The present work documents the powerful performance by Zhang Huan, photographed by Rong Rong. During Zhang’s performance the artist remained in a small public toilet the size of 12m2 for an hour in a swelteringly hot environment. Covered in honey and fish sauce, Zhang’s body attracted swarms of flies. The work is thus an image of resilience and resistance in the face of adversity and recalls the Buddhist principles of enlightenment and purification through suffering. Works from this series are important examples of performance art in China and announce the emergence of conceptual photography in the 1990s.

這幅作品記錄了藝術家張洹的一場極具震撼力的表演,照片由榮榮拍攝。在張洹的表演過程中,他逗留在僅有12平方米的狹小公廁內,歷時一小時,四周環境酷熱難耐。張洹在身上塗滿蜂蜜和魚露,惹來成群而至的蒼蠅。因此,這幅作品是面對艱苦逆境下以堅韌意志和忍耐得出的影像,令人聯想到佛教修行,即透過苦行解除蒙昧,淨化靈魂。此系列的作品皆為中國行為藝術的重要實例,更昭告著1990年代觀念攝影崛起的趨勢。
