Haegue Yang: When The Year 2000 Comes

Kukje Gallery / Seoul / Art

Like the bottom of the ocean and its mysterious fauna, Haegue Yang and her work are a world unto itself. In Yang’s immersive, multi-sensory installations, mundane household objects like tea cozies, hair dryers, fans, cans of Spam, are re-animated as something other or alien. Viewers must find new meanings in Yang’s ambiguous deeps. “I guess that I am known as someone who is difficult to be understood,” she has said, adding, “I can live with that.” —C.J.F.
