View the virtual tour of the exhibition at Lismore Regional Gallery

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 major survey exhibition 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 and supported by Associate Curator Megan Robson, this exhibition will introduce audiences to key works from across the artist’s extensive career, from early photocopy artworks to recent installations and sculptures. 

This exhibition has been organised and toured by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
