A major exhibition combining industrial and everyday materials to create immersive environments and creature-like sculptures

Major exhibition of existing and new work by South Korean artist Haegue Yang, renowned for her vast and non-binary artistic languages. The materiality and aesthetics of her work are derived from her inventive methods, from using industrial and everyday materials to labour-intensive and craft-based procedures that create creature-like sculptures. The resulting environment is often immersive and charged with an energy that weaves together enlightenment and mysticism.

Born in South Korea in 1971, Haegue Yang is based in Berlin and Seoul and teaches at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. Recipient of the 2018 Wolfgang Hahn Prize, she held a survey exhibition at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne in the same year. Further solo exhibitions include South London Gallery, UK (2019); La Panacée-MoCo, Montpellier (2018); La Triennale di Milano (2018); and Centre Pompidou, Paris (2016). Her work has been displayed in major international exhibitions including Liverpool Biennial, UK (2018); the 21st Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2018); Sharjah Biennial 12, United Arab Emirates (2015); dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel (2012); and the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009). Her work is included in permanent collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA; M+, Hong Kong, China; National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, South Korea; Tate, London, UK; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, USA; and The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, USA.
