All eyes on ... Haegue Yang

Seoul to Berlin.
This is the main route which installation and construction artist Haegue Yang (born 1971) travels between these days.
August the 9th 2006 marks the date of her first solo exhibition in Seoul where she set up light and object installations in an abandoned building.

Ever since then she had over 30 solo Exhibitions in several known galleries around the world.
I first came upon her work at the Centre Pompidou in paris where she showed

Lingering Nous

Modernism and tradition, industrial development and traditional origin are elements which Yang transfers and are set opposed to each other without comment.
Sculptures from metal shutters or handcrafted elements set and bound together to abstract objects the artists forms her own visual dialect 
which unfolds through abstraction and unconventional arrangements.
