Berlin-based sculptor and installation artist Haegue Yang (b. 1971, Seoul) combines both organic and industrially manufactured materials, staging multisensory environments with light, scent, and mundane objects. Her interest in history, literature, as well as political realities continues to shape her language of culture. Through her varying mediums, Yang challenged classical perceptions of visual art through hidden narratives, which were further developed in the realms of print and paper at STPI.Read More
Combining the tactile and the olfactory, Yang explored print by incorporating local spices and vegetables in her techniques. This evoked the senses of smell, sight, and touch; heightening the physical and sensorial characteristics of these everyday materials. This collaboration has produced works such as Spice Moon Cycle (2015), Spice Moons (2013), and Spice Sheets (2012); which were shown in STPI under the title, Haegue Yang: Honesty Printed on Modesty (2013). The works were also added to the collections of the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and UBS Art Collection, Zurich, respectively.
A selection of her recent notable exhibitions includes Lingering Nous, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2016); The Malady of Death: Écrire and Lire, Hong Kong (2015); Shooting the Elephant象 Thinking the Elephant, Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2015); Family of Equivocations, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Strasbourg (2013); Accomodating the Epic Dispersion, Haus der Kunst, Munich (2012); Arrivals, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria (2011); and Voice and Wind, New Museum, New York (2010).
Furthermore, her work has been included in the Biennale de Lyon (2015); Sharjah Biennial (2015); Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (2015); West China Art Biennale (2012); dOCUMENTA Kassel (2012); Gwangju Biennale (2010); Venice Biennale (2009); Guangzhou Triennial (2008); and PRAGUEBIENNALE3 (2007).
