This exhibition brings together new and existing works spanning installation, sculpture, drawing, collage and painting. Haegue Yang is renowned for creating immersive environments from a diverse range of materials. Her sculptures and installations often use 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 context of St Ives, and the Cornish landscape and its ancient archaeological heritage are important points of inspiration.

Haegue Yang: Strange Attractors is the first exhibition at Tate St Ives to take place across both the award-winning top-lit gallery in the new building and the spectacular sea-facing gallery in the original building.

 
Born in South Korea in 1971, Haegue Yang is based in Berlin and Seoul and teaches at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main.
