Anicka Yi
7,070,430K of Digital Spit, A Memoir  2015
24 x 20,5 cm, edition of 500
Kunsthalle Basel

Condition: New 

7,070,430K of Digital Spit, a Memoir is the outcome of a renegade artistic gesture: Anicka Yi took the very first monograph on her oeuvre, the recently published 6,070,430K of Digital Spit, and reprinted its contents on handmade incense paper impregnated with an original fragrance devised by Yi in collaboration with the perfumer Barnabé Fillion, to embody the smell of forgetting.

This publication was produced for and is the centrepiece of Yi’s exhibition 7,070,430K of Digital Spit at Kunsthalle Basel, 2015.

Collectors of 7,070,430K of Digital Spit, a Memoir are invited to literally “burn after reading,” thereby releasing the embedded fragrance even as they destroy the contents of this lavishly illustrated overview of Yi’s production. Now incorporating scent, chemical transformation, entropy, and combustion, this limited edition artwork-as-publication not only pictures but also actually performs the themes and operations that preoccupy Yi’s entire practice.
