Haegue Yang

Korean artist Haegue Yang transforms spaces so that they are constantly shifting and directing our experience. Sol LeWitt Upside Down – Open Modular Cubes (Small), Expanded 958 Times consists of 1012 white Venetian blinds, arranged into grids and suspended from the Queensland Art Gallery Watermall ceiling in an inverted and expanded rendition of the ‘open modular cube’ structures, signature works of American conceptual artist Sol LeWitt. Where LeWitt’s cubes were solid-edged, open-sided and made-to-order from industrial producers, Yang’s are impressionistic, created by arrangements of ready-made household blinds.

The work was commissioned for APT8 and acquired for the Collection with the support of Tim Fairfax AC.
