The exhibition is taking over the entire Tate St.Ives building, occupying top-lit gallery in the new building and the suggestive sea-facing gallery in the original building. The artist is transforming the space with her immersive installations which are usually made up of a wide range of materials such as industrially made objects, interwoven with labour-intensive and craft-based processes. These processes reflect pagan cultures and their deep connection with various seasonal rituals in relation to natural phenomena.
The exhibition’s title “Strange Attractors” is inspired by concepts of mathematics and relates to complex patterns of behaviour in chaotic natural systems. Taking this theory as a starting point, Yang’s exhibition creates an environment in which uncanny and seemingly disparate ideas, cultures, relations and time periods coexist.
