彼岸的金苹果

“刻托和福耳库斯交欢生下最后的孩子,

一条可怖的蛇妖,在黑色大地的深处,

世界的尽头,看守着金苹果。”

——赫西俄德,《神谱》,见于《神谱笺释》P114-115

在古希腊神话中,苹果代表爱和权利等神圣美好的事物,也代表了完满的婚姻。在北欧神话中,金苹果是温暖的生命,青春的象征。凯特尔神话中,苹果与冥界和永恒幸福相联系。圣经中,苹果代表着欲望的诱惑、禁忌和智慧(注:圣经中的苹果原本指无花果,后世流传中渐渐演变为苹果)。自宇宙和众神诞生起,美好的肉体和爱恨情仇总是艺术家们热爱的主题。我们正是借着神的一言一行,讲述人类自己的故事。世间的光明与阴暗都是人性的一部分。

西方如此,东方亦然。

中国明代是文学和艺术作品辈出的年代。在王阳明心学的启发下,解放和描述人类天性的作品层出不穷。在众多作品中,最打动人的便是《金瓶梅》。它在历史中常常是被打压的一部著作,然而其中的独到之处正是它剥离掉了浪漫理想主义的包装,以自然主义写实手法赤裸裸地表现出小人物以各种姿态在欲望中沉浮。同时,它又带有孩子气的玩世不恭,用天真的眼睛不带评判的观察着世间百态,人性复杂。世间有重如泰山的伟人,但更多的是轻如鸿毛的市井小人物:他们没有治国安邦的远大理想,脱掉忠孝节义的道德外衣,便只剩下日常琐碎的生活和自然天性的解放。

《金瓶梅》第八回,有一首潘金莲思念西门庆的诗:

红曙卷窗纱,

睡起半拖罗袂。

何似等闲睡起,

到日高还未。

催花阵阵玉楼风,

楼上人难睡。

有了人儿一个,

在眼前心里。

内心最真挚的的情感无法因为道德礼教而被束缚住,正如叶绍翁的诗句:满园春色关不住,一枝红杏出墙来。内心的春色浪漫是封锁不住、禁锢不了的,它强大的生命力必能冲破束缚,蓬勃发展。

对人类本能的欲望无止境的好奇心是马慧创作的主要灵感源泉。她在创作实践中致力于探索无意识的欲望和人性本质的交集。在这次的展览《彼岸的金苹果》的系列中,马慧融合中西方对欲望的探索和展现,以娱乐至死的态度对日常琐细中的欲望进行了一场调侃。她通过传统的水彩媒介和散点透视法则,以明艳的色彩描绘了现实中不存在的矛盾空间。在这个虚幻的空间里,是一群没有面部特征的芸芸众生陷于食欲、肉欲和八卦的漩涡。值得一提的是,其中还隐秘地穿插了艺术史上一些著名的场景,如日本江户风俗画,马奈的《草地上的午餐》和《酒吧里的女人》,波提切利的《维纳斯的诞生》,维米尔的《戴珍珠耳环的少女》,弗里达的自画像等,以及现代影视动画中的角色人物,如美少女战士,蓝精灵,兔八哥等等。细细看下来,混乱中总会看到不同的惊喜。

《维摩诘经》说:

入诸酒肆,能立其志;

入诸淫舍,示欲之过。

堕落处即是解脱处。

春宵苦短,不如就在这苹果园里玩耍一遭。

A sudden blow: the great wings beating still

Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed

By the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill,

He holds her helpless breast upon his breast.

How can those terrified vague fingers push

The feathered glory from her loosening thighs?

And how can body, laid in that white rush,

But feel the strange heart beating where it lies?

A shudder in the loins engenders there

The broken wall, the burning roof, and the tower

And Agamemnon dead.

Being so caught up,

So mastered by the brute blood of the air,

Did she put on his knowledge with his power

Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?

(1923, Leda and the Swan by William Butler Yeats)

Sexuality and desire have always been a big part of human history and art creation.  When paper and printing technology became affordable for everyone, people started to circulate erotic picture and novel. When the internet was widespread, people began to produce porn film; and when artificial intelligence came in sight, we manage to create AI sex doll. People always find a way to fulfill their sexual desire. Artists, with their keen eyes, use poetry and visual art to celebrate human flesh and lust, writing down our deepest secret.

In Hui's illustration series Paradise Lust, she explores new ways to entertain and commercialize sexuality. It consists of 18 images, interconnected vertically, as the imaginary interior of a rocket. This rocket is an AI sex doll factory, with each floor depicting a scene of people having sex with them.

Hui has always been interested in the human body and intimacy. Through her artwork, the viewers will have a chance to peek into their unconscious desire and fantasy. Throughout art history of the East and the West: Japanese Edo block prints, Manet's The Luncheon on the Grass, The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, Kahl Frida, Sailor Moon, Smurf, etc. By mixing the traditional Chinese painting techniques with elements from Western art history, Hui wants the audience to discover the irony and entertainment within this colorful world.
