HAEGUE YANG X AÏSHTI BY THE SEA
We bring good news for all art lovers: Aïshti is delighted to announce that Korean contemporary artist Haegue Yang will be installing her artworks on Aïshti by the Sea’s windows, in collaboration with Galerie Chantal Crousel, titled “Quasi – Pagan Seasonal Shift”.
Yang’s work is all about hybrid combinations that challenge different notions such as crafts vs. modernity, real vs. supernatural, geometric vs. organic. For example, she uses typical household objects and everyday materials such as Venetian blinds and straw and transforms them in interesting ways, drawing her inspiration from cultural references linked to political and social phenomena. The « Pagan » relates to the pagan dances in composer Igor Stravinsky’s Sacre du Printemps.
After her most recent installation at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, she’s bringing 10 of those works especially to be installed at Aïshti by the Sea.
The display will run until the end of January 2017.
