Yellow Peril explores the historical and ongoing impact and influence of mining and immigration on the Australian identity. Comprising video (filmed on location at Ballarat’s Sovereign Hill, a fictional gold rush ‘town’), screen-printed mylar blankets and sculpture, an archival image of the artist’s parents posed in front of Ron Robertson-Swann’s infamous public artwork Vault (1980), aka ‘Yellow Peril’, is the starting point for Eugenia Lim’s performative and playful exploration of the Chinese presence in Australia.
