Anicka Yi’s work operates around a series of connections between materials and materialism, states of perishability and their relationship to meaning and value, consumerist digestion and cultural metabolism, stomachs as a biological metaphor for both the individual and society, scent and the fragrance industry as memory machine and post-humanist theory with it’s sociopolitical implications for the body and the senses… Yi [b. 1971, Seoul, South Korea] lives and works in New York. Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at White Columns, NY; Bortolomi, NY; The Artist’s Institute, NY; Karma International, Zurich; Gavin Brown’s enterprise, NY; The X-Initiative, NY  as well as two person shows at 179 Canal, NY; and solo shows at Rüdiger Schöttle Gallery, Munich; The Green Gallery, Milwaukee; and 47 Canal, NY.
