世上的節日無奇不有,藝術節聽得多,但會把藝術品燒毀的節日你又有沒有聽過呢?在剛過去的8月27日至9月4日,美國內華達州黑石沙漠舉行了一連九天的Burning Man藝術節,又稱火人祭的盛大活動。

Burning Man 其實是當地年度盛事,是吸引超過七萬人參與的狂歡派對,參加者會悉心打扮、穿上奇妝異服,用心炮製超巨型的木雕,然後在週六晚上的儀式中,把巨型木雕付諸一炬,這瘋狂的行為在參加者眼中有社區意識、藝術、激進、自力更生等等特殊意義。而今年大會的主題是「Radical Ritual」(激進儀式)。

以下是不少參加者的精彩照片︰

from the ashes, you spread your wings to fly Reaching now for those final dreams, belief will never die Beautiful and so glorious, the eternal bird of fire Soaring up into the sun, leaving behind the pyre Dreams are now your destiny; reach with all your might You’re a powerful inferno, ablaze and in full flight Yesterday is over, today has just begun The sky is now your playground your home is now the sun Destiny is in your grasp, forget the doubts and fears Your flame will burn eternally for all remaining years There will be times of doubt, and moments of pure sorrow But one thing that is ever true, you’re the angel of tomorrow. . –Deanthebard 「The Phoenix who survived」 . Photo: 『The Phoenix Rising』 a Playa sculpture at Burning Man 2017 . 「The Phoenix Rising will be an art piece that both burns and remains. A steel sculpture of a Phoenix will be concealed within a wooden sculpture of a bird. The wooden sculpture will burn, revealing the metal Phoenix within. The Phoenix both burns away uniquely, yet remains to be rebuilt and burned again.The piece is both performative and physically permanent. It is a symbol of rebirth and renewal.」 ?❤️
