We are thrilled to share Yu Ji’s new, commissioned work, Stone, Barnacles, and Seeds (2022) by Audemars Piguet Contemporary. Curated by Li Qi, this latest artwork is on view at West Bund Art & Design 2022.

Stone, Barnacles, and Seeds (2022) is made of up of several integrating elements including sculpture, video and performance that revolve around imagery of water and build on Yu Ji’s thematic practice, namely the exploration of time, decay, and the intersection between humans and the natural world. Over the course of the four-day exhibition, from 10 to 13 November 2022, the artwork will evolve, presenting a fleeting moment in constant process. The sculptural elements of Stone, Barnacles, and Seeds are the artist’s largest to date and she incorporated new methods of fabrication, working with the erosion of metal for the first time.
