Choi Jeong Hwa finds beauty in mass-produced plastic goods and regular kitchen products, and transforms these simple materials into appealing art as if he were an alchemist.
“Gather Together” is a community based art project. The artist stacks donated plastic baskets, plates, and pots using poles placed on a base to create works resembling abstract sculptures or columns found in a temple. Their vivid colors and unique forms decorate the entrances of The National Art Center, Tokyo and BLUE BOTTLE COFFEE on Ryudocho Bijutsukan-dori.
