流园

发布时间:2017-01-01 来源:新锐摄影奖 作者:郭国柱 责任编辑:XXL

《流园》所拍摄的是城市化中农民所遗弃的村落,随着时间推移,它们将被自然所消化并重新归还给大地,乡村与城镇在快速城市化的当下此消彼长。

近年来的中国,资源向城市集中,这个曾经以农耕文化兴盛的国家,如今正经历着快速的城市化,大量农民快速涌入城市,导致农村和城市都应该对这种前所未有的激烈变动做出调整与适应。对于新进城的农民,熟人社会瓦解、地缘关系消失,以及新的生产方式需要他们适应,地域将对他们的身份重新定义。我作为城市化的亲历者,通过摄影对城市化进行长期关注,作品《流园》站在城市的对立面,通过被遗弃的村庄景观的记录,对农村的边缘性进行探讨,来叙述与都市经验、消费主义完全对立的观看方式,以看见的、不可见的折射出现代性与传统性的角力。

Lingering Garden
GUO Guozhu

“The Lingering Garden” captures the villages abandoned by farmers in the process of urbanization, which will be digested by nature and again returned to the earth over time. During rapid urbanization, villages and towns alter and replace each other.

Over the decades, China has gone from a cultivation culture towards modernization, resulting in millions of farmers flooding into cities to become the necessary working force. Such migration requires both the rural and the urban to change in response to the huge social transformation. To the migrant workers, they have to accept a break up of community and local connections, and must adapt themselves to the new mode of production and new identities. “The Lingering Garden” takes an opposite perspective of the modern city. Through documenting the landscape of abandoned villages, it attempts to discuss the rural as the margin, in order to offer a view that is totally different from urban experience and consumerism and to reflect the seen and hidden power struggles between the traditional and the modern.
