1997夏天,我做了“为鱼塘增高水位”。我邀请了四十多位来自全国各地来北京打工的民工,有搬家公司的,有建筑工人,有卖鱼养鱼的;年龄从二十几岁到六十几岁。为了找这些民工,我走访了很多他们居住的简易棚子,这个鱼塘离我住的地方不远,我有时散步就能走到那儿。这些参与的民工并不理解我的本意,只是按照我的计划来实施这个作品。我看到他们的时候,他们就象我童年生活印象里的叔叔伯伯和兄弟。

这个作品分三个部分。第一部分是把这个鱼塘围住,每个人面向水,间隔五六米,沉默看水;第二部分是增高水位:第三部分组成一排人墙将鱼塘一分为二。我身上背的小孩年仅五岁,是鱼塘主人的孩子,那一天他表现得很出色,有一种超乎年龄的早熟。我做过与大山有关的作品,还想做一个与水有关的作品,也算实现了内心的一个愿望。

To Raise the Water Level in a Fishpond

《为鱼塘增高水位》

In the summer of 1997, I created To Raise the Water Level in a Fishpond. I invited more than forty immigrant workers in Beijing to participate. They came from all over the countryside and ranged in age from twenty to sixty. Some worked in moving companies and construction while others sold fish. I went to many shabby tents (their homes) in order to find them. At the time, I lived within walking distance from a fishpond. The immigrant workers didn't understand what I was doing but simply followed my instructions. When I saw them, they reminded me of my uncles and brothers from my childhood. The piece has three parts. First, we circled the pond with five to six meters between each person and faced the pond in silence. Next, we raised the water level of the pond. For the final part, we stood as a human wall to divide the fishpond in two. The boy on my back was the son of the fishpond owner and only five years old. Surprisingly, he did very well that day. I had created pieces related to mountains, so I wanted to make some related to water; this work fulfilled that desire. To my knowledge, it was the first time that an artist collaborated with immigrant workers. In the following year, the piece was exhibited in New York and received great attention.
