Sat, 2008-11-01 06:18
Priscilla Bracks为我们汇报了在澳大利亚巡回展出的实验游乐场(Experimenta Playground)。她写道: 我最近在墨尔本的艺术中心(The Arts Centre)安装我的艺术作品,它将在Experimenta游乐场:国际媒体艺术双年展(Experimenta Playground: International Biennial of Media Arts)上进行展出。这次展览的范围主要集中在媒体艺术,这在澳大利亚是很少见的。因此我不仅为自己的作品得以展出的兴奋,更为有此机会看到来自全世界非常酷的作品而感到荣幸。 艺术中心在墨尔本市中心,毗邻联邦广场(Federation Square),俯瞰亚拉河(Yarra River)南岸的林荫道。Experimenta将郑淑丽(Shu-Lea Cheang)的著名作品《婴儿之爱》 (Baby Love,2005)安排在这个美妙的地点,并且延伸到林荫道上。《婴儿之爱》是一个巨大的茶杯形移动装置,你可以坐进去驾驶它,载着一个体型庞大、吸着奶嘴的塑料软体婴儿兜风。这个大茶杯移动起来比游乐园的碰碰车要慢很多,但是网
