Haegue Yang

VIP´s Union – Phase II


Opening: Opening Phase II: 14.02.2018, 7 pm
Curated by: Barbara Steiner
Co-Curator: Katrin Bucher Trantow
Venue: Space02

The Korean artist Haegue Yang intiated the VIP's Union in Berlin in 2001 and adapted it for establishment in Graz in 2017. Initially, "very important persons" from the city and province were asked to choose a chair or table that could be placed in a "VIP Room". The Kunsthaus Graz decided to invite specific, important people to visit. These loaned items replaced the furniture normally used in the Kunsthaus and significantly altered the appearance of the institution over a period of nine months. In February, the objects will be moved to Space02 and exhibited in a staging developed by the artist. The VIP's Union Graz will conclude with the release of a publication dedicated to the entire series of works.
