美国当代作家苏珊·桑塔格用“土星气质”来描画以本雅明为代表的这类思想家的精神肖像。土星是“一颗充满迂回曲折、耽搁停留的行星”，它携带着忧郁症和孤独症患者的特质，沉迷于宇宙孤独的漩涡之中，自我漫步、幻想、依赖于梦。三位艺术家的创作中恰恰都渗透着这种“土星式”的敏锐，陈丹笛子和林钰玘又曾师从秦晋，本文将带领大家从作品出发，挖掘她们各自独特的风格和内容。This exhibition borrows its title from contemporary American writer Susan Sontag's work "Under the Sign of Saturn". Sontag uses the phrase "saturnine temperament" to depict the spiritual portrait of intellectuals such as Benjamin. Saturn is "the planet of detours and delays". It carries the characteristics of patients with depression and autism, indulged in the vortex of loneliness in the universe, drifting alone, fantasizing, and relying on dreams... The exhibition aims to discuss how the artist's extremely gloomy and saturnine characteristics have a decisive influence on his work. This “Saturnine” keenness is infiltrated in the creations of the three artists. The melancholic person will become the biggest addict, because the truly addictive experience is always a lonely experience. They project such desire into the zeal of "Turning Back to Self-reading", "Capturing the Senses of Nature" and "Chasing the Truth of Self".

陈丹笛子依旧把自我的疏离带入到作品中，既化身为城市中一个孤独的人，也化身为城市中的一只鸟，探讨在城市与自然紧密状态当中彼此的欲望和缺失。她从城市之间的变化无常的、敏锐的、微妙的关系中逐渐生成自己大量的情感，并迷失于其中。陈丹笛子1990年生于广西贺州，2015年毕业于广州美术学院油画系获学士学位，现工作和生活在广州。创作涉及录像、装置、摄影及文学。她的近期作品探讨的是在与自然或人工的日常现象偶然遭遇时的感知和体验，其中不乏疏离的人类情感，以及希望通过对自然的观察和想象来获取疏离之外的宽慰。Chen Dandizi still brings the alienation of the self into the work, Incarnating as a lonely person or a bird in the city, and discusses each other's desires and deficiencies in the tight state between the urban and nature. She gradually generated a lot of emotions from the fickle, keen, and delicate relationships between cities, and got lost in it.Chen Dandizi was born in Hezhou, Guangxi in 1990. She graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts with a bachelor's degree in 2015. She currently lives and works in Guangzhou. Her creation involves video, installation, photography, and literature.

在秦晋的叙事中，记忆，作为往昔的重现，将一幕幕旅途中的平凡时刻变成一幅幅画面。时间在回忆中成了一种约束和不足，把对自我的回忆压缩成空间，压缩成先兆的结构，营造一个关于失败的纯洁景象。秦晋1976年出生于中国广州。2003年毕业于广州美术学院油画系，获硕士学位，现任教于广州美术学院绘画艺术学院。秦晋的作品媒介多样，主要有绘画、影像、装置及文本写作。她用独特的视角体察个人历史如何附着在意识形态环境中从而产生复杂的变化。In Qin Jin's narrative, memory, as a reappearance of the past, turns the ordinary moments in every scene of the journey into pictures. Time has become a constraint and deficiency in memories, compressing the memories of the self into space and a precursory structure, creating a pure scene of failure.Qin Jin was born in Guangzhou, China in 1976. She graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2003 with a master's degree. She currently teaches at the School of Fine Arts of GAFA. Qin Jin's works cover a variety of medium, such as painting, video, installation and text writing. She discusses through a unique perspective how personal history attaches to the ideological environment and results in complex changes.
