press: haegue yang’s “sonic rescue ropes”

During the opening night in November 2021 of M+, the new museum of visual culture in Hong Kong, Sonic Rescue Ropes (2021–22), a commissioned work by South Korean artist Haegue Yang, was activated for the first time. The slim silver ropes made from thousands of tiny bells filled the cavernous atrium and lobby spaces with a monotone jingle that echoed upwards from the institution’s lower level, punctuating the commotion of the evening.
