The Archive:Rewriting Histories
档案:重构历史(节选)

文/Eva Respini︱译/西毒

从照片被发明以来,它已经称为档案的代名词了,如今最常见的档案文件就是照片。照片的特性非常契合档案用来记录、分类以及整理知识的功能。档案摄影由记录犯罪案件、考古发现等等社会事件发展而来, 通常用于永久性的档案储存,给予历史以可靠性和证据支持,并促进了人类学、社会学和科技的发展。

摄影师从摄影术发明之际便开始探索照片与证据、历史和信息的关系。在过去的四十年中,由于照片的普及性、大量网络信息的涌现,以及数码影像的不断增殖,同时作为主体和形式的档案变成一个众矢之的。通过对档案文件和逻辑组织系统的重新解释和再应用,艺术家们挑战了档案的权威和重要性。

其中一种策略是转化官方档案的语境,并制造新的叙事,从而质疑摄影的真实性。加利福尼亚艺术家Larry Sultan和Mike Mandel共同拍摄的“Evidence”便是这种创作方法的先驱。艺术家从公共和私人档案中梳理了四十万张照片,从中选出九十九张照片作为最终成书和展览的集合,从而创造出一中神秘、有趣,甚至充满幽默感的叙事结构。

而有些艺术家探讨的是照片重现历史的局限性,德国艺术家Michael Schmidt的“U-NI-TY”创作于柏林墙倒塌的第二年,他集合了公共和私人的影像将统一后的德国形象化,并探讨了激情澎湃的德国人背后的身份危机。

中国艺术家海波的系列作品“他们”,其中交织了时间和记忆,从个人角度审视了文化大革命,每一对照片都含有一张文革时期红卫兵合影和一张现代版本的合影,这以鲜明对比凸显了过去三十年中国社会的现代化,特别是西方化进程。

二十世纪末和新世纪初,公共和个人领域之间的界线越来越模糊,艺术家开始运用个人肖像去体现公共事件。在系列“May, June, July, August”中,艺术家Lorna Simpson从一本ebay买来的相册着手,在这本1957年的相册中,一位不知名的洛杉矶女性在照片中摆出各种海报女郎的姿势,艺术家模仿照片中的场景和姿势重新演绎了快照内容,给予它们以不同的格调和新的公共职能。

照片担当了历史的见证者,自从十九世纪中叶的克里米亚战争以来,阴森可怖、充满暴力的历史瞬间让我们意识到记忆和理解之间的差距是如此之大。越南战场的照片甚至成为左右公众舆论的关键点,从而产生规模浩大的反战运动。档案摄影提出了一系列有关作者、权威和图像阅读的问题,同时引人反思这一媒介在建构历史叙事中所发挥的关键作用。
