SITE EIGHT / 20 July to 29 July 2011
SITUATE / 18 July to 3 August 2011
Lam creates large sculptural works using recycled materials, transforming these discarded objects into functional forms. These site-specific works explore issues relating to local culture, history, society and current affairs. In Micro Economy she highlights how industry has changed from 'producing' to 'serving and providing', and how the arts have also changed from the 'production of artwork' to the 'generation of creativity'.
