Enter the labyrinth of artist Lee Mingwei | Tate

Two dancers wearing sarongs with bells on their ankles move slowly across Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. They are brushing grains of rice into patterns. They are creating a winding labyrinth-like path. The dancers are performers in Lee Mingwei's Our Labyrinth, an artwork that brings a sense of ritual into the museum. It was inspired by Lee's experience of visiting ancient temples in Myanmar, where paths leading to temples are swept by volunteers. In this film we meet the artist and introduce his beautiful, participatory works. Lee creates installations exploring issues such as trust, intimacy, and self-awareness. He often takes everyday interactions as his starting point, from eating and sleeping to walking and conversation. Subscribe for weekly films: http://goo.gl/X1ZnEl
