In the center of the artist’s book by David Zink Yi is the two-channel video installation Horror Vacui (2008). The work documents rehearsals of the band De Adentro y Afuera, which Zink Yi founded together with Cuban musicians, and combines them with recordings of music-based rituals of Afro-Cuban origin: Cajon, Tambor Batá and Wiro. Zink Yi juxtaposes the band’s rehearsals and the ritual practices in the video - as in the book - in an equilibrated way, thus revealing the structural similarity of these everyday actions. The essence of this similarity lies in the nature of imagining space as collective plenitude, as polyrhythm. Horror Vacui stands for Zink Yi’s artistic involvement with cultural everyday practices such as dance, music or meals - not so much as ethnic attributions rather than as examples of the establishment of identity and community. It is the artist’s first comprehensive publication.
