Lindy Lee sculpture commission for National Gallery of Australia
Lindy Lee will create her most significant work to date, an immersive public sculpture, the Ouroboros, for the Gallery’s 40th anniversary.
Constructed from mirror-polished stainless steel, the sculpture will be positioned at the entrance to the National Gallery, standing around 4 metres high and weighing approx 13 tonnes. Ouroboros will be one of Australia’s first sustainable works of public art – minimising its carbon impact, incorporating recycled materials and maximising renewable energy.
‘This work will become a beacon for the National Gallery, daytime or night-time, pulsing with light and energy. During the day its highly polished mirror surface will reflect the imagery of the floating world. And at night the Ouroboros will be lit internally, returning its light to the world.’ – Lindy Lee.
