Dates: 8 MAR 2019 – 26 MAY 2019
Venue: South London Gallery, London, UK
The acclaimed South Korean artist Haegue Yangbrings together recent works with new pieces conceived especially for her exhibition in the South London Gallery’s main space. On the walls, large-scale works from Yang’s Trustworthies series (ongoing since 2010) are shown alongside new Hardware Store Collages (2012-) and Lacquer Paintings (1994-), creating a visual dialogue between familiar household objects and abstraction. Yang’s interest in identity politics, movement and dance is inherent in the Dress Vehicle series. Her wider practice has been informed by the life and work of historic figures, such as Dadaist Sophie Taeuber-Arp and the spiritualist George I. Gurdjieff, albeit in often hidden ways, contributing additional layers to her exploration of ideas around migration.
