【展覽簡介】

比生命還長的事
許志強


做一件到死亡那一刻都不後悔的事,這件事才是重要的。
為什麼我要做一件比生命還長的事?因為我知道世間這些東西終究帶不走,幾百年後它可能成為古蹟,而我已經不知到那裏去了。它是它,我是我。過程中如佛所說:過去心不可得,現在心不可得,未來心不可得。那我得到甚麼?我得到初心、決心、恆心與感恩心、慚愧心、懺悔心、永恆的守護。這些才是我可以帶走的,但做出來的成果會留在這裏。
所以,做事的過程很重要。只要我們守住對的方向-「應無所住、而生其心」。每天都能累積可以跟著我們一起走的「無價之寶」。
藝術家也是一樣,好好創作,到最後可以帶走的不是作品。而是我們對藝術的奉獻。讓我們在面對自己生命的時候無怨無悔,覺得人生沒有白來。
「若再讓我選擇一次,我還是會選擇作這件事。」
我希望在自己有限的時間裡讓生命的厚度增加。當面臨苦難的時候,就好好運用它,不用閃躲,讓那些苦難來磨練我們,磨練過了,留下的是無邊的收穫。
我不覺得其中有甚麼可惜或辛苦。如同登山,我知道辛苦,但是重新再來,如果你問我還想不想去?我想我的答案還是肯定的。
我不是為辛苦而來,但辛苦過後,坐在山頂上看雲海看日出,那樣的回憶「無法用言語形容」。

【Introduction to the Exhibition】

Something Longer than Life
Hsu Chih-Chiang

If there is one thing really essential, it will be something you have never regretted throughout your life, even when you are standing on the threshold of death.

Why have I dedicated my life to something longer than life? It is because I know I can never take away the things I own in this life to the next. Hundreds of years later, what I used to have or achieve may become a historical monument and I am nowhere to be found. It is what it is, and I am what I am. The path of life can be realized through a Buddhist saying that “neither the past, the present nor the future mind can be found.” But what have I found? I have found my original intention, determination, persistence, gratitude, repentance, and an eternal dedication. These are what will go with me when the day comes, but the results of them stay here in this world.

Therefore, how thing is done matters a lot. As long as we keep our directions correct, “they should develop a mind which does not abide in anything.” Throughout the days of our lives, we have been accumulating the priceless treasure we can take away with us.

Artists are no exception. We devote our lives to art, and what we carry with us in the end of our days are not the artworks but the dedication itself. It is such a dedication that we have no regret for the journey in this life.

“If I were allowed a second chance, I would have not made a different choice.”

I hope that in my limited span of life I can do my best to create some depth of it. When life hits us hard, we will take advantage of the obstacles rather than escaping from them. Let us be polished by the adversaries, and the survivors will be granted with a priceless reward. In this life, nothing is regrettable nor a toil. Like mountain trekking, I know how tiring it is but if you allowed me to make another decision in the first place, I would have not answered it differently rather than a “yes.” I am not here to exhaust myself, but once I survive the exhaustion, the sunrise or the sea of clouds seen from the mountain top becomes a memory beyond any language.
