YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES is a two-artist collective based in Seoul, South Korea. In 1999 Young-Hae ChanG received a Ph.D. in aesthetics from the University of Paris. Marc Voge is an American poet based in Seoul. Their art is commonly classified as Web-art and is characterized by fast-moving, text-based animation composed in Macromedia Flash. A mix of animated red or black and white typography, a monochromatic background, jazz music and humour is the basis for their complex and evocative stories. These narratives offer compelling stories about sex, violence, alienation, identities and ideologies. Often politically pointed, their art questions the essence of human life. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, for its contribution to Online Art, recognized the work of the two artists composing the YHCHI. In 2001 the two artists were awarded a grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants. YOUNG-HAE-CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES had exhibitions, amongst which The first at Moderna: YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2007), Playback, Muse d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, MAM/ARC Paris (2007), 10th Istanbul Biennial (2007), 27th São Paulo Biennial (2006), Building the Unthinkable, Apexart, New York (2004), 50th Venice Biennial (2003).
