菩提树

在日本经过一系列群展和个展之后,云昭开始尝试公众展示装置艺术。当时不满足于在纸面上表达和叙事,决定把始发于08年的’探险小子森亚‘系列立体化和实物化,意语多年在英国和日本的艺术求索之路。地点选在爬山景点神户再度山,座处日本兵库内六甲山脉,途经上次步引瀑布登山40分钟来到叫做市介原的白石滩。在此处的浅溪取景还是继续往上到大龙寺的犹豫之际,岸边的一棵大树吸引了云昭的注意力。10月初秋并没有枝零叶落,强健的树根在涨潮时的河水冲刷下盘根错节虎踞岸边,符合艺术家要求的挣扎,成长和寻根的人物背景。于是云昭毫不犹豫的按下快门把站在大树下的森亚定格在他的‘菩提树’下,象征开悟和觉醒。

Tree of Bodhi

Following up Senya’s steps went further in Mt Rokko. 30 minutes of trekking from Nunobiki waterfalls here it is Ichigahara-a open plain crossed by mountain river stream and a middle point to Dairyu Temple. Among the rivers, rocks & the greenery this tree immediately caught up Yun’s attention. Standing quietly yet its branches stretching out up high, the roots planted deeply in earth as if they were crawling towards, artist couldn’t help moving away and placed his tripod right in front. Ever heared of Bodhi(Bodhidruma) in Buddhism? Awaken and understood of life meant to be the narrative in his mind.
