About the Artwork:

Preface of the Orchid Pavilion , 2014. Liu Xitong. Ink on rice paper. 

Content:永和九年,歲在癸丑,暮春之初,會于會稽山陰之蘭亭,脩褉事也。群賢畢至,少長咸集。此地有崇山峻嶺,茂林脩竹,又有清流激湍,映帶左右,引以為流觴曲水,列坐其次。雖無絲竹管絃之盛,一觴一詠,亦足以暢敘幽情。日也,天朗氣清,惠風和暢,仰觀宇宙之大,府察品類之盛,所以遊日騁懷,足以極視聽之娛,信可樂也。

夫人之相與,俯仰一世,或取諸懷抱,悟言一室之內,或因寄所託,放浪形骸之外。雖趣舍萬殊,靜躁不角,當其欣於所遇,暫得於己,快然自足,不知老之將至。及其所之既惓,情隨事遷,感慨係之矣。向之所欣,俛仰之間,已為陳?,猶不能不以之興懷。況脩短隨化,終期於盡。古人云,死生亦大矣,豈不痛哉!

每覽昔人興感之由,若合一契,未嘗不臨文嗟悼,不能喻之於懷。固知一死生為虛誕,齊彭殤為妄作,後之視今,亦猶今之視昔,悲夫!故列敘時人,錄其所述,雖世殊事異,所以興懷,其致一也。後之儿覽者,亦將有感於斯文。
