It is such a joy to walk into a gallery and find myself entranced. Add coincidence to the general good fortune of the day: Ma Yongfeng himself was at the gallery on the Sunday afternoon that I visited, which helped to further illuminate the works.

I was immediately drawn to the video “The Storm” which, on closer inspection, subtly reveals itself to be a constructed flood of water over a miniature topology, complete with miniature dwellings. The set is filmed from a single vantage point, and the lighting is sparse, at times flickering like lightening. The position of the camera places the viewer in the direct path of the flowing water. There is a sense of witnessing disaster, yet the conscious mind is distinctly aware of the artificiality. Nature, so often personified as having a fickle disposition, is recreated on the set as water animated by physical forces. And yet, as the viewer imagines the set as a life-size flood, a tinge of fear is added to the equation and nature is once again a personality unto itself.

The title of the show, “Becoming Landscape,” hints at how the artist wants us to see ourselves in these sets. The photographs of the series “Origin of Species” are life-sized sets, constructed to evoke zoo displays. Usually, at the zoo, these sets would be inhabited by what might be termed by Darwinists as creatures of lesser evolutionary achievements. But left empty and photographed for a human audience, they seem to invite the viewer to become a specimen. As our actions re-create the landscapes we inhabit, Ma Yongfeng’s images invite the question: what kinds of cages are we building for ourselves?

IS: Be specific – What were the expectations and reactions from the viewers regarding the creations of European/U.S. artists?

FW: Our Thai audience was impressed by several works--mainly I would say due to visual attributes. And here are a few examples:

Alfred Banze, Banyan Project, Germanycomment: "It’s nice to see so many people around the world collaborate in one project." (multinational project, performances)

Natalia Borissova, series of graphics from VJ performances, Russiacomment: "Cute images!" (reaction to pixelated c-prints )

Hermelinde Hergenhahn, Day in Day out, Hollandcomment: "Wow, so much machines but the concept is good." "How much all this cost?" (video installation that recorded events during daytime and projected them to the street back at nighttime)

Kris Delacourt + Nico Dockx + Peter Verwimp + Christopher Musgrave, Building Transmissions, video and noise music performance, Belgiumcomment: "Interesting, but I don’t understand" (reaction to noise performance; also, some people could not stand the flickering visuals).

Ma Yongfeng, Swirl, video art, Chinacomment: "Did the fish die?" (video showing goldfish washed in a washing machine for 15 minutes, a statement over condition of artists in china)

Calin Man Esoth Eric interactive installation, Romaniacomment: "I do not know how to play this game" (computer installation, unexpected digital interface)

Przemyslaw Moskal, Virtual and Real: K-Dron and Light, interactive 3D in shockwave offline version, USAcomment: "This is amazing!" (real time 3D graphics)

Anouk De Clercq + Anton Aeki + Joris Cool, Building, video, Belgiumcomment: "Wow, I never thought architecture can look like art." (3D model of architectural interiors. Only walls, columns, no other props, lit by moving light sources. Perfect motion compositions, perfect rendering, black & white video)

Juhani Koivumäki, Self-portrait, video, Finlandcomment: "Do you think Thai people will understand what you were going through?" (finish director express mental issues on film, hard and personal)

Christian Hogue, motion graphics, video/lecture: where industry meet the arts, UKcomment: "This is very good and very interesting." (reaction to hi-end motion graphics presentations, excerpts from art and commercial special effects as used in commercials)

One piece that really impacted me was MA Yongfeng’s video. In the video, we see a number of different animals, whom all appear to be in cages, seemingly at some kind of zoo. The main focus of the video seemed to be the caged gorillas and animals viewed through a circle. We follow the gorillas through numerous shots, one of which seems to be carrying a baby on her back for protection. To me, this video seemed to be trying to show us the grim life of living in the zoo and how it is to be caged. I think that this is symbolic for China. The artist might have felt caged or trapped somehow, unable to escape from his life in China, or the changes which are occurring, or something else that he cannot escape from. Similarly, when I went upstairs, MA Yongfeng also had a digital piece “Immaterialism Garden”, of what looked to be a monkey cage. I could tell right away that it was done by the same artist, and trying to relate the same message. The message of a cage, and some fate of which you cannot escape. This artist was by far my favorite; simply because he expressed his feelings in a way that did not just take digital photos or still frames, he sent his message out using something else; animals at the zoo.

I found Ma Yong-Feng’s “Beijing Zoological Garden” to be very interesting. I noticed many different skills and techniques being used in the film. The first thing I noticed about the video is that while I was watching it I felt a sense of anticipation. I felt like I was waiting for one of the animals to go crazy. After watching more of the film I realized that the animals were not going to go crazy. However, I felt the anticipation of something to come. I then tried to figure out why the film was giving me this reaction. The first thing I noticed was the music. The music that was playing gave it a dramatic mood. Another thing I noticed was that the film was in slow motion. The slow motion gave the film a dream like atmosphere. It gave the film an appearance of something from another world or dimension. The next thing I noticed was the colors. The hazy greenish tinted color were colors that you do not normally view things through. The color selection that the artist used also made me feel anxious, but it reminded me of colors from a dreamy state. Since the picture you were viewing was in a circle some of the image was always cut out. This also added to the mysteriousness of the film.
