Haegue Yang was born in 1971 in Seoul, Korea. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Seoul, Korea. Acclaimed for her minimal yet exquisite installations, Haegue continuously explores the conceptual relationships of and between systems, structures, dependence and co-dependence.


Haegue Yang's art resists a defining medium, engaging instead with a range of means, from wall drawing to books, sculpture, installation, moving image, and photography. The oblique self-analysis that Yang uses as both strategy and substance in her "placeless" art is symptomatic of someone who has lived for many years outside of her native country and whose life and work entail the high-mobility and in-transit condition common to many contemporary artists operating internationally. This acute sense of provisional belonging--being at home in what is foreign and feeling foreign in what is home--lends Yang's work a hair-trigger sensitivity for the inflections of quotidian experience as well as public and private territories. She has described her practice in terms of a poetic activism. In 2009 she is participating in the International Venice Biennial exhibition as well as representing South Korea in the Korean pavilion.
