In this exhibition Choi features two large installations, one in the front lawn of Domaine Pommery and the other one inside Pommery's cave. Fruit Tree welcomes visitors entering the winery with its bright color and freshness, and Happy Happy invites visitors to walk inside the plastic forest along the hallway of the cave.
The Daegu Photo Biennale 2016, celebrating its 10th year of exhibition, is based on the theme, “We are from somewhere, but where are we going?” The exhibition is inspired by creativity, experimental spirit, time(history), space and the environment of Asia.
This new triennale features Choi Jeong Hwa's site specific installation Happy Happy made with recycled plastic parts produced in Saitama and the inflatable installation Breathing Flower touring around different parts of the city.
During the Night of the Arts, recycled plastic receives new life as part of Choi Jeong Hwa’s marine installations. On display for the first time in Finland, Choi’s colourful art blends Korean tradition with the urban way of the world and global consumer culture.
