李云迪的救赎

Li Yundi Redemption




2021
Digital painting


Li Yundi, known as China's "Piano Prince", has been detained for soliciting a prostitute. He has been active in various promotional events and entertainment TV shows across China in recent years.

After the news broke, he has been quickly boycotted and banned from posting on Weibo, where he has over 20 million followers, while a number of organizations have cut ties with him. Li has also been cut out from a popular TV show that he recently participated in. This well-known household name became a target of public criticism just overnight.
Such a scene reminds of the martyred saint Bastian in the Bible. He is portrayed as a handsome young man with his arms tied to a tree stump and shot by random arrows. While today in China, the government has taken a tough line on artists and has led efforts to “purify” the country’s cultural environment, often in pursuit of political goals. Once someone is suppressed by the authorities, the entire country's censorship machine will eliminate them and completely deny their past.

In recent centuries, Saint Sebastian has been continuously depicted by artists and appeared in various types of literary and artistic works, while the Chinese "Piano Prince" has now faced the fate of being "purified" by the government, as if this name is never existed and totally disappeared from the public view.

有“钢琴王子”之称的李云迪因涉嫌嫖娼在北京被拘留,他是享有全球声誉的中国古典音乐家,近年来一直活跃在中国的宣传活动和娱乐电视节目中。
继官媒公开批评后,他被噤声,在热播的真人秀节目中被模糊,相关单位与其断绝联系,个人资料已被更改,以消除他与几个政治组织的从属关系。这位家喻户晓的俊美男子一夜之间成为众矢之的。这样的图景让人看到与圣经中殉道圣人巴斯弟盎之间的类比,他常被描绘成双臂被捆绑在树桩,被乱箭所射的英俊男青年。今天在当局绝对把控的舆论环境中常发生类似的事件,一旦被当局打压,整个国家的审查机器就会排山倒海地进行肃清,将其过往全盘否定。

近几个世纪来,圣巴斯弟盎被艺术家不断地描绘,并出现在各种类型的文艺作品中,而中国“钢琴王子”则面临被审查者“净化”的命运,就像从未存在过的精神污点消失在公众视野。
