自建房曾是我国居住住宅的主流,但随着城市化的推进,土地日趋紧张,商品房价的泡沫化暴涨,自建房在不久的将来被快速城市化和商品化的金融,政治和资本的力量所吞没。
 
艺术家金晶生活在南方沿海城市,厦门。这个高房价的城市里,最后一批有地的本地农民阶层用最低廉的成本来构建他们对住宅空间最原始的欲望追求,并用自由如野草一般的盖建速度,顽强地在这个高房价的城市夹缝里野蛮生长。在这房价泡沫式暴涨的城市中,只有极少部分人能成为那一小批有地的自建房拥有者,大多数的人们忙碌着拼搏着,在这个城市安家,付出高额的房款或租金,却只能拥有相对局促的室内空间,性价比远远不及自建房。
 
此次金晶创作了一个有着盖章功能的手动机械装置,并在厦门本地找了一位有30多年自建房修建经验的师傅,让他设计了几款厦门常见的自建房外型样式,金晶将这些自建房外型样式分割成一个个独立的元素,并制作成拼图版,观众可以挑选喜欢的自建房元素的拼图板,并用这个装置盖印出一栋属于自己的自建房。希望这个简单的复制过程,无论是有房或无房的人们,可以在拿到自己“盖”出的房屋时会心一笑,聊以慰籍。
Self-built house used to be the mainstream house mode for living in China. With the advancement of urbanization, increasing trend of land shortage, and soaring commercial housing prices, self-built house may soon diminish due to rapid urbanization, financial commercialization, and the power of politics and capital.
 
In Xiamen ,a high-price-housing city, the last batch of local peasant class use the lowest cost to purse their most primitive desire of residential space. Their self-built houses rise from the level ground like the weeds to barbarically grows in the cracks of the huge new tower blocks.In such a city with soaring housing price, only a small number of people are the lucky owner of the Self-built house. Most of citizens are busy and struggle with work aiming to settle down in this city, paying the high housing fund or rent but with the relatively limited interior space. The cost performance is far less than self-build house.
 
The artist, Jin Jing, invented a manual installation device with the function of stamping. Besides, she visited a master worker with over 30 years’experience of constructing self-built house and asked him to design several frequently seen models of self-built houses. Jin Jing separated these models into several individual elements and made them into picture puzzles. The audience can select the picture puzzle with the self-built house elements they like and use this machine to stamp a self-built house pattern belonging to themselves.
 
No matter you are a house owner or you have no house, the artist hope this simple copying process will comfort  you when you get the stamped house.
