in The Voice of Things
July 27, 2021 – February 5, 2023
Centre Pompidou x Westbund Museum, Shanghai
Haegue Yang presents the installation Lingering Nous in the new group exhibition The Voice of Things, a selection of works in the Centre Pompidou collection presented at the Westbund Museum in Shanghai.
The new exhibition brings together a collection of emblematic works, ranging from the avant-gardes of the early 20th century testifying to the revolution in aesthetic norms and the very status of the work of art, to the most recent artist creations that question our globalised world, and illustrates the importance of the object in the history of modernity. The route unfurls through the vast spaces of Galleries 1 and 2 and features, in chronological order, major works from Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger to Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, from Jean Tinguely to Tatiana Trouvé and Haegue Yang.
Yang’s blind installations, her most notable work category over the past decade, employ her signature material of Venetian blinds. Consisting of ca. 166 Venetian blinds in iridescent green and pink, Lingering Nous addresses the monumental nature of blind installations, while also unexpectedly featuring blinds installed askew.
