Transfigured Elements

Material elements shift, repeat and transform in this exhibition by New York based artist Lili Chin. The works in this show venture into transitional states to reveal layered and textured surfaces through drawing, video and abstraction. Glacial erratics and the ocean allude to time and metamorphosis, blending permanence with temporality to express nature in a constant flux of stasis and change. 

In addition, Chin will project a night time 2-channel video work titled Laelaps, inspired by the Greek mythological dog that was placed amongst the stars as the constellation Canis Major. The video diptych will be most luminous once night falls and will continue until daybreak. Her commissioned video project is a partnership between Ely Center and Yale-China Association in celebration of Lunarfest18 on February 17.  Join the artist for hot tea and rice wine February 17, 4:30 – 5:30 pm for its premiere. The video will be screening until February 25.
