Artist Anicka Yi’s work involves scent, tactility and perishability as a means to reconfigure the epistemological and sensorial terms of a predominantly visual art world. Yi is not only interested in materials research, but also what collaboration between individuals and disciplines might mean in relation to friendship. Drawing upon philosophical and critical writings, Yi explores the political and ethical ramifications of these interactions. Yi lives and works in New York City.
