A work by Jiang Zhi +Wa Wa at ‘DIAL ‘62761232’.

《快遞展》中蒋志+Wa Wa的參展作品。藝術家自述:
“據社會科學院不久前進行的社會調查顯示,近七成的城市居民對食品安全表示擔憂。北京一位主管食品安全的局長在接受央視記者訪問的時候,坦言自己也不知道每日所吃的食物是否安全。CCTV《每周質量報告》欄目幾乎每一期都會曝光一樣問題食品。這張荒謬的菜單就是當下中國城市居民每天三餐所面對的現實。沒有人可以宣稱自己完全幸免,除非他只在家中用餐,且嚴格食用自己種植的蔬菜、水果、糧食。而一旦這麼做,他其實也就等同於農民。
在網上查資料時,我們一次又一次驚訝於同胞的大膽和創意:沒有什麼他們做不出的,沒有什麼他們想不到的!以養殖螃蟹為例。正常情況下,一只大閘蟹成蟹要兩年時間。現在,在化學養殖法下面,一只蟹從蟹苗到上市只需一年,中間要經歷十種藥物的喂養,包括氯霉素、土霉素、痢特靈、諾氟沙星、恩諾沙星、病毒靈、多西霉素、乙烯雌酚、消毒水等,以殺菌、增重等。一位養蟹場主表示,投藥的次數和份量都有講究,‘瞎放會出事的’。他所謂‘出事’指的是蟹苗死亡,不是食用蟹的人健康受損。食品安全危機是轉型期中國社會金錢至上,法紀松弛,道德低迷,人情冷漠和長期實行城鄉二元制的結果。換句話說,城裡人活該。我們害怕,但我們也沒有辦法,除了拿這件事開一個玩笑。”

Context

Dial 62761232 was the name of an express delivery company that worked with a group of Shanghai-based artists to bring the exhibition to the homes of audience members. The delivery company assigned 15 couriers to the task, who were trained at the BizArt Center. Each courier was given a suicase with a number of works by the artists. Each of the 15 suitcases contained the same works, and each participating artist was identified by name. When a courier delivered the exhibition via suitcase, the viewer would have to choose number in order to see the works.
