Choi Jeong-Hwa, “Flower Chandelier” Town Installations

Flower Chandelier, 2012

Roppongi Hills Metro Hat
[Participation fee]
Choi Jeong-Hwa has created a variety of artworks using flowers as a motif, such as a giant lotus flower, and this time he will exhibit the particularly breathtaking “Flower Chandelier” series. The chandeliers are made using pop-colored flowers like those used in mass-produced toys, and they gained much attention at Choi Jeong Hwa's “happy happy” retrospective exhibition held this year at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki, Finland. This time, he will unveil a new piece made to match the scale of Metro Hat, where it will be installed.
