(...) 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 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.
