National Gallery of Australia announces major sculpture commission by Lindy Lee

'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.

To be built at our Brisbane workshop, 'Ouroboros' will be constructed from mirror-polished recycled and reclaimed stainless steel and weighing approximately 13 tonnes; it will be the largest acquisition and one of the most significant public art commissions ever in Australia.

Additionally, as part of our One Earth strategy and initiative, 'Ouroboros' will be undertaking UAP’s Artwork Ingredients List measuring tool, which evaluates the carbon footprint and emissions to better understand how to reduce, reuse, recycle and create climate positive investments. This will be a great case study for our team in Australia as we cascade One Earth strategy and mindset across all of our studios and workshops.
