封城来信

当前的新型冠状病毒肺炎疫情已导致中国及全球多地的许多活动中断,迫使许多人在家中或疾控中心指定地点隔离。

我们身在英国很难了解疫情地区的真实处境,看到每日主流媒体上国与国之间就这一问题的相互指责,以及社交媒体上来源不明的信息迅速传播,都加深了人们的困惑。

封城来信 希望在受封锁影响的中国地区寻找艺术家在纸上绘画,绘画或诗歌以及其他表达方式。根据提交的数量,“锁定”中的“邮政”将选择以在线,出版物形式或展览形式展示作品。进一步的细节将在后面介绍。

参展作品要求:必须是艺术家在疫情期间的封城处境中创作的作品,邮寄作品尺幅不超过一个A4信封(21x 29厘米),重量不超过100克。

我们希望艺术家邮寄作品原件。

如果邮寄无法实现,可以通过email发送作品照片。亦可发送视频、图片及文字作品至post@grandine.co.uk

提交的作品最多包括三张图片,以及艺术家的姓名,电子邮件地址,作品的日期以及用于作品的媒介/材料。您可以选择对作品进行简短说明,也可以选择指向艺术家网站的链接。

通过邮寄和电子邮件发送作品的截止日期为2020年3月30日。

我们正在建立一份集体档案,作品会先在Grandine进行展示,我们还在讨论进一步的呈现方式,取决于我们最终收到作品的数量和材质。

展览结束之后,你可以选择把作品留给我作为记录这一历史时刻的集体档案,也可以要求我通过平邮返还给你。需要返还作品的艺术家在邮寄时请附上一个写有自己收信地址的信封。

目的是在给定时间段内吸引尽可能多的受锁定影响的艺术家。请分享这封电子邮件,如有任何疑问,请随时与我们联系。我们也正在为伦敦的项目寻找志愿者-翻译文字稿和其他行政帮助。如果您想抽出时间参与该项目,请与我们联系。

我们会定期将最新进展告知所有艺术家。感谢大家付出宝贵时间参与这个项目。

Post from the Lockdown

The current Coronavirus epidemic has caused disruption to many activities in China and all over the world, forcing people to stay home or in quarantine centres.

It is very hard from the UK to understand what the reality of the situation is, when media of various countries have been accusing each other of propaganda or cover-ups, and misinformation is viral across social media.

Post from the Lockdown is looking for drawings, paintings or poems on paper, as well as other forms of expression, by artists in areas of China affected by the lockdown. Depending on the quantity of submissions, Post from the Lockdown will choose to show the works either online, in publication format or as an exhibition. Further details of this will ensue.

Contributions must be produced exclusively during the Coronavirus outbreak by people who endured the lockdown. Works should fit into an envelope with a maximum size of A4 (21x 29 cm) and maximum weight 100 g.

The preference is for physical letters to be posted. If post is not an option, artists can send images of their work by email to post@grandine.co.uk and they can be printed on A4 black and white paper.

Submissions must include a maximum of three images, along with the artist’s name, email address, date of the work, and medium/materials used for the work. A brief description of the work and a link to the artist’s website is optional.

The deadline for works to be sent by post and emails sent is 30th March, 2020.

Artists wishing for their work to be returned should include an envelope addressed to themselves. If so, then works will be returned via standard postal methods and not as express or courier.

The aim is to reach as many artists affected by the lockdown in the given time period. Please share this email and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. We are also looking for volunteers for the project in London — for translation of text contributions and other administrative help. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer your time to the project.
