"LIVE TO LEAVE" BY CHENG BAI

年度獨立電影分享會:成敗作品 "活着離開"

7 Apr 2014 - 3 May 2014

 

Songzhuang Town which is located near Beijing, the capital of China, is the leading edge of Chinese contemporary art, and also is the place closest to the freedom of spirit where you can live in your own mind. More than 3,000 artists from all over China live and work here. One day, most of them, are put in a life quandary, then making art has become a kind of torment and struggle in life. Every year, because of survival, many artists leave here. And every year, because of dreams, many artists come here. Painter Song Qianjin realizes when he is ready to leave: Art doesn't mean everything in your life.

 

中國首都北京近郊的宋庄鎮是中國當代藝術的前沿,也是最接近精神自由並可按自己意願生活的地方,來自全國各地的三千多名藝術家生活工作在這裡。當有一天,他們中的大多數在遭遇了生活窘境時,藝術創作就變成了生活上的一種煎熬和掙扎......每一年,因為生存,很多藝術家離開了這裡。每一年,因為夢想,很多藝術家來到這裡。當畫家宋前進準備離開時才感悟到:原來藝術並不是存在的全部意義。
