Haegue Yang: Anachronistic Layers of Dispersion

Haegue Yang: Anachronistic Layers of Dispersion.

In her solo exhibition at the Henry, Korean-born artist Haegue Yang takes over the museum’s East Gallery to present Towers on String – Variant Dispersed (2012/2013) and Field of Teleportation (2011). The towers constructed with venetian blinds — a material favored by the artist — occupy the totality of the gallery, creating transparent volumes in configurations that articulate the space and invite viewer participation. Field of Teleportation is the artist’s first wallpaper, made in collaboration with the Berlin-based designer, Manuel Raeder. In the wallpaper, Yang reproduces some of her key works and views of past exhibitions. The works seem flat and disembodied in what appears to be a floating, non-hierarchical archive of her production to-date.

Haegue Yang: Anachronistic Layers of Dispersion is curated by Luis Croquer, Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Collections, with generous support from Henry Season Supporter ArtsFund. Support is also provided through gifts to the Henry Now Campaign made by the Barton Family Foundation in memory of Irving Marcus; Cathy and Michael Casteel; the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation; William and Ruth True; and the Bagley and Virginia Wright Fund.
