echoes infinity floral installation by shinji ohmaki

‘echoes – infinity’, 2012 by shinji ohmakicreated with the support of the fondation d’entreprise hermès for third-floor hermés gallery – singapore 2012

 

 

japanese artist shinji ohmaki filled the entire third floor of the hermés gallery in singapore with his large-scale installation ‘echoes – infinity’. carefully sculpting a kaleidoscopic floral landscape from felt and crystal powder through a specialized stencil technique, ohmaki manufactures a surreal wonderland – inviting the audience to become part of a sudden apparition. viewers were invited to step through the the vibrant composition – each outside interaction contributing to the artwork’s constant evolution. the floral motifs were an amalgam of influences from europe, asia and japan, merged in the cultural context of singapore – a crucible of multiculturalism.
