Internationally renowned South Korean contemporary artist and designer Choi Jeong Hwa creates art that celebrates the peculiar beauty of synthetic materials and everyday objects while provoking reflections upon both consumption and harmony in our modern lives. Choi’s ephemeral "Life/Life" installation of more than 10,000 balloons at Gallery Central is a complement to his Perth International Arts Festival commissioned public installations. His carnival of color and plastic mimics and honors the beauty in nature as well as the processes of decay that are part of being alive.
On view at Gallery Central, Australia. February 10th – March 10, 2012
