What Once Was Imagined


Susie Freeman & Liz Lee: What Once Was Imagined

This summer I visited São Paulo to install a new work at Oscar Niemeyer’s OCA pavilion in Ibirapuera Park. The exhibition INVENTO is best described as a science museum designed by artists. Created by matching significant scientific advances from the past 150 years with artists whose work acts as a response to each invention, I used thousands of medicines in packets to make a giant Amazon mantilla which illustrates the development of pharmaceuticals from plants to pills.

The exhibition runs until October 4th after which we hope to mount What Once Was Imagined in a venue closer to home.
