Until 6 November 2005
Admission free Gallery 3
As an artist, writer and philosopher, Lee Ufan explores the relationship between objects, ideas, consciousness and existence. Considered one of East Asia’s most significant artists, his works are recognised for their expression of infinity and emptiness (yohaku) — concepts which continue to inspire his drawings, prints, paintings and sculptures. In Lee’s work, the placement of brush on canvas, or the arrangement of stone and steel, creates a contemplative dialogue. This display showcases a series of drawings and prints recently acquired by the Gallery and includes Relatum 2002, previously featured in ‘APT 2002: Asia–Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’.
