      Artist Talk: Haegue Yang

      ARTIST TALK: HAEGUE YANG In his 1969 manifesto "Sentences on Conceptual Art," Sol Lewitt stated, “Conceptual artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach.” Learn more about Haegue Yang’s practice, with an emphasis on key works influenced by Conceptual Art. These include her ongoing series Sol LeWitt Upside Down, featured in the exhibition Minimalism: Space. Light. Object. ABOUT THE ARTIST Haegue Yang (b. 1971, South Korea) lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Seoul, South Korea. Yang’s practice spans a wide range of media, from paper collage to performative sculpture and large-scale multi-sensorial installation, often featuring everyday objects, in addition to labour-intensive woven sculptures.
