The acclaimed South Korean artist Haegue Yang brings together recent works with new pieces conceived especially for her exhibition in the South London Gallery’s main space.
On the walls, large-scale works from Yang’s Trustworthies series (ongoing since 2010) are shown alongside new Hardware Store Collages (2012- ) and Lacquer Paintings (1994- ), creating a visual dialogue between familiar household objects and abstraction.
Inspired by the potential of the SLG's Main Gallery space to be a ballroom, two large wheeled Dress Vehicle sculptures take centre stage. Their powder-coated aluminium frames dressed with venetian blinds and brass and nickel-plated bells create a quiet yet distinctive rattle when activated by performers. The rattling of the moving vehicles traces the unevenness of the floor and intermingles with sound works positioned around the space.
The Sonic Dress Vehicles are activated daily at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, and every Wednesday and last Friday at 7pm.
