Compass: Lindy Lee and the Cosmos (ABC TV, Sunday, May 12, 2024)


ABC’s Compass presents an episode featuring Chinese-Australian artist Lindy Lee and her extraordinary journey as an artist. The episode, airing on Sunday, May 12, 2024, at 6:30 p.m., offers viewers an insight into Lee’s most ambitious project, “The Ouroboros.”

In this episode, Compass examines the creation of Lindy Lee’s monumental steel sculpture, “The Ouroboros,” commissioned for the National Gallery of Australia’s 40th anniversary. The project, with a significant cost of 14 million dollars, sparks intrigue and conversation. Lee approaches this ambitious undertaking through the lens of her Buddhist beliefs and Chinese heritage, infusing her work with a profound philosophical dimension.

“The Ouroboros” draws its inspiration from the ancient symbol of a snake eating its own tail, a powerful representation of eternal return, birth, death, and renewal. The sculpture is designed as an immersive experience, inviting visitors to step inside and witness the captivating interplay of light and shadow created by its hundreds of perforations. Lee’s artwork often explores the connections between human existence and the vastness of the cosmos, and “The Ouroboros” promises to offer a meditative and contemplative space for audiences.
