From Saturday 18 May to Sunday 16 June, Agnès B. Gallery Boutique presents Unknown Technics, a solo exhibition by artist yang02.


yang02’s work has focused on (post)capitalism, energy issues, degrowth and the political and social impact of advanced technologies. His work has presented a new approach to the future, which is often thought of from a progressivist perspective, but which considers the future from a broader and more diverse perspective.


This exhibition, his last in Japan before moving to the US, updates the body of work presented since the Corona Disaster and consolidates it into a single theme: the self-propelled Segway that acted like a viewer in his 2018 work, Contemporary Viewer, is now replaced by an electric wheelchair, tour guide in a non-barrier-free space. The work Device for Graffiti, which strongly reflects yang02’s background in graffiti, uses the words “I HATE FAST FASHION” from Agnès Böhne as its title and is drawn using discarded clothing as a support. The venue will be composed of six groups of works. In this exhibition, yang02 explores a new understanding of technology, and with humour sheds light on alternative values and possibilities that are often overlooked in everyday life.
