#The Seamless Tomb

Lindy Lee’s practice explores her Chinese ancestry through Taoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism – employing ideas of chance, spontaneity and heritage to produce a galaxy of images that embody the intimate connection to human existence and cosmos. Her works are powerful, meditative and reveal themselves through time.

UAP collaborated with Lee and Sullivan+Strumpf  to deliver works displayed in the artist’s exhibition ‘The Seamless Tomb’ shown during September/October of 2017.

Lindy Lee is represented by Sullivan + Strumpf and Sutton Gallery.

There is a Zen koan (paradox) that requires the student to imagine being trapped in a seamless tomb. The darkness is so absolute and profound that not a single chink of light can penetrate. Here you are – entombed for eternity. Understandably you might feel paralysed, panicked, overwhelmed – even annihilated. The Zen question is: how can one find liberation in this situation? Actually, we are always stuck in this tomb – it is the nature of existence
