Material Time Travel

In collaboration with the sculptor Leelee Chan, a world- and time-spanning project has been selected for the 8th BMW Art Journey – an initiative of BMW and ART Basel. Chan explores old and new materials in order to enter them into a dialogue with the present day. On her travels across Italy in 2020, she learned about traditional techniques used to extract and work marble, copper, iron and bronze. In Switzerland and Germany, including at BMW's Munich headquarters, she met engineers and scientists in order to lean about nanotechnologies and postindustrial materials. This richly illustrated volume brings together essays, documentary photographs, and works inspired by the trip to examine the core questions of Chan's project: What does it mean to be a sculptor in the current time? What can we learn from the materials of yesterday? And how can tomorrow's materials ensure our sustainable future?

LEELEE CHAN’s (*1984) whimsical and intimate sculptures are composed of everyday objects and reflect her experiences in Hong Kong. She earned an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work is exhibited worldwide.
