When the Year 2000 Comes / Haegue Yang
Sep 3 - Nov 17, 2019
Kukje Gallery
Seoul, South Korea

In this ongoing investigation, the artist develops a pluralistic and personal approach to the concepts of subjectivity, culture, and time. This exhibition transforms the gallery space into a field of imagination and solidarity in which multi-sensory elements evoked by a series of sonic and mobile sculptures generate an engaging platform for the audience.

The exhibition’s title, When the Year 2000 Comes, derives from Korean singer Hae-kyung Min’s “AD 2000,” a song released back in 1982. The song, which wistfully dreams of the future, welcomes visitors on the way to the exhibition. Situated in a future far beyond the one described in the lyrics, the audience is reminded of the bygone hopes of the distant past. In other words, the temporality of the year 2000 embodies both the past and future; we are able to traverse the sentiments of time frozen in the song and perceive its complexities.

The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
