Performance: Lee Mingwei’s Our Labyrinth
Turbine Hall, Level 0
Watch a performance by artist Lee Mingwei. In Our Labyrinth two dancers, wearing white shirts, sarongs, and ankle bells, move very slowly as they brush rice grains laid on the floor, their brooms becoming an extension of their bodies. As they create a form of labyrinth within a delineated space, they are simply guided by the rice, without any further direction. Supported by the Performance Activation Fund, Ministry of Culture – Taiwan and Tate Asia-Pacific Acquisitions Committee.

Film: Charwei Tsai – Between the Atom and the Universe
20.30–21.30, Starr Cinema, Natalie Bell Building, Level 1
Join artist Charwei Tsai as we screen and discuss a selection of short videos made over the past two decades. Emerging from the artist’s Practice of Tibetan Buddhism, the programme meditates on impermanence, ritual and nature through poetic engagements with transient objects such as ice, tofu, sea and sand. The screening opens and closes with the inscription of the ensō, a circle motif seen in Zen painting that is said to manifest the cycle of all living things.
