Haegue Yang, an artist active on the international art stage, is participating in the Performa Biennial, taking place in various venues across New York City from November 1 to 19, 2023. Founded in 2004 by art historian and curator RoseLee Goldberg, Performa is a non-profit organization that presents new forms of art within the context of performance.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the Performa Biennial invites world-renowned artists, including Korea’s Haegue Yang, as well as notable artists such as Julien Creuzet, Marcel Dzama, and Nikita Gale. Many of them are presenting works utilizing performance for the first time. Haegue Yang is scheduled to present a piece at the Guggenheim, where an actor will recite Marguerite Duras’ 1982 novel The Malady of Death.

On the beach resort of Comporta in Portugal, the renowned Brazilian gallery Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel is hosting its third summer exhibition, and Haegue Yang is part of this group exhibition. The first part, which opened in early July, focused on the perception of the natural world and the relationship between organic spaces and architectural spaces. The second part, running from August 5 to 31, centers on the expression of bodily forms and cognitive processes.

In light of this, NEO2, a Spanish magazine with a 25-year history, has also covered Haegue Yang’s artistic world.
