The documenta 2012 participant Haegue Yang (b. 1971 in Seoul, living and working in Berlin and Seoul) studied with Georg Herold at the Städel School of Fine Arts in Frankfurt am Main. Yang separates everyday objects from their functional context and reconfigures them with different connotations. Her works include sculptures, installations, videos, photographs and graphics. Her subjects are transformation processes and the coexistence of individuals in communities. Works by Haegue Yangs were previously shown at, among others, Guggenheim Museum, New York (2015); Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2013); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2012); Tate Modern, London (2012); Kunsthaus Bregenz (2011); New Museum, New York (2010); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2009). She was a representative of the Korean Pavilion at the 53rd Biennale 2009 in Venice. For Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, she created the edition Windy Eclipse, in which two ventilators are merged into one moving sculpture.
