就地造境:关于“就地造境”艺术展

在中国传统文化中人生境界是一个挥之不去的问题,许多问题都围绕它展开。在汉语语境里,对“境界”的理解出要源自对形而上生命层面的思考,即人生中的“境界”,是人通过对宇宙、社会、人生的思考,进行道德、文化、心理、审美等方面的自我修养,以达到一定的实践水平或程度,脱离市井价值观,获得内化的愉悦的整全生命,儒家将之视作一种对“成圣人格”的担当。

Let There Be Light

Per Johansson, who was born 1984 in Sweden, is a post-1980s artist. Different from many post-1980s artists with inhospitality and indifference, Per is a mild and modest person willing to think and communicate. Per is good at seeing the enchanting moments of the mysterious nature: the sun breaking out of a cloud, a tiny part of a lake, or some vaguely seen shadows. These parts of nature are all in some way related to light: in the ripples on the lake, in the fog, in the sky over an island, or in the twinkle below the eyelid when somebody just opens his eyes.
