Li is a new site-specific installation by Shannon Lyons that responds to the unique social and institutional histories of the Bundoora Homestead Art Centre. formerly the Bundoora Repatriation Mental Hospital. The installation pays homage to the caregiving environment that once existed for patients at the hospital, and makes reference to ‘the shed’ – a kitchen located in an unused ward that became the locus for resident psychiatrist Dr John Cade’s important research and early experiments with lithium salts in the 1940s. The elements of the installation coalesce to shine a light on the biography of a doctor whose work would alter the course of treatment for people with bipolar disorder.

The gallery is open and practicing social distancing measures.
