The Rare Event

稀有事件

在巴黎一家老旧的、木地板的录音室,有一场为期三天的“思想论坛”,聚焦于“抵抗力”(琼-弗朗索瓦·利奥塔尔为其1983年的“非物质”未完成后续展览而起的名称)的多种可能性,本·里弗斯和本·拉塞尔的偶然合作产生了一个最初看起来像是全面探讨哲学的结构主义文档。这一“外在衡量标准”自然具有欺骗性,在沉浸式5.1混响、绿人、绿人形的无限空间、动态数字特效(由美国艺术家彼得·波尔提供)和一群了不起的思想家、评论家、策展人、艺术家的帮助下,一个有抵抗力的文档慢慢变成稀有事件——一个整合了所有维度的接口。

Shot in a creaky, wooden-floored Parisian recording studio at an inaugural three-day “forum of ideas” focusing on the manifold possibilities of “Resistance” (the title of Jean-François Lyotard’s unrealized follow-up exhibition to his 1983 “Les Immateriaux”), occasional collaborators Ben Rivers and Ben Russell have produced what initially appears to be a structuralist document of a philosophical discussion in-the-round. This “appearance dimension” is deceptive, of course, and with the aid of an immersive 5.1 sound-mix, a Green Man, a Green-Man-shaped-Infinite-Void, a dose of kinetic digital magic (courtesy of US-based artist Peter Burr), and an impressive cast of thinkers, critics, curators, and artists, a document of Resistance slowly transforms into The Rare Event – a portal that joins all dimensions into one.
