Haegue Yang speaks about major NGA acquisition

Haegue Yang reflects on the acquisition of her major exhibition by the National Gallery of Australia.

Haegue Yang’s exhibition, Changing From From To From, opened this past week at the National Gallery of Australia (NGA). The occasion marked the announcement of the acquisition of several major artworks by Yang, which form this room-sized installation.

Living between Seoul and Berlin, Yang is a deeply celebrated and in high demand artist, who seeks out uncharted narratives, processes and materials, often combining industrial objects with craft-based techniques to question human/nature relationships.
