Yuyi’s Bodies : John Yuyi

What if the obsession with the self was finally the key to key to understanding others?

Through a relationship with the body that is omnipresent in her work, transforming her skin into a canvas and his narcissism into a paintbrush, John Yuyi confronts the gaze of the Other. Our individualities and connections fascinate the artist.
Her obsessive study of the Self is thought of as a way to connect with the Other and to heal his own neuroses. Her crazy vision of our world is revealed in the exhibition Yuyi's Bodies, which offers a plural vision of John Yuyi, alter ego of the artist.
Her strange relationship to the world, in a constant quest for approval, is thus confronted with the impossibility of putting the artist in a box.
