Kate Beynon: Li Ji: Warrior Girl
15 March – 14 April, 2001
Li Ji: Warrior Girl is an animated video and audio installation by Kate Beynon. Li Ji is the modern reincarnation of an ancient Chinese heroine by the same name. As she wanders through Melbourne at night, she encounters new hostilities. But unlike the treat of the maiden-eating python of her past life, Li Ji battles with the issue of being accepted as Australian. Li Ji: Warrior Girl is an exploration into the complex issues of race, identity, migration and belonging.
