Coverings from building outer walls, wallpapers, interior furnishings of abandoned houses, pieces of worn-out mosquito net, tiles, ‘giwa’, traditional roof tiles which are hard to find these days, fragments of crossbeam from old mossy buildings. During the process of bringing diverse collected traces from streets to canvas, objects that once were components of streets become the start point of painting, or rather the main agent, and the artist Jazoo Yang steps back. This ‘step-back’ methodology allows her to accept more objects from streets and walls as a ‘painting’ while her spontaneous response, even passiveness to the found materials gain more importance, which lead to her ‘Material’ series. Through the whole process of collecting street objects the artist’s point of view of the cities turns more active on the contrary

Jazoo Yang is a Korean mixed media artist based in Berlin. Her work often distorts public spaces to profound ends. With a mixture of concept-focused art and an intriguing visual palette, Yang’s work questions the relationship between ourselves and the spaces we inhabit. Her more recent practice has focussed on the transformation of housing in city and the gentrification that is pushing local residents from their homes. Her 'Materials series' are an amalgamation of the diverse, the distant, and the disregarded. Formed of the lost fragments of urban life that Yang 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 magnified from the mundane, framed to acknowledge the immensity of the intimate. Yet what we see in Yang’s works could easily have been taken from the space in which they hang. (…) Yang’s works, however, show how the past, present and future are fused in the very materiality of walls.
