Exhibition Details

Gaze upwards at Choi Jeong Hwa's signature inflatable flowers as they burst into bloom inside the Gallery's atrium. Described as the 'bad boy of Korean art', Choi's eye-popping work turns an overabundance of petals into a joyful jumble of flowers that spill illuminated from the atrium's ceiling.

Choi's installations are one of three temporary commissioned works which celebrate the opening of the developed Gallery.
