In the lobby
YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, formed in 1999 and based in Seoul, South Korea, is a two-artist collective composed of Young-hae Chang (South Korea) and Marc Voge (U.S.). The artists use Adobe Flash to synchronize rapidly-moving text with jazz scores, creating videos that blur the boundary between poetry and moving image. Their works—ranging from provocative noir fantasies to tongue-in-cheek manifestos—address themes of identity, sexuality, and politics. AMERICAN MESHUGGANA, commissioned for the Museum’s 50-foot-wide lobby wall, winds its way from an imaginary Chinese restaurant in Astoria to Nazi-occupied Paris in a moody daydream of assumed identities and tangled ambitions.
