About FILM BY ARTIST
Established in 2016, “Film by Artist” is a non-profit program inviting contemporary artists to make short films, which are aimed at introducing artistic concepts and languages from diverse contemporary artists to a much broader audience through the media of short films, and it also explores the possibilities of creating linkages between the concept of “video work” in a contemporary art context and the idea of “film” in the wider cultural industry level. Meanwhile, it provides artists with a working platform that is differentiated from the present exhibition system in the art world and, thus, effectively stimulates the creative energy within the contemporary field of art by introducing alternative tastes and inspirations.

影片讲述了一个年轻艺术家慢慢接受日常生活的心理过程， 35岁的艺术家段术一 开着车带着他的朋友，他们有着共同的经历和现实遭遇，相互了解又充满分歧。随着年龄的增长，他们的幻想渐渐被日常生活击碎——他们虽然难以接受回到体制内混日子的教师生活，但也无法承受工作环境的被动的变迁带来的动荡不安。以前年轻充满自由的生活不能再延续下去，他们不得不回到体制内接受一份按部就班的工作。段术一这影子般的朋友在影片的结尾处道出段术一的往事，他们的生活就此融为一体。
The film recounts the story of a young artist who gradually comes to term with the mundanity of life. The 35-year-old artist, Duan Shuyi is driving with his friend. They share similar experiences in life, they understand each other, and they agree to disagree. As they grow older, their dreams and fantasies are shattered by the burdens of everyday life — They find it hard to go back to dawdling within the teaching system, yet they cannot deal with the anxiety from living a volatile life of impelled turbulence. They have to give up the young and free lifestyle and conform to structure. At the end of the film, as Duan’s shadow-like friend recounts an old story, their lives merge.
