2012年,坦契奇來到中國,使用3D攝影的技術拍攝了20多位​​安徽黟縣農民的客廳擺設和他們的肖像。他在每個村民家裡都要拍攝兩張照片:一張是條案上的鐘錶,一張是廳堂中的人。他把這個拍攝項目命名為「Timekeeper」。

坦契奇的照片裡可以見到徽派民宅中擺設的一個個自鳴鐘,這在器物層面折射了一種心理撕扯:自鳴鐘曾經是現代化的符號,被置入傳統居住空間的心臟,廳堂的佈局是受儒家思想和理學禮制嚴格約束的,太師壁在重要節日要用來懸掛祖容,子孫要在此上香,家族綿延的使命感強大而肅穆。不管經歷多少代人的繁衍,子孫和祖先總能共處於這個禮制空間,形成一個環形的生死鏈條,時間在此總是周而復始地運行,架空了自鳴鐘所代表的現代線性時間。自鳴鐘的現代性象徵功能今天早已被電視機、DVD播放器等家電取代,它之所以仍能成為一種持續的風俗擺設,完全是因為大家迷信「終(鐘)生(聲)平(瓶)靜(鏡)」的美好寓意。

2014年,坦契奇再次來到黟縣,完成了整個計畫。他一共進入了黟縣不同村莊的50多個家庭。這些被長期在故鄉土地上勞作催老的面孔,或在外面闖蕩世界被改變了的容顏,和他們居住的空間、使用的物品一起,為坦契奇把抽象的時間變成可以看見的圖像、可以聞到的氣息以及可以觸及的手感。他們是被現代之輪輾過的身體,雖位處偏遠鄉間,但並非與大城市毫無關係,他們生產的糧食、輸送的勞動力或是有一天會被拆毀的家園成就了這個國家的發展。他們是被忽略的主體,卻透過坦契奇的攝影顯現出來。

Matjaž Tančič went to Yi County, Anhui Province in 2012 for the first time. He took portraits for over 20 peasants in their living rooms by 3D photo technology. This is way Tančič took two pictures in each villager’s home. One is the clock on the table, and another is the people sitting in the hall. Because there was a clock in almost every family, he called the series “Timekeeper”.

As a refraction of the tearing, the chime clock in Huizhou house was a symbol of modernization, and now is placed in the center of traditional living space. The decoration of the hall is strictly restricted by Confucianism, ethic and social institutions. The wall in the center is used for hanging ancestors’ pictures. When the offspring prays before the pictures they will fell the strong and solemn sense of purpose. Regardless of the time, generations can coexist in the space created by etiquette, forming a life chain in which time goes endlessly. The modern linear time represented by the chime clock has come to nothing. Televisions, DVDs appear as new symbols of modern life. However, the clock still exists in people’s superstition in the good meaning of “All life is smooth and quiet”.

Tančič went to Yi County again in 2014; he walked into around 50 families in Yi County’s villages. In the residents’ private living spaces, he shot their furnishings, and let them face to the lens in their own halls. These faces ravaged by farm work or changed by outward travels, together with their houses and used goods, help Tančič to change the abstract time into a visible pictures, sniffable breath, and tangible hand feeling. They are bodies rolled by modernized car wheels. Though living in remote villages, they also have connections with the crowded cities. The cereals they grow, the labor force they provide, and their homes which may be demolished one day, accomplish the country’s progress. These neglected subjects are revealed in Tančič’s photographs.
