A work by Huang Kui at ‘DIAL ‘62761232’.

《快遞展》中黃奎的參展作品。藝術家自述:
“寫有‘62761232快遞藝術展快遞員黃奎’的胸卡,每個快遞員一個。當觀眾抽到我的名字時,快遞員便戴好我給他們的胸卡,並對觀眾說:“我就是黃奎,我的作品就是傳遞整個展覽”。我的這個作品是想探討關於身份置換和藝術的問題!在展覽中,他們變成詞語意義上的‘黃奎’,而我用‘黃奎’的名詞作為快遞員的假名時,快遞員卻在真正意義上完成了這樣的轉換:他們的平常快遞工作轉換為藝術行為!這與我最初的參展方案理念基本一致,最初,我的作品方案是快遞對觀眾每說一句話之前都要加上‘黃奎說’三個字,用這三個字我便輕松的完成了對所有快遞員話語權的控制,當一個快遞的每句話都變成一種轉述時,快遞員的身份則十分尷尬,他們的話語因為都是“黃奎說”的,也許就會顯得莫名其妙、可笑和荒誕。快遞員傳遞的是權力!”

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.
