Oktopus (Octopus)

David Zink Yi, who was born in Lima, Peru, but works in Berlin, has an extremely wide-ranging practice incorporating film, photography, sculpture, performance, ceramics, and – as here – small scale bronze sculpture. He is fascinated by octopi, which are among the world’s smartest animals and have a distributed form of intelligence, which seems to permeate their elastic bodies. Zink Yi creates fragmentary portraits of these underwater creatures, signifying their status as elusive and alien, distant from us yet deeply compelling.
