Haegue Yang

Haegue Yang creates installations that include photographic, video, and sculptural elements and are informed by her philosophical and political researchs. Responding to the places where she exhibits, Yang creates site-specific new work that incorporates both the architecture of the exhibition space and materials gathered from the region. Her highly refined and yet particular sense of materiality, combined with an elegant sense of space and atmosphere, contribute to her enveloping and resonant installations.

Haegue Yang was awarded the Wolfgang Hahn Prize by the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst, Museum Ludwig, Cologne in 2018 and the 13th Benesse Prize at the Singapore Biennale in 2022.
