The Cleveland Museum of Art


In 2013 Yi began a trilogy of exhibitions to explore, as she has written, “the forensics of loss and longing,” creating work inspired by the very human emotions we attach to romance and daily life: Denial, Divorce, and now, Death. Following gallery shows in Berlin and New York, the Transformer Station at The Cleveland Museum of Art hosted the culmination of Yi’s trilogy, which analyzed the acceptance of what it means to be human. Presenting artworks from earlier in her career as well as new pieces making their debut in Cleveland, Anicka Yi: Death includes a unique installation design that evokes both the sterility associated with death and the flurry of life before the final breath.
