叠层与漂砾 Stratums and Erratics Part1 (2023), Single-Channel Video (color, sound), 33'36"

 

程新皓试图顺着滇缅路将一块石头踢至缅甸,在过程中穿越道路和历史形成的地层:320国道覆盖在滇缅路上,滇缅路覆盖在明清驿路上,明清驿路覆盖在更早的滇西马路、博南山道上…与此平行的还有一段成昆线、杭瑞高速和未曾存在过的滇缅铁路。而人和石头在横向上被搬运,处在不断的磨损中,出现在偶然的境遇中。这次行程完成了四分之一时因为艺术家的跟腱撕裂而暂时中断。在这里展示的是昆明至南华之间的行走。

Cheng Xinhao tries to kick a stone down the Burma Road to Burma. Along the way, he crosses the stratums of roads and histories: the no.320 National Road overlays the Burma Road, the Burma Road overlays the post roads of the Ming and Qing dynasties, and the post roads overlay the earlier Western Yunnan Horse Road and the Bonan Mountain Road... Furthermore, parallel to these is a section of the Chengdu-Kunming Railway, the Hangzhou-Ruili Highway, and the never-finished Burma-Yunnan Railway. The artist and his stones move laterally like erratics, in a constant state of wear and tear, appearing in fortuitous encounters.  A quarter of the way through this trip was temporarily interrupted by the artist's torn Achilles tendon. Shown here is the finished walk between Kunming and Nanhua.
