YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES at the New Museum

(2)

Documentation of BLACK ON WHITE, GRAY ASCENDING (2007) a new work by Seoul-based collective YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES commissioned for the New Museum. In BLACK ON WHITE, the artists have expanded their usual single-channel format to create an unprecedented seven-channel installation that evokes a chilling story of abduction and assassination from seven separate points of view, set to an eerily laid-back bossa nova score.
