【新唐人2011年4月22日訊】美國製片人花費兩年時間製作的艾未未記錄片即將完成。影片記錄艾未未最近兩年的藝術創作和維權經歷。而在英國,十多名藝術家聚集在倫敦泰特現代藝術館,踏著“一億顆葵瓜子”,鋪上兩千張艾未未的頭像,表達對他失蹤的擔憂。

現年26歲的紐約曼哈頓製片人愛麗森-克萊曼(Alison Klayman)沒有想到,她為艾未未製作的記錄片還來不及完工,艾未未已經被抓。

在拍攝艾未未生活經歷的兩年時間裏,愛麗森成為他理想的追隨者,去年艾未未赴成都公安局投訴被警方毆打,愛麗森隨同拍攝現場,被公安勒令刪除錄影。但是她偽裝刪除,暗中把錄影帶調包。

艾未未被抓後,她在影片中加入了最新事件的進展,並且插入艾未未此前對於自身危險處境的評論。她表示,這些話現在看來尤其有先見之明。

長期在北京工作的克萊曼,中文名為陳愛麗,經常為美國之音、加拿大廣播公司等多家媒體拍攝及撰寫專題報導,2007年她還獲得美聯社學院報告獎。

無獨有偶。早在今年一月,英國BBC電視臺就製作了一部記錄片,名為“艾未未,無懼無畏,不偏不倚”,主要介紹艾未未的藝術成就和成長心路歷程。其中介紹了他創作的巨型裝飾藝術片“一億顆中國瓜子”。這一億顆陶瓷葵花籽,由景德鎮超過1600名熟練工歷時2年多,近30道工序,純手工製作而成。

艾未未說,「這些瓜子每一顆都象徵著獨立的個體,象徵著每一個生命的寶貴。」

在艾未未被抓之後,他的作品“一億顆葵瓜子”仍然在英國倫敦泰特現代美術館內展出。4月9號下午,十多名旅居英國的作家,畫家以及藝術家和記者,踏著陶瓷瓜子,在1000平方米的展廳地上鋪滿了2000張艾未未頭像。表達對他被拘押的擔憂。

與此同時,艾未未的頭像也出現在香港和中國內地。週二,香港一名少女因為在街頭噴灑艾未未頭像被警察跟蹤。香港一些民間藝術組織也發起週六舉行“藝術公民大聲援”遊行活動,要求當局釋放艾未未,停止白色恐怖。

在中國合肥的某地下通道,突然出現多幅艾未未頭像,引來行人駐足圍觀。根據“塗鴉少女”的介紹,除街頭塗鴉外,已有另類“塗鴉”出現,包括有人在鈔票上延續“誰害怕艾未未”塗鴉,借鈔票在民間流傳,也將釋放艾未未的訴求不斷傳開。

柏林藝術大學校長馬丁-雷乃爾特證實,四個月前,學校啟動了聘請艾未未擔任客座教授的程序,現在校方試圖通過艾未未在香港的辦公室,將聘書投寄給他的妻子,並希望藝術家本人能收到聘任的消息。

Seeds Rooted though Documentary Remain Unfinished

The U.S. film producer’s documentary is about to finish.
The film is about Ai Weiwei’s recent 2 years of arts
and rights activities. In England, dozens of artists
expressed their concerns in front of the Tate Gallery,
with 100 million sunflower seeds and 2000 photos
of Ai Weiwei laid out on the ground.

The 26-year-old New York producer Alison Klayman
didn’t expect Ai’s arrest even before her film was done.

Alison has been filming Ai’s artistic life for 2 years.
She filmed the scene of Chengdu police beating him.
When the police caught her and forced her to delete
the recording, she managed to hide it away and save it.

After Ai’s arrest, she incorporated the latest news and
Ai’s previous concern about his potential danger.
She said that his concern was visionary and is real now.

Working long term in Beijing, Klayman (also known
as Chen Aili) also contributed special coverage to VOA
and CBC. She received 2007 AP School Report Award.

Coincidentally, BBC made a TV program in Jan. 2011
entitled “Ai Weiwei, Without Fear or Favor."
It introduces Ai’s art achievement and his growth.
There’s a story about Ai’s masterpiece,
100 million Chinese Seeds made of ceramics.
They were wholly hand-made by 1600 skilled
workers with about 30 procedures in 2 years.

Ai said, each of these seeds symbolizes an independent
individual and the preciousness of a life.

This masterpiece of his is still being exhibited in
the Tate Modern Gallery of London.
On the afternoon of Apr. 9, dozens of writers, painters
and reporters spread 2000 photos of Ai over the floor
of Seeds in the gallery, expressing their concerns.

Ai’s images also appeared in Hong Kong and China.
Tuesday in Hong Kong, a girl was followed by police
for spraying Ai’s image on the street.
Some folk art organizations in Hong Kong want to
launch street parade on Saturday to free Ai Weiwei.

On one underground path in Hefei bobbed up Ai’s
images, drawing quite a crowd from the passersby.
According to the Graffitist girl, people do not only paint
on walls, they draw on cash. With the spreading of cash,
appeals to free Ai have been spreading wider and wider.

Martin Rennert, president of the
Berlin Univ. of the Arts, confirmed that the university
had offered Ai a visiting professorship, and tried to
deliver the offer letter to his wife via Ai’s office in
Hong Kong, hoping that Ai could receive this letter
in person.
