About

By Appointment Only, RSVP through Eventbrite

Long time no see.

June 6, 2020 A.D., the 2020th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini designations, the 20th year of the 3rd millennium, the 20th year of the 21st century, and the 1st year of the 2020s decade.

The year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have been isolated with each other for almost three months in New York.

The earth is becoming the new “Naked Sun.” In The Naked Sun, Isaac Asimov imagines a planet where everyone is socially distancing from one another. They live separately, use holographic projections to communicate with each other and rely on robots to do chores. Face-to-face meeting with someone is considered dirty and dangerous.

Sounds familiar?

On the new "Naked Earth," some of us spend more time with families, some experiment to be a home chef, some become backyard gardener, some go out to donate PPEs and flowers, while some get new skills - virtual language learning, Zoom singing class, online game design class, writing, painting, 3D printing, voice recording...

Although we can get used to isolation, we still look forward to real interactions on the Naked Earth.

With a belief that "Every encounter is unique, once in a lifetime," Fou Gallery would like to meet you on the Naked Earth.

To step in the new planet, visitors need to schedule a time online, walk in the gallery and encounter with other visitors unexpectedly. Only 6 visitors are allowed every hour so it would be an intimate and spontaneous meeting after the long time social isolation.

Masks and shoe covers are required to enter the gallery. We'll supply masks at the door if you forget to bring your own mask. If our flowers in the backyard blooms, welcome to take a branch back home.

再次交会于否

  • 时间:6月和7月的周末
  • 地点:纽约布鲁克林区Jefferson大道401号#1否画廊

好久不见。

2020年6月6日。公元第2020年,第三个千年中的第二十年,二十一世纪的第二个十年的第一年。这是属于新冠疫情的一年。

我们已经在纽约与彼此隔离了近三个月。

这片土地正在变成新的“裸阳”。在科幻小说《裸阳》中,艾萨克·阿西莫夫创造了一个人与人之间需要相互隔绝的星球。他们独来独往,用全息投影交流并依赖机器人完成工作。与他人面对面相见被认为是肮脏而危险的。听起来有点熟悉吧?

在这片新的“裸地”,我们中的有些人与家人相处了更长时间,有些人尝试着成为了家庭大厨,有些人成为了后院的园丁,有些人捐赠了防护服和鲜花,而有些人掌握了新的技能— 网络学习语言、Zoom远程上课、线上游戏设计课程、写作、绘画、3D打印、直播电台……即使能适应与彼此隔离,我们依然期盼着在这个星球上进行真正的对话和交流。

带着“一期一会”的期许,否画廊希望与你再次相遇。

想要踏入这个崭新的否星球,访客需要在线预约时间,在画廊与其他访客不期而遇。一小时内最多只有六位客人来访,经过了漫长的隔离,这会是一个亲密而自然的会面。访客需要戴面具和鞋套方可入内。画廊会在门口提供鞋套和口罩。如果后院的绣球花恰巧绽放,欢迎带一支回家。
