“玩野”非“玩嘢(粤)”,但它与广州有关——在展的作品媒材大多来自广州乡间所用的农具。在这里,“野”是农具,是“架撑(粤)”,是散落在田野间的钉耙、镰刀、锄头……
The Chinese name of the exhibition sounds like “playing with things” or “playing in the field” while “Trans Object” actually means transforming objects which in this exhibition, is just relevant to the city – the raw materials of the exhibited works are mainly farm tools from the countryside of Guangzhou such as rake, sickle and hoe, etc. scattered in the field.

"玩野Trans Object”:
“玩”是整个展览的亮点——呈现的是来自瑞士七十高龄艺术家Rolf Klaus的创作态度。自1970年起,他便投入在乡村艺术的研究中,为此不断学习新的材料应用,将个人创作与日常设计相融,此次展览,便是他第一次来广州对在地器物的探索创作。
“野”是对在展作品的描述——艺术家经过36年的研究,将他这套冶炼艺术称之为“PARA”。通过锻打,将农具优雅变身,赋予其亮丽的表现力,焕发着勃勃生机。诚如艺术家所言:我进行雕塑和物件创作的目的,是为了把在一件铁制工具中含藏多年的能量释放出来,通过锻造使之成为一种新的形式和表达新的内涵。
“Transform” is the highlight of the exhibition – which manifests the creative attitude of the 70-year-old artist Rolf Klaus from Switzerland. The artist has been engaged in the study of rural art since 1970’s and in his ongoing experimentation of new materials, he successfully combined the individual creation with daily design. This exhibition is an explorative artistic endeavor using local utensils during his first time visit in Guangzhou.
“Object” refers to the exhibited works – he called the re-shaping technique with blacksmith equipment, which he developed through 36 years’ exploration, “PARA-art” and the resulted artwork “PARA”. Through compressing or thinning out, the farm tools become gracefully built, nevertheless expressive objects exuding vitality without frills. As the artist said: “The point of the sculptures and objects that I create is to release the energy, which has flowed through an iron tool for years, into a new form and statement by forging it.”

艺术是沟通的媒介,“玩野”正是这样一个展览,模糊了我们对惯有专业分工的边界,表达了面对日常琐碎可恣意随心的态度。当你玩认真了,玩上瘾了,你便有了属于自己的一个天地。
Art is a medium of communication and “Trans Object” is exactly such an exhibition that blurs the boundaries between existing domains of disciplines and express a carefree attitude toward daily triviality. When you try to create something new by transforming with a sincere attitude and for fun at the same time, having enjoyed it for long enough, you will surely create a world of your own.
