Beauty can be found in the most ordinary. Choosing the humble button as a metaphor for the ordinariness of human existence, Korean artist Ran Hwang creates an extraordinary landscape of cherry blossoms and delicate webs for her breathtaking new installation.
Accompanied by phoenixes and peonies – long regarded in Eastern culture as symbols of grace, strength and renewal – Becoming Again echoes the transient nature of existence that is at the core of Hwang’s practice. For this site-specific project at Third Floor – Hermès in Singapore, Hwang created a flowery landscape dedicated to the cycle of life, inviting us to contemplate and reflect on the transient, finite nature of the world around us.
