作品描述:
几个似是而非的“意外死亡现场”,在这儿没有暴力、血腥,有的只是不同观众对此表现出的冷漠、疑惑、不安、紧张甚至虚伪的宣称自己是目击者。作 者身着的透明雨衣在此次“意外死亡现场”中仅仅是作为一种自我保护的符号出现,制造异化感。作者在这里并非是要千方百计地制造出几个骇人的死亡现场,引起 公众的骚动与不安,而是要通过这几个似是而非的“意外死亡现场”对人性、道德、社会规范、社会治安等多个层面进行一定的考察。

毛旭辉《焦虑与保留》展评述(节选):

罗菲的作品也用一种冷峻的态度去反省当代生活,他的行为作品<<意外死亡>>(其实施过程用录像和图片记录)一个穿着白色塑料雨 衣的"死者″(由作者自己伴演),出现在公共食堂的餐桌上;居民楼下的过道;近郊的铁轨上等等普通的生活环境中,引起路人对此的各种反应,一次虚拟的死 亡,尖锐地检验了当下人性的尺度,检验的结果是令人失望的,麻木和漠视占了上风。

Mao Xuhui’s comments on Luo Fei’s performance, 2004
The works of Luo Fei are self-examination in present living in a serious altitude. His behavior work Incidental Death (the work implementation is recorded by video and pictures). A “dead man” (acted by the artist himself) in white plastic raincoat appeared in some of the places in our daily lives —— at a table in a dinning hall, the stairways of a residential building and suburb railways —— and aroused different reactions of the passerby, in which the measure of humanity was sharply tested and the dominant reactions were disappointed, insensitive and indifferent. Another work of him Puberty has something to do with the urban expansion. In the video, two long shots were used to present the busiest downtown city, contrasted to the dirtiness and chaos in the lateral zones such like jointing part of the city and the countryside. It is actually two unbalanced spheres and the disturbing characteristic of a modern city. This situation is continuing everyday and the distance between the rich and the poverty is expending. The artist expresses his doubt to modern civilization in a brief and stern language. Such kind of doubt has forced him to implement another behavior work more extremely —— he will not use any of the transportation tools to whatever the place he would like to go in the future five years instead of walking. It is an altitude extremely against the modern civilization and the common values. As an undergraduate student, Luo Fei’s inclination in his work is so different from that in the upgrading development. Is it his “unfortunate” or the “unfortunate” of the society? It is not easy to answer.
