Symbolic flowers


French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel’s solo exhibition “Black Lotus” started at Kukje Gallery’s K3 Space in central Seoul on Tuesday. The sculptures were inspired by the lotus flower and its symbolic meaning in Korea as well as the poetry of Charles Baudelaire’s “Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil).

“Through my works I want to bring beauty and spirituality in reality to contemporary people immersed in fast-changing virtual realities of the Internet and social networks,” the artist told reporters. [MOON SO-YOUNG]
