泽拓的影像装置呈现出对转瞬即逝的景观的细致观察,那些被我们熟知的环境则往往被加以无意识的形式。树木从一张桌上长出来或是时钟突然长出了腿,这些对泽拓来说,都是自然的干涉手法,但对观众而言确是如此的非同寻常和无法预料。他运用动画,强调对灯光的处理,精心布置镜头,这些一起组成了他丰富多层的作品。泽拓有能力去操控他的想象,并将之转化成为在雕塑和电影之间平行语言的有形维度。  泽拓最早获得国际认可是通过他一系列令人惊艳的动画作品,包括2002年的《住宅》和2003年的《移民》,这当中喷气飞机,机场和大规模移民这些元素被置于日常生活的背景之下。泽拓的作品经常被贴上“催眠”的标签,但是他会反驳说自己只是转移了他的现实框架。 《线性构造》(2012年)是一个双通道的录像装置,其中男性主角失去了记忆,在一所破旧的公寓中穿行。类似时钟的机械装置总会在他的记忆闪现离合的时候出现在他面前。慢转唱片的凹槽,展开成为一条线,然后是一幅图。此作品的音频是由戴尔·贝尼尼和Ute Kanngiesser演奏的一个回文,在画廊空间中的一个被改造过的唱机转盘上来回播放。  Hiraki Sawa’s video installations present intimate observations in transitory landscapes, familiar surroundings often inhabited by anoetic forms. Trees growing from a table, or a clock suddenly endowed with legs are natural interventions made by Sawa, yet extraordinary and unpredictable for the audience. His use of animation, sharp attention to lighting, and meticulously composed shots, are amalgamated into layered works. Sawa has the ability to manipulate his imagination into a tangible dimension that sits between the parallel languages of sculpture and film. Sawa came to international attention early in his career for a series of extraordinary animations, including Dwelling (2002) and Migration (2003), where jet planes, airports and mass migrations are placed into domestic settings. Sawa’s work is often described as hypnagogic, however he would argue that he is simply shifting his frame of reality.   Lineament (2012) is a two-channel video installation in which a male protagonist, who lost his memory, navigates a worn apartment. Clock-like mechanisms appear before and around him as his memories unravel and snap back together. The grooves of an LP record uncoil to become a line and then a drawing. The audio – performed by Dale Berning and Ute Kanngiesser– is a palindrome, played both backwards and forwards on a modified turntable in the gallery space.  《线性构造》,2012年,双通道录像装置,彩色,有声,18分47秒,艺术家和James Cohan Gallery提供图片 Lineament, 2012, 2-channel video installation, color, sound, 18min s 47secs, ©Haraki Sawa Courtesy the artist & James Cohan Gallery(New York / Shanghai)
