Sensory Agents

Centred around Len Lye’s noise-making kinetic sculpture and a set of audio recordings held in the Len Lye Foundation Archive, this exhibition focuses on the role sound plays in Lye’s work, and links him to a younger generation of artists who share his interest in the capacity of sound and music to elicit sensory responses.

Len Lye: Heaven and Earth
This exhibition explores the environments that inspired Lye’s sense of wonder, from the crashing waves of his New Zealand childhood to the marvels of the heavens, both the scientific and mythic.
