Anicka Yi uses perishable and impermanent media in her works to investigate relationships between materials and materialism, consumption and consumerism. Her work probes the sensorial experience of art, exploring the use of scent as a reaction to the predominant presentation of art as visual.
Anicka Yi lives and works in New York, USA. In 2013, she had a solo show at Lars Friedrich, Berlin, Germany, and her work was included in the 12th Biennale de Lyon, France, as well as in group shows at Studiolo, Zurich, Switzerland; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, USA; T293, Rome, Italy; Museum fur Gegenwartskunst, Basel, Switzerland; Murray Guy, New York; and Altman Siegel, San Francisco, USA. In 2014, she will have a solo show at 47 Canal, New York.
Sponsored in partnership with the William Bronson and Grayce Slovet Mitchell Lectureship in Fiber and Material Studies.
