Haegue Yang: Latitudes Anniversary Tote Bag (ONLY 1 LEFT!)

25.00 50.00

This bag is one of four limited-edition silkscreened totes produced on the occasion of our Barcelona friends,  Latitudes’ 10th Anniversary. The bags are made from natural durable cotton canvas with a reinforced base. Each tote features a press-stud closure, an internal pocket with a zip (never loose your keys again!), an adjustable shoulder strap, as well as smaller handles for carrying like a briefcase.

The full tote edition has been featured in the exhibition “A short history of the art book bag (and the things that go in them)” (24 August–24 October 2015) at the Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong curated by Ingrid Chu (Curator of Public Programmes).

The graphic featured on Haegue Yang’s bag is based on Eclectic Totemic – wallpaper created in collaboration with designers OK-RM (Oliver Knight and Rory McGrath) for her solo show at the Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Strasbourg, in 2013. Developed through the surrealist principle of Exquisite Corpse, geometric composites were comprised of fragmentary portraits of individuals who have informed Haegue’s work. With the face of Romain Gary and the chin of George Orwell, this totem references two literary works in which elephants are symbols for an exploration of human morality – Orwell’s 1936 essay ‘Shooting an Elephant’ and Gary’s 1956 novel The Roots of Heaven. Haegue formed a part of Latitudes’s exhibition Sequelism Part 3 (2009). Furthermore, Max Andrews of Latitudes has written on her work for catalogues including Symmetric Inequality, Sala Rekalde; Life on Mars 55th Carnegie International; and Sense & Sustainability, Urdaibai Arte.
