Anicka Yi: Hyundai Commission




The latest Hyundai Commission for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall is undertaken this year by Anicka Yi.

Anicka Yi (b.1971, Seoul) fuses artistic imagination and scientific research. Drawing on disciplines as wide-ranging as biology, biochemistry, anthropology and philosophy, her work speculates about the present in relation to our shared futures including the evolution of artificial intelligence, climate emergency and migration. She is known for the way her works activate different senses and for experimenting with unorthodox materials that have ranged from tempura batter to kombucha leather.

Yi’s captivating new work for Tate Modern will be her largest and most ambitious project to date, continuing the highly experimental cross-disciplinary approach she has become known for.
