西西者,嘻嘻也? 798 impression

I went to 798, a factory-turned art gallery complex in Beijing two weeks ago and found it kind of weird – for two reasons. First, all those galleries that required the audience to buy a ticket were not that appealing to me. On the contrary, some free galleries have some really pleasing shows. I wonder why? Second, buttocks seemed to have taken a prominent place in this factory – or art scene. Kind of funny.

月中去北京出差,顺便逛了逛798,发现两个有趣的现象。一是但凡要门票的那些画展,里头的作品并不那么吸引我。反而那些敞开大门随便进出的画廊,有不少让我觉得欣喜的作品。二是798这个由工厂变成艺术场的地方,晾着不少屁股。其中一个写着“西西”二字,我任不住想,是不是要表达“嘻嘻”的意思呢?即是说:瞅瞅我的屁股,嘻嘻!
