作品说明

《对话》的原始创意,源于对个人情感的绝望。就像作品所显示的那样,一对男女正在打电话,但中间悬挂的电话筒又在告诉人们,对话的不可能。这种矛盾的心理状态,是装置《对话》产生的原始立意。最后射出的子弹,是情感压抑发出的怒吼。


行为过程

1989年2月5日上午,肖鲁在“中国现代艺术展”开模式上,举枪向她自己的装置作品《对话》连击两枪。枪击直接导致展览闭馆。

1989年2月13日,华盛顿邮报也报道了“中国现代艺术展”被关闭的消息。与肖鲁相关的报道原文如下:

It appeared, however, that the whole show might shut down perma-nently Feb. 5, only hours after it opened, when a woman artist in her twenties fired two bullets into the sculpture she had created.

The sculpture shows two people in phone booths with a mirror between them. The two bullets struck the mirror. Police seized the artist and her pistol and closed the exhibition for four days.

The show opened again Friday after the police completed their investigation and the artist, Xiao Lu was released.

1989年3月6日“时代周刊”报道了“中国现代艺术展”的消息。与肖鲁相关的内容如下:

Visitors were also treated to a more startling exercise in xing-dong vishu when artist Xiao Lu, 26, applying the finishing touch to an installation titled Dialogue--full-scale models of a man and woman in separate telephone booths connected by a large mirror-_fired two pistol shots at her large work. The shattering glass frightened gallerygoers, and officials promptly shut down the exhibition for four days for stir-ring up "social unrest." (Later, during its second week, the show was closed again for two days because of a bomb scare.) Perhaps predictably, reaction to the provocative show focused on its eccentricities. "Tying ropes and junk together can now qualify you to exhibit in the national art gallery," scoffed one visitor quoted in the Farmer's Daily, "That's great progress for China."
