    About The Work

    Anicka Yi examines the exhilarating and bizarre potentiality of the body and organic matter with current advancements in material and cosmetic technology. Incarcerated Scarfaces is a series of unique ceramic casts of a single tempura-fried flower coated with resin, a delicate and perishable organic object, battered and fried, and then preserved in acrylic. The ceramic casts are carefully hand-painted to resemble the original fried flower, and each sculpture is backed with a gold pin suggesting its potential wearability. Yi's work was included in the 2012 SculptureCenter exhibition "A Disagreeable Object."
