Along with her widely renowned body of sculptures and installations, Haegue Yang has consistently showcased two-dimensional work, incorporating the unpredictable juxtaposition and arrangement of images of everyday objects. Yang’s signature Hardware Store Collage series feature cut-out images of tools and materials from various hardware store catalogues. Hardware Store Collage – Y-Mag Hair Dryers, In-Ear Headphones and Selfie Sticks #1 is a collage of cut-out images including hair dryers, in-ear headphones, and selfie sticks from a magazine. This peculiar yet harmonious composition of images of objects, which all differ in form and utilitarian purpose, demonstrates Yang’s signature visual lexicon while questioning the value of these domestic objects beyond their practicalities.

양혜규는 알려진 조각과 설치 외에도 일상의 사물을 예측 불가한 방식으로 병치 및 배열하는 평면 작업을 꾸준히 선보여왔다. 대표적인 연작 <건축 자재상 콜라쥬>는 건축 자재 카탈로그에서 각종 도구와 자재의 이미지를 오려내어 평면에 구성한 작품이다. 특히 <건축 자재상 콜라쥬 – 와이-맥 헤어드라이어, 인이어 헤드폰과 셀카봉 #1>는 잡지에서 발견한 헤어드라이어, 헤드폰, 셀카봉의 이미지를 오려내어 배치한 작업이다. 각기 다른 형태와 쓰임새를 가진 평범한 사물은 조화를 이루며 특유의 시각적 어휘로 변모하는데, 작가는 이를 통해 사물의 일반적 실용성 이상의 가치에 물음을 던진다.
