Yu Ji’s work encompasses installation, performance and running an art space in Shanghai that supports experimental practices; but the process of sculpting remains central to her way of working. She is absorbed in the idea of creating something out of time, space and movement, bringing the otherwise immaterial into physical being, often with a minimal use of materials.
“I like using second-hand materials, mostly from buildings. My work is just not completed in a studio or in a closed environment indoors. It’s hard to say exactly where, but first I get out there and take a look around. It’s more of a dialogue, during which you get that feeling of what you want”. This outward-looking approach results in works that show fragments or abstractions of the body that bear the marks of the physical labour that has gone into their creation.
