马海蛟的三频影像《家庭分裂主义》源于他偶然收集到的一封家庭信件,信件内容隐约反映出不同代际家庭成员之间的隔阂与困惑。从这封信出发,作者试图再现信件所指涉的家庭状态,并由此以“伪纪实”方式塑造3个截然不同的人物形象——青年的服役士兵、患有眼疾的中年生意人与信仰基督教的老年知识分子——分别对应着3个代际,围绕“家庭性”的变迁乃至瓦解而折射中国当代社会中个体的生存状态。延续其以往的影像风格,纪实感、摆拍、场景重现、画外音等手法恰当地运用至作品中,以耐人寻味的细节与表现性的风格营造出诗意的氛围。这件作品与信件等相关实物共同呈现。

The three-channel video installation Family Separatism originated in a letter Ma Haijiao accidentally received. The content of this missive subtly reflected the estrangement and confusion between different generations within a single family. Ma re-enacts the situations described in the letter, creating three characters and depicting their lives as a pseudo-documentary. They include a young soldier serving in the army, a middle-aged businessman with an eye disease, and an old, Christian intellectual, each belonging to a different generation. Ma traces the evolution of this family drama, even to its collapse, to reflect the social conditions of contemporary Chinese society. A documentary style more broadly conceived, the work also incorporates staged re-enactments, voice-overs, and other devices to create a poetic, emotive atmosphere.

尊敬的爷爷:

      你好!新年快乐!虽然你和爸爸的关系搞了很紧张,原因就是你看不起我爸爸和妈妈是残疾人,不过他们两个人是人残心不残,像他们两个人应该是全亲戚朋友学习的榜样。如果我们都把他们的精神拿到某一个人来用的话那就是一笔丰富的财富,如果我能像他们吃得起苦我就是一名大学生,更有可能是一名研究生,就是我怕吃苦才会变成很普通的技校生,我真的感到很后悔。

     我现在在部队里懂了一个道理,那就是搞团结,团结就是力量,又会变成钢。我希望我们家里人也要团结,全家人一团结以后才不会给别人看不起。我现在和战士关系都很好,都很团结,我有困难他们就会帮助我,他们有困难我就会帮助他们,在部队就是要团结一致。我也希望家里的亲人在你的教育下搞好团结,不要用心机对待亲人,要以诚相待。同时请你把自己的思想观念改变过来,不要搞家庭分裂主义,如果你看了这封信后对你有一定的教育意义,就把所有的姑姑,伯伯和我爸爸妈妈叫到一起开个家庭会议,落实好全家们团结一致。

       好了!我的时间很宝贵,没有多少有空的时间,因为我要每天参加连队的训练,教育。

      祝你!

      身体健康,多喝老酒,多吸烟,每天笑哈哈!

《家庭分裂主义》信件

Family Separatism, letter

Dear Grandpa:

    I hope you’re well, and Happy New Year! I know you and Dad do not get along with each other, being that you despise him and mum for being disabled. But they’re only physically disabled, not mentally. People like them should be regarded as role models for our family and friends. If we push ourselves like them, it would be a priceless fortune. If I could bear hardships like they do, I’d have been a college student, or even a graduate student. It’s only because I’m afraid of hardships that I ended up becoming just an ordinary student at a technical school. I really deeply regret this.

 

     One thing I learnt from my service here in the army is the value of unity, for unity is strength, and this strength is harder than steel. I hope that our family can stand in unity too, only so that others can’t look down at us. I get on really well with my comrades and our unity is strong, so if I had any problems they’d help me, and I would do the same the other way around. Soldiers should always stay united in the army. I also hope that my loved ones at home would stay in unity under your wise guidance. Do not play tricks with each other. Treat each other with honesty. Also, you should really change your opinions on things, and don’t try to start familial separatism! If you feel in anyway moved after reading this, please gather all the aunties, uncles, and my dad and mum for a family meeting, and make sure that the family stay united.

 

     All right! My time is limited. I don't have much free time because of the daily military trainings and classes.

 

Hope you would

Stay healthy! Stay drinking! Stay smoking! Stay laughing!
