Public Program:
New Museum First Saturdays for Families: Voice and Wind: Haegue Yang
December 4 2010
Explore the installation Series of Vulnerable Arrangements—Voice and Wind (2009)—a labyrinthine system of stacked venetian blinds, industrial fans, and scent atomizers that transforms the New Museum’s lobby gallery into an immersive experience. Flooded with natural light, the artwork evokes shadows of places and experiences not physically present. Sensory stimuli trigger our memory. The smell of wet soil is unmistakable. Wind and sunlight on our faces may help us remember a fun day. Enter Yang’s sensory environment and have a conversation with members of your family or close friends and discover what wonderful and unexpected memories are evoked from a sensory experience with an artwork. Then participate in an action-based workshop and produce a work of art inspired by the memories evoked by the exhibition.
