On view for the first time at WCMA, this installation by Anicka Yi (American, b. South Korea, 1971) immerses visitors in a sensorial experience. At its center, a large, illuminated dish contains hair gel with hundreds of cosmetic contact lenses pinned into its undulating surface, as a mentholated scent pervades the room.
