LINDY LEE: THE DARK OF ABSOLUTE FREEDOM
UQ ART MUSEUM
20 SEPTEMBER 2014 — 22 FEBRUARY 2015
'The Dark of Absolute Freedom' is Lindy Lee's first major survey of Lindy Lee's practice from when she came to prominence in the 1980s and as her practice evolved in tandem with key developments in Australian art, including the turn towards Asia. The exhibition explores her acclaimed early photocopy work, and the work that evolved following her embrace of Buddhism and her Chinese heritage. Also included are recent works in which she employs pyrographic techniques to evoke the infinity of the universe, and compositions comprising flung bronze. Works have been sourced from a range of public and private collections. Curated by Michele Helmrich
A fully illustrated publication accompanies the exhibition and includes essays by Associate Professor Rex Butler, Damian Smith and curator Michele Helmrich, as well as an interview with Lindy Lee conducted by Suhanya Raffel.
