Featuring the artist’s consistent curiosity about the world and tireless experimentation with materialising the complexity of identity politics, “In the Cone of Uncertainty” presents a selection of Haegue Yang’s oeuvre ranging from blind installations, anthropomorphic sculptures, light sculptures, and mural-like graphic wallpaper pieces, to thematic groupings of works related to certain topics, such as domesticity spanning the last decade.
With the title, “In the Cone of Uncertainty” alluded to a future that is largely unstable and always changing, but perhaps gradually revealing its trajectory over time, the show communicates current anxieties related to climate change, overpopulation and nation-states, while highlighting thematic tensions in Yang’s work by addressing notions of movement, displacement and domesticity.
