'For Flora Yukhnovich, part of the appeal of the Rococo, that 18th-century movement associated with indulgence and ornamentation, is that it feels contemporary. “In a way, I think we’re living in another Rococo period,” says the London-based artist. “The internet and all its tendrils feel Rococo: the way we use images and the theatricality of image-making, the emphasis on consumerism and aspiration.”'
