ART PAPERS 41.03 - Fall 2017
Ah is the title of a work by Young Hae Chang Heavy Industries (YHCHI), an artist duo feature in this Fall 2017 issue of ART PAPERS, which was conceived around the theme of sound--as artists’ field recordings, as graphic renderings, as aural memory or evidence, as spoken language, and of course, as music. If you interrupt “ah” with a G, you have “agh”: a frustration, the first half of the word “aghast,” an indication of pain, and perhaps the dominant sound of 2017, a year of collective outcry, derailment, struggle for self-determination, and coercion, but certainly also of revelation.
