Known for her multi-sensory approach to art making, Anicka Yi has radically expanded the notion of what an artwork can be and transformed exhibitions into embodied encounters. Drawing on a notion of otherness rooted in scent and taste, atypical sensoria for the visual arts realm, Yi’s works allow her audience to viscerally experience complex issues relating to social prejudice, racism, ecology, climate change, biological extinction, machines and machine learning.
