豪華朗機工 2012 「福– Fulfill Arts」 計畫展
To paste the Chinese character, Fu (meaning good fortune), on the doors—an action that symbolizes the longing of a life with abundance.
“Fruition—Fulfill Arts” is custom made project by LuxuryLogico, Taiwan contemporary art’s super hybrid artist group, for Project Fulfill Art Space.
The Fruition Project is a sub-project of LuxuryLogico’s Project Woodpecker (Note) which is to explore the environment of the art world. The first step is to become the collectors themselves. Second, the collections had become their inspiration for creating 9 new pieces out of/ on to them. After experiencing as collectors and artists, Luxury Logic will invite other collectors to have conversations during the exhibition.
In this project, LuxuryLogico selected artists/works that they all admired, and tried their best to contact the artists in person to conduct a talk that furthered our understanding of their works. Afterwards they acquired the works. At the end, the nine artists on their list of collection were from different generations. Their works stand for divergent methods of expression. Although the only shared reason of why LuxuryLogico have chosen these works is their admiration of them, there might be an underlying possibility referring to a certain degree of investment.
The nine “new works” created by LuxuryLogico include three parts:
1.The point of view: it is what they think about the work as an item of their collection as well as the inspiration their original creators have brought us. This is also the chief background of their re-interpretations.
2.The collection: their collections of other nine artists are placed within the new works. Therefore, the meaning of each new work is threefold—“the inspiration,” “the treasure within,” and “the selling.”
3.The documentation: the documentation for the collector consists of the guaranties from the artists, whose works were previously acquired by them, the guaranty and related papers of the new work from the Fruition Project.
Another high light is that there will be 8 limited edition pieces provided during the exhibition period. 8 Chinese characters “FU” written by 8 artists (whose works are collected) etching on 8 boxes in which contain LuxuryLogico’s Spring Festival couplets will be sold within 8 limited of timeslots. They are nice delicate pieces for fans who love the artists and the group.
A special event, One day performance by LuxuryLogico, will take place at 5pm on May 5th to 4pm on May 6th in Project Fulfill Art Space. It’s a tribute to Sam Hsieh’s “ONE YEAR PERFORMANCE 1978-79”. This group of 4 members will be restless for 24 hours to make a calendar divided one day into 366 sections. Please come cheer them up anytime during this day!
(Note): “Project Woodpecker” is like a woodpecker, whose repetitive action of boring holes into wood has a function of pest removal, the endless pecking also functions as a method of food collection for the woodpecker. The creative spirit that drives LuxuryLogico comes from an interdisciplinary, cross-referential methodological hybrid that combines old and new technologies. A single idea is simultaneously processed through different modes of logic. The collective plan, “Project Woodpecker” arose out of this mindset.

註: [ 照顧計畫 ]，為集合性的創作主題，英文名為[Project Woodpecker]，討論到群體創作內的服務性格，就像啄木鳥，看似雕食木頭，其實是在為樹木除蟲，而蟲對啄木鳥的意義便是食物。主要概念是將老舊毀壞的物件或地點，重新開啟應用的價值。[ 照顧計畫 ]之中的對象與介入方式都彈性的被選擇，是更偏向機會式的串連，這樣的邏輯，來自於豪華朗機工對 [ 混種 ] 的定義，從跨領域/跨概念/跨新舊科技。
