press: the works of haegue yang, korean contemporary artist, conjure uncanny reminders of rituals and fairy tales, and the mysterious ‘other’

Haegue Yang might well be talking about her own art when describing how she felt about one particularly mystifying book by Marguerite Duras.

“There is no ‘click’ [she snaps her fingers]. It is not art that you ‘get’. It is very much about lingering. There is no wisdom on how to live life. It is totally useless. But you keep getting attracted back and you have to deal with it,” she said of the French writer’s Malady of Death.
