Tate St Ives opens the UK’s largest exhibition to date by celebrated South Korean artist Haegue Yang.
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 rituals in relation to natural phenomena. The exhibition’s title—Strange Attractors—is a concept taken from mathematics and relates to complex patterns of behaviour in chaotic natural systems. Taking this theory as a starting point, Yang’s exhibition creates an environment in which uncanny and seemingly disparate ideas, cultures, relations and time periods coexist.
For the first time at Tate St Ives, the exhibition will be staged across both the award-winning top-lit gallery in the new building and the spectacular sea-facing gallery in the original building. Yang will transform these two spaces into an open-ended exploration of geometry, abstraction and the aftermath of modernism.
