In Haegue Yang’s installation works, movement and sound are of prime importance to how the viewer experiences the work. This video offers us the opportunity to see some of the sculptures and installations from Yang’s current solo exhibition in situ at The Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul. Comprised of materials like brass bells and electric fans, we can watch the moving elements of these sculptures in motion and experience the sounds they make. The artist urges the audience to experience the works for themselves, without becoming too concerned about the meaning and intention behind them.
