About the event

Situ’s sculptures and their auspicious dimensions are often directly informed by the I-Ching, an ancient Chinese divination text. Using pre-made modular blocks arranged on a slab, enjoy an I-Ching reading, generate a geometric hexagram and then place paper over the arranged tablet.

With the artist's guidance, rub inkstones over rice paper placed on the sculptural reliefs, consequently creating ink copies of the ancient geometric forms of hexagrams.

Tickets cost $10, and can be purchased here: I-Ching: Drawing ink from stone | City of Sydney - What’s On (


Kien Situ is a multidisciplinary Asian-Australian artist working across architecture, sculpture, film and installation. His practice deals with ruin, distance and time and it exists to challenge, deconstruct and meditate on notions of space, heritage and identity as the ‘other’ in society. His installation ‘TECTONIC’ is currently showing at Passage Gallery.
