PUBLIC TALK AND BOOK LAUNCH - SONAE//SERRALVES COMMISSION: HAEGUE YANG
22 OCT 2016

With Haegue Yang, artist, and Suzanne Cotter, curator of the Sonae//Serralves Commission and Director of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art. 

For its latest Sonae//Serralves Commission, the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art presents An Opaque Wind Park in Six Folds by Korean artist Haegue Yang (Seoul, 1971) in the contemporary gardens of the Serralves Park. The newly commissioned work is composed of five partially arched towers, of varying dimensions constructed from brick and connected via a geometric layout of paving stones. Occupying an area of almost 70 square metres, this ambitious sculptural complex invites the viewer to walk around and between the hybrid landscape of its multiplying structures. 

An Opaque Wind Park in Six Folds will be the basis of the conversation between Haegue Yang and Suzanne Cotter – to be conducted in English– in which they will address the development process of this work.

To accompany the Commission, Serralves has published a bilingual fully illustrated book documenting the creation of the new sculptural work together with a survey of selected previous work by the artist and a new essay by the commission curator Suzanne Cotter.
