Overview

Performative Gifts of Song in the Art Gallery.

Lee Mingwei is a Taiwanese-American artist based in Paris and New York. His work hovers in a space across poetry, aesthetics, and intimate human exchange. His invitational projects heighten the senses and remind us to be present.

Sonic Blossom offers an extended performance of one-to-one exchanges in a Gallery space between singers and those visitors receiving the gift of song. Of Sonic Blossom, the artist writes, ‘Like Schubert’s Lieder, our own lives are brief, but all the more beautiful because of this.’

Originally created for the opening of South Korea’s National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Sonic Blossom has engaged audiences at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Centre Pompidou in Paris, and Museum MACAN in Jakarta.

Presented with support from OzAsia Festival 2019.
