在2021年威尼斯国际建筑双年展的“我们如何一起游戏”单元(策展人:Hashim Sarkis) ,艺术家Matěj Hájek(SKULL studio)和Tereza Kučerová(MOLO architekti)带来了他们合作的装置作品“跨越栅栏”(OFF FENCE)。作为对本届双年展大主题“我们将如何共同生活”的回应,该作品在探讨“分隔”的同时,提出了如何克服障碍的挑战。

Matěj Hájek (SKULL studio) and Tereza Kučerová (MOLO architekti) present the OFF FENCE installation at the Biennale Architettura 2021 curated by Hashim Sarkis, in the section How will we play together? at Forte Marghera. The play element is a response to the main theme of the exhibition How will we live together? by manifesting the theme of separation and as a challenge to overcome obstacles.

“跨越栅栏”(OFF FENCE)装置位于展场中的一个独特位置,它横跨于既有的砾石路径,从而体现出分离的内涵。“我们选择了一种对抗性的表达方式,通过横穿道路,我们将障碍物转化为一种突破桎梏的冲动。”该装置的创作者、雕塑家Matěj Hájek如此解释道。

A fence is a symbol of separation. Throughout all historical developments, society has been divided by various forms of walls, either physically, geographically, culturally or socially. If we ask ourselves the question How will we live together?, it is necessary first of all to realise what divides us. What stands between us and the state we are striving to achieve?

The installation OFF FENCE is place in a radical location, cutting across the existing gravel path, thereby manifesting the phenomenon of separation. “We choose a confrontational tone. We cut across the path. We transform an obstacle into an impulse. An impulse for change,” states the author, the sculptor Matěj Hájek.

An obstacle is placed in the path for visitors to the Architecture Biennale – a wooden fence. If visitors wish to continue on their way, they are forced to address the situation. They have the option of giving up and turning back, or walking round the obstacle, or going through the installation. Within the context we have formulated, this physical act takes on a symbolic meaning: it enables visitors to enter the obstacle, and thereby to enter the problem. “Through the medium of play we take a bold step. We drive the dynamo of change through our own initiative. The game is an initiation of change. By entering the physical body of the obstacle, visitors overcome themselves,” describes Hájek.

The installation is formed by four “fences” made of larch wood profiles, which progressively incline from the vertical axis. The “fences” are mutually interconnected with sloping platforms, which enable movement along the play element. Access to the installation is possible along the sloping platforms, and from the sides on steel ladders.
