Two for Tuesday: Art Cubes

I was in Saskatoon last week for a conference, and when I had a spare moment post-conference, I opted to visit the Remai Modern. What a good decision that was! I was in awe of the building and the art, and if you follow me on Instagram (#WhiteCabanaGoestoSaskatoon), then you know that I couldn’t stop posting about it!

There was plenty of white in the spaces and in the art, but one of the most impressive exhibits was Haegue Yang’s Sol LeWitt Upside Down. Is it ever cool! Haegue Yang is a South Korean artist who lives and works in Berlin and Seoul.

If you look closely, you can see that these cubes are composed of blinds. Window blinds!

What I learned from Kayla (one of the Remai Modern guides) is that Haegue Yang’s piece was inspired by American artist Sol LeWitt‘s Incomplete Open Cubes.
