Mickey Yang (b.1988) is a multidisciplinary artist, living and working in The Hague, who creates immersive multimedia installations consisting of objects, videos and performances.

Often, her installations come to life: the sculptures move, vibrate and rotate, frequently synchronous with narrative elements such as video and sound. Her practice explores image representation, astonishment, mass culture, the subjective experience of our collective memory and the search for material culture and (traditional) craftsmanship. Yang works with bronze, aluminium and plastic, using laborious processes such as moulding and casting – techniques which are global and universal, used throughout history and across cultures. Using these materials, she plays with stereotypical notions of what art should look like, challenging that almost religious veneration for a finished piece.
