我的承諾-愛


先愛自己,再推己及人,愛環境、愛大自然,愛生活圈裡的生命共同體,最後,愛時間。這體現了儒家的禮記大學篇的精要:格物、致知、誠意、正心、修身、齊家、治國、平天下。


死亡與時間是人一生中最公平的兩件事,這一次我精挑嚴選作品與本次主題呼應,由能推估死亡的時間枷鎖反推回個人的情慾主體,愛?究竟是為了今天的當下,抑或是為了明天的未來?


環境驟變、極端氣候異常嚴峻,透過莫狂的作品來反思北極熊的擬人化所冷眼看待的死亡議題-不願意。走在物種滅絕危機之際,在世人類看到其餘物種被人類高度發展而滅絕的態度,透過廖晏儷老師的作品來一窺此刻所表達的自私與混沌-對比的心境。在紐約的街頭,我們感受到了愛情、體驗到了音樂、享受著精彩的演出與展覽,如同看著Attilio近似張狂的吻,無拘束的本體而自由自在相戀,吻?代表著個體的延續,一個傳遞的鏈接。林小南-她愛音樂,而她正用著視覺與聽覺的震撼力,來證明她愛音樂與繪畫的癡狂就如生命中無時無刻都必須存在的氧氣一般,這個-是她的宿命,而宿命的緣盡緣滅取決於活著。


每個人都會死,每個人一天的時間都只有24小時,如果你希望活著能為全世界做些事,貢獻一些愛,給予這個地球的同時,請先愛自己。時間滴答滴答在走,最末用碧梅的作品提醒著我們,四季的變化,如同人的喜怒哀樂般無常,珍惜每一刻人與人相聚的緣分、珍惜每一分人與環境共生的情誼。


你有多愛自己?多看重自己的宿命?在時間毫不留情的消逝裡,緊抓不放的自由有沒有危害了除了自己之外的大千世界?自私與執著,面對眼前一個接著一個物種的死亡,想一下,該如何延續與傳遞甚至是再生的愛的表現?


愛,不是只有嘴巴上說說而已。

My commitment to love. 


What's love? what's peace? And what's tomorrow?


This time we bring compelling artworks to deliver a simple but powerful announcement: “Love makes a better world”.

In the meantime, those diverse styles are forms of action of love, the artworks themselves as a whole and a dynamic eternity.

As a self - loving and compassion are foundations of peace pursuing. Love in other artists’ eyes is interpreted as a way of pursuing a harmonious life with the world. Liao Yen-Li's paintings are as a reflection of how we react our internal selves with external objects. Her works awaken the individuals' realization of an eager being. Artist Mo Kuang, giving a thought-provoking message by painting extinct animal-polar bear; to give us a reminder of how vital it is to extend our self-loving to our surroundings. At the last, Artist Pi-Mei's paintings remind us of the changes of seasons as our unpredictable emotions so that it’s vital to appreciate people and environment and to cherish a harmonious relationship in our living community.


Everyone will eventually face death, 24 hours a day is our equal right, if you hope to do something for the world while being alive, devoting love to the world and the earth, then, love yourself first, please. Time is tic tacking - Love is not just lip service at all.
