Len Lye | Heaven and Earth

Opening event Saturday August 4, from 6.00pm

Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth

Although well-known for the thrilling and sublime engineering of his kinetic sculpture, Lye’s passion for movement – across a variety of media that included film and painting too – went hand in hand with the seductive energies of the natural world.

This exhibition explores the environments that inspired Lye’s sense of wonder, from the crashing waves of his New Zealand childhood to the marvels of the heavens, both the scientific and mythic.
