在代表一年伊始的農曆春節期間,人們見面時總會互道吉祥話,其中最常說的一句便是:「恭喜發財!」

簡短的四個字,呈現出「財富」與人們生活的密切關係,使錢財與美好生活畫上等號。

 

在東漢時期,「搖錢樹」是常見的明器,有升仙樹、通天樹之稱,是人們對於來生仍能有神仙般衣食無缺生活的期許。

 

在現實世界,「搖錢樹」所指則轉化為能帶來財富的人、事或物。可見人們追求生活享受的想望,古今皆然。

 

追求財富,最基本的是為了生活的平穩及安樂,達到基本需求後,進而追求滿足個人慾望。

 

本展以「搖錢樹」作為出發點,探討人們對於物質生活及欲望的追求,觀看由古至今人們如何透過各種行為來追求更多的財富。

 

 

In Lunar New Year, people give blessings to one another. As the most common greeting, “Gong-Xi-Fa-Cai (Congratulations and wish you wealth)” reveals the close relationship between wealth and human life, in which money is linked with great life.

 

Originally a grave good in the Eastern Han dynasty, the money tree, also known as Shengxian (ascending to godhood) tree or sky tree, represented the wish for a carefree next life of people at that time. Today, the money tree has turned to symbolize a person, event, or object that brings wealth. Despite the minor difference between symbols of the money tree in ancient and modern times, the human desire for life enjoyment remains unchanged.

 

People pursue wealth to firstly fulfill their basic needs. After basic needs are met, people turn to satisfy their individual desires. This exhibition, themed as “The Money Tree”, explores how people pursue a better material life and satisfy their desires, allowing viewers to understand how humans, from ancient times to the present, seek wealth through various behaviors.
