Camila Pinogay的展览像是让观众打开一间办公室或者一所学校的失物招领箱。这些物品似乎停留在了被丢失的时刻,可一旦被发现,它们就开始传递一种内在的力量,这种力量使它们在科技发达的今天依然没有被淘汰,在今天仍然是可以使用的物品。就这样,他们把自己变成考古学作品,让观众在每一件作品中都能发现其中包含的记忆空间。

丝网印刷和瓷器作品技术——一种分别用于流行艺术,另一种可以追溯到几千年前——两种技术的结合让日常的物件产生了体量的变化,甚至把它们转变成不同的物品——这些物品不能被使用,但却可以引人思考,让人们在视幻觉或一个惯常的操作中产生新的发现;卷笔刀、橡皮擦、丙烯酸和油漆管、胶棒、铅笔,所有这些都缺失了本来的使用功能,和真实的物品也不完全一样。但有了它们,你就可以创建自己的工作室或文具店来抵制现代科技,也好似抵制了时间的流逝。

Camila Pinogay, 1982年出生, 视觉艺术家。2006年毕业于智利大学视觉艺术绘画专业。她的作品曾被各种艺术大赛选中参展,包括智利国家艺术馆举办的Arte Vivo艺术大赛以及智利圣地亚哥视觉艺术美术馆举办的Cabeza de Raton艺术大赛。2017年曾在上海举办“我们的月球时光展览”。

The work of Camila Pinogay invites its viewers to open a Lost and Found box at an imaginary office or school. These are objects that seem to stand still in time and that once found, they convey an inner strength of its own, a strength that has made them survive through current technology and make them still an object that could be used today. They transform themselves into archeological pieces, which allow the viewer to gain a space of memory that is contained in each of them.

The combination of the techniques of screen printing and porcelain work - one used in pop art and the other dating back millennia, respectively - , allow the replication of different daily life objects to scale, transforming them into a different kind of object — not meant to be used, but to be contemplated or to facilitate the discovery in them of an optical illusion or a ready-made operation; a pencil sharpener, erasers, acrylic and oil paint tubes, glue sticks, pencils, all which will never be used and resembling the real ones, yet not exactly the same. With them, you can create your own studio or a stationary shop that resists the development of new technologies and also that seems to have stopped in time.
