Haegue Yang’s ‘Floating Knowledge and Growing Craft – Silent Architecture Under Construction’ was a piece in Yang’s debut installation titled ‘Journal of Bouba/kiki’ in 2013 at the Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve looked at this piece in particular due to the structural architecture behind this piece with thoughts of my upcoming degree show. Yang’s interests and influences of her artwork come from the economy of labour, handicraft alongside fabrication and movement, all to which are evident looking at this piece. These sculptures contain intense detail which requires an intense standard of labour. The innocence of use of the colour white makes them appear very elegant and natural. They look as though they could be positioned in amongst nature – in the woods, surrounded by trees and the earth and it would look very belonging. There are many different patterns and stitches/techniques within these sculptures which is what makes it so interesting to look at, with alternative detail for the viewer to discover at every glance.
