Very Fun Park 2007

Fubon Art Foundation

Comtemporary Art Exhibition in Taipei's East District

This highlights a giant “toy” that is at once intimate and disproportionate to reality. Viewers may recall back to their childhoodand be reminded of the excitement and joy of the play room.


The artist plays with the proportions of real things and uses ridiculous visual and situational positions to present a black farce that declares the cruelty inherent in the expansion of human striving and desire.

Jimmy has produced an installation piece for the exhibition based on one of his book, Beautiful Solitude. It is about one the loneliness, the beauty and the little unspeakable secrets that make up the hidden part our lives.

This piece displays abstract images of ten children and their “silent shout” in the city. They appear to be laughing or shouting, though many of the emotions are simultaneously resolved through collective release.

Look at the three smiling faces on the side of the building. Are they muttering the word “O-I SHI?” In Japanese, OISHI means “tasty” but it has the same pronunciation as the artist, Akinori Oishi’s, last name. As part of this play on words, the title of the piece “Oishi” means “every taste.”

Tsai Chih-Fen uses these lush green areas in the city to create “Flower Sea Maze” ( 花海迷宮 ), a work that resonates with nature. This piece takes the image of a sea of azaleas and sows pink acrylic fiber through the greenery, forming a maze on the strip of green that runs through the city. This idea of natural organic combination between media highlights the vital beating heart at the center of the city.

Tseng Wei-Hao makes use of the principal that like charges attract and opposites repel, applying it to interactions between human bodies/objects, objects/objects, bodies/bodies and through electric traction creates sound. As part of the process of producing sound, the marks left behind after the exchange of ideas are often transformed into different physical forms, such as hearing and touch.

Yu Wen-fu decorates the wall of a police station, transforming it into a warm white bamboo gourd. A sensor is installed at the entrance so that when people pass through it, the sound of cicadas can be heard.

Jen Ta-Hsien welds together iron strips in order to launch an interwoven game of lines and points. The shapes are not of real objects but of the artist’s.
