Anicka Yi

This piece by Anicka Yi is called Sister and was made in 2011. It is made up of a red turtleneck and  tempura fried flowers. She likes the idea of deep frying the objects because it attributes to the senses and can show pain and fragility. She liked how you can used violent techniques on delicate objects to expose vulnerability. Flowers are always seen as purity. The stems are dipped in batter and then in panko crumbs and placed in the deep fryer. She likes how radical art has shifted to the culinary side of things. I really enjoyed this piece because it kind of pulls you in and makes you actually want to touch the flowers to see what they feel like. I love how she used a bright colored shirt to contrast with the muted colors from the flowers.
