For over six decades, Liliane Lijn (b. 1939, New York, USA) has focused on the inter­section of visual art, literature, and scientific thought, creating an extensive array of works that include sculpture, site-specific installations, paintings, and moving images. Her body of work reveals a connection with Surrealist ideas, ancient mythologies, and feminist, scientific, and linguistic thought. A key focus of Lijn is considering how to visualise the invisible, using the latest materials and experimenting with reflection, motion, and light, as she explained, she wanted to “see the world in terms of light and energy”. She conducted research into invisibility, using and exploring the visualisation of electronic waves, forces, vibration, light, and sound. As Lijn noted, “I wanted people to see sound”.
