Nails are an important part of our body, and the parts of the human body that are in most contact with the outside world. They are also an essential feature of appearance, manner and trend. In daily life, nails have become a unique exhibition space of personality. Traditionally, girls tend to use their nails as another way of showing off their beauty. However, regardless of race, gender, age and profession, everyone has their own taste, preference, and things they like, and nails offer are great space to show. We invite you to submit your proposals to the “Curated Nails” project.

‘Curated Nails’ is a project for curatorial experimentation on nails and its surrounding area.

The proposals should challenge conventional ideas on “nail art” and to explore the potentials of nails as exhibition spaces. You don’t have to be a professional curator or exhibition-maker to submit, all welcome!

展示癖——指甲计划征集策展方案

项目介绍

对指甲的改造和美化,最早出现在人们的宗教祭祀活动中,人们将自己的崇拜的图腾描绘在手上祈福避祸。指甲作为身体的一部分,是私密的身体最常与外部世界联接的部位,也是自我状态、习惯、审美趋向展示的平台。在在日常生活的无意识和有意识中,指甲成为人对外传达身份的独特展示空间。常规的理念中,美甲似乎是女孩的特权,但是无论什么种族,性别,年龄和职业,每个人都有自己的审美、喜好、崇敬的事物。在这里,我们将要征集在“指甲”上进行展览策划。欢迎各界、各种身份的人士参与。

Exhibitionist “指甲计划”策展项目限定的展览的空间是人的手脚指甲及周边区域,作为展览呈现的载体。 艺术家叶甫纳作为发起人邀请有兴趣进行策展实践的人在指甲这个特殊狭窄的空间提出展出方案,打破“日常展示”和“艺术展览”的界限。方案的可以关注任何由指甲为载体发挥的可能性,策展构想的形式,媒介,材质,作品不限。艺术家本人会作为方案的实施者,根据方案和实际情况在不同的身体上呈现这个展览。也就是说,展览最终的发生也是在人的指尖,而非传统意义上空间中的“展览”。
