  • From a distance, Haegue Yang’s Sonic Rescue Ropes appears inconsequential; look closer and its fat cords remind one of the ropes church bell ringers pull
  • Yet they are covered in thousands of bells, and when M+ museum staff ‘activate’ them by shaking them, they remind one of how bells are rung in Korean temples.
