Rock and Cliff: The Geological Surface of Horn Town

碛石与危岩:羊角镇的地表现实

影片借用一种伪科教片的形式,通过喋喋不休地描述一些场景来展开叙事,而这些不同的描述方式在不断的相互撕扯间被编织在一起。余果通过对羊角镇的田野考察并邀请他人共同写作,用看似对地质地表的描述把羊角镇的历史与现实串联起来,探讨当下的土地政策,文化打造以及乡村建设有关的现实。

His video essay ‘Rock and Cliff' investigates the creation of Horn Town, a new model village and centre of large scale tourist development, and the experiences of rural residents moved there through government-led displacement. Horn Town is located in Wulong, a rural district near the Three Gorges Dam administered by the Chongqing municipality (a city of 30 million people). Narrated in the style of a science documentary but using local Chongqing dialect, the video brings a geological and topographical perspective to types of 'rocks' found in the area,from mythological stones from a mountain cliff, to ruins of the original settlement, to a stone sculpture
from a dubious 'Land Art Biennial', in order to address issues of land acquisition, top-down development and spatial politic.
