11,565 Kilometres project

2018-2019

11,565 Kilometres project was containing nearly one half-hour long essay film and one photography book of historical sites, portraits, and cultural relics, even a three-dimensional sculpture and aims to explore some issues related to the circulation of artifacts, the complexity of colonial history, and the problems of archaeological museum collection systems.

The name of this project 11,565 Kilometers, is the physical distance of the path of an artifact from Shandong province (China) to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (USA). In May 2018, the artist began to research this Chinese artifact at the Penn Museum: A Coffin Fragment (object#: 40-35-4) located in the Asian Art Pavilion. In June 2018 and January 2019, the artist went twice to China for field investigations. With the help of some archaeologists and historians, He found that the artifact had a historical connection to some German colonizers and a Japanese artifact dealer. Then, the artist expanded the research on the path of the coffin fragment including artifact unearthing, sales, shipping and acquisitions in its world. During the investigation, a visual archive for Object#:40-35-4 was built, which roughly rebuilds the artifacts journey from China to the Penn Museum.

Including: A photography book,  A photography installation (old photos, soil, and rocks  from the historical site );One channel 4K video (color and sound), 28 mins; One channel video(color and sound),4 mins; One 3D Print sculpture.

11,565公里项目

11,565公里项目包含近半个半小时的论文电影和一本摄影书,包括历史遗迹,肖像和文物,甚至是三维雕塑,旨在探讨与跨国的文物流通,殖民地的复杂历史,以及考古博物馆收藏系统的问题。

这个项目的名称为11,565公里,是从山东省(中国)到宾夕法尼亚大学考古与人类学博物馆(美国)的物理距离。 2018年5月,艺术家开始在宾夕法尼亚博物馆研究这件中国文物:位于亚洲艺术馆的棺材碎片(物体编号#:40-35-4)。 2018年6月和2019年1月,艺术家两次到中国进行实地调查。在一些考古学家和历史学家的帮助下,发现这件神器与一些德国殖民者和一位日本神器经销商有历史联系。然后,艺术家扩展了对棺材片段路径的研究,包括其世界中的工件挖掘,销售,运输和收购。在调查期间,建立了文物编号#:40-35-4的视觉档案,大致重建了从中国到宾夕法尼亚博物馆的文物流通旅程。
