Is It Morning For You Yet?58th Carnegie International


Daniel Lie

Daniel Lie, (b. 1988, São Paulo; lives in Berlin) is a gender-nonconforming Indonesian-Brazilian artist whose work is inspired by the span of a lifetime and the duration and states of the elements—from the oldest and most affective memories, involving family and personal stories, to memories that objects transport across great distance and time. Lie produces sculptures and installations with other-than-human elements such as decaying matter, growing plants, and fungi that reveal different measures of time. Their research engages with science and religion, ancestry and present, rottenness and freshness, life and death, and attempts to break binary thought. They have had recent solo exhibitions at New Museum, New York; Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Casa do Povo, São Paulo; Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh; Performeum/Vienna Festwochen, Vienna; Change-Change, Budapest; Kampnagel, Hamburg; and Centro Cultural São Paulo. Their work has been presented in numerous group exhibitions, including at the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro; Atonal Festival, Berlin; Solar dos Abacaxis, Rio de Janeiro; Cemeti Institute for Art and Society, Yogyakarta; Valongo Festival, Santos; Osage Foundation, Hong Kong; 14th Yogyakarta Biennale; Frestas–Art Triennial, Sorocaba; MuseumsQuartier, Vienna; Cultural
