David Zink Yi tackles aspects of identity formation and world construction, defining the term identity as the product of an analytical, formative process, rather than a development evaluated exclusively in cultural terms. While in his objects and installations, minimalist, reduced elements are fused with deliberately opulent ones to create an aesthetic language of form, in his filmic work the artist shows music and body language as isolated fragments, resulting in emotion and expression being made abstract. Sound and choice of picture motif reflect here the fragments of a personal, social and political situation. In 2005 David Zink Yi took part in the MAK Scholars Program in the Mackey Apartments, Los Angeles.
