“開光後的耶穌像-1”            2006 石膏像            35x26x36公分

“Jesus in Jesus-1”  2006   plaster statue 35x26x36cm

 

一尊耶穌的半身雕像孤零零地,被安裝在畫廊的牆上,這尊神像並不只是他看起來的樣貌而已。李游坤道長已經為這神之子進行了道教儀式。他從天堂找到了耶穌,然後請祂住進自己的像中。宗教經常讓我們相信肉眼之外,還存有更偉大的事跡。這些虔誠者所恭奉的神像,是一種視覺上的提醒,提醒我們這些看不到的部份。「 開光後的耶穌像」穿梭於兩種極為不同的信仰系統之間,經過這一簡單的擺設,西方和東方的信仰,被引起爭論地融合在一起。也說明了一個事實:不同的儀式,不同的祭祀過程,不同的肖像,基本上均建立在相似的、盡管不盡相同的慾望上。

A bust of “Jesus” is mounted alone on the gallery wall. But this statuette is not what it at first appears to be. Priest Lee You-Kun has performed a Taoist ritual on God’s son; he has located Jesus in heaven and invited him to inhabit his own sculptural representation. Religion always involves believing that there is something greater than what appears before our eyes. The objects that the devout surround themselves with serve as visual reminders of that which always remains unseen. Jesus in Jesus serves to negotiate between two diverging belief systems that are normally kept far apart. As a result of a simple action, Western and Eastern religions are provocatively melded together, thereby shedding light on the fact that very different rituals, ceremonial procedures and iconographies fundamentally are grounded on similar, if not the same, human desires.
