Does the name Choi Jeong Hwa ring a bell? He is the same artist who decorated the 2008 Seoul Olympic Stadium with pieces of plastic garbage brought in by 10 million citizens! Hwa is an artist known best for his over-the-top and extravagant pieces of artwork with the amazing ability to take everyday objects and cleverly assemble them into vibrant large-scale installations. Hwa’s most recent work is title Cosmos, and has been put on display at the Kyiv Biennale in the Ukraine. From Afar, the building appears to be decked out with hanging beads – as if Mardi Gras magically sprouted up in the Ukraine. At second glance, Hwa has masterfully hung strings of colorful plastic balls, connecting chains, knitted flowers. Underneath the strings are rows of Hwa’s custom designed Low Seating Tables where visitors can sit underneath the festive ceiling!
