Yi fully transforms the Dean Jensen Gallery’s main street floor space with an installation titled “Terraform,” a word loosely meaning a new and/or altered space for human visitation or habitation. In the artist’s own words, the intention of his large, ambitious, immersive creation is to challenge viewers with “conflicting contexts of place, setting, and their own sense of orientation….” A multi-disciplinary artist, Yi has a wide reputation for creating works that not only employ such traditional media as painting, drawing, photography, and video, but also, surprisingly, such Home Depot-purchased whatnots as Styrofoam, plastic sheeting, pegboards and electrical wiring. Yi is a professor at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and a recent recipient of a coveted Joan Mitchell Foundation award. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Milwaukee, as well as in such countries as China, Japan, Korea, Austria and Italy.
