Bio

Alison Yip works through painting, wall treatments, writing and objects to find ways of speaking to the dissociative and dispersed nature of our cognitive apparatus and the persistence of figuration, especially through psycho-phenomena: Tulpamancy, psychic readings, ghost-frequencies. Recurring actors and everyday objects charged with unabashed animism appear in her works and put to the task of "figuring out". Playful use of various pictorial modes, everyday materials and perspectival regimes, generate explorations into broader experiences of the human senses, power relations, and sense of self, within the ever-constant flow of our present day reality.
