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.

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.

The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.
