Anicka Yi

Born in 1971 at Séoul, Corée

Fried flowers, expired powdered milk, crisps, and snail mucus—Anicka Yi’s favoured materials are all perishable substances. Often immersed in glycerine, resin, or wax, her sensorial creations point to her interest in both chemical and techno-sensual experiments with substantial psychological value.

Born in 1971 in Seoul, Anicka Yi received the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in 2011. She lives and works in New York.
