為架上繪畫中的結構關係所觸動,姚海將數碼創造的繪畫語素再一次分解,並概括性地歸納成裝置、雕塑中線條和幾何圖形的空間關係。儘管此行為又一次地打破了二維視角的靜態平衡,但繪畫中的節奏和氣韻卻得以延續。在這裏,線條和幾何圖形形成了一種動態的意向關聯,是一個遊動的所指。


姚海在這裝置作品的創作方法中,把“解構”當成了一種策略、或一種遊戲。“解構”的概念源自法國哲學家雅克·德裏達的理論體系,它意味著與死亡對立的生命——其結構裏有永無止境的替換,而替換即為運動,運動即為生命。而為了避免死亡,我們必須對之予以歡欣的肯定。事實上,藝術家正是這樣以分化、破解的方式面對過去,同時他用輕松、遊弋的態度對曾經穩固的結構及其意義加以消解和清理,但每一次分化、破解的結果又重新產生了新的結構和意義。因此,在作品創作、變化、生長的過程中,其意涵實現了從一到零再從零到一的螺旋式上升......


在一定程度上,姚海的創作可視為一個多重解構的過程,一場認真的遊戲,其中有拆解也有追索,解構的同時亦在重構,這似乎也暗示著某種對未來的期許,它或許能為觀者的想象提供一些有趣的線索。

Inspired by the composition of his early paintings, Yao Hai hence created a series of site-specific installations. The digitally invented morphemes for the paintings once again are deconstructed in the process, becoming the spatial relationships between lines and geometries in the installations. Although, the static balance in two-dimensional art form (the paintings) is interrupted, rhythm and harmony continue to exist in the installations. In this respect, lines and geometries form a dynamic relationship with rhythm and harmony.


Yao Hai perceives ‘deconstruction’ as a strategy, an unbridled approach to free play. ‘Deconstruction’ is a school of philosophy initiated by French philosopher Jacques Derrida. It entails that life is the antithesis of death. It is a structure of infinite substitutions. The play of substitutions signifies differentiation. Differentiation indicates signs of life. To escape mortality, one should readily affirm the presence of infinite substitutions. For Yao Hai, differentiation and deconstruction take place when he revisits his past artistic practice. He roams freely in the formerly established structures to review and clarify the significance, and to discover new structures and meanings in the process. His creation process evolves a spiral-like ascend from zero to one then back to zero.

 

Yao Hai’s artistic approach is considered a multi-deconstruction process, a serious play. It not only involves deconstruction and exploration, but a series of infinite substitutions take place during the process. His works, perhaps, implies expectations for the future, or plants interesting clues which allow our imagination to fill in the blanks.
