Known for using utilitarian household items, from space heaters to extension cords, and placing them out of context, Haegue Yang’s works reflect the transitory nature of the artist’s own experience of living and working in multiple locations. Her works in video explore displacement and alienation in both geographical and personal terms through a combination of fiction and documentary. Yang’s visual, sound, and olfactory installations reveal the intersections of public and private. To this end, she often includes complex formations of ordinary Venetian blinds, which provide porous boundaries for viewers to navigate around. The installation Non-Indépliables (2006 –2011) features drying racks clothed in layers of colorful yarn or adorned with hanging lightbulbs, wires, and assorted pieces of fabric.
