“树之记忆宫殿”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。这也是一个有关如何与植物、与人更和谐相处的社会调查。我诚挚地邀请您,请把您的关于树木的故事讲给我听。(email : niamh@niamhcunningham.com) 期待您的来信。

为何树在低语

爱沙尼亚传说

安妮·佩洛斯基讲述

在世界最初的日子里,树木被创造出来不久之后,人类不得不离开伊甸园开始工作,一个人来到森林里砍树。他遇到的第一棵树是松树。他一举起斧子,就听见一个声音大喊:

“不要砍我。你看不见黏黏的眼泪已经从我的身体流出吗?砍我会给你带来坏运气。”

那个人没有看见黏液从树干的砍痕中留出,但他继续往森林里面走。他来到一棵云杉前举起了斧子。云杉树大声反对:

“不要把我砍倒。我的木头不直而且很多结,没什么用处。”

这个人感到遗憾继续往前走,这次来到一棵桤木前。他再一次举起斧头准备砍,可是桤木尖叫起来:

“小心点,不要伤到我。我被割伤的时候,血液从我的心脏流出,会把我的木头和你的斧子都染成红色。”

这个人不再继续往前走,而是呼唤上帝。

“我该怎样才能弄到木头来生火和建造栖身之所呢?我遇见的每一棵树都哭着恳请我不要砍倒它们。”

上帝可怜这个人,对他说:“回到森林里。我确保从此以后,没有树会开口反驳你。”

这个人按照吩咐做了,这一次没有树对他说话。他把树砍倒生火和盖房子,那些树一声不吭。

树们对此很不高兴。它们不敢向上帝大声抱怨,而是在每次有人进入森林来到它们领地上时轻声低语。直到现在,在任何地方,如果你走近树林,仍然可以听到它们彼此耳语。它们轻轻抱怨在人类手中的糟糕待遇。

安妮·佩洛斯基是一位86岁的故事讲述者,她住在美国。她的职业生涯始于儿童文学,在慕尼黑获得富布赖特奖学金之后,她在纽约市图书馆工作了许多年。随后,她负责联合国儿童基金会的一个儿童读写能力发展中心的运营。目前她是独立工作者,在世界各地旅行,开办故事讲述工作坊。最近有一部记录片以她为主角拍摄。
