LIFE IS GOLD

For the special public art installation at Location One of the Bank of Taiwan ChengDe Building, the artist employs an extension of her personal style, introducing the longstanding forms and themes of her art into the design of this work: a six-piece set entitled “Gold Keeper—LIFE IS GOLD” as the public art at this site.“Gold Keeper—LIFE IS GOLD” is a work of art consisting of two white talismans of good fortune and several artworks shaped like pieces of gold. Since this is a public artwork to be exhibited at a bank, the artist has designed many gold pieces to be displayed at this site, to symbolize endless wealth and an influx of financial resources. Also, the words marked on the gold pieces, “LIFE IS GOLD”, signify that life itself is infinite fortune and wealth. Hence, the gold pieces convey a double meaning. In addition, with the bank managing people’s wealth, life becomes more wonderful and secure. At this time of economic downturn and inflation, the artist hopes to cheer people up and bring them blessings with the gold pieces that come in various sizes. “Gold Keeper—LIFE IS GOLD” is a public artwork with an auspicious meaning.
