About Mountain River Jump! 山河跳!

Mountain River Jump! 山河跳!はHuang ShanとHuang Heの双子の姉妹によるユニット(1985年生 中国広東省仏山市在住)。2016年結成。さまざまな種類のメディウムによる作品を制作。とりわけ占いの鑑定を鑑賞者に行うパフォーマンスを重視し、実践を通じてパフォーミングアーツの可能性を追求。東洋の神秘主義思想や民話を元に、アイデンティティ・ポリティクス、労働問題、フェミニズム、ライフ・ポリティクス、現代の社会生活等を考察。日常的な身近なテーマから神話的な手がかりを見つけ出し、それらの精神分析を通じて今日の中国における物質主義的な生活態度とそこに潜む精神性を反映する実践を試みている。

Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo founded in 2016 by twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He, who were born in 1985. The duo has a variety of creative formats in art, often applying "divination consulting" as a performance to examine the potential of such art medium, and to interact with the audience at the intrinsic level. With their studies into Oriental mysticism and folklore, the artists pry open the topics of identity politics, labor issues, feminism, life politics, modernity, and others. They pay attention to the embodiment of mythological clues in a daily context, attempting to carry out "psychoanalysis" of the reality, and reflecting on the materialist culture within modern China and its psychological status. Huang Shan and Huang He presently works and lives in Foshan, Guangdong.
