Sandie Yi is featured in Art in America

Disability studies doctoral student Chun-Shan (Sandie) Yi is featured in an Art in America article on “Recoding CripTech” that was on view at SOMArts in San Francisco through Feb. 25.

Perhaps the most moving work in the show is the series ‘Crip Couture’ (2011–) by Chun-Shan (Sandie) Yi. Yi’s handmade accessories are shown alongside photographs of them being worn by the artist and her crip kin. The works render the disabled and queer body as a site of extreme tenderness, and highlight technology’s role in the art of customized care.
