Being the Measure: David Zink Yi

When: Oct. 7-Feb. 12 2017

David Zink Yi’s first museum exhibition in the United States brings together his work in sculpture, photography, music, and video. Marking his foray into live performance, Zink Yi’s original work at WCMA fuses his interests in Afro-Caribbean music and cephalopod mollusks. His interest in the ways cultural identity finds expression through the body takes many forms. Highly detailed, life-size representations of octopus will be featured alongside a new series of large-scale wooden sound sculptures. Bodies, sounds, and words will become sculptural elements in the gallery, captured in a performance video to be presented as part of the installation.
