Yarli Allison is a Hong Kong-Canadian born, UK/Paris-based artist with a multidisciplinary approach that traverses sculpture, performance, digital, film, drawing and installation. Often interacting with personas or creatures, these imagined worlds consist of her invented survival tactics and coping mechanisms.
Her works have been shown internationally in exhibitions and film festivals. Recent and upcoming shows (2021-2022) include Decriminalize Futures, Institute of Contemporary Arts: ICA, London; 55 Squared, Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong. Yarli is the recipient of the Hong Kong Art Council Project Grant and Canada Council for the Arts Travel Grant (2020).
Yarli graduated in 2017 with an MFA in Sculpture from Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, UK.
“Our lives have been oriented toward the digital 99.9% in pandemic times. I almost forgot about the tactility in artmaking, and greeting people with hugs. Now, for the Bagri Art Trail it’s time to combine both!”
