Statens Museum for Kunst, Denmark
March 5 – July 24, 2022
In the spring of 2022, SMK will host a major exhibition of the internationally acclaimed South Korean artist Haegue Yang. This exhibition brings together new and existing works spanning installation and sculpture. The artist is renowned for creating multi-sensorial works that often engage with diverse notions of movement. Her works explore the entangled contrasts between pagan culture and modernism, industry and craft, tradition and sci-fi, and vulnerability and control.
