modestly sized space (approx 10 square meters or 100 square feet) is intended to create new avenues for artistic production in China and further aesthetic relationships between contemporary art and everyday life. Arrow Factory will invite artists living inside and outside of China to create site-specific installations and projects that will be available for view in its storefront location 7 days a week
