The UK’s largest exhibition to date by celebrated South Korean artist Haegue Yang

This exhibition brings together new and existing works spanning installation, sculpture, drawing, collage and painting. Haegue Yang is renowned for creating immersive environments from a diverse range of materials. Her sculptures and installations often use industrially made objects, interwoven with labour-intensive and craft-based processes. These processes reflect pagan cultures and their deep connection with various seasonal ritualsin relation to natural phenomena.

The context of St Ives, and the Cornish landscape and its ancient archaeological heritage are important points of inspiration.

This is the first exhibition at Tate St Ives to take place across both the award-winning top-lit gallery in the new building and the spectacular sea-facing gallery in the original building.

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.
