CHANEL Connects – Season 2, episode 4 – Anicka Yi & John Akomfrah explore being more than human


Artist Anicka Yi expands the boundaries of art with work that explores biology, technology, and the merging of the two. Anicka connects with pioneering artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah whose latest film was described by critics as “the most haunting, wrenching new work of art I’ve seen so far this decade…”. In this episode, Diane Solway, Head of Arts &Culture Programmes at CHANEL, moderates a conversation between both artists as they explore if we are more than human, how artists can contribute to important societal issues, the meaning behind John’s film Five Murmurations, major disasters when preparing exhibitions, and what TV shows they binged watched during the pandemic.
