  • 〈舒適麻痺〉Comfortably Numb

    從小我就對神話感到興趣。寺廟裡、房屋周圍所雕刻的神祉與人物,以及街道上無時不刻可以看到非凡的神靈、女神、偶像,都令我著迷。我還記得童年時代在鄰居的電視上觀看的傳奇電視劇《摩訶婆羅多》(Mahabharata),我特別喜愛裡面的戰爭故事。這些故事在今天,如果我們仔細觀察的話,也同樣具有相關性。我們人類很難從各種難以想像的偶然發生的事件中逃脫;無論是人為事件還是自然災害,我們都必須去面對。人為的悲劇或許還可以加以預防,但自然災害是我們無法控制的。

    〈舒適麻痺〉便是在試圖表現我們人類被迫面對的自然災害。回想2015年4月25日11點56分那次可怕的地震,再次讓我感到如同數支利箭刺穿了我的全身;驚懼之下,我的感官彷彿自動關閉,再也無法處理外在事物的感受。畫作內容以神話故事《摩訶婆羅多》為背景,反映了大眾熟悉的毘濕摩(Bhishma)的戰鬥性的視覺隱喻。就如同在《摩訶婆羅多》的故事裡被迫站在一個不對的處境的毘濕摩一樣,即使知道對與錯雙方的差異來自於錯誤的信念,我們都必須像祂一樣一樣承受2015年4月25日的災難對我們的影響。普通人如我們只能盡可能地選擇一個較好的面對方式;我們不得不像毘濕摩一樣忍受這樣的遭遇。

    From a young age, I was fascinated by mythological myths, the supernatural figures carved in the temples around the house, the extraordinary idols of gods and goddesses standing in the streets all the time. Even in his childhood, the legendary TV series "Mahabharata" and its war stories, which were watched on the televisions of neighborhood, were especially focused on, whose stories are equally relevant today when we observe on them carefully.

    It is very difficult for us human beings to escape from various unimaginable events that happen from time to time. Whether it is a human-caused event or a natural disaster, we are bound to face it anyway. We can deal with human-caused tragedies, but natural disasters are beyond our control. "Comfortably Numb" seeks to represent the natural disasters that we humans are forced to face helplessly. When I think back on April 25, 2015 at exactly 11:56, the memory of that horrible incident again reminds me of a sharp arrow piercing my whole body as if my senses were numb. The painting "Comfortably Numb" reflects Bhishma’s which familiar visual metaphor during the battle in a context of a mythical story form “Mahabharata". Just as in the story of Mahabharata, Bhishma is forced to stand in the wrong place even though he knows the difference between right and wrong due to bad faith, so you have to bear the effect of the disaster on April 25, 2015 just like "Bhishma". We, the common people, have no choice but to choose a good situation voluntarily. We have to endure the situation like Bhishma.
