Haegue Yang works primarily in sculpture, video, and installation. Her practice stems from an interest in the subtle irregularities and minute possibilities that destabilize conventional order. Through deliberate acts of erasing, misplacing, or rearranging the ordinary, Yang’s work directs attention to the underlying structures that regulate perception and experience. Yang received her BFA from Seoul National University, Fine Arts College in 1994, and her MA from Städelschule Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in 1999. Her works have been exhibited internationally including the Carnegie International, Pittsburgh; Kunsthalle Hamburg; and Sala Rekalde, Bilbao. Yang also represented Korea at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009.
