展览前言:

加拿大西海岸具有丰富的本土文化和艺术,其历史可追溯到一万多年以前。我曾沿着太平洋沿岸从亚洲游历到南美洲,看到了多种独特的艺术文化表达。加拿大西海岸原著民的艺术灵感通常来源于本地丰富的森林资源。这些原著居民按照传统的方式将红色雪松皮条编织成衣服。当地人还依靠雨林得天独厚的自然条件,将树木制成独木舟作为出行工具,同时也将它用作房屋和礼堂的木板和横梁。也有艺术家将雨林树木雕刻成冬季赠礼节用的面具。

 一直以来这些面具象征着生死和鬼神。来自海洋和森林的野生动植物是这些原著居民日常生活和梦境的一部分。

今天,各个国家和地区致力于保护本国的文化遗产,向世界分享自己独特的生活方式,同时也表达着对海洋和山川的尊敬,是它们赐予了这种生活方式。《面具背后》使我们有机会走近温哥华岛东北岸鸬鷀岛上的原著民,走近他们的社会生活。

Project Introduction

The West Coast of Canada is rich in Native culture and arts dating back more than 10,000 years. Through my travels around the Pacific Rim from Asia to South America, I have noticed many unique cultural expressions of art. The 1st Nations people of Canada's west coast often base their artwork on the most abundant resource - the forest. From the forest they traditionally weaved their clothes, using strips of red Cedar bark. Natural elements of the forest provided materials for transportation, in the way of canoes, planks and beams for homes and ceremonial halls. Out of the forest also came the masks, carved by artists for ceremonial potlatches.

These mask continue to represent the living and dead, the ghost and spirits, the wildlife and animals from ocean and mountains that are part of their everyday life and dreams.

Today the communities are focused on preserving the cultural heritage and sharing their unique way of life that reflects respect for all providers of life from the ocean, forest and mountains. The Face Behind Mask exhibition takes us to these people and their community on Comerant Island, off the north east coast of Vancouver Island.
