Haegue Yang

In the Cone of Uncertainty



ISBN: 9783775746298 Category:


Haegue Yang’s artworks are known not only for their diversity of media and methods, but also for their eloquent and seductive sculptural language of conceptual abstraction, often derived from her research on figures and events throughout history, as well as inquiries into folk and traditional craft techniques. Bringing together new and existing works spanning the last decade, Haegue Yang’s solo exhibition In the Cone of Uncertainty at The Bass foregrounds the artist’s consistent curiosity about the world and tireless experimentation with materializing the complexity of identity politics and its ever-changing parameters. Its companion publication highlights a substantial selection of Yang’s oeuvre, including blind installations, anthropomorphic works, and light sculptures, with an expanded focus on her growing series of mural-like graphic wall pieces.
