(...) During her residencies (Busan, Berlin, Paris, London), Yang visited various urban peripheries as well as decaying, neglected city areas, gathering layers of old wall paint and pieces of broken tile while there. In Site Collective these seemingly insignificant 'materials' collected from the streets are transformed into artistic objects exhibiting intrinsic value. Bits of discarded material believed to be worthless in value are displayed in the form of paintings suddenly exhibiting their own historical meaning. By being framed and solidified with resin these shattered pieces cannot simply be reproduced again by a mechanical process. In the contemporary urban landscape continuously under threat from encroaching gentrification, Yang delves deeper into the problem of loneliness and it’s resulting isolation. Through her work, audiences can reconsider the “worth” of urban debris with transformed notions of time and space. - Jazoo Yang Solo Show 'Site Collective' 2019, Space K, Korea

Born in South Korea Live & work : Berlin <-> South Korea Jazoo Yang is a Korean mixed media artist based in Berlin. She often distorts public spaces to profound ends. With a mixture of concept-focused art and an intriguing visual palette, she questions the relationship between ourselves and the spaces that we inhabit. Her more recent practice has focused on the transformation of housing in the city and the gentrification that is pushing local residents from their homes. The 'Materials Series' is an amalgamation of the diverse, the distant, and the disregarded. Formed of the lost fragments of urban life that she rescues before their inevitable disappearance – remnants of a building’s outer walls, scraps of wallpaper from an interior, the remains of antique tiles – these often silent, ignored objects are here transformed from the mundane, and framed to acknowledge the immensity of the intimate. Furthermore, while developing projects related to the issues of redevelopment, Yang keeps an interest in what the original senses of human beings might be like within the rapid changes of a city. The speed of city life runs much faster than that of the human body, thus enforcing its speed on the people living in that city. This situation, maybe even a violent one, may damage delicate aspects of the human senses. Yang is not only concerned with the material elements that make up our cities and about those living there, she also devotes herself to the details of natural systems, which unfold in urban space, yet remain invisible.
