South Korean artist Haegue Yang (born 1971) uses a wide array of mediums - ranging from paper collage, video essays and performative sculptures to large-scale installations - to create images and experiences in which people, places and things are evocatively linked. Often using ordinary objects in elaborate abstract compositions, Yang's work stages chance encounters between viewers and materials that can generate unexpected forms, emotions and narratives. This publication is a rich, fully illustrated anthology of the most significant writing on Yang's work from 2006 to 2018. Featuring essays and interviews by Lars Bang Larsen, Nicolas Bourriaud, Binna Choi, Doryun Chong, T.J. Demos, Yilmaz Dziewior, Patricia Falguières, Eungie Joo, Tom McDonough, Ute Meta Bauer, Bart van der Heide and Anne M. Wagner, the selection of texts in this volume thoroughly engage the complexity of the artist's work.
