“树之记忆宫殿”这个星期又跟大家见面啦。非常高兴邀请到林业专家安娜·芬克展示她怪趣的一面。

 

有时世界似乎到处是束缚你的枷锁。义务、目标、承诺,甚至梦想——有时候,生活就像一个永不停止的车轮,转得越来越快,带你一起奔驰。你做的每件事都应该有目的,应该充分利用你的时间。即便是空闲时间也该完美设计——在做项目、你自己、社交、某件事上“取得进展”之间保持适当的平衡。

爬树不是这样的事。它毫无用处。不过,当你只向上爬而不回头时,没有什么比这更有意义了。你的身体正在做一些它天生就要做的事情,你和自己遗忘多时的一部分联系在一起。当你的手碰到第一根树枝的时候,你想起了那些从未学过的东西。这样做让你不得不面对那个很久以前被推到一边去的部分,这个部分和那些无用的事情一起深埋在心中某个地方。

不仅仅是攀爬。一旦到达,就“存在”了。和爬树差不多,仅仅“在”树上也没有任何用处。似乎更糟的是,没有目标,没什么可追求的。然后你留下来。触摸手下的木质,观察周围的世界。慢下来。从静止的那一点、无目的的那一点开始,一个新的理解逐渐显露:从高处看世界,从生命的角度感知这个世界——诞生然后死亡的生命,这些教给你最基本的事。前进,到达某个地方,做点什么,并不是唯一的生活方式。存在即是一种方式。观察也是。在没有行动而形成的空白之地,世界有机会传给你它的知识。事情是这样的:世界,自然,只会低语那些要传授的东西。如果我们继续在人类自身制造出的嘈杂声中前行,终将错过千百万其他的声音,错过其他存在的方式。

所以,去爬树吧。不是要达到某个地方或者做些什么,而是相反:静静地站着,听树在唱歌。一曲安静而美丽的旋律。

 

安娜·芬克

自2017年以来,安娜·芬克在亚太森林恢复与可持续管理组织(APFNet)北京分部担任项目经理。由于工作的原因,她的足迹遍布亚洲各地区的森林,她与不同合作伙伴一起工作,促进区域内森林恢复,加强森林可持续管理。在加入APFNet之前,2012年她在德国获得国际森林生态系统管理学士学位,2016年毕业于耶鲁大学林业与环境研究院,获得林业硕士学位。

其实爬树不是她的工作,但在过去几年里,爬树已经成为她的一大爱好。现在没有一棵树能躲得过她。

 

 

“树之记忆宫殿” 2020是一个关注生态环境的艺术实践,这个项目邀请大家通过讲述一个关于树的故事(或者提供与树有关的信息)参与其中。这也是一个通过分享故事探索如何与地球和他人和谐相处的社会调查。我诚挚地邀请您,把您的关于树木的故事讲给我听。(邮箱 : niamh@niamhcunningham.com) 期待您的来信。2020年每个星期都会有一个有关树的故事或信息与一件艺术作品一同发布,一件之前的作品,或者一件新作品——也许你的故事将成为我创作的灵感来源!
