富邦人壽大樓的戶外廣場一直是個充滿魅力的舞台，從1999年開始相繼邀請了多位國內外藝術家，包括草間彌生（Yayoi Kusama）、李真、王文志、屠國威、顏名宏、劉時棟、許唐瑋、Faiyaz Jafri、游文富、盧憲孚等，在此創造一個臨時性的遊戲空間，從裝置作品的造型、特性，讓它們自由發聲並與觀者近距離對話，幾年下來也成就了與大眾們的共同回憶，一種強悍的力量，卻也溫柔而親切。
Fubon Life Building's outdoor plaza has always been a captivating stage, and from the beginning of 1999 many domestic and international artists have been invited to exhibit here by turning this location into a temporary showcasing space with diverse installations. The artists are allowed to speak freely and interact intimately with the public, and within a few years, this location has created a communal memory for the public with a force that is powerful yet gentle and endearing.
Do you remember the giant duck-shaped cup that stood here in the summer of 2004? The cup was Hung Yi's first attempt at creating a grand-scale three-dimensional work, titled “A Cup Filled with Blessings.” In these four years, Hung Yin not only has participated in many public art installations, and also continues to pursuit in the usages of diverse media in his works. Hung Yi's style comes from the environment that he is in and also his own experiences, and some of them come from original colors of the temples and shrines of Taiwan, which are bold, vivid, and filled with joyful sentiments. In 2008 Hung Yin once again returns here to create a garden that is filled with life and emotions. Inside the garden, the cats, dogs, ducks, birds are all icons that are trademarks of Hung Yi's works, and it is here that these creatures gather to reminisce about the origin of art and to remember a cup filled with blessings and to recollect the footprints and nostalgias of the pass times.
Hsu Yung-Hsu has been working as an artist for almost twenty years, and his works have gradually transformed from realistic to abstract. He continues to pursuit the endless possibilities in ceramic sculptures, and at the same time strives to show the earthy subtle variations in the colorations of the ceramic glazes. The artist’s hands are the best sculpting tools, and the painterly strokes on each work come from the artist’ touches with his hands. Up close, the strokes are light and soft, but in actuality, they possess a sternness that is derived from high heat. The works are full of surprising strength and beauty, and have the power to rattle one’s emotions with a piercing energy.
