高速占卜法:人间传说之动物成语占卜卡 


High Speed Divination: Cards of Chinese Animal Idioms

山河跳!选取了汉语中与动物有关的常用成语、俗语,重新设计制作成用以占卜或给人以当下启示的49张纸牌,从中我们可以看到中国古人是怎样以动物来比喻人的处境,同样的类比方式在《周易》中也有体现。49张卡分为7组,从“龙生九子”开始,到“乌飞兔走”描述时间飞逝结束,有个体的成长、历练与循环之意。纸牌占卜的方式在今天同处流行文化与神秘文化的塔罗牌里常见,而中文的“卜筮”、卜问也有源远流长的历史。山河跳!以“纸牌”这种轻质和图形化的方式测试东方文化基因和“占卜”结合的结果,也传达对泛个人的心理需要、叙事方式的好奇。


Mountain River Jump! has chosen 49 Chinese animal idioms from dictionary, then illustrated for them and made them into 49 divinatory cards. We can see how our ancestors described human’s situation through animal idioms. This kind of metaphors can be also found in Zhou Yi. These 49 cards can be distributed into 7 groups, from 0 The dragon’s nine distinguished sons to 48 Time flies like a golden crow and runs like a jade rabbit, including different stages of personal growth. For example, some of the cards are telling stories about new born, development, fights, reflections and rebirth. Divinatory cards are common in human culture while Tarot Cards are the most popular. In China, there is also a long history of divination. Mountain River Jump! is using Cards of Chinese Animal Idioms to see what will come out when eastern cultural genes mix with fortunetelling in the context of contemporary world. Meanwhile, they have strong curiosity towards human psychology and of individuals’ narration.

水螅,一种接近无限再生与繁殖的生物,生物学家发现它们几乎长生不老。泡泡形成搅珠彩球漂浮在水中,隐藏着人类无解的密码。

Hydra attracts biologists because of their regenerative ability – they do not appear to die of old age, or indeed to age at all. Bubbles transform into lottery balls, floating in water, concealing the codes which human could not decode.

黄河取法于传说起源于唐代的“墨池法”,以纸张记录墨水瞬间的流动形态激发观者的自由联想;类比起运用在精神病学中著名的“罗夏墨迹测验”,她相信流墨印下的图案也能测试出人类的精神特质。每张画上有艺术家的荧光签名。


Huang He’s works are inspired from a particular ink-painting method, which is believed to have originated in the Tang Dynasty, named Ink Pool. By using paper to record the instantaneous moments of the flowing ink, she tries to evoke free association in the viewers’ mind. Analogous to the famous Rorschach Inkblot Test in psychiatry, she assumes the patterns of the ink flows can tell the spiritual characteristics of human beings. There is a fluorescent signature from the artist on each drawing.

Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo founded in 2016 by twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He, who were born in 1985. The duo has a variety of creative formats in art, often applying "divination consulting" as a performance to examine the potential of such art medium, and to interact with the audience at the intrinsic level. With their studies into Oriental mysticism and folklore, the artists pry open the topics of identity politics, labor issues, feminism, life politics, modernity and others. They pay attention to the embodiment of mythological clues in a daily context, attempting to carry out "psychoanalysis" of the reality, and reflecting on the materialist culture within modern China and its psychological status. Huang Shan and Huang He presently work and live in Foshan, Guangdong. 

Their practice was introduced by ArtAsiaPacific. Recent participated projects of Mountain River Jump! include: Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2020 Regional Cooperation Project, Tokyo; Sunset on a Dead End, Power Station of Art (PSA), Shanghai; The Force Temple, Tank Shanghai; Waves wash away the sand FM, UCCA Dune, Beidaihe; Glow Like That, Victoria Dockside, K11 Art Foundation, Hong Kong; DOJO le temple de l'abstraction, Le Commun, Genéva; GENDERS ENGENDER, Taikang Space, Beijing, etc. They are going to take part in We Do Not Dream Alone, Asia Society Triennial, New York in 2021.
