Lose yourself in the work of influential Australian Chinese artist Lindy Lee. Slow down and take in shimmering- meditative and thought-provoking works in her largest survey exhibition to date- which draws on her experience of living between two cultures.Using a spectacular array of processes which include flinging molten bronze- burning paper and allowing the rain to transform surfaces- Lee draws on her Australian and Chinese heritage to develop works that engage with the history of art- cultural authenticity- personal identity and the cosmos. Key influences are the philosophies of Daoism and Ch'an (Zen) Buddhism- which explore the connections between humanity and nature.Curated by MCA Director- Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE- this exhibition will introduce audiences to over 70 works from across the artist's extensive career- from early photocopy artworks and wax paintings to recent large-scale installations and sculptures.CuratorElizabeth Ann Macgregor OBEAssociate CuratorMegan Robson
