Cycling Wheel: The Orchestra

2017

Installation, Performance, Light

Artist Statement

“To see that wheel turning was very soothing, very comforting…I enjoyed looking at it, just as I enjoy looking at the flames dancing in a fireplace.”

Marcel Duchamp elaborate how he liked watching audience to spin the wheel of his work Bicycle Wheel in the exhibition – and audience can’t even touch it after the first exhibition , indeed.
This is the first work of Marcel’s ready made object, interaction-welcome in its original character, it never been touched and spin, and the concept has been borrowing by artists for years.

“Cycling Wheel” borrows the concept of Marcel’s Bicycle Wheel, re-activate the wheel into a dynamic and interactive one, transforms its mechanics into a sound and light controller, turns Bicycle Wheel into a performative instrument, embeds the wheel with audio and lighting, creating the dancing flame just as described by Marcel Duchamp.

“Cycling Wheel: The Orchestra” brings 3 sets of “Cycling Wheel” to the stage, and become the instrument of light beam, light strip and music, compose a multi-media performance of a remade of ready-made master piece.

藝術家論述

“To see that wheel turning was very soothing, very comforting…I enjoyed looking at it, just as I enjoy looking at the flames dancing in a fireplace.”
Marcel Duchamp 這樣說他如此喜歡看到作品 Bicycle Wheel 展出時被觀眾直接轉動 -即使後來的展出觀眾都沒能再轉到它。

Duchamp 的首件以現成物而成的作品,本來就被鼓勵互動的 Bicycle Wheel,一直被冷藏沒有動過,歷年被藝術家們重塑及概念借用。

《 Cycling Wheel 》借用這件現成作品,把被靜態的輪子重新安排運作,同時將運作的動態和規劃轉換成聲音和光影的控制器,把 Bicycle Wheel 重塑成表演工具,把燈光和聲音結合在輪子上,創造和杜象口中像跳舞的火燄。

《 Cycling Wheel : The Orchestra 》將三台 《 Cycling Wheel 》帶到表演台,分別成為了燈條,光束和聲音的控制器,演奏一場來自 ready-made 重塑的新媒體表演。
