    About The Work

    This limited-edition hanging sculpture is designed by artist Anicka Yi. Each ornament is 3D-printed and then individually hand-painted to mimic the artist's large-scale kelp "pod" sculptures. Yi's iconic kelp sculptures have been featured at Venice Biennale, Pirelli HangarBicocca, The Warehouse Dallas, Bourse de Commerce, and The Indianapolis Museum of Art, among other venues.

    Informed by scientific research, biology, and perfumers, Anicka Yi has produced an extensive and unique body of work at the intersection of politics and macrobiotics. Her practice questions the increasingly hazy taxonomic distinctions between what is human, animal, plant, and machine. Through an alchemical experimentation process, often exploring incompatible materials, Yis work delves into the cultural conditioning of sense and perception in what she describes as a "biopolitics of the senses." Yi's work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan; Tate Modern, London; and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; among many others.
