Published in conjunction with the exhibition, this catalog is the most extended monograph of Anicka Yi studio work to date.
The volume presents critical essays by Giovanni Aloi, art historian specializing in representations of nature, and Rachel C. Lee, professor of English literature and gender studies, along with a conversation between me and Merlin Sheldrake, biologist and writer, and two contributions by the exhibition curators. It includes an original “cosmology” conceived in collaboration with my studio: a glossary of our most significant fictional, scientific, and philosophical references. In-depth photographic documentation of the “Metaspore” show is complimented by a complete exhibition chronology, together with detailed written entries about the works on display at @pirelli_hangarbicocca.
