based in both seoul and berlin, korean artist haegue yang [1971] is known for using mundane objects and materials, ranging from industrial mass-produced items to organic and immaterial things such as smells or noises as well, to create intricate and nuanced installations. yang was invited by the kindl – centre for contemporary art in the german capital to present a single work in its 20-metre-high boiler house. opening today [5pm-9pm] is her installation called silo of silence – clicked core, an intricately constructed piece which is constructed from the artist's signature material: window blinds. it's also indicative that her working method is labour-intensive both conceptually and in regard to the craftsmanship involved [on through may 2018]. location: kindl – centre for contemporary art, am sudhaus 3 [neukölln].
