CV | 简介
MuChum, Visual Artist, Photographer, Poet.
Born in Hefei, China.

Drawing on his works, he is good at digging inner life out of simple things. 
He insisted that the work should be based on the inner feelings,
if only the form and decoration, then the body is only empty shell. 

His control of color stems from nature itself, pure body without excessive decoration, 
life and emotion are already direct expression.

 In his society, people still have great controversy about body art.
However, he believes: "Body art is erotic or art, depending on the viewer’s mentality. 
If 
people’s heart is pure, then he can feel the beauty of art from nudity;
if people’s hearts are full of desires, even people wear Full of clothes, are also evil. "

His male photography has established his unique visual language. 

Through movies, pictures and poems,
he expressed his cognition of the male body
and established his unique visual language. 

He is as alive as poetry, his poetry exists with his life, and recorded his life. 
When photography failed to express his feelings, 
he used silent words and he looked for his confidant.


木川,视觉艺术家、摄影师、诗人,出生于中国合肥。
其作品常取材于生活,善于从朴素的事物中挖掘内在的生命。
他坚持作品应当是出于内心的感受,如果只注重形式和装饰,那么形体只是空洞的躯壳。
他对颜色的掌控源于自然本身,纯粹的躯体无须过度装饰,生命与情感已经是直接的表达。
在他所处的社会,人们对于人体摄影还存在很大争议,
他坚持:“人体摄影是情色,还是艺术,取决于观赏者的心态。
如果人的心是纯净的,那么他便能从裸体中感受到艺术的美;
如果人心充斥着欲望,即使人物穿满衣服,也皆是邪念。”

他像诗一样的活着,他的诗和他的生命一起存在,是他生活的记录。
通过动态电影、平面摄影、诗歌等方式,
他探索着关于男性躯体的表达,刻画了他独树一帜的视觉语言。
当摄影无法表达他的感受时,通过无声的文字,他寻找着能感同他感受的人。

ABOUT THE12 | 关于THE12
 
"Mu" is a pronunciation, it comes from the ancient Greek 12.
Derivatives to ancient Roman characters "Ⅻ".
It represents the number 12.
The 12 includes love and striving.
Recording time (12 points of the clock),
Record the melody (12 semitones on the piano keyboard).
The reason for choosing 12 is that we can record multiple life languages in a limited time.
I wish we had a limited time,
Record a variety of life languages,
With love for the image cause,
Breaking through the shackles of mainstream aesthetics,
Find the visual expression that comes from your heart.
With love for the image cause,
Breaking through the shackles of mainstream aesthetics,
Find the visual expression that comes from your heart.


“MU”源于数字12的古希腊语发音,
衍生至古罗马字符“Ⅻ”
代表数字十二,
12包含了爱与争取,
记录时间(钟表的12个方位)、
记录音律(钢琴键盘上的12个半音)。
选择THE 12
是希望我们在有限的时间里,
记录多样的生命语言,
怀揣着对影像事业的爱,
突破主流审美的桎梏,
找到源于本心的视觉表达。



I created this totem,

he is the origin of all forms and separation,
contains inner spirit of The 12,
it is also a tag,
in geometric hid the letter "M" "U".
I put it as symbols of THE 12,
the spirit of hope it flowed in the image.


我做了这个图腾,
它是所有形态的起源与分离,
包含了12的内在精神,
它也是某种标记,
在几何中隐藏了字母“M”“U“。
我把它作为THE12的符号,
希望它的精神在影像中流淌。
