In her exhibition at Dortmunder Kunstverein Alison Yip’s work builds up from painting and also uses wall treatments, texts and sculpture to explore the dispersed nature of our sensory apparatus and plays with the role of ambivalence in how we perceive social relations. Moving between a kind of world-building and surface attention, the paintings often integrate familiar materials such as distressed denim, which speak to the mimicry of time and experience.


The exhibition is  part of the culture program related to Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair and is supported by the Embassy of Canada in Berlin.
