Landscape is actually a kind of visual effect, which is usually interpreted as a scene of a region. With the continuous expansion of human activities and the deepening of commercialisation, the landscape of human society has become intuitive or more visible to the naked eye. For example, overwhelming commercial propaganda and widespread dissemination of videos and images, landscapes are becoming more and more alienated and humans have completely lost their resistance to widespread images or expanded things. To be honest, the landscape is kind of “Deceit”. It deliberately tries to figure out people’s minds, gain people’s approval. The people who are willing to stay on the surface and do not intend to explore the essence are obviously more than before. Whether it is a “Concentrated Spectacle”, a “Diffuse Spectacle”, or an Integrated Spectacle, it is a means of domination in society. so, what or how is the new relationship between landscape and people today?
景观，其实就是某种视觉效果，通常被解释为一个地区的景象，随着人类活动的不断扩张，并且随着商业化的深入，人类社会的景观化也变得越来越直观，也就是越来越肉眼可见。比如铺天盖地的商业宣传，影像和图像形式的广泛传播，景观越来越趋于异化，人类对某种广泛扩张的来势汹汹的图像或者事物完全失去了抵抗力。实话说，景观完全是个幌子，它处心积虑地揣摩着人们的心思，获得人们的认同，而甘于停留于表象而无意探究本质的人在今天显然要比以往都要多。无论是集中的景观（Concentrated Spectacle）、弥散的景观（Diffuse Spectacle），还是综合的景观（Integrated Spectacle），都可谓社会中的统治手段。那么，如今景观和人的新关系到底如何？
Luo Mingjun, lives in Switzerland since 31 years. She is an artist who commutes between two different cultures. Previously, she obtained a complete academic education in Hunan province in China. In the early 1980s, when 85 New Wave has risen in China, young artists adopted the method of western contemporary art and applied “readymade products” to their works. Take a pioneering attitude, subvert or criticise the concepts of obsolete art. When she moved to Switzerland in 1987, during living and working in a foreign country, the inner conflict and anxiety of self-identity in the two different cultures became big subjects that the artist had to think about. Facing the transformation of ideology and cultural identity caused by two opposing cultural environments, she created an intermediate zone for her own dialogue and communication, a “Third Space”, or a “No Man’s Land” and got attention. Luo Mingjun will present the process and experience of her creation through the interpretation of some of her works in the lecture.
Li Wei, born in 1981 in Beijing, is a visual artist who currently lives and works in Beijing, China. He received his BA from the Sculpture department at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2007. Lí Wei adopts a hyperrealistic style in his sculptures, focusing on conveying the emotions of the figures. The objective and clinical themes in Lí’s works reveal his doubts in human nature, and of humanity’s cruelty and ignorance. His work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions including Nobody Cares, Red Brick Art Museum, Beijing (2015); Peace, Primo Marella Gallery, Milan (2014); Hero, Today Art Museum, Beijing (2011). Currently he joins the exhibition “Mirrors – The Reflected Self” with the artwork “Hi” in Museum Rietberg in Zurich.
