Indeed, ordinary objects have been characteristic materials of CHOI JEONG HWA's art since 1993, as seen in renowned works such as Plastic Paradise, Alchemy, and Present of Century. This exhibition takes its name from the work Blooming Matrix, which refers to a space of diverse objects (collected bt the artist from around the world) are brought together in harmony. By planting a forest of 120 flower pagodas the artist merges time and spce and transforms the gallery into a place of meditation and memory.
