Yu Ji: Wasted Mud is the artist’s first publication and is produced to accompany her solo exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery in 2021; her first institutional show outside of Asia. The richly illustrated catalogue presents an in-depth exploration of Yu Ji’s practice to date – spanning sculpture, installation, performance and video – that is motivated by the investigation of the concept of place and the specific interplay between the human body and our surroundings.
Produced as a bilingual publication in English and Mandarin Chinese, the book features newly commissioned texts contributed by curator Polly Staple; artist and poet Yan Jun and curator Jo-ey Tang, as well as an interview with the artist by Ellen Greig, Senior Curator at Chisenhale Gallery. The book is designed by Jules Estèves.
Wasted Mud is co-published by Chisenhale Gallery, with Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther und Franz König, Sadie Coles HQ, London and Kiang Malingue, Hong Kong.
