Texts by Ute Meta Bauer, Kathy Noble; Haegue Yang interviewed by Kyla McDonald and Steinar Sekkingstad
This catalogue accompanies two parallel solo exhibitions by Haegue Yang held in the fall of 2013: “Journal of Bouba/kiki” at Glasgow Sculpture Studios (October 5–December 20, 2013); and “Journal of Echomimetic Motions” at Bergen Kunsthall (October 18–December 22, 2013). This new collaborative publication, Dare to Count Phonemes and Graphemes, has evolved within the framework of these geographically separate yet collaboratively conceived exhibitions. While each exhibition was an independent manifestation, they both are intrinsically linked to Yang’s continuous artistic evolution. The developments shown are emblematic of the artist’s recent projects, focusing on the ideas of abstraction and motion. This catalogue presents two newly commissioned texts, as well as an interview between Yang and the respective curators of the exhibitions, which explore the artist’s distinctive and diverse work.
Haegue Yang’s works are internationally appreciated and are well known for an eloquent and seductive language of visual abstraction that she often combines with direct sensory experience. She is an artist who continuously pushes the boundaries of her practice, engaging with new methodologies and ways of making. This approach is evident from her exhibitions at Glasgow Sculpture Studios and Bergen Kunsthall as well as this new publication.

The Letter E is Everywhere
La letra E está por doquier
LA LETRA E ESTÁ POR DOQUIER / THE LETTER E IS EVERYWHERE
Studio Manuel Raeder
and other related matters
Forming the central part of this exhibition LA LETRA E ESTÁ POR DOQUIER are three newly developed display structures and three new furniture objects. The display structures are a continuation of the experiments carried out by Studio Manuel Raeder in how to construct display devices that deal with showing books or an archive.
LA LETRA E ESTÁ POR DOQUIER functions like a book that contains different stories and letters. Instead of pages, the display structures and furniture allow for textile designs, objects and books that Studio Manuel Raeder has designed in the past years to be juxtaposed next to found and used objects from various encounters during a research undertaken at Oaxacan handcraft workshops. This found objects include half finished barro negro pots (black ceramic) and tin can test prints amongst many other things.
EVERYWHERE also features three newly developed furniture / objects that collapse the borders of where the work of Studio Manuel Raeder begins and where the objects on display try to relate to local forms and methods of production.
With essays by Abraham Cruzvillegas, Regina Pozo, Rodolfo Samperio, Bart van der Heide
