Haegue Yang

Haegue Yang (1971, Seoul, South Korea) currently lives and works in Berlin and Seoul. Her works are known for their eloquent and seductive language of visual abstraction. Bringing together a variety of working methods, ranging from complex installations with industrially produced items, such as Venetian blinds, to hand-made sculptures using rather low-tech craft such as knitting, paper making, origami, macramé and other types of weavings, Yang’s oeuvre has reached a level of rich complexity and unique abstraction.

Haegue Yang has exhibited in major international exhibitions including the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009), dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel (2012), Mediacity Seoul (2014), Taipei Biennale (2014) and Sharjah Biennale 12 (2015). Her recent solo exhibitions include Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2015), the Museum of Contemporary Art, Strasbourg (2013), Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen (2013), Haus der Kunst, Munich (2012), and major institutions including the New Museum in New York, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, Modern Art Oxford, Aspen Art Museum in US, Arnolfini and Tate Modern Tanks in UK among others have hosted her solo shows.
