Anicka Yi, Of All Things Orange or Macedonian Wine, 2015


Anicka Yi’s work is concerned with ecosystems and how humans and machines might inhabit the world together in new ways. Tactility and scent are employed to reconfigure the sensorial order of a predominantly visual art world. Yi often uses organic materials such as tempura fried flowers, fish oil and bacteria, manipulating and transforming elements through a process that draws on scientific approaches and philosophical enquiry.
