My visit to Myanmar was the seed for Our Labyrinth, inspired both by the gesture of removing one’s shoes before entering any temple, pagoda or mosque, and by the pristine space created for visitors by volunteers who constantly swept the sacred grounds.
For this project, as visitors walk among the galleries, a dancer will sweep a mound of rice through the space, along a labyrinthine path of their choosing.
This dancer may encounter obstacles along the way, but will navigate these silently and mindfully.
This project is a gift from the performers to the visitors, the providing of a “pure” space, both physically and spiritually, as they explore the sacred space created by the projects.

LEE Mingwei
Born in Taiwan in 1964 and currently living in Paris and New York City, Lee Mingwei creates participatory installations, where strangers can explore issues of trust, intimacy, and self-awareness, and one-on-one events, in which visitors contemplate these issues with the artist through eating, sleeping, walking and conversation. Lee's projects are often open-ended scenarios for everyday interaction, and take on different forms with the involvement of participants and change during the course of an exhibition.
