Join exhibition co-curator Sarah Wall and special guests for a discussion on Haegue Yang’s work VIP’s Union in the exhibition Haegue Yang: Triple Vita Nestings.
In Yang's exhibition at the Govett-Brewster VIP’s Union ties in with earlier presentations from this series, realised in Berlin, Bristol, Antwerp, Bonn, Seoul, Graz and Cologne. Well-known local figures, ‘VIPs’, from different areas of society including culture, sports, business, and politics, are invited to lend their favourite chair or table for the duration of the exhibition. The resulting collection of assorted furniture forms a temporary ‘community’ within the gallery, creating a picture of New Plymouth and wider Taranaki while also serving as a rest area open to all visitors to the gallery, not just a few VIPs.
