易承桃 / Chengtao Yi
Chengtao Yi is a Chinese interdisciplinary artist based in New York. Yi observes the world’s cultural and spiritual condition through the lenses of man-made objects throughout history. His practice explores objects’ conception and production, distribution, consumption, and modularity within the systems. He investigates and plays with the ontology of ordinary objects, both physical and virtual, alongside the various technological and cultural backgrounds that conceive them and their materiality. In his current practice, Yi uses various media such as sculpture, installation, photography, video, and digital media to construct specific visual and conceptual narratives for the arguments and speculation to manifest.
