Yin Ju Chen - Liquidation Maps. "By combining sacred geometry, alchemical symbols and mandalas with horary astrology – the creation of horoscopes for the exact time of a major incident or occurrence – Chen reinterprets important historical events through a series of intricate, map-like drawings, continuing her investigation of the concept of power and its role and function in society." Part of the 20th Biennale of Sydney.

This pic, The Performer, I loved though. Philip Bacon Galleries in Fortitude Valley, QLD
