Yi uses unconventional materials to examine what she calls “a biopolitics of the senses”, or how assumptions and anxieties related to gender, race, and class shape physical perception. For this exhibition, Yi worked with a team of molecular biologists and forensic chemists to create an installation in which natural and technological forces appear as surging, unruly forms that are nonetheless clinically contained.
