Liliane Lijn

The Artist's Eye

The Douglas Hyde Gallery is pleased to present a new series of invited solo exhibitions in Gallery 2, titled ‘The Artist’s Eye.’ Acknowledging the crucial role artists play in influencing and shaping other artistic practices, this series asks those exhibiting in Gallery 1 to invite an artist of significant influence to present work in Gallery 2. In the second instalment in this series, Liliane Lijn has been invited to present her work here by Tamara Henderson.

Liliane Lijn is perhaps most renowned for her pioneering work in kinetic art. Since the early 1960s, and after the formative experience of carrying out her studio work from a plastics warehouse in New York, Lijn has woven her interest in science and industry into her practice. With access to industrial machinery and tools, and through studying the physics of energy and light, she began creating sculptures with technically accomplished interplays of technology and text. Her preoccupation with language and poetry as well as sophisticated material forms together impart her feminist vision of the body and the human condition.
