> DESCRIPTION

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.

The artist's influence extends outside the Gallery walls, with another temporary installation, Red occupying the reflection pool in the forecourt.
