YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES

-> work in the exhibition

[ROK]

artists project

YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES was founded in Seoul by Young-hae Chang, C.E.O., and Marc Voge, C.I.O. It combines text with jazz to create Web pieces that present, for instance, a Homeric hero searching for sublime meaning in the insignificance of a life lived anywhere but where it seemingly counts; Asian businessmen and bar hostesses drinking the night away; a man who dies and is reborn as a stick; a Korean cleaning lady who is really a French philosopher; an illegal immigrant in a holding cell under the Justice Palace, in Paris; a woman who sexually embraces corporate monopoly; an evening with Sam Beckett in a bordello; a night roundup followed by an execution; the Riviera; Saul.
