Double Fly’s Klein Blue

On March 9th, 1960, in the Paris International Contemporary Art Gallery, Yves Klein applied IKB to the bodies of three women, and made them roll, pull and drag on the canvas set both on the ground and the walls.The Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain held on March 9th, 1960 witnessed that Yves Klein applied IKB to the bodies of three women, and made them roll, pull and drag on the canvas set both on the ground and the walls. The coming April 26th, this historical and classical moment is going to be presented again by Double Fly Art Center in Space Station in Beijing. It takes 55 years for the spiritual spark of “flexible and unrestrained universe”, which Klein worshipped very much, to reappear. Audience are given the chance by Double Fly Art Center to experience the moment when the virtual artists leap up and throw themselves into the void, suspending the illusory but complicated spiritual world in the universe. Klein uses the purest color and void to arouse the strong perception of the soul towards immateriality: this is his system of thought under the influence of Rose of the Cross and the Japanese Zen. Klein says: “By using colors, I experience a kind of feeling which you assimilate with the space; I have true freedom.” Klein is the founder of behavioral art and conceptual art, and the Double Fly Art Center is going to use a “live body” as the painting brush to start a sacred dialogue that transcends time and space, entering into the purely spiritual field of concepts.

In quantum physics, the renowned mathematician John Conway of Princeton University, by using the spin entanglement of photon, proved in 2006 the “the Free Will Theorem” that in a single experiment, if the experimenter has the freedom of choice, then the results presented by the particles have freedom too; and this is not determined by the past history (including the whole universe). Though we cannot see or touch the consciousness, nor can we measure it with time, space or energy, consciousness is a basic nature of matter; and the test reflects that particles have consciousness. If matter and consciousness are one, and the latter is an inseparable whole from the universe, then the boundary between science and faith would be gone and the destroyed oriental inheritance would be continued, and a new world with a new outlook would come. How will Double Fly use the painting behavior of Klein Blue that transcends time and space to represent the shapeless world of consciousness? What kind of road to void is this?
