A special session with artist Anicka Yi alongside the Hyundai Commission

In her work, Anicka Yi explores the merging of technology and biology. She uses the senses to question what is shared between humans and other forms of intelligence. Her works explore how we learn and how we negotiate our environment.

This event is a chance to hear the artist talk about the commission and to ask questions. It will be moderated by Achim Borchardt-Hume, Director of Exhibitions and Programmes at Tate Modern.

Anicka Yi (born1971, Seoul) fuses artistic imagination and scientific research. Her experimental approach draws on biology, biochemistry, anthropology and philosophy. Her work speculates about the present in relation to our shared futures. This includes the evolution of artificial intelligence, climate emergency and migration. She is known for the way her works activate the senses and for experimenting with unorthodox materials.
