Anicka Yi is the mixed-media artist specializing in ‘olfactic‘ art that will make your glomerulus go gaga. Hailing from South Korea, she works mainly with fragrances, perfumed pieces, and interactive sculptures that emit freaky and funky scents. “Smell is a form of sculpture, because it has a lot of volume,” she says. As the newest recipient of the Hugo Boss Art Prize 2016, Anicka just won a handsome hundred thousand dollars for her avant-garde aromas and will show a solo exhibit at the Guggenheim next year. “We are particularly compelled by the way Anicka’s sculptures and installations make public and strange, and thus newly addressable, our deeply subjective corporeal realities,” said the judges. “We also admire the unique embrace of discomfort in her experiments with technology, science, and the plant and animal worlds, all of which push at the limits of perceptual experience in the ‘visual’ arts.” Smells like success to us! Ka-Ching.
