Desctiption A fully illustrated anthology on the work of the leading contemporary artist.

The expansive spectrum of Haegue Yang (born 1971, Seoul) flows freely between social inquiry and history, personal life and collective memory, yielding images and experiences of enormous evocative power, in which objects, figures and places are inextricably linked. Yang employs a vast array of mediums, ranging from collage, video essay and performative sculpture to large-scale installation, in an on-going process of experimentation, where chance encounters with objects and materials generate unexpected forms, emotions and narratives.

Haegue Yang. Anthology 2006?2018. Tightrope Walking and Its Wordless Shadow is a rich, fully illustrated anthology of fifteen significant essays and conversations on Yang’s work, traveling through recurring themes, such as abstraction and geometry, movement and performativity, folding and unfolding, and conveying their depth and complexity as interwoven entities.

Published in conjunction with the artist’s first solo show in Italy, organized by Fondazione Furla and La Triennale di Milano in 2018, this resourceful anthology also features an extensive photographic documentation of the exhibition as well as images of landmark pieces that represent milestones in Yang’s oeuvre since 2000.
