David Blamey is a London-based artist. His work encompasses several activities that overlap to form a multidimensional practice resisting conventional categorisation. He deliberately positions his projects within a range of public situations, both inside and beyond the art gallery. Having regularly travelled and carried out research in India over a period of thirty years, in 2006 he was awarded the Arts Council of England’s Prayog International Artist Fellowship and he was a guest contributor to the Experimenta 2007 festival in Bangalore and Mumbai. Blamey edited Here, There, Elsewhere: Dialogues on Location and Mobility ( 2002 ) and co-edited Living Pictures: Perspectives on the Film Poster in India ( 2005 ), cultural studies published by Open Editions, an independent publishing platform that he founded in 1992. His recent activities include producing a 12-inch vinyl record, Rural ( 2015 ), and a film, Rice ( 2017 ); and editing two books, Specialism ( 2016 ) and Distributed ( 2018 ). Last year he curated the experimental film programme Short Bursts of Concentrated Joy for Houghton festival and created the sound project Learning To Listen for Bang & Olufsen. The Wire described his O.K. cassette release for My Dance the Skull’s Voice Studies series as ‘something quite strange, creepy and good’.

大卫· 布莱梅是一位生活和工作于伦敦的艺术家。他的作品打破了常规分类的框架,围绕着互有交集的不同活动展开多维度的艺术创作。他故意将其创作项目置身于公共场合之中,不仅摆在画廊内,也超越了画廊的界限。在过往三十多年的时间内,他经常远赴印度进行考察研究。他于2016 年荣获英格兰艺术委员会 ( Arts Council England ) 颁发的Prayog 国际艺术家奖学金;他亦以客座创作者的身份参与2007 年在班加罗尔与孟买举行的艺术映画双年展 ( Experimenta India ) 。他于1992 年创办了独立出版平台《开放出版》 ( Open Editions ),至今出版了多部文化研究著作,其中包括由他负责主编的《无处不在:有关地域与流动性的对话 ( Here, There, Elsewhere: Dialogues on Location and Mobility ) 》 ( 2002 年出版 ),以及他参与编辑的《有生命的图片:印度电影海报面面观 ( Living Pictures: Perspectives on the Film Poster in India ) 》 ( 2005 年出版 ) 。他最近的创作成果包括一张12 英寸黑胶唱片《田园》 ( Rural ) ( 2015 年出品 ), 一部名为《米》 ( Rice ) 的影片 ( 2017 年出品 ),并编辑了两本著作《专业化 ( Specialism ) 》 ( 2016 年出版 ) 以及《分散式 ( Distributed ) 》 ( 2018 年出版 ) 。去年他为霍顿电子音乐节 ( Houghton Festival ) 策划了实验电影项目“集中喜悦的短暂爆裂” ( Short Bursts of Concentrated Joy ),并为多媒体视听器械品牌铂傲 ( Bang &Olufsen ) 创作声音艺术项目“学会聆听” ( Learning To Listen ) 。他为独立发行平台《我的舞蹈头骨》( My Dance the Skull ) 的声音研究系列所创作的《O.K.》被先锋音乐杂志《The Wire》评价为“如此陌生, 令人不安,但又非常完美”。
