2017年11月,来自全球的15000名科学家发布了一封名为《世界科学家对人类的警告:第二次通知》的署名信,旨在提醒人类关注气候变化。1年后的今天,PEJAC展示了他的最新作品“漂泊的陆地”——一口漂浮在大西洋公海上的老式水井,借此来表达他对于陆地与海洋的忧思。

Almost one year to date since the unprecedented “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice,” a letter issued and signed by 15,000 scientists from around the world in November 2017, Pejac has decided to present his latest thought-provoking intervention Land Adrift. Once again reaching towards the list of his recurring motifs and imagery, this time he placed an old-fashioned water well in the open seas of the Atlantic. Installed offshore from his native Cantabria in northern Spain, the piece is reflecting the artist’s worry about the land and sea that are tirelessly going adrift.

PEJAC长期致力于指出人类对地球造成的不可逆影响,此次他再一次脱离了画架和工作室,转而创造出一个惊人的、“扭转现实”的艺术作品。“漂泊的陆地”展示了一种“不太可能但理论上可行”的情景:水井象征着一个健康的人类社区,一种普遍意义上的生存资源,但现在,它漂浮在起伏的海面中间,成为一种令人不安的、末世幻想般的存在。

Continuously working towards pointing out at the frightening pace at which humans are irreversibly affecting the planet, Pejac once again stepped away from his easel and studio to create this surprising, reality-twisting intervention. Presenting another one of the “unlikely but theoretically possible” scenarios, a repeated concept in his practice, the universal symbol of a healthy community and the literal source of life was placed in the middle of high seas as a disturbing mirage of a post-apocalyptic future.

该作品可以有多种不同的解释,其中最明显的便是对于海平面上升(气候变化带来的最主要后果)以及清洁水资源匮乏的警示。“这项作品反映了一些令我感到担忧的事情,但首先,它讲述的是漂浮的、不可控制的陆地与海洋”——PEJAC

Suggesting a range of different interpretations, probably the most obvious one is the warning about the rise of the water levels, one of the most evident outcomes of climate change, as well as the lack of access to clean water. “This work reflects several things that worry me about the current state of the world, but first of all, it talks about the land and the sea which are wandering adrift.”- PEJAC
