Christine Mehring and Yilmaz Dziewior about the work of Haegue Yang

Talk20 Aug2023

Join Christine Mehring, curator of David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art and professor at the University of Chicago and Dr. Yilmaz Dziewior, director of the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, for a talk on the work of Haegue Yang on Sunday 20 August 2023 at 11 am.

Christine Mehring will trace Haegue Yang’s artistic strategies to relativise the Western canon. Focusing on the notion of “quasi”, Mehring will discuss the artist’s engagement with the history of abstraction, representation, and conceptual art through her use of distinct domestic materials such as venetian blinds, commercial house paint, and spices.

Yilmaz Dziewior will trace genealogies and threads on Warrior Believer Lover – Version Sonic, a reenactment of Yang's previous installation at Kunsthaus Bregenz, realized at the time upon the invitation of Dziewior. At S.M.A.K. as well as at Kunsthaus Bregenz Yang created a panoramic sculptural field of archetypes’ portrayals.
