This exhibition takes the visual creation of worker poetry as a starting point, aiming to reshape and convey the life experiences of the worker community. The participating artists use the poetry works of the worker artist group “Poetry Songs Store” as inspiration and a medium, extending the emotions, memories, and life experiences in the poetry to different levels of creative expression, creating a poetic and thought-provoking art space.

本次展览以工人诗歌的视觉化创作为出发点,旨在进行工人群体生命经验的重塑和传递。参展艺术家将工人艺术家组合“诗歌商店”的诗歌作品作为灵感和中介,将诗歌中的情绪、记忆和生命经验延伸到不同层面的创作表达中,创造了一个富有诗意又发人深省的艺术空间。

In the context of the continuous expansion of the capitalist system and the growing prevalence of consumerist culture, cultural life in the public view is becoming homogenized worldwide. Specific and rich life details are submerged in rapidly emerging popular trends. To resist the flattening of sensory experiences and the decline of imagination, we need to deeply explore the life appearances of different groups, especially those on the margins.

在资本体系不断扩张、消费主义文化日益盛行的当下,公共视野下的文化生活在世界范围内开始变得同质化,具体、丰富的生活细节被淹没在快速涌现的流行趋势中。为了抵抗感受力的平面化与想象力的衰减,我们需要深入探索不同人群的生活样貌,尤其是那些处于边缘地带的人们。

Yalqun Galib (阿力), also known as many other names through out his creative journey, a certified teacher, independent artist, board game developer, short film maker… one thing he doesn’t like is to be labeled as this or that, those labels above would not be accurate as … another human being eagerly awaiting for recognition, acceptance and respect

Yalqun Galib(阿力),在他的创作之旅中也被称为许多其他名字,一名认证教师、独立艺术家、棋盘游戏开发者、短片制作人……他不喜欢被贴上这样或那样的标签, 上面的这些标签并不准确,因为……另一个人急切地等待着认可、接受和尊重

About poetry Songs store

关于诗歌商店

The Poetry Songs Store was founded by Ali and Xiaohai, a musician and a poet. It’s a community where everyone can share their love for poetry and music.

With poems and songs forged in the fires of life, we sought the deep affections lost in the margins, along with the grand and ancient desolate poetic sentiments.

诗歌商店是一个面对社会开放的公众诗与歌平台,由阿力和小海创立,在这里每个人都可以分享对诗歌的热情。

用在生存中滋滋淬火的诗与歌,打捞起那些边缘里被忽视的深情,及那些盛大而久远的荒凉诗意。
