David Zink Yi (b. 1973, Lima, Peru) lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Zink Yi’s practice is concerned with themes of creation, manifestation and the construction of identity. His multi-disciplinary practice,comprising of film, photography, sculpture, performance and ceramics, are often a reflection of his own life experiences. He is also known for his multi-channel video installations, most of which revolve around the experience of music, analysing between individualism and cooperation and between regulation and expression. Building on the principles inherent to the Afro-Cuban music tradition, Zink Yi places his focus on the performative strength of the protagonists framing the body as a medium of expression and space of resonance. Recent exhibitions include Haus der Kunst, Germany (2018); König Galerie, Germany (2016); 8th Berlin Biennale, Germany (2014); and 55th Venice Biennale, Italy (2013).
