Lu Pingyuan, “Shadow of the Shadow”, 2021

Lu Pingyuan, “Shadow of the Shadow”, 2021

“Shadow of the Shadow” is inspired by the physical characteristics of the artist character “Barbabeau” in the animation “Barbapapa”, whose body can transform freely. The artist then created this large sculpture installation using black light clay. This work is composed of more than 400 sculptures of various shapes that are derived from familiar forms within the experience of cultural and art history.
Lu Pingyuan believes that the plasticity of light clay is directly related to the physical characteristics of “Barbabeau”. This method of clay sculpting is also a fundamental method in his earliest understanding of sculpture. He regards these black and anthropomorphic sculptures as shadows, and names this group of sculpture installation “Shadow of the Shadow.”

Feng Mengbo - Big in China exhibition

Big in china opens 11 December

Published on: 15 November, 2021

Christmas comes early this year as the White Rabbit finally re-opens after the enforced lockdown and the install of our new exhibition Big in China on Saturday 11 December.

What does it mean to make it Big in China? It is no easy feat to captivate the attention of over a billion wandering eyes and minds. How do we draw the focus of so many unique individuals and make them move in unison? Artist Xu Zhen® shows us how it’s done by transforming into a kind of snake-charmer — mesmerising viewers with his colossal, dancing, twisting Corinthian column. Tang Nannan submerges us with mountainous waves until we become, as the Zen saying goes, simply one drop in an endless ocean. Lin Yan humbles and unites us as mortals under her vast, textural sky. These artists show us that it is not simply brute force that drives a nation and its people. Rather, it is the grand and overarching narratives, outstanding creativity and unique art practices that have the power to move a population en masse.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the Gallery very soon.

Lights out on Lumen

Lights out on Lumen

Published on: 23 August, 2021

Due to the ongoing COVID crisis and lockdowns in Sydney we have made the very difficult decision to pull the plug on our current exhibition, Lumen. The planned closing date for the exhibition was getting closer and closer with no real sign of the gallery being able to open up, and it seemed like such a shame to open for a few weeks only to close for another two months.

We will be taking the next few months to do a very slow, COVID-safe install for our next exhibition Big in China. As always, the health and safety of our staff is of utmost importance so we will be working with a restricted crew on site. The current situation in NSW makes it very difficult to make concrete plans, but if all goes well we hope to open the Gallery again in early December.

It’s incredibly disappointing that Lumen will go out with a whimper rather than the big bang it deserved, but we’d like to thank the tens of thousands of very patient visitors who queued around the block to see the show. Many apologies for those of you who missed out, but our next exhibition promises to be as equally fascinating. As always, huge thanks to our Gallery Attendants who worked valiantly with record-breaking attendances in these trying COVID-times.

We look forward to seeing you soon with Big in China!

BIG IN CHINA - UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Coming soon!

Published on: 8 August, 2021

We’re not going to give too much away about our next exhibition… just be prepared to be wowed! We are planning to open our 24th exhibition Big in China in the first week of January 2022, but given the various lockdowns we are experiencing that date is still to be confirmed! We will let you know as soon as the opening date is set in stone.
